Vessels proceeding through the harbour entrance arrive directly in the Zeehavenkanaal. Going westwards, the Zeehavenkanaal gradually narrows. Handelshaven is accessed via this 6km long Zeehavenkanaal. The north side of this canal consists of a breakwater, where 14 of Delfzijl’s total of 19 wind turbines generate green energy. To its south there are various loading and unloading facilities for the purpose of transhipping chemical products or raw materials for the chemical industry. Established industries like Klesch Aluminium Delfzijl, JPB Logistics and AkzoNobel Base Chemicals have private mooring facilities in the Zeehavenkanaal area. These jetties and berths are located along the Zeehavenkanaal in such a way that the channel width of 100 metres, except near the Akzo jetty, is not affected.
