"We are delighted to start this strategic cooperation with a leading and global company like Cargotec that has decades of firsthand knowledge of marine transport solutions. Their know-how of port automation will be very beneficial for us when we discuss Russian ports infrastructure development. This agreement shows that Russia is interested in cooperation with Finnish companies to modernize its port capacity. The Strategy of seaport infrastructure development in Russia until 2030 is aimed at doubling the port capacity within next tenyears. Therefore, cooperation with Finnish companies is an important step in the development of the industry," says Andrey Lavrishchev, General Director of FSUE Rosmorport.
