By 2030, the cargo turnover of the Northern Sea Route will reach 35 million tons annually - the Ministry of Transport

All conditions have been created for the revival of the Northern Sea Route as one of the main transport arteries of the country. In 2013, the NSR cargo turnover amounted to 1 million 200 thousand tons, by 2030 it will reach 35 million tons annually. This was stated by the Deputy Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation Sergey Aristov during the II International Forum "Preservation and Sustainable Development of the Arctic: Legal Aspects" in St. Petersburg, the press service of the Ministry of Transport reported.

“According to our estimates, the Northern Sea Route will become the most demanded route between Europe and Asia,” Sergei Aristov recalled. He explained that this year the ministry has adjusted the main document - "Transport strategy until 2030", where special attention is paid to the development of regional systems, as well as the "Arctic block". In addition, in 2012, the so-called "Law on the Northern Sea Route" (No. 132-FZ) was adopted, and a coherent system of standards was created to ensure the safety of navigation in this region. In addition, an institution such as the Administration of the Northern Sea Route, which existed in Soviet times, has been revived. All this creates the necessary conditions for the development of the NSR - “the historically established national transport communication of the Russian Federation”.

The Deputy Minister of Transport also noted that for the development of this artery it is necessary to improve the port infrastructure, which, in fact, is happening. Ports in Khatanga, Dikson, Tiksi, Dudinka will be modernized, funds will be allocated for the modernization and development of Murmansk and Varandey, and it is planned to create new ports and logistics complexes 47 billion rubles).

The International Forum "Conservation and Sustainable Development of the Arctic: Legal Aspects" was held on November 13-14 in St. Petersburg at the Boris Yeltsin Presidential Library.
