Chronicle

Lenmorniiproekt is the historical successor of the Temporary commission on the arrangement of commercial ports of the Ministry of Railways, established in St. Petersburg on June 24, 1885 under the decree of Emperor Alexander III. This commission set up the first in Russian Empire program of ports construction. Company took part in creation of Russia’s sea transport development federal programs. Also on account of the company is the largest development of Russia’s sea basins.

  • From 2009 under Shtokman Gas Field Development LEMNORNIIPROEKT works the project of a new deep water port of Teriberka in Murmansk Oblast. The port’s annual capacity will be 500 thou.tons of gas condensate and 30 million tons of LNG.

    The port is located in the Teriberka Bay of the Barents Sea in the area of adverse climatic, geographical and geodetic conditions.

    The port complex will be internationally equipped using new process structures, modern security, emergency and anti-terrorist protection systems.
     
  • In 2009 the passenger port «Morskoy Fasade» accommodated a first cruise liner.

    It is a reminder that in 2005 LENMORNIIPROEKT won a tender for a set of engineering surveys and preparation of design working documentation for construction of hydraulic facilities and land reclamation as a part of Marine Passenger Terminal in the western part of Vasilievsky Island. The reconstruction and extension of the Sea Station «Morskoy Vokzal» and construction of new Marine Passenger Terminal allowed to develop a uniform Marine Passenger Complex in St. Petersburg and to create marina fasade of the city.
     
  • In 2010 LENMORNIIPROEKT completed design of the Barrier to protect Neva Bay and the Neva River mouth against the storm surge, when the flood was recorded at 4.2 m above zero-water level. The total length of the Protection Barrier is 25.4 km. The Barrier is designed for flood protection at a height of up to 4.55 m, the sea wall top elevation above sea level datum is 7.5 m.
