Commercial Quay Area

Comercio Quay

Commerce Quay is a multipurpose wharf devoted to loading and unloading of conventional general cargo. Initially had a 250 m long berthing line with a depth of 9 meters, but it was expanded up to 300 meters by the installation of mooring elements (dolphin) seizing the breakwater of the marina, what have enabled this pier for cruise ships berthing at times of saturation of the specialized Terminal.

Transversal Quay

With a length of 515 m (East and West sides) and 170 m (North side), it has 3 alignments, in which are mainly handled rough granite blocks and other conventional general cargo such as timber, minerals and salt.

Guixar Quay

The development of Guixar basin came along the arrival of the railway, although currently is wholly devoted to container traffic, holding the port's container terminal, given in concession to Termavi. It has 762 m of berthing line and depth over 17 m. These features and a depot area of more than 180,000 m2, make it the main container terminal in the region.

It hosts more than 80 regular maritime services that link Vigo with the main ports of the world, handling more than 200,000 TEUs every year, what makes Vigo the 8th Spanish port in terms of container traffic.

The terminal is highly automated, with advanced software systems. Due to the characteristics of the traffics at the port of Vigo, Guixar terminal is specialised in Reefer containers, with more than 1300 connection points inside the terminal, although all types of container are handled.

The terminal equipment includes 5 container cranes: Feeder, Panamax, Post-panamax and Superpost-Panamax. It also has 7 transtainers of 40 tons and 9 reach stacker of 45 tons.

One of the most important assets of this Terminal comes from its intermodality, as it has direct access to road, highway and the adjacent railway terminal. This ensures an effective link with North, South and Centre of Spain, as well as with Portugal.

Other key feature of the Port located in this area is the container X ray scanner (CSI U.S.A. initiative) and the Megaports project, with its spectroscopic portal monitor, reinforcing the security of the port and all its traffics.
