The Murmansk Commercial Sea Port’s handling of cargo for Arctic projects will grow by 15% to 400,000 tonnes in 2019, the Port’s Director General Alexander Masko told a forum.

“In 2019, handling cargo for Arctic projects will grow at least to 400,000 tonnes against 347,000 tonnes in 2018,” he told the Logistics in the Arctic international forum.

In 2017, the port handled 326,000 tonnes of cargo for Arctic projects, he added.

The Murmansk Commercial Sea Port is among the city’s biggest enterprises and is Russia’s one of the biggest Arctic ports. The main cargo serviced at the port is coal. The port also handles cargo to the Polar ports (Sabetta, Dikson, Khatanga), loading and unloading of Russia’s nuclear-powered icebreaking LASH carrier and container ship Sevmorput, as well as supply vessels for oil and gas offshore projects.

The Logistics in the Arctic international conference is the region’s key platform, which focuses on technical and technological aspects of the Northern Sea Route, development of the Arctic logistics infrastructures, ports, aviation and rail routes. In 2019, the conference featured more than 100 top managers and specialists from Russian companies, working in the Arctic.
