TERMINAL: Praia Mole Coal Terminal
Terminal is designed to discharge coal, coke and other similar cargoes Pier has 700m length, comprising Berth 1 and Berth 2, without physical separation between them. Shore equipment can travel the whole pier.
Cargo Operations: when preparing discharge sequence, Master is requested to avoiding leaving most extreme holds (forwardmost and aftermost) to be operated on final steps. In order to improve terminal’s performance, we request Master to complete discharge of such hold during the standard steps of discharge.
Note on draft restriction: due to design of terminal, if there is a vessel at Berth 2, vessels scheduled to Berth 1 will have to maneuver on a draft of 13,50m + tide
- Note on air draft: crane’s boom is retracted during maneuver. If lowered to its operational position, height from water is 38,00m. The operational air draft of 19,00m is considered when measuring from water till an appendage platform installed on crane to prevent falling of cargo in the water. This appendage is also retractable but must be considered as a limitation during operation. Crew is also responsible to monitor and alert in case crane’s boom is lower than height of ship’s mast.
