Kerch Port Agglomeration Development
April 22, 2014 11:23


A new dry-cargo port of Taman estimated at more than 220 billion roubles can become a part of the Kerch port agglomeration.

This opinion was expressed by the Head of the Ministry of Transport of the RF Maksim Sokolov to the journalist. “Large-scale development of the Kerch port and other ports in the Crimea will be discussed” - the minister said. – “But I think we can talk of the formation of a certain prospective agglomeration with Kerch as a major logistics center.”  

Sokolov said that as for today, Kerch sea and Kerch fishing ports operate in the city. He added that it is problematic to develop additional port facilities here, because the ports are located inside the city. “But there is the port Caucasus on the other side of the Kerch ferry, and Temruk and Yeisk not far from the city. Besides, we are preparing another draft of Taman port which is planned to become one of the largest ports in the Russian Federation” - he recalled, adding that the Ministry of Transport expects to receive a conclusion of the RF State Expert Evaluation Department on the  draft of the new port of Taman in April.

Now Kerch and Taman are separated from each other, the minister noted. “The Kerch ferry as a natural barrier does not allow representing them as a single whole. But once the bridge is built and it is possible to pass from one side to the other in 10 minutes, I think, it all will be linked in a single agglomeration - both port and urban one” - Sokolov added. He also noted that the position of the Ministry of Transport towards the Kerch port agglomeration is “yet being formed”.

Total funding amount for the project of a new port construction on the Taman peninsula (Krasnodar Territory) exceeds 228 billion roubles, the construction of federal property facilities is planned to be financed from the state budget. The financial model of the project is currently being developed.
