For the project, the company deployed eight dredging units. In addition to its own vessels, CCCC also invited dredging contractors from other countries.
The MMPK Bronka is being built on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland. The Bronka Complex will comprise of three specialized facilities: a container terminal encompassing 107 hectares, the Ro-Ro terminal of 57 ha and a logistics center of 42 ha.
Upon the completion of construction and dredging activities, MMPK Bronka will be able to accommodate post-Panamax containerships and the ferries of Finnstar class.
