LLC Techagro plans to build three terminals in the sea port of Yuzhny (Odessa Region) for the total cost of $198M, as declared the company’s director Viacheslav Boialski in the course of Ukrainian Ports Forum 2018 in Odessa last Thursday.
According to Viacheslav Boialski, the idea concerns container, grain, and bulk/general cargo terminals. The company owns a land plot of 82 hectares at the port harbour entrance. Its waterfront amounts to 280 metres, the depth is to reach 17 m, so as to be able to handle vessels of 150 – 170 DWT. The company has already obtained the water resources land allocation.
First Techagro is going to extend there the electricity supply from Adjalyk power substation totaling at 18 km, water supplies and a railway line. “Under the interim estimate calculation – $198M. The first we are going to bring in is a rail line plus electricity and water. This would consume $6.2M, and we plan to do this work in 2019 in order to supply the yard with pipelines and networks”, told V. Boialski.
Techagro plan to started constructing in 202, first the grain terminal to be further on launched in operation in 2021. According to preliminary data, on the initial phase it would be capable of handling 4.5M t annually, including 0.4M t of flour and 0.2M t of vegoil.
Mr. Boialski noted that the terminal will accumulate grain cargoes for export shipment, from small barges of 1-2-3 thousand tons each that would bring grain from Ukraine’s rivers, to be loaded onto big ocean-going vessels.
The container terminal planned to be built by Techagro would boast its throughput capacity of 2M t and occupy the area of 22 hectares. Most modern logistic technologies are planned to be realized in it.
The bulk and general cargo terminal is assigned to tranship 2-2.5M t a year. This could be coal imported by Ukraine, or some export cargoes as ore pellets, ore, road metal, sand.
As on 31 May 2018, the company’s owners were LLC Grand Kurort Service (40 %), and Cyprus-based Serfilana Commercial LTD (60 %).
In summer 2014 a group of companies associated with the former Minister of Environment Protection Mykola Zlochevskyi – Investment Company Agroprom, Techagro, Resourceagro, Technoagro-Invest, and Agrostyle – concentrated in its ownership or lease 80 hectares of land at the Yuzhny Port harbourage. The land’s designated purpose is deployment and operation of maritime transport structures and facilities. The plots surround the territory of the so called ’38-th berth’ of Yuzhny Port. The complex consists of the 200 m quay, two level-luffing cranes and 1,000 m2 of open storage areas. In 1970-es the complex was built for sand handling but later on it was out of operation for a long time.
