Expansion in Ukraine

A major expansion at the Ukrainian port of Mykolaiv has seen bulk terminal operator Nika-Tera open its own rail terminal with nine rail tracks totalling 3 km, along with a new weighing station.

The project is part of Nika-Tera’s expansion programme initiated in 2011, when Tera joined Ostchem, a leading nitrogen fertiliser producer. The programme involves deepening the terminal’s draught, acquiring dedicated handling equipment, and building associated transport infrastructure.


Having put three new berths into operation last year, at a cost of US$10M, Nika-Tera increased its quay line to 1.7 km. The operator will now build three more berths, to reach a total of 2.5 km.

Nika-Tera has acquired new Sennebogen bucket unloaders (costing US$0.9M), Telestack belt conveyors (US$1M) and Caterpillar loaders (US$160,000). Two Konecranes portal cranes are in the pipeline. To attract grain cargoes, Nika-Tera has constructed an up-to-date grain terminal with its own cereal laboratory.
