Extension of the bulk cargo terminal, including launching of 4 new covered warehouse complexes and purchase of a piling conveyor, is the biggest investment the terminal made in the last two years.
„There were total of 5,6 mln. EUR invested in the development of the terminal, of which 4,2mln. EUR is loaned by DNB“, - said a board member of AS SilSteve, Mr. Jaanus Paas.
Putting the new shiploader into service made it possible for the terminal to perform almost loss-free loading operations simultaneously on different quays.
„Moreover, now we are able to load much bigger vessels“, added Mr.Paas. After putting of four new warehouse complexes into operation the total number of bulk cargo warehouses has reached 10 and the total bulk cargo covered warehouses floorage - 40 000m2.
