Congratulations on the International Day of the Seafarer!

On the International Day of the Seafarer, we extend our greetings to all those involved in this celebration and are happy to share some good news that is directly related to this event.

The book “On the Black Sea Waves. 33 Centuries of the Dug Sea” by Ukrainian maritime author Anton Sanchenko has been published. This book reflects the Ukrainian perspective on the history of the Black Sea from the 13th century B C to 2022.

One of its key chapters is dedicated to NIBULON, a company that has always struggled to keep Ukraine a maritime state and has made a significant contribution to the development of shipping and shipbuilding. The company has been developing its own fleet and internal logistics for more than 10 years. Even now, in times of war, we provide work to the famous shipbuilders of Mykolaiv and take care of maritime traditions and historical heritage, including through specialized literature. Anton Sanchenko’s book is a worthy record of NIBULON’s remarkable legacy, and we gladly supported this initiative.

Anton Sanchenko, author of the book “On the Black Sea Waves. 33 Centuries of the Dug Sea”,

“NIBULON greatly contributed to the publication of the book. When I arrived in Mykolaiv in 2022, despite the ongoing shelling, the company organized a tour of NIBULON Shipbuilding and Shiprepair Yard, and Serhii Kalkutin, the head of the logistics department, told me the company’s history, particularly from the perspective of the development of shipping. This development was especially significant against the backdrop of the decline of all other Ukrainian shipping companies, such as Black Sea Shipping Company and Ukrrichflot, during that time.

To me, NIBULON represents the impulse of renewal, which Ukrainians have had to undertake over and over again for thousands of years. It is difficult to find a house (or an elevator) older than 100 years in Ukraine. Now we understand why. The same goes for shipping on the Dnipro River. We once again need to restore it. The key is to make it better than before, as NIBULON can do.

I knew that the book needed to end with a positive (successful) example, so I chose the story of NIBULON for this purpose. The sudden death of Oleksiy Vadaturskyy and the rescue of the company by Andriy Vadaturskyy, responses to all wartime challenges, demining of land, and transfer of grain flows to the Danube only confirmed my choice. I repeat a phrase from the book that, unfortunately, became a reality:
‘If Oleksiy Opanasovych needed to build a dam on the Dnipro to increase crop yields, NIBULON would have built it.’ Well, now we have a dam that will need to be rebuilt after de-occupation. I hope for the influence of NIBULON, which will enable this despite the lamentations of ethnographers who believe the Great Meadow should be left as it is. In short, there is a lot of work ahead. Thank you for your help and contribution to the history.”
