TITAN GROUP INCREASES SHIPPING VOLUMES BY WATER TRANSPORT
On May 22 LLC “White Sea Floating Company”, a logistic enterprise of Titan Holding, successfully completed its rafting program. The company performed delivery to CJSC “Sawmill 25” and JSC “Arkhangelsk PPM” in the amount of 27 rafts (over 315 thousand m3 timber), namely 8 rafts to APPM and 19 rafts to the sawmill raft parking.
All these rafts had been prefabricated by TG Verkhnetoemskoe subdivision at the raft pre-fab areas Bolshaya Svaga and Erogodskaya (Tacha).
During the season 2022, BSK, being the largest shipping enterprise in Arkhangelsk region, carries out pulp floating by the Northern Dvina and the Vychegda rivers to other forest users.
Currently the logistic company has completed its raft program and ships timber by barges. Thus, the first barge with timber came to JSC "Arkhangelsk PPM" in early May on Arkhangelsk seaport opening. In total it is planned to ship about 1 million m3 timber logged by TG companies by river this year.
They accentuated in the holding that today timber floating is the most environmental and cost saving type of pulp shipping, which allows transporting out logged timber from remote districts with poor accessibility.
Titan Group delivers about 4 million m3 pulp to JSC "Arkhangelsk PPM" annually. Since 2019 the holding has been actively developing its new direction of business – “shipbuilding and ship repairing”. BSK base has modernized over 20 vessels, floating cranes and barges. Today BSK possesses all the necessary equipment to perform quality ship repairing and shipbuilding. 250 highly qualified specialists work there. The company owns over 100 units of fleet (tugboats, barges, floating cranes).
