"Ukrrechflot" works out starting-up of a river container line project

Joint-stock navigable company "Ukrrechflot", the largest sea and river carrier of Ukraine, works out starting-up of a river container line project working in the system of mixed transportations (river-sea). Aim of the project is redirection of the container goods traffics moving to large internal centres of Ukraine (Dnepropetrovsk, Donetsk), from overland to a sailing charter. The sea shoulder of the route will pass through container ports of Ukraine (Odesa, Illyichevsk), with a linking-up of the port of Constantza. Let’s remind, the port administration of Constantza put forward the project the similar route draft project- container transportations to the port by sea transport, with redirection to river transport for transportation across Danube. One of branches of this route was a shoulder of transportations to Ukraine - through one of the river ports and further by rail. The alternative which has been proposed by "Ukrrechflotom", reduces expenses for an additional river transportation and excludes a railroad tariff. Container transportation to the internal industrial centres of Ukraine gravitating to the river system of Dnepr, allows to create the system of water carriages "from door to door". The approximate term of container route start-up across Dnepr – the summer 2010


Ukraine increases level of the state financial support of the system of internal water carriages

During the current year Ukraine has twice increased the volume of state budgetary financing directed to maintenance of an exploitative-safe condition of navigable sluices and internal waterways. It is provided by the state budget for the current year. The corresponding articles are in the target state program «Maintenance of an exploitation-safe condition of navigable sluices, internal waterways», the more common state program stated within the limits of the program «Development of the international transport corridors national network in Ukraine for 2006-2010». Let’s remind, last instruction provided state financing allocation for modernization of the internal waterways (about $15 million for 5-year period), and also for capital repairs of the corresponding infrastructure objects ($11 million accordingly). In its turn the Ministry of Ukraine initiated attraction of river transit by granting of discounts for lock gathering (cargo traffic - the Belarus potash fertilizers across Dnepr headed for the ports of the Nikolaev sea region; perspective volume – to 1 million tons per year). During the current year the volume of state financing for maintenance of the system of the internal water carriages will make 53,65 million UAH+ (about $7 million). According to the Ministry of transport and communications of Ukraine, this volume exceeds twice the last year’s investments volume. Thus, within 2009 it was possible to invest into this field 25,317 million UAH ($3 million) of state budgetary funds at the plan in 31,658 million UAH ($4 million). According to the Ministry of transport and communications, all means allocated during the current year will be directed to maintenance of the internal waterways, navigable sluices (including their capital repairs), and also to repair of the fleet and coastal objects. Construction of a specialized fleet (icebreaking) is excluded from the program of the year, provided earlier within the limits of state budgetary financing. This point repeatedly has been mentioned in the projects of state development of a sailing charter, and remains unfinished. RZD-PARTNER
