External railway transport of the Murmansk Commercial Sea Port

Project Status: 
Внешний железнодорожный транспорт Мурманского морского торгового порта

Murmansk Commercial Sea Port (MSCP) is an ice-free port on the eastern coast of the Kola Bay of the Barents Sea, the largest transport company in the city of Murmansk. The port is integrated into the Murmansk transport hub.

MSCP provides transshipment of goods in the direction of the polar ports (Sabetta, Dikson, Khatanga). In 2000, MMTP took the 4th place in cargo handling among 37 Russian ports. The large volume of cargo transportation, in turn, required an increase in the throughput capacity of railway approaches to the port.

In 2001, an agreement was concluded between Lengiprotrans and MMTP for the development of project proposals for the reconstruction of the Murmansk railway station with approaches.
