«Grain terminals and elevators 2020»

International conference

22 October 2020
Novorossiysk, Russia
Good day!
We invite you to take part in the international “Grain terminals and elevators” conference which will be held on the 22 of October 2020 in Novorossiysk, Russia (Hilton Garden Inn Novorossiysk hotel).

Due to the lack of elevator capacity for grain storage as well as the catastrophic elevators aging Russian farmers annually lose at least 10% of their crop. Lack of elevators in the southern regions of Russia is especially characteristic. Now the total capacity for grain storing in our country is 120 million tons of one-time storage, only 34 million tons from this amount are elevator storage (the rest are floor storage warehouses of non-elevator type). Only 40% form these 34 million tons are in state which allows to provide the grain quality and quantity safety. This is because the equipment is outdated since Soviet elevators service life is no more than 25-30 years and an insufficiently good aspiration system is used.

Situation with marine grain terminals is much better that’s because all of them were built during last 20 years. A lot of terminals passed the modernization and expansion stage. In addition, all deep-water grain terminals in the South of Russia have announced plans for capacity development. So, by 2021/2022 grain year the new berth №40A is planned to be put in operation on the Delo Group grain terminal. That berth will allow receiving vessels with a deadweight of about 100-110 thousand tons, which will create new opportunities for exporters. The same size of vessels is planned to receive in new projects in Taman – on “Taman grain terminal” and dry cargo area in port of Taman.

In front of this the state on linear elevators is depressing: the physical deterioration of their fixed assets is on average 70%, while these objects are obsolete and inferior to modern elevators in terms of specific energy consumption by 1.2-1.5 times, in terms of specific material consumption - by 1.3-1.5 times, and in terms of automation - by 2-3 times.

What to do in this situation? On this question we will try to find the answer on the “Grain terminals and elevators 2020” conference.

Among the conference topics:

  • river grain terminals in logistics chain
  • projected and under construction grain terminals overview
  • innovations in elevators technical equipment
  • equipment import substitution program for grain export and storage
  • technologies for pollutant emissions reducing
  • ways to improve the quality of grain exports
  • foreign experience in creating modern grain handling complexes and elevators
Conference will take two days. Main business program will be on the 22th of October 2020 and on the next day excursion to one of grain terminals in port of Novorossiysk and dinner in “Vinoterria” wine restaurant in Seven mountains valley is expected.

You are kindly invited to discuss the indicated subjects!
