The Nibulon company has begun implementing an investment project involving construction of a river and sea terminal for transshipment of grain and oilseeds in the Kherson region, the CFTS reports, citing Nibulon.

The new terminal, which will be built in Hola Prystan, will become the company’s second facility in the region and the 25th facility built by Nibulon in Ukraine. The first pile foundation at the construction site was installed on 30 September this year. The construction project will involve 1,500 workers and specialists.

The facility will employ 150 people after its commissioning. According to a presentation by the company, in addition to grains and oilseeds, implementation of the investment project will also allow transshipment of vegetables and fruits in the Kherson region and their transportation up River Dnipro.

According to the company, commissioning of this terminal in combination with the operation of another terminal in the Beryslav district will allow 600,000-700,000 tons of grain transported by road in the Kherson region to be taken off the roads.

As reported, the Nibulon company’s terminal in the village of Kazatske received its one millionth ton of grains and oilseeds in September.

The transshipment terminal was commissioned in 2012. In four years, it has received and shipped about 478,100 tons of wheat, 244,100 tons of barley, 139,700 tons of corn, 91,200 tons of rapeseed, and about 57,000 tons of soybean, sorghum, and sunflower.
