    Intradco Cargo Services and operator National Air Cargo have successfully managed a high-profile project to fly 47 horses from Dubai World Central Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC) as part of the world-famous Cavalia equestrian tour.

    The charter on a B747-428(BCF) aircraft was the inaugural flight to make use of the newly-constructed horse loading ramp at DWC, a unique facility designed to allow for the increased import and export of live animal cargo.

    Livestock and bloodstock transport specialists Intradco, recently acquired by global aircraft charter firm Chapman Freeborn, coordinated the project to fly the horses to Ostend in Belgium following their recent performances in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

    For use in Petronas’ Bintulu LNG Train 9 project

    SAL Heavy Lift has delivered a cryogenic heat exchanger for use in Petronas’ LNG Train 9 project in Bintulu, Malaysia.

    SAL Heavy Lift’s Annagret, a Type 161A vessel with 650-tonne lift capacity, carried the 257-tonne exchanger manufactured by Air Products. The cargo measured 50.7 meters long, 5.66 meters wide and 6.06 meters high, SAL said in a statement.

    “A cryogenic heat exchanger is the effective heart of an LNG plant,” Justin Archard, managing director for SAL Heavy Lift across Southeast Asia and Australasia, said. “They are incredibly valuable and tremendously sensitive pieces of technology and require very special handling.”

    The cryogenic heat exchanger was collected in Fairless Hills, Penn. in the U.S. for transport to Bintulu.

    The LNG Train 9 project will add 3.6 million tonnes per annum to the Bintulu complex’s existing 24 mtpa capacity.

    JGC with its Malaysian subsidiary JGC (Malaysia) was in 2013 awarded the US$2 billion engineering, procurement and construction contract. LNG Train 9 is scheduled to begin production by the end of 2015.

    Iraq has approved two deals worth nearly US$1 billion to run operations at Rumaila, the country’s largest oil field.

    UK-based Petrofac was awarded a US$538.5 million management contract for Rumaila field projects, while China Petroleum Engineering & Construction Corp. won a US$425 million engineering, procurement and construction contract to build a new power station. Rumaila is located in southern Iraq, about 32 kilometers from the Kuwaiti border.

    The Iraqi government plans to triple oil production capacity from today’s 3 million barrels a day to 9 million. Production from Rumaila accounts for more than a third of the country’s total output. The oilfield is being developed by Britain’s BP and Chinese partner CNPC.

    The Department of Energy has selected three Offshore Wind Advanced Technology Demonstration Projects in Virginia, New Jersey and Oregon to receive continued funding to develop systems ready for commercial operation by the end of 2017. Each project could receive up to US$47 million in this round of funding.

    In 2012, the DOE selected seven projects to receive US$4 million for development. The list has been cut to three: Dominion Virginia Power’s Virginia Offshore Wind Technology Advancement Project (VOWTAP), Fishermen’s Energy Atlantic City Windfarm and Principle Power Windfloat.

    The demonstrations will help address key challenges associated with installing full-scale offshore wind turbines, connecting offshore turbines to the power grid, and navigating new permitting and approval processes, the DOE said in a statement.

    Dominion Virginia Power will install two 6-megawatt direct-drive wind turbines 26 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach, Virginia. VOWTAP will use a domestically-produced twisted jacket foundation and incorporate hurricane-resilient design features.

    Fishermen’s Energy of New Jersey will install five 5-megawatt direct-drive wind turbines in state waters about three miles off the coast of Atlantic City, New Jersey. Fishermen’s Energy Atlantic City Windfarm will demonstrate the use of a twisted jacket foundation that is easier to manufacture and install than traditional foundations, which should reduce the overall cost of offshore wind energy. The project will also include a sea laboratory to study offshore wind, investigate the interactions between turbines, test new control systems and provide information about potential environmental impacts of offshore wind.

    Finally, Principle Power Windfloat — the only West Coast project — will install five 6-megawatt direct-drive wind turbines approximately 18 miles off the coast of Coos Bay, Oregon, using a semi-submersible floating foundation. Principle Power’s WindFloat system will be assembled on shore and towed out to sea, reducing the need for costly vessels typically used to assemble and install offshore wind systems at sea.

    Russia Nicaragua flags
     
    Foreign Minister Lavrov visits Nicaragua to discuss joining the US$50 billion endeavor

    Russia is considering ways it can participate in the Nicaragua Canal, a project estimated to cost at least US$50 billion.

    The mega-project is being developed by Hong Kong Nicaragua Canal Development Investment Company (HKND Group), led by Chinese billionaire Wang Jing. HKND last year arranged a 50-year lease with the Nicaraguan government to build a canal connecting the Caribbean Sea with the Pacific Ocean. The canal is seen as a possible alternative to the Panama Canal, which is undergoing a US$5.25 billion expansion.

    Last week, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov visited Nicaragua to discuss the project.

    “We have repeatedly discussed this issue with our Nicaraguan colleagues… whom we look forward to seeing at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, said in an interview with RIA Novosti. “We are searching for suitable forms for Russia to join this project.”

    Nicaragua plans to begin construction late this year. However, the project has already come under fire from environmentalists who say it will cause irreparable damage to Lake Nicaragua, the region’s primary source for fresh water. Despite the controversy, Jing has signed agreements with several big Chinese firms, including Xugong Group Construction Machinery Co., one of China’s biggest construction equipment manufacturers, China Railway Construction Corp., China’s biggest overseas engineering contractor.
