Baltic Hub starts third deep-water quay construction

Baltic Hub establishes third deep-water quay

Baltic Hub, a member of the PSA Group, has commenced construction works for the new T3 terminal in Poland.

The full completion of the T3 terminal, with the commissioning of the entire fleet of equipment, is planned for the end of 2025.

Construction began in October 2022, with a consortium of Budimex and DEME as the contractors. A 36-hectare artificial island has already been created. With all dredging works completed, the focus has now shifted to intensive civil works on the island.

The 717-metre long, 17.5-metre-deep quay, along with advanced storage yards, will feature state-of-the-art equipment, including seven ship-to-shore quay cranes and 20 semi-automatic yard cranes. The first batch of this high-tech equipment is scheduled for delivery in September 2024.

T3’s semi-automated systems will reportedly introduce new technological solutions that boost productivity and efficiency while allowing operators to manage operations remotely and safely from ergonomically designed workstations.

“The T3 investment is a response to the region’s growing logistics needs and global trends in maritime trade,” said Charles Baker, CEO of Baltic Hub.

“Baltic Hub’s handling capacity will be ramped up by an additional 1.5 million TEU to 4.5 million TEU per year, establishing it as one of the largest container terminal complexes in Europe. This significant increase in operational potential presents new development opportunities for our customers and benefits both the Polish economy as a whole and the markets of Central and Eastern Europe.”

In April 2024, PSA BDP announced the launch of its first office in Paranaque City, the Philippines, as part of its plan to accelerate its growth in Southeast Asia.

More recently, PSA Singapore and Pacific International Lines (PIL) completed their first experiment of low-carbon green cargo to create a sustainable supply chain ecosystem.
