Bronka is a new port facility currently being constructed to increase the container throughput capacity in the St Petersburg region. The project involves the construction of a 6 kilometer long shipping channel, turning basin and berth pockets for the new port facility.
A total volume of 16 million cubic meters of clay, silt and sand will be dredged using a wide range of equipment including medium sized trailing suction hopper dredgers, cutter suction dredgers and backhoe dredgers.
Royal Boskalis Westminster NV was the winer of the EUR 130 million contract. The project commenced in spring 2014 and is expected to be completed late 2015.
