The Romanian Black Sea port of Constanţa has expanded its operation capacity as two new terminals opened on Wednesday. One of them will allow wheel trucks to be unloaded straight from the vessels and will manage up to 80,000 vehicles a year, while a second, cargo terminal will handle heavy equipment for heavy and voluminous goods. The new facilities will help boost connectivity between the existing services of maritime and railroad transport in Romania, also improving the movement of goods between mainland Europe and the Black Sea, the Adriatic Sea and the North Sea.

The investment, worth some 65 million euros, and developed by the Dubai-based company DP WORLD, “will help make the port of Constanţa into a regional hub”, said prime minister Marcel Ciolacu:

These two new terminals will generate an additional one million tonnes of goods annually. This means billions more into the accounts of the companies operating here, revenues which will stimulate Romania’s economic growth. I’m convinced the new projects will bring substantial benefits and will facilitate interconnection at European and international level.”

Transport minister Sorin Grindeanu said the investment will help transform the port of Constanţa into a hub that will be the basis for future transport routes to Turkey and Georgia. “We can now say that the port of Constanţa is the most efficient commercial transport alternative to the Caspian Sea and the Far East”, Grindeanu said. He added that 2023 saw a record number of goods transiting Constanţa and that in this context, bilateral cooperation also targets other transport sectors such as air, road and rail.

The investment also marks the Dubai company’s 20-year-long anniversary of operation in Romania and is yet another significant landmark for the development of the partnership between Romania and the United Arab Emirates in the area of transport. The president of the company that made the investment, sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem said he was happy to see his company still in Romania after twenty years, and that Constanţa is the most important Black Sea port, with the biggest connectivity and with the best modern links with other ports.

Constanţa is already the largest container port in the Black Sea and next year will see the opening of a new multi-transport platform following a 50-million-euro investment by the same company.
