On this 30-acre site, there is a general cargo pier for loading and offloading cargo for offshore transport vessels. There are also mechanical handling facilities with cranes for handling cargo from vessels at the port. Other port area services include barges, mooring fleets, towing, certified rail and truck scales, and tug services.
