In 1920, on the basis of the Treaty of Versailles, Poland received a piece of the Baltic coast without a port. In May of that year, the then Director of the Naval Department of the Ministry of Military Affairs, Vice Admiral Kazimierz Porebsky, sent engineer Tadeusz Wend to Pomerania to find the most convenient place for the construction of a military port. Already in June 1920, Tadeusz Wenda provided him with a report on the results of the inspection, in which he wrote:
“... the most convenient place for the construction of a military port (and, if necessary, a commercial one) is Gdynia, and in fact, a lowland located between Gdynia and Oksyva at a distance of 16 km from the New Port in Gdansk. This area has the following advantages:
1. Hel Peninsula protects it even from such a wind that Gdansk is not free of.
Deep water is located close to the shore, namely - a line of 6 meters deep is located 400 meters from the sea, and
A line of 10 meters deep is located on distance 1300-1500 m from the coast.
The coast is low, rises to a height of 1-3 m above sea level.
There is an abundance of fresh water in the form of the Hilonia brook.
Nearby is the Gdynia railway station (2 km ).
There is good soil in the roadstead ... "
In the summer of 1920, T. Venda was appointed head of the port construction in Gdynia. According to his project, a trading, military and fishing port was built in Gdynia in 1920-1932.
Later, T. Wenda worked as head of the construction and technical department of the Marine Department and chairman of the Technical Society in Gdynia.

In 1937, at the age of 74, retired. He was awarded the Commander's Cross of the Order of the Renaissance of Poland. He died in 1948 in Comorow near Warsaw. He was buried in the Polish capital.
The name of Tadeusz Wenda is the first pier and street in the city built in the port of Gdynia.
