    Russian seaports slightly increased their throughput in 2022 — Rosmorrechflot

    Production facilities of Russian seaports grew by 36.64 million tonnes

    An important result of the Federal Marine and River Transport Agency (Rosmorrechflot) in 2022 was the recovery of pre-pandemic volumes (those of 2019) in seaports — about 840 million tonnes, as well as the consistent implementation of projects on development and construction of ships, says Rosmorrechflot.

    In 2021, Russian seaports handled 835.2 million tonnes, up 1.7%, year-on-year.

    In the part of infrastructure development amid unfavorable situation of foreign sanctions, the country managed to prevent freezing of the projects and continue the construction of all the key infrastructure facilities. Deadlines of some projects have been postponed due to delays in supply of equipment, disruption of start-up/set-up schedules an adjustment of design documentations for equipment replacement.

    Production facilities of Russian seaports grew by 36.64 million tonnes with the successful implementation of the following projects:

    - construction of dedicated coal port at Cape Otkryty in the Primorsky Territory – Port Vera of 4.55 million tonnes in capacity;
    - construction of LNG complex infrastructure in Kamchatka – 5.43 million tonnes;
    - construction of a sea terminal in the port of Vysotsk, near CS Portovaya – 1.66 million tonnes;
    - commissioning of dry bulk cargo terminal in the port of Taman - 25 million tonnes.

    Even more facilities are to be put into operation in 2023: LNG terminal in the Murmansk Region – 10.4 million tonnes, coal terminal Sukhodol in the Primorsky Territory – 12 million tonnes, multipurpose port terminal in Ust-Luga – 8 million tonnes and floating storage facility of LNG terminal in Bechevinskaya Bay - 11 million tonnes.

    According to the statement, cargo flows are being successfully redirected eastwards from the North-West Basin (handling of containerized cargo I the Far East ports in 11 months of 2022 rose by 8.3%).

    In the water transport segment, successful links with the Kaliningrad Region was ensured amid the restrictions imposed by unfriendly countries (he number of ships supplying the region was increased from 3 units as of March 2022 to 18 units as of the end of 2022).

    Kerch ferry link was recovered within a short period of time: from 9 October 2022 to 4 January 2023 it carried almost 58 thousand passengers, over 42 thousand vehicles and about 5 thousand railway cars. The ferries operating on the line made about 1,400 voyages.

    Efficient ferry services were organized to link Russian seaports with Turkey.

    Underway is the scheduled construction of the fleet for inland water ways and service ships for sea harbors.

    Basin administration took delivery of 16 vessels including four buoy tenders of Project 3052, six survey ships of Project 3330, two non-self-propelled dredgers of Project 4395 and four survey ships of Project RDB 66.62.

    The support fleet has been expanded with six sea-going ships including one ship of Project NE-020.2, one hydrographic ship of Project Е35.Г, two buoy tenders of Project BLV03, one railway ferry of Project CNF19M (General Chernyakhovsky – sister ship of Marshal Rokossovsky delivered in 2021) and one firefighting tugboat of Project NE011.
