DeloPorts gets OK to commission new berth

DeloPorts has received a permit from the Federal Agency for Sea and River Transport (Rosmorrechflot) to commission a new deep-water grain berth No. 40A.

The berth was successfully constructed within the framework of a large investment plan named “Reconstruction of the Grain Terminal with Increase in Cargo Turnover to 4 Million Tons”, jointly implemented with Rosmorport.

The construction process of the berth for the KSK Grain Terminal started in June 2019.

The works included reconstruction of the Rosmorport facilities (the formed territory and the wave barrier breakwater), and construction of the berthing facilities – carried out in an innovative way from both sides, from the sea and from the land, also including a significant amount of dredging works.

The main construction contractor was Novorostekhflot.

The construction of all the main facilities was efficiently and timely completed in January 2021. After that, all the necessary documents were sent to Rosmorrechflot to obtain permission to commission the berth.

Dredging operations in the water area are currently ongoing, said DeloPorts.

The total cost of the project was 1.6 billion rubles ($21 million), including 190 million spent on the reconstruction of federal facilities, and more than 1.4 billion rubles were spent on the construction of the berth.
