Over the period of 2006-2007, there were constructed the berth and a yard area behind it. Construction was done by sand filling with the use of specialized vessels. During the year of 2008, a terminal operation scheme was being elaborated in cooperation with all the regulatory authorities and departments of Odessa Port.
