Sevmorput Nuclear-Powered Container Ship Delivered Cargo to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky

27 Jul 2022   
On July 21, Sevmorput nuclear-powered container ship of Atomflot FSUE anchored at Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky port roadstead. The ship's crew delivered 149 containers and 48 steel structures to Kamchatka. This trip with discounted rates has been part of the Northern Sea Route Development federal project within the Comprehensive Plan for the Upgrade and Expansion of Trunk Infrastructure.


"It was planned that the nuclear-powered container ship would go directly to Kamchatka after leaving the port of St. Petersburg, but there was an offer to take additional cargo from Murmansk," Leonid Irlitsa, Acting General Director of Atomflot FSUE, said. "We met the wishes of the shipper and promptly corrected the trip assignment." Without interest and assistance to our partners in realizing their goals, it is impossible to launch an efficient container line connecting the European part of the country with the Far East.

It is planned that Sevmorput nuclear-powered container ship will stand by the pier for unloading on July 26-27. Three days after the work completion, the ship will head for her home port of Murmansk.

The second subsidized domestic shipment on Sevmorput nuclear-powered container ship at reduced rates to the Far East and back to the European part of Russia is scheduled for September.


On June 16, Sevmorput nuclear-powered container ship left the port of Murmansk for St. Petersburg. On June 23, the ship of Atomflot FSUE arrived for loading at a berth of Petrolesport JSC. Two days later, the nuclear-powered container ship departed for the port of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. On July 2, the ship called at the port of Murmansk to get more cargo. On July 8, the nuclear-powered container ship departed for the port of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.

On May 19, 2022, Atomflot FSUE was selected as the winner of a tender for subsidized coastal voyages from the European part of the Russian Federation to the Far East and back held by the Ministry of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East and Arctic (Minvostokrazvitiya of Russia). Two round trips from the ports located in the European part of Russia to the ports of the Far East are planned as part of this objective in 2022.
