LNK Industries Puts in Commission Five Berths of the Freeport of Ventspils

 “LNK Industries” JSC puts in commission the Freeport of Ventspils berths No. 19, 20, 21, 22 and 23, located at Ostas Street Promenade.

Restoration works included renovation of the berth’s load-bearing metal structures, including  renovation of berths’ walls’ ground coat waterproofness and application of an anti-corrosive coating. In addition, new security stairs were installed, switchgears were partially replaced and deepening was eliminated, as well as repair of the berths’ reinforced concrete superstructure and metal fender beam was carried out. Works were executed both on shore and under water with the help of special equipment and divers. “LNK Industries” began renovation works in late November of the last year.

 “Divers were working on the object, specific devices — pressure-tight chambers, which are used to repair sheet-pile walls in dry conditions at the minus 2 meter mark, were mobilised as well,” says “LNK Industries” joint-stock company  project manager Vadims Bogdanovs.

“LNK Industries” JSC has implemented restoration works of the Freeport of Ventspils berths in in accordance with the results of open tenders for construction of berths No. 19-23. Restoration works of five berths, which the enterprise has implemented at Ostas Street Promenade, were executed on more than 1.1 km lengthwise.

The construction of objects was carried out as a part of the EU Cohesion Fund’s co-financed project “Development of the Infrastructure of the Freeport of Ventspils”, which is implemented within the “"Motorways of the Sea" Infrastructural Development of Large Ports” additional activity  of the “Infrastructure and Services” operational programme.

These are not the only objects, which were implemented by “LNK Industries” enterprise group members in the Freeport of Ventspils. For example, last year, reconstruction of the Freeport of Ventspils Authority berth — Winter Port — was finished and Freeport of Venspils berth No. 12 was put in commission.
