UNDER a public-private partnership scheme, the Port of Gdynia Authority is seeking tenders to bid for a US$1 billion construction of the outerport, reports Colchester's Seatrade Maritiime News.
The project, to be preceded by a "competitive dialogue" with would-be bidders consists of the construction of a new deep-water container terminal with an annual transshipment capacity of 2.5 million TEU to accommodate 18,000-TEU baltmax ships and to open in 2028.
The private partner must be a world-class operator that will be able to attract cargo trade to the Port of Gdynia, sakd Maciej Ziomek, associate partner at EY Transaction Advisory Services Transport & Infrastructure Sectors Leader.
Land access infrastructure is currently being developed by Polish State Railways. The outer port will have a positive impact on the City of Gdynia, for the country and for regional business.
