Coal & Construction Materials

A daily volume of up to 20,000 tonnes of coal can be discharged at berths 23 and 24. Overhead cranes are used at berth 22 for the unloading of limestone, gravel chippings and sea gravel. The handling of such materials is centred around the coal terminal with a capacity of 300,000 tonnes of hard coal. Conveyor belts supply the neighbouring 500 MW hard coal fired power plant as well as additional recipients.

At berth 21, a crane with an hourly output of up to 700 tonnes as well as a preparation plant for see gravel is available.

Projects and Investments

On the western side of pier 3 the rebuilding of berth 23, which is 270 meters long, was largely completed by the end of 2019.  The existing quay structure, which is more than 50 years old, was in need of refurbishment. During the first three months of 2020, further work was done on paving of surfaces and railway track construction as well as dredging to a water depth of 14.50 meters. Full completion was finished in April 2020. In the course of the building work the load-bearing capacity of the quay surface is increased from two to five tonnes per square meter.
