    RKS-ENGINEERING chosen as the Krasnoyarsk Dam Shiplift overhaul project contractor

    OOO RKS-ENGINEERING was named the winner in an open bidding process and will sign an agreement for rehabilitation of the Krasnoyarsk Dam ship lift’s hydraulic engineering structures, the contractor said.

    Yevgeny Golovkin, Chief Engineer, Krasnoyarsk Dam Shiplift Operations Management, Yeniseyrechtrans Administration, told IAA PortNews that in the shiplift refit will start soon.

    In August 2017, Vladimir Baikalov, General Director of Eniseyrechtrans Administration speaking at the conference Ensuring the Safety and Reliability of Navigable Hydraulic Structures, said that the country’s main state expert review Glavgosexpertiza approved the project of the shiplift rehabilitation second phase in line with the Federal Target Programme for the Development of the Transport System of Russia until 2020 and the project was submitted to the Russian Government for further consideration.

    "After the positive conlusion, we will invite bidders for the RUB 1.2bn contract for the reconstruction of the Krasnoyarsk Dam Shiplift. We hope that the reconstruction project will kick off in 2018," Mr. Baikalov said.

    Glavgosexpertiza’s report said the facility rehabilitation project included renovation of the service premises and control rooms offices, rebuilding of repair and mechanical workshop, of sewage treatment plants (offices of the lab, biofilters, of the sewage pumping station, primary two-tier sediment tanks, of a retaining wall and external concrete staircase. The contractor will also build rainwater/meltwater treatment plants, diesel power stations, lightning conductors, security barriers sections, etc. The contract also includes the facility site improvements.

    The project will be financed through the federal budget.

    The Kransoyarsk Dam Shiplift, the unique hydraulic engineering facility and the only one of this kind in Russia, has performed its work smoothly for more than 40 years now, transporting ships on huge bath over the Krasnoyarsk Dam. This engineering facility was first tested during its pre-commissioning. On September 20, 1976 the first vessel was transported from the tail-water to the upper wall. From year to year, June through October, the shiplift operates without a hitch: there has not been a single ship damage accident so far during her transportation. The first overhaul of the structure was carried out between 1995 and 2006, including upgrading of the HYDROMEChanical equipment and engineering network, with corrosion-resistant coating of the rail-mounted ship bath. However, currently, the wear-and-tear level of steel structures is critical.
