The Ministry of Transport and Communications ratified a procedure on channel dues and pilot fee levy for passing through the deep-water Danube-Black Sea Channel.

These measures are adopted to ensure the navigation safety and provide adequate conditions for the channel maintenance and operation.

According to the Ministry's press-service, the channel dues payment for ships passing through the Bystre mouth are exercised in accordance with terms and rates on the harbour dues for ships in the oversea navigation - 0.14 USD per cubic meter volume, and 0.014 USD - for ships in the coastwise navigation, Cabinet press office informed.

The Danube-Black Sea Channel launched in experimental operation mode April 18, and it is an alternative to Romanian channels and is considered to be a considerable competitor for them, as the passing fee in the Ukrainian channel is much lower rather than in the Romanian one - it is lower by 40%.

70 ships have already passed through the Ukrainian delta of the Danube-Black Sea Channel since the fairway resumption.
