MMPK Bronka presents its innovative booth at international exhibition Customs North West - 2015
The Marine Multipurpose Complex Bronka (MMPK Bronka) being built in St. Petersburg participates in the 11th international exhibition Customs North West – 2015 which has opened today, June 3, in Saint-Petersburg. The innovative booth shows the model of the future port Bronka, says project investor and developer Fenix LLC.
Aleksei Shukletsov, Executive Director of Fenix LLC, has told about the construction process, the phases of the outer port project, new opportunities and prospects for the Baltic region and Russia due to new deepwater port. Vital issues associated with MMPK Bronka have been touched. Improvement of Saint-Petersburg environment and reduction of load on road network were among them.
The Marine Multipurpose Complex Bronka (MMPK 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 1.176 m-long quay wall (including 5 berths). The length of Ro-Ro terminal's dock line will be 630 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 MMPK 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 MMPK 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 MMPK Bronka operations is scheduled for September 2015.
