HES Gdynia grain terminal expansion underway

HES Gdynia grain terminal expansion underway

(Posted on 19/09/23)

HES Gdynia in Poland has started the construction works of a grain storage facility extension in port of Gdynia, in one of the most important and traffic-heavy hubs for wheat in the region.

The investment project already holds construction approval, therefore ground excavation work began on the site immediately. A new flat grain warehouse, equipped with a transfer conveyor system on supply and discharge routes, will be raised, aiming to improve the terminal’s grain handling and storage capabilities, as grain shipment volumes continue to grow annually.

The new warehouse will be capable of storing ca. 64.000 tons which will also alleviate recent grain storage capacity shortages at Polish ports resulting from supply chain disruptions triggered by the war in Ukraine. In the scope of the project, there are two new loading and discharge points for trucks and railcars, including a bottom discharge technology with underway weighing. This is currently expected by customers and supports decarbonization, as it will reduce grains delivery on roads.

The expansion is expected to be completed in Q4 2024, thereafter allowing HES Gdynia to offer a higher level of efficiency by accelerating the logistics processes at HES terminal and throughout the port of Gdynia. The new investment will also enhance quality, safety and capabilities at the terminal, providing much-needed space for a supply constrained market, underpinning the terminal as a reliable logistic grain partner, strategically positioned for domestic and non-domestic supplies.

HES Gdynia Bulk Terminal is one of the largest bulk sea terminals in Poland, handling between 6-7 million tonnes of commodities per year. For decades, the terminal has developed advanced skills, experience and expertise in port operations, handling a wide range of dry and liquid bulk products operating on 4 water quays with max draft 13m (next year 15m). HES Gdynia is well positioned to support grain and animal feed trade, together with coal import and a diverse range of bulk commodities being a crucial gateway to both domestic and international markets.

In recent years, HES Gdynia Bulk Terminal has upgraded the facility, technology and operations, meeting logistic requirements changes and supporting its customers in building more sustainable supply chains. The company pursues sustainable growth through the acquisitions of new electric, hybrid or low emission technology equipment to run smoothly, efficiently, in a safe manner, whilst also mitigating against climate change.
