Date of publication: 11.06.2023

Amanda C has moored at the Oliwskie Quay in Gdańsk. This is the largest ship that has been serviced by Magrol Przeładunek, the operator of one of the grain terminals located at the Port of Gdańsk. The bulk carrier came to the Port of Gdańsk from Pori (Finland) to collect corn. Loading takes place in direct relation from cars, wagons and warehouse.

Due to its poor technical condition, the Oliwskie Quay underwent a thorough reconstruction in recent years. The fairway was also deepened and the parameters of the berths themselves increased, including in particular their depth and the length of the mooring lines, and the railway and network infrastructure, including the energy infrastructure, was modernized. This investment was part of a large project entitled "Modernization of the fairway, expansion of quays and improvement of navigation conditions in the Inner Port", co-financed in 85 percent by by the EU from the CEF instrument. Its implementation takes several years, and the total cost was over PLN 595 million. Improved navigational parameters of the fairway significantly improved the safety of navigation. Thanks to such investments, the contractors of the Port of Gdańsk can develop. A perfect example of this is Magrol Przeładunek.

– So far, before the reconstruction of the quay, we have handled smaller vessels with a capacity of 3-5 thousand tons. tone. Now we have much greater possibilities, which allows us to systematically increase the volume of transshipped goods. In addition, we make an investment effort on our own to increase the storage capacity and, consequently, the reloading capacity. For the first time in history, we handled a vessel with a capacity of 30,000 tons, which allows us to look at the development of our terminal with great hope – explain Barbara Romanowska-Mucha, President of the Management Board and Alicja Mucha and Jarosław Gutfrański, Members of the Management Board.

The vessel was loaded on behalf of Cefetra Polska Sp z o.o. and said goodbye to the Port of Gdańsk on June 7. Amsterdam will be the next port of call. The bulk carrier is 180 m long, 30 m wide, GT is 23,456 t, and DWT - 34,449 t. It sails under the flag of the Marshall Islands.
