Terminal

AS Alexela Sillamäe is a daughter company of 
AS Alexela Logistics, which stores dark oil products 
and shale oil. The Sillamäe terminal handles the
transit of oil products and export of shale oil 
produced in Estonia. The terminal accepts 
products from railway tanks, trucks and vessels, 
stores them in the tanks of customs or excise 
warehouses and issues the goods onto vessels or 
other means of transport as required by the customer.

The terminal is linked to the Estonian Railway via the Vaivara station; it also has access to the rail tracks of the rail station of Sillamäe Port.

The railway tank wagon handling facilities allow the simultaneous unloading of 2×44, 2×18 and 2×20 railway tank wagons. We use both upper and lower unloading devices. Closed circulation based on thermal oil is used for heating fuels. The unloading process of a railway wagon can take up to 24 hours in wintertime.
