The new pier of „Bega“ was transferred for operation

On the 19th of February, 2013 the serviceability act of the object „Reconstruction of quays No. 66 and No. 67 with extension of quays No. 66a and 67 a. The II construction stage – extension of quays No. 66a and 67a with local engineering networks“ was signed. The company „Josef Möbius Bau-Aktiengesellschalf constructed this object for 51 999 991,38 Lt including all expenses and taxes.

Previously this place in the Port was used not at its full capacity – the written – off vessels used to be cut there and scrap metal was stored. Quays No. 66 and 67a form the pier destined for cargo handling works. The length of the pier reaches 236.80 metres, the width is 30 meters, the depth at the pier is 13 metres (the planned in future depth should reach up to 14.5 metres).

As soon as the quays have been reconstructed and extended, additional possibilities to handle bulk, general and liquid cargoes occurred. The operator of this pier the stevedoring company „Bega“ is going to exploit the a-new constructed universal export and import terminal, designated to all types of  bulk agriculture products, like grain, extruded cakes of diverse plants, soy meal, granules, raw sugar and etc. Technologically the terminal is adapted both to export and import, i.e. it is possible to perform cargo handling operations simultaneously in two directions and the capacity and technical possibilities allow to perform the functions of cargo transhipment centre (HUB), i.e. to accommodate „Post “Panamax“ type ships with large amounts bulk cargo and to tranship this cargo with smaller ships among the Baltic Sea ports.
