The company “Bontrup” from the Netherlands is negotiating with the management of the Belgorod-Dnestrovsky port on cooperation and investments.
In particular, a foreign investor is considering the possibility of using the capacities of the Belgorod-Dnestrovskiy port for transshipment of goods and the construction of the company’s production facilities Belgorod-Dnestrovskiy.
Oksana Kiktenko, the head of the state enterprise Belgorod-Dnestrovskiy Sea Trade Port, informed the management of Bontrup about the port’s plans, noting that “one of the main conditions will be the mandatory preservation of the company’s profile.”
The company “Bontrup” was established over 50 years ago and specialises in business in raw materials, logistics and agriculture. In Ukraine, the company has an asset in the form of the “Dutch agricultural company” (“Bontrup Ukraine”), which processes land plots in the Glukhovsky and Shostkinsky districts of the Sumy region with a total area of 22 thousand hectares, and also breeds dairy cattle.
It is also known that “Bontrup” plans to implement an investment energy project in the Chernobyl exclusion zone as part of implementing the concept of a “green” energy transition in Ukraine. At the first stage, the company plans to invest 50 million euros in the project with the prospect of increasing the level of investments to 1.5 billion euros.
