The concession company is initiating creation of a working group involving the Ministry concerned and SPILNO Office

Given the Orders “On Closure of the Seaports” https://zakon.rada.gov.ua/laws/show/z0470-22#Text and “On Approval of the List of War Zones or Territories Temporarily Occupied by the Russian Federation” https://minre.gov.ua/doc/doc/104, Port of Kherson LLC will start working when its area is safe again and the navigation renews. In order to have had a detailed and approved scheme for revitalizing by that time, the Company is initiating creation of a working group to cover these issues together with the Ministry of Development of Communities, Territories and Infrastructure of Ukraine and SPILNO Project Management Office for Development of Public-Private Partnership. By now, the situation remains hard. The city undergoes daily shelling. Therefore, the ship traffic is impossible, as well as a full-scale stock-taking and any business activity in the docks area. Besides, it is commonly known that during the period of occupation of the city, in the area where the production capacities of Port of Kherson LLC are located there were deployed military formations of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. The preliminary amount of losses and massive destruction is large enough and continues to increase; it would not change, however, the Company’s plans to invest into the Port in future as an object of the concession or into the local infrastructure in compliance with the Concession Contract signed. Despite all that, we strongly believe in this project and the successful future of the heroic Kherson. These feelings have remained firm since 2019 when we just started submitting documents within the framework of a concession procedure. In the end of 2021, after the port property was placed under our management, the updating and retrofitting process began in line with a detailed strategy. Now, with the plan adapted in detail on hand, we’d like to resume our teamwork at the berths when it is possible and completely safe, say the top executives of Port of Kherson LLC. It should be recalled that Kherson Commercial Seaport went under control of a concession company on 24 December 2021.

Today is a historic day, we are regaining Kherson – address by the President of Ukraine

Ukrainians! Strong people of our indomitable, beautiful and united country! Today is a historic day. We are regaining the south of our country, regaining Kherson. As of now, our defenders are approaching the city, there is still quite a bit left and we are starting to enter. However, special units are already in the city. The people of Kherson were waiting. They never gave up on Ukraine. Hope for Ukraine is always justified – and Ukraine always regains its own. I am happy to see how people, despite all the threats, despite the repression and abuse of the occupiers, cherished the Ukrainian flags, believed in Ukraine… And even when the city is not yet completely cleansed of the enemy’s presence, the people of Kherson themselves are already removing Russian symbols and any traces of the occupiers’ stay in Kherson from the streets and buildings. It was the same in all other cities liberated by our defenders. It will be the same in those cities that are still waiting for our return. Ukraine will come to all its people. Due to our strength on the battlefield and in diplomacy, we will restore the territorial integrity of our state. I thank every warrior and every unit of the defense forces who are making this offensive operation in the south possible now. Absolutely everyone – from privates to generals. The Armed Forces, intelligence, Security Service, National Guard – all who were bringing this day closer for the Kherson region. We will name all the heroes soon. And they will be awarded even sooner. Shortly after our defense forces reach the designated frontiers, stabilization measures will begin in Kherson, as was the case everywhere. We consistently neutralize the threats. The first is mines. The occupiers left a lot of mines and explosives, in particular on vital objects. We will carry out demining. It is very important: now, when demining has not even begun, we cannot ensure access of media representatives to Kherson. It is necessary to demine at least basic communications, check the main objects. We will restore all conditions of normal life – as much as possible. Our defenders are immediately followed by policemen, sappers, rescuers, energy workers… Medicine, communications, social services are returning… Life is returning. I sincerely thank everyone who cares about Ukraine! Glory to everyone who fights for freedom! Eternal memory to all those whose lives were taken by the occupiers. Glory to Ukraine!

The concession company commences administration of the Port of Kherson and deems a fast and full-fledged renewal of the port’s activities to be its first and paramount task

Now this unique port in the mouth of the Dnieper River will work according to the up-to-date standards, said Oleksandr Minov, a co-owner of Risoil and Port of Kherson LLC, commenting on the successful completion of the concession procedure. It finally became possible after the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority, Risoil-Kherson LLC and Port of Kherson LLC had signed Deeds of Transfer within the framework of a 30-year concession. The Port of Kherson will be upgraded, which will increase its efficiency considerably. We are talking about investing at least UAH 216 million into the Port in the coming 3 years and 6 months and at least UAH 18 million into the infrastructure of Kherson. In particular, we are planning to co-finance the major repair of the roads approaching the Port and a new site for trucks beyond the city limits, says Oleksandr Kubrakov, Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine. The thorough preparation allows launching all the processes in the shortest possible time. We are going to apply the up-to-date approach, advanced equipment and technologies, which means not only an increase in volumes of cargos transshipped, but also higher wages for employees, improved working conditions and safety, compliance with the high environmental standards, stressed Oleksandr Minov. Port of Kherson LLC has been incorporated on the initiative of the companies of RISOIL Group and Georgian Industrial Group. First of all, the concession company is planning to launch the updating and overhaul of the equipment, mechanization of warehouses, increasing the storage capacities to store grain simultaneously for account of installation of some additional silos. To this effect, a scheduled plan of investments has already been approved and detailed project reports have been worked out. It ought to be noted that the Port is versatile, given both the freight nomenclature to be handled and its location. The managers of Port of Kherson LLC stress that despite its relatively small area, the Port can be very efficient. It was the obsolete equipment, facilities, and technologies used in the Port prior to the concession that led to the downfall in transshipment volumes and impairment of the company’s financial situation. All that shall be a thing of the past, the company adds. It should be recalled that the Concession Contract for the property of Kherson Commercial Seaport was signed on 26 June 2020 in the presence of Volodymyr Zelenskyi, the President of Ukraine. The consulting support throughout the concession procedure was given by SPILNO Project Management Office for Development of Public-Private Partnership.
