In the Vado Ligure harbour, Sarpom operates a buoy field located around 0.7 miles from the coast, where oil tankers up to 316,000 tons DWT can moor.
Two underwater pipelines convey the oil to 7 on-shore tanks (overall capacity 360,000 m3) from where it reaches the Trecate refinery, through a 146 km 20” oil pipeline.
Over 7 million t of crude oil are unloaded each year from an average of 80 ships coming from various loading harbours.
