Project cargo for Ukrainian nuclear plant finds its way through by rail

WCA Projects on Farcont Project

The Odessa-based logistics services company Farcont Project, saw a complex delivery to Ukraine come to a close, after seven long months. Despite the closure of the Odessa ports, it managed to ship in the material via the Polish ports, followed by an overland shipment by rail.

This project, which began in December of 2022, involved the delivery of approximately 5000 cubic metres of material and equipment, including three units each weighing 117 metric tonnes, for a nuclear power plant in war-torn Ukraine.

The transport

Farcont Project’s CEO, Yuryi Kovalenko, mentioned that despite Odessa Port being inaccessible due to the illegal presence of Russian forces blocking access, the company was able to continue its operations by using rail to transport the cargo through Poland and Romania.

The cargo was imported through Polish seaports with special permits. Following their arrival in Poland, arrangements were made to reload and transport the cargo by rail to Ukraine. Farcont Projects then arranged for final delivery and unloading at the final job sites.
