Draft restrictions at San Nicolas port

There has been a recent change in draft restrictions for the access channel to San Nicolas New Port / Fiscal berths to 8.2m (subject to daily height of the river.) Our correspondent in Argentina advises Members and their Masters to discuss draft restrictions with their agents when calling San Nicolas port.

Reportedly, various Pilots would have been complaining that vessels were touching bottom when entering to the New Port of San Nicolas. Therefore, the Port Administration carried out a sounding survey which showed the following results:

Place: Access channel to Port of San Nicolas
Place of restriction: Km 1,050 -1,150
Depth at Cero level:
In channel’s width 150M: 6.80M
In channel’s width 100M: 6.90M
Source: bathymetric chart issued on 06/07/2018
