Access Zira Port
The construction of Passenger Terminal is planned for handling incoming vessels and crews. Passenger Terminal will provide functional spaces/amenities for different demands of the passengers. Passenger terminal includes areas like waiting lobbies with sofas and chairs, boarding gates for simultaneous check-in process, amenities such as comfort rooms, doctor room, canteens, security area and etc. The terminal will help the port authorities to manage issues regarding the growing number of passengers and to improve the quality of service provided.
The goal is to organize the circulation of the passenger inside the terminal, to provide passengers safe and sound structure that can rest on an area near the sea, a place that can accommodate the passengers, a comfortable space to stay in while waiting, a place where the passengers can secure their belongings, a place where they can get an easy access of transportation going home, a shelter that can protect them from different types of weather and organize the basic operations happening in the port.
The passenger terminal will be located in the south of the premises; near the jetty area for providing close-range safe access to vessels and key side area. Upon entering the seaport, the asphalt road leads directly to the terminal entrance. Designated parking spaces are available for 14 cars with emergency parking nearby the terminal entrance. The terminal will have 2 access/egress points on the west and east side of the building which will allow for a simultaneous check-in process. After the check-in process the crew members will proceed to the main waiting area where they can rest and wait till the boarding. The waiting hall is also wide enough to conduct HSE Procedures indoors. The main waiting area will be equipped with leather sofas and airport type chairs for a total of 140 people. Upon hearing the announcement, the crews under the supervision will proceed to the main gate for boarding.
General Cargo Terminal
Cargo Terminal had been designed for the transportation of dry and containerized liquid cargos in the Caspian Sea. Cargo is unloaded on the east side of the jetty area by 4 port cranes. Each container is then identified, listed, documented and transported to the far north end of the premises to be stored. Cargo terminal is currently operative and the transportation of the cargos is mostly managed through the countryside highways. Our future plans to construct a 13 km railway will increase the current transportation capacity up to 1 million tons a year. The railway will be linked to the premises and will significantly accelerate the cargo delivery.
Liquid and Bulk Terminal
Clinker, cement, minerals and other dry bulk commodities can be discharged directly from vessels to railcars or trucks at the Bulk Temrinal of Zira Port.. This facility can also be used to load vessels when special handling is required.
Bulk Terminal, which is operated by the Zira Port Authority, is located in the Inner Harbor of Zira Port. Road access is has been separated for safe reliable operations. A certified rail track scale is located convenient to the Bulk Terminal for accurate weighing of railcars. Rail service is provided by the ADY. This terminal is designed to ensure high throughput capacity of dry bulk cargo and to utilize at the same time the best available technologies in environmental protection.
Liquid Terminal is planned and will be available to support oil and gas industry of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
The RoRo terminal in Zira Port Marine Industrial Complex has been designed to receive all types of RoRo type vessels currently operated in the Caspian Sea. The seaport Zira Port is located in a strategically compelling side of Baku peninsula to save time on Caspian voyages.
