It is planned to produce 150,000 tons of salt per month in Transcarpathia. The first deliveries will begin in six months.



As part of an investment agreement with Cation Invest LLC, Zakarpattya began to produce salt from a local deposit. This was announced by the head of the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration Viktor Mikita.

As a result of hostilities in the Donetsk region, back in April, the state enterprise "Artyomsol" was forced to stop its work, which provided 100% of the country's needs for salt.

Ukrainian retailers have organized alternative sources of supplies from Poland, Hungary and Romania.

The head of the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration is confident that the new mining enterprise will be able to meet the needs of Ukrainians in salt by 100%.

Victor Mikita also told at what stage the construction of production facilities is and when the first "results of the enterprise's work" are planned.

We have already begun engineering work on the construction of an access road, marking drilling sites, arranged places for workers, and so on. At the same time, modern equipment for industrial deep drilling was purchased. Transcarpathia will receive the first batches of high quality salt in six months. First, technical salt will be mined, which is used to sprinkle roads in winter. After the planned infrastructure development, the enterprise will start supplying table salt to the population,” Mikita said.

Recall that SE "Artyomsol" was the largest salt mining enterprise in Europe.
