Operations and port services

The Port services are the provision activities needed to ensure the running of the Port, aimed at enabling the operations associated with maritime traffic to be carried out in conditions of safety, efficiency, regularity, continuity and non-discrimination. They are classified into:

 

Nautical Services

 

 

Piloting service

 

This is an advisory service for captains of vessels and floating equipment, provided on board these, to aid their entry into and exit from the Port and the nautical manoeuvres within this and the geographical limits of the area of pilot services, in conditions of safety and under the terms established in the Law concerning ports, in the regulatory rule of this service and in the schedule of particular specifications.

 

 

Port tug service

 

Its purpose is the nautical operation of helping a vessel to manoeuvre, called tugging, following the instructions provided by its captain, with the aid of another vessel or other vessels, called tugs, that provide the traction, or, where appropriate, the support or availability within the limits of the waters included in the Port service area.

 

 

Mooring and unmooring service

 

Its function is to pick up a vessel’s mooring lines, take them and attach them to the elements arranged on the docks or moorings for this purpose, following the instructions of the vessel's captain, in the mooring sector designated by the Port Authority, and in the order and layout convenient for facilitating docking unmooring and undocking operations. The unmooring service is understood as being the function whose aim is to detach the mooring lines of a vessel from the fixing elements to which it is moored, following the sequence and instructions provided by the captain and without affecting the conditions of the vessels moored next to it.
