There is a new Cargo terminal at the Evraz Nakhodka sea trade port that unites production-loading complexes #4 and 5 located at the Astafiev cape.
The new terminal works with coal, coke, cast iron and products of metallurgical plants of Evraz.
According to the port’s management, the alliance of complexes will allow to increase the efficiency of treatment of vessels with rolled products.
We could see the effect of the new terminal the first days of its functioning, the managing director of Evraz NTMP, V. Saraev, said. The loading volumes of rolled products onto vessels significantly rose. We expect a further efficiency growth.
Last year the complexes #1 and 3 were united into the Coal terminal. It allowed to increase the efficiency by 10%, set a record of unloading (148 wagons a shift) and daily loading onto vessels (66 thousand tons of cargo) for the entire history of the port.
Now there are 2 large terminals at the port, each comprises 8 piers and is about 2 km long.

Now only port cranes are used or coal transshipment at the Vysotsky port. A new coal terminal will comprise special vessel loading machines, dumping machines and other equipment. Similar complexes now transship coal in Ust-Luga and the Vostochny port.
The coal terminal is planned to be put into operation in 2020.
Andrey Bokarev got another asset of the trader.
Speculation that the assets of oil trader Gunvor, the share in which Gennadiy Timchenko sold Swedish partners a day before the introduction of the US sanctions against the businessman, will stay long under foreign control is confirmed. Following "Kolmar" Gunvor sold control of oil product terminal "Ust-Luga Oil" to the structure of businessman Andrey Bokarev. He began working with Gennadiy Timchenko even before the sanctions, becoming in 2012 the owner of the railway operator "Transoil". But the terminal was the largest deal in the history of this partnership - analysts estimate the share in it at 70 billion roubles.
