Primorsky Universal Transhipment Complex LLC: Plans For Kamchatka Are Still On
“Andrei Sizov, Director General of Primorsky Universal Transhipment Complex LLC, in his letter sent to the Development Corporation of Kamchatka (DCK), suggests considering the possibility of holding negotiations between the representatives of the government  of Kamchatka Krai and DCK, during the Russian Investment Forum, which will be held in Sochi from February 12th to the 14th. The topic of these business meetings will be the construction of the container terminal for the Northern Sea Route on the eastern coast of the peninsula”, said Yulia Kharitonova, Director General of DCK.
During the previous business meetings and negotiations between top managers of the Primorsky Universal Transhipment Complex and  the government representatives of the region, discussions pertained to business and expert structures, the DCK, and various aspects of the implementation of the project in the field of maritime logistics were been discussed. The business initiative of the company from the Leningrad Region provides for the construction of three container terminals aimed at handling goods transported along the Northern Sea Route: on the shores of the Gulf of Finland, and in Murmansk and Kamchatka.
The project is expensive. According to preliminary estimates, investments in the creation of a terminal in Kamchatka will total about one billion dollars. The creation of a port-hub in the Leningrad Region has already begun.
Yulia Kharitonova reiterates that during the International Arctic Forum Last April in St. Petersburg, Kamchatka Development Corporation and the Primorsky Universal Transhipment Complex signed a cooperation agreement as part of the implementation of the “Kamchatka Container Terminal on the Northern Sea Route” project. The signing ceremony was attended by Vladimir Ilyukhin, the heads of the Kamchatka Krai, and Alexander Drozdenko, the Leningrad Region.
The Komsomolskaya Pravda, one of the main Russian daily newspapers, called the agreement between the DCK and the Primorsk company “historical”. The signed agreement opens a new page in the development of the Northern Sea Route as an all-season transport artery of international importance. The cooperation of the parties in the implementation of the project continues.
