Poland has received PLN 4.4 billion in funding from the EU’s Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) for transportation projects. June 21, 2023, a meeting of the CEF Coordinating Committee was held to approve the results of the competition.
Poland repeated its success from the CEF Transport 2021 competition and once again ranked first in terms of the value of funds raised. Poland has also been successful in obtaining funds from the general pool, in which all EU countries compete.
I am extremely pleased that Poland is continuing the favorable trend of raising funds for Poland’s priority projects, including the currently key rail links in the north-south corridors, i.e. with the Czech Republic and Lithuania (Rail Baltica), as well as necessary investments in seaports, serving both to increase the global accessibility of Central Europe and the development of wind energy in the Baltic – said Polish Infrastructure Minister, Andrzej Adamczyk.
Among the projects that will receive funding from the CEF Transport 2022 competition are two projects from the offshore sector with a total EU funding of more than 165 million euros:
- Port of Gdansk Authority SA
Improving the infrastructure of the Port of Gdansk through the implementation of a low-carbon OPS system for the sustainable development of the TEN-T network; funding value €99.6 million, cohesive pool;
- Szczecin and Swinoujscie Sea Ports Authority
Building the capacity of the Swinoujscie seaport to meet the needs of offshore wind energy; funding value €63.6 million, cohesive pool.
A list of all funded projects is available on the website of the Ministry of Infrastructure
