TITAN GROUP HAS INVESTED OVER 6.5 MILLION RUBLES IN OPERATIONAL DREDGING AT VERKHNETOEMSKY DISTRICT
Titan Group has carried out operational dredging at Verkhnetoemsky district. The designed depth has been restored near the shipping terminal Bolshaya Svaga and in the area of the passenger crossing at the Northern Dvina.
In general it took 10 days to complete the works. In the hollow Bolshaya Svaga the depth of the dredged section increased 1 km, the width – 36 m, the depth of the waterway after dredging reached 2.9 m. The same passage draught was achieved in the area of the ferry crossing.
Titan Group has been engaged in cleaning of the water ways in Verkhnetoemsky district for three years.
The annual volume of investments in dredging is over 6.5 million rubles.
The main target is to improve the navigation situation for own needs and for the population needs. Every summer the water level in the rivers of Verkhnetoemsky district significantly drops, sand spits and isles grow. A threat to lose connection with the mainland occurs for the settlements and for the river companies - to strand their tugboats.
The dredging is carried out under the supervision of specialists from the holding’s own logistic company – LLC White Sea Floating Company (BSK), which needs a stable depth of the shipping channel.
Minimal figures of water levels for BSK safe work are 1.7 m. At lower figures the timber shipping volumes will have to be reduced or the navigation will have to be stopped until the end of low flow.
As they indicate at LLC White Sea Floating Company owing to dredging the navigation has not been discontinued for the last years.
Let us remind the own fleet of the company now counts 20 tugboats, 4 floating cranes and 26 barges.
