The Port Division owns and operates the Vladivostok container terminal, offering stevedoring, storage, warehouse lease and other port services. The port of Vladivostok benefits from convenient access to the Trans-Siberian Railway and road infrastructure.
VMTP is located in the north-west of Vladivostok, in the ice-free Golden Horn Bay of the Sea of Japan, making it navigable all year round. The port allows FESCO to capitalise on trade flows between Asia and Europe, providing transportation of containerised and general cargo.
With the area of 737,500 sq m, VMTP has 15 berths with a total length of 3.2 km and the maximum depth of 14.4 m. FESCO’s Port Division operates a diversified set of terminals in Vladivostok, including automobile, general cargo, oil and container terminals, and a refrigerated terminal.
VMTP’s annual handling capacities:
- 8.0 million tonnes – general cargo and oil products;
- 723 thousand TEU – containers.
The Port operates 49 cranes with lifting capacity varying from 16 to 124 tonnes, along with fork-lift trucks, tractors, reachstackers, front (bucket) loaders, empty container stackers.
In 2020, VMTP started operating:
- Liebherr LPS 420, a new portal crane with a lifting capacity of 124 tonnes, which became part of the multi-purpose terminal and boasts the largest lifting capacity in VMTP’s fleet;
- four new Vityaz portal cranes with a lifting capacity of up to 63 t each and a maximum boom reach of up to 40 m. This machinery can handle various cargoes at the multi-purpose terminal. The new cranes will increase labour productivity, shorten loading and unloading times, and increase processing speeds by 15–20% over the current levels;
- new Hercules railcar mover and two manipulators.
