Industrial bulk terminal

Carrying industrial dry bulk and liquids represent more than 2 million annual tons in the bulk sector.

Industrial bulk is transported or exported in vessels of up to 260 m long 13.50 m draft which load or unload up to 60 000 tonnes at each stop.

The importance of the industrial port of Sète is evidenced by the presence of many French and international industriel groups anchored close to or directly installed on its terminals. Among the main, we must mention: Lafarge, Timac Agro, Sibelco, British Petroleum and Sea Invest. ..

The port of Sète has a terminal to process large industrial flows through storage platforms, distribution, a conveyor-belt network and modern machinery. The bulk terminal can process a diverse range of products such as petroleum and chemicals, fertiliser, coke, coal, ash, bauxites, carbonates, or various bulk destined for the recycling industry.

The new wharf overlooking the southern part (dock H2) will be dedicated to the cement sector (delivery in 2016), investment that adds to those already made: acquisition of a new mobile crane with capacity of 120 tons, purchase of two Eurocrane new cranes with a capacity of 20 tons each and modernisation of the bulk terminal with its conveyor belt network.
