The firm has signed a Memorandum of Cooperation and is set to conclude a long-term contract with the St Petersburg-based transport and logistics group Infotech Baltika (IB) for the construction of a new fertiliser terminal near the Russian Barents harbour of Murmansk.


IB already operates the Nord logistics terminal in Murmansk, and it now plans to build a dedicated facility for handling 2.5 Mtpa of high-quality mineral fertilisers and feed phosphates by Q2 2023.


The new facility would be located at the mouth of the Lavna River on the ice-free west coast of the Kola Bay, just opposite the existing Murmansk harbour. The site is the planned location of a new deepwater seaport featuring bulk and general cargo terminals capable of accommodating Panamax-class vessels. The Lavna port development will include new railway approaches and other relevant infrastructure.


Elsewhere, PhosAgro has contracted Ultramar, the largest carrier of containerised fertilisers in Russia, to handle its products through a new logistics hub to be built by Ultramar at Vistino, near the existing Russian Baltic harbour of Ust-Luga. The new facility is expected to start operations in H2 2021.
