Arkhangelsk

Geography

One of the key transshipment bases of the northern Sea route is the port of Arkhangelsk which is situated on the Dvina river near Dvina Bay, Bay of the White Sea. There are 70 acting berths in the port. The port is the most important point from where transportation from Arkhangelsk to Arctic take place. On the berths the cargo is processed and it is sent along the navigational arctic route in different directions. The port of Arkhangelsk has two areas where loading and discharging of goods take place. All the berths have general length of more than 3 km.

Shipment of goods from Arkhangelsk to the port locations of the Arctic can take place both on Ekonomiya and Bakaritsa. This areas differfrom each other due to different requirements to the vessels. Ekonomiya receives vessels , the lengthof which does not exceed 190 m, moreover, even when the length makes 175 m, the masters are to ask for permission for mooring. Allowed width is 30 m max, draught — 9 m max. Ekonomiya is situated on the left side of the river arm, distance from this area to the city makes 25 km.

All in all there are 7 berths in Ekonomiya, the length of which makes more than 1 km. Here different types of cargo are processed: containers, metals, wood, industrial equipment, bulk and construction cargos, as well as cellulose and cardboard. Delivery to Arkhangelsk for further transportation along the North sea route cane be made aither by air or road , later on our vessel takes the goods for transportation.

Ekonomiya works with extra-heavy cargoes — there are cranes on the berth which are able to lift 40 tons and equipment for loading containers. Covered warehouses of these berths have total area of more than 17 thousand square meters, open areas — more than 160 thousand sq.m.

The first berth is used for transshipment of containers, here terminal is installed, reception capacity of which allows to receive 75 thousand units (20-ft containers) annually. Transportation of containers to Arkhangelsk can be organized along the railway, in container lorries. Special loading elevators lift cargo up to 30 tons. Here the warehouse is equipped which occupies the area of 100 thousand sq.m. — you can place here more than 5500 bulk containers including refrigerators and even about 2000 containers which contain hazardous cargo.
