Quayside / Dry Dock


ERSAI Yard Harbor is situated in the gulf of Alexander Bekovich-Cherkassk”, which is located between Cape Peschany” from the North part of the Caspian Sea and Cape Rakushechny” from the South, in the following geographical coordinates of the approach channel:

43 * 10 '22” North & Latitude and 51 * 36’24” East.

Due to its favorable position the Harbor is well sheltered from the Southeastern winds in winter time & North winds in summer time.

The Western and Eastern breakwaters serve as further protection and restriction of the waves of the sea for the mooring of ships at the jetty.

The total length of five berths is 872 meters, also integrated by Northern and Eastern mooring Dolphins.

The overall quayside length exceeds 1000m, divided into 5 jetties having different elevation for allowing the maximum operative flexibility. The present water depth is 5m but it can be increased up to 6m in case of necessity. The harbor is protected by a breakwater made of rock blocks creating a sheltered basin with an extension of about 350,000 sqm and it is reachable by means of a dedicated access channel 1.5km long having the same water.

The mooring capacity is ensured by 50t bollards placed all along the quayside with a spacing of 20m. The back quay area is made of stabilized soil cement ground granting a bearing capacity up to 50t/sqm allowing the safe and fully operative use of all equipment.
