Poland subsidiary of International Container Terminal Services (ICTSI), Baltic Container Terminal (BCT), recently handled its first vessel carrying windfarm components.

Following the increasing need for renewable energy, Polish ports have seen increased movement of windfarm components. Since the renewable energy industry is continuously growing and with the amount of windfarms in Poland increasing, BCT's startegic location has become more vital to the market.

BCT’s two Liebherr mobile harbour cranes (MHC) have a lifting capacity of 100 tonnes each, allowing the terminal to handle oversized cargo and perform transhipment of windfarm components.

There are now 619 wind power installations in operation in Poland with a total capacity of 2188.941 MW, according to the Energy Regulatory Office.

With the government’s plans to have wind power raised to 6650 MW until 2020, the energy sector will continue to grow, making it vital that Poland’s terminals are able to keep up with growing demands.
