Port infrastructure


deep-water docks

A bay that is navigable


Adapted to vessels of

all sizes

The SFP Pointe-Noire offers preferential access to the infrastructure of the Sept-Îles Port Authority. Situated at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River, the three deep-water docks in the Port of Sept-Îles benefit from a strategic geographic position that makes them a gateway to international markets. Moreover, we offer access to the railcar ferry dock, which affords access to the North American rail network.

From the standpoint of capacity, the Sept-Îles Port Authority infrastructure can handle the world’s largest ships such as Capesize and China Max vessels, in a bay that is navigable year-round.

The port terminals are devoted mainly to high-volume solid bulk shipments. Dock 31 can also receive and ship bulk liquids.
