The Antwerp-based Sea-Invest group is to invest between €40 million and €50 million in the construction of a bulk cargo terminal at the Polish port of Gdansk. The new facility, which will be the largest terminal of its kind in the Baltic, will be able to handle both import and export ore, coal, biomass and other dry bulks, whereas the existing coal terminal is dedicated purely to export consignments.

Gdansk is also building a smaller dry bulk terminal, worth €10 million, in the inner port area, which will handle much smaller vessels. This is to be operated by the Malteurop Groupe, the leading malt producer in the world.
