Car terminal gets new railway facilities

13.02.2020

Additional 2.8 kilometers of railway tracks for the Car & RO-RO terminal.

Few days ago we finished the construction of the additional railway access for the Car and RO-RO terminal. The railway lines are routed to the second largest storing area for cars in the north-east part of the port. The investments consists of four 700 meters long lines with dedicated hydraulic loading/unloading ramps and adaptive lighting to ensure proper visibility on both decks of railcars during night operations. The new facility will shorten distances between storage areas and train loading points, while improving productivity and flexibility of rail operations.

This is the first major investment in 2020 to be completed at the Car & RO-RO terminal. There are another two investments in progress – the new berth for car-carriers, which should be completed soon, and the garage for 6,000 cars, expected to be completed by the end of the year.
