Hutchison in at Chornomorsk

December 19 - Hutchison Ports has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the government of Ukraine for the development of Chornomorsk Port on the Black Sea.

Chornomorsk is one of the largest ports in the Black Sea handling a range of cargo including containers, ferries, general and bulk cargoes.

Situated in the southwestern region of Ukraine 20 km south of Odessa, Chornomorsk has established rail connections to the capital Kiev and an existing skilled workforce, said Hutchison Ports.

Clemence Cheng, managing director of Hutchison Ports Europe, said that the company has long seen the potential for growth in Ukraine's container business and is looking forward to working with the country's ministry of infrastructure to develop the port.
