Global engineering consultancy firm, Mott MacDonald, has successfully gained a project to carry out construction design services for a new €160 million quay at the Port of Gdansk, Poland.
According to the contract, Mott MacDonald will be responsible for the design of a new deep water quay for Deepwater Container Terminal Gdansk (DCT Gdansk), adjacent to the pre-existing one.
They will also be responsible for the design of a new cargo stacking yard, which will facilitate the needs of both quays.
Works will also include; the deepening of the existing harbour basin, construction of new buildings and the re-development of previous buildings.
Furthermore Mott MacDonald will be involved in the construction of an underground utilities instillation, alongside a main electrical substation and any subsequent substations around the port.
Once upgraded, the terminal will easily be able to welcome the world’s largest post-panamax vessels and handle up to three million TEU per year.
Marian Kurlanda, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “DCT Gdańsk is Poland’s largest and fastest growing container facility and is the only deepwater terminal in the Baltic Sea region which receives direct ocean vessel calls from the Far East.”
“Our appointment to this prestigious project builds on our current involvement in major international port projects in Taiwan, South Africa, Canada and the United Kingdom.”
The quay is due to be completed by the end of 2016.
