Phase II of MSCC Bronka (Multipurpose Sea Cargo Complex Bronka, Big Port St. Petersburg) has been put into operation, Federal Marine and River Transport Agency (Rosmorrechflot) told IAA PortNews. The document was signed by the Agency on 16 December 2016.
Fenix LLC (MSCC Bronka investor and operator) has thus implemented its investment obligations on this year commissioning of a container terminal able to handle 1.45 mln TEUs and 260,000 Ro-Ro units per year.
The next phase is to expand the container terminal capacity to 1.9 mlnTEUs. It is to be completed by 2020 due to considerable fall container shipping market.
FSUE Rosmorport has implemented dredging works at the access canal to MSCC Bronka. Its depth is now 14.4 m.
The capacity of Bronka’s Phase 1 is 1.45 million TEUs and 260,000 units of Ro-Ro cargoes. In the 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 MSCC Bronka will be able to accommodate Post-Panamax containerships and the ferries of Finnstar class. 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).
