Rolls-Royce Marine Gdynia Poland

Rolls-Royce Marine, the global power systems company, has signed a long term lease with the Port of Gdynia, Poland, where a new service facility will be built. The new Marine Service Centre will provide state-of-the-art repair and overhaul expertise to customers throughout the Baltic region. The site benefits from having direct access to the Baltic Sea and being located within one of Europe ́s busiest commercial ports.

The design of the building is in line with the latest Rolls-Royce company standards. The new building will provide ca. 1950 m2 gross storey area with a potential growth option in the future. With a workshop and store area of more than 1,000 square metres, the new Gdynia facility will be equipped to handle a wide variety of marine components.

While the façade with its metal panels and joint grid is giving the building a precise and precious appearance, the interior design remains functional in relation to its industrial dedication. From the outside you can clearly identify the segmentation into the higher shop area with its 30 t crane bridge and the lower part of the building which con- tains the lobby, social rooms and technical services on the ground floor and the office area with its open panorama window on the first floor.
