By Sarah Ann McCay08 April 2014
Mott MacDonald is to carry out construction design services for a new €160 million quay at the Port of Gdańsk in Poland after being appointed by Deepwater Container Terminal Gdańsk (DCT Gdańsk).
The design work includes an upgraded terminal capable of handling 3 million TEU (20ft equivalent container units) a 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 UK.”
Mott MacDonald will also be responsible for designing a new deep-water quay adjacent to the existing deep-water quay, and new container stacking yards, which will link with existing facilities.
The expansion, due to be completed by the end of 2016, also includes the deepening of the existing harbour basin, new buildings and redevelopment of existing buildings, new utility facilities such as electrical substations and a main substation building, as well as underground utilities installations.
