ASTARTA to commission 3 new grain elevators

In July ASTARTA is to commission 3 grain storage complexes in Poltava region. These are Yareski grain silo (with the capacity of 100 thousand tons), Lutovynivka grain silo (100 thousand tons) and Skorokchodove grain silo (30 thousand tons) which are to operate starting from this harvesting campaign. New facilities are aimed to cover both ASTARTA subsidiaries’ and local partners’ needs.

Two intake lines with 150 mt/hr capacity each are in operation at Yareski and Lutovynivka silos and one 150 mt/hr line at Skorokchodove silo. All are equipped with an automatic control system and necessary transport infrustructure. Total CAPEХ for the projects was around EUR 32 mln.

With the launching of these 3 elevators, ASTARTA’s grain storage investment program (started in 2015 aiming at over 500 thousand tons) is around 70% fulfilled. Thus, the company operates 5 modern grain silos in Poltava, Vinnytsia and Khmelnytsky regions and plans to undertake further steps aimed at meeting the mentioned program target.
