    The Panama Canal has signed an agreement with Port of Itaqui, located in the northeastern region of Brazil, to promote the shipment of grains and other cargoes.

    Under the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), the parties would target shipments in the commercial route between the north of Brazil through the Panama Canal to destinations located in the Pacific Ocean.

    With this agreement, the Panama Canal looks to promote the use of the Panamax Locks for grain transits originating in northern Brazil and traveling to markets in Asia.

    “We look forward to a very productive relationship while we work together on our mutual objectives of improving and facilitating global trade,” said Panama Canal Administrator Jorge L. Quijano.

    The agreement will allow the Panama Canal and Port of Itaqui to conduct joint marketing activities and exchange market studies and information on trade flows to support modernization and improvement programs.

    Today, Brazil ranks among the main producers of grains worldwide and growth prospects are encouraging. In 2017, the port moved 19.1 million tons of cargo, becoming an important logistic corridor for the central-western region of Brazil.

    The MOU’s signing comes at a time when Brazilian grain exporters are enjoying considerable increases in shipment volumes. From a Panama Canal traffic standpoint, dry bulk vessels transporting grains and other dry commodities accounted for roughly 22.2 percent of the waterway’s total oceangoing commercial transits during its fiscal year 2018, which covers the period from October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018.

    MAFI will deliver another 25 terminal tractors to Poland’s biggest container and ro-ro terminal operator

    Following a public tender organised by DCT Gdansk earlier this year, MAFI was awarded a contract for 25 more terminal tractors in the summer and all the machines will be delivered during the first four months of 2019.
     
    With already 40 MAFI tractors already in place, which were sold around three years ago, the company will have supplied 65 tractors to the Polish operator.

    The new contract comprises 19 type T 230 4x2 terminal tractors and six type R 336 4x4 ro-ro tractors including a detachable ballast weight. As an added feature, a snowplough can be attached to each of the ro-ro tractors. “These ro-ro tractors will replace tractors of another brand as DCT considered our tractors to be the best solution for their operation,” said MAFI’s sales manager Harald Lutz.

    The tractors are equipped with Volvo Stage IV engines up to 210 kW and transmissions from ZF.

    "The new tractors will help DCT continue growing to achieve their future targets," added Lutz.

    Wisdom Marine’ Board of Directors has approved the purchase of two bulk carriers, the Taiwanese shipping company said in a regulatory filing.

    The approval relates to one 63,300 dwt bulk carrier to be ordered from Japanese shipbuilder Tsuineishi Group. The company has assigned USD 31 million for the acquisition.

    The second newbuild is a smaller bulker featuring 61,000 dwt and will be ordered from Kawasaki Heavy Industries. Wisdom Marine said it would assign USD 29 million for the vessel bringing the total value of the deal to USD 60 million.

    Just last month, the Taiwanese shipowner ordered the construction of a 82,400 dwt bulker at Japan Marine United Corporation (JMU). The Tier III NOx compliant newbuild is priced at USD 34 million, and is identical to the one ordered in June this year.

    In February, the company invested USD 68 million in two new NOx Tier III Panamaxes, which will also be built by JMU.

    Wisdom Marine has been on an ordering spree since last year, and it has 12 newbuilding ships under construction. These include four Panamaxes at JMU, three Handies and two Supramaxes at Imabari, one Handy at Namura, and two Supramaxes at Kawasaki.

    In total, the company’s large and diverse fleet of dry bulk vessels counts over 130 ships, the focus being on Handysize and Supramax bulkers.

    As informed, ADT has placed an order with Konecranes for a total of 54 automated rail mounted gantry (ARMG) cranes.

    The third Liebherr STS gantry cranes has been commissioned and put to work at Forth Ports’ Grangemouth container terminal.

    Grangemouth’s STS crane complement has increased by 50% to three and so, backed by an efficient straddle carrier-backed operation, shipping line customers can expect a significant reduction in turnaround time.
     
    Delivered part-big from Ireland and erected under the supervision of Liebherr engineers, the panamax crane has an SWL of 40 tonnes under spreader and 50 tonnes under lifting beam. As also previously reported, clear height under portal is 14.5m, enough clearance for 4-high straddle carriers should Forth Ports decide to go down this route.

    The first ship to be worked by the three cranes was ANDROMEDA J, a 962 TEU feeder vessel bound for Rotterdam.
     
    Forth Ports states more than £6B worth of goods passes through Grangemouth each year, including food and drink, chemicals, timber, paper and equipment, as well as project cargoes for the oil and gas industry.
     
    Derek Knox, Grangemouth’s Port Manager, said: “We are Scotland’s largest container port and we handle some of the country’s most valuable exports including food and drink. It is vital that we deliver fast turnaround times for our export and import customers and with this new crane, we can now unload and load a ship with a trio of cranes."

    DEME’s offshore installation vessel, Orion, has been launched at the Cosco Qidong shipyard in China.

    The vessel will be used in the construction of large offshore wind farms, servicing of the oil and gas industry, and decommissioning of offshore installations.

    Orion will be fitted with a 5,000-tonne capacity Liebherr crane - the HLC 295000 - which will be able to lift heavy loads at a height of over 170 m.

    Liebherr is currently constructing a 1,600-tonne capacity crane - the TCC 78000 - at its facility in Rostock, Germany, which will be responsible for installing the HLC 295000 heavy lift crane onboard Orion.

    The vessel’s deck space has been optimised to provide a high load capacity and will be capable of carrying monopiles, jackets, wind turbine components and other structures in a single shipment. It will also be able to transport and install the next generation of wind turbines, said DEME.

    Measuring 216.5 m long, Orion features DP3 capability, is fitted with dual-fuel engines and can run on liquefied natural gas (LNG).

    The vessel is expected to join DEME’s fleet at the end of 2019.

    Two Liebherr mobile harbour cranes, type LHM 600, were recently delivered from Liebherr’s maritime production facility in Rostock in Germany to Yilport’s recently acquired multi-purpose terminal in Quetzal, Guatemala.

    Yilport has an option for two more LHM 600s in 2019.
     
    The machines are equipped with a tower extension of 12m, which ensures a maximum cabin height of more than 37m. The higher position of the operator cabin ensures high visibility into deep cargo holds and enables highly efficient container handling with maximum safety.

    With a maximum outreach of 58m, twin lift capability and a lifting capacity of 104 tonnes, the LHM 600 is capable of servicing vessels up to 19 container rows wide and nine container stacks high.

    The two cranes were shipped fully-erect by the ro-ro vessel ROLLDOCK STORM. This is a proven method of shipping Liebherr cranes built in Rostock. Shipping fully-assembled Liebherr cranes by ro-ro vessel means that the machines can be ready for operation shortly after driving off the vessel onto the quay. Both cranes will be ready for operation by the end of November.
