Mobile Seaports to Enter Market

Moscow Design Bureau Compas is bringing to market a mobile multifunctional seaport, according to Russian state corporation Rostec.

The complex consists of floating berths and pontoons of various profiles, has all necessary infrastructure including communication and monitoring systems as well as independent power supply system. The port can be assembled at a new location in 25-30 days.

Such developments today are non-existent anywhere else in the world,” says Vladimir Maslyuk, deputy general director of MKB Compas.

The uniqueness of our project lies in the project’s rate at which it can be deployed, disassembled and, if necessary, all the necessary port facilities moved to a new place. To assemble the port in a new place takes only 25 to 30 days,” Maslyuk said, adding that the cost of creating the port of modular elements is several times lower than in the construction of stationary objects, which allows for faster return on investment.

“The mobile port is fitted with fire fighting equipment, pumping units, etc”

A multifunctional port is a complete analog of a conventional port. It has everything necessary for mooring, loading and unloading of different vessels. The complex includes a berth for general cargoes with container terminals of up to 200 meters long, pontoons-refrigerators, elevators, oil storage facilities, power pontoons with wind generators, personnel premises.

Modifications are available with heliports, yacht pontoons and floatels.

The complex can operate in any water bodies with depth from 2 to 100 meters under moderate sea conditions (waves of up to 1.5 m high) including tidal waters with level difference of up to 6 m.

The complex has undergone all required tests. The interest to it has been expressed by a number of companies and BRICS countries, the statement says.

According to Rostec, the complex is both applicable to rivers and sea port usage.
