General conditions

A fee for merchant vessels arriving to the city of Kaskinen´s harbour area is charged according to this tariff.
The fee is based on register tonnage and is calculated according to the    vessel ´s net tonnage certificate.
If the net tonnage in the harbour changes, the highest net tonnage that has been used will be applicable. 
If a vessel in port shifts from domestic to international traffic or vice versa, the vessel fee will be charged as for international traffic.
To determine the billing grounds, the vessel´s master or agent is obliged to provide a vessel notification according to the port regulations.
The payment of vessel fee entitles to a 30 day continuous stay within the harbour area.
The vessel fee can be adjusted or totally waived due to special reasons.

Fee for cargo vessels and passenger vessels

The vessel fee is 0,54 €/net tonnage

Minimum fee is 300 €
Passenger vessels in regular time-table based traffic for a minimum duration of three months and which transport mainly passengers are granted a 40 % reduction on the vessel fees.

Minimum fee is 250 €.

Passenger cruise vessels calling at the port without embarking or disembarking passengers, are subject to a 50 % reduction of the vessel fee if moored or a 75 % reduction if anchored.

Minimum fee is 300 €.

Fee for tugboats and combined tugboat barges

For tugboats temporarily visiting the harbour area, the fee is charged as per maximum length as follows:

Length under 15 m 65 €
Length 15 – 30 m 130 €

Length over 30 m 165 €

For combined tugboat barges, the fee is charged according to the combination´s total net tonnage.

Fees for laid-up vessels

The fee for laid-up vessels and vessels used as warehouses will be based on a separate agreement between the shipowner and the Port of Kaskinen Ltd.



Domestic waste

Domestic waste originating from vessels must be sorted according to sorting directives. There are different sorting containers on the quay for different types of waste. However, the domestic waste disposal charge is not applied to vessels which through agreement are committed to self-arrangement for their waste disposal. If a vessel, to which an exemption has been granted, leaves waste originating from the vessel in the port, the vessel/shipowner will be charged double for unsorted waste. The charge is based on the net tonnage of the vessel. The waste disposal charge is calculated by multiplying the waste fee by the net tonnage.

Cargo vessels are charged a waste disposal fee of 0,11 €/net tonnage. The minimum fee is 110 €.

Disposal fee for vessel generated oliferous waste

According to the Finnish Transport Safety Agency directive the vessel is obligated to give a 24 h pre-port arrival waste notification to the Port of Kaskinen. If the voyage time from the previous port is less than 24 h, the waste notification has to be given immediately upon departure. The fee is charged on every vessel visiting the port, regardless if the vessel is disposing oliferous waste or not. The oliferous waste disposal fee is not charged on vessels that have a certificate granted by the Finnish Transport Safety Agency giving the right to deviate from regulations concerning the compulsory disposal of waste.

A vessel exempted from compulsory disposal of waste may still dispose oliferous waste in the port, but will be a charged a fee equalling the actual cost of emptying the tanks. If the vessel has not dispatched the waste notification prior to the arrival and still wants to dispose oliferous waste, the charged fee will be equivalent to the actual costs. If the disposed waste amount exceeds the notified amount, the resulting additional costs will be charged according to the actual costs.

The waste disposal fee of oliferous waste from cargo vessels is 0,12 € per unit of net tonnage. The minimum fee is 135 €.


Vessel´s hazardous waste will be charged according to the costs incurred.


Mooring fees

Fees for mooring and unmooring are charged separately 0,08€/net tonnage

The minimum fee is 120 € / 160 € (Sat. 00.00 –Mon. 06.00 )/operation.

The vessel´s largest net tonnage is always used as a charging ground if there are two tonnage measurements.

For vessel hauling along the quay, only mooring fee is charged. For other transfer of vessels, both mooring and unmooring fees are charged.

Vessel hauling is free of charge, when it is executed on the request of the Port Authority.

During weekends and holidays an additional 30 % charge is applied (Sat. 00.00-Mon. 06.00)

No bonuses or reductions are applied on mooring and unmooring fees.
