In the case of a fixed ice channel, deviations from these restrictions can be made in consultation with pilots and icebreakers.

 

  • A working thruster can replace a tugboat. 

  • * No part of the vessel moored at berth # 2 may protrude past the berth corner towards berth # 1 during the maneuvering. In the event that mooring ropes from vessels moored on jetty # 2 are moored to the oil jetty, these must also be removed.

 

A tugboat is defined in this context, as a vessel built for towing and with a bollard pull of at least 20 tons. When two tugs are required according to these restrictions, the total force shall be at least 50 tons.

 

For vessels with LOA > 200 m and or Beam > 30 m, two pilots are to be used.
