    The Georgia Ports Authority has outlined plans for a series of infrastructure projects, designed to boost capacity and provide new opportunities in roll-on, roll-off cargo handling.

    Speaking on the port authority’s fiscal year 2018 results, Executive Director Griff Lynch detailed expansion projects that will double the port’s auto rail capacity and allow Georgia to reach markets as far west as California with direct service.

    “The Port of Brunswick achieved a solid performance across all cargo categories over the last fiscal year. As GPA adds new terminal space, we will expand our service area in the Southeast and beyond,” Lynch said.

    Bulk cargo handling was particularly strong at East River Terminal, operated by terminal operator Logistec, where volumes rose 11 percent to 1 million tons in the fiscal year ended in June.

    GPA plans to add 60 dockside acres to ro-ro operations over the next 12 months. By 2019, the GPA will have added 250 acres, for a total of 550 acres of leasable space for auto processing at Colonel’s Island Terminal.

    Peel Ports and ASCO have joined forces in a long-term strategic partnership aimed at supporting the energy sector in Great Yarmouth and promoting future sustainability for the port

    By working in collaboration, the two organisations aim to support existing customers and attract new ones to the port by offering increased flexibility to meet the demands of the oil and gas, renewable energy and decommissioning sectors operating out of Great Yarmouth.

    The 12-year partnership will officially commence from January 2019 and will see ASCO assume operational responsibility for two more berths at the Peel Ports port.

    Glenn Hurren, ASCO’s Southern North Sea Director said: "Our new partnership gives the additional capacity we needed to expand our operations in Great Yarmouth. We now have a stronger base for building marine collaboration in the UK Southern North Sea sector and the ability to provide a flexible solution for our customers covering Peterhead, Aberdeen and Great Yarmouth."

    The partnership will generate long term job creation and sustainability through the attraction of new business to the region, said Peel Port.

    Port Director Richard Goffin said: “Through working with ASCO, we will be able to harness the enormous potential that Great Yarmouth has as a key base for oil and gas, renewable energy and decommissioning operations.

    “We will bring together best-in-class expertise and facilities to promote further collaboration, diversify offerings and services offered by both companies and ensure a solid foundation for continued growth and investment at Great Yarmouth."

    Improved data sharing about berth availability at ports could deliver “substantial savings” for shipping lines, according to new research commissioned by the Port of Rotterdam Authority and research institute TNO.

    The findings mark the conclusion of a study looking at the utilization of berths and sailing speeds on approach, particularly during the last 12 hours before docking of a vessel.

    “If sea-going vessels are regularly kept informed … about exactly when their berth will become available, they will be able to adapt their sailing speed accordingly,” a spokesperson for Rotterdam said.

    Shorter Breakbulk Anchorage Times

    The report’s authors estimate that this would not only lower emissions of carbon dioxide, sulphur oxides and nitrous oxides but, due to shorter waiting times for ships in anchorage areas, deliver significant costs savings when scaled across fleets.

    “If this waiting time was an average of 12 hours shorter, that would really make a difference in percentage terms,” said Jan Hulskotte, senior researcher at TNO.

    As the largest port in Europe, the port of Rotterdam, covers 105 square kilometers and is home to some of the densest maritime traffic corridors in the world, making the findings significant when considered across all traffic. Consisting of five distinct port areas and three distribution parks, the port’s hinterland serves an estimated 40 million consumers and handles 30,000 ocean-going vessels and 105,000 inland vessels per year.

    CO2 reductions

    Through analysis of the movements of container ships sailing to Rotterdam port in 2017 the report’s authors were able to calculate that adjusting sailing speed by an average of 5 percent was enough to cut more than 100,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

    “By supplying more accurate information to ships, 4 percent – or 134,000 tonnes – of CO2 emissions can be saved every year,” Hulskotte said.

    “In percentage terms, we’re talking about modest amounts … but it’s exactly these types of measures that can make a huge difference in the short term and help reduce the carbon footprint of marine shipping. Added to that, they’d also have a beneficial effect on the wallets of the shipping companies,” said Astrid Dispert, technical adviser of the Global Maritime Energy Efficiency Partnerships project.
