The Port of
Szczecin is one of three principal seaports in Poland, situated at the estuary
of the Odra River in the Szczecin Lagoon, 65 km away from the open sea (Lat.
53° 25' N, Long. 14°32' E).
Swinoujscie-Szczecin fairway consists of several dredged channel sections
(Kanal Mielenski, Kanal Piastowski, Zalew Szczecinski and Roztoka Odrzanska)
and the Odra River, which is 9.15 metres deep along the
centreline, 100 m wide and has a mass density of 1,000 t/m3.
There are no
tides at the port, but the wind can cause sudden variations in the
water levels at Zalew Szczecinski, with winds from the North-West
/ North-East occassionally seeing the water levels rise
by 1.0 metre and the winds from the South-West
/ South-East, causing them to fall around 0.6 m, compared to the mean
port boasts 19.5 km of quays, including 8 km of cranage facilities
and can accommodate vessels up to 215 m in length.
The port and approaching channels are ice-free during most of
the winter, with only prolonged and severe frosts resulting in ice
formation. Gale force winds may shift drifting ice flows and render
navigation in the Szczecin lagoon difficult. However in such cases, the
approach channel and port basins are kept unobstructed by icebreakers.
