Moles and harbours

PLATONOVSKIY MOLE

Platonovsky mole is one of the first main moles of the port of Odesa. It was named after Platon Zubov, a favorite of Catherine II. The construction of the mole started in August 1794. The length of the berth was 176 m, the width – 13 m. it was renamed into Platon pier in 1803 by Alexander I.

In 1804 an engineer Ferster and later engineer Krug reconstructed Platonovsky Pier. In 1870 – 1872 by the project of Gartley the mole was set by the masonries of horizontal rows. Attached wooden parts deepened the depth at the berths on the right up to 7.3 m, on the left – 9.1 m, the length of the mole – 341, width – 45. 

 

At the end of XIX – in the early XX century at the bottom of Platonovsky Mole there was customs, mainly cargo-passenger vessels moored at the berths. 

 

During 50-s Platonovsky mole became unfit for handling modern vessels, its right side was used for ship mooring, and two berths of the left side handled only 30 thousand t per year. In 1960s according to the project of A. Kleyman Platonovsky Mole was transformed into a wide pier with 5 modern berths for handling large vessel.

 

In 1970 warehouse No. 10 was built on the mole. Railway spurs were put along the both sides of the mole. In 80s Vietnam terminal specialized in the export of general cargoes and import of grain was built on the mole. Currently the length of the mole at the right is 277 m, at the left – 394 m. The territory of the mole is operated by Novolog Ltd.
