Rosatom plans to carry fish from the Far East along the Northern Sea Route
Rosatom plans to make the Northern Sea Route (SMP) a competitor of Russian Railways for exporting fish from the Far East. To do this, they want to use the lighter "Sevmorput". The project can start in the third quarter of this year.
As the Kommersant, the most promising could be the transportation of fish from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky to Murmansk. This will reduce transport costs compared to the railway. The reloading of the lighter carrier with other cargoes from the Far East is being worked out. Consultations on the project are currently underway, since Rosatom does not have an accurate idea of the financial and infrastructural component.
The Federal Agency for Fishery announced that a working group was set up at the agency’s site to organize a permanent line for transporting fish products through the NSR. Its meeting should take place in February. The agency believes that the project will increase the volume, improve product quality, reduce logistics costs and the number of intermediaries. According to preliminary calculations, if the lighter carrier will work for five months a year, then 50-70 thousand tons of fish can be transported to central Russia.
