The coastal voyage at concessional rates was done under the North Sea Route Development federal project, part of the Comprehensive Plan for the Modernisation and Expansion of the Mainline Infrastructure. The news was reported by the Atomflot media office.
'The nuclear container ship was meant to proceed directly to Kamchatka after leaving the Saint Petersburg seaport, but an offer was made to take extra cargo from Murmansk,' said Leonid Irlitsa, Acting Director General of Atomflot. 'We decided to accommodate the shipper and promptly adjusted the voyage order. It is impossible to launch an effective container line connecting the European part of Russia with the Far East without our partners' interest and our assistance in meeting their goals.'
The Sevmorput nuclear container ship is to berth for unloading on 26-27 July. Three days after the completion of the works, she will head for her home port of Murmansk.
The second subsidised coastal cargo voyage on the Sevmorput nuclear container ship at concessional fares to the Far East and back to the European part of Russia is scheduled for September.
