Note that above Terminals usually working 24 hours a day, shinc.

Vessel(s) not need passing under any bridge at Rio Grande port.

 

GRAIN TERMINALS FOR DISCHARING:

1.  At Bianchini Terminal discharge performed by shorecranes/grabs

     to conveyor belt, with an average disch rate of 6.000MT p/wwday,

     usually working 24 hours a day shinc.

 

2.  At Termasa Terminal, discharge performed by suction (two gangs

     per vessel), also usually working 24 hours a day with an average

     discharge rate of 5.000MT p/wwday.



     Kindly note that at both terminals, disch equipments are

     positioned on fixed towers, thus, depending on disch plan, vsl

     may have to be warped alongside. Normally this warping is made

     by ropes without tugs/pilots assistance, subject to favorable

     weather/current conditions.



     Pls bear in mind that, on despite normally terminal working 24

     hours shinc, it may happen sometimes - depending on their logistic

     need and the berthing lineup - that terminals avoid to work some

     night periods and/or weekends/holidays. This kind of decision is

     taken on the spot.

CHEMICAL ACIDS TERMINALS

BRAKEM TERMINAL
Located at superport area, with maximum draft of 32 feet f.w., belongs to Brasken petrochemical company and is used for loading and discharge of liquid chemicals. There are LOA restrictions of 175 mts and no Beam restrictions, size of vessel usually berthing does not exceed 40.000 DWT. Cargoes usually loaded/discharged are methanol, benzene, ethyl-benzene, toluene, propane MTBE. A 6 inch pipeline connects shore tanks to berth and the usual load/discharge rates are about 220 tons/hour. Quay length is 44 metres, distance between mooring dolphins is 203 metres.

PETROPIER TERMINAL:

Located at superport area with maximum draft of 33 feet f.w. is used mostly for discharge of crude oil for local refinery needs, discharge of liquid ammonia and loading of bunker fuels. There are no Beam restrictions and LOA restriction is 175 mts and tankers up to 65.000 dwt have operated at the berth. Several pipelines connect refinery and ammonia shore tanks to the berth. Loading and discharging rate is 220 mt/hour.

At Rio Grande, there are the following options for discharging of fertilizers :

YARA TERMINAL

Yara Terminal is a private terminal at Rio Grande, where there are two berths (North and South), and discharge is performed by shore cranes only (one shore crane for each berth), to hopper/conveyor belt, working 24 hours a day shinc (receivers´ option), with an average discharge rate of about 4.000 mt per day at North Berth, and about 6.000 mt per day at South Berth.

At Yara Terminal, normally ships cranes are not used during discharge operation.

Restrictions as follows:

- North Berth:

Max allowed draft     : 36 feet (10,97 m) FW

Max airdraft            :  12,0 m

Max allowed LOA      : 230,0 m

Max allowed beam    :  33,0 m

Max allowed DWT     : 70.000 mt

- Commercial Quay:

At Commercial Quay there are the following berths:

- Fertilizers Berth:

At Fertilizers Berth, the max allowed draft is 31 feet (9,45 meters) F.W., and discharge is performed by shore cranes ( 03 shore cranes available for 02 discharge´s berths ) to hopper/trucks, working 23 hours a day shinc (receivers' option), with an average discharge rate of about 2.000 mtper gang/per day.



- New Berth:

At New Berth, the max allowed draft is also 31 feet (9,45 m) F.W., and discharge is performed by shore crane ( two shore crane available for two discharge´s berths) to hopper/trucks, with an average discharge rate of about 4.000 mt per gang/per day, working 23 hours a day shinc (receivers' option).

At both berths the working periods are: 08:00/13:45 - 13:45/19:30 - 19:30/01:15 – 01:15/07:00 hours

(fm 07:00 to 08:00 = meal time), and there is no any restriction about number of gangs, i.e., the number of gangs will be subject to number of ship´s holds.

Use of ship´s cranes are allowed at both berths, subject to request from receivers and Owners´ approval.

At Commercial Quay the official discharged quantities are determined by Customs controlled shore scale. However, Customs may order a draft survey to determine quantity discharged.

Depending the weather (sometimes we have gale force winds prevailing), port is closed by Harbor Master and pilots´ service is suspended/postponed. Usually during theses periods is to have between 06 and 12 hours delay on maneuvers, subject to weather´s condition.

Port is always afloat.

CONTAINER TERMINAL
