NIBULON put its terminal into operation in Kherson region
The opening of the NIBULON new transshipment terminal for grain and oilseeds was held today in Hola Prystan, Kherson region.
The building of the Holoprystanska branch was funded by the European Investment Bank, although the investment project started thanks to the EBRD funds.
The grain storage capacity of the transshipment terminal is 77,000 tons, the daily capacity of the dryers is 4,000 tons, the daily capacity for shipment for water transport is 12,000 tons. The total capacity of the transshipment terminal is 300,000 tons per year.
"The construction of such complexes is a big step forward in respect of logistics because this opens up the best opportunities to export Ukrainian crops abroad. Agriculture and processed products are the basis of Ukrainian exports. It is also an opportunity for farmers from Kherson region to directly deliver their products. Plus the roads are relieved and kept in an operational condition. Now there is a big project for the development of the Dnieper as a transport artery and NIBULON is making a huge contribution to it," Maksym Nefedov, the first Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine, commented to Latifundist.com.
In addition, today NIBULON has signed a loan agreement for a total of $ 90 million with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
Let us remind that for the first time in 25 years of Ukraine's independence, the EIB provided funds directly to the Ukrainian company without any guarantees from the country or banks, but only under financial obligations of NIBULON.
