Vessel Restrictions

    • Maximum Length Overall – 180 meters (590.4 feet). Note: The length of a vessel from the most forward edge of the most forward hold to be loaded cannot be more than 157.9 meters (518 feet) in order to be properly moored
    • Maximum Beam – 23 meters (75.4 feet)
    • Maximum air draft – 52 feet minus the river stage at Reserve, Louisiana.
    • The port side hatch opening cannot be more than 58 feet from the dock for spout trimming. Charges for machine trimming will be invoiced to the customer
    • Vessels of different dimensions may be accepted subject to the terminal’s prior approval. Certain tween-deckers will be rejected due to the vessel’s design. The terminal reserves the right to reject any vessel that would prevent loading or proper stowage.

Docking Restrictions

    • Vessels cannot be moored to port side.
    • Vessels are loaded port to starboard requiring the vessel to shift at the dock with ship’s gear.
    • Vessels with port or starboard side cranes or derricks cannot be loaded to 100% capacity without trimming. NOTE: Charges for machine trimming will be invoiced to the customer.

Stowage Factor

48 cubic feet per long ton.


Rain CII Carbon LLC will supply 4 linesmen to receive a ship. It would be best, for both parties, if the lines were placed in such a way to minimize the moving of them when shifting from one hold to another. Vessels must have a minimum of four headlines, four spring lines (two forward and two aft), and three stern lines to be properly moored to the dock.

Coke Cargo

    • Angle of repose – the angle of repose is approximately 35 degrees
    • Temperature – the calcined coke will be loaded into the vessel according to the Code of Federal Regulations, Coast Guard, Department of Transportation (46 CFR 148.04-15 and 148.04-17)

Loading Rate



The GT dock facility operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There is one man operating the loader and a supervisor on the terminal site during loading. The product is loaded through a fixed-point loader. It is necessary to shift the vessel to trim and to load holds. The ship must supply the manpower to watch the loading from the deck and to keep track of the draft (i.e. tell the loader when enough cargo is in the hold).

Facility Security

The vessel’s agent is required to provide a crew/passenger and gate list to the terminal manager 24 hours in advance of the vessels arrival. The crew/passenger list is to be faxed to (225-869-8151). Vessel personnel are not permitted access to the dock facility without prior approval from the terminal manager.

Deliveries and Vessel Stores

Transport and delivery of vessel stores are not permitted through the facility. Deliveries of vessel stores must be coordinated between vessel personnel and the vessels agent via launch service not provided by the terminal.

Dock Services

A supply source of potable water is available at the dock.
