Port Melville

Port Melville’s floating concrete wharf was commissioned in 2013. Situated in the sheltered waters of Apsley Strait, it provides 220 metres of berth face and has a 14 metre minimum depth alongside.

The wharf is able to accommodate offshore support vessels, barges and handy-sized tankers and bulkers up to 50,000 tonnes.

Aside from the main wharf, the facility comprises a landing barge ramp, a common user area, a container storage, bulk fuel storage and bunkering capability as well as a woodchip stockpile and associated loading systems.

A berth reservation system applies at Port Melville, enabling vessels with prior bookings to have priority over those without reservations. Vessels without bookings may be allowed to berth with the approval of the Harbour Master, generally in order of arrival, pending berth availability. Priority may be granted to any type of vessel in cases of emergency and in the public interest.

Port Melville is operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Pilotage to / from anchor and departures from berth will be conducted day or night. Arrivals to berth will only be conducted in daylight hours.
