Multipurpose Sea Cargo Complex "Bronka" (MSCC Bronka, Big Port St. Petersburg) welcomed a commercial ship from Germany with two Liebherr ship-to-shore cranes. According to the project investor Fenix LLC, the equipment intended for the new outer port was assembled at the production facilities of Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd. in Rostock.
Container cranes STS Liebherr ordered for MMPK Bronka can handle Post-Panamax Plus ships carrying up to 8,100 TEUs in 18 rows.
“This innovative equipment features state-of-the-art speed control system, sophisticated crane management system , high twisting resistance, high quality of metal structures and many other advantages,” he company says.
It is the second commercial ship to call at port Bronka before its official opening. The first ship came to Bronka’s container terminal on June 11, 2015 – most of dredging operations had been completed by that time.
The first start-up complex of MMPK Bronka will be equipped with four 65-tonne container cranes with twin-lift spreader and outreach of 51 m.
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.
