Exit meetings of the management of the Nikolaev Chamber of Commerce and Industry with heads of the enterprises of the city - members of chamber proceed. On January 29 the delegation торгово - industrial chamber examined GP "Nikolaev Port Elevator" work SAC "Bread of Ukraine".
The Nikolaev port elevator constructed in 1950, has the power of 69 thousand tons of single storage, and the mooring of the Nikolaev sea trade port is calculated on shipment by sea transport of 1 million t of grain in in 7-years oh. The big crop of last year and record volumes of export of grain in 2008/2009 marketing year allowed Nikolaev port to send 743 thousand tons of grain (bigger volume was reached only in 2002 - 760 thousand tons) in 2008.
- Today near us a number of new powerful grain terminals works. To compete with colleagues from Ilyichevsk or Odessa to us it is heavy from - that, thanks to work with vessels bigger a precipitation, they can offer lower tariffs for the services, - I noted during conversation Vladimir Klimenko, the deputy director of DP "Nikolaev Port Elevator".
Thanks to that the Nikolaev port elevator during construction was constructed by the last word of equipment of that time, its equipment and technology allows to compete successfully also today. So, on an elevator it is possible to make at the same time about 100 technological operations with grain. Capacities of an elevator allow to load on vessels to 14 thousand tons. per day, and at the same time to accept to 48 railway cars of grain. And here opportunities for grain acceptance from motor transport are strongly limited. Available practices on construction of the autoterminal are braked by lack of the free earth.
The Nikolaev Chamber of Commerce and Industry has long traditions of successful cooperation with a port elevator, and today renders a number of services to grain traders working at its base and forwarding agents: examination of radioactivity of freights, definition vessel precipitation, quality control of agricultural production, etc. Participants of a meeting gave appreciation to level of cooperation and confirmed intention to develop it in the future.
