Vaja Jhashi, the president of the TRANS OIL group of companies: "We settled $6 million of investments and opened a new grain terminal on the Danube River at the end of 2016 with the financial support of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. Thus, grain export opportunities were increased from 500.000 tons per year to  over 1.3 million tons per year. We continue to develop the infrastructure during this year, 2018th and invest additional 1 million euros in the construction of a new pneumatic grain supply line that will unite the Trans Cargo terminals on the Prut River with the Trans Cargo terminals on the Danube River."

 Currently, TRANS OIL capacities at the International Free Port of Giurgiulesti provide storage of 70.000 tons of grain, of which 50.000 are located on the Prut coast and 20.000 on the Danube.

 The loading of grain crops is provided by two terminals located on the Prut and the Danube. The loading capacities of the terminal on the Prut River allow to load 200-300 tons of grain per hour, and the terminal on the Danube River can accept 800 tons per hour.

 The new pneumatic grain feeding line will unite all the grain capacities of the TRANS OIL group in Giurgiulesti port. 

 Mihail Redkin, CEO of Trans Cargo Terminal:  "We will be able to ship to both the Prut and the Danube rivers simultaneously from any of our storage facilities, built both on the bank of the Prut and on the banks of the Danube, after launching the new pneumatic line. This will make the operation of our grain terminals quick and more flexible, it will also increase the overall loading capacities of our port by increasing the efficiency of its use. More than 485 thousand tons of grain, legumes and oilseeds were transported over the first half of this year (01.07.17 - 31.12.17)."

 The cost of the project for the construction of the new pneumatic line is 1 million euros; financing is carried out both at the expense of the own funds of the TRANS OIL group, and the resources  attracted from international financial institutions. The equipment is supplied by the company "Stalprom" (Dnepropetrovsk, the Ukraine), which is responsible for laying the pipeline; and the company "Technology of pneumatic equipment-export" (Taganrog, the Russian Federation), supplying modern pneumatic technologies used for international ports.

 The first part of the new pneumatic line will be launched in March 2018, it will allow loading of grain from the tanks on the Prut to the loading terminal on the Danube. The project will be completed by mid-summer at the beginning of agricultural harvesting. Then, it will be possible to load ships with grains at the terminals of Prut and the Danube simultaneously, regardless of location of the storage facilities in the port.
