The port

Kavala’s site has its own autonomous port / terminal.

  • The port has a PFSP (port Facility Security Plan) as per ISPS code. We apply also BLU (Bulk Loading and Unloading) code – as per ISO 9001:2008
  • Port Facility Contingency Plan, which is in effect, since 2004 and which is annually revised / updated and approved by Port Authorities. All approaching vessels deliver oil residues and solid residues in accordance with the contracts with Hellenic Environmental Centre (HEC) and North Aegean Slops (NAS) – respectively
  • The pier is 280m long with depths starting form ~11m at its south end and gradually decreasing to 3.30m at its north end.
  • A wide grid of belt conveyors is used to transport the raw materials to warehouses and the final products to the port for loading
  • There are two cranes for grab discharging and / or loading bulk cargoes, one crane for loading bulk cargoes (spout trimming only)
  • There is a high precision weight scale (accuracy +/- 2o/oo) for weighing bulk fertilizers being loaded, which is an alternative – besides draft survey – for determining quantities of fertilizers loaded and offers a way of double checking the results of draft surveys.
  • Palletized cargoes can also be loaded on Ro/Ro type vessels, provided vessels are capable of berthing and loading at our port where there is no ramp. In this case, cargo is delivered on vessels ramp or on trucks inside the vessel holds when vessel size permits so.
  • There is a liquid ammonia discharging arm.
