Oil jetty berth 35

Ventspils Free Port authority

Port of Ventspils, Latvia

The Ventspils Free Port Authority is planning to build an oil jetty at the existing berth 35 in the outer harbour basin of the Port of Ventspils for the loading of oil products.

A sketch design has been prepared by Lenmorniiproekt. Witteveen+Bos has been assigned to optimise the sketch design and to prepare a technical design.

The planned oil jetty at berth 35 will accommodate vessels between 15,000 and 120,000 DWT. The oil jetty construction works comprise a trestle, a loading platform, breasting and mooring dolphins with connecting catwalks and slope protections. Dredging is required to enable 120,000 DWT tankers to access the berthing area of the oil jetty. The trestle of the planned jetty will be connected to the to the existing structure of the northern breakwater.
