Conference on Ports and Navigation Kicks Off

The 12th International transport fair, the Transtek-214 started in Saint-Petersburg two days ago. The fair was excellent place to organize the 4th International Conference on ports and navigation development.

During the event, FSUE “Rosmorport” General Director Andrey Tarasenko made a report on topic: “Marine hub-port as a center of competitiveness capacity raise of the Regions: Kaliningrad, Murmansk and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky hubs“.

Tarasenko took the opportunity to introduce to the audience possible prospects of deep-water hub-ports construction projects. He underlined that construction of hub-ports in Russia will allow not only to strengthen international contacts, but also to develop already existing international transport corridors and create new ones, including the Northern Sea Route.

He mentioned high potential for cargo traffic increase of transport corridors on the Northern Sea Route and possibility to turn ports of Murmansk and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky into ports of world significance, taking into the account their geographical location, suitable depths and climate.

Realization of these deep-water port construction projects in Kaliningrad Region is currently being studied. In the future, volumes of transshipment in such ports could reach the rate of 50 million tons annually and the passenger carrying capacity of approximately 1 million.

Andrey Tarasenko finished his speech by underlining that realization of the above mentioned projects will have positive effect not only on Russian marine seaports competitiveness, but on the country economics as well.
