General – Dredging
DEME has secured a contract for dredging and reclamation works in the Port of Gdańsk, Poland.
This represents the second major dredging contract for DEME in Poland.
The new contract was signed with DCT Gdańsk, the operator of the largest container terminal on the Baltic Sea and owned by PSA International, the Polish Development Fund and IFM Global Infrastructure Fund.
DEME will work in a consortium with the Polish construction group Budimex.
The new container terminal in Gdańsk includes a deep-water quay of 717 metres long and 17.5 metres deep and a yard area of 36.5 hectares. DEME will lead the dredging and reclamation works to create the 36-hectare platform that will form the base of the new terminal.
Dredging and reclamation works will start in September 2022 and will be followed in early 2023 by the construction of the northern and southern walls and the main berth.
