Realising Opportunity

A Port of Trust

The hydrocarbons processed in Port-La Nouvelle represent more than 1 million tonnes of imported products. These are white refined products, mainly gasoil, unleaded petrol and marine fuels. In addition, the port operates Fatty Acid Methyl Esters (FAME) and ethanol for about 60 000 to 100 000 tonnes per year. This tonnage is increasing. It will soon reach 100,000 t per year due to the growing demand for ethanol. Ships are operated 7/7 days and 24/24 hours.

The sea-line is accessible to vessels up to 192 m long x 31.30 m beam x 11,90 m summer draft, maximum 30,000 t dwt and 40,000 t displacement.

B1 berth (D2) for the reception of gasolines, ethanol and biofuels. This berth accepts ships up to 145 m long x 22 m beam x 8 m summer draft.

BFutur port : with the new port, the sea-line will be replaced by the berth P1 whose operator will be EUROPORTS-CLTM.
