The Nika Tera terminal (Mykolaiv), which is part of the Group DF group of companies, broke its own transshipment record in 2018, when it handled 5.84 million tons of cargo. This was 1.67 million tons or 39.6% more than the volume of cargo it handled in 2017, the CFTS portal reports, citing data from Nika Tera.

The terminal handled 335 vessels in 2018, compared with 229 in 2017.

The terminal handled 4 million tons or grain cargoes, leguminous plants, and oilseeds, as well as their byproducts, which accounted for 68% of the terminal’s total transshipment volume. Compared with 2017, transshipment of these cargoes increased by 53%.

The volume of transshipment of dry bulk cargo was 1.86 million tons, an 18% increase compared with 2017. In particular, most of the dry bulk cargo handled by the terminal was refractory clay, the transshipment of which increased by 10% from 1.24 to 1.36 million tons compared with 2017.

The storage capacity for grain cargoes at the terminal was increased in 2018. In addition, the warehouse complexes at the terminal were significantly expanded and construction work on a new berth for dry bulk cargoes was performed.

The Nika Tera terminal paid UAH 274.6 million in taxes, fees, and other payments in 2018.

As the CFTS portal reported earlier, the Mykolaiv seaport increased cargo handling by 24% to 29.2 million tons in 2018, compared with 2017. This increase was achieved because the Mykolaiv port began including data from the Okean shipyard and the Nika Tera terminal in its total cargo handling volume from March 1, 2018.
