FSUE Rosmorport is building up its own dredging fleet to decrease the expenses for contracting, said Andrey Lavrishchev, General Director of FSUE Rosmorport, at the Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging Congress yesterday.
The company is set to raise the share of works performed by its own equipment to 70%, according to Lavrishchev.
The share of dredging works performed by Rosmorport has already reached 65%.
When speaking at the Congress about ‘promising projects of sea port infrastructure development including construction of hydraulic engineering structures and dredging’, Lavrishchev said that the scope of repair dredging performed by the company in 2017 totaled 9.5 million m³ of material.
To ensure synchronized development of ports and approaches, the Russian Federation’s Government prepared road-maps for the development of seaports till 2020 (with a possibility of extension till 2030). They also cover the development of railway and highway approaches to the ports.
