FSUE “Rosmorport” completes the second stage of dredging in the water area of the coal complex in Muchke Bay

FSUE “Rosmorport” has completed the second stage of dredging work aimed at developing the water area of the coal transport and transshipment complex in Muchke Bay in the seaport of Vanino. The complex is being built as part of the Comprehensive Plan for Modernization and Expansion of the Main Infrastructure (CPMI).

Rosmorrechflot permit for commissioning of the second stage facilities was obtained on December 20, 2023.

The construction of the complex was initiated by VaninoTransUgol, JSC in order to transport coking coal from the Yakutsk deposits. Dredging work was carried out by FSUE “Rosmorport” in the operational water area of berths No. 1 and No. 2 of the transshipment complex and in the water area of the traffic circle in two stages. The enterprise has attracted 3 units of its own dredging and auxiliary fleet to perform the works. The total area covered by the works amounted to more than 30 hectares. As a result of dredging, a draft of 17.1 m was achieved to allow safe movement of vessels of the CH-163 type.

The works will result in making the complex one of the largest sea coal terminals in Russia - its capacity will increase to 24 million tons per year. Further development of the terminal is planned by the investor until 2030.

Construction of a transport and transshipment complex for coal transshipment, including federal property facilities (underwater hydraulic structures, navigation safety facilities) on the northern shore of Muchke Bay in the seaport of Vanino (Khabarovsk Territory) is being carried out as part of the federal project “Seaports of Russia” of CPMI for the period up to 2024. The first stage of the transshipment complex with a capacity of up to 12 million tons per year was commissioned in 2020.

The modern technological equipment of the complex, which is equipped with a powerful dust control plant, includes overflow stations, car dumpers, conveyor galleries and ship loading machines. The process of environmentally friendly coal transshipment is based on a unified closed loading cycle.
