This year, thanks to government programs and cooperation with our permanent international financial partners, we are completing key infrastructure facilities, the new berth 1-z of the Odessa seaport is just one of them.Vladislav Krykliy, Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine
The new berth 1-z at the Androsovskiy pier will be 254 m long, 35 m wide, and 12 m deep near the border with a prospect of up to 13.5 m. The new berth will be able to receive Panamax type vessels with a deadweight of 60 thousand tons and above. The throughput capacity of berth 1-z will be 4 million tons per year.
More than $ 100 million was invested in the construction of the berth.
According to the Head of the Odessa seaport administration Ruslan Sakhautdinov, it is planned to complete the installation of utilities at the facility by the end of this year and proceed to obtaining documents for commissioning.
