PGA SA has acquired PLN 17.5 million in financial aid from the Cohesion Fund for the expansion and modernisation of an intermodal container terminal which is due to completion by the end of 2015.
The investment project involves the expansion and modernisation of infrastructure and facilities for the purposes of a future container terminal which will be situated at the Szczecinskie Quay. The project is aimed at improving the technology and the quality of services provided by the "port intermodal transport node". The scope of the project includes enlarging storage, traffic and parking areas, improving water supply and sewage system management and the supply of utilities, as well as providing the lighting and the fencing to the area. The project will boost the quality of road-sea, rail-road-sea and rail-sea transport services in terms of unit turnaround time and improved container handling and storage facilities.
The objective of the project is to provide approximation of throughput capacity across all operational nodes of the terminal through adjusting storage and handling capacity of facilities adjacent to the quay to the throughput capacity of the quay.
Successful completion of the project will enable substantial growth in the throughput capacity of the terminal.
