It provides tug, towing and mooring services for vessels in and around the Novorossiysk seaport, and also provides emergency, hazardous materials response and waste management services at the Port.[6]

Following the financial crisis in 1998, business partners Alexander Ponomarenko and Alexander Skorobogatko started to purchase shares in cargo companies that they eventually combined to form NCSP Group. In 2011, the majority stake in NCSP was sold to Summa Capital and Transneft for $2.5 billion.[7]
