TOMSK, Jul 20 – RIA Tomsk. Siberian Center of Logistics (SCL) which owns Tomsk Shipping Company (TSC) bought Arkhangelsk Northern River Shipping Company (NRSC) which has a marine fleet and infrastructure in the Gulf of Ob; the deal will allow Tomsk holding to increase freight traffic in the area of active oil and gas production, SCL co-owner Vladimir Knol told RIA Tomsk.

Earlier it was reported that Tomsk Shipping Company (TSC), which owns the largest river fleet in the Ob-Irtysh basin, was planning to engage in maritime transportation in the Gulf of Ob in 2020, for which purpose it acquired a tug of the appropriate class in Murmansk.

"We acquired the Northern River Shipping Company (NRSC). It happened literally in April, we did not announce it because the deal was being drawn up. Today we are already working there. This steamship company is based in Arkhangelsk on the Northern Dvina, but it has been engaged in the Gulf of Ob for a long time and has berths in Yamburg, Labytnangi (this is in Salekhard). We couldn't work there without all that infrastructure," Knol said.

He explained that the largest liquefied gas and oil shipping complex in the Russian Federation operates in the Gulf of Ob, and its year-round operation is ensured by the nuclear-powered fleet.

The agency's interlocutor did not disclose the amount of the deal, but noted that it will allow the Tomsk Siberian Center of Logistics (SCL), which now includes both the Tomsk Shipping Company (TSC) and the Northern River Shipping Company (NRSC), to increase the volume of marine cargo shipments by an order of magnitude as early as 2022: "They (NRSC- Ed.) have about 140 fleet units. This is a powerful fleet, adapted to work in sea conditions."

"The competition (of river companies) in the Gulf of Ob is very big: the Tyumen people work there, and Murmansk, Yakutia and Yenisei work there – all nature is there. Everyone is trying to grab a bigger piece of the pie there. We want to become visible, although this is a completely new business for us. Quite recently, we didn't even have maritime specialists in the team," Knol added.

According to the SPARK-Interfax information and analytical system, ZAO SCL was registered in Tomsk in 2004 (the office is located in the building of the river station). In addition to AO TSC, the holding includes OOO Samus Ship Repair and Shipbuilding Plant, OOO River Port Nizhnevartovsk and three other companies. At the end of 2020 the holding's revenue was 5.75 billion rubles, net profit – 1.1 billion.

TSC's revenue in 2020 was 1.72 billion rubles, and net profit – 170 million. For comparison, the financial indicators of the Arkhangelsk NRSC at the end of last year were as follows: almost 2 billion rubles of revenue and 103 million net profit.
