The Washington Post called the Northern Sea Route by "the new Suez Canal"


The Washington Post called the Northern Sea Route by "the new Suez Canal"
Thanks to global warming the Northern Sea Route which passes mainly along coast of Russia can become "the new Suez Canal". on which it will be more favorable to transport freights from Asia to Europe, it is told in the article The Washington Post.

As notes the edition if along the southern route through the Suez Canal the way takes 34 days, then along the Arctic track of court there are 23 days. This advantage has arisen thanks to the fact that only in the last decades because of thawing of ices for 13% the movement on the Northern Sea Route has become possible from July to October. One more advantage of the Northern Sea Route is the absence of pirates who annoy seamen near the Horn of Africa in a mouth of the Red Sea. Also one more plus is "the lack of turns", as in the Suez Canal.

on the other hand, authors of article note, the Northern Sea Route has also shortcomings. The first is not population of the territory and extremely poor development of infrastructure that in case of accident can have catastrophic consequences for vessels. The second shortcoming - dependence on the authorities of Russia as the Northern Sea Route mainly lies in her special economic zone, emphasizes WP.

the Reason for this publication became the announcement of trial start across the Northern Sea Route of the first container carrier of the logistic company Maersk at the end of August. The carrier intends to check how short way through the Russian Arctic is capable to replace the main route for transportation of goods between Europe and Asia - through the Indian Ocean and the Suez Canal. Venta Maersk - the container carrier of the average size capable to transport 3,6 thousand standard containers will go from Vladivostok to St. Petersburg with freight of fish and other frozen products. At the same time have assured of Maersk that seriously don't regard the Northern Sea Route as a real alternative of the main transport artery of Eurasia yet.

For 2017 through the Suez Canal has been transported by 1,041 billion t of freights. It in five thousand times more, than has passed across the Northern Sea Route (194 thousand tons.).
