Minerals DC Nowak is a key partner of this investment. In addition to the supply of aggregates for the production of concrete mixtures, prefabricated caisson elements and the breakwater structure, we also supply the material directly to the structure. The total volume of deliveries is close to 1,000,000.00 tonnes. The breakwater at the Northern Port in Gdańsk and the modernization of its system is one of the first DREDGING & OFFSHORE works for our company in Poland. We hope that this branch of our activity will constantly develop, helping us gain a leading position in our domestic market.

The project is co-financed by the Cohesion Fund under the Operational Program Infrastructure and Environment 2014-2020. The period of execution of both contracts is 30 months from the date of signing the contract.

The investment, consisting in the modernization of the system of protective breakwaters in the Northern Port, is located in the Gulf of Gdańsk in the vicinity of the Port of Gdansk and concerns a water area owned by the State Treasury. As part of the project, it is planned to expand the breakwaters system responsible for covering the eastern side of the Northern Port.
