DISCLAIMER
• Informatively, there are no mooring buoys at inside Haldia Dock. Therefore, whenever a vessel has to wait for whatever reasons, Port Authority requires the vessel to be double banked. Since the vessel has to be double banked against another vessel at berth, it is quite impossible to ascertain in advance whether double banking will be ordered in case of a particular vessels since the vessels working at berth may at any time be required to accept another vessel to double bank against her. A vessel berthing inside Haldia Dock is required to have 7-8 pcs old truck tyres with PP rope on board as fenders to be used during double banking. Between the 2 vesselss, 14-16 truck tyres provide adequate protection during double banking. This is a normal and everyday operation at Haldia Port and is well known to most of National/International vessels Owners/Operators.

• Hence all vessels inside the dock are requested to have sufficient fenders to protect the shipside from chaffing of paints.

• Further Port authority also provides the Pneumatic rubber fender during waiting time at inside port against the charge as per tariff.

• The requirement of B/L , PNI Entry Certificate with Wreck removal n oil pollution clause, ISM Code, ISS cert & Crew List, Ships Registry, cert of Class, PAN in standard 5 pages format , Intl Tonnage cert is required in advance.
