The waters of the Sakhalin region will be cleared of sunken ships
By the end of the year, 26 wrecks will be disposed of in the waters of the Sakhalin region. The main works are now continuing in Severo-Kurilsk, Korsakovsky and Nevelsky districts. This is reported on the website of the governor and the government of the region.
"Large-scale ship recycling works are being carried out in the waters of Severo-Kurilsk. To date, 250 tons of scrap metal have been removed from Paramushir, which will be recycled," the report says.
As noted in the region, work of this scale in the waters of the North Kuril region is taking place for the first time.
According to the Acting Minister of Transport and Road Facilities of the Sakhalin region Maxim Zhogolev, the governor of the region Valery Limarenko set the task of increasing the rate of disposal of sunken ships.
"Today, the Sakhalin region shows one of the best results in the country. As for the North Kurilsky district, one of the difficulties is that there is no licensed scrap metal collection point in the district, this entails additional costs. Therefore, we are currently working on the issue of opening a scrap metal collection point in the municipality by the end of this year, this will greatly simplify the recycling process," said Zhogolev, whose words are quoted in the message.
As noted in the region, sunken ships in the waters not only pose a danger to navigation, but also spoil the appearance, and also have a negative impact on the environment.
Their disposal is carried out within the framework of the federal project "General Cleaning".
