1. ACCESS PERMITS
Vessels must abide by Port of Rauma Ltd.’s security regulations and provide the Main Gate with crew member, passenger and guest lists. The lists must be sent via email to email@example.com
Every person boarding or disembarking a vessel must make themselves known at the Main Gate if they do not hold a permanent access permit.
They must present a valid identity document at the gate. The Main Gate checks the person’s name against the vessel’s lists, and the access permit is issued based on the person’s status. Visitors must be able to indicate the person they are going to visit. If the gate hasn’t received prior notice of such persons, the vessel or vessel’s agent will be contacted. It is illegal to enter the gate without a permit or without making oneself known at the gate. Trespassers will be warned and reported to the authorities where necessary.
Request an access permit from the company you wish to visit. Present ID and provide your reason for visiting the port upon request when accessing or moving around the port area.
If you encounter any problems with your access permit that your host company cannot solve, please contact the Main Gate Info, where you can obtain a one-time access permit.
As the holder of an access permit, you are personally responsible for the permit and for any passengers you have brought to the port area. The access permit must not be given to anybody else and you are under the responsibility of the host company when you are in the port area.
Visits to vessels are authorized if the vessel has docked and you are able to indicate the person you are going to visit. The vessel must provide the Main Gate with a list of crew members as well as a guest list.
The port area can be accessed through three different gates; the Main Gate on Hakunintie Road as well as separate gates to the chemical and oil quays.
At the Main Gate your vehicle will be identified by its the license plate, and to access the port area you need an access permit and a clean license plate. Pedestrians and cyclists can use the pedestrian gate, which is opened with a small, key-ring size access permit tag that can be obtained from your host company.
The gates to the oil and chemical quays operate with a separate access permit tag, which you can obtain from your host company or Main Gate Info. These gates can be opened remotely from the Main Gate for users with a valid access permit. Contact the Main Gate Info using the gate phones or your own telephone. Driving to the oil and chemical quays is forbidden when vessels are docked for loading or unloading.
