TERMINAL AT THE FINNISH PORT OF HAMINAKOTKA [28.01.2021]
Fertilog Group and Shchekinoazot have built a new terminal at the Finnish Port of HaminaKotka.
Fertilog Group and Shchekinoazot have built a new terminal for the transshipment of mineral fertilizers (including urea, the construction of a production unit for which Shchekinoazot started last year) at the Finnish Port of Kotka.
The terminal has already started servicing third-party cargo carriers. The new terminal allowed Fertilog Group to increase its total transshipment volume by 30%.
“The new terminal provides Fertilog Group’s partners with new opportunities. They can now use more storage capacity and reduce the turnover of freight cars through faster cargo unloading. The new terminal also allows to load ships at two berths at a time, which increases the out-loading capacity of the port,” says Larisa Lisitsina, a representative of Fertilog Group.
Fertilog Group is a cargo transshipment operator that specializes in mineral fertilizers and liquid chemical cargo transshipment at the port of HaminaKotka, Finland. Fertilog Group includes Fertilog OY, Stanoil and FTK. Fertilog Group provides such services as transportation of chemical fertilizers by railroad, forwarding, warehousing, wagon unloading, ship loading and cooperation with shipping companies. Fertilog Group has been operating in Finland for over 10 years, during which over 10 million tons of various cargo have been transshipped at the Port of HaminaKotka.
Shchekinoazot is a manufacturer of industrial chemicals in Russia.
The company has been operating in the Russian and international markets of chemical raw materials and products for over 60 years. It is one of the largest exporters to Western and Eastern Europe, CIS, Asia, Latin America and the USA. Exports account for 70% of the company’s sales.
In 2020, Shchekinoazot started the construction of an ammonia and urea production unit (with a planned production capacity of 525,000 and 700,000 tons per year, respectively). By 2024, the company plans to transship its cargo traffic through the new terminal in Kotka.
