The Nibulon company’s terminal in the village of Kozatske received the first million tons of grains and oilseeds this month, the CFTS reports, citing information from Nibulon.
The transshipment terminal was commissioned in 2012, and 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 soybeans, sorghum, and sunflower in four years.
The company noted that it is possible to perform trips almost all year round because the terminal is located below the Kakhovskyi lock. In addition, it is the company’s second closest transshipment terminal to the sea, which also has a positive effect on the volume of raw materials processed.
According to Nibulon, the transportation of 1 million tons of agricultural products by water has prevented almost 42,000 trucks from taking to the roads in the Kherson and Mykolaiv regions.
As CFTS reported, Nibulon estimates that full-fledged resumption of shipping on the Southern Bug River will make it possible to transport up to 1 million tons of grain cargoes on the river annually. This will allow up to 50,000 trucks to be taken off the roads in the Mykolaiv region per year.
In addition, the company has commissioned a new grain transshipment terminal in the village of Buhske (Mykolaiv region) near Voznesensk. Construction of the terminal took just 100 days. The terminal received the first trucks on July 3.
