Technical characteristics

122-hectare surface area and a 2,575-metre quayline with draughts of between 17.5 and 18.5 metres. Added to this is a 2 km-plus detached breakwater that ensures great flexibility for megaship manoeuvres.


The container terminal on Isla Verde exterior at the Port of Algeciras Bay is run by TTI-A (Total Terminal International Algeciras). It began operations in 2010 as a common user terminal on the 35-hectare Phase A, running two quays of 550 and 850 metres, respectively.

Isla Verde Exterior Quay houses Vopak Terminal Algeciras’ hydrocarbon and liquid bulk storage and distribution terminal. It has a 403,000m3 storage capacity with 22 tanks and a pier for ships of up to 225,000 tons DW.

The fitting-out project for Phase B is currently under way and is set to add another 2 million TEUs to the current 5-million TEU capacity of the port as a whole.

Vopak’s new expansion project is set to see their nominal storage capacity grow by an extra 880,803m3 with 36 more tanks planned to be built, making a grand total of 1,286,649m3 storage volume. At the same time, three new berthing points have been planned in the project, including all the required auxiliary equipment and pipework to load and unload tankers from the pier.
