VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE:

Please bear in mind that there are two critical paths within San Lorenzo with huge gap on depths:

KM 449 - PASO BELLA VISTA   10.37 MTRS (**)
KM 335 - CORTADA ISLA NUEVA 10.41 MTRS 

Vessels under sailing manoeuvre from following Terminals:
Akzo Nobel (km 443) - Vicentin (km 442) - Aca (km 446.2) - San Benito (km 441.8) covered by critical path CORTADA ISLA NUEVA,
should turn at north manoeuvre area due to roads congestion, maximum sailing draft to be considered is the one mentioned at PASO BELLA VISTA path (LOWERED DRAFT), otherwise a second option is at hand adding a tug assistance to turn in the center maneouvre area.

This information could be disclosed once vessel is berthed at either Terminal not before, however is advisable to keep monitoring situation on spot.
