A new crude oil terminal constructed by PERN “Przyjazn” in the Baltic port of Gdansk, Poland, should come online at the beginning of 2016.
PERN’s chairman Marcin Moskalewicz was cited in local media as saying that 49 percent of the works have been completed.
“Even though it is a large investment and the first one of its kind in the country, we are one month ahead of schedule,” Moskalewicz told the Rzeczpospolita daily. “We haven’t had any technical delays, so we are expecting delivery at the end of 2015,” he added.
Construction got underway at the beginning of 2014, with the terminal being able to store 375,000 cbm of crude oil and another 325,000 cbm of other chemical products once completed.
“First revenues should start flowing at the beginning of 2016,” Moskalewicz added. According to IDSBUD SA, the leader of a Polish-Slovak-Ukrainian consortium which won the PERN tender, the installation is the first crude terminal of its kind in Poland.
