Valentin Zolotarev (1925-1985) – the Head of Illichevsk and Odesa (1980-85) ports, a holder of Orders of Lenin, “Red Banner of Labor", “October Revolution", military decorations, the Bulgarian Order of “Labor".

 

After returning from the front in 1945 Zolotarev entered the Marine Fleet University of Odesa and graduated it in 1951. During one year (1950-1951) he worked as a shift dispatcher of the port of Odesa. For five years (1952-1957) Zolotarev worked in the Far Eastern port of Vanino as a senior dispatcher. In 1957 he came back to the port of Odesa as the Director of the warehouse and then as a Senior Dispatcher of the 4th district of the port, which had been later reformed into an independent port of Illichevsk.

 

In the port of Odesa Zolotarev implemented the idea of a container terminal at the Quarantine Mole (berths #1-2). Its area (15 hectares), including the rear areas was created by man-made ground. It had to sacrifice the Austrian beach. As a building material was used construction waste and sand. In 1984 the first container ship "Knud Jespersen" which delivered 319 containers with Vietnamese import cargoes was handled at the terminal.

Under the management of Zolotarev the port of Odessa started one of the most important tasks of government - handling of imported cargoes, which were purchased under the so-called Food Program. To do this, 3 complexes were created: berth #14-19 - transshipment of general import and service of passenger vessels, berths #21-24 - refrigerated and perishable cargoes, berths #25-26 - import bulk crgoes.
