Lightering IJmuiden

From the North Sea OBA Bulk Terminal Amsterdam is accessible for cape size vessels with a maximum draft of 17,80 meters (density 1,026) and a maximum beam of 45 meters. Vessels with these dimensions are being lightered in Ijmuiden at the IJ-palen dolphins. We use our  50 tons floating crane  “Nijlpaard” to discharge the vessel either directly board/board or into storage barges which will bring the coal to the terminal facility.

Vessels with a maximum draft of 13,75 meters can enter the port without lightering.
