Investment projects

The new bulk liquid cargoes complex «IPP» was put into commercial operation in 2002. The terminal facilities handled 2,000 tons cargoes per annum and provided diesel fuel export from Russia.

In 2007 was the second stage of reconstruction: the bunkering fuel transshipment сomplex was successfully put into operation in the «IPP». The project aimed to increase the total volume of cargo turnover through the terminal in amount of 600,000 tons of oil fuel and about 48,000 of diesel fuel tons per annum.

Under the implemented project there were constructed two tanks for oil fuel with the capacity of 5,000 metric tons each, one tank for diesel fuel with the capacity of 1,000 metric tons, a trestle for discharge of oil liquid products. There were also reconstructed births №26А, 26, 27.  

After construction finishing the terminal was equipped with a rapid heating and fuel oil discharge system. Since that time, bunkering operations were carried out by the direct scheme: «tank farm-vessel».

In October 2008 the OJSC «IPP» finished the reconstruction of the terminal for the transshipment of liquid bulk cargoes. New technical facilities could handle about 1 million tons of oil liquid cargoes per annum.

The next stage of modernization was the implementation of the project – «OJSC «IPP» Development (warehouse deport) ». The main objective of this project was the increscent of the current tank farm capacity and reconstruction of the fuel pipeline system in accordance with European ecological standards of safety.

There were built three new tanks with a total capacity of 36,000 tons. The total volume capacity of OJSC «IPP» tank farm increased from 51,000 thousand tons up to 78,900 tons. Owing to new technical facilities, the «IPP» terminal could handle both: diesel fuel and oil fuel.

In 2013 the terminal completed the construction of three universal tanks for diesel fuel with a capacity of 30,000 tons. During the construction of the tanks, the engineers used the latest technology of the “floating roofs” that could help to reduce detrimental atmospheric emissions.

In 2013 the OJSC «IPP» implemented the project of technical modernization of the railroad overpass for fuel oil discharge. That project involved the full equipment replacement with the aim to accelerate the process of draining wagons and improve energy efficiency of the terminal.

Another investment project was the construction of additional oil tank with a capacity of 5000 tons. Thus, the expansion of the tank farm reduced wagons’ demurrage (especially in winter time) and increased maximum tanker lot.

 In 2014 the OJSC «IPP» reconstructed its terminal tank farm. There were built two new tanks with the capacity of 6,000 metric tons each in replacement of two physically worn out tanks, which had been built within 1980-1990. Thus, the newly build tanks has increased the terminal total storage capacity, excluding any economic and ecological risks during operation.

In 2014 the trestle for oil fuel discharge and unloading of dark petroleum products was put into operation. This project aimed to reduce the time required to heat the oil fuel before unloading by means of the technical re-equipment of the railway loading rack’s oil fuel heating system.

The construction of the new tank for the oil fuel with the capacity of 5,000 metric tons expanded the terminal facilities by enabling to provide services for bunkering tankers with oil fuel, according to the customers’ wishes concerning the quality of petroleum products.

In 2016 the OJSC «IPP» will implement another investment project: the reconstruction of the technological pipeline system conveying mineral fertilizers (UAN-32). The current pipeline system will be totally dismantled and replaced by the new one. Thus, the new pipeline system will be fitted out with the latest modern equipment, required to ensure industrial and environmental safety during its exploitation

General information on berths

The OJSC “IPP” is a specialized terminal exporting liquid bulk cargoes: diesel fuel, oil fuel and mineral fertilizers (UAN-32).

Berths: No.26А, 26, 27;

The length of the berths No 26, 27 is about 250 m, 26А – about 100 m;

Maximal allowed draft No. 26А – 4,3 m, No. 26 – 12,7 m, No 27 – 11,9 m;

The pipeline system from the terminal to the berths provides for the simultaneous loading of two tankers with diesel fuel, or one tanker with diesel fuel and one tanker with mineral fertilizers/ fuel oil at the berth No. 26 and 27 and one tanker at the birth No 26А.

It is possible to handle tankers with the deadweight up to 56,000 tons. The loading time for the vessels of 30,000 tons is about 36 hours.

The loading speed of diesel fuel is 2,200 tons per hour; oil fuel is 350 tons per hour; mineral fertilizers up to 1000 tons per hour.

The tank farm facilities of the terminal can provide accumulation of two tanker lots of diesel fuel in amount of 30,000 and 35, 000 each, one tanker lot of mineral fertilizers in amount of 35,000-40,000 tons, one tanker lot of oil fuel up to 12,000 tons.
