Larne Port Multi purpose cargo port in Northern Ireland.
Larne Port is so much more than a ferry port! It is already the port of choice for many project cargoes, particularly those associated with the offshore and renewables sector. It has direct access to the sea via a short pilotage (<2 nm) and a well marked, deep water channel, with no locks nor height restrictions.
With 50,000m2 of hard standing (26t sqm) that is immediately available for component storage and a reinforced berth capable of taking loads of 18T sqm, the port can accommodate a range of projects, including those that require lifting and storage of heavy lifts from jack-up ships. In addition to jacking up on the deep water berth’s firm sea bed, such vessels have been permitted, upon request, to berth perpendicularly to the quay, as well as carry out ship to ship transfers, in what are relatively sheltered waters, away from any passing commercial vessel traffic.
There is direct access to the province’s motorway network via the port’s main gate and ‘wide-load entrance’, which allows for the import of components destined for onshore windfarms, if required.
