The development of NSR will help reduce the prices of Kamchatka fish

The issues of transporting fish products from the Far East to the central part of the country along the Northern Sea Route were discussed at a meeting of the working group on the development of the NSR in Moscow, chaired by Denis Askinadze, Managing Director of the Far East and Baikal Region Development Fund, the press service of the government of Kamchatka Krai.

According to Nikolai Pegin, General Director of the Kamchatka Krai Development Corporation, a significant role in organizing the supply of Far Eastern fish products to the central regions of the country will be played by the introduction of the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky - Murmansk transport line connecting the Far East and the European part of Russia, and building a logistics infrastructure on this route.

“In September last year, the first steps were already taken in this direction - an Agreement was signed between the Governor of the Kamchatka Territory Vladimir Ilyukhin, FSUE“ Rosmorport ”and OJSC“ Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsk Commercial Sea Port ”on cooperation in the implementation of the project for the construction of a container terminal-hub in the sea the port of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, focused on transshipment of goods from the Asia-Pacific region to Europe along the Northern Sea Route. According to the existing plans, it is planned to increase the capacity in the port of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky in the near future, "Pegin said.

In the opinion of Denis Askinadze, Managing Director of the Far East and Baikal Region Development Fund, OJSC, the development of the Northern Sea Route will significantly reduce transport costs.

“If the trans-Siberian railway is completely unloaded, then the total volume of supplies may amount to about 1 million tons. The cost of delivery of fish products by rail is 13000 rubles. per ton. When delivering products along the Northern Sea Route, the cost can be about 9000 rubles. per ton. Moreover, the delivery time will be significantly reduced. Today, only 35% of fish from the Far Eastern region ends up in other regions of Russia, but the issue is not only in transportation, but also in prices. The disadvantages of railway transportation can become the advantages of transportation along the Northern Sea Route, ”Askinadze said.

The fact that the development of the Northern Sea Route is beneficial and necessary is also assured by the companies involved in transportation. According to representatives of the company FESCO, the transportation of goods, including fish products, through the Northern Sea Route is much cheaper and more competitive than transportation along the Trans-Siberian Railway.
