    Murmansk Commercial seaport PJSC says four new portal cranes, several state-of-the-art loaders and other equipment has been put into operation from the beginning of 2016 under the company’s technical upgrading programme.

    Two Aist cranes were placed at the berths of cargo district No 1. Their boom reach is 0 to 32 m, cargo capacity – 18 t in grab mode and up to 32 t in hook mode.

    Two Vityaz cranes have a boom reach of 0 to 40 m and can lift 32 t in grab mode and up to 100 t in hook mode.

    Both types of cranes were designed by Saint-Petersburg based company SMM CJSC.

    Besides, the company has recently acquired a high-performance Volvo L150 H loader with bucket capacity of 6.8 cbm and a TEREX TS 70L loader.

    Murmansk Commercial seaport pays special attention to improvement of its comprehensive dust suppression system. Within the framework of its environmental programme the port purchased and put into operation a vacuum sweeper manufactured by Czech Republic-based Kobit. This state-of-the-art sweeper, sometimes referred to as “vacuum cleaner” has a 7-cbm waste collector and a 1,700-litre water tank.
    It is the second sweeper in the fleet of the port’s vacuum equipment.

    Positive dynamics in solving the port’s environmental problems is confirmed by the regular air monitoring carried out by the specialists of the Clean Seas, international environmental fund. In its HI’16 report they mark a reduction of suspended solids in the snow within the area of Murmansk port influence by almost a half: from 1,116.0 mg/dm2 o 670.0 mg/ dm2, which confirms the efficiency of air protection measures undertaken by Murmansk Commercial seaport. No violation of health standards was registered.

    Nevertheless, Murmansk Commercial seaport is set to build up technological capacity of its dust suppression system. With two new mobile dust suppression units tailored to operate at low temperatures and expected for the delivery in late October, the port will have six units of this type by winter season.

    Murmansk Commercial seaport was founded in 1994. MMTP operates 17 berths of total length of about 3 km. The waters depths allow the port to accommodate vessels with draft of 15.5 m and length of more than 265 m. 

    In 2015 Murmansk Commercial seaport  transshipped 14.6 mln t of cargo including 13.6 mln t of coal (93.3% of total throughput). Over the year the company handled 291 vessels and 206,207 wagons.
