Acron France SAS, an international trading and distribution company and member of the Acron Group, has signed long-term agreements to lease terminal warehouse facilities in the port of Rouen, France, and the port of Ghent, Belgium.

The agreements provide for using tanks to store high-performance liquid fertiliser urea and ammonium nitrate solution (UAN) in the amount of up to 40 000 t in Rouen and 15 000 t in Ghent, starting from 1 May 2018.

Rubis Terminal in Rouen will receive UAN-32 from Acron’s production facilities in Russia and ship it to French consumers by road, rail and water.

At Fertigent Terminal in Ghent, solution can be diluted immediately when loaded into tank trucks for shipping to customers, mainly in Belgium and north and east of France.

The first vessel carrying 33 000 t of UAN-32 was shipped to Rouen from BCT Terminal, a member of Acron Group (Sillamäe, Estonia), last month.

Dmitry Khabrat, Acron Vice President Overseas, said: “The lease of tanks will ensure timely delivery of UAN to buyers in Western Europe, bolster our positions and increase sales in this important market. According to our estimates, sales via both terminals will considerably exceed 300 000 t already this year”.
