Bronka ready for business

November 20 - With a Liebherr LHM 800 mobile harbour crane installed at the end of September 2015, the first phase of construction at Russia's new deepwater Port of Bronka is now complete.

HLPFI reported on September 30 that the mobile harbour crane, with a lifting capacity of 308 tonnes and a boom range of up to 64 m, had been delivered to the Russian gateway - the first such model to be delivered by Liebherr in a heavy lift configuration.

"We are using the crane at both our container and ro-ro terminals for loading heavy cargo. Given the increasing size and greater weight of industrial plant components, we are optimally positioned for the future," explained Port of Bronka managing director Alexei Shukletsov.

In addition to the LHM 800, the port has four Liebherr ship-to-shore gantry cranes and ten rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes, which were delivered to the gateway from Konecranes in Finland.

The port also houses number of roll-trailers, as well as two rail sidings. Work is now complete to link the rail tracks to Bronka Marshalling Yard, 1.3 km from the port, and the Russian rail network. The extension of the yard is scheduled for completion at the end of December, said the port.

In May 2015, HLPFI reported that the Port of Bronka had become a member of the Port of Hamburg Marketing alliance.
