In April we unloaded the first train with light oil products, in August we started up the berth designed for receiving the tankers with deadweight of up to 300 000 t. In fact, 3 tart-up complexes* were commissioned in 2013 which enables us to receive 4 rolling stocks with black oil products (72 RTC each) and 2 rolling stock with light oil products (72 RTC each) and effect loading at 3 berths simultaneously.
We continue active construction of 4th phase facilities which start-up shall provide for the Terminal capacity increase up to 30 mln tons per annum. Having achieved this, we will be able to become the biggest Terminal in Europe reloading oil products from railroad transport onto sea tankers. Already late 2014 – early 2015 we plan to receive the first rolling stock on the 4th rack designed for unloading high-viscosity oil products.”
