In May, the Port of Gdansk Authority presented the final concept of this investment. In its final form, the Central Port will consist of a complex of 6 to 8 terminals and deep-water quays used for different purposes.
Around 410 hectares of seaside land will be used to operate terminals of various types, including areas for containers, passengers, offshore operations, LNG or shipbuilding facilities. The investment will be implemented in the form of public-private partnership.
We believe that the construction of such a complex infrastructure must respond to market demands. We want private investors to decide which terminals should be located here. On the other hand, we want to provide our future business partners and ourselves a professional project consultancy for this task. For this reason, today we signed an agreement with specialists in public-private partnerships
commented Lukasz Greinke, President of the PGA.
DS Consulting is a company, specialising in advising public entities, which has signed a cooperation agreement with the PGA. The company will conduct preliminary analyses, including the feasibility study, and will provide consultancy for transactions, covering economic, financial, market, technical and legal issues.
It will also cooperate with the PGA for more than 4 years. During this period, the company will support the Port Authority in talks with possible partners and also in preparing applications for financing, creating documentation for contracts in public-private partnership with individual contractors.
