M/V Papenburg delivered Liebherr LHM 800 crane to Multipurpose Sea Cargo Complex "Bronka" (MSCC Bronka, Sea Port of Saint-Petersburg) from Liebherr production site (Germany) on September 26, 2015, says project investor Fenix LLC.
Mobile harbour crane Liebherr LHM 800 features lifting capacity of 308 t in hook operation and 60 t in spreader operation under twin-lift.
Thus, MSCC Bronka boasts the world’s first Liebherr LHM 800.
The crane is intended primarily for handling of oversized and heavy-lift cargo and ConRO ships.
Liebherr LHM 800 crane can be used as auxiliary equipment able to handle Post-Panamax Plus ships carrying over 8,100 TEUs in 22 rows.
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.
