    With Turkey’s Istanbul New Airport scheduled to open at the end of the month, Turkish Cargo is preparing to relocate some of its freighter operations in 2019.

    The Turkish Airlines subsidiary will continue to operate its cargo operations from Istanbul Atatürk Airport until December 31, 2018, after which all bellyhold cargo will be shipped from the new airport.

    While freighter flights will continue to operate out of Istanbul Atatürk Airport, Turkish Cargo plans to establish a new hub in Istanbul using the new airport’s 165,000 sq m usage area.

    “We will have a terminal with a capacity of 2 million tons per year upon completion of the first phase of construction, and 4 million tons per year after the second phase is completed,” explained Turkish Cargo.

    With a cargo fleet of 20 aircraft, including three Boeing 747s, Turkish Cargo aims to become one of the top five brands in the airfreight industry. Earlier this month, the airline expanded its network with the addition of flights to Stansted, UK.

    “It is expected that the flights from Stansted (STN), the third busiest airport in London, will feed the Middle East region, especially the Africa and Asia continents substantially,” said Turkish Cargo.

    The service will utilise one of Turkish Cargo’s Airbus 330 widebody freighters.

    Finland-based company Containerships, recently acquired by French CMA CGM, is adding two more LNG-powered containerships to its orderbook in China.

    Announcing the christening of its third and fourth LNG-powered vessels at the Wenchong Shipyard, China, the company said it had signed a preliminary agreement for the fifth and sixth LNG-fueled boxhips with the shipbuilder.

    The contract was signed in the summer this year, but further details were not disclosed.

    The two ships, christened in China last week, have been named M/S Containerships Finn and M/S Containerships.

    As informed, due to the nascent nature of the construction of LNG-powered ships, the company has had to push the delivery dates of its newbuilding quartet.

    According to the current delivery schedule, the first two LNG-powered vessels, which were christened in May this year, will be delivered to Containerships during 2018 and the last two during January – March 2019.

    The first vessel, M/S Containerships Nord, is scheduled to start its last sea trials during October.

    “Even though we have been forced to reschedule the delivery of the LNG vessels by some months, I am happy to say that no major issues that would have put the whole project at risk, have appeared. M/S Containerships Nord, our first newbuild, successfully completed the first part of its sea trials in July,” CEO Kari-Pekka Laaksonen said.

    “Five years ago, we committed to the largest investment in Containerships’ history and started to build Europe’s first LNG-based supply chain basically from zero. Obviously, as the first logistics company to do this, it has not been easy, but I still believe it is the way to go. The environment needs new solutions, and both the public authorities and our customers demand more ecological transport options.”

    Cargo shipping line Hansa Heavy Lift has transported two fully assembled ship-to-shore container gantry cranes from Ireland to the UK for Liebherr Container Cranes.

    The cranes measured 81 meters long, 30 meters wide and 57 meters high, and were shipped aboard the multipurpose vessel HHL Lagos. They were loaded at DSG Terminal, Port of Cork, and discharged at the Port of Hull, UK.

    “This was a complex project where in-depth engineering knowledge and operational expertise was an absolute requirement throughout all stages,” said Emek Ersin Takmaz, head of projects at HHL.

    Based in Hamburg, Germany, Hansa operates a fleet of 14 multipurpose heavy-lift vessels with lifting capacity of up to 1,400 tonnes.

    On behalf of broker HBB Hanseatic Break Bulk, Hansa Heavy Lift transported two ship-to-shore gantry cranes for Liebherr Container Cranes from the Doyle Shipping Group (DSG) terminal at the port of Cork, Ireland to Hull in the UK.

    Andre Milschus, managing director at HBB Hanseatic Break Bulk, pointed out that this was the first time fully assembled ship-to-shore cranes were transported via a lift-on and lift-off method on a heavy lift vessel after being built in Ireland.

    Each crane measured 81.4 m by 30.3 m by 57.3 m; Hansa and Liebherr worked together to design tailor-made seafastening and load spreading structures, as well as special rigging for loading and discharge.

    At Cork, the cranes were moved using SPMTs. Once lifted onto HHL Lagos, the first of the cranes was moved to the forward end of the hatch covers. The second was then lifted directly into its stowage position in the cargo hold.

    Both cranes were discharged directly onto the rails at the port of Hull.

    Denis Doolan, transport and shipping manager of Liebherr Container Cranes, said: “This project was quite a challenging one from a logistics point of view and took months in the planning.”
