The Port of Illichivsk has renewed sugar handling


On May 29, 2012 the Sea Commercial Port of Illichivsk accommodated the bulker “Common Venture” (flying the flag of Greece) for raw-sugar discharging. The Port has not handled vessels with raw-sugar since 2010.
The bulker «Common Venture», entered the Port of Illichivsk for handling, was constructed in 2011. The length of the vessel is 190 meters, overall breadth is 32 meters and deadweight of 57 thousand tons. “Common Venture” is moored at the berth No. 14 of the SCPI. About 45,5 thousand tonnes of cane sugar will be unloaded from the vessel. Despite the fact that the port has not handled vessels with such cargo for a long time, the unloading technology for sugar handling is well-proven. Two gantry bunkers for cargo handling operations were installed on the Terminal No.3.  According to the approved technological scheme, unloading of sugar is provided by direct variant: hold – bunker – hopper-wagon. Four gantry cranes (three “Kondor” cranes and one “Albrecht”), working in grab mode, unload sugar from five holds of the vessel. Two crawler excavators (“Liebherr” and “Kato”) are used in the holds. Sugar is unloaded by grabs to bunkers, from which goes directly to hopper-wagons.
The Port of Illichivsk Authority has reached a preliminary agreement with the cargo owner regarding regular monthly calls of large-capacity bulk carriers with raw sugar. “For a long time the situation in the sugar market has remained unfavorable for the Sea Commercial Port of  Illichivsk. Nevertheless, we had continuous negotiations with cargo owners to bring back this type of cargo to the port, – said Alexander Grygorashenko, General Director of the Port, – Today we expect that our arrangements will assure long-term mutually beneficial cooperation with freight owners and increase sugar handling volumes in the port.”
