Freight turnover in the Lena basin increased in 2021

Freight turnover in the Lena basin increased in 2021

The authorities of Yakutia and the Irkutsk region have summed up the results of the last navigation in the Lena basin. The growth in freight turnover amounted to 101% of the plan.

As EastRussia was informed in the press service of the Lena United River Shipping Company (LORP), this year the transportation was carried out often in difficult weather conditions: visibility was limited due to forest fires. But, despite this, they managed to deliver all the vital cargoes for the regions of the Far North. The delivery was completed in full.

However, the shipment of coal from the Dzhebariki-Khaya mine was not fully completed, compared to last year. This situation, according to the general director of LORP Sergei Larionov, appeared due to the lack of savings. For the complete delivery of fuel to the northern regions, for the first time, the logistics of delivering coal from the Zyryansk coal mine was changed.

In total, 227 vessels worked on the river, cargo was handled by 18 units of reloading equipment. More than 1,55 million tons of national economic goods were delivered to navigation, which is 101% of the planned volume.

Now, before the opening of ice crossings, cargo turnover is carried out with the help of an icebreaker. Until December 10, ships with liquefied oxygen tankers for health care will be held. The motor transport will be transported along the Zhatay-Tekhtyur-Zhatay route by the Kapitan Borodkin icebreaker, the Mechanic Kurchatov tugboat and the Zhatay-1 barge. The train makes one round trip per day. Navigation will end on December 10th.
