Vysotsk Seaport Dredging Completed (Russia)

Vysotsk Seaport has commissioned its reconstructed berths No. 1-4, the Northern and Southern malls of entering gates, and the underwater structures of the seaport area at the entrance, comprising 109 hectares.

The reconstruction of those facilities was performed by FSUE “Rosmorport” from 2008 to 2012, in accordance with the federal target program “Development of the Transport System of Russia (2010-2020)”, in order to increase the overload capacity of the coal terminal in Vysotsk Seaport. Total federal budget investments allocated for the reconstruction of the coal terminal in 2008-2012 amounted to 3.3 billion roubles.

In the framework of the reconstruction, project dredging works were conducted in the water area of the seaport covering 33 hectares, with degradation of the bottom level to -12.7 meters, and at the approaching channel to the seaport covering 76 hectares, with degradation of the bottom level to -13,0 meters. Besides, new floating aids to navigation were installed. During 3 years of dredging works the total amount of extracted soil was 970 thousand cubic meters.

Besides, in order to operate at maximum allowable load (category “0”) four cargo berths No. 1-4 were reconstructed and a 100-meter wing was constructed at berth No. 1. The total length of the berth wall of the coal terminal after completion of the construction reached almost 782 meters.

As it had been planned originally, the reconstruction of port infrastructure facilities ensured safe entrance and mooring at the coal terminal berths of vessels with deadweight up to 50 thousand tons and draught in cargo of 10.35 meters, which in turn allowed increased cargo turnover of the Vysotsk Seaport coal terminal. In 2013, coal turnover in the seaport exceeded 4.9 million tons, which is 1.6 times more than in 2008.
