Construction

The finished CKWS building was equipped with water, sewage, electrical and teletechnical installations. All necessary utilities were also connected up – power supply, gas connection, water connection, sanitary sewage system and storm water drainage. Lighting was installed around the building, and the area was tidied up and greenery planted. The building is already equipped with exhibition hoists, precision air-conditioning devices, a photovoltaic system, access control and fire alarm systems, as well as exhibition lighting. The contractor for the technological systems of the conservation workshop has begun work in the building.

Yachts and virtual cultural institution

In December 2015, Puck-based Complex Yachting completed conservation work on historic yachts. “Dal” , “Opty” and “Kumka IV” – which will be among the main exhibits of the new branch in Tczew – are already in the building. The bowsprit of the “Generał Zaruski” sailing ship and the bowsprit of the yacht “Janek Krasicki” were also transported to the Shipwreck Conservation Centre. As part of the CKWS construction project, work continues on the 3D inventory and technical documentation of the yacht collection. Interactive educational stands and multimedia kiosks are also being developed together with their contents for the needs of the Virtual Culture Institution.

Building

The author of the Shipwreck Conservation Centre project and the interior design is FORMA Architekci studio. The body of the building is modern, simple, follows modern architectural trends and creates a compatible whole with the neighbouring Vistula River Museum. The interior of the building is spacious, bright, and the open space is a great asset to the place.

Plans

– We hope to invite visitors to the Shipwreck Conservation Centre as early as this summer, says Szymon Kulas, the CKWS construction project manager. – The construction of a new branch of the National Maritime Museum in Gdańsk is an important investment and a serious undertaking and we are glad that we are very close to finishing it. The total cost of the project amounted to PLN 22,292,960. We are proud that the conservation of yachts has been completed and that we will present visitors with augmented reality applications for mobile devices. These applications will be used for educational activities conducted in the branch. We are sure that the inhabitants of Tczew will be pleased with the new investment.


The project “Shipwreck Conservation Centre with a Study Warehouse in Tczew” is carried out under the programme “Preservation and Revitalisation of Cultural Heritage”, and support has been granted from the Norwegian and EEA funds, coming from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, as well as national funds. The task is implemented in Polish-Norwegian partnership with the Norwegian Maritime Museum in Oslo and the Museum of Cultural History in Oslo.
