How to Reduce the Cost of Building Ports?

How to Reduce the Cost of Building Ports?

08 August 2022

Dear fellow-thinkers, we are sharing with you a special project on the possibilities of string technologies in the field of sea cargo transportation, published by “PortNews”, a special information and analytical agency in the field of sea and river transport.

How can string technologies reduce the cost of port construction?

At the 6th International Arctic Summit “Unitsky String Technologies” has presented promising developments for the exploration of the northern territories. Among the proposals is the optimization of cargo transportation along the Northern Sea Route. The bottom line is the development of state ports with a built-in transport system. The advantage of such logistics hubs is that they are built at a distance from the coast. This excludes significant expenses for construction work, which would be required near the land. The process of cargo and passenger delivery takes place automatically on a string-rail overpass connecting the port and the land with the help of electric vehicles on steel wheels.

Every ship needs a pier

The volume of sea cargo transportation is increasing every year, in connection with this, the workload of deep-water ports is growing. The problem can be solved by the development of a fundamentally new map of the seaport – more accessible and environmentally friendly – using string technologies.

How will string technologies optimize costs and preserve nature?

An alternative solution of the company is the construction of seaports, which include a string transport system. Such a corresponding logistics complex will be equipped for the mooring and repair of ships, their loading, unloading, embarkation and disembarkation of passengers. The port complex is taken out to sea at natural depths. The string track structure makes it possible to deliver cargo to a point up to 10 km away from the coast. When building a port there, it is not necessary to "clear up" a place for mooring ships – due to the natural depth. The structure of piers can be installed on a pile foundation or on floating anchored pontoons. This makes it possible to reduce the weight of the mechanism and avoid possible dredging during construction.

Ultimately, much less funds are required for the construction and the proposed marine complex compared to the emergence of ports. Along with this, the developers say, a marine complex built using string technology that does not harm the ecosystem in the coastal and shelf areas.

In addition, string transport and infrastructure complexes can also be integrated into already existing ports. String transport will deliver cargo to remote ports located in hard-to-reach areas. According to the company, its solution can increase the volume of cargo transportation along the Northern Sea Route tenfold. The specialists are confident that string transport, moving at speeds up to 150 km/h, will significantly reduce logistics capabilities and reduce the cost of shipping.
