Blyde Terminal is an integrated cargo handling facility based around a terminal operation on the Blyde complex. It caters for conventionally handled general and refrigerated cargoes.
Blyde Wharf has an overall length of 420 metres and features two major berths, each with a maximum vessel capacity of 225 metres. A third berth is generally used by vessels servicing offshore oil and gas production operations. Bunkering facilities have been established on Blyde 3 with fresh water and diesel oil bunkers available through 100mm lines. The wharf also offers "heavy lift" capabilities.
Major features of Blyde Terminal include wharfside cold storage, 30,000 tonnes of dry storage, 432 reefer plugs and 5,000 teu of other container storage. The terminal also offers extensive lay down areas, computer-based tracking systems and full container depot services.
A 4,500 tonnes capacity cold store is situated opposite Blyde No1 berth. A large dry store adjacent to the berths can accommodate 24,000 tonnes of milk powder or other dry dairy produce and any other dry cargoes that are compatible with milk powder.
