7,134 MW power plant of port's energy supply Phase1 enter service at Bronka (photo)
The first 7,134 power generating plant of the Phase 1 energy supply system project at Multipurpose Sea Cargo Complex “Bronka” (MMPK) based in Big Port St. Petersburg on July 16, 2015 was launched at Bronka port, the port project investor & developer Fenix LLC said on Friday.
The facility commissioning was in strict accordance with the program under the supervision of the Committee on Energy of St. Petersburg and North-West Rostekhnadzor.
This is the state-of-the-art electric-power installation uses large cross-section XLPE cables, high-power dry-type transformers and other technical innovations.
Design and construction works were performed by experts of design-builder "Energy" in conjunction with specialists of JSC "LenEnergo". The power plant was switched on by the JSC “LenEnergo” staff.
Multipurpose Sea Cargo Complex "Bronka" (MSCC 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 a 1,220 m-long quay wall (including 5 berths). The length of Ro-Ro terminal's dock line will be 710 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 MSCC 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 MSCC 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 MSCC Bronka operations is scheduled for September 2015.
