3 x 42'' oil lines about 9,500 m long; 10.5 kg/ sq.cm (150 lb/sq.in). Max working pressure; 25,200 m3/h max flow rate.

1 x 26'' line for ballast, about 1,800 m long; 10.5 kg/cm2 (150 lb/sq.in). Max working pressure and 4,000 m3/h max flow rate.

2 x 20'' lines for fuel oil, about 2,000 m long; 10.5 kg/cm2 (150 lb/sq.in). Max pressure and 1,800 m3/h max flow rate. Max working temperature for both lines: 75 deg. C (167 deg. F).


1 x 12'' line for diesel oil. About 1,500 m long; 10.5 kg/cm2. (150 lb./sq.in) max working pressure and 1.070 m3/h max flow rate.

Auxilary Facilities
Both berths are equipped with recording devices to conintuously measure the ship's speed and her distance to the pier. Both berths are also equipped with hydraulic powered accommodation ladders for easy access aboard ship.


Cargo/ballast Operations
The terminal is equipped with 2 slop tanks with a combined capacity of 39,200 m3 or 246,960 bbls. Discharge into the sea of any amount of oil or oil based products either alone or in combination with ballast water, is strictly forbidden and heavily fined. GEBIG is particularly interested in having vessels complete the deballasting operation promptly after berthing in order to minimise time at berth. Simultaneous loading/deballasting or unloading/ballasting is allowed on properly equipped vessels.


Hose Handling
Hoses are in use for fresh water supply only. For loading/unloading operations, the terminal is equipped with 11 quick release flange connection loading arms of 150 lb/sq.in. capacity. The terminal lines allow oil discharging at a rate of 25,200 m3/ph and loading up to 12,900 m3/ph.
