Background

Berths 19-22 are intended for handling bulk cargoes including iron ore, coal, and coke. Operation capacity totals 5.4 million tonnes a year. Berths 16-18 and 23-26 handle bulk and general cargoes including coal.[1] The majority of the port's capacity is used for shipping iron ore coming from the Poltava Mining and Processing Plant - the largest Ukrainian exporter of iron ore pellets to Europe. In 2018, the port handled 3.1 million tonnes of iron ore and 748,000 tonnes of coal.[2]

The port is designed for handling river barges and a number of small berths (up to 200 meters in length). Russian coal producer SUEK AG exports about 600,000 tonnes of coal annually through the port to Bulgaria, Hungary, Macedonia, Romania, and Serbia.[3]
