Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky can become a port hub of the Northern Sea Route

A universal modern transport hub (port-hub) may appear in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky for the development of transnational transit cargo transportation along the Northern Sea Route between Europe, the Asia-Pacific countries, the USA and Canada, said Ivan Kapralov, General Director of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky Commercial Sea Port ...

According to Kapralov, the port of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is located in close proximity to international shipping lines. This is the nearest port to the Northern Sea Route, equipped with the necessary infrastructure. The port's cargo turnover is 1,2 million tons of cargo per year with the estimated capacity of 3,7 million tons. The port area is about 32 hectares.

Kapralov noted that the creation of a hub on the basis of the existing port will require infrastructure modernization and serious investments, but "all this can be done in five years." He clarified that the project of the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatka Commercial Sea Port for the creation of a hub port in Kamchatka for the development of the Northern Sea Route implies the creation of almost 21 ha of additional bulk territory to accommodate storage terminals for containers and other cargo, as well as the placement of related services. Reconstruction of the entire mooring line is needed, including dredging to 13 m for receiving sea vessels of large displacement. In addition, it is necessary to provide new infrastructure facilities: a transport and logistics complex with a modern offshore handling terminal, sea terminals, centers for commercial and business services, and so on.
