Location

The Baltic Port Rail Mukran GmbH (BPRM) is located in the north-eastern part of Germany, on the island Rügen, in Mukran Port.

The site is one of the five largest ports on the German east coast. It thus occupies a prominent position among the large-scale industrial sites in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. The direct access to the open sea allows unhindered navigational approach without compulsory pilotage. The water depth of 12.5m and modern berths make the port accessible to almost all ship classes which operate in the Baltic Sea region.

Mukran Port is the only port in Western Europe which provides in addition to standard gauges, rails and transshipment terminals which are suitable for Russian and Finish broad gauges and is therefore often referred to as "the westernmost station of the Trans-Siberian railway".

Due to the broad gauge (1,520mm) there is an already existing direct connection to the Baltic and Russian rail network in Central Europe which makes this location unique.
