The Kashubian basin in the port of Szczecin wants to modernize five companies
Five companies submitted bids to the Szczecin and Świnoujście Seaports Authority in response to a tender for construction works as part of the investment "Improving access to the port in Szczecin in the Kashubian Basin". The bidders valued their services from almost PLN 223 to nearly PLN 296 million, with the assumed budget of PLN 286 million.
As part of the investment in the Kashubian Basin of the Szczecin port, among others, new Dąbrowieckie quay, and the Katowice and Chorzowskie quays will be modernized. The port waters will be 12.5 meters deep.
"Improving access to the port in Szczecin in the Kashubian Basin region" are, next to "Improving access to the port in Szczecin in the region of the Dębicki Canal", two powerful investment packages, the effect of which will be the adaptation of the Szczecin port infrastructure to the current trends on the maritime transport market. Both are related to the deepening and modernization of the Świnoujście-Szczecin fairway up to 12.5 meters. And although the deepening itself is carried out by the Maritime Office in Szczecin, the role of the port management is precisely to adapt the port quays in Szczecin to the new parameters of the fairway, so that larger ships with more goods than nowadays reach the port.
Investment projects are co-financed by the Cohesion Fund, the Infrastructure and Environment Program. The works are scheduled to be completed by the end of 2023.
The Szczecin and Świnoujście Seaports Authority is the undisputed investment leader in the region. From the moment we are in the EU, thanks to EU support, the amount of investments made by the Company in the Szczecin-Świnoujście port complex will exceed two billion zlotys.
