Port of Ust-Luga

By 2018 the port capacity will amount to 180 mln tons

The multipurpose Ust-Luga merchant sea port is under construction in the Luga Bay of the Gulf of Finland. The capacity of the port is up to 180 mln tons of various cargoes per year.

Ust-Luga port is situated practically at the border of the Russian Federation and the European Union. It blends in with the transportation network of the Northwest region that plays a significant role in organization of transit shipments within the frames of the European transport infrastructure.

The deep water area of the port (17 m) together with the short ship channel (3.7 km) make Ust-Luga port the only Russian port on the Baltic Sea capable of admitting dry-cargo vessels with the deadweight of up to 75 thous. tons and liquid cargo carriers with the deadweight of up to 120 thous. tons. The second ship channel providing roundabout ship traffic will be built by 2010.

The year-round operation with a short ice channeling period (40 days only) is an indisputable competitive advantage of Ust-Luga port. Besides, an icebreaker assistance will be needed only in the heaviest frost. In ordinary winters in-channel operation can be carried out with an ice-class tug. A significant advantage of the new port is the fact that the cargo flows go to the port by-passing the extremely congested transport hub of Saint Petersburg. With direct involvement of the Ministry of transport of the Russian Federation and «Russian railways» JSC active work is already under way to reconstruct external approaches to the port, motorways and railway tracks connecting Ust-Luga port with major traffic arteries. Due to reserve territories Ust-Luga port can develop northward in the direction of Soika peninsula.

Ust-Luga port is being built as a universal port. The multipurpose terminals and operating zones will provide services of transshipment and additional handling of more than 20 categories of cargoes. Due to application of modern technologies and equipment the terminals will be able to meet competitive services terms.

There are eleven terminals currently operating in Ust-Luga port: a Coal Terminal, the Universal Cargo Terminal, a Sulphur Terminal, an Auto-Railway Ferry Complex complex, the actively developing Multipurpose Terminal «Yug-2», Container terminal, the Factor’ Timber Terminal, Terminal «New harbor», Oil Transshipment Terminal, Oil Products Transshipment Terminal, Tank farm «Ust-Luga».
