A terminal to handle fertilizers is to be built in Primorsk Kray in the Russian Far East as part of the Nakhodka mineral fertilizers plant project, one of the major investment projects currently under development in the region.
The plant will produce methanol using a state of the art three-stage reforming technology, which drastically reduces the carbon print. Methanol will be then piped from the plant to the terminal to be loaded onto ships.
The 1.8 mn tons per annum terminal will have a water basin of 38.3 thousand square meters and will be capable to handle up to 105 vessel of different sizes a year, ranging from the largest ships of 195 LOA and 53,000 dwt to smaller vessels of 90-110 m LOA and 4,000-5,000 dwt. The loading performance will make 1.2 thousand tons of methanol per hour.
