KIEV, UKRAINE — The newly built elevator complex for shipment of grain and oilseeds as part of NIBULON’s transshipment terminal in Mykolaiv, has received more than 100,000 tonnes of agricultural commodities since its inauguration May.  

The complex of 43,000 tonnes increased its total capacity of the silos located in the territory of the company’s terminal to 173,000 tonnes and to store 10 different crops separately and simultaneously.

The two ship loading machines from British company TELESTACK Ltd. installed on the reconstructed berth, which was put into operation along with the complex, shipment on water transport is from 10,000 tonnes to 12,000 tonnes per day. The agricultural commodity receipt from water transport is the same.

Nibulon said the new complex is aimed at mainly increasing the volume of agricultural commodity receipt and ensuring the uninterrupted transportation of cargoes from Voznesens’k branch and Novoodes’ka branch along the Southern Buh River, as well as forming batches of non-self-propelled vessels for loading vessels in the outer roads.

This year, Nibulon’s shipping company has transported about 350,000 tonnes of cargo along the Southern Buh River.

“Due to this, 14,700 trucks have been removed from the highways of Mykolaiv region,” the company said. “In addition, this year, Nibulon has shown the best result of cargo transportation along the main waterway of the region; it has transported 9,620 tonnes per one cargo trip.”
