GAC Russia Expands Portfolio

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

GAC has marked ten years in Russia with an announcement of plans to develop enhanced marine services to support offshore energy projects in Russian waters.

The company opened its first office in the key Black Sea port of Novorossiysk in 2001 to attend to tankers at the newly opened CPC-R terminal, later extending its ship agency services to Sheskharis oil terminal and the dry cargo port of Novorossiysk. Offices in Moscow, St Petersburg, Murmansk and Taman followed. Today, the company employs 35 personnel and has attended to more than 2000 port calls.

Arkady Podkopaev, GAC Russia’s Managing Director, says the latest addition to the company’s portfolio of services is project cargo logistics for the energy sector operating in Russia shelf areas of the Black Sea, Caspian Sea and elsewhere. This has included transportation of gas turbines from Italy to Uzbekistan via Turkmenistan, and pipes for offshore pipelines from Romania to Turkmenistan.

GAC Russia also arranges towage of foreign-flagged vessels and floating cargoes through Russian waterways such as the Volga Don Canal. Last year, GAC Russia arranged the transit of GAC’s own M/V GAC Pearl through Russia when the vessel was mobilized from Nigeria to Turkmenistan.
