The Terminal

OBA Main Terminal is located in the Westhaven of the port of Amsterdam. Total quay length for berthing the importers is 900 meters.

With the separate belt systems, we are able to discharge two (cape size) vessels simultaneously to the open storage areas. The total of the 7km of conveyor belt system provide a good access to the Main Terminal, with a discharging capacity up to 80.000mt per day. 8 large magnetic separators are installed at strategical points in the belt system, to clean out any tramp iron contamination  from the cargo’s.

With our mobile belt feeders and the scraper installation we are able to re-load to the following loading installations:

  • Shiploader “Toren 1”: located in the Sonthaven with a quay length of 200 mtrs, suitable for loading (push)barge combinations up to 12.000mt (4 barges) without shifting. Capacity: 3.200 ton/per hour
  • Shiploader “Toren 2”: Sonthaven jetty / spoutloader, suitable for loading barges and seagoing vessels (draft up to 10 metres, max loa approx. 170mtrs.). Capacity: 2.500 ton / per hour
  • Railcar loading facility “Toren 3”: Capacity 20.000mt per day.

Covered storage

The storage sheds are situated on the Main Terminal. The 5 sheds (in total 25.000m2 of covered storage capacity) are located directly at our main quay, which means they have deep water access. With our gantry cranes the vessel can be directly discharged into the sheds with the grab . One of our gantry cranes is equipped with a dynamic weighing system.

Terminal North and ACP Terminal

Discharge onto stock is done by using floating cranes, which are accommodated between the importer and the quay wall.
