    The Canadian Ministry of Transport has inaugurated a new breakbulk terminal at the Port of Trois-Rivières, Québec.

    Located at Dock 9, the terminal includes new outdoor storage areas, warehousing and upgraded road and rail access. The Port of Trois-Rivières Authority invested C$10 million in the project with a further C$17.3 million from government.

    “The industrial fabric of Trois-Rivières includes several businesses that will benefit from the new breakbulk terminal. It also supports the implementation of the Industrial Port Zone whose commercialization work is well underway. This infrastructure could not have come at a better time,” said Julie Boulet, minister for the Mauricie region.

    The new terminal is expected to improve competitiveness for shipping on the St. Lawrence Seaway and meet demand from heavy manufacturing companies in the region. It will be operated by Logistec, one of largest port terminal operators in North America.

    For the period from October 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018, the port authority handled 634,460 TEU.

    JAXPORT’s Asian container volumes continued to grow and were up 16 percent in the first six months of the fiscal year, with 209,803 TEU moved. During the past five years, JAXPORT recorded an average of 21 percent annual growth in Asian container volumes.

    The port authority’s Puerto Rican volumes surged by 40 percent with 375,633 TEU moved, up from 267,827 during the same time last year.

    In early February, the federal project to deepen the Jacksonville shipping channel to 47 feet began construction.

    The project was launched after a decade of study, independent review, public input and full regulatory approval.

    Once completed, the additional 7 feet of water depth will allow the largest container cargo ships to call on JAXPORT carrying more cargo.

    Shipping line Hansa Heavy Lift has transported subsea equipment from multiple locations to the Offshore Cape Three Points development in Ghana.

    The complex breakbulk shipment involved delivery of vertical reels, a horizontal carousel, steel flying leads, a flowline end termination sled, subsea isolation valves and a variety of other subsea equipment. Transport took place via the heavy-lift vessels HHL Rhine and HHL Richards Bay, with cargo moved between the ports of Panama City, Florida; Eydehavn, Norway; and Takoradi, Ghana.

    “Due to the high amount of cargo units, crews had to overcome very tight stowage with precise positioning … This was particularly the case for the 500-tonne carousel on deck, which needed to be stored in a specific position to cover all supporting girders of the hatch cover to ensure sufficient load spreading,” said Tom Kroeger, project engineer at Hansa.

    Based in Hamburg, Germany, Hansa operates a fleet of 16 multipurpose heavy-lift vessels with lifting capacity of up to 1,400 tonnes.
