The project of construction of the seaport near the settlement Sabetta on the Yamal Peninsula being implemented by “Rosmorport” and “Yamal LNG” was recognized “The best solution in the sphere of logistics” within the prize “Formula of movement – 2018”. This year the jury considered about 50 applications. The winners of the prize were awarded in Moscow within the forum “Transport of Russia 2018”, as the press center of “Rosmorport” informs.
Construction of the seaport of Sabetta in the area of the settlement with the same name on the Yamal Peninsula began in 2012. The unique work was conducted “from the ground up” in the Arctic climate zone. Rosmorport fulfilled construction of federal property objects, which include sea and approach channels, water area of the port, ice protection structures, the navigation safety system, navigation equipment, administrative and technical buildings.
Dredging work could be fulfilled only during short time of summer navigation. During 6 navigation seasons about 70 million cubic meters of soil were extracted. Such significant amount of work during short time was not performed in any other Russian port. As a result, the sea channel with the length 49 kilometers, the approach channel with the length 6 kilometers and the port water area in 138 hectares were formed in Sabetta. The achieved depths allow 300-meter gas tankers of the “Christophe de Margerie” type to call in the port during the whole year round.
Protection of water area of the seaport from ice and waves impact is provided with the North-Western and the South-Eastern ice protection structures. They are designed to perceive the load of ice up to 220 tonnes per one square meter. Leading research institutes of the country conducted researching and modeling of different variants of construction of the ice protection structures in the ice basin. There are no analogous structures anywhere else in the world. Construction of the root part of the South-Eastern ice protection structure and the artificial land plot with the area 14.75 hectares formed inside it was completed in 2016. This March construction of a deepwater part of the South-Eastern ice protection structure and the North-Western ice protection structure was completed. Now within the project “Sabetta” Rosmorport is completing construction of buildings of the seaport administration and technical services. The monitoring and correcting station of GNSS GLONASS/GPS and VTS “Sabetta” is already used in the test mode (Satellite navigation systems and Vessel Traffic Service).
Creation of the alternative shipping route directly from the site of extracting and processing of natural gas of the South Tambey field with access to the Northern Sea Route for delivery of liquefied natural gas to trading partners in Europe and Asia is the main aim of the project.
