Turkmenistan modernizes berth on Caspian Sea
Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, Sept. 18
By Huseyn Hasanov – Trend:
The Bektas seaport in the Caspian city of Garabogaz has been modernized, a source close to the Turkmen fleet said.
The design capacity of the berth is 3,500 tons of cargo per day. The berth, equipped with new technologies, is capable of receiving and servicing two vessels at the same time. The equipment by the German companies FAM and Liebherr was installed here for cargo loading.
It is expected that the products manufactured by the mineral fertilizer plant, which has been put into operation by the Japanese-Turkish consortium of Mitsubishi Corporation and Gap Insaat, will be exported from Bektas.
The plant will produce 1.155 million tons of urea per year. The urea produced at the plant is sent directly to the berth and from there it is loaded onto ships, which saves time, costs, ensures safety and security of the products.
