During a working trip to the Odesa region, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy got himself acquainted with the course of reconstruction of berth № 7 of the Odesa seaport.
Minister of Infrastructure Vladyslav Krykliy noted that the berth was built in 1963, and its service life expired 50 years later. Due to this, the berth has not worked for almost seven years.
"Yesterday the State Architectural and Construction Inspectorate issued a certificate of commissioning the berth, so we will start transshipment and full-fledged work," the Minister said.
"This is an important technological step forward. The first part of the seventh berth in Odesa is almost completely built. There are modern technologies here,” the President noted during a conversation with the media.
The Head of State noted that the reconstruction of the second part of the berth will begin next year.
"In total, it will be 357 meters - the longest berth in the Odesa region, which will increase transshipment and profit for the state," Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed.
