Photo exhibition dedicated to the 20th anniversary of FSUE “Rosmorport” opens on Gogolevsky Boulevard in Moscow

A photo exhibition dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the successful operation of FSUE “Rosmorport”, a backbone enterprise of the port industry, opened on June 26 on Gogolevsky Boulevard in Moscow. The exposition is timed to the Day of Workers of the Maritime and River Fleet. Moscow citizens and guests of the city can learn about modern vessels of FSUE “Rosmorport”, innovative solutions, see unique photos from the Arctic expeditions and feel pride in the national fleet.

The enterprise presents unique images at the exhibition, conveying the most significant achievements of almost 8.5 thousand employees of FSUE “Rosmorport”. Over a relatively short period of time for water transport, the enterprise has firmly taken its leading position in the maritime industry of the country, operating in 59 Russian seaports out of 63. FSUE “Rosmorport” is the customer of 21 projects of construction and reconstruction of port infrastructure facilities under the Comprehensive Plan for Modernization and Expansion of the Main Infrastructure.

The enterprise’s successfully completed projects include the construction of federal property facilities in the seaport of Sabetta, an approach channel to the water area of the seaport Passenger Port of Saint Petersburg, a railway ferry complex in Baltiysk, the seaport of Kaliningrad, commissioning of 7 terminals in the seaport of Sochi, dredging work at a new specialized terminal in Sukhodol Bay in Primorsky Territory. With the participation of FSUE “Rosmorport”, the Bronka transshipment complex in the seaport of Big Port of Saint Petersburg, the Kozmino special oil port in the seaport of Vostochny, the coal terminal of VaninoTransUgol JSC in the seaport of Vanino and the mineral fertilizer transshipment terminal of Ultramar LLC in the seaport of Ust-Luga were built. Their images can be seen at the exhibition.

Over 20 years, the enterprise has managed to organize its own modern service and auxiliary fleet - the total number of vessels as of today is 292 units. The nation's largest icebreaking flotilla, consisting of 35 icebreakers and ice-class tugboats, conducting thousands of operations on the ice every year, is a particular source of pride. The flagship of the enterprise's fleet, the world's largest and most powerful diesel-electric icebreaker Viktor Chernomyrdin, which began operations in the Gulf of Finland in 2020, leads the icebreaker fleet. Its propeller power is 25 MW. The vessel has an Icebreaker8 ice class and is capable of reaching speeds of up to 17.8 knots in clear water.

The dual-fuel green ferries Marshal Rokossovsky and General Chernyakhovsky are the centerpiece of the exhibition. It was FSUE “Rosmorport” that was the first in Russia to implement a project for the construction of innovative automobile and railway ferries capable of operating both on LNG and low-sulfur diesel fuel to ensure transport accessibility of the Kaliningrad Region. The Arc4 ice class allows the vessels to carry out transportation all year round without icebreaking assistance in ice up to 0.6 m thick. The Marshal Rokossovsky and the General Chernyakhovsky began operating on the Seaport of Ust-Luga – Seaport of Kaliningrad line in 2022 to ensure that some cargo traffic to the Kaliningrad Region was redirected to the ferry line due to restrictions on transit of some cargo to the region. Every month they carry up to 100 thousand tons of cargo, more than 1,150 cars, and 1,000 units of rolling equipment.

The exhibition on Gogolevsky Boulevard, designed to show the sustainability of the water transport industry, is open to the public and will run until 16 July. FSUE “Rosmorport” expresses its gratitude to the Moscow Directorate of Mass Events for their assistance in organizing the exposition, aimed at raising awareness of residents and guests of the capital about the importance of the maritime industry for the country's economy and life of citizens.
