On September 20, during the international TRANS EXPO ODESA MYKOLAIV 2019 Forum, NIBULON put into operation its 140-m NIBULON MAX floating vessel.

NIBULON, a leader in the agrarian market and shipbuilding sector of Ukraine, once again demonstrated its productivity, innovation, and efficiency. Recently, the company has put into operation a 140-m NIBULON MAX river-sea floating vessel, the longest one built for the past 25 years of Ukraine’s independence. The vessel flies the Ukrainian flag. The event was held as part of the international TRANS EXPO ODESA MYKOLAIV 2019 Forum organized by NIBULON together with MediaCompass at NIBULON shipbuilding and repair yard in Mykolaiv.

NIBULON MAХ will enable the company to increase the annual river transshipment by fleet by 2-3 million tons per year and to increase transshipment volumes by NIBULON’s fleet up to 5 million tons per year.

The 2018/19 marketing year became the most successful in the history of NIBULON’s shipping company. We achieved the goal set, having transported more than 3.5 million tons of various cargoes by inland waterways; thus, the company has increased transportation volumes by 40 %.  Consequently, NIBULON removed more than 145 thousand trucks from roads.

By the end of this year, the company’s fleet will number 80 units. Most of the vessels were constructed according NIBULON’s own projects and at its own shipyard.  During this day, NIBULON keel-laid new vessels, namely Т410 harbour tug designed for pushing and docking operations and non-self-propelled B1500 project open type vessel. The vessels will transport building cargoes along the Southern Buh River.

According to NIBULON’s General Director, Hero of Ukraine Oleksiy Vadaturskyy, the company has already invested more than USD 2.1 billion in Ukraine’s economy, USD 600 million of which were allocated to construct the fleet. “Today, we have proved by actions that Mykolaiv is a productive region. NIBULON does everything to make Ukraine a maritime state, rather than just a country with a sea coast”, he mentioned. Oleksiy Vadaturskyy also added that one working place in shipbuilding ensures 10 new jobs in related sectors. Thus, the company has created not less than 10 thousand workplaces in metallurgy, construction, and service sector.
