So, within 10 years, a complex of facilities for handling and storing general, bulk and liquid cargo will be built on the 85 km section of the Danube River. The depth will be increased from 4.5 m to 7 m. The terminal’s capacity is 200 thousand tons. The cost of the work is UAH 10 million (USD 374.7 thousand), the investor is Econovatika LLC.
Also, within 10 years, it is planned to place a complex for the processing of mineral fertilizers at the 8th berth and in the rear zone on the territory of the industrial and transshipment complex №1 of the State Enterprise “IZM CSP”.
