FSUE “Rosmorport” in late April undertook a range of activities to accept the completed construction of the Root Section of the South-Eastern Ice Protection Facility (SEIPF) including the Artificial Plot of Land and Coastal Protection (coast protection facilities at sections I, II, III and IV).
Construction of the facility was carried out in the frame of realization of the major investment project on building of seaport facilities near the Sabetta settlement on the Yamal Peninsula, including creation of a navigable approach canal in the Gulf of Ob under the “Marine Transport” subprogram of the Federal Target Program “Russian transport system development (2010-2020).”
The facility was designed by JSC “LENMORNIIPROEKT” with the construction and installation works carried out by the general contractor JSC “Mezhregiontruboprovodstroy”.
The length of the root section of SEIPF is about 3 km. The design of the SEIPF root section envisages the formation of an artificial land plot with an area of 14.75 ha, bordered on the perimeter by vertical and inclined coastal protection.
The construction works were carried out in the period of November 2014 to March 2016 in severe climatic conditions with temperatures down to -50° C, wind loads with gusts up to 25 m/s and storms.
