Archer Daniels Midland Co. (ADM) has celebrated the official opening of its recently completed Port ADM Silistra silo, located on the Danube River in Silistra, Bulgaria.
The state-of-the-art 20 000 t capacity facility will be used to store, condition and transport bulk commodities. It has been built at a prime location on the Danube River, close to the village Aydemir, to accommodate the strong agricultural production of the region.
Port ADM Silistra will add incremental volumes to Black Sea exports, contributing to economic growth by giving local farmers access to transportation networks that connect Eastern Europe to lucrative markets worldwide. Additionally, the development of the silo has created new jobs in the local area, meaning a greater capacity to support trading and logistic operations in Bulgaria and Romania.
“At ADM, we offer flexible and efficient transportation to customers globally,” stated Ivaylo Georgiev, Chief Commercial Manager, ADM Bulgaria Trading. “With expansions, such as Port ADM Silistra, ADM will be well-positioned to meet rising customer demand across the region and simultaneously help local farmers to grow their businesses and broaden their horizons.”
The project was completed with the support of Silistra’s municipality and the Invest Bulgaria agency.
