Investment projects implemented by the Arkhangelsk Branch


     One of the main activities of the FSUE "Rosmorport" Arkhangelsk Branch is implementation of the federal investment programs, and the capital investment programs of the enterprise, which are aimed at the development of the federal port infrastructure facilities in the seaports of Arkhangelsk, Onega and Naryan-Mar.
     Acting as a client constructor since 2004 the Arkhangelsk Branch implemented the following investment projects to improve the port infrastructure and the quality of services provided to the ship owners, consigners, and other consumers in seaports.

     Arkhangelsk Seaport 

     In 2006 the construction of an administrative building for the Arkhangelsk Branch employees in Arkhangelsk Seaport was completed.



     In 2007 reconstruction of the vessel traffic system in Arkhangelsk Seaport was finished. The project featured the construction of a radio technical post No. 3 "Talagi" to enable radio locator control and navigation assistance to vessels going from/to the berths of the Talagi oil base. Besides, old equipment of the Arkhangelsk Seaport VTS was updated and changed, in order to further navigation safety in the VTS coverage area. Also in that year a diesel-oil autonomous heating boiler was installed to heat the building of the Iles radio station. It helped to create an autonomous heating system at the facility and to decrease the expenses of the Arkhangelsk Branch on heating services. Besides, a hangar for storage and painting of navigation devices was build in the seaport, with the aim to maintain and repair floating warning signs, and produce parts of coastal navigation signs. Besides, a coastal structure for parking of special crafts was reconstructed, as its second storey was build, where workshop for repairs of light optical devices and premises for technical personnel were arranged.
 

     In 2008 the electric power supply system of the Iles radio station was updated by installation of an electric power supply automation post and an emergency diesel generator. Implementation of the project helped to improve the electric reliability of the radio station. Also in that year a project for reconstruction of the navigation devices dispersed from the Economia transshipment area to the Talagi oil base berths was implemented, with the aim to provide for navigation safety of large tonnage vessels. The project included acquisition and installation of 20 warning aids to navigation and reconstruction of three navigation gates of lightning signs.
 

     In 2011 prefabricated structures were installed in the seaport in order to prepare and store small-sized boats, spare parts and engines designed for maintenance of navigation equipment.
 

     In 2012 in accordance with the requirements of the transport security legislation berths No. 142, No. 149-150, No. 153-154, as well as some facilities of the Arkhangelsk seaport VTS were equipped with video control systems, which enabled supervision over the movements of people and vehicles on the secured territory. Also in that year, with the aim to improve navigation safety, 30 floating navigation signs of new type were installed on the main fairway, 4 coastal navigation signs were reconstructed, and the light-optical equipment were updated with installation of solar power sources. Besides, new emergency power sources were installed at the Mudyug radio technical post No. 2 in order to enable emergency power supply of the radio technical post and the equipment of the marine safety facilities.

     In 2015 pursuant to Permit No. 29-52300-13-2015 of July 31, 2015issued by the Administration of the Municipal Entity “Primorye Municipal District” four WM-230 antenna-type towers with a height of 34 meters, the CV-051 antenna-type tower with a height of 40 meters and a tower with a height of 30 meters were put into operation. These antenna-type towers have been built within the reconstruction of GMDSS facilities on the approaches toward the seaport of Arkhangelsk. They are designed for placing radio navigational equipment to receive signals of distress, observe navigation safety calls and exchange information during search and rescue operations in sea areas of GMDSS A1 and A2; maintaining radio contacts with subscribers of landline networks to ensure navigation safety of vessels in GMDSS A1 and A2 sea areas and on the approaches toward them; coordinating search and rescue operations; and transmitting messages within the NAVTEX international system.

     Onega Seaport

     In 2012 in accordance with the requirements of the transport security legislation a video control system for supervision over movements of people and vehicles on the secured territory was installed at the cargo and passenger berths in Onega Seaport. Also in that year 10 new floating signs were installed, and light-optical equipment of coastal signs was updated in order to improve navigation safety in the water area of Onega Seaport.



     Naryan-Mar Seaport

     In 2010 the power supply and heating systems of the track maintenance department building in the seaport were modernized, due to the necessity to improve quality, reliability and safety of those systems.
 

     Sabetta Seaport

     In December 2016 pursuant to Rosmorrechflot Permit No. 89-RU89506000-NZH-39/41-2016 of December 09, 2016 the root part of the southeastern ice protection structure, which was earlier built in the seaport of Sabetta within the limits of an artificial plot of land, was put into operation. The facility is designed for protecting the territory of the seaport of Sabetta from the seasonal movement of ice and ensuring its all-year operation.
 


     In December 2018 pursuant to Rosmorrechflot Permit No. 89-RU89506000-NZH-39/47-2018 of December 21, 2018 the deepwater part of the southeastern and southwestern ice protection structures built in the seaport of Sabetta were put into operation. The facilities are designed for protecting the water area of the seaport of Sabetta from the seasonal movement of ice and ensure its all-year operation.
     In the same month pursuant to Rosmorrechflot Permit No. 89-RU89506000-NZH-39/41-2018 of December 11, 2018 the hydraulic facility “The Water Area of the Port (the Water Area of Auxiliary Berths)” with an area of 28.99 ha and the seabed levels of 12.3 meters at Berth No. 2, 13.2 meters at Berth No. 3 and eight meters at Berth No. 4 have been put into operation.

     At present in the framework of the federal target program "Development of the transport system of Russia (2010-2015)" and its own programs on development of port infrastructure facilities in the seaports of Arkhangelsk and Sabetta the Arkhangelsk Branch implements the following projects, which involve capital investments into the shore-based and port infrastructure facilities: 

     Arkhangelsk Seaport

     - project for the reconstruction of the Global Marine Distress and Safety System in the approaches to Arkhangelsk Seaport, comprising reconstruction of the coastal NAVTEX service station and of the network of shore-based stations in sea areas A1 and A2. This project will improve reliability of the GMDSS facilities and upgrade navigation safety in the corresponding sea areas. The project documentation has been submitted to state expertise. If a positive conclusion of the state expertise is received, the construction and installation works will begin in 2013-2014.

     - project for reconstruction of the vessel traffic system of Arkhangelsk Seaport in order to expand the coverage area of the automatic identification system. Implementation of this project will help to enhance navigation safety in the water area of Arkhangelsk Seaport. Recently the technical requirements for this project have been elaborated.

     Seaport near the Sabetta village

     - project for the construction of seaport facilities near the village of Sabetta in the Yamal peninsula, inclusing creation of a navigable approaching canal in the Ob mouth.
     Information on the course of the project is available in the section "Port Infrastructure Facilities".
