The company is planning to employ more than a hundred building organizations for the construction — it means thousands of workers who will get jobs. After the complex has been into operation, it will employ 60 people.
The transshipment terminal for grains and oilseeds, which was built in 2003, is a business card of Mykolayiv region.

Since 2003 over 1000 vessels were shipped through the terminal, it amounts nearly 14,3 million tons of agricultural products.
A business card of the facility in Nova Odesa town will become a new revolutionary technological solution, provided with the latest equipment. In particular, the complex will be equipped with three truck tippers (which will increase capacity by 1,5 times and will allow to accept three crops), 2 conveyor lines and 3 scalping machines in elevator tower, new dryers made by Cimbria Unigrain A/S, Denmark, will be installed, their capacity is 100 tons per hour and they are larger than average silos for wet grain (200 tons each); capacity of the equipment for loading will be increased (bucket conveyors, conveyors, loading machine) to 500 tons per hour, they informed at the company.
The berth, where the above-mentioned loading machine will be located, is the first step in the revival of passenger traffic in the region — and then throughout Ukraine.
