Spring has truly sprung bringing with it two prestigious contracts for WYG in Poland worth a combined total of €740,000. Under public tender procedures run by PKP PLK S.A., WYG has been appointed to prepare feasibility studies for a rail infrastructure improvement project at tri-city1 area seaports at Gdańsk and Gdynia.
The projects will see WYG providing recommendations for the modernisation and reconstruction of railway stations supporting the Polish seaports taking into account capacity and number of shipments.
The project team will be responsible for defining the optimal investment variant, the financial models and their influence on the contractor financial standings as well as being an advisory on a complex set of preconditions and recommendations of the best investment execution solutions. Analysis will also take into consideration development plans of the cities and seaports at Gdańsk and Gdynia and the needs of other project stakeholders who are using the railway infrastructure within the seaports.
Renata Mordak, Director of the Investment Consulting and Transport Solutions Department comments on these last project wins: ‘We are delighted to have signed contracts regarding development of railway transport system to the tri-city area seaports. We will begin with the preparation of several modernisation and railway infrastructure development scenarios and the final selection will be not only limited to the cost criterion. WYG will prioritise both of these projects as I see their complexity not as discouraging but a great challenge which we look forward to implementing.’
Preparing the feasibility studies for the Polish seaports is the next step of WYG’s expansion in the area of advisory for the railway sector in Poland.
Estimated deadline for both projects is May, 2015.
