DORACO with a new contract in the Port of Gdynia!

We are pleased to inform that yesterday in the Port of Gdynia, the DORACO Management Board signed an agreement for implementation of a subsequent investment for this Investor, entitled “Reconstruction of the Northern Pilot Groyne (Ostroga Pilotowa) in the Port of Gdynia”.

Reconstruction of the Northern Groyne aims at making it possible for large container vessels with length of up to 400 m to enter the Port of Gdynia. The work will consist in widening the entry between the existing groynes to 140 m (the current width comes to 100 m), by demolishing approx. 43 RM of the Northern Groyne and general reconstruction of the remaining section to enable performance of dredging works in the next stage to a depth of -16.0 m.

The scope of DORACO’s work, planned for 46 weeks, includes:

  • demolition of the construction part of the Northern Groyne along the length of 42.7 m (approx. 600 m2) from the side of the Pilot Entry, its shortening to a length of approx. 57.1 m;
  • reconstruction of the remaining part of the Northern Groyne along the length of 57.1 m to adapt the structure to a technical depth of -16.0 m from the side of the Pilot Entry;
  • building a waving arrester on the eastern side of the Northern Groyne;
  • building a shore housing 25 m long at the bottom of the Northern Groyne from the side of the Outer Port;
  • electrical and sanitary work.

More about the investment


President of DORACO as a participant of the debate on economic risks in 2020

on economic risks in 2020. The President of DORACO Karol Zduńczyk spoke of hazards and challenges from the perspective of a general contractor.

The president mentioned, inter alia, the problem of a shortage of staff and increasing labour costs. He indicated the constant growth in the number of performed investments, leading to large demand for building materials, which has a periodic influence on their unavailability and increased prices. He paid attention to the reduction of new guarantee limits, which is reflected in low profitability of implemented contracts. Therefore, general contractors are reducing innovative activities, e.g. use of modern technologies or materials. The concern related to the coronavirus epidemic in China was added to the already existing hazards. It may impinge on a decline of production and in consequence on an increase in prices, e.g. for stainless steel or black sheet metal.

Conclusions from the meeting as well as the report – ‘Ranking of economic risks 2020. A decade of fear comes to an end. What decade is beginning?’ by SpotData and KUKE – are available in a full account of the event at Puls Biznesu.
