Limfjordskaj I - DKTYB-0003
Terminal for gravel sorting - Kaj 2003, 2004
Cargo terminal dedicated to marine rubble
Close cooperation creates the best facilities, and Limfjordskaj I is a great example of this. The quay was built in 2007 in close cooperation with raw material suppliers, for the purpose of sorting and preparing marine rubble from Jyske Rev.
Thyboron is currently Denmark’s largest gravel handling port. Gravel operations date back to 1996, when they moved into the port after samples were taken of gravel quality at Jyske Rev in the North Sea. The gravel is high quality and very popular in the concrete and construction industry, for building roads, buildings, bridges and tunnels in Denmark and other European countries such as Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium.
Today, 100,000 m2 of quayside land houses two raw material suppliers – Thyborøn Nordsø Ral A/S and Kroghs A/S – who supply gravel to the construction industry in Denmark and abroad.
Vessels have easy access to supplies while in port, and waiting times are minimised, as the companies work together and coordinate their deliveries.
Easy access conditions for front-end loaders
When a ship arrives carrying gravel, the large machines have easy access for collecting the gravel for sorting. The quayside land has been set up as a customer-specific solution.
The volume varies from year to year. Between 1.3 and 1.5 million tonnes of sand and gravel are handled at the Port of Thyboron each year.
Room for multiple vessels at a time
The large marine rubble dredgers need plenty of space, both in front of and behind the quay. The turning area also has to be large, and is 200 metres in diameter at Limfjordskaj I.
The vessels do not have time to wait for a berth to become vacant. They are equipped to place the gravel far in on the quay. This provides some flexibility for multiple vessels to be unloaded simultaneously, or for unloading while another vessel is being loaded.
Quay with adjacent land for sorting gravel
Two gravel companies have been established at the port facility in Thyboron, each with their own land and logistics setup, with a sorting system and storage.
The operations require a lot of space, and Limfjordskaj I provides this with 100,000 m2 of adjacent land.
ISPS-compliant port area
Limfjordskaj I is located in an ISPS-compliant area of the port with gate access. The companies can therefore work safely and without disruption in this area with their large front-end loaders, and store their final products.
Quick access from quay to road
The terminal is right next to the main road. There is easy road access and no town centre to pass.
Final products are being increasingly shipped to customers by sea, but it offers good flexibility to also have easy and safe access for trucks.
