On Iturup completed the construction of port "Kurilsky"
Construction of the Kurilskiy port station on the island. Iturup (middle Kuriles) with a total cost of 1,4 billion rubles, carried out within the framework of the FTP "Kuriles", has ended. It includes a deep-water pier, a sea terminal with a capacity of 50 passengers per shift, and treatment facilities with an underwater sea outlet. Bank protection, arrangement of the territory with utilities and improvement have been carried out in the port, "the press service of the Sakhalin Directorate of the Kuril Program reported.
A new passenger-and-freight pier at the Kurilsk port point is of a flushing type, that is, installed on columns to eliminate a large ice load. Its dimensions are: length - 147,5 m, width - 26 m. At the port point, six berths were rebuilt, replacing the wooden Japanese buildings of the beginning of the last century.
In Kitov Bay, this is the only pier to which large vessels can moor, including the passenger ship “Igor Farkhutdinov”, which made it possible to completely abandon cargo transshipment and passenger service in the roadstead. If earlier loading or unloading could last several days, now it is measured in hours.
"The positive effect of this was felt, first of all, by the inhabitants of the island of Iturup and enterprises of the fishing industry, supplying products to the regions of Russia and the countries of the Asia-Pacific region," the report says.
