During the first four months of 2021, transshipments at the fuel terminal in the Port of Gdynia increased by 57.5% – compared to the period from January to April 2020, with a 181% increase in April 2021. (200 755.24 tonnes) compared to the result of April 2020. (71,434.52 tonnes). This year promises to be a record year – confirming that the economy is getting better and better after a pandemic year. Already more than 1 million tonnes of fuels have been transhipped this year by PERN’s fuel depot at the Port of Gdynia; in recent years such a result was achieved only in mid-July. The record was broken in mid-May.
We are planning to maintain the current pace in the coming months despite a number of repair and investment tasks at the base – emphasises Michał Drzazga, the manager of the PERN base in Dębogórze.
The terminal in Dębogórz, which uses the SPPP fuel terminal (Liquid Fuel Handling Plant) on the breakwater of the Port of Gdynia, is currently one of the pillars of the diversified system of providing Poland with liquid fuels. It is the only transshipment terminal in Poland that allows fuel to be imported on a large scale by sea from any region of the world.
The growing interest in fuel imports by sea has strengthened our cooperation with PERN. Together we aim to strengthen the Port of Gdynia as an independent maritime fuel hub. We strive for complementarity of investments, so that our infrastructure is adapted to the current and future needs of the market – says Jacek Sadaj, vice-president of the Port of Gdynia Authority SA.
Investments in infrastructure allow us to significantly increase the loading potential of the fuel base and distribute fuel in volumes in line with the current and future needs of the domestic fuel market.
