History of education
In 1838, Novorossiysk was founded as a port. It was sea trade that became the determining factor in the development of the economy of this locality. At first there was a single marina made of wood, there were no appliances. A significant impetus to the development of the port is associated with the completion of the construction of the Novorossiysk-Tikhoretskaya railway line. The co-founders of the Vladikavkaz railway connected to the construction of the port, planning to complete its construction by the opening of the station.
At that time, the main processed cargo was grain, which was transported from various parts of Russia. To optimize the transshipment of this raw material, stone and metal barns were built. The main line with conveyors, drawn from the elevator to the pier, facilitated the working process. In subsequent years, the Novorossiysk Sea Port continued to develop actively, mastering the transshipment of various cargoes, including oil products.
In 1920, the company was nationalized. Cargo passed through the port for the Volga region, where then there was a catastrophic shortage of food. During this period, the company was awarded two Orders of the Red Banner of Labor. Towards the end of the twenties, cargo turnover increased, up to 400 or more vessels passed through the berths. By the fortieth years, the Novorossiysk Commercial Sea Port was equipped with four areas for loading and unloading, a coast line, an import and a cement section.
During the Second World War, the enterprise received significant damage, most of the warehouses and equipment were destroyed. But already in 1944 it was practically restored, after the decision of the State Defense Committee on resuscitation of the first stage of the Novorossiysk port. Twenty years later, the second wide berth was launched, and in 1978 the construction of Sheskharis, a harbor for the transshipment of oil products, was completed. This structure is surrounded by a pier and an oil pier, with a maximum depth of 14 meters near it.
After the collapse of the USSR, the Novorossiysk Commercial Sea Port underwent a massive reorganization with a focus on market relations.
Public administration, guaranteeing safe working conditions, and overseeing the implementation of laws and regulatory documents is carried out by a federal institution called the “Novorossiysk Seaport Administration”. More than 80 business entities operate on the territory of the organization.
Production activities are carried out by the Novorossiysk Sea Port group, which includes the following enterprises:
- the Novorossiysk port itself, along with the Sheskharis harbor;
- Ship repair plant;
- IPP OJSC;
- Cereal terminal;
- NCSP Fleet.
In addition, the following companies are actively involved: Caspian Pipeline Consortium, Stroykomplekt, Maintenance Base, freight forwarding company and some other organizations.
