In 2019 the cargo turnover on the Northern Sea Route should more 1.5 times grow – up to 30 million tonnes in comparison to 18 million tonnes of 2018. This information was given by the deputy director of Rosatom and the director for the Northern Sea Route Directorate of Rosatom Vyacheslav Ruksha.
“This year the cargo turnover will make about 18 million tonnes, next year we expect for already 30 million tonnes”, as Ruksha said at the meeting of the management of Rosatom with captains of Russian nuclear-powered icebreakers in December.
As we should remind, last week the Federation Council approved the law giving Rosatom functions of the infrastructural operator of the Northern Sea Route. According to the document, Rosatom receives functions on rendering of state services in the sphere of sea activity and management of state property on the area of the Northern Sea Route and adjoining territories. The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin set the task to increase the cargo traffic on the Northern Sea Route up to 80 million tonnes per year by 2024.
