Grampet Group announces the completion and start of tests for the largest transshipment terminal for agricultural products in Europe, following an investment of 10 million euros.

Located in Dorneşti (Suceava county), on the border with Ukraine, the new complex dedicated to the transshipment of agricultural products marks a new chapter in the Grampet Group’s efforts to modernize and make the railway infrastructure in the region more efficient and to support the reconstruction of Ukraine, according to a press release from the company.
“Romania has a major role in the operation of the solidarity corridors created by the EU member countries to facilitate the transport of goods originating from Ukraine. After the outbreak of the war, the railway operators within the Grampet Group contributed substantially to the flow of traffic and the reactivation of the main corridors on the North-South axis , ensuring the transport of more than 1.5 million tons of goods in the relationship with Ukraine. The new complex from Dorneşti will allow the transport of 240,000 tons of grain and agricultural products monthly, thus becoming a strategic point in smoothing the traffic of goods to the port Constanţa. This investment of 10 million euros is yet another proof of the commitment we assumed 25 years ago to contribute to the development of rail transport infrastructure in Romania and to connect us to the region. It is an achievement remarkable for Grampet, but also for Romania, and we want to thank our Ukrainian partners and all those who were involved in the completion of the project”, said Gruia Stoica, president of Grampet Group.

The Dorneşti terminal, the first operated by Grup Feroviar Român and the fifth by Grampet Group, is designed to operate permanently. With a maximum design capacity of 3 million tons, the complex is equipped with a wagon loading station (128 meters long) and an unloading station (120 meters long), which allow the simultaneous loading/unloading of eight wagons.
The facilities are similar to those of the terminals in sea and river ports, which makes it possible to transport products without loss of quality and at maximum capacity, i.e. 500 tons per hour.
Modern technological solutions and innovative approaches make it possible to provide optimal indicators of electricity consumption per ton of transshipped product. All technological processes are automated and coordinated by dedicated teams of specialists.
In addition, each line/conveyor belt can work on a separate route or simultaneously in pairs, which ensures a continuous and fast transport flow for grain and agricultural products originating from Ukraine and destined for export through the port of Constanţa.
