Container terminal in Świnoujście with location decision

Another important step in the implementation of the container terminal in Świnoujście. The Szczecin and Świnoujście Seaports Authority has just received the location decision for this investment. The decision was issued by the West Pomeranian Voivode, Adam Rudawski.

The construction of a deep-water container terminal in Świnoujście is one of the elements included in the “Seaport Development Program until 2023”. Its goal is to consolidate the position of Polish ports in the Baltic Sea basin and create them as key nodes in global supply chains for Central and Eastern Europe.

-The container terminal in Świnoujście is a strategic investment in both the economic and state security areas. It is one of the most important investment projects in our maritime economy. It should be noted that we start the entire process practically from the beginning. However, we are determined to complete the construction of the terminal. Polish sea ports systematically record an increase in the number of transshipments, and the container terminal will make this number even higher. Thanks to this investment, the largest container ships in the world will call in Western Pomerania. Without a doubt, this is a great opportunity for the development of the Polish maritime economy – emphasizes Deputy Minister of Infrastructure, Arkadiusz Marchewka.

ZMPSiŚ SA has created a general framework for the concept of an environmentally friendly terminal. Ultimately, the terminal will be able to handle up to 2 million TEU per year, servicing two ships at the same time, one 400 m long and one 200 m long. According to this idea, the selected entity is to implement the project by developing part of the Pomeranian Bay and adjacent properties.

It is also worth paying attention to the specific nature of the terminal’s operations, the location of which minimizes the impact on the surroundings and the natural environment. This is also important for the residents of the Warszów district, which will be separated from the terminal by a natural forest wall. (ed.
