    Port Bronka and Svijazhsk Logistic Center look into cooperation

    Marine Multipurpose Complex Bronka (MMPK Bronka, Big Port St. Petersburg) and Svijazhsk Interregional Multimodal Logistic Center (Svijazhsk IMLC, Tatarstan) are looking into cooperation for highly-efficient logistics in container transportation sector. According to the press center of Fenix LLC (Bronka project investor and developer), the negotiations were held during TransRussia-2015 Exhibition by Timur Azhimov, Deputy Transport Minister of the Republic of Tatarstan,  and Aleksei Shukletsov, Executive Director of Fenix LLC.

    The parties marked the advantageous geographical location of both MMPK Bronka and Svijazhsk IMLC as well as their simultaneous appearance in the market of transport & logistic and stevedoring services.

    MMPK Bronka – as a deepwater outer port located in Saint-Petersburg, the main ‘sea gate’ of Russia, and having a convenient access to railway infrastructure – will be able to ensure smooth handling of containers delivered by trains from the central Russia to Saint-Petersburg and back.  Svijazhsk IMLC located, in its turn, in the very center of transport corridor “Europe-Western China” and linked to trunk railways, railway junction “Svijazhsk” and freight distribution station “Yudino”, will ensure accumulation and repacking of freight delivered by the above mentioned corridor as well as freight from industrially developed area of the country’s central part.

    Thus, cooperation of MMPK Bronka and Svijazhsk IMLC will allow for creation of a reliable export-import transport corridor, ensure efficient logistic for container flows, facilitate economic development of the regions, production of export goods, phasing out of imports and generation of jobs.

    Creation of Svijazhsk IMLC in the Republic of Tatarstan is one of the largest projects on creation of a comprehensive full-service logistic center in Russia and the largest on in the Volga Region.  It has been under implementation from 2010 within the framework of the federal special-purpose programme “Development of Russia’s Transport System, 2010-2020”. Investments into the project exceed RUB 20 bln. As of today, 95% of infrastructure being developed by the state is ready. The 193-hectare area divided into 6 lots is to be officially presented in late August 2015. The launch of the Center operation is scheduled for 2017. The Center’s estimated annual throughput is to make 12.2 mln t by 2020 and 29.1 mln t by 2030. Creation of a special economic zone at the Center is under consideration today.

    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.
