Multipurpose Sea Cargo Complex "Bronka" (MSCC Bronka, Sea Port of Saint-Petersburg) has welcomed the barge Jan which delivered two more STS Liebherr cranes with lifting capacity of 65 t, twin-lift spreader and 51 m outreach, says project investor Fenix LLC.
The cranes were assembled at the Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd. production site in Rostock.
STS Liebherr cranes purchased by MSCC Bronka are designed for handling of Post-Panamax Plus vessels with cargo capacity of 8,100 TEU and are able to reach up to 18 container rows.
As of today, MSCC Bronka has taken the delivery of all four STS cranes intended for the port’s initial phase.
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.
