NIBULON’s newly built branch, which was put into operation in June 2020, has received more than 100 000 t of agricultural commodities. More than 4000 trucks have not entered the southern port cities, overcoming hundreds of kilometres by Ukrainian highways, as all the grain received by the facility is shipped by water transport and delivered to the company’s sea terminal in Mykolaiv or directly to the outer roads. Since it commenced operations, the facility has already loaded 24 NIBULON’s non-self-propelled vessels, having transported 82 000 t of grain by Ukrainian waterways.
NIBULON’s Zelenodolska branch transhipment terminal is the first company’s facility in Dnipropetrovsk region, Ukraine. The agrarians from this region have been waiting for it for 12 years. All the advantages of co-operating with NIBULON are now available to them, namely the reduction of costs paid for grain transportation, more efficient use of their own trucks, time saving, fair market prices for agricultural commodities in the region, etc. Thus, the agricultural producers can save money to develop their own farm businesses, thereby developing the agrarian potential of Ukraine.
At present it is NIBULON’s most up-to-date river facility equipped with the best equipment from world’s leading manufacturers, such as Bühler GmbH (Germany), PRECIA S.A. (France), Cimbria Unigrain A/S (Denmark), UAB Liucija (Lithuania), TELESTACK Ltd (Great Britain), etc. As a result, the transhipment terminal can receive up to 400 trucks per day, dry 3600 t and ship 12 000 t of grain by water transport. The Zelenodolska branch storage capacity is 76 000 t of agricultural commodities simultaneously. The facility can annually receive 300 000 t of grain, thereby removing the equivalent of more than 12 500 trucks from interregional and intraregional highways.
At present the Zelenodolska branch transhipment terminal in Marianske village (Apostolove district, Dnipropetrovsk region) is efficiently receiving Ukrainian grain.
