Aids to navigation handed over to the Azovo-Chernomorsky Basin Branch
Under Resolution No 1735-r issued by Russia’s Federal State Property Agency Territorial Administration in the Rostov region on August 11, 2017 three aids to navigation – a marine light and two fire towers have been assigned to FSUE “Rosmorport” on the basis of the right of economic management, and handed over to the directorate of the Azovo-Chernomorsky Basin Branch pursuant to FSUE “Rosmorport” Order No 333 of August 28, 2017.
The marine light is located in the Temryuk district six kilometers northwest from the settlement of Volna. It was built in 1984 and is designed for determining the location of a vessel to pass to the Strait of Kerch from the south to the north. The height from the foot is eight meters. Due to the fact that the marine light is located weald, the fire height is 72 meters of the sub-sea. The visibility distance at night is seven nautical miles.
Fire towers located in the Temryuk district near the Novorossiysk – Strait of Kerch motor road were built in 1974 and formed a range designed for navigation on the straight-line section of the Yenikalsky elbow of the Kerch-Yenikalsky Canal in the direction of 246,8º – 66,8º. The range formed by fire towers is the return one to the range of the Kamysh-Burundsky and Churubashsky lighthouses.
The height of the fire tower (the front leading mark) from the foot is 21 meters and the height of the fire tower (the rear leading mark) is 43 meters.
Due to the fact that fire towers are located weald, the height of fire towers is 22 meters sub-sea (the fire tower of the front leading mark) and 60 meters (the fire tower of the back leading mark). The visibility distance at night is 18 nautical knots (the fire tower of the front leading mark) and 25 nautical knots (the fire tower of the back leading mark).
The Hydrographic Office of Russia’s Black Sea had carried out their operation and maintenance before these facilities were assigned to FSUE “Rosmorport”.
The facilities are in satisfactory technical condition.
