Terminal T5, according to the tender information, is to serve as a deep-water base for the installation of offshore wind farms (OWIB; Offshore Wind Installation Base). T5 is to be an extension of the existing T1 terminal, overlooking the waters of the outer part of the Port of Gdańsk located on the Bay of Gdańsk. For this purpose, it is necessary to convert a reservoir with an area of approximately 21 ha. The terminal will be equipped with mooring quays for the import of components delivered by ships and for the export of installation ships (expedition of ready-made wind farm sets to the farm), as well as a Ro-Ro ramp.

The assumptions included, among others, space intended for the initial assembly of wind farm elements, as well as storage areas. According to the tender designs, the T5 terminal will be equipped with two quays - one 451 meters long (on the north-western side), which is an extension of the existing T1 terminal quay, enabling simultaneous service of e.g. two installation vessels, while on the north side there will be a 349-meter transhipment quay and 105-meter Ro-Ro zone with a ramp. There will be an access road on the south-eastern side – from this side it is possible to add a T4 terminal in the future.
