Large seagoing vessels with a fresh water draft of up to 16.00 m (52,5 ft) can call at the port, depending on the tide.
Tanker berths, however, are limited for drafts up to 15.5 m and length up to 300.0 m.
Vessels of up to 150,000 DWT call regularly at the port fully laden. The JNA (Joint Nautical Authority) allows presently drafts of 15.5 m in fresh water of vessels up to 367 m** in length at the water line.
Larger vessels may be accepted under certain conditions if the fresh water draft does not exceed a specially reduced maximum limit, adjusted according to the length of the vessel concerned.
In each marginal case it is advisable to check the permitted draft for a specific vessel.
