One of the main activities of the FSUE “Rosmorport” Vanino Branch is implementation of federal investment programs, as well as capital investment programs of FSUE “Rosmorport”, aimed at development of federal facilities of port infrastructure in the seaports of De-Kastri, Lazareva Cape, Nikolaevsk-on-Amur, Okhotsk, Sovetskaya Gavan, and Vanino.
In this aspect, since 2003 to the present time the Vanino Branch within implementation of the construction customer’s functions has completed the following investment projects aimed at improving port infrastructure and the quality of services rendered to ship owners, cargo shippers and other consumers in the seaports.
In 2014 the project for construction of facilities of GMDSS A1 sea area on approaches to the seaport of De-Kastri and VTS in the seaport of De-Kastri was completed. The project implementation allowed to implement the provisions of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974, in order to improve maritime safety in the seaport of De-Kastri water area, primarily, the safety of navigation of tankers with oil cargoes proceeding from roadsteads locations where vessels are loaded in the seaport of De-Kastri.
Seaport of Vanino
In 2011, the first stage of reconstruction of the vessel traffic management system in the seaport of Vanino aimed at increasing the seaport Vanino VTS coverage area, was performed. According to the results of completed construction and installation works, a radio technical post was constructed in the Muchka Bay, obsolete equipment and software were replaced, which allowed to increase the reliability of the system and include the Muchka Bay waters in the seaport of Vanino VTS coverage area.
In 2012, the second stage of reconstruction of vessel traffic management systems in the seaport of Vanino, aimed at increasing the seaport Vanino VTS coverage area, was performed. According to the results of completed construction and installation works, a radio technical post was constructed on Kekurnaya hill, which allowed to create a system of communication with vessels on distant approaches to the seaport of Vanino and extend the seaport of Vanino VTS area by covering the seaport of Sovetskaya Gavan.
In 2014, project of reconstruction of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System facilities in A1 and A2 sea areas on the approaches to the seaport of Vanino was completed. Implementation of the project, which was aimed at modernization of obsolete equipment, elimination of interference in functioning of the equipment in A1 sea area of the seaport of Vanino water area, expansion A2 sea area equipment operation area, enhanced the quality of GMDSS operation in the Tatar Strait.
Currently, within the implementation of the Federal target program “Development of Transport System of Russia (2010-2015)”, as well as own programs of capital investments for port infrastructure facilities development in the seaports of De-Kastri, Lazareva Cape, Nikolaevsk-on-Amur, Okhotsk, Sovetskaya Gavan, and Vanino, the Vanino Branch is implementing the following investment projects in the form of capital investment in coastal and port infrastructure facilities:
Seaport of Vanino
- project of reconstruction of “Vanino-Kholmsk” road-railway ferry complex coastal facilities in the seaport of Vanino. The project of reconstruction of the existing ferry complex envisages reconstruction of linkspan bridges located at berths No. 14 and No. 14a, which will allow receiving of design vessels of “CNF11CPD-LMPP-110/5” with the length of 131 m, width of 20.32 m, loaded draft of 6.6 m, design capacity of 30 railway cars or 71 automobiles, and passenger capacity of 150 people. The project implementation will significantly improve passenger and transport ferry connection of Sakhalin with the mainland, given the socio-economic importance of “Vanino-Kholmsk” ferry line to the island. In accordance with the requirements of the Russian environmental protection legislation, the project organization and the Vanino Branch have arranged public hearings for discussion of the project, including the materials on environmental impact. As a result of the discussions, the submitted materials received approval (minutes of public hearings of 15.03.2016 approved by Head of Vanino Municipal District). According to the established procedure, the drafted project documentation was submitted to the State Ecological Expertise, and received a positive conclusion of the State Ecological Expertise Board of 08.09.2016 approved by Order of Directorate of Rosprirodnadzor in the Far-Eastern Federal District No. 531 of 09.09.2016 stating its compliance to the requirements of the environmental protection legislation of the Russian Federation, as well as instructive and methodic documents in the field of environmental protection. At present, the project documentation and results of the engineering surveys are being prepared for submission to the State Expertise into Federal Autonomous Establishment “Glavgosexpertisa Rossii”.
In case positive conclusion of the State Expertise Board is received, and necessary finances are allocated, the construction and installation works are to start in 2018.
- project of reconstruction of berths No. 5, 6 and pier No. 1 intended for general cargo handling, needed due to significant deterioration of the said berthing hydraulic structures. The reconstruction project is supposed to increase the capacity of berths No. 5, 6, for cargo handling up to 1 million tons per year, and of pier No. 1 up to 200 thousand tons per year. Servicing of vessels 185.5 meters long, draft up to 10.1 meters and deadweight up to 25 thousand tons will be possible at berths No. 5 and 6, and vessels with the length of 130.3 meters, draft of 7.33 meters and deadweight of 6.7 thousand tons will be served at pier No. 1. Currently, the developed design documentation in the prescribed manner received positive conclusion of the State Ecological Expertise Committee, approved by the Far Eastern Federal District Department of Rosprirodnadzor Order No. 202 of 23.12.2010, and the State Expertise Committee Conclusion No. 1302-10/ GGE -6244/04 of 23.12.2010 approved by FSI “Glavgosekspertiza of Russia”. Start of construction and installation works, in case of allocation of federal budget funds investment required for the project implementation is scheduled for 2017.
- project of reconstruction of berth No. 8 intended for refrigerated and general cargo handling, the reason of which is its significant deterioration. The reconstruction project envisages increasing berth capacity to handling performance of 120 thousand tons of refrigerated cargo and 200 thousand tons of general cargo per year. Handling of vessels of “Sibir” or “Komsomolets Primorya” types with length up to 153 meters and loaded draft of up to 7.96 meters will be possible at the berth. Currently, the developed design documentation in the prescribed manner received positive conclusions of the State Ecological Expertise Committee, approved by the Far Eastern Federal District Department of Rosprirodnadzor Order No. 203 dated 27.03.2013, and the State Expertise Committee Conclusion No. 131-09 /GGE-0561/05 dated 10.06.2009 approved by FSI “Glavgosekspertiza of Russia” (the Khabarovsk Branch).

- project for construction of a transport loading and unloading complex on the northern shore of the Muchke Bay for handling coal in the framework of a joint investment project with OOO Sakha (Yakut) Transport Company (a limited liability company). As to the enterprise's obligations, the investment project envisages dredging works in the waters of berths No. 1 and No. 2 in Vanino Seaport in 2 stages: at the first stage, in the area of 28.7 hectares with bringing the seabed level to -19.3 metres, and at the second stage, in the area of 33.7 hectares with bringing the seabed level to -21.2 metres, in order to make navigation depths safe for approach and mooring of SN-163, SN-115, SN-70 and SN-40 design vessels. Besides, the enterprise is going to arrange anchorage with the area od 10.9 square metres and seabed level of 21 ~ -30 meters to ensure safe mooring of vessels, and install a light at the pier and 6 beacon buoys.
