Rostock Port is in Rostock, Germany. It handles coal.
The port is is in the western part of the Baltic Sea, at the mouth of the Warrow river.
The port handled 7 million tonnes of dry bulk cargo in 2017. The coal terminal has a capacity of 240,000 tonnes of hard coal. A daily volume of up to 20,000 tonnes of coal can be discharged at berths 23 and 24. Conveyor belts supply the neighboring 553 MW Rostock power station, as well as additional recipients.
The rebuilding of berth 23, which is 270 metres long, was largely completed by the end of 2019. During the first three months of 2020, further work will be done on paving of surfaces and railway track construction as well as dredging to a water depth of 14.50 metres. Full completion is planned until April 2020. In the course of the building work the load-bearing capacity of the quay surface is increased from two to five tonnes per square meter. In the middle of pier III a storage area with a capacity of 300,000 tons of anthracite coal exists. Conveyor belts carry the coal to the adjacent 500 MW hard coal-fired power station.
