Сегодня Туркменистан становится важнейшим транспортным узлом региона, превращается в крупный международный логистический центр благодаря выгодному географическому положению и конструктивной внешней политике Президента Гурбангулы Бердымухамедова, выдвигающего актуальные предложения по взаимодействию с зарубежными государствами и предпринимающего последовательные шаги по их практическому воплощению.

Ввод в эксплуатацию в мае 2018 года современного Международного морского порта в городе Туркменбаши стал знаковым событием для всех стран Центральной Азии и Каспийского бассейна. Комплекс был удостоен международных сертификатов ряда авторитетных структур.

В настоящее время Международный морской порт Турк­менбаши является важным звеном транспортно-транзитного торгового коридора, соединяющего Азию и Европу, а также крупным логистическим центром, обеспечивающим грузоперевозки по направлениям Восток–Запад и Север–Юг.

Общая площадь комплекса составляет более 1 миллиона 358 тысяч квадратных метров, длина причала для стоянки кораб­лей – 3 тысячи 500 метров, где созданы необходимые условия для одновременной швартовки нескольких грузовых и пассажирских судов.

В оснащённой по последнему слову техники морской гавани имеются все возможности для выхода европейских государств на товарные и сырьевые рынки стран Ближнего и Среднего Востока, в регион Индийского океана.

Порт, в котором представлены лучшие наработки в области профильной инфраструктуры, играет ключевую роль в повышении экспортного потенциала Туркменистана, так как является значимым международным транспортным узлом, благодаря которому на мировой рынок бесперебойно поставляется отечественная продукция. Это имеет огромное значение для диверсификации национальной экономики.

С каждым годом растут объёмы грузов, обрабатываемых на причалах каспийской гавани, через которую в нашу страну доставляются промышленное и сельскохозяйственное оборудование, автотранспортная техника, металлоизделия, лесоматериалы, минеральные удобрения, за рубеж отправляются полипропилен, кокс и другие нефтепродукты, продукция химической и строительной индустрии.

Следует отметить, что в рамках работы по расширению международных торгово-экономических связей и диверсификации торговых маршрутов Туркменистан, как и другие прикаспийские страны, уделяет большое внимание наращиванию потенциала национальной судоходной флотилии. Так, за последние годы по заказу турк­менской стороны были построены современные танкеры и другие суда торгового флота, высокие эксплуатационные характеристики и инновационно-технические параметры которых ставят их в ряд самых востребованных на рынке морских перевозок.

Передовая инфраструктура Международного морского порта Турк­менбаши способна удовлетворять не только имеющийся, но и перспективный спрос качественным предложением и высококлассным сервисом. Его функционирование приведёт со временем к стратегическим изменениям в логистических цепочках континентальных грузоперевозок, важным звеном которых станут туркменские перевалочные терминалы как самые оптимальные для наиболее коротких и выгодных маршрутов.

В ходе ознакомления с инф­раструктурой порта Президент Республики Таджикистан посетил паромный, пассажирский и контейнерный терминалы.

Контейнерный терминал среднегодовой мощностью 400 тысяч TEU занимает территорию 249 тысяч квадратных метров. Этот стратегический объект призван вывести Туркменистан на лидирующие позиции в экспортно-импортной логистической системе региона. Мультимодальный логопарк осуществляет комплекс услуг по хранению и комбинированной обработке контейнерных грузов, доставленных авиа-, авто- и железнодорожным транспортом, обеспечивая их перегрузку на водный транспорт и обратно.

К примеру, железнодорожная стояночная площадка рассчитана на 450 вагонов, и на ней можно круглосуточно осуществлять погрузочно-разгрузочные работы. Протяжённость причала контейнерного терминала – 480 метров, что позволяет вести погрузочно-разгрузочные работы одновременно на нескольких судах суммарной грузоподъёмностью 5 тысяч тонн.

Порт располагает новейшим оборудованием и подъёмно-транспортной спецтехникой для обработки грузов. Так, в контейнерном терминале работают причальные погрузчики типа «судно–берег» (STS) производительностью 25 TEU в час. То есть каждый подобный кран может разгрузить за 12 часов одно судно с 300 контейнерами.

Контейнерный терминал, оснащённый спутниковой системой контроля с выводом всей текущей информации на мониторы операторов, спроектирован в соответствии со стандартом CTQI (Container Terminal Quality Indicator – Индикатор качества контейнерных терминалов). В течение последних нескольких лет во всём мире наблюдается быстрый рост оборота контейнеров, что, естественно, сказалось на увеличении количества контейнерных терминалов. Внедрение CTQI позволило создать единую систему контроля качества в этом
виде услуг.

Благодаря проводимой масштабной модернизации и техническому переоснащению главных «морских ворот» страны объёмы ежегодных грузоперевозок морским транспортом неуклонно растут, увеличивается также и количество заходящих в гавань
иностранных судов.

Контроль за движением судов в акватории порта, погрузочно-разгрузочные работы на всех участках управляются с помощью автоматизированных систем и электронных технологий в режиме реального времени. С целью сохранения экологии Каспийского моря весь проект разработан в соответствии с международным стандартом «Зелёный порт» (Green port).

Здание пассажирского терминала рассчитано на 600 мест. На современном уровне здесь создана система миграционного и паспортного контроля, других необходимых процедур. Предусмотрены также портовая гостиница, торговые и развлекательные центры.

В целом автомобильный и пассажирский паромный терминал занимает общую площадь 230 тысяч квадратных метров, к его причалу могут швартоваться одновременно два судна. Он сможет обслуживать 300 тысяч пассажиров и 75 тысяч трейлеров в год.

В ходе пребывания на территории Международного морского порта таджикский лидер Эмомали Рахмон высоко оценил уровень технической и технологической оснащённости «морских ворот» Туркменистана, отметив наличие хороших возможностей для налаживания продуктивных партнёрских связей с зарубежными государствами, отвечающих обоюдным интересам.

In recent days, a number of Russian media outlets have been spreading unproven and plainly biased reports about the situation on the Turkmen-Afghan border.

In particular, RBC TV channel spread untrue information about the alleged deployment of Turkmenistan's military equipment and artillery to the border with Afghanistan, which means nothing but false information in the pursuit of cheap sensation.

In this regard, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan declares that thanks to the brotherly relations of the two neighboring states and their peoples, the Turkmen-Afghan border is the border of friendship and cooperation. According to the Ministry of Defense of Turkmenistan, all military units, their personnel and military equipment at Ministry’s disposal are remaining in the place of permanent basing and continue to carry out planned training in accordance with the program.

In accordance with the old traditions of good-neighborliness, and with strict adherence to the inviolable principles of the international law and obligations enshrined in bilateral agreements, Turkmenistan is committed to maintaining and strengthening peace-loving and good-neighborly relations with the fraternal Afghanistan.

The Turkmen side was and remains committed to objectivity and honesty in the media space, to dissemination of only verified and thoroughly weighted information. This is extremely important under the current conditions of actualization of a number of aspects of international affairs, including the issues of peaceful settlement of the situation in Afghanistan. Turkmenistan stands for the search and implementation of political-diplomatic mechanisms and instruments to restore peace in the long-suffering Afghan land.
