FSUE “Rosmorport” sums up the results for May 2020

In May 2020 FSUE “Rosmorport” income amounted to 2.1 billion Rubles, including 278.5 million Rubles of rent revenues and 295 million Rubles of other types of activity revenues.

Throughout the report period the number of serviced vessels has increased by 4% as comparing with the last month index and amounted to 11,500 vessels: 5,900 vessels of foreign navigation (minus 1%) and 5,600 coastal voyage vessels (plus 11%). The increase in servicing coastal voyage vessels is conditioned by the growth of cargo turnover in the seaport of Arkhangelsk, Murmansk, Rostov-on-Don, Azov, Kavkaz, Nikolayevsk-on-Amur and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.

Last month the FSUE “Rosmorport” dredging fleet carried out 10% of the 2020 plan. The dredging operations continue on the Kaliningrad Seaway Canal, in the seaports of Makhachkala, Tuapse, Temryuk, Kavkaz, Taganrog, Korsakov, as well as on the Volgo-Caspian Marine Shipping Canal. The Sommers dredger started dredging operations in the water area of the Caspian Sea under a project for developing the oil and gas deposit. The works began on the main navigable channel of the seaport of Arkhangelsk.

Within compensatory measures taken by the enterprise due to the damage caused to water bioresources, over 190,500 samples of young Atlantic salmon, Ladoga trout and Pacific salmon have been released throughout the reporting period for a total amount of 77,5 million Rubles.

The azimuth tug of ASD TUG Ice-Arc5 Project keel laying ceremony was held at the Onego Shipyard in the middle of May. The craft, which is being built for the FSUE “Rosmorport” Arkhangelsk Branch, will have strengthened scantlings and maneuverability, sea-keeping performances and towing characteristics that conform to the Register of Shipping requirements.

The FSUE “Rosmorport” acceptance committee worked on May 12-30, 2020 to receive the facility “Construction, Retrofitting and Upgrading of Navigation Safety Facilities in the Seaports of the Crimea Peninsula. The Reconstruction of Navigation Safety Systems in the Seaport of Feodosia” and made a positive assessment for its further putting into operation.
