    Liebherr has retrofitted two LTM 1500-8.1 mobile cranes with low temperature equipment and an altitude package for Chilean crane contractor Burger Grúas.

    Company owner Raul Burger said the cranes have been updated to suit the numerous climate zones in Chile: "For us, it is important to be ready to work flexibly throughout the whole country. That is why we had Liebherr retrofit our two LTM 1500-8.1 cranes with low temperature equipment and an altitude package. Our cranes are often used in mines, which are generally located at high altitudes.”

    The two cranes are currently erecting turbines at a wind farm in southern Chile. “We also had the cranes modified by Liebherr so that the telescopic booms can be removed easily for transport. That's a real benefit for obtaining road permits. Furthermore, there are lots of bridges in our country which are only passable in vehicles under 60 tonnes.”

    Burger Grúas recently acquired a LR 1750/2 crawler crane from Liebherr, which is now the most powerful crane in its fleet. It is currently at work in the Atacama Desert in northern Chile at a mining project.

    The Port of Durban has noted growth in volumes in the container, liquid bulk and dry bulk sectors in 2018, according to recent data released by Transnet National Ports Authority.

    Container volumes in the Port of Durban ended 9.5% higher for the year ending December 2018 at 2,956 670 TEU compared to 2,699, 978 TEU handled in 2017, stated TNPA. Of this, container imports grew by 10% in 2018 and exports by 17%. These are the highest volumes handled by the port in the last seven years, noted the authority.

    Dry bulk volumes grew by 5.8% from 2017 to 2018, driven mainly by dry bulk exports while imports remained fairly stable. The biggest growth in imports was seen from rice and associated products, wheat, malt, fertiliser products, coal and coke, while maize, sugar and chrome ore exports also bolstered dry bulk volumes.

    Liquid bulk volumes grew 3.1% from 28.231M kilolitres in 2017 to 29M kilolitres in 2018. This was mainly attributed to demand factors as well as South Africa being a net importer of crude.

    The port also noted growth in its automotive throughput with imports growing by 4% and exports by more than 15% year-on-year excluding transhipment and coastwise cargo. The Port of Durban thus handled a total of just over 487,000 units in 2018, which is the highest since 2013 when a throughput of 503,000 units was recorded.
     
    Breakbulk volumes in 2018 were relatively on par with 2017 volumes. Throughput in this sector is erratic with some cargoes migrating to other forms of handling such as the containerisation and dry bulk sectors.

    Port of Durban Acting Port Manager, Nokuzola Nkowane, said: “The Port of Durban continues to work with terminal operators and other stakeholders to ensure improvements in terminal productivity levels for quicker ship turnaround times. Operational efficiencies are the focus to drive volume performance.”

    Polish natural gas companies PGNiG and LOTOS recently completed two commercial bunkering ops of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in what PGNiG says are the first operations of this kind carried out at seaports in Gdańsk and Gdynia.

    The first bunkering took place on March 13 and saw chemical tanker Fure Valo receive 54 tonnes of LNG fuel.

    In the second bunkering, which took place on March 18, bulk carrier Ireland received 18 tonnes of LNG fuel.

    Worth noting is the fact that the 4,500 dwt Ireland previously became the first vessel to be successfully bunkered with LNG at the Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP) in May 2018.

    “Bunkering of ships with natural gas in liquefied form is another of many possibilities of using gas, which PGNiG imports to Poland from Qatar, Norway and the USA through the President Lech Kaczyński LNG Terminal in Świnoujście,” commented Maciej Woźniak, Vice-President of the PGNiG Management Board for Trade.

    According to the directive on the development of alternative fuels infrastructure, by the end of 2025 at the latest, a sufficient number of LNG bunkering points should be created in seaports. In case of Poland, these are to be: Gdańsk, Gdynia, Szczecin and Świnoujście.

    PGNiG and LOTOS said LNG bunkering services are now a permanent offer of both entities and can be provided in both Tri-City ports.

    Australia’s Port of Newcastle hosted the largest fuel tanker in its 220 years of commercial operations on March 18.

    The 244-metre LR2 tanker, Pro Alliance, berthed at Stolthaven’s bulk liquids terminal Mayfield 7, marking the culmination of a significant investment in Newcastle. The milestone follows the arrival of the port’s first LR1 tanker in early January.

    Receiving vessels of this size was made possible following a four-year collaborative project between Stolthaven, Port of Newcastle, Port Authority of NSW and Svitzer to expand channel capacity and accommodate deep-draft inbound tankers up to 245 metres LOA.

    The project partners committed to increasing the port’s capacity through a number of activities, including detailed channel simulation investigations, adding active escort tug capability to the port’s fleet and the development of a dynamic under-keel clearance system (DUKC) for deep draft inbound ships to complement the existing outbound DUKC system.

    “In our 220th year of commercial shipping, milestones such as this signify the evolving role of the port in facilitating global trade through our harbour and driving growth in the regional, state and national economies,” Keith Wilks, Port of Newcastle Executive Manager Marine and Operations, said.

    Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) has received a DNV GL technology qualification certificate for its QUAD lifting method, which has been established to install and/or remove oversized topsides or jackets.

    HMC tested the lifting method in the Gulf of Mexico in October 2018. The solution deploys two dynamically positioned vessels and uses the combined capacity of the ships' four cranes in tandem. HMC’s semi-submersible crane vessels Thialf and Balder were used to compete the test.

    The QUAD lifting method is, according to HMC, suitable for installing topsides on any type of foundation, from jackets to floating structures. HMC added that the method guarantees lower overall project costs.

    The certificate from DNV GL recognises that HMC is able to prepare and execute this method.

    According to HMC, when its largest semi-submersible crane vessel Sleipnir enters commercial service, the company will be able to use the combined lifting capacity of Thialf’s 14,000-tonne capacity cranes and Sleipnir’s 20,000-tonne capacity.
