    MSCC Bronka plans its container throughput to double this year, to 75,000 TEUs

    Container throughput of MSCC Bronka (Multipurpose Sea Cargo Complex Bronka, Big Port St. Petersburg)  is to make about 75,000 TEUs in 2017, twice as much as in 2016, IAA PortNews correspondent cites Aleksey Shukletsov, Executive Director of Fenix LLC (Bronka operator), as saying yesterday, when Bronka welcomed the first of the six calls of СOSCO ships.

    Transshipment of general cargo will surge three times, said Aleksey Shukletsov adding that the port has considerable potential to increase the load. 

    “Apart from applying conventional container handling technologies we are working hard on shifting cargo flows from the ports of the Baltic states to the ports of the North-West of Russia, which is a state task today”, emphasized Aleksey Shukletsov.

    MSCC Bronka (Multipurpose Sea Cargo Complex Bronka) is a new deepwater terminal at the port of Saint-Petersburg. The project is implemented through private-public partnership. Investments from the federal budget (RUB 17 bln) allowed for building an access canal and water area with a depth of 14.4 m as well as a transport junction with a direct connection of Bronka to the ring road. Construction of coastal infrastructure through project financing with Fenix LLC as a private investor began in 2011. In December 2015 it was completed and the first phase of the project was put into operation.

    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. Port Bronka is able to accommodate Post-Panamax containerships and the ferries of Finnstar class. The port territory comprises a logistics center and a State Border checkpoint. In April 2017, MSCC Bronka was acknowledged as a strategic investment project of Saint-Petersburg, and is initiator Fenix LLC – as a strategic investor.
