ULCT Handles Cargo for Nord Stream 2

Ust-Luga Container Terminal, a member of the Global Ports Group (ULCT), finished handling OCEAN DREAM vessel that delivered large-size gas heating equipment from Chioggia in Italy. The equipment was delivered for the Nord Stream 2 infrastructure project.

For now the cargo remains in ULCT’s yards and when cleared by the customs it will be delivered to the construction site of the Slavyanskaya compressor station in the Kingisepp District of the Leningrad Region.

This is the second shipment of equipment for Nord Stream 2 handled at ULCT. The terminal was selected by the shipper due to its infrastructure capabilities that allow to efficiently handle and store oversize cargo with subsequent shipment by rail or by truck.
