“Ukrdonivest” company won the auction for the acquisition of Bilhorod-Dnistrovsky port – the final price is more than 220 million hryvnias (6 mln USD)

The price of privatization of this object has more than doubled – from 94 million to about 220 million UAH. 

“We had three participants, the starting price was almost 94 million hryvnias (2.6 mln USD),” – Oleksandr Slavskyi, head of the regional branch of the State Property Fund of Ukraine for the Odesa and Mykolaiv regions, said during his briefing at the Media Center Ukraine – Odesa.  

Oksana Kiktenko, acting director of the state-owned “Bilhorod-Dniester Sea Trade Port”, added, that in 2022 the port processed more than 270 tons of various products, working in the “dry port” mode.

“This port includes all the necessary facilities that can provide all port services. Perhaps there will no longer be such objects for privatization. We are the only port in which there is one stevedore – a state owned company… The new owner can already come in and organize business. This is a working enterprise… Its potential is to handle 1 million cargoes without investment, but after investing money, the port will be able to handle 2 million tons of cargo” –  Oksana Kiktenko said.

However, as Oleksandr Slavsky noted, the enterprise needs large investments, which will become a factor for the growth of the economy of the region and Bilhorod-Dnistrovsky district.

The previous winner of the auction was the limited liability company “Ukrdoninvest”, which offered 220 million 100 thousand hryvnias, whose main activity, according to the Youcontol service, is freight railway transport.
