Sabetta Dredging 2015 Completed
Mordraga LLC, part of the DEME group, successfully completed this year’s dredging operations at Sabetta port on the Yamal Peninsula of Russia.
During the short ice-free season, from July until mid-October 2015, Mordraga – as subcontractor of USK MOST Group – worked on the project in the Gulf of Ob.
In Sabetta itself, the company dredged a turning basin and a supply harbor, IAA PortNews reports.
About 150 kilometers further north, the company deepened a 50-kilometer stretch of a 205-meter wide fairway to 15.1 meters.
The new port on the Yamal Peninsula will support year-round navigation along the Northern Sea Route and will facilitate shipment of LNG from the Yamal facility to the countries of Western Europe, North and South America, and the Asia Pacific region.
