Project on construction of international sea terminal in Pionersky obtains state expert approval
Glavgosexpertiza (Russia’s Main Department of State Expertise) says it has completed re-consideration of the results of engineering surveys and the design documentation on construction of an international sea terminal at Pionersky, as well as audit of a cost estimate, and issued its positive opinion.
The construction of an international sea terminal on the shore of the Baltic Sea (Pionersky settlement of the Kaliningrad Region) as an expansion of Kaliningrad seaport’s infrastructure commenced on 1 February 2018. The terminal designed for cruise and freight/passenger ships is to become one of the largest infrastructure facilities in the North-West Region of Russia. It will be able to accept more than 400 ships per year with annual passenger turnover to make 305,000 people.
The project foresees the construction of a terminal building with a capacity of 1,236 passengers per hour, open cargo yards of 75,500 sqm, two berths with a total length of 725 meters and other facilities. The terminal’s water area will be 30.53 hectares.
Glavgosexpertiza repeated the assessment procedure after amendments were introduced in the project documentation following the initial assessment.
