X. Information about the seaport technical parameters for berthing
    and the seaport waters depth

 

 

80. The seaport is available for vessels of:

not more than  260  m in length, up to 45 m in breadth and up to 13.2 m draught -  at the terminals of the OTC;

not more than 230 m in length, up to 38 m in breadth  and up to 11.9 m draught - at  the terminals of the CT;        

not more than 120 m in length, up to 15 m in breadth  and up to 3.8 m draught - at the terminals of the DST located on the cape Mys Putevoy.   

81. Information about navigable depth in the seaport waters and alongside the wharves, and  the service draft of vessels  is announced to seafarers by the Harbour Master annually and in the event of any changes.  

 

XI. Information on ice navigation in the seaport waters and on their approaches  

 

82. The period of ice-breaker assistance for ships starts in the beginning of ice formation and completes when the Gulf of Finland is finally free of ice.   

83. Start and completion of ice-breaker assistance period in the seaport waters and the approaches to the seaport are announced by the Harbour Master. 

84. The Ice Operations Headquarters is set up in the east of the Gulf of Finland to provide ice-breaker assistance.

85. Information about ship's approach to the Convoy Meeting Point (hereinafter referred to as "CMP") is sent 72 hours in advance and confirmed 24 hours prior to the expected time of approach to the CMP according to item 21 of these Bylaws.

The schedule and place number of ships proceeding at the same time in ice convoy are arranged by the Harbour Master at 1000 hrs. local time daily and given at www.pasp.ru. In the event of complications of ice conditions and necessity to update the information, the time and order of ships proceeding along the ice channel are specified by 2000 hrs. local time daily and placed on the website. 

 86. Depending on the ice situation forecast in the seaport waters, the Harbour Master imposes restrictions on ice navigation mode according to Appendix No. 7 to these Bylaws and gives the location of the CMP. Information about the ice navigation restrictions and location of the CMP is given at www.pasp.ru not later than 14 days prior to the supposed date of their coming into force.

The restrictions on ice navigation mode stated in Appendix No. 7 to these Bylaws do not apply to the vessels aged 15 years and under, of 10,000 gross tonnage and above, which meet the requirements of Russian Maritime Register of Shipping regarding ice navigation without ice-breaker assistance and with ice-breaker assistance. In this case the restrictions on ice navigation mode prescribed for such vessels by the regulations of Russian Maritime Register of Shipping are applied.

87. Inbound vessels are to proceed to CMP using VTS directions. Vessels unable to proceed to CMP by their own power are provided with ice-breaker assistance on request of their shipowner (captain of the vessel). In ice navigation period any vessel proceeding inward or outward the seaport is to be in a position to ensure manual mode of the main engine control.

88. Ice-breaker assistance is performed by port and line ice-breakers in ice convoy. In the event a vessel cannot proceed in convoy, she may request an individual ice-breaker assistance which is arranged upon availability of ice-breakers not engaged in ice convoy. 

89. Formation of ice convoys for entering the seaport is made according to item 85 of these Bylaws and is based on: 

time of ship's approach to the seaport; 

time when the notice of expected arrival at the seaport or departure was submitted;

priority order of ships traffic established by General rules;

ice navigation mode restrictions.   

While approaching the seaport a vessel is to arrange radiocommunication with an ice-breaker and act according to her directions. If necessary, VTS assists the vessel to contact the ice-breaker.

90. Depending on the actual ice conditions on the approaches and in the seaport waters, and technical parameters of inbound vessels, vessels may follow the route without assistance using VTS directions.

When proceeding without ice-breaker assistance, vessels must advise VTS about passing the control points and give information on the ice conditions en route.

91. Vessels proceeding in ice convoy are to change VHF channels as directed by the ice-breaker.      

92. Splitting off the ice around the icebound vessel which got stuck is permitted to be done only by an ice-breaker.   

93. Sufficient fuel capacity, provisions and stock of fresh water must be available for the vessel for a period of not less than 14 days from the time of arrival at CMP to enter the seaport. Should a vessel be waiting for the ice-breaker assistance for more than 14 days from the time of arrival at the CMP, the Harbour Master is to take proper measures to conduct the vessel to the seaport.

 

 

XII. Information on the reports of captains of vessels staying at the seaport
         in the event of threat of unlawful act of interference   

 

 

94. In the event of threat of unlawful act of interference in the seaport, a captain or a ship's security officer without delay must report it to the port facility security officer as well as to the Harbour Master.

95. The security level of port facilities and vessels staying at the seaport as well as any changes of the threat levels must be reported to the Harbour Master.  

96. Announcements about threat of unlawful acts in the seaport as well as any changes of vessel's  security  level, and confirmation of such announcements are to be made immediately on VHF channels.

97. All the incidents related to finding precarious objects or explosive devices, signs of preparing and realization of unlawful acts, facts of illegal boarding a ship, receiving any information about facts of threat of terrorism and of all infractions or dubious persons in the seaport are to be immediately reported by the captains to the Harbour Master and the port facility security officer on VHF channels and via additional means of communication which must be brought to the notice of all concerned persons by the Harbour Master.   

 

 

XIII. Navigational and hydrometeorological information
for captains of ships staying at the seaport

 

 

98. At 1200 hrs. Moscow time daily on VHF Channel 12 the Harbour Master announces to ships the following navigational and hydrometeorological information:

 

meteorological information and warnings; 

condition of aids to navigation;

information about the operating conditions (any alterations) of hydrotechnical facilities;

information about the seaport depths  and permissible draughts of vessels;  

information about navigational restrictions in the seaport waters; 

information about the factors obstructing ships traffic;   

information about water level in the seaport.    

99. The information prescribed in item 98 of these Bylaws may be obtained by the captains of vessels on request on VHF Channel 12.  

100. Storm warnings (notice of unfavorable hydrometeorological conditions) are immediately sent to the vessels:

staying alongside the berths of the seaport - by the Harbour Master on VHF Channel 12;

when at anchor or navigating in the seaport waters - by  VTS on VHF Channel 9.
