Ust-Luga Port

Ust-Luga Port is the biggest and deepest port of the Baltic Sea, including the Baltic States and Finland.

In 2015, the cargo turnover of the port amounted to 88 mln tons.

Master plan

Being located at the intersection of the North-South (Baltic, Black and Caspian Seas) and East-West (Europe-Asia) intermodal transport corridors, Ust-Luga Port is seamlessly integrated into the northwest transport network and European transport infrastructure. The proximity of the European Union and Central Russia makes it an attractive source of supply of Russian export products.

The large depth of the port waters (17.5 meters) in combination with short approach channels (3.7 km and 1.8 km) enables it to accept any large-capacity vessels whose loaded draft allows them to overcome the Danish straits, as well as any RO-RO ocean-going vessels. Two approach channels ensure the circular movement of ships.

Year-round operation and a short ice channeling period are the unquestionable competitive advantages of Ust-Luga Port.

External roads and railway lines, which bypass the overloaded St. Petersburg Transport Hub, ensure fast and reliable cargo delivery.

A modern system of utilities such as electricity, domestic water supply and telecommunications creates all conditions for the efficient operation of the port.

Ust-Luga Port is universal.

Today, the port has the following 12 terminals that transship liquid and dry bulk, general and containerized cargo: Coal Terminal, Universal Handling Terminal, Technical Sulfur Handling Terminal, Oil Product Transshipment Terminal, Ust-Luga Oil Handling Terminal which is the end point of BPS-2 (Baltic Pipeline System-2), Oil Transshipment Terminal, Multipurpose Handling Terminal Yug-2, Road-Rail-Ferry Terminal, Container Terminal, and Stable Gas Condensate and Liquefied Hydrocarbon Gas Transshipment Terminals. The terminals provide services involving the transshipment, additional handling, and storage of more than 20 categories of cargo. Due to the use of modern technologies and equipment, the terminals can meet competitive service deadlines.

There are empty areas in the northern part of the port, where both port and industrial sites can be built and developed.
