Solvo has provided its terminal operating system (TOS) to start container operations at the Bronka Multipurpose Sea Cargo Complex (MSCC Bronka) in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
MSCC Bronka’s three facilities, a logistics center, container and Ro-Ro terminal, are expected to make the complex one of the key cargo shipping areas in the Port of Saint Petersburg, with a throughput capacity of 1.9 million TEUs once fully expanded.
The greenfield terminals are currently able to handle 1.45 million TEU, 260,000 Ro-Ro cargo units, and can accommodate Post-Panamax class containerships.
MSCC Bronka's container terminal has four Post-Panamax berth cranes, an LHM-800 port mobile crane, 10 RTG cranes, terminal tractors, reachstackers, and forklifts.
Negotiations between Solvo and Bronka Port representatives started five years ago before the terminal was built.
Consultation and expert support for MSCC Bronka was provided by the German company Hamburg Port Consulting GmbH (HPC), while software deployment was carried out by Solvo in its role as the general contractor for related hardware and infrastructural works.
In its role, Solvo carried out wireless network deployment and development of a gateway between TOS and third party hardware and software.
Its TOS has taken into account the specifics of MSCC Bronka’s yard, vessel, rail and road transport processing, with features such as a web portal for cargo forwarders and shipping line agents, a terminal equipment management module, automatic tracking of empty and unnumbered containers, reefer container storage zone management, and customs integration.
