Port of Gdynia Authority will receive funding for the construction of an intermodal terminal at the Gdynia Port Logistics Center.
Port of Gdynia Authority has announced that its application for EU funding for the construction of an intermodal terminal at the Gdynia Port Logistics Center has been granted. This means that the investor will receive a subsidy of 50% of the eligible costs.
Port of Gdynia has been qualified to sign a grant agreement for the requested amount of eligible costs of €16,787,789 (approx. PLN 75 million) with a funding level of 50% or €8,393,894 (approx. PLN 37.5 million). The application was submitted in the competition under the Connecting Europe Facility - Transport - Military Mobility (CEF2 Transport - Military Mobility).
- The project, centered on the construction of an intermodal terminal on the grounds of the Port of Gdynia Logistics Center, will be key to increasing the capacity for transshipment of goods from sea to rail, including as the port's first loading site directly from a fixed, overrun loading ramp. This is an important step, especially with the growing importance of intermodality in transportation in mind - Jacek Sadaj, president of the Port of Gdynia Authority S.A., said.
The project will be implemented in the western part of the Port of Gdynia, which is the main naval base of the Polish Navy, which cooperates in the coordination of the EU and NATO Armed Forces in Poland authorized to transship military equipment. The area of the Logistics Center is used for transshipment of containers, vehicles and oversized cargo and military equipment, and the new intermodal terminal will enable fuller use of existing maneuvering and storage yards and increase the level of investment in the area.
The aim of the project is to adapt the infrastructure of the Port of Gdynia to the requirements of dual civil-military use, and thus to increase the share of intermodal transport by building a new intermodal rail terminal on the premises of the Logistics Center.
The project will include the construction of an intermodal terminal consisting of 2 loading tracks with a length of approximately 750 meters terminated by a fixed, overrun loading ramp, an access track and a communication track. The project includes a concrete maneuvering and unloading yard, internal maneuvering roads and a rail-road system with rail traffic control devices. The project will provide handling capacity under the reach of container cranes - road and track on 3 tracks of the terminal. The terminal will provide the capacity to handle cargo weighing 100 t and vehicles weighing up to 120 t, including basic tanks with a maximum axle load of 12.23 t/axle (road transport) and a minimum load of 22.5 t/axle (rail transport) meeting the requirements of dual civil-military use.
The project will contribute to increasing the cross-border mobility of EU/NATO forces and will eliminate the bottleneck in the Port of Gdynia's infrastructure in the Baltic-Adriatic corridor in the TEN-T network.
The project is scheduled for completion on August 31, 2026.
