On 25 November 2015, PGA SA and a Polish-Danish consortium of PRCiP and Rohde Nielsen signed an agreement regarding dredging of the turning basin at Port of Gdansk.
The agreement between the Port of Gdansk Authority SA and a consortium of two companies – Przedsiebiorstwo Robot Czerpalnych i Podwodnych Sp zoo and Rohde Nielsen – concerns the installation of a turning basin located between the Ore Pier, the Southern Breakwater and the boundary of the existing fairway to the DCT 1.
The depth of the basin will be 16.5m to allow the passage of vessels with a draft of up to 15m. This depth is suitable for ships entering the Baltic via the Danish straits. The basin will cover an area of 22.4 hectares.
The dredging operation will involve more than 1,600,000m3 of material excavated from the bottom of the basin. After the completion of the dredging operation, the area will be demarcated with navigation buoys in accordance with the requirements of the Maritime Office in Gdynia.
The project is due to be completed in August 2016 at a cost of approximately 22 million zl.
