Subic Bay Freeport Zone – With the increased storage handling capacity, PCSPC is likewise expanding its petroleum receiving and discharging ability with the construction of a new barge loading facility adjacent to the existing POL pier. This new jetty is designed to accommodate smaller vessels ranging from 500 DWT to 6,400 DWT.
In addition, PCSPC began the construction of an additional mooring dolphin (“MDE”) on its existing POL Pier for a safe mooring of vessels with longer Length Over-All (LOA) dimensions. Upon completion, the main POL pier will be able to handle vessels with an LOA of up to 800 feet.
The pier works were started in the first quarter of 2013 and is expected to be completed by year end.
Construction Permits of the new jetty & additional MDE were issued by SBMA on September 24, 2012 & December 10, 2012, respectively.
