DCT Gdansk celebrates Phase 1 completion

Friday, October 05, 2007
The completion of the first phase of development of Poland’s new deepwater container terminal, DCT Gdansk, was celebrated yesterday with a reception onboard the cruise vessel Lady Assa. DCT Gdansk management and directors were joined by public, city and port officials, representatives from the international shipping community, and civil engineers involved in the construction process as the vessel sailed from her berth at Motlawa in Gdansk’s ‘old town’ to DCT Gdansk’s 650m of completed quay.

With Phase One of the terminal development up and running, DCT Gdansk recently announced weekly calls by leading global container line CMA CGM and feeder specialist Team Lines, while Lithuania-based feeder operator ISN has also initiated a weekly call between DCT Gdansk and Kaliningrad. Alongside to greet guests at the facility yesterday was Team Lines’ 868TEU feeder vessel Birkaland, providing a practical demonstration of Poland's most modern container terminal in action.
