Performance of Design Work for Reconstruction of the Berths Nos 1-4 and Dredging of the Water Area, Approach Channel for Development of the Coal Handling Terminal in the Port of Visotsk
In accordance with Stringent Regulations the Port of Visotsk receives and accommodates vessels not exceeding the following dimensions:
- length 195m;
- draft 9.3m.
After reconstruction of the Berths Nos 1-4, moles heads in the harbor waters and dredging of water area and Approach Channel, the Commercial Sea Port of Visotsk can receive the bulk carriers of:
- length 178m;
- breadth 28m;
- draft 10.5m.
Design seabed level in the Channel straight and adjacent berth water area will be of 12.7 m. The Channel width is 105 m (in the moles heads area is 133.5 m).
The reconstruction of the Approach Channel and adjacent water area is carried out as a whole and includes the reconstruction of navigation aids.
According to simulation data the design dimensions of the Approach Channel and adjacent water area of the berths Nos 1-4 allow to receive, with certain wind limits and provided tug service, target bulk carriers with the following dimensions:
- length 199.95 m;
- breadth 32.2m.
