This year the construction of a grain terminal will be completed on the site of the former Bashkir Nuclear Power Plant. The equipment is supplied by a Turkish company. On August 20, the first two tankers with a carrying capacity of 5 thousand tons each will depart from the port of Agidel to the Turkish port of Marisel, where the vessels will arrive in 14 days. From there, the Bashkir grain will be delivered to Iran. Total, 10 thousand tons of grain will be shipped. The “Stapel” LLC CEO Mikhail Kulakov told the head of Bashkortostan Radiy Khabirov that the premises for storing grain were ready, it remained to install equipment through which grain would be loaded into tankers. Radiy Khabirov invited the head of the company at one of the nearest Investment Hour sessions.
According to Mikhail Kulakov, sending grain by water transport is very beneficial from an economic point of view, and if the railway line is repaired here, the development prospects of this facility will increase significantly.
Stapel LLC also initiates a priority investment project “Construction of ship-repairing and building yard,” the first line of which should be a workshop for the processing of oil elutions and sludge. The planned volume of investments in the first stage of the ship-repairing and building yard construction is 721 million rubles.
“This area is new for the republic, shipbuilding as such has not yet been in Bashkortostan. In the future, Agidel is one of the most promising cities in terms of investment. There are huge vacant areas and land plots. The republic will invest in the development and repair of infrastructure and already existing engineering networks with the support of the federal center”, said Radiy Khabirov.
