DeloPorts, a stevedore asset of the largest transport and logistics holding in Russia, Delo Group, received a permit from the Federal Agency for Sea and River Transport (Rosmorrechflot) to commission a new deep-water grain berth No. 40A, constructed within the framework of a large investment project "Reconstruction of the grain terminal with an increase in cargo turnover to 4 million tons", implemented jointly with Rosmorport. The permit was received by the company in March 2021.
The construction process of the berth for the KSK Grain Terminal started in June 2019. It included the reconstruction of the Rosmorport facilities (the formed territory and the wave barrier breakwater), and the construction of the berthing facilities, which was carried out in an innovative way from both sides, from the sea and from the land, with dredging of the water area. The main construction contractor was Novorostekhflot.
The construction of all the main facilities was efficiently and timely completed in January 2021. After that, all the necessary documents were sent to Rosmorrechflot to obtain permission to commission the berth. Dredging of the water area is ongoing.
The total cost of the project was 1.6 billion rubles, including 190 million spent on the reconstruction of federal facilities, and more than 1.4 billion rubles were spent on the construction of the berth.
According to the company’s estimates, the first vessel will be received at the renewed KSK Grain Terminal in July 2021.
Igor Yakovenko, Chief Executive Officer of DeloPorts, said: “The main stage of reconstruction of KSK has been completed. The decision of Rosmorrechflot to allow the commissioning of berth № 40A, built on schedule in difficult conditions, testifies to the high standards of work quality and responsibility, demonstrated by the DeloPorts team, our partners from Rosmorport and contractors from Novorostekhflot”.
