Facilities:

Ore, coal, coke terminal: There are 13 berths for the handling of ores, coal and coke of which 4 are specialised berths for the transhipment of bulk cargo from seagoing vessels into barges for transportation via the Danube-Black Sea Canal.
The discharging of cargo from ships is performed by 3 gantry cranes of 50-52t and 6 gantry cranes of 20t each. The handling from land into barges is performed by 3 loaders with capacities of 1,200 to 2,000tph. There are also quay cranes, floating cranes, conveyers and stacker reclaimers for the stockpile. The total storage capacity is 4,500,000t.
 Terminal for chemical products, fertilisers, urea, phosphate and apatite: There are 10 berths equipped with 2 gantry cranes of 25t each for discharging of phosphate and apatite and 2 gantry cranes of 200-250tph capacity for bulk fertilisers. There are also quay cranes, mobile cranes, stackers. Phosphate and apatite are stored in a covered silo with a capacity of 30,000t and other dry bulk chemicals are stored on an open platform of 30,000m2. Packed chemical products are stored in 8 covered warehouses with a total capacity of 48,000t.
 Terminal for building materials: There are 8 berths for the handling of cement and building materials. The handling is performed with 2 pneumatic equipments of 250-300tph, quay cranes, mobile cranes, a floating loader for the transhipment of bulk cement from barges into vessels (capacity of 2,000t per 24 hours) A bagging installation is also available.
 Terminal for cereals: There are 6 specialised berths in the North Port and 2 berths in the South Port with a max depth of 14.5m for the handling of grains. Loading/unloading of grains is performed with 5 pneumatic pumps of 100tph each, 2 pneumatic unloaders of 150tph, 2 loading/unloading units of 400tph, 1 loading/unloading unit of 800tph, 1 loading unit of 800tph, quay cranes, conveyor belts, floating elevators and floating cranes.
 Oil terminal: There are 9 berths with depths between 11.5m and 14m and one berth of 17.5m depth which allows the accommodation of tankers up to 165,000dwt. The oil berths have coupling installation with a diameter of 12in and 16in (Woodfield and Flexider), equipment for fire fighting and pollution fighting (skimmer, booms, etc).
 Terminal for edible oil and molasses: There is 1 berth with a length of 113m and depth of 8.3m. The edible oil is discharged by pipes into 7 tanks of 25,000t each and molasses is discharged from vessels into tank wagons.
 Container terminal: Containers are handled by 3 container terminals and from September 2003, a state-of-the-art container terminal, with an initial handling capacity of 325,000teu, has started operations allowing the port to handle Panamax and post-Panamax container vessels. There are 5 berths for the handling of containers with depths of 13.5 to 14.5m. Container handling is performed with 2 gantry cranes of 40.7t each, 2 x 100t Liebherr mobile cranes, 2 x 32t transtainers, side loaders, forklifts and 20t trailers, and reachstackers.
 Ro-Ro terminal: The port has 2 Ro-Ro terminals, one situated in the North Port with a berth length of 364m, 13m depth and 2 parking areas for 2,000 (1.7ha) vehicles and 2,800 (2.5ha) respectively. The other terminal is situated in the South Port comprising of Berth No 121 with a length of 214m, 14.5 depth and parking for 1,800 vehicles (1.5ha).

There are around 40 berths for the handling of general cargo. Handling is performed with quay cranes, mobile cranes, forklifts, trailers of various capacities etc.

 Storage:
The storage surface for general cargo is approximately 220ha of which 30ha are covered (warehouses and sheds) and 190ha uncovered platforms.
There are also specialised storage facilities; 3 grain silos of 30,000t each and a new grain silo of 100,000t; cement bin of 40,000t; storage facilities for phosphate and urea of 30,000t and 30,000t respectively; 7 tanks of 25,000t each for edible oil; tanks for crude oil, refined products, petrochemical products with a total capacity of 1,700,000m3, refrigerated storage for 10,000t, stockpile for 3,500,000t of coal, coke and ores.

 Barges:
There are various types of barges available (3,000t; 2,000t; 1,500t; 1,000t capacity), which are used for the transport of solid bulk such as ore, coal, coke, phosphate, apatite, cement, rolled metals, grains and of liquid bulk, mainly oil.

 Ballast/slop reception:
There is a vessel for the collection of oil residues with a capacity of 400m3 and a storage tank located on the shore with a capacity of 900m3. The removal of ballast and slops is subject to the Harbour Master's approval.
