The volume of goods delivered to Kolyma depends directly on the value of gold
In autumn, another significant event took place in the life of the main cargo gate of the Magadan Region: two new portal cranes manufactured by Liebherr were put into operation. The carrying capacity of one of them is 124 tons, the second - 84. The new equipment is more economical in electricity consumption, eliminates the cost of repairing it for several years, while allowing unloading and loading of large-sized heavy equipment, which is currently used in the mining industry, which is the region's leading one. The technical renovation of the enterprise has been carried out only for the last year and a half. The cranes are not the first "new thing" of the seaport, and far from the last.
At the ceremony of commissioning new cranes, the governor of the region Vladimir Pechenyi noted that the modernization of the enterprise will be continued. Thus, in the federal target program for the development of the Far East and Transbaikalia, 1,2 billion rubles have been pledged for the reconstruction of the quay walls of the Magadan Commercial Sea Port (MMTP).
“After the reconstruction of the hydraulic structures, conditions will be created to increase the port's cargo turnover to 3 million tons. It is extremely important to develop the potential of this strategically important facility in anticipation of the development of new gold deposits and oil and gas shelf in the Sea of Okhotsk, ”said Vladimir Pechenyi.
In the 2014 year, the indicators are slightly reduced. According to Andrei Gorbov, general director of MMTP, last year the freight turnover growth was about 20 percent compared to 2012, in this - according to the results of 11 months the gap to the last year is 18 percent
“The decline in turnover is directly related to the stagnation of the mining industry. In particular, one of the major projects, the Matrosov Mine, slowed down the construction and changed the dates for the start of mining operations. Nevertheless, gold producers working on placer deposits conduct various preparatory works during the winter period - they repair equipment and deliver goods that are necessary as part of this activity. In addition, in December, before the upcoming New Year holidays, entrepreneurs will become more active, and therefore a slight increase in freight turnover is also possible. But I'm still not sure that by the end of December the figure of 1 will reach million tons, ”- this is the result of tonnage in the year 2014 sees Andrei Gorbov.
In pursuit of this goal, MMTP purchased a Komatsu-470 loader for loading solid fuel into Magadanenergo's dump trucks, which allowed it to increase the rate of coal delivery and reduce its losses during transshipment. Another advantage is that the work has ceased to depend on the weather: in strong winds, safety engineering prohibits the operation of cranes.
With a new ... keel!
As the head of the enterprise said, the technical update in the Magadan Commercial Sea Port is carried out within the framework of its investment program, designed for 2014-2017 years, with a financing volume of at least 1,7 billion rubles.
In addition to the Liebherr cranes with a total value of 10 million euros, last year the Kolyma Sea Gate got two reachstakers for 500 thousand euros each. Thus, in a year and a half, a major modernization of equipment took place directly at the berths and for work in the rear zones. Another important area where renewal is also taking place in the near future is the towing fleet. In many ports, it is an independent legal unit that provides services for mooring, otshvatovka vessels. In Magadan, traditionally, it was part of the port. But the port tugs today are also physically and morally obsolete. This was the reason for acquiring, albeit second-hand, but in good technical condition, the tugboat driver Sadko, which replaced the older ship, which requires considerable investments. Of course, this did not solve the problems with the fleet. The other day, Andrei Gorbov arrived at the seaport with a certificate of laying the keel.
“In November, the construction of the first unit was laid, which we expect to receive in Magadan before the onset of 2016,” he said. - According to the plan, in the next year and a half, two modern tugs of the same type will appear in the port, two and a half times more powerful and more technologically advanced. At the same time, they will be much more economical. The tugboats are being built by the Dutch company Damen at a Chinese shipyard in the city of Changde. The cost of each of them is more than 6 million euros. "
Training of Liebherr cranes was carried out in Europe. Today, a group is being created, so to speak, "Liebherr" from 10 operators. This will, if necessary, work in several shifts, will create a substitute for sick and sick leave. All of them will have the "Liebherr" certificate. A similar situation will be with tugs - people will start training in advance, in particular in Nakhodka, where there is a good simulator for practicing navigational skills of modern vessels.
The technical re-equipment of the sea port creates conditions for the optimization of production and management personnel. As Andrei Gorbov said, along with the fact that the total number of personnel has decreased, labor productivity for the year has increased no less than 20-25 percent.
And yet there are still painful points that need to be "treated" - these are tariffs. The fact is that the Magadan Sea Trade Port, being a monopolist, is subordinate to the Federal Tariff Service and cannot arbitrarily set the price for services subject to state regulation.
Improving the seaport does not stop. At the same time, that at the expense of federal funds, the reconstruction of 5 and 4 berths will be carried out, at its own expense, the company plans to carry out reconstruction and overhaul of hydroelectric facilities located in the neighborhood. And the nearest future is the introduction of IT technologies into production. At the moment, a contract has been concluded with the St. Petersburg firm and a project has been developed for the installation of an information system that takes into account all possible operations that are performed in the port. It is made on the platform 1С. The cost of the system along with the installation of the necessary equipment is about 15 million rubles. Commissioning will occur during the 2015 year. The system will most optimally organize the work of port mechanisms, electronically store and process information not only about the number of containers transported, for example, reach stackers, but also about its mileage, operation time, fuel consumption. In addition, it will allow external customers to see the output of a container from a vessel on-line. Within the framework of the program, it is possible to talk about the centralized export of goods from the port, that is, it will relieve the consignees from losing time in the queue to receive the same container and the dishonesty of the road carriers.
