Железнодорожный транспорт терминала химических грузов

In the late 1990s - early 2000s, Lengiprotrans designed railway approaches to the Vysotsk seaport. A project was developed for railway transport of the terminal for reloading liquid ammonia and methanol. This was due to the need to transport oil products to the sea terminal, designed to transship 10.75 million tons of oil products per year.

The Vysotsk seaport is located in the Vyborg Bay of the Baltic Sea. Within its borders are located: a coal terminal, an oil terminal, a terminal for the production and transshipment of liquefied natural gas. Active development of the port began in the mid-1990s.
