Using Dutch port technology, Tehagro plans to invest nearly $200 million in building three terminals – for containers, grain and bulk cargo – at Yuzhny port, Vyacheslav Boyalskiy, director of the company said last week at the ports forum in Odesa. Starting next year, Tehagro will spend $6.2 million on extending rail, electricity, and water into a 82-hectare site it owns at Yuzhny. At build out, in 2022, the terminals should handle 2 million tons of container cargo, 2.5 million tons of bulk cargo and 4.5 million tons of grain. The berths will be able to handle ships with carrying capacities of 150-170 thousand tons, about double the tonnages of Panamax ships.
