Our coastal terminal is a bonded storage facility specialised in the receiving, storage, and dispatching of chemicals and petrochemicals by road, rail and sea.

Our terminal offers unique strategic features, including a direct connection to the berth from where the ships unload (Genoa Oil Terminal), an internal railway connection (to the Genoa-Ventimiglia line), the proximity to the motorway (Genova Pegli junction on the A10) and a range of different-size tanks and different tanker lorry load points.

How we operate

Products – coming in largely by sea – are received at the berths on the western bank of the Genoa Oil Terminal, which are connected to our coastal terminal via three pipelines.

Generally, products are then dispatched by road or rail, via tanker lorries and tanker wagons (the latter being a more sustainable solution, in that it allows to achieve a significant reduction in the movement of tanker lorries by road), to companies across northern Italy and central Europe.

Tanks

Our coastal terminal covers an area of about 30,000 square meters and includes 31 semi-buried or underground tanks with a total capacity of 26,840 cubic meters, distributed as follows:

5 tanks of 3,000 cubic meters

4 tanks of 1,000 cubic meters

6 tanks of 700 cubic meters

2 tanks of 400 cubic meters

6 tanks of 300 cubic meters

8 tanks of 130 cubic meters

Docking area

Ships dock at the western bank of the Genoa Oil Terminal, which is connected to our own terminal via stainless-steel pipelines.

The berth area has the following characteristics:

Berth                          West 3

Type of berth          finger

Type of docking      alongside

Side                             starboard

Max depth               10.80m

Max length               280m

Max width                no restrictions

Max GRT                   no restrictions

Lines                           1 x 6″- 2 x 8″

Loading hoses         6″

Max loading rate    100-250 m3/h

Unloading rate        250-450 m3/h

Manifold pressure to be maintained at          6.5-7 bars

Note: vessels must be equipped with segregated ballast tanks.

Vessels fitted with IGS (Inert Gas System) are required to use it, as they are only allowed to moor if all tanks are inerted and/or gas-free.

During unloading, inerting must be continued throughout all operations.

During loading, the concerned tanks may be kept gas-free for inside inspection by the loading master but must be inerted prior to loading.

In order to allow connection of the hose, the vessel must be equipped with a derrick, in the proximity of the manifolds, with a lifting capacity of at least 3 tonnes.

Timetable and procedures

We accept ships 365 days a year.

For safety reasons, ships with flammable products in excess of 1,600 tons are allowed to moor during daylight hours only. Once moored, unloading operations can continue through the night. Other ships are allowed to moor both day and night.

The loading of tanker lorries and wagons takes place during week days from 8:00am to 3:30pm, unless otherwise agreed.

Customs operations are carried out by forwarder agent Giacomo M. Puppo S.r.l., who has a permanent office at our terminal.
