Water supply and its rate

Water supply to vessels

The shipping representative should declare the request for water services to ships represented by him with mentioning the amount of required water to the specialist in charge/specialist of marine operations.

Water services to:

-          Iranian-flagged ships

-          Foreign-flagged ships

To pay for the water required for the Iranian-flagged ships, the shipping representative must get the bank account number and the amount of fees from the marine operations unit and pay the price. For foreign-flagged vessels that have a request for water, the sufficient deposit for the request must be approved by the financial affairs.

Water services to the Iranian-flagged ships:

-          The shipping representative should submit the request for water service along with a copy of the bank receipt of the amount deposited to the Port Authority's account to the marine operations unit.

-          The marine operations unit must make arrangements with the water barge and traffic control of the port.

-          After water supply, the barge water staff must submit the receipt of water delivered to the ship to the marine operations unit.

-          Finally, the marine operations unit sends the receipt of water delivered to the ship to the financial unit.

Water services to foreign-flagged vessels:

-          The shipping representative should submit the water supply request approved by the financial unit to the marine operations unit.

-          The marine operations unit must make arrangements with the water barge and traffic control center of the port.

-          After water supply, the water barge personnel must submit the receipt of water delivered to the ship to the marine operations unit.

-          The marine operation unit should send the receipt of water delivered to the ship to the financial unit for registration in the ship statement form.

Note: If water supply is done out of the docks in the port for Iranian and foreign ships, the performance report of the water supply barge and tugs is sent by the marine operations unit to the financial unit.

Water pricing tariff

The water pricing tariff is calculated according to the following formula:

Shipping costs (harbor or dock) + water supply cost (tariff of the Bushehr Water and Sewerage Organization or desalination) = Water pricing tariff for Iranian ships

- Water pricing tariff for foreign ships is 50 percent higher than Iranian ships in foreign currency.
