Tug ARIES seen on a morning of bad/stormy weather at the Adriatic Gate Container Terminal (AGCT), Rijeka
31 January 2014

This photo well demonstrates how the AGCT Rijeka container terminal is exposed to open sea & big waves during bad weather conditions.
On this photo the tug ARIES is seen almost by the containerships' berth (the 'orange' structure to the right is the "leg" of the container crane on the berth)

You are very right for sure, Bob !!! last winter we had Bura (the North wind) blowing even 78 km/h measured in Center of Rijeka city and the Bura blowing 210 km/h measured on the bridge to Island of Krk (this bridge is only 13 km air distance SE from Rijeka),, the worst is the so called "Crna Bura" (Crna = Black)...
Thank you for your comment, Bob, by well recalling your memories and explaining your experience!
Remaining with very best regards from today mild autumn sunny Rijeka,

Back in the 1980s, on a working visit to the shipyards of Yugoslavia (all of which are now in Croatia), I experienced the Bura wind. Quite a blow it was!

Emmanuel,, the fact that AGCT, Rijeka container terminal is exposed to the open sea does not create, in general, greater difficulties for mooring/unmooring of the containerships, neither for loading/unloading containers while ship at the berth, due to bad weather conditions when such occur from time to time.
Within a number of passed years, I can recall that only on two (2) occasions the mooring of containerships was interrupted by bad weather (strong South winds) that have as consequence the big waves:
1. on 25/12/2013 late afternoon: the containership CMA CGM LAMARTINE (IMO 9409194) had to stay overnight on anchorage & wait in front of the container terminal; on 26/12/2013 late morning , as the storm was calming down, the containership raised its anchor and continued towards the container terminal to be moored;
2. on 31/01/2014 morning: the containership MAERSK KAWASAKI (IMO 9107887) had to wait on anchorage for 5 hours before the big waves calmed down and the sea conditions became feasible for mooring of the vessel;
Kind regards /Jadran

Hi Jad, great stormy weather picture, I remember you showing me this photo, Does this situation occurs frequently ,so in this kind of adverse weather, do ships tie up and unload/load containers?

Thank you very much for the compliment, Brett... I'm glad that you like this my photo (the 'original' version),, though Vlad's 'version' seems "photographically" even more admirable, I can honestly say!
Kind regards /Jadran
