By order of the Government of Russia dated January 22, 2021 No. 109-r, the boundaries of the Dikson seaport have been adjusted. This was reported by the press service of FSUE “Rosmorport”.
The adjustments are related to the inclusion in its boundaries of one water plot and one land plot located in the Yenisei Bayand intended for positioning the offshore coal terminal facilities. It is a part of the development of the Syradasai coal deposit in the Taimyr Dolgano-Nenetsky district of the Krasnoyarsk Territory.
The explored reserves of the Syradasay deposit amount to almost 5.7 billion tons of coal of grades G (gas), Zh (fatty), K (coke) and OS (lean-caking). The deposit has one of the largest reserves of valuable coking coal.
The coal mined at the field will be transported by industrial railway to a new coal terminal in Dikson seaport, from where it will be exported to the countries of Southeast Asia along the Northern Sea Route.
At the first stage of development of the coal terminal project the planned volume of cargo transshipment will be 5 million tons per year, and within the next 3-4 years it should double. The length of the quay wall of the coal terminal will be 500 meters, and the depth at the cordon of the quay wall – up to 15.5 meters which will allow to proceed vessels of large gross tonnage.
