The Governor of Primorye announced plans to build a new container terminal in Wrangel Bay

Initially, it was planned that the terminal would specialize in coal transshipment

The new terminal, which will appear next to the Nakhodka Mineral Fertilizers Plant (NZMU) in Wrangel Bay (Primorsky Krai), will specialize in transshipment of containers and export cargoes. This was stated by the governor of the region Oleg Kozhemyako following a meeting with the largest investors of Primorye under the leadership of the plenipotentiary representative of the President of Russia in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev.
The meeting reviewed the progress of projects in the field of shipbuilding, agriculture, tourism and logistics with a total investment of 290 billion rubles. Among them are the Sukhodol seaport and the port in Wrangel Bay, the press service of the regional government reports. “According to the governor of Primorye, the northern port, located next to the Nakhodka plant of mineral fertilizers, will become a modern port for container transportation and export of goods,” the press service reports.
“This is another area of work for our ports, other technologies, other equipment. This is of great importance to us… This is also the expansion of opportunities directly for container transshipment of the Sukhodol port. Not only as a coal, but also as a container,” the head of the region is quoted as saying. The governor added that the regional authorities will work out all possible options for supporting such projects with the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia.
Currently, more than 2 thousand investment projects are being implemented in the territory of the region with the use of state support measures, in which 718 billion rubles have been invested to date.
As the PortNews News Agency wrote, earlier Oleg Kozhemyako reported that six new ports are being built in the region at the same time, which will add 100 million tons to the existing cargo turnover.
Recall that in Wrangel Bay, NZMU is implementing a project to build a methanol production plant at the first stage (1.8 million tons) and carbamide at the second stage (3 million tons per year). The plant will include a marine terminal, where ships will be received and processed for loading products coming through pipelines. The water area of the terminal in the port of Nakhodka will amount to 38.3 thousand square meters, the planned cargo turnover is 1.8 million tons per year (up to 105 ship calls).
According to local media, Sergei Darkin, ex-governor of Primorye, president and owner of PJSC Pacific Investment Group (TIGER), plans to build a new terminal near Nakhodka. Initially, it was planned to build a coal port, but against the background of a logistical turn to the East, plans changed in favor of a container terminal.
