Overhaul of the Terminal
Rationale for NGP’s re-engineering
Even now during the peak harvest period the terminal is unable to meet all the demand due to limited storage capacity for accumulating shiploads. Thus, these potential volumes are diverted to other deep- or shallow-water terminals
During the wheat harvest season due to the lack storage capacity it is impossible to accumulate 50-60 thousand tons shiploads of corn and barley, export of which from Russia has been growing significantly in the recent years
The delay of a vessel or bad weather for a few days stop the intake of grain to the elevator, causing numerous complaints from customers and rail carriers.
