Russia to construct new grain terminals in the Far East
Primorsky Krai presented three preliminary project for construction of new grain terminals to the investors: in the settlements Slavyanka and Zarubino (both in Khasansky district) and in Commercial Port of Vladivostok, reported Interfax.
According to Li Yan Gu, Consul General of the Republic of Korea in Vladivostok, there are several Korean agricultural enterprises operating in Primorsky Krai, which are facing difficulties in selling their agricultural commodities, due to underdeveloped transport and logistics infrastructure.
The representative of the Department of agriculture and food of the Krai noted that annually the region produces 125 thsd tonnes of soybeans, 120 thsd tonnes of maize, 80 thsd tonnes of rice, and over 30 thsd tonnes of feed wheat. And agricultural producers are ready to increase the production volumes in several times in terms of availability of the selling market, said the official.
Thus, to date the shipment capacity of grains in JSC Commercial Port of Vladivostok varies at the level of 700 thsd tonnes per year, which can be raised if necessary.
The other project involves construction of the terminal with grain capacity at the level of 10 mln tonnes in the Trinity Bay (Zarubino). The investor already purchased 100 ha of land areas for the purpose. The terminal will deal with shipment of transit commodities from the northeastern provinces of China to the southern ones.
