Multipurpose Reloading Complex increased investment in development by 17%
9 August 2019
In the first half of 2019, Multipurpose Reloading Complex LLC (MRC) based in the Port of Ust-Luga increased investments in the development of port infrastructure by 17% on the same period last year to RUB 146.1 million.
The investment growth is due to ongoing upgrade of the operator’s cargo handling and environmental protection equipment. Since the beginning of the year, the MRC own fleet of handling equipment has been beefed up with a new VITYAZ jib crane (lifting capacity of 63 tonnes), a KALMAR DCE160-12 forklift truck (lifting capacity:16 tonnes) and a MANTSINEN 120R material handler with a 5 m3 bucket. In addition, MRC acquired a mobile dust suppression system for outfitting the material handling machine to be environmental standards compliant while handling dry bulk cargo.
Besides, to increase the terminal handling capacity the six-month development programme included spending on front-end engineering & design for integrated development of local railway infrastructure.
