    Finnlines has decided to lengthen two more of its ro-ro vessels as part of the company's ship lengthening programme.

    Finnlines signed an agreement with Remontowa shipyard in Gdansk, Poland in April 2017 to lengthen four of its Breeze series vessels, with the option for the extension of two further vessels, as HLPFI reported here.

    The first two vessels, Finntide and Finnwave, have already been operating in their extended length; the following two ships, Finnsky and Finnsun, will be lengthened by the end of May 2018.

    Lengthening works for the final two vessels, Finnbreeze and Finnsea, will be carried out between September and December 2018.

    "These two lengthened vessels in addition to the previous four, will help us meet increased demand and enable us to serve our customers more efficiently," said Tom Pippingsköld, chief financial officer of Finnline.

    "This decision to lengthen another two vessels will help us to increase competitiveness and improve efficiency of capital employed on our fleet. This investment is also in line with sustainable development. By increasing our energy efficiency further we will contribute to reducing emissions per transported tonne."

    Finnlines said that the EUR70 million (USD85.9 million) extension programme will increase each ship's capacity by 30 percent and result in energy efficiency gains and emission reductions.  After the modification, each vessel measures 217.7 m in length.

    The construction process on Saudi Arabia’s new maritime yard has officially begun, with dredging and associated activities well underway, oil rig builder Lamprell Plc said.

    The yard is being developed by the International Maritime Industries (IMI) joint venture company, a project launched by Saudi Aramco, Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), Lamprell and the National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia (Bahri) in January this year.

    According to Lamprell, all the conditions for the company to formally commence business have been met. One of those conditions was IMI’s entry into a loan agreement with the Saudi Industrial Development Fund.

    “Lamprell has been working closely with its partners on the establishment of the IMI business over the past few months and we are very pleased to see such tangible progress towards the operational phase, now that the conditions under the shareholders’ agreement have been completed,” Christopher McDonald, CEO, Lamprell, said.

    “A very welcome progress is also the selection of our new LJ43 jackup rig designed with GustoMSC for the rigs under the offtake agreement, this will further strengthen Lamprell’s position in our traditional market.”

    The yard is expected to start production and service operations in 2019, with the facility reaching its full operational capacity by 2022.

    The nearly 12 million square-meter facility, situated in Ras Al Khair in eastern Saudi Arabia, will be able to manufacture over 40 vessels including three very large crude carriers (VLCCs), four offshore rigs and service over 260 maritime products on annual basis, as indicated by Saudi Aramco.

    This will enable the JV partners to meet their manufacturing and MRO requirements for offshore oil and gas rigs, offshore support vessels, and crude carriers.

    The yard already has orders for more than 20 rigs and 52 ships over the next decade.

    It is estimated that the total cost of constructing the maritime yard will be around USD 5.2 billion, of which approximately USD 3.5 billion will be funded by the Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

    The remaining cost of up to USD 1.7 billion will be funded by the JV partners. The JV will see Saudi Aramco invest up to USD 350.7 million, Bahri up to USD 139.3 million, HHI up to USD 70 million and Lamprell up to USD 140 million, the companies said earlier.

    Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has taken delivery of Beluga Ace, the first car carrier in the shipping line's next-generation Flexie series.

    Built at the Minaminippon Shipbuilding shipyard, the new ship marks a major advance in functionality, with six liftable decks, compared with two on most conventional car carriers, which MOL says allows Beluga Ace to more effectively meet demand from shippers of more diversified vehicles; as well as high and heavy cargoes.

    The hull design is a complete departure from current car carriers, says MOL. Its rounded bow shape will minimise wind resistance and is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by about 2 percent compared to today's car carriers and has been developed following joint research by MOL, MOL Techno-Trade, and Akishima Laboratories (Mitsui Zosen).

    Beluga Ace is 199.9 m in length and has a breadth of 32.2 m. It can carry up to 6,800 standard cars.

    The port of Everett has welcomed the first specialised containers carrying aerospace components for the new Boeing 777X.

    The components arrived at the port of Everett's Pier 1 from Nagoya, Japan onboard Westwood Shipping's vessel Balsa.

    The oversized containers were subsequently offloaded using a Gottwald mobile harbour crane capable of handling the heavier, larger aerospace containers arriving in Everett.

    HLPFI reported in its January/February 2018 edition that the start of production of the new B777X aircraft at Boeing's manufacturing facilities, located close to the port of Everett, would generate a steady flow of aircraft parts through the gateway.

    In April, work to begin modernising the port's South Terminal facility to better accommodate the next generation of aerospace and other over-dimensional cargoes will commence, as HLPFI reported here. Construction work at the terminal is expected to be complete in December 2019.

    Antwerp and Dakar port authorities plan to collaborate more closely in the next few years as they signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) in Senegal on March 2, 2018.

    As informed, Dakar has set sights on building a new port 50 km away from the present facility which, with a keel depth of 18 meters, will be able to handle the latest generation of giant container carriers. Together with the new port, Dakar also plans an economic and logistics zone of 600 hectares.

    “We will make use of our experience and expertise to help Dakar realise its ambitions,” Kristof Waterschoot, CEO of two subsidiaries of Antwerp Port Authority (PAI and APEC), said after the signature.

    A recent report by the World Bank underlines the economic potential of the continent but also points up a number of challenges such as the lack of sufficiently trained personnel, according to the Port of Antwerp Authority.

    “We will immediately step in to fill this gap, by sharing our know-how and expertise. Our training centre APEC remains the partner of choice for training maritime professionals, while our consultancy subsidiary PAI will assist the port authority with the necessary expertise for developing a multipurpose terminal and deepening the approach channels so as to maximise the capacity of the port of Dakar,” Waterschoot added.

    The MoU also contains a number of commitments in the area of marketing, developing trade relations, organizing joint commercial events and exchanging information on subjects such as customs & excise, security and sustainability.

    With an annual freight volume of 17 million tons, Dakar is one of the largest ports on the coast of West Africa. This port city is located at the crossroads of sailing routes between Europe and North and South America and southern Africa.

    DP World Australia’s Brisbane terminal has welcomed the first of two quay cranes to be delivered to the facility in 2018.

    The new crane arrived onboard vessel Zhen Hua 21 into the Port of Brisbane on March 5, along with three additional cranes for DP World Australia’s Melbourne and Sydney terminals.

    The crane was manufactured by Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries Company Limited (ZPMC).

    “The delivery of the cranes is a key part of DP World Australia’s national investment of AUD 180 million in port equipment for all of our terminals. This is an important investment for our future terminal operations,” Max Kruse, DP World Australia’s Chief Officer Operations, Terminals, commented.

    Once commissioned, the new cranes are expected to produce increased operational efficiencies and capability for the terminal, according to Glenn Wayne, DP World Australia, Brisbane Terminal General Manager Operations.

    “The new crane, with a boom outreach of 51 metres can service larger vessels which increases our capacity, and ability to service vessels faster. This is a fantastic investment for our Brisbane terminal which will enable the terminal to work vessels with even greater proficiency,” Wayne said.

    As part of the investment, a total of nine cranes will be delivered and fully operational by October 2018 at DP World Australia’s four terminals in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Fremantle.
