Poland invests in new marinas and yacht harbor
The municipality of Puck in northwest Poland has secured around PLN 7.4m (US$2m) from the regional authorities to co-finance its PLN 31m (US$8.2m) project to build a new marina on the shores of the Baltic Sea.
The facility will increase Puck’s berthing capacity by some 100 craft, with construction work expected to be completed by the end of 2023, reports local news site Puck.naszemiasto.pl
Meanwhile, Sopot, one of Poland’s leading tourist destinations, also on the Baltic, has awarded a contract to develop the city’s marina to local construction firm Hydrobudowa Gdansk Ltd.
Under the plan, the investment in Sopot will raise the facility’s berthing capacity, allowing the marina to accommodate an additional 28 craft. The municipality has handed Hydrobudowa Gdansk a design and build contract, and construction work on the project is expected to be completed before next summer, according to local daily Dziennik Baltycki.
The project in Sopot is worth more than PLN 3.2m (US$850,000). An allocation that is to be provided by the EU under the bloc’s Cohesion Funds will cover as much as 80% of the cost.
