Installation of tanks for sanitary and surface water treatment has been completed at the Marine Multipurpose Complex Bronka (MMPK Bronka, Big Port St. Petersburg), says the the press center of the project investor Fenix LLC.
Each of the three tanks is 5,000 cbm in capacity.
According to the statement, there is no branch sewer of the state water supply company Vodokanal in the area of MMPK Bronka. Therefore environment safety requirements suggest that water treatment facilities should be built at the Complex for not formal but real treatment of wastewater up to the allowed water contamination level before it is discharged into water bodies of the highest fishery category.
The Marine Multipurpose Complex Bronka (MMPK Bronka) is being built on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland, where the Dam and the Ring Road border the territory of Lomonosov. The Bronka Complex will comprise three specialized facilities: a container terminal encompassing 107 hectares, the Ro-Ro terminal of 57 ha and a logistics center of 42 ha. Container terminal will have 1.176 m-long quay wall (including 5 berths). The length of Ro-Ro terminal's dock line will be 630 meters (3 berths). After completion of Bronka Phase 1 its capacity will reach 1.45 million TEUs and 260,000 units of Ro-Ro cargoes. In future the MMPK Bronka expansion will help increase the facility's container throughput to 1.9 million TEUs. Upon completion of the port's construction and dredging to the design mark of 14,4 meters in 2015 MMPK Bronka will be able to accommodate post-Panamax containerships and the ferries of Finnstar class.
Implementation of the Bronka project is expected to generate 2,300 jobs at its marine terminals alone.
The launch of MMPK Bronka operations is scheduled for September 2015.
