The first risk for modernized BAM is underload, the expert of Deloitte & Touche

The audit of a number of projects planned for the development of railways in the east of the Russian Federation, which Deloitte & Touche CIS (Deloitte & Touche CIS) carried out, allowed to formulate the main problem that causes concern of experts. This is the risk of underloading new capacity, said partner of the audit company Alexander Shakhov, speaking at a hearing on the audit results of the design documentation of the facilities of the "Eastern Railway Test Site"

The first risk for modernized BAM is underload, the expert of Deloitte & Touche
“The first risk that we would like to point out is peculiar to all events of Western BAM without exception - this is filling the cargo base,” he said.

According to him, the perspective loading of the western BAM can only be provided by Kuzbass and Elegest. "In the current economic situation, the achievement of the target freight traffic is still an open question, which requires additional elaboration," he stressed. The project for the development of the Elegest coal field with the adjacent infrastructure, which Ruslan Baisarov plans to implement, is shifting due to financing problems.

A. Shakhov believes that, in principle, Kuzbass can replace the flow of Elegest, but then decoupling the “exits” from Kuzbass will require additional funds from Russian Railways, “which must be properly incorporated into the investment budget.” The expert noted that he hopes that Russian Railways will be able to present an updated cargo base.

Also according to him, a monopoly can save money on the logistics of crushed stone delivery. “We saw too long a transport arm, almost 4 thousand km,” said the auditor. After coordinating this issue with Russian Railways, it was decided to take rubble from the nearest quarry, Interfax writes.

The audit company saw another reserve, "in optimizing the costs of recycling of cut soil," the organization of watches and other less significant costs. "For three objects that we considered in the audit process, the reserve reached 3 - 4 billion rubles depending on the construction of second tracks or double-track inserts. At the same time, we believe that if we extend the comments to all the objects of the eastern polygon, the reserve may be even higher, ”A. Shakhov concluded.

Deloitte and Touche CIS conducted an audit of the documentation for second-track construction projects in the Ikabya-Senatorsky, Kunerma-Delbichinda and Ulkan-Umbella sections of the East-Siberian Railway.

As previously reported, due to the modernization of the Baikal-Amur Mainline and the Trans-Siberian Railway, as well as some contiguities to them, it is planned to improve land transport links between Europe and Asia via the Russian Federation.

The total cost of the project was set at the level of 562 billion rubles, of which 302 billion rubles. planned to spend RZD, 150 billion rubles. the monopoly was to receive from the NWF and 110 billion rubles. - from the federal budget. Investments in the project are designed for transportation of additional 55 - 66 million tons of cargo to 2018

At the same time, Russian Railways claimed that, following the results of 2015, they saved 8,4 billion rubles.
