is one of the leading
dry cargo terminals at the Riga Free Port.
was established in 1991 combining the ideas, visions, and funds of the founders
from three countries - Latvia, Russia and France.
The project design
was made by the LENMORNIIPROEKT institute and already by the end of 1991 the company
BALTMORGIDROSTROI started development of the berths. A powerful complex for transhipment
of Vorkuta coal witch an annual turnover of 1.5 million tons per year was created.
Officially we were registered in the Enterprises Registry of the Republic
of Latvia on 14 November 1991. In 1992 we started to operate the first stage of
our coal terminal. The annual turnover of cargo handling in 1992 - 1993 reached
9000 000 t. During the short period of 1991 - 1993 we created the basis for out
Several years passes, the situation changed and coal
started to disapper for our terminals, but our willingness to do business remained
the same. The port has to be loaded, but which type of cargo to attract? And we
made a step forward, new powerful technology appeared, open storage areas for
storing of coal were covered witch the concrete stabs, new access roads were build,
additional transformer sub-stations and lighting masts.
1994 we have adjusted coal terminal and have already now a real possibility to
receive, store and handle not only coal, although we still hope for its return
on our berths, but also pig iron, coce, timber and other types of cargo.
