New Black Sea Terminal of Port Kulevi and it Navigating Features
1 Batumi State Maritime Academy, Batumi, Georgia
ABSTRACT: In May, 2007 in Georgia the new Black Sea Terminal (including the complex of a railway junction, capacities for storage of oil) was opened in the port Kulevi. Necessity of creation of the named terminal in Georgia was caused by following factors: 1. The necessity of search and the creation new alternative ways of safe transportation of oil to Europe; 2. A favourable geographical position of Georgia - Asia, the Near East and Europe crossroads; 3. Presence of already existed means of communication between Georgia and oil-producing regions - Ka-zakhstan, Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan. Choosing the port and terminal place it was necessary to be guided first of all by maintenance of safety navi-gation and minimum expenses from the point of view of an economic profit. That is why the special attention was paid to search of a natural reservoir with an exit in the sea. This article deals with the questions of construction of the oil terminal, maintenance of port Kulevi with means of the navigating aids and features of entering and leaving vessels.
