THE Baltic Container Terminal (BCT) at the port of Gydnia, the Polish unit of International Container Terminal Services Inc (ICTSI), handled a milestone 500,000 TEU by the end of last year.
The operator hosted a 40th anniversary celebration at the Gydnia terminal that was marked by the loading of the container on board the MSC Veronique containership, reported Seatrade Maritime News, Colchester, UK.
'More than hitting our targets, this new record highlights Baltic Container Terminal's capability to continuously outpace market growth, and our readiness to serve the vibrant Polish economy and the Eastern European markets,' said CEO Wojciech Szymulewicz.
The Port of Gdynia Authority and the Centre for European Union Transport Projects have just signed a contract for the reconstruction and electrification of the port's rail access, to boost the port's operations. The project involves rebuilding the intermodal terminal to complement BCT's operations on the landside.
To enable BCT to cater for growing demands, in the pipeline is the installation of new handling equipment for both sea and land operations, rehabilitation of the existing quay line, deepening of harbour basins, more storage areas and enhanced IT systems.
