    Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) is about to exceed 4.6 million twenty-foot equivalent container units for the first time in a calendar year, the East Coast-based port authority said.

    This marks a 14 percent increase in trade levels over volumes moved through Savannah just three years ago, or an additional 550,000 TEUs.

    Over the same period, the authority has increased the annual capacity at the Port of Savannah from 5 million to 5.5 million TEUs.

    “Through incredible teamwork from the GPA and the ILA on the docks, to the motor carriers and Class I railroads, and to our partners throughout the supply chain, Georgia has managed to create a powerful hub for commerce that is creating jobs and economic opportunity in every corner of the state,” said GPA Executive Director Griff Lynch.

    Lynch said to keep cargo flowing, GPA is adding cranes, container rows, truck gates and intermodal capacity.

    With the first phase of GPA’s Mason Mega Rail project opening this spring, cargo moved by rail has grown twice as fast as the authority’s overall three-year growth rate in container trade.

    For the calendar year-to-date through October, the GPA moved 3.88 million twenty-foot equivalent container units, an increase of 222,800 TEUs or 6 percent, year over year.

    Total tonnage crossing all GPA terminals reached 32.5 million tons January through October, up 4 percent over 2018, or 1.21 million tons, including containerized, bulk and breakbulk cargo.

    The Port of Savannah is handling the highest volumes of any container terminal in the U.S. Southeast, moving as many as 8,000 TEUs per ship.

    The Port of Savannah’s aims to increase irs annual capacity to 11 million TEUs, up from the current capacity of 5.5 million TEUs per year.

    The authority plans to expand beyond its 1,200-acre footprint at Garden City Terminal to establish a new container port on Hutchinson Island, across the Savannah River channel.

    The 200-acre Georgia site sits directly across from Ocean Terminal in Savannah. It will have an annual capacity of 2.5 million TEUs.

    Original news was published on 03 December 2019

    Engineering specialists McDermott and Chiyoda have announced the completion of Train 2 of the Cameron project, in Hackberry, Louisiana.

    The partners reached the final commissioning stage for the liquefaction export facility and introduced the first pipeline feed gas to the new LNG train.

    “This achievement is yet another significant milestone during 2019 and the first for Train 2,” a spokesperson for McDermott said.

    The news follows first commercial operation at Cameron LNG Train 1 in August and is expected.

    Three liquefaction trains

    McDermott and Chiyoda have both been involved in engineering, procurement and construction work for the Cameron LNG project since its inception in 2014.

    Once fully operational the facility is expected to export 12 million tonnes per annum of LNG, or approximately 1.7 billion cubic feet per day, from three liquefaction trains.

    "Congratulations to the entire Cameron LNG project team who continues to make strides on this project and remains focused on providing stellar project delivery as we reach another notable milestone," Mark Coscio, Senior Vice President at McDermott, said.

    Headquartered in Texas, McDermott is one of the largest integrated onshore-offshore EPC companies in the world, with operations in over 54 countries and a workforce of approximately 32,000 employees.

    Tranche B approved

    The firm saw its outlook boosted this week as it was granted access to the second tranche of a $1.7 billion super-priority senior secured credit facility.

    The firm’s share price has struggled so far this year, impacted by strong headwinds in its core markets.

    Its stock hit at a record low of 56 cents in the middle of last month and has plummeted 88 percent year to date.

    “The Tranche B funding is expected to allow McDermott to continue collaborative discussions regarding a long-term balance sheet solution,” a spokesperson said.

    Denmark’s Lindø port of Odense has placed an order for an LHM 800 mobile harbour crane (MHC) from Liebherr.

    The custom-built machine has a lifting capacity of 308 tonnes and a lifting height of 96.7 m above the quay.

    According to Liebherr, the unit is equipped with a high-rise tower extension, making it the largest and strongest MHC it has ever constructed.

    The crane will be delivered with a built-in electric motor, which Liebherr said will save the port up to 300 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.

    Liebherr added that the machine enables Lindø port of Odense to handle the next generation of offshore wind turbines, which are increasing in both size and weight.

    “With the purchase of the new mega crane, Lindø port of Odense is cementing its key role as one of the world's largest port players in the green transition with unique production facilities for the future of offshore wind turbines,” explained ceo Carsten Aa.

    “We can see that the sizes are getting bigger and bigger. We are meeting that development now with this investment so that we can continue to contribute to facilitating green workplaces within sustainable energy production.”

    The new unit can be used in tandem with the port’s existing LHM 550 MHC to handle larger offshore wind energy components, some of which weigh up to 400 tons (362.9 tonnes).

    In a first for the UK wind industry, the Port of Blyth is installing a bespoke wind turbine training facility at one of its terminals as part of a £1M investment in training provision aimed at the offshore energy sector.

    With the rapid growth of renewable energy providing the North East with major inward investment opportunities, the skills gap that currently exists in the sector is a key barrier to growth, says the Northumberland port.

    This investment has enabled the Port of Blyth, through its award-winning training arm Port Training Services, to purchase, modify and install a Vestas V47 turbine, develop a dedicated training facility alongside the turbine and purchase specialist equipment.

    The erected turbine features a duplicate nacelle unit for safer use with trainees while the original nacelle is located at ground level for technical training.

    Port of Blyth’s CEO Martin Lawlor, said: “Seeing the turbine being hoisted into position is a great milestone for us. Port Training Services has been at the forefront of the port skills agenda for many years and this development represents a huge opportunity for them to widen their offering to a high growth sector in the coming years.

    “We see a key role for ourselves in supporting the development of talent right through from schools engaging with our Blyth STEM Hub initiative to our training partnerships with local colleges and this facility is an exciting extension of that. The region and indeed the UK as a whole will benefit from this facility through the development of key skills relating to offshore energy and we’re very much looking forward to unveiling it to the industry.”

    The facility has benefitted from funding from the Coastal Communities Fund and will offer clients the opportunity for realistic training in relation to working at height, rope access, blade repair & inspection techniques, advanced rescue and emergency response simulation.

    Port of Blyth is home to some of the world’s largest offshore energy companies and plays a key role in the dynamic Energy Central partnership.
