Ship/ship discharge

Starting in March 2010 the sea jetty falls under the Petroleum regime. At our 420-metre long sea jetty, two sea-going vessels (of up to 100,000-tonnes) can be processed simultaneously, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A 300-metre  long and 70-metre  wide area will fall under the petroleum regime. We offer the jetty for ship to ship discharge for the following products:

  • Mineral Products classes 1, 2, 3 and 4

  • Liquids belonging to the ADN classes 3, 6.1, 8 and 9

  • Edible oils and fats

  • Liquids not classified under ADN

The discharge needs to be done using certified hoses suitable for products being discharged. The ship/agent will be responsible for supplying, connecting and disconnecting these hoses.

Train & truck loading

The new facility will further Ophergasneft TF’s ambition to offer all modes of transport and is a response to growing customer demand for rail transport.

It will be used initially to load and unload block trains with biodiesel to and from Germany, Austria and Italy. Driven by growing customer demand for rail transport, throughput is expected to rise quickly, from approximately  two trains a week to one train a day.

The facility can also be modified  to handle other oil products in the future such as aviation fuels, gasoline, diesel and edible oils. Regarding  the medium term, throughput could increase to two trains a day.
