Certification of crane runway to commence at Bronka in June 2015 (photo)
Assembling of crane runway is in process at the Marine Multipurpose Complex Bronka (MMPK Bronka, Big Port St. Petersburg). According to Bronka project investor and developer Fenix LLC, the certification of the craneways is to commence in June 2015.
The technology and components of Gantrex (Germany) are used for the assembling. Gantrex® Crane Rail Clips and Crane Rail Pads are the components of the soft mounting system. The system allows the clips, without fatigue, to cope with the stresses in the rail due to the wheel loads and allows controlled free movement of the rail in the longitudinal direction as needed to prevent binding. The use of adjustable clips improves the ease of mounting the rail according to required tolerances, and allows for further adjustment that may be needed throughout the track’s life.
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.
