TECHNICAL PORTS​

GIBRALTAR STRAIT​

With our established offices in both Gibraltar and Algeciras, we are well-positioned to provide a comprehensive suite of services to meet all our customers’ requirements. This strategic presence enables us to seamlessly coordinate activities across both ports, ensuring maximum efficiency and effectiveness in our operations.

Gibraltar

In Gibraltar, which is not part of the Schengen area, crew changes can be facilitated without a Schengen Visa; an OKTB (Okay to Board) and a letter to the airline are sufficient for crew embarkation. The range of maritime services offered includes:

  • Boat services, such as OPL (Off-Port Limits) for slower deliveries and crew changes.
  • Hull cleaning and underwater inspections to ensure vessel integrity and performance.
  • Ship-to-ship operations, capable of being conducted either at anchorage or with direct access to floating storage, for efficient cargo transfer.
  • Access to workshops for repair and maintenance needs.
  • Bunker and lube oil deliveries, which can be conducted simultaneously to optimize time.
  • Disposal services for slops and sludge, ensuring environmental compliance.
  • Supply of non-potable water.
  • Assistance with vessel re-delivery or change of vessel name procedures.
  • Availability of dry dock facilities for major repairs and maintenance.
  • Provision of medical services, including vaccinations, directly at anchorage for convenience.
  • Lay-by berth and inner anchor positions for bunkering, providing a sheltered spot for refueling.
  • Cash to Master (CTM) services, available both at anchorage or alongside the dock.
  • Renewal of SSEC (Ship Sanitation Exemption Certificate) in the anchorage area, ensuring health compliance.

These services are designed to support the operational needs of vessels while ensuring compliance, safety, and efficiency.

Algeciras

In Algeciras, a comprehensive range of maritime services is provided to support vessel operations, including:

  • Issuance of invitation letters for on signers and transit visas for off signers, facilitating crew changes.
  • Boat services are available, including OPL (Off-Port Limits) activities, even during slower periods for deliveries and crew changes.
  • Hull cleaning and underwater inspections are permitted in the waters of Algeciras, ensuring vessel maintenance and compliance.
  • Provision of Nitrogen and LPG for gassing up, available alongside the vessel for convenience.
  • Access to workshops for repair and maintenance needs.
  • Deliveries of additives and doping services at anchorage, enhancing fuel efficiency and compliance.
  • Concurrent bunker and lube oil deliveries, optimizing refueling operations.
  • Disposal services for slops and sludge, adhering to environmental regulations.
  • Supply of fresh water, potable, for onboard consumption.
  • Availability of dry dock facilities for extensive repairs and maintenance.
  • Comprehensive medical services to ensure the health and safety of the crew.
  • Connection for spares with our own warehouse located at San Roque, ensuring quick and efficient access to necessary parts.
  • Cash to Master (CTM) services, provided both at anchorage and alongside the dock, for operational ease.

These services are designed to ensure the smooth and efficient operation of vessels while docked in Algeciras, covering all essential needs from maintenance to crew welfare.

Ceuta

The port of Ceuta, strategically located on the North African coast at the Strait of Gibraltar, is an advantageous spot for shipping activities, especially for bunkering operations. The port has restrictions of approximately 250 meters in length overall (LOA) and a maximum draft of 10.2 meters.

Ceuta offers competitive port rates and provides versatile bunkering options, including ex-pipe services at berth and the availability of barges for anchorage deliveries. The continuous ferry services from Algeciras, running every hour, facilitate the efficient delivery of spares and enable prompt crew changes when necessary.

There is a notable trend where vessels, particularly those with LOA restrictions that prevent them from bunkering in Algeciras or Gibraltar (usually vessels less than 100 meters in LOA), opt for Ceuta as their bunkering destination due to its capability to supply fuel ex-pipe. This makes Ceuta an attractive alternative for such vessels seeking reliable and efficient bunkering services.

ADVANTAGES

Agility is a key advantage at the last delivery point after the Mediterranean Sea, facilitating the combination of services such as crew changes in Gibraltar and the connection of spares and local supplies at Algeciras OPL. This area is known for being cost-effective, especially as a bunker hub with numerous suppliers, resulting in lower prices compared to other Spanish ports.

As logistic providers, we have our own warehouse strategically located near Algeciras and Gibraltar, enhancing our service capabilities. We also benefit from having customs offices at the Algeciras and Gibraltar border and at Malaga airport, streamlining the customs clearance process for our clients.

Our approach as a proactive service provider ensures first-class service by preventing potential problems before they occur. Additionally, our reactive capabilities mean that when the bunker port changes suddenly from Algeciras to Gibraltar, we can respond swiftly thanks to our presence in both ports, always aiming to provide the most cost-effective solutions for our clients.
