Port Vysotsky offended Latvia

Increasing the volume of coal terminal and preparing for the anniversary

On the first Sunday of July in Russia marks Day of sea and river fleet. In Vyborg and Vyborg district, where three sea ports, consider it a holiday and celebrate a few thousand people.

Among them — the employees of the stevedoring company "Port Vysotsky" that meet a professional holiday of a record operating results and has exceeded a month to 450-500 thousand tonnes of Russian coal. In the first six months of 2013 turnover of enterprises increased by 82 percent and amounted to more than 2 million 340 thousand tons. This and many other on the eve of the holiday, we spoke with the general manager of the "Port Vysotsky" Vadim Pavlov.
— Today’s volume of transfer — is the natural result of a lot of work and a striking confirmation of the fact that the vector of development chosen by the company in 2005 and supported by the state — is correct. Together with Rosmorport we deliberately went for it. The funds of the federal program has been extensively renovated piers and carried dredgings, at the same time own investment company "Port Vysotsky" have been used to upgrade the inside of the port infrastructure, acquisition of modern technology and the development of new technologies transshipment. Result did not wait — Today in Vysotsk handled Panamax type vessels carrying up to 83 tons.

Growing turnover. According to our calculations, this year the company will ship about 5 million tons of export coal (in 2012 the figure was 3.3 million tons — SK). Expanded the geography of deliveries. If up until last year it was mainly Finland and Germany, now predominantly the United Kingdom, Belgium, the Netherlands. A in June for the first time a vessel, loaded in Vysotsk went to Italy. But the main result is that Russian Vysotsk has to compete with the major Baltic ports. Less than a year Wysocki port managed to take over some traffic (according to experts, it is one and a half to two million tons of coal), which previously ran through foreign ports — Ventspils and Riga 

— How much load Panamax vessels in a month?
— It is now 4 — 5. The bulk of coal transshipped at the port berths, usually up to 55 — 60 thousand tons, and reheating — the roads, the island of Hogland, a ship-hook capacity of 20 thousand tons. Recently we have shipped just two berths of the ship, each with a length of 230 meters.

— Vadim obviously made by Vysotsky port not going to stop?
— Indeed, 5,000,000 tons — it is not the limit. Our plan is to increase the turnover in 2015 to 7 million tonnes per year. To achieve this, the company developed an investment program aimed at updating equipment, construction of new storage facilities, the establishment of offshore transshipment complex.

This year has already acquired two new tugboat capacity of 4200 horsepower, built at the shipyard, "Dahmen" in Vietnam. They are much more powerful than existing in the port today, specially adapted for use with Panamax vessels. Tugs at the port of arrival is expected in late August.

In autumn we plan to put into operation two new hydraulic manipulator "Mantsinen120", in addition to the two already operating machines that are very well established in the unloading of rail cars loaded with coal. The plans for the next two years, a complete replacement of gantry cranes, purchase of new pipelines with magnetic coal cleaning, replenishment fleet of lift trucks.

— Increased production, for sure, will require an increase in the number of jobs. And to work on a new technique requires highly qualified personnel … — In this you are absolutely right. Today, we try to educate highly skilled professionals in their community. The Company operates a job training program in the field of "dockers" and "operator trucks." Also this year, LLC "Port Vysotsky" starts working closely with the Department "ports and freight terminals," State University of Maritime and River Transport (GUMRF) named after admiral SO Makarova. Our base will be held orientation sessions and practical training students makarovtsy.

Hopefully, after graduation, some of them come to work in our company, especially since many students vyborzhan. Usually good people go to the stable businesses where there are prospects, and Vysotsky port so it is.

In December 2013 we are going to mark the anniversary date. 30 years ago — December 22, 1983, a newly rebuilt pier was still portopunkta Visotsk Vyborg port, the first ship docked. It was the ship "Angarskles" deadweight 6000 tons 300, brought the steel pipes of the Federal Republic of Germany. According to project documents, the production capacity portopunkta Visotsk were then 400,000 tons of cargo a year. Now we are in the month of handling up to half a million tons!
Against this background, a small celebration, I think, very clearly positive dynamics of development not only of our port, but the whole industry. I take this opportunity to congratulate my colleagues, of sea and river fleet, with their professional holiday. I wish you all good health, success in work, prosperity and stability.
