OFFSHORE TERMINALS FOR 250,000 TON ORE CARRIERS

A review of marine installations being engineered by Soros Asso. indicates that out of 12 terminals for 250,000-dwt bulk carriers in the planning, design or construction stage, eight are located in the open sea. Their distance from the shore is up to 3 miles. Other terminals, designed by the firm for smaller ships, are up to 8 miles from shore. The engineering details, operational features and economic aspects of the various terminals are examined. Criteria for location and design of different types are discussed.
