PCC Intermodal to build new container depot in Kutno
PCC Intermodal, a Polish major rail freight operator, is planning to construct a new container depot for transhipping and storing empty containers. The facility will be located at the company’s terminal in Kutno, northward from Łódź. Currently, the company is looking for a contractor to implement the project.
PCC Intermodal has announced a tender for the construction of a new container depot in Kutno. In accordance with the presented design prepared by SWECO, the contractor is committed to building the site and the accompanying infrastructure, including the access road. The deadline for obtaining the use permit and the settlement of the task is 16 July 2022. The selection of the offer will be determined by the price criterion.
The new depot is another investment carried out by PCC Intermodal in Kutno. The company has received 19.1 million zloty (4.2 million euros) from the Infrastructure and Environment Operational Programme for the project ‘Expansion of the intermodal container terminal in Kutno and purchase of devices supporting its activities”. It includes the equipment of the terminal with two electric rail-mounted cranes, which will be adapted to work in an autonomous mode, as well as three brand new reach stackers with a lifting capacity of 45 tonnes.
In December 2018, the company signed an agreement with the Centre for EU Transport Projects for co-financing after winning a project competition. In addition to the investment in Kutno, PCC Intermodal carried out, among others, construction of a crane track in Brzeg Dolny and purchase of reach stackers for this terminal (provided by Cargotec), as well as the purchase of modernized shunting locomotives (the supplier was Tabor Dębica).
