The territory is divided into two parts. The first one is a restricted area for authorized berthing of foreign-flag ships. It consists of pier No. 2 with a length of 180 m and a width of 15 m. Depth at the pier 7.5 m allows to handle vessels with deadweight of up to 7,500 tons. This includes the berth No. 26 (length 90 m, depth of berth 4.5 m) and berth No.31 (length 82 m, depth of berth 4.5 m), where it is allowed to berth the vessels with deadweight of up to 3,000 tons and 2,000 tons respectively.
