FSUE Rosmorport is set to commence dredging in the outer harbor Bronka (Big Port of St. Petersburg) in 2012, as part of the firs phase of the marine terminal project, Rosmorport said.
As Rosmorport’s North-West branch CEO Sergey Pylin said, the federal enterprise also plans to begin dredging in 2013 for another outer harbor project to be based in the are of Litke (Kronstadt).
The Bronka project is implemented by Phoenix Ltd on the southern coast of the Finland Gulf, in the area of junction of the dam with the ring road to the city of Lomonosov.
The marine multifunctional complex Bronka (MMPK Bronka) will comprise three specialized facilities: a container terminal encompassing 107 hectares, Ro-Ro terminal of 57 ha and logistics center of 42 ha. Container terminal will feature the 1.175 m-long waterfront (including 5 berths). The waterfront of rolling cargo terminal will be 630 meters (3 berths).
Bronka first phase capacity is projected at 1.45 million TEUs and 260,000 units of Ro-Ro cargoes. The facility’s container throughput is planned to be increased to 1.9 million TEUs. The Bronka Multipurpose Complex will be able to handle Panamax containerships and the ferries of Finnstar class. The first ship call is expected in 2014.
Private investors are expected to inject nearly RUB 43.7 billion in the project with the Russian Government investment at some RUB 15.2 billion.
The Bronka project will help create over 2,300 new jobs. Upon completion of the outer harbor facilities annual direct tax payments to the budget of St. Petersburg will be at RUB 1.7 billion (plus indirect tax – RUB 5.1 bn), the federal budget will get RUB 2.0 billion a year (RUB 5.9bn).
A fully-owned subsidiary of JSC Holding Company "Forum" Phoenix Ltd. was founded in 2007 specifically for the construction of Bronka multifunctional marine cargo handling complex to be located in the new Cargo Area of the Big Port St. Petersburg. The project is supported by the Russian Ministry of Transport and the St. Petersburg City Administration.
