The Czeskie Quay will be ready in June!

The Norweskie, Czeskie and Duńskie Quays will soon become an important part of the Port of Szczecin. 14 of the 16 sections of the Czeskie Quay have already been concreted. This means that stage 1 can be opened as early as the summer season. The contractor, the NDI Group, is working on all fronts of the project.

Reinforced concrete and track work is being completed on stage 1 of the Czeskie Quay. The railway and crane tracks have been laid.

“We expect to obtain the occupancy permit for stage 1 of the Czeskie Quay in June this year. At the same time, once the occupancy permit has been granted, we will proceed with stage 2 of the Czeskie Quay extension, followed by stages 3 and 4. First, we will carry out demolition work, then pile driver work both from land and water and then reinforced concrete work,” says Piotr Arabczyk, Project Director at the NDI Group.

Reinforced concrete work is also being carried out on the Norweskie Quay, where more than 60 people are working. The team will start work on the track in July. The Duńskie Quay, on the other hand, is already 99% complete.

The Dębicki Canal is still being dredged. The dredged material is deposited on the island of Ostrów Mieleński. The dredging work is done in the amount of 0.6 million m3 from approx. 1.5 million m3. At the same time, telecommunications, power, water and sewage works are underway. The earth stockpile area on the island will have a capacity of approx. 1 mln m3. When all the dredging is completed, the Canal will be 12.5 metres deep. This will be another part of the fairway starting in Świnoujście.

“Most of the work is still ongoing. The Czeskie and Słowackie Quays are divided into four stages. Each subsequent stage can be started only after obtaining the occupancy permit of the previous one. Such a division is due to the work of the port, which has to operate all the time during the reconstruction,” adds Piotr Arabczyk. Project Director at the NDI Group

The investment is one of the flagship projects being carried out by ZMPSiŚ in the Port of Szczecin. It aims to improve access to the port of Szczecin in the area of the Dębicki Canal. Modernisation of the quays will ensure they can handle the largest ships.

The project is co-financed by the European Union from the Cohesion Fund under the Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment. The gross cost of the project is approx. PLN 343.1 million. The investor of the investment is Zarząd Morskich Portów Szczecin i Świnoujście S.A. and the general contractor is the NDI Group.
