Safety and replacement of the floating stock at the Port of Gdansk with the use of OPI Funds
In December 2015, the Centre for EU Transport Projects concluded two funding contracts with the Port of Gdansk Authority SA. The contracts for the projects 'Investment to improve safety at the Port of Gdansk' and 'Replacement of the floating stock of the Port of Gdansk Authority' were signed by Dorota Raben and Jerzy Melaniuk on the side of the beneficiary, and by Pawel Szacillo on the side of the CEUTP.
Investment to improve safety at the Port of Gdansk
Total value: over 4.9 million PLN
EU funding: over 4 million PLN
The project completed in 2015 was aimed at improving port safety by modernising the fire fighting vessel Strazak 6 and equipping the newly created Emergency Centre of the Port of Gdansk Authority SA with communications and computer equipment.
As a direct result of the project there will be a reduction in the amount of time required to reach a unit in need of assistance at the outer limits of the area under the responsibility of the administrative boundaries of the Gdansk port.
Replacement of the floating stock of the Port of Gdansk Authority
Total value: over 9.85 million PLN
EU funding: 3.2 million PLN
The investment allowed the purchased of a hydrographic-inspection floating unit and an ecological-rescue rapid response boat.
The new equipment will expand the area at the bottom of the basin that can be examined while enhancing the quality of examinations carried out within the administrative boundaries of the Gdansk port.
Both projects received funds from 7.2. The development of maritime transport of the Infrastructure and Environment Programme 2007-2013.
