MISC | CEE Container Terminals

Hi,

I'd like to start a topic on the Central / Southern / Eastern Euopean container terminals - small and big ones, new and old, projected and never built.

In order to make intermodal transport running smooth in our region we need good infrastructure and reasonable transport policies.

Numerous countries and companies engage in (in most cases scaterred and lacking coherency) various container / Ro-La / logistics projects. I think there is much to write about and report on.

Slovakia: ŽSR will invest in the construction of TIP Žilina almost EUR 40m

Slovak Railways intends to invest in the construction of the intermodal terminal (TIP) Žilina, which will serve to combine rail and truck transportation, nearly EUR 40m.

With its implementation should start in 2011, the construction completion is scheduled for two years later. The terminal will be located between the railway track Žilina – Vrútky and the water work Žilina. Its construction would create 25 new jobs.

Is it too late to rename the thread, CEE Intermodal Terminals?

I totally agree, the thread should be generally speaking on all types of intermodal facilities.

And a fresh newspiece on Záhony :

Ukraine's Vorskla Steel to Develop EUR 650m Mill in Hungary

Ukraine-based steel manufacturing company, Vorskla Steel AG, plans to develop a steel mill with an investment of EUR 650m. The mill will be located in an upcoming industrial and logistics park in Záhony, Hungary, near the Ukrainian border.

The project is expected to generate about 1,000 employment opportunities. The industrial and logistics park is being developed as part of developments planned in the Záhony region, which has railway connections to Russia and Ukraine.

That's great news for that area. One would hope this would make the Zahony intermodal terminal more busy.

If I'm right, Intercontainer is the sole user at the moment.

It amazes me at how much of the East Europe/CIS border areas is empty space. If only Britain has the same kind of land available next to it's railways!

Nice shots Bartje.

I believe that Kombiverkehr runs a service to/from Coevorden and Ludwigshafen on a regular basis.

Bartje, do you live near to the terminal, or have you been there?

If so, you may be able to answer a question for me. On the website http://www.eu-park.com there are photos showing the use of the refrigerated rail wagons formerly owned by Intercontainer-Interfrigo.

Have you seen them there?

Jeroen, do you mean the rail terminals in Rotterdam, or the shipping terminals?

If you mean the latter, this thread is not about that type of terminal, it's about road/rail terminals (unless I'm mistaken).

The road/rail terminals at the Maasvlakte are big, but by no means the largest in Europe. Some of the largest in Europe are in Germany, at Hamburg (Billwerder), Cologne (Eifeltor) and Munich (Riem), in Italy, at Busto Arsizio and Verona, and France offers a rather large facility in Paris, at Valenton.

In any case, shouldn't we be focusing on terminals in the CEE countries?

I'd rather we talked on the CEE ones, but of course its useful to have some comparision.

Here is a pic from the TKD Dobrá terminal in Slovakia, that is now in the hands of Transcontainer. It has great potential (look at Slovak economy's structure and the statistics of rail transit traffic). It is very intersting where this Russian-Slovak cooperation leads both parties to.

Intermodal must boom here, just look at the interest it generates (new acquirements by CTL, OKD, Kulczyk Investments).

I think we will see a significant expansion over the next ten years in CEE intermodal services.

There are already several operators who link the CEE with the EU parts of Europe, namley Kombiverkehr and Intercontainer. These two will almost certainly offer more services when they feel they're able to.

Also, you have a logistics company like Gartner (www.gatnerkg.com) running it's own intermodal trains between Turkey and Austria. It's not inconcevable that a logistics company may do the same thing across the CEE.

New isssue of Horizon magazine is available (PR mag by OKD Doprava). They write about Paskov Container Terminal.

By the way - do you know if RCA is going to extend BILK is some way?

I've not come across anything suggesting this, although I've not been looking.

Plus, RCA itself publishes most of it's publicity material in German - including it's website - so I have little chance of reading any of that!

I haven't seen BILK for a while. Does it need expanding?

I doubt that with the current economic situation that RCA has forwarders and shipping lines queuing up with traffic to any great degree. Perhaps I'm wrong though.

They were used for transporting agriculturel products. The wagons are not longer a regular visitor of Coevorden, because the company Henk Hentzen (later Broekman) is no longer active in Coevorden.

Slovak Intermodal Terminals

There are several terminals:

Bratislava Central Freight Station
Bratislava Harbour
Košice
Žilina
Dobrá
Čierna nad Tisou
Dunajská Streda (private)
Sládkovičovo (private)

Bratislava Rusovce (closed)
Ružomberok (closed)
Trstená (closed)
Nové Zámky (cancelled)

Red lines - AGTC lines
Green lines - lines which are supposed to become AGTC lines

Green circles - Public terminals
Yellow squares - Private terminals
White cicrcles and white double circles - closed terminals
Red circles - planned network of new public inter-modal terminals



Planned network of new public inter-modal terminals which should be cofinanced by EU. You can see they will be in Bratislava, Košice, Žilina and Zvolen. The one in Žilina is already U/C.



Terminal in Dunajská Streda owned by Metrans:





Terminal in Košice:


Terminal Bratislava Harbour:






Terminal Čierna nad Tisou which is going to be extensively recnstructed:





This look like in horror movie, but it's supposed to defrost frozen iron ore and coal:




Terminal Dobrá is just next to Čierna nad Tisou:

[QUOTE=rheintram;40829916]RCA Terminal Wolfurt (Austria)

That's one of those clever little terminals found across Europe which has been shoe-horned into a spare bit of space.

How will RCA expand it? I would have thought it needs a brand new location to be re-built with longer handling tracks, for example.

Nice shots. Do you have any photos that show the terminal in more detail, more close-up?
