The entrance to the Chao Phraya River is marked by the Bangkok bar light beacon situated at Lat, 13° 26' N. Long. 100° 35' E.

Approach

The approach to the port is made through the bar channel which is 18 km in length, 100 metres wide in the reaches and 250 metres wide in the bend. The depth of the river within the port area varies from -8.5m to -11m below MSL. The limiting draught of vessels entering the port is determined by the bar adder plus the depth of water from LLW. The maximum LOA of vessels is 565 ft.

Pilotage

Pilotage within the Chao Phraya River upon entering or leaving the Bangkok Port is compulsory for all vessels.

Berthing

Vessels carrying cargoes and/or passengers must be berthed at the
A meeting for berthing allocation is held daily at 10.00 hours under the chairmanship of Director, Bangkok Port. First come, First served is the PAT regulation offered to vessels calling at the Bangkok Port.

Laem Chabang Port

Laem Chabang Port centers on Thailand's view of the future. With the congested conditions at the Bangkok, plus the port's inability to service large ocean-going container ships, it was a natural development in Thailand's economic expansion to plan a port which would be appropriate to the needs of a high growth economy. This, coupled with the opening up of the countries of Indochina on Thailand's eastern frontiers, made the site at Laem Chabang a perfect place to handle large ocean-going ships while developing the infrastructure in and around the port to service trade with the countries of Indochina.

Location

The Laem Chabang Commercial Port, covering an area of about 1,000 hectares, is located in Sri Racha and Bang Lamung Districts, Cholburi Province, approximately 100 km southeast of Bangkok.

Approach

The anchorage area is centered at position E latitude 13-04-48 N. and longitude 100-51-00 E. WITH HALF A MILE RADIUS. The distance from the sea buoy position latitude 12-43-00 N. longitude 100-44-36 E. to anchorage is 25 miles. No pilots are available from the sea buoy to the anchorage area.


It is suggested that the following normal tracks should be taken when traveling from the sea buoy to the anchorage.


• From sea buoy position A latitude 12-43-00 N. longitude 100-44-36 E. steer TC 360° to position B latitude 12-55-48 N. longitude 100-44-36 E.


• From position B to C latitude 13-02-15 N. longitude 100-46-54 E. steer to TC 020° heading on Ko Tai Ta Mun lighthouse.


• From position C to D latitude 13-04-06 longitude 100-50-00 steer TC 059° across the sandbar heading on the radio tower located on top of the hill in position latitude 13-06.0 N. longitude 100-53.1 E. The radio tower is a conspicuous framework painted in white and red bands. Two conspicuous barracks are close to it.


When maneuvering from position B to position E, which is the center of the anchorage area with radius ? mile, vessel should follow the above normal track. The minimum depth below chart is more than 60 feet. However, after the vessel passes through position C for 2.5 miles there is a SANDBAR AT A DEPTH OF 55 FEET 6 INCHES WHEN LOWEST LOW WATER stretches across the entire channel. A shallow area with a depth of 51 feet at lowest low water is located at 1.7 miles bearing 250° from position D. The center of the shoal is at 13-04.1 N., 100-49.4 E. Once the vessel passes position D there is again deep water to the anchorage.


Vessel drawing more than 50 feet must cross the sandbar at a suitable height of the tide to ensure a safe under keel clearance and should take particular care in keeping to the track or close to the South of it to avoid the shallow area. Passing the sandbar at a rising tide, the current sets a South-North direction. Speed should be reduced prior to reaching position C in order to minimize squat and to maintain a good steerage and maneuverability.


Weather Information

(a) TIDE

The royal Thai Navy tide tables provide hourly forecasts for the height of tide at Kohsichang.
The BA tables give daily forecasts of times and heights of HW and LW at Bangkok Bar.
To obtain Sriracha (Kohsichang) tidal conditions, the following corrections should be applied:
§ Time difference = HW + 3 min. and LW - 11 min.

§ Height difference = HW + 0.1 meter and LW - 0.2 meter

(b) CURRENT

According to the morphology of the coastal area the main direction of the current runs more or less parallel to the shoreline in a North-South direction. The flood current is from South to North with a mean rate of 0.2-0.5 meter/sec., the egg current is from North to South and the mean rate is 0.1+0.3 meter/sec. South West monsoon flows from June to October.

(c) WAVES

In stormy weather the maximum height of waves into the jetty is 2.5 meters at a wave period of 6 seconds.

(d) WINDS

Predominant direction
November to January North, East and Variable
February to March South and East
April Variable
June to October South West Monsoon.


Anchorage

A circle centered in 13-04.8 N., 100-51.0 E. with a ? mile radius is defined as the anchorage area where vessels await for pilot, mooring Master or berthing instructions. The depth there is approximately 18 meters with good holding ground of mud and sand.


Pilotage

The pilot station is located in the small village of Ban Ao Udom. VHF channel 16 is always monitored. The pilot uses a service boat to board arriving vessels or vessels at anchorage.


Services

a) BUNKERS

All bunkers are available by barge at the anchorage area only. Quantities of bunkers are usually limited unless advance notice of requirement is given. It is suggested to obtain confirmation of bunkering needs upon arrival. Failure to do so may cause cancellation or delay in supplying the requirement.

b) FRESH WATER

Available by barge and under the same conditions as for bunkering. Minimum order is 200 tons and delivery rate is approximately 30 tons/hour.

c) REPAIRS

Only minor repairs can be carried out by local workshops or by Bangkok's facilities. Advance notice is necessary since spare parts are difficult to obtain.

d) STORES AND PROVISIONS

Available by giving 48 hours notice. Fresh provisions are available in ample quantities and are of good quality. Deck/engine stores are usually available in reasonable quantities. However, selection is limited.

e) HOSPITALIZATION

Doctor, dentist and hospitalization are available.

f) REPATRIATION

Repatriation via Bangkok is available. Advance notice on crewmember's particulars is required.

g) SHORE LEAVE

Shore leave is permitted. No passes are required.

h) TUGS

Two tugs are required for mooring and unmooring operations
