Investments in development of Multipurpose Reloading Complex at the port of Ust-Luga grew by 56%
7 May 2019
In the first quarter of 2019, allocations of Multipurpose Reloading Complex LLC (MRC) operating at the port of Ust-Luga totaled RUB 76.9 million, up 56% as compared to the same period of the previous year.
The bulk of the amount was allocated for the purchase of equipment. The company acquired the KALMAR DCE160-12 forklift truck of 16 tonnes in capacity and the Mantsinen 120R handler with a 5-cbm bucket. The latter is equipped with an extra dust suppression system to mitigate the impact on the environment. With introduction of the equipment the company will ensure compliance with ecological standards while performing intensive handling of dry bulk cargo, particularly amid the growing flow of thermal coal.
Simultaneously with the technical modernization process the company continued pre-project works on comprehensive development of its railway infrastructure. This part of the investment programme is aimed at enhancement of the terminal’s handling capacity.
