In 2020, financing of capital investment programs of the Nika-Tera sea port has been increased by 29% compared to 2019. More than UAH 60 million was invested in the modernization of the sea port in 2020.

“In 2020 and in 2021, we continue to build a new generation sea port. The investments made by the owner are primarily aimed at improving the quality and speed of customer service, as well as introducing the best international service practices,” commented Alim Agakishiev, CEO, Nika-Tera sea port.

The investments were aimed at increasing the sea port’s capacity and the speed of customer service. The 2020 major investment projects included:


Modernization of Cargo Area No.2, specializing in the handling of solid bulk cargo. As part of the project, a modern berthing and weighing facility was built and put into operation, consisting of two technological lines. The maximum capacity of each line is up to 1800 m3 per hour.


A project to increase the railway fleet and expand the throughput capacity of Nika-Tera sea port.

All locomotives on the sea port’s balance sheet are equipped with modern control systems that ensure safe working conditions for the engine drivers.
