Berth assignment: Priority is given based on the vessel’s arrival to Nueva Palmira roads. Notwithstanding, berthing priority is subject to the decision of the respective berth managers, according to the availability of cargo and export documentation. When the vessel arrives at Montevideo Pilot Station, two specialized pilots will board to assist during her navigation up river to Nueva Palmira.

Even though Nueva Palmira`s terminal does not have restrictions on to Panamax size vessels, Martin Garcia Canal has a navigation draft up to 9,75 mts. An alternative for vessels exceeding the indicated draft is to navigate through Argentinean waters in Emilio Mitre Canal where the draft is 10,05 mts, up to Common Zone. In case this option applies, please be aware that Argentinean River Pilots must do the navigation.

** Please confirm the draft levels with the agency prior to your operation, since they may change during seasons.
