Detail design and technical consultancy services during the construction of the new oil berth, No 54, at Jubail Port. The pier has sufficient capacity to handle chemical product tankers ranging between 20,000 and 80,000 DWT (with a maximum displacement of 100,000 metric tones). The berth consists of a concrete main deck supported on steel foundation piles. An approach trestle which accommodates an access road and pipe racks for products and utilities pipelines, connects the facility to the shore. The berth is complemented by a flexible mooring and fendering system consisting of four breasting dolphins and four mooring dolphins. Six catwalks have been constructed connecting the mooring dolphins, breasting dolphins and the loading platform.
