Client: CJSC Eurosib SPb-TS

Project schedule: 2019-2020

Project brief

Eurosib is the operator of the Eurosib-Terminal-Novosibirsk terminal and logistics centre (TLC) at Inya-Vostochnaya station. The terminal entered operation in 2008, and has developed into a crucial hub for the container traffic logistics network, connecting the most important transport arteries of Siberia with the ports of the Far East, the North-West, and other distribution centres.

Container transport is one of the priority development areas for Eurosib. As part of implementing its strategy, the company is investing in the reconstruction of this backbone terminal in Novosibirsk and the purchase of container railcars.

The Eurosib-Terminal-Novosibirsk terminal

Work completed to date

Morstroytechnology has completed the following tasks for this facility:

  • concept for the terminal
  • engineering survey work
  • project design and cost estimating documentation
  • working documentation is currently being draughted.

Main project characteristics

Work on the project has been carried out in constant cooperation with the client. As part of the pre-design studies, eight options for technological schemes which would increase the terminal's capacity to 250,000 TEUs were initially proposed, after which the two most promising options were worked out in more detail.

Solutions were also proposed that would deliver a phased increase in the terminal's capacity (150,000, 180,000, 250,000 TEUs per year).

Technical cross-sections of options 1-8 for preliminary consideration

The client took the implementation of the development stage for the terminal's processing capacity to 180,000 TEUs in 2020-2021 as a starting point, with the aspiration to make subsequent investment to increase processing capacity to 250,000 TEUs per year.

An important requirement in the development of the project was the requirement to maintain container handling volumes throughout the reconstruction period.

Key feature of the project

The reconstruction work must be carried out in the conditions of an operating enterprise, without reducing current turnover.
