Volga-Caspian Canal Operations in Full Swing

Since the beginning of April, the cutter suction dredger Petr Sablin has been busy dredging in the Volga-Caspian Marine Canal.

According to the FSUE Rosmorport activity schedule for dredging operations in 2017, the Astrakhan Branch expects to extract 1,1 mln cbm of dredged material from the shipping canal.

Before the beginning of this maintenance dredging project, the Astrakhan Branch Navigational and Hydrographic Support Service measured bottom level of the canal to determine dredging operations area borders and to calculate the volume of the soil being excavated.

In accordance with the established procedure the soil excavated during dredging operations is pumped through the floating and shore pipes to the specifically designated shallow pile located at a distance of 350 meters from the canal edge.

When finished, the dredging operations will raise the depth of Volga-Caspian Shipping Canal to 5.9 meters.
