18.10.2013In the Seaport of Sabetta on October 9, 2013 dredging of 2013 was completed and the last dredging fleet vessel recruited by the FSUE "Rosmorport" to perform work on the construction of the approach channel and the operating water area left the Seaport of Sabetta. In the near future summer navigation in the Seaport of Sabetta will be completed in connection with the change of weather conditions.
In the period from August to October 2013 for the construction of federal property in the Seaport of Sabetta the FSUE "Rosmorport" made dredging of nearly 9.4 million m3 of soil seized, and as the result a technological channel of the seaport was formed as well as the operating water area of the subsidiary berths with the bottom marks of -8 to -13.2 meters, designed to receive large vessels with supplies for the construction of the liquid natural gas plant.
Since the start of works in 2012 in the seaport the total volume of dredging is almost 10.9 million m3 of soil seized, accounting for 14% of the total volume of work planned by the project for the period from 2012 to 2016.
In order to control the quality of dredging in the water area of the seaport the enterprise has performed the shooting of the bottom configuration of the producing areas of dredging in the water area of the seaport in the area of 2.5 km2, which confirmed the results of the works well done.
It should be noted that in addition to dredging in the seaport, the forces of the Arkhangelsk Branch pilot service in the summer 2013 navigation counseled masters of vessels that delivered to the Seaport of Sabetta loads for the construction of port infrastructure facilities for safe navigation of vessels.
In the period from August to October 2013 advisors to shipmasters of the Arkhangelsk Branch pilot service assisted in navigation 50 masters of vessels made calls at the Seaport of Sabetta. At present, the advisors to shipmasters of the branch are continuing their work on counseling masters of vessels making calls to the seaport, until the completion of the navigation of vessels in the Seaport of Sabetta of winter 2013-2014.
