On the 1st of February 2016, the annual results press conference was organised by the Port of Gdynia Authority SA. The Management Board presented the 2015 roundup, as well as their investment plans in the context of both the next three-year plan (2016—2018) and the new financial perspective of the Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment 2014—2020.

The year 2015 was a good one for the Port of Gdynia. The cargo handled amounted to 18.2 million tonnes, which is the second best result in the history of the port. According to the preliminary (waiting for the assessment by a statutory auditor) financial statements of the Port of Gdynia Authority SA, the company generated in 2015 the net profit of PLN 47.5 million. The main reason for the difference between the profits in 2014 and in 2015 (107.9 million in 2014) was the amount from the sale of the general cargo terminal (45 million).

An important factor behind the good financial result is the constant investment activity of the Port Authority. In 2015, the Port of Gdynia Authority SA completed five key investment projects co-financed by the EU as part of the Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment 2007—2013.

In 2016, the Port Authority have begun the implementation of their strategy for the period up to 2027. The main source of financing will be the port’s own resources supplemented with EU funds. The key investment project for the port in the next few years will be the deepening of the approaches the Port of Gdynia and its basins (Stages I—III). The project is of key importance for the Port of Gdynia to retain its competitive advantage in the field of container handling.
