Belgian logistics, commercial and industrial real estate developer Alinso Group has opened today an independently managed inter-modal railway terminal in Ploiesti following an investment of approximately EUR 7 million. The Allianso Terminal Ploiesti will be operated in partnership with Rail Cargo Austria. For the beginning there will be four trains operated each week but the company estimates to reach several trains per day after the second phase of the project will be completed.
The first finalized phase of the project has 19.500 sqm, a rail track length of 1,130 m and a total storage capacity of 1,028 TEU. The total project will cover 10 ha with a storage capacity of 5,000 TEU and 2.2 km of rail track length and will be completed in 2013.
The terminal is intended to become a hub for cargo delivered by standard TEU containers (both normal and temperature-controlled) and unitized bulk cargo. It offers access to DN1, DN1A, DN72 and the future A3 Bucharest – Ploiesti highway.
The termainal is also located close to the Ploiesti West Park business park which is developed by Alinso in partnership with local Piritex. Ploiesti West Park has a total construction value of buildings and infrastructure works of 750 million EUR for the duration of the project.
