Glavgosexpertiza approved documentation under Ultramar’s project on construction of facilities for transshipment of mineral fertilizers in Ust-Luga
Glavgosexpertiza (Russia's Main Department of State Expertise) says that its experts have considered and approved the design and estimate documentation for creation of an operation water area and waterways as well as land reclamation for construction of industrial and logistics complex for storage and transshipment of mineral fertilizers including storage facilities and railway infrastructure at the Commercial Sea Port of Ust-Luga.
The terminal is to be built within the territory of the port, within Vistino settlement of the Leningrad Region’s Kingisepp Municipal District, by Ultramar LLC, Russia’s largest forwarder of mineral fertilizers in containers. Loose mineral fertilizers will be unloaded from railcars, stored in closed warehouses and delivered by conveyors to ships.
The project foresees land reclamation through mortar sand dumping in the coastal area of the Gulf of Finland to create a plot of land covering 4.13 hectares as well as creation of a pile foundation for a 393.3-meter long front berth and coast protection structures of vertical and sloping type with a total length of 198.4 meters.
Besides, the project implies conducting of dredging and other works on creation of operational waters and maneuvering zones as well as their equipment with aids to navigation.
The newly created water area and coast protection facilities will let deliver construction materials and equipment for construction of the terminal including its berths. The facilities can also be used by laid-up ships.
