This is a reinforced concretequay, 154 m long, depth alongside 5,50 m (18 ft). At datum built especially to permit the Export of cold rolled coils and sheets from the adjacent steel mil owned by SIDERAR. The berth is situated 5 km along the Río Santiago and a 360 m diameter turning basin has been dredged some 600 m off the berth. The channel from Cuatro Bocas to the berth is unlit and therefore Navigation is limited to daytime only. The berth is fitted with two rail mounted cranes of 30 ton SWL and 16 m outreach. Large, prong-fitted, forklift trucks are used to handle the coils on the quay and in the holds if necessary. All stevedoring and lashing are carried out by private firms personnel, however the Chief Tally Clerk is considered as being for ships account. As a ready guide, a gauge showing the depth of water alongside is affixed to the end of the quay. Hot rolled coils for use at the mill are also occasionally discharged. During 2011 no cargo movement where registred.
