International exhibition "TRANSRUSSION - 2014" finishes its work in Moscow
This year, more than 65 leading companies in the transport and logistics industry took part in the exhibition. According to the organizers, more than 500 companies take part in the exhibition, the event will be attended by over 15 thousand visitors. The business program of the exhibition is no less intense than in previous years. In the first days of work, the 19th International Conference on Transport and Logistics "TransRussia" and a series of "round tables" were held.
In particular, at one of them there was a discussion of the development of a project of development of the Northern Sea Route, which is extremely important for a number of regions.
To date, effective work on the Northern Sea Route requires the development of the icebreaker fleet, said Alexander Olshevsky, head of the Northern Sea Route Administration, at the International Conference on Transport and Logistics “TransRussia-2014”.
He explained that now there are only four LU4 class vessels, and in severe ice conditions it is not possible to carry cargo by vessels that do not have an ice class. “Last year there were situations when ships stood idle for about four days, waiting for icebreaker assistance. If the traffic increases, the downtime will only increase, and the existing icebreakers will not keep up with their work. Therefore, it is necessary to build up and develop the icebreaker fleet in the water area of the Northern Sea Route, ”he concluded.
Nikolai Pegin, General Director of the Kamchatka Territory Development Corporation, said that the port of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky could become a full part of the international sea route, said TransRussia-2014 at the International Conference on Transport and Logistics.
According to him, for this, a major modernization of the port infrastructure will be carried out.
N. Pegin explained that in order to ensure the attractiveness of calling at the port of sea vessels, in addition to modernization, new facilities are also expected to be introduced, which will be relevant in the development of the Northern Transport Corridor.
“We are currently building a maritime passenger terminal and a new airport, which will provide an opportunity for the development of Arctic tourism. It is also planned to carry out modernization of the ship repair base, the construction of a logistics complex and the creation of a hub, which provides for the complex reconstruction and seismic amplification of the 2 km of the pier. This will allow accepting container ships up to 5 thousand TEU. Deep-water container terminals will also be put into operation, which will increase the port area to 53 ha, as well as the construction of a new sea terminal building, ”he said.
As a result of the modernization, the planned cargo turnover of the port will have to be on the order of 8 million tons per year with the prospect of an increase.
