At the session of the Government on September 14, Vice-premier M. Chakiyev supervising transport and communication sphere reported on the work carried out at Balkan Shipyard. It is planned to start building various class and type ships at the shipyard in near future. It includes RO-RO ferries for transportation of wheeled machines (vehicles, trucks, trailers and railway carriers). This type of maritime transportation of railway carriers without interim re-loading of cargo in port is the most productive and its implementation allows saving time for cargo operations.
In this regard, Turkmen leader noted the requirement in such crafts for long distance transportation as well as the presence of big opportunities for transit. Expansion of maritime fleet of the country, arrangement of various shipbuilding would support the growth of cargo turnover by sea, the President said.
