Trans Cargo Terminal SRL completed its grain export terminal expansion project in Danube, Moldova. The expanded facility has a total grain storage capacity of 70,000 tons and increased the transshipment capacity from 300,000 tons to 800,000 tons per annum.
Trans Cargo Terminal SRL, a Moldavian subsidiary of Trans-Oil Group, on November 10, announced the completion of its grain export terminal expansion project at Giurgiulesti International Free Port, which is located on the Danube river. With the expansion, Trans Cargo Terminal now is able to load more than 1,000 tonnes of grain per hour onto maritime vessels of up to 8,000 tonnes, as well as river barges, giving it the fastest loading rate of any grain terminal in the region.
Vaja Jhashi, President of TOG stated: "The expansion project consisted of the construction of an additional berth on the Danube, the erection of a silo with a storage capacity of 12,000 tons, a brand new deep water jetty as well as the installation of high-capacity loading equipment. In total about 6 million dollars were invested for the realization of this project. The expanded facility has a total grain storage capacity of 70,000 tons and increased the transshipment capacity from 300,000 tons to 800,000 tons per annum, which is equivalent to about 75% of the Republic of Moldova’s annual grain exports."
