Rades, Tunisia (PortSEurope) October 9, 2020 – Repair of the oil wharf located on the south bank of the port of Radès has just been completed for a sum of 9.5 million dinars. The 9.7-metre draught structure allows tankers of 25,000 tons and 160 meters in length to berth. After connecting to electricity, water and fire protection networks, the services of the Merchant Marine and
Ports Office made this wharf available to the installed oil companies and for the finalization of the installation of the pipes and pumping facilities necessary for the operation of this wharf. The port of Radès processes an average of 700,000 tons of petroleum product per year. The port of Radès occupies an important place in the national transport chain due to its specialization in the traffic of containers and rolling units (mainly the traffic of trailers). Rades handles 21% of the overall traffic, 79% of the tonnage of containerized goods, 76% of the tonnage of goods loaded in rolling units, 76% of the container traffic in TEUs, 80% of the traffic of rolling units and 18 % of vessel traffic recorded in all Tunisian commercial ports.
