Pomeranian zone expanded


The government on 27 December approved a decision to expand the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone (PSSE). A total of 57.39 hectares of new land have been incorporated into the zone, including the former Gdynia shipyard as well as sites in Malbork, Swiecie, Rypin, and Wloclawek.

According to the Government Information Centre (CIR), the expansion will result in the creation of 1,226 new jobs within the PSSE and 245 in its surroundings over the next few years, thanks to new investment estimated at PLN 757m (approx. €185m).

In Wloclawek, for example, Rhodia, a leading global manufacturer of specialty chemicals, will invest PLN 309m (€75.5m) until end-2015 to build a large factory of an innovative silica-based additive for vehicle tyres. The project is expected to bring at least 50 new jobs.

In Gdynia, meanwhile, the former shipyard is to be converted into the Baltic New Technologies Harbour, a technology and business park designed to attract R&D projects from the marine and energy sectors.
