This year, NMTP acquired land adjacent to the port from the local (bankrupt) railcar repair works for about US$29M.

According to NMTP’s director general, Sultan Batov, it is now planning to use the site for building terminals for oilseed (100,000t one-time storage capacity) and grain, which are part of NMTP’s development programme for 2016-2020. NMTP already operates the 5 Mtpa Novorossiysk Grain Terminal, which opened in May 2008. Last year, NMTP handled 4.4 Mt of grain, up 81.5% on 2005, so construction of a new terminal is a matter of urgency.

Earlier this year, NMTP consolidated a 98.26% stake in Novorossiysk Ship-Repair Yard (NSRZ), where the port operator was set to build a multipurpose bulk terminal.

In H1 2017, NMTP received 37 units of new, more efficient, machinery, including three Liebherr LPS 420 cranes, two Liebherr LHM 550 mobile harbour cranes and a Liebherr A 944 2 CHD loader.
