The FSUE “Rosmorport” North-Western Basin Branch is carrying out scheduled dredging operations in the water area of the seaport of Ust Luga.

At present, the dredging is being done by FSUE “Rosmorport” own dredging equipment – the WAKA NAMI GO cutter-head (backhoe) dredger with the Usva barge being used to carry soil to the disposal area.

The Kronshlot suction hopper dredge and the Rabochaya trailing suction hold dredge of the North-Western Basin Branch are expected to arrive in July.

Under the project, in 2019 a total of 747.970 cubic meters of bottom soil are expected to be extracted and carried to the areas of disposal.

FSUE “Rosmorport” dredging equipment will remove a total of 247.970 thousand cubic meters of bottom soil.

Another 500 thousand cubic meters of bottom soil are expected to be extracted by using equipment of a contracting organization, which will be determined based on the results of a contest.

From July to December 2019 the branch is also planning to carry out maintenance dredging operations in the amount of 46.5 thousand cubic meters in order to keep project seabed levels in the water area and channels of the seaport of Ust Luga.
