DEME has secured a contract for dredging and reclamation works in the Port of Gdansk in Poland.

The new contract was awarded by DCT Gdansk, the operator of the port’s container terminal. DEME will work in a consortium with the Polish construction group Budimex.

The new container terminal in Gdansk will include 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.

Scheduled to open for commercial operations in 2024, the full completion of the terminal is planned for the second quarter of 2025. In its first phase, the new terminal will increase DCT Gdansk’s handling capacity by 1.7 million TEUs to a total of 4.5 million TEUs per year.
