The implementation of SOP-T projects in progress
On 5 June this year, at the head office of the Port of Gdansk Authority SA, a contract was signed on the implementation of two projects co-financed from the European Regional Development Fund within the framework of the Sectoral Operational Programme - Transport. They involve access to the Przemyslowe Quay area and the expansion of onshore and road infrastructure at the Westerplatte Ferry Terminal. Another two projects under the SOP-T are already in progress and they focus on access improvement of the Port Free Zone at the Port of Gdansk as well as the modernisation of the entrance to the Inner Port.
The contract was signed by: Andrzej Kasprzak - President of the Board of the Port of Gdansk Authority SA, Pawel Adamowicz - Mayor of the City of Gdansk and, on behalf of the main contractor, Wlodzimierz Wlodarczyk - President of the Board of Warbud SA. This company is heading the consortium selected by way of a tender procedure. The consortium also includes the company Vinci Construction Grands Projets SAS.
The four projects aimed at the improvement of access to the Port of Gdansk have been supplemented by a project started jointly by PGA SA and the Dredging and Underwater Works Company Ltd. This project involves dredging the port canal from 11.2 to 11.6 metres, which will enable vessel traffic with a draft of 10.6 metre.
