Port Facility

One of the unique features of Calaca Seaport is that it has its own port facility that caters to the shipping requirements of its locators and other shippers in the vicinity. Calaca Seaport operates an ISPS-compliant, multi-purpose port facility capable of accommodating up to 60,000 DWT vessels with draft of 14 meters. The port caters to both domestic and international cargoes composed mainly of petroleum products, coal, salt in bulk, steel billets, industrial chemicals and molasses.

With the growth from the existing locators and the forthcoming volumes of prospective locators, Calaca Seaport will complete in 2017 the expansion of its port facility at Phase I that will increase the pier deck by another 70 meters from the existing 192 meters, and construct additional breasting dolphins and mooring dolphins. With this development, the port facility at Phase I will be able to handle two handymax vessels with length over all (LOA) of 200 meter each at the same time at its outer berths.

Aside from its Phase I Port Facility, Calaca Seaport also has an L-shaped port facility at Phase II with a pier deck of 120m x 18m equipped with fenders, bollards, lighting facilities, mooring dolphins and trestle access for vehicles. It is equipped with hoppers, conveyor system and sprinklers that can discharge coal shipments of South Luzon Thermal Energy Corp. (SLTEC) at the pier deck direct to its coal yards for faster discharging and environment-friendly operations. The port is International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code Compliant with the Department of Transportation and Communication – Office of the Transportation Security (DOTC-OTS).
