The terminal as a symbol of investor’s faith in economic prosperity of Ukraine

On October 22, the participants of the “International Black Sea Transport Forum 2014", which takes place in Odessa, visited the building container terminal "Quarantine mole" in the port of Odessa. More than 40 people asked for an excursion after the speeches of representatives of the operator of the terminal SC “HPC-Ukraina” at the 11th international shipping, shipbuilding, ports development exhibition in the framework of the forum. Among them there were representatives of established foreign and domestic organizations: the Antitrust Committee of United States Department of Justice, Black Sea International Shipowners Association (BINSA), Container Lines Association of Ukraine, Ukrsudprom, Ukrenergotrans, German company  Bahnagentur Shoneberg (passenger carriage), Ukrainian LLC «Hermes-Trading»(storage and working of agrarian production), etc. 


The executive director of the company SC "HPC-Ukraina" Rashid Bouda and the communication and public relations director Svetlana Yarovaya accepted the guests at the terminal. It should be reminded that: SC "HPC-Ukraine" is a subsidiary company of the German logistics group HHLA, and from 2001 operates the container terminal at the Quarantine mole of Odessa sea port, on a parity basis with the port authority invests the construction of a new terminal with the same name "Quarantine mole".


The improvised excursion for participants of the transport forum, R. Bouda began with the history of the construction of the terminal.


When our company signed a joint investment agreement with the port on the construction of a new deep-water terminal, - began his speech R. Bouda, - many of our business partners took this news with a pinch of salt. It was 2009, the year when the collapse of the container market in Ukraine happened, when volumes fell by 60 %. We decided to build the terminal at that time, as many foreign companies have decided to close their business in this country. But we consciously decided to take this step, knowing that the low level of containerization of cargoes in Ukraine, system-based problems in the economy - all these are temporary phenomena. Sooner or later the advantageous transit location of the city at the European map of transport corridors will be in full demand. And by this time, a new modern infrastructure of handling should be prepared... 


We believe in sustainable future of Ukraine as an economically developed European State, and our faith wasn’t shaken even by the events of the current year. The SC "HPC-Ukraine" continues to cooperate with the port of Odessa; we operate the old terminal at the Quarantine mole and the new, deep-water one, right now only in the test mode, «R. Bouda ended.


During the seminar on the terminal, the participants saw with their own eyes the regained territory from the sea (19 ha of artificially created territory), visited the new berths K-1 and K-2, got acquainted with the technical characteristics of three new container cranes LIEBHERR, purchased by the investor. The acquaintance with the object, which is the business card of the development strategy of Odessa sea port, became for the visitors a visual confirmation of the possibility, necessity, and benefits of cooperation with Ukraine as a major player in the Black Sea market of the port transshipment. 


 Note: Terminal “Quarantine mole", with a capacity of 700 thousand TEUs of annual handling is the largest infrastructural project in the maritime transport industry of Ukraine. First terminal includes two berths with a total length of 650 meters and 112.4 thousand square meters of warehouse space, a new breakwater with a length of more than 300 meters. The total volume of investment is more than 2 billion UAH. The construction started in April 2010. In September, current year, two container vessels were worked in test-mode regime at the terminal.

Environmental-related activity in the ports needs European approaches - the participants of the round table in Odessa discussed the problems of ecological safety at the enterprises of the Maritime industry

The Authority of the ports of Odessa, Yuzhniy and Ilyichevsk were the first to join the project "green" sea ports of Europe. In turn there are smaller authorities of sea ports. This piece of news was made during the round table "Modern tendencies in the creation of green ports in the basins of the Mediterranean, Black and Azov seas". The roundtable discussion was held on October 22 in Odessa, in the framework of the “International Black Sea Transport Forum 2014", chaired by the Deputy Director of the state enterprise "UkrNIIMF, by the Candidate of Technical Sciences the corresponding member of Ukrainian Academy of Science Alexander Yatsenko. The round table was attended by representatives of relevant state and public organizations, environmental scientists from research institutes and universities of Odessa, specialists of a number of domestic seaports and private companies.


The head of The Environmental Safety Department of Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority Serhiy Perfiliev started the discussion, where he raised the problem of adaptation of national legislation in the sphere of environmental protection of marine ports to modern European standards.


According to the speaker, from the first day of the existence of the USPA before specialists-ecologists a task to build a system of ecological security in ports on the methodological principles that are consistent with the legislation of the European Union was set. Therefore, when Ukraine signed the Association Agreement with the EU, and there appeared a need in the shortest possible time to adapt domestic legislation to the European norms, environmental department of the Authority of ports approached this task sufficiently prepared.


- Lets take the EU Directive 2000/59 - s. Perfiliev singled out a concrete example. - This document defines the need in acceptance and safe handling of pollution, generated on ships that call at port harbors. We cannot say right now that we fully comply with European standards. But the necessary work (with one’s own effort or under contract), is carried out in the ports , we have the necessary environmental fleet, the cleaning stations of oily waters, Oil garbage disposal vessel, floating means of collection, auxiliary facilities, incineration facilities for disposal of quarantine wastes from ships. Thus a significant part of this problem is being solved ...


At the present time, the speaker mentioned further, USPA together with relevant scientific institutions develops the Concept of ecological security of the Ukrainian ports, which aims to systematize, to set priorities and to identify sources of funding for specific activities. Environmental Concept will become an important addition to the approved by the Cabinet of Ministers Strategy of the development of Ukraine sea ports till 2038 year.


Together with, analyzing the experience of the leading ports in Europe, Sergey Perfiliev expressed the view that on the path to effective European practices, the enterprises of the industry should overcome many problems connected with the archaism of the national environmental legislation, the methodology of which had been formed in the era of socialism, in the 70-ies of the last century.


- In European countries, port authorities decide themselves the questions on the deployment of new complexes and new technologies, and on attracting cargo traffic, - emphasized Sergey Perfiliev, and they are responsible to the state for the environmental consequences of those decisions.


We, up to now have this many organizations issuing regulations to enterprises, but still they are not responsible for the result. The state bears serious costs for maintaining these services and for the implementation of the regulations, and attraction of the specialists for the inspections. And in the end, a long and costly procedure for obtaining all permissions does not improve the environmental situation: thousands of illegal dumps throughout the country, the quality of the water and of the Black sea coast, leaves much to be desired, balneological potential of the Kuyalnik which is in the poor condition, and so forth.


If we are not in words but in deeds want to go on European principles and to have such quality of the natural environment, as in Genoa, Barcelona, Antwerp, we must liberate the environmental activities from bureaucratic pressure.


Instead of examination from outside the internal audit system of ecological safety should work. In such a formulation there will be a completely different scale of values and priorities. A company where every employee is a part of this self-improvement system, discovers the actual risks and eliminates the existing discrepancies, or is able to solve serious environmental problems on one’s own «concluded the speaker.


Following the results of the discussion, the participants of the round table "Modern tendencies in the creation of green ports in the basins of the Mediterranean, Black and Azov seas" have decided to prepare proposals to higher authorities in improving the industry-based regulatory structure and national legislation in the sphere of environmental protection.

«Theatrical» liner AMADEA dropped the curtain of the cruise season 2014 in Odessa sea port

On October 23, the cruise season 2014 ended with calling of the vessel AMADEA at Odessa sea port.  The vessel, with 415 passengers on board came from Constanta at 8:00 am. The leaving of the vessel is scheduled on 23:00 pm.


The liner, with musical name AMADEA was built in 1991, under order of Japan company and initially had the name “ASUKA”. The zest of the vessel is the presence of the classic theatrical hall on the board. At the time of the building of the vessel it was the first shipboard theatre with personal loges. At the present time the m/v AMADEA is a flagship liner of the German freighter PHOENIX REISEN.


As to the head of the External Relations and Tourist Services Department, Elvira Leschinskaya, the ending cruise season cannot be regarded as a lucky one: there were only 28 ship calls, instead of 159.


- We lost 67 ship calls of the foreign cruise companies, - remarks E. Leschinskaya. -Because of the events in Crimea, Donbas and in our city (on the 2nd of May) our constant clients, as SC Cruises, Azamara Cruises, Silver Sea Cruises, Aida Cruises, and Costa Cruises cancelled ship calls. Besides, the scheduled Black Sea circular routes on the vessels “Adriana” and “Izabella-1” weren’t launched. Thus, as to the data on number of visits of foreign cruise liners, Odessa sea port showed the number of the year 2000.


As the Head of the department narrated furthermore, Odessa Sea Port Authority holds events constantly in order to restore the image of Odessa as a safe city for sea travelers. The representatives of the port participate in international exhibitions and conferences, publish the passenger’s impressions about Odessa, and keep a direct contact with top-managers of the leading cruise corporations of the world. The port also leads activity in frames of Association of Mediterranean cruise ports MedCruise, where E. Leschinskaya is in the Board of Directors.


However, particular characteristics of the cruise business suppose higher safety concern of the passengers and cruise ship planning for the next 1-2 years in advance. That’s why a fast “recovery” of the cruise ship calls in Odessa cannot be foreseen. Nevertheless, 81 cruise ship call is scheduled for the next year.
