MSCC Bronka Supported Youth Festival Pravo Rulya!
Multifunctional Sea Cargo Complex Bronka became a partner of International Youth Foresight Festival for school and college students Pravo Rulya! (Starboard!). The event took place in St. Petersburg from 19th to 23rd of September. The festival week 2017 was dedicated to sea and inland water transport.
One of the most interesting events at the festival was tour to the modern deep-water port Bronka arranged for students participating in festival. The tour included visits to both container and ro-ro terminals and gave young guests chance to learn about the history of the port construction, its structure and equipment, ecological and infrastructure projects, as well as modern transport logistics solutions. Port employees have also told the future specialists about advanced projects.
A conceptual design competition Sem’ Futov (Fair winds) was arranged in frames of Foresight Festival. Core ideas for participants’ projects were ecology and sea transport. Young designers have introduced their projects in rotunda of Anichkov palace and results of their work were as challenging as ambitious and surprised with reach of imagination. Among others there were introduced projects of multifunctional research complex – deep sea eco-laboratory Sea Horse, underwater refuge Coral City allowing hiding from catastrophe events, bathyscaph for sea ground research and Aquasaur project – a robot for cleaning of rivers and channels. Winners of the competition have got presents from Fenix company (owner and constructor of MSCC Bronka).
Port Bronka is an important infrastructure project both for city and whole country. Its unique location makes the port for attractive transport hub as for west and east directions. MSCC Bronka was constructed with integration of most modern technologies, innovative solutions and broad range of environmental protection measures.

The goals of the festival are to attract students interests to scientific-technical and artistic expression, to provide conditions for development of innovative and ecological thinking, as well as to suggest new models of career growth for future generation of professionals.
