Olvia Seaport Concession

Olvia Seaport



The Specialized Sea Port "Olvia" (Port of Olvia) is located in the Mykolaiv region on the left bank of the Dnipro-Bug estuary on the northern Black Sea coast.


The Port of Olvia handles a variety of cargoes, but mostly focuses on grain and construction materials, which account for 80% of the total volume of handled cargos in 2018. At the same time, a significant increase in grain exports requires additional investments in specialized grain handling capacities.


The State Enterprise "Stevedoring Company "Olvia" (SC Olvia) is a stevedoring company, one of the operators in the Mykolaiv region.


The enterprise has:

–       150 ha of total area;

–       2 warehouses for general cargo storage;

–       20 open storage areas;

–       7 berths of 1500 m total length;

–       10.3 m max depth;

–       22 cranes;

–       3 tug-boats;

–       100+ units of handling equipment;

–       27 units of transport;

–       rail and road connection;

–       approximately 600 skilled workers.


In 2018, SC Olvia handled 2.2 million tons of cargo. The revenues for 2018 amounted to approximately UAH 330 million.


SC Olvia, as a state enterprise, faces significant constraints in its development due to limited access to financing. The Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine has decided to apply the concession mechanism as the best way of attracting private investment into the port.


The proposed concession aims to give SC Olvia an opportunity to meet market challenges, improve its competitive position through commercial flexibility and investment in the rehabilitation and construction of new assets.


In order to structure the concession project, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) were appointed by the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine as lead transaction advisers.


Below you can find detailed publicly available information about SC Olvia.


Access to confidential information will be granted to potential bidders only after signing a non-disclosure agreement.
