Tuapse Commercial Seaport has inaugurated a 2.4 million tonne-capacity
grain terminal, which is now the largest in southern Russia. Grain
shipped in by rail widens can be cleaned and sorted. Storage capacity of
102,000 tonnes is available and daily throughput in the region of 5,000
tonnes. Total investment amounted to $60 million. Along with
Novorossiysk, the new facility at Tuapse should help Russia considerably
increase the amount of grain it exports via the Black Sea. BC
