Heavy load carrier Meri has delivered the last two RTG cranes manufactured by Konecranes to the Marine Multipurpose Complex Bronka (MMPK Bronka, Big Port St. Petersburg) from port Hanko (Finland), says Bronka project investor and developer Fenix LLC. According to the statement, the port has now taken the delivery of all ten RTG cranes intended for the project’s initial phase.
The cranes with a lifting capacity of 50 t are able to stack one-over-five containers in 6+1 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.
