Infrastructure investments made by NIBULON exceed USD 2,1 billion
The NIBULON company invested in the Ukrainian infrastructure more than USD 2,1 billion. This was reported by Deputy CEO of NIBULON Volodymyr Klymenko within the framework of the annual Ukrainian Port Forum.
“Now we are working with agricultural producers without intermediaries. We are contractors and we work with 4.5 thousand partners. Every year, 500 new agricultural producers join our partners pool,” said Volodymyr Klymenko.
According to him, the company constructs one terminal in 100 days, however, preparation for the construction process lasts 7-10 years.
“If we count the total cost, the river terminal including infrastructure and access roads for 75 thousand tons costs USD 20-23 million. All our terminals are designed to load 54 rail cars of block-trains,” said the Deputy CEO of NIBULON.
For the elevator to pay off in 7 years, it has to make 4 turn-overs annually, he noted.
“Ships which we are building pay off no less than in 15 years,” commented Volodymyr Klymenko.
The company focuses on the development of the river logistics and therefore has built a chain of river reloading complexes.
“We built line of self-propelled and non-self-propelled crane boats: two NIBULONIVETS vessels load 5 thousand tons per day on the road and St. Mykolai floating crane with the capacity of 10 thousand tons. And on September 20th we will commission "NIBULON Max" with the daily loading capacity on the road up to 20 thousand tons,” he specified.
Volodymyr Klymenko also added that starting from October 1st the NIBULON logistics will provide for reloading of 40 thousand tons per day on the road.
