NCSP Group says its consolidated cargo turnover for January-February comprised 23800 thousand tons, in line with first two months of 2016.
Transshipment of cargo in February totaled 11130 thousand tons versus 12670 thousand tons in January, mostly because February was a shorter month also beset by adverse weather. In February storm warnings at the port of Novorossiysk lasted for over 15 days and totaled 373 hours, which is 21% longer than in January, when storm warnings lasted for some 309 hours.
Transshipment of liquid cargo in January-February totaled 18566 thousand tons, including 12745 thousand tons of crude oil, 5601 thousand tons of oil products, 131 thousand tons of UAN, and 89 thousand tons of seed oils.
Transshipment of bulk cargo increased by 16.2% YoY (or by 333 thousand tons) and reached 2401 thousand tons.
Grain and coal performed best as their transshipment increased by 37.6% YoY (by 429 thousand tons) and by 18.7% YoY (53 thousand tons) reaching 1569 thousand tons and 337 thousand tons respectively.
Volumes of iron ore, chemical cargo, and raw sugar in the first two months of 2017 comprised 340 thousand tons, 124 thousand tons, and 31 thousand tons respectively.
Transshipment of general cargo in January-February totaled 1944 thousand tons, including 1680 thousand tons of ferrous metals and pig iron, 181 thousand tons of non-ferrous metals, 56 thousand tons of timber, and 27 thousand tons of perishable cargo. Decrease in ferrous metals and pig iron volumes is due to adverse weather and the ensuing 50% restriction on railroad dispatches for Novorossiysk, and shipments being postponed.
Transshipment of containers in January-February totaled 861 thousand tons or 84 thousand TEU.
Transshipment of other cargo in January-February totaled 28 thousand tons.
