April 7, 2021

Yuri Trutnev, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation is in the Kamchatka Territory on a working visit. Together with Governor Vladimir Solodov, he examined the berths at the Mokhovaya Bay. Within the framework of the agreement concluded with the regional government, FSUE “Natsrybresurs” is carrying out the reconstruction of  berths No. 10, 11 and 12.

The project for the complex  reconstruction of Mokhovaya Bay facility is related to the investment plans of the” Free Port of Vladivostok” resident company, which plans to create a terminal for transshipment of fish products, including freezing facilities, container platforms and a storage site for refrigerated containers. The new facility should provide balanced service to fishing fleet in Avacha Bay. In addition, the new berths will make it possible to increase the volume of cargo transshipment, including within the framework of the Northern Sea Route. Fish from Kamchatka is shipped by the Northern Sea Route via the “Seroglazka” terminal  at present which has a limited throughput capacity.” Rosrybolovstvo” Federal Agency is studying the issues of organizing a permanent shipping line along the NSR to transport fish and fish products to the European part of Russia. The draft plan will include measures to develop port, logistics and ship repair infrastructure, as well as to reduce tariffs for transportation via the NSR. FSUE “Atomflot” is ready to operate up to four flights annually for this specific cargo from 2021.
