POLISH CITIES INVEST IN MARINA EXPANSIONS
Gdansk and Sopot developing projects to expand berthing capacities
The authorities of Gdansk and Sopot, two cities located on the Polish Baltic Sea shore, are carrying out projects to expand the berthing capacities of their respective marinas. Gdansk has launched a tender to expand its Górki Zachodnie facility, while Sopot recently initiated construction work to add new berths to the city’s marina.
In Gdansk, the marina will be expanded from the current 60 berths to 180 berths in the first phase of the planned investment, and as many as 230 berths in the project’s second phase, according to the information obtained by local news site Trojmiasto.pl.
The municipal authorities will open the submitted bids by the end of April. The selected contractor will have 12 months following the signing of the potential contract to expand the marina in Górki Zachodnie, in the city’s eastern part.
In Sopot, the city is planning to raise the marina’s berthing capacity from 101 to 129 berths. The investment will also allow to add new facilities to the marina. Construction work on the project began earlier this month, according to Anna Dyksińska, a spokesperson for Sopot’s municipal authorities.
