"NIBULON Ltd." decision to build a transhipment terminal in Nikolaev was made due to a number of factors: availability of the Company`s own agricultural land, which gives the yield of up to 100 thousand tons of grains; obvious need for Ukraine to export grains; transit cargoes from Russia and Kazakhstan; outdated domestic port infrastructure.
"NIBULON Ltd.", is an entity registered in "Nikolaev" Special Economic Zone, and on its territory the Company constructs the modern high-technological transhipment terminal for grains and oilseeds with the designed annual turnover of up to 1,3 mln. tons of grains. The Terminal is the Company`s property. Loading vessels at the Terminal is performed alongside the berth with the total length of 352m, which allows simultaneous loading of two vessels, provided technical norms and safety requirements are observed.
Navigation of vessels to "NIBULON Ltd." terminal is normaly started from the pilot station of "Yuzhny" Port as per the route: "Ochakiv" Port roads,- entrance to the Bugsko-Dniprovsko-Limanskiy Channel (BDLC), - water area of Nikolaev (Mykolaiv) Sea Commercial Port,- the first bend of "Nikolaev" Port entrance channel,- "NIBULON Ltd." Terminal.
The BDLC depth makes 11,2 m, which allows sailing for vessels with the maximum draft of 10.3m. "Delta-Pilot" State Company, which services the BDLC, has planned dredge works to increase the depth for the vessels with the draft of up to 10,5m. Official allowable draft in the Nikolaev Sea Commercial Port water area is 10,3m.
