Russian Government Says Yes to State Funding of Bronka Access Channel

On 26 November 2012, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree "On Amendments to the Federal Target Program "Modernization of Transport System of Russia. Sea Transport.” The changes include the obligation of the state to finance the building of the access channel to the St. Petersburg-based sea port Bronka now under construction. The construction is scheduled to begin in 2013.

The outer harbor Bronka project is being implemented through the public-private partnerships. The government invests in the access channel, while private investors are funding the building of piers and terminals. Overall, private investment in the project will total RUB 43.7bn by the time the terminal is commissioned. The volume of federal investment is projected to be RUB 15.2 billion. 

The outer harbor Bronka is being built 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 Multipurpose Complex Bronka (MMPK Bronka) will comprise three specialized facilities: a container terminal encompassing 107 hectares, Ro-Ro terminal of 57 ha and a logistics center of

42 ha. Container terminal will feature the 1.175 m-long waterfront (including 5 berths). The quay wall of rolling cargo terminal will be 840 meters (4 berths). The Bronka port first phase capacity is projected to be 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.
