Since the beginning of summer navigation, the renovated berths of the Northern River Station have received more than 500 thousand passengers. This was announced by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Moscow Government for housing and communal services and improvement Peter Biryukov.

“For the period from April 24, more than eight thousand approaches of ships of cruise and pleasure directions were noted, the passenger traffic amounted to over 500 thousand people,” he stressed. “The main traffic is expected to be on walking routes – on weekends, six motor ships leave every hour”.

As part of the large-scale reconstruction of the Northern River Station, which was completed last year, 17 berths were updated. 11 of them are intended for the mooring of the cruise fleet, the rest – for the anchorage of pleasure boats. Today, the renovated berths can simultaneously accommodate 34 vessels: 19 large cruise ships and 15 pleasure boats.

“In the shortest possible time, the most difficult work was carried out to deepen and strengthen the bottom, overhaul of the retaining wall of the berths and staircases, laying of cable ducts, pipelines for water supply to ships, modern and comfortable inspection pavilions were equipped,” said Pyotr Biryukov.

In addition, as part of the reconstruction of the berths, modern power and water supply systems have been created for ships. At the same time, 24 vessels can receive electricity, 13 refueling points have been installed to replenish supplies of drinking water.

They arrange ships at berthing places, taking into account their technical characteristics, draft and depth of berths, organize unmooring and timely departure.
