In Russia will create a national company Maritime dredging. About it reports “Kommersant”.
Analytical centre under the government of Russia has already prepared the corresponding project. The author of the initiative was the company of Saint-Petersburg “Investment. Engineering. Construction”, which is engaged in the construction of hydraulic structures and dredging.
As the member of the Board of Directors of the company Andrey Pushkarev, in recent years, foreign contractors got half a billion dollars on dredging because Russia has no fleet adapted for such activities. Until 2022 it is planned to build 15 ships, investments will amount to 20 billion rubles. The creation of the Corporation should be completed by 2026.
According to Muscaria, the state will not Fund the establishment of the company for the dredging, however, proponents may provide tax incentives, subsidies interest rates on loans and also to provide a certain volume of orders. The company also expects to receive orders from major Russian companies such as NOVATEK and “Gazprom”.
Experts note that there are only about five major players in this market. The main difficulty lies in the fact that after the execution of the project on dredging fleet is often idle. In addition, it is expensive to keep. According to experts, the national company for dredging can be profitable only in case if will have priority in obtaining contracts from major customers — Rosmorport, Rosatom and Rosmorrechflot.
