2. Terms of application of harbor dues charged by FSUE “Rosmorport” from vessels in the seaport of Sochi

 

     Terms of application of harbor dues in the seaport of Sochi are established by Order No. 223/16 of the FAS of Russia dated 10.03.2016 with the specifications established by Order No. 711/16 of the FTS of Russia dated 06.06.2016.

     Harbor dues rates are applied for payments for services provided by the FSUE “Rosmorport” Sochi Branch, for the use of the certain seaport infrastructure facilities, ensuring safety of navigation in seaport of Sochi, and approaches to them.

     Harbor dues are paid by Russian and foreign ship owners or their authorized persons for vessels port calls at the seaports of Sochi, departure from the seaports, as well as its transiting through the corresponding seaports.

     Harbor dues in the seaports of Sochi are established for Russian vessels navigating under the state flag of the Russian Federation (hereinafter - Russian vessels) and vessels navigating under the flags of foreign states (hereinafter - foreign vessels).

     Harbor dues rates in the seaports of Sochi are established for Russian vessels in foreign traffic and foreign vessels, as well as for Russian vessels in coastal navigation, and are differentiated according to the types of vessels:

  • all vessels except ro-ro, floating, container and bulk vessels;
  • ro-ro, floating, container vessels;
  • bulk vessels.

     Foreign vessels carrying out coastal voyages, pay harbor dues at the rates established for foreign vessels in foreign traffic.

     Flag and type of vessel are determined by the vessel's documents.

     For the purposes of applying the harbor dues rates, flag of tug and tow is determined by the flag on the self-propelled part.

     Harbor dues rates are established in rubles.

     Harbor dues rates are established per unit of gross tonnage indicated in the vessel’s Rating Certificate.

     Calculation of harbor dues for tankers with isolated ballast tanks is made without taking into account gross tonnage of isolated ballast tanks indicated in Rating Certificate.

     If the Measurement Certificate says nothing about the gross tonnage of the isolated ballast tanks, and consequently, the decreased gross tonnage of the tanker, then harbor dues are counted with a 0,9 ratio. 
     In order to count harbor dues, a passenger vessel with gross tonnage more than 40000 GT is considered equal to gross tonnage of 40000 GT. 
     Harbor dues for vessels without Measurement Certificates are estimated by a relative tonnage in cubic meters which is equal to product of three numbers – maximum length, maximum width, and maximum board height of the vessel, and with coefficient 0.35.

     When calling at the seaport of Sochi, harbor dues are paid according to the voyage on which the vessel entered the seaport. When vessel departures from the seaport of Sochi, harbor dues are paid according to the voyage on which the vessel departed from the corresponding seaport.

     Vessel calling at the seaport of Sochi without cargo pay harbor dues according to voyage for carrying out of which the vessel called at the seaport. Vessel departing from the seaport of Sochi pay harbor dues according to voyage on which the vessel entered the seaport.

     Vessel calling at the seaports of Sochi without performing cargo and passenger operations, and also transiting through the corresponding seaport water area, pay harbor dues according to rates of the current voyage (coastal or foreign).

     Harbor dues rates (except for pilotage dues and navigation dues regarding vessel traffic system (hereinafter – VTS)) for vessels calling at the seaports of Sochi without carrying out operation with cargo and servicing passengers, except for cases stipulated in paragraphs 1.12, 1.14 of FTS of Russia Order No. 223/16 dated 10.03.2016, are applied with coefficient 0.5.

     Gross tonnage of tug and tows, convoys and other composite floating objects (including rafts) when calculating dues (except ecological dues) is defined as the sum of gross tonnage of all the constituent elements of floating objects. If the separate objects of tug and tow have a different type, harbor dues are calculated separately for each part of the composite floating object with the use of rates for the corresponding type. In the absence of gross tonnage of floating objects, calculation is made according to conditional volumetric capacity of floating objects, estimated in cubic meters, by multiplying three vessel's dimensions - overall length, overall breadth and depth overall indicated in vessel's documents, with coefficient 0.35.

     Harbor dues rates are not applied to the following vessels:

  • training, simulation training vessels and training and production vessels used for educational activities;
  • vessels carrying out government supervisory and control functions;
  • warships (including warships under foreign flags) and military support vessels;
