NUTEP Upgrades Railway Facilities
News: NUTEP, a container terminal operator in the Black Sea Port of Novorossiysk in Russia, has successfully improvised its railway facilities, reports the Journal of Commerce Online. This marks the completion of the latest phase of its development programme. The operator has managed to remove the original rail lines as well as constructed a new yard at the rear of the terminal. NUTEP has also raised block train capacity to 30 trains on a monthly basis. The elimination of the old railway lines has also increased terminal storage, thereby rising the intake capacity up to more than 11,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs). Additionally, the operator intends to make investment for building an extra container berth. This container berth would be able to handle ships with up to 6,000TEUs capacity, increasing the total capacity at NUTEP to 600,000TEUs by early 2016.
