Project description

2009-Em-Pedra-of-Daan-Bos-Ammonia-Jetty-Algeria-1PDG Sorfert Algerie was in the process of developing an ammonia production plant in the Port of Bethioua. The existing M1 jetty was designated to be used for loading vessels with liquid ammonia for export purposes. The existing maritime structures forming the berth such as the fender system, mooring dolphins and the loading platform were designed to accommodate large LNG-carriers of 125,000 DWT. However, the loading of the liquid ammonia required modification of the M1 jetty which will enable the accommodation of smaller vessels ranging from 4.000 DWT up to 100.000 DWT. Hereto new fender sytems, a steel fender frame with cathodic protection, new mooring dolphins, and new bolders and walkways had to be implemented.
