    Port and terminal operator, Yilport Holding, has moved closer to its proposed concession of a container terminal at Italy’s Port of Taranto.

    Namely, the company received an initial approval for the concession from the Port Network Authority of the Ionian Sea (PNAIS) in early August.

    “We are very happy to hear that our proposal has been accepted and published. Yilport is enthusiastic about Taranto Container Terminal and committed to Taranto’s rise in the port industry,” Robert Yuksel Yildirim, Chairman of Yilport Holding, said.

    Yilport plans to deliver its vision to improve Taranto Container Terminal as both a gateway terminal and also a transshipment hub of tomorrow, as well as boost container volumes. The terminal operator also intends to collaborate with local operators to develop breakbulk, project cargo and ro-ro traffic.

    Yilport’s proposal to operate the entire set of multi-purpose port facilities in Taranto covers developing and revamping the terminal facilities to attract and grow container volume, improve the logistics network and serve general cargo and ro-ro traffic.

    “We will prepare the terminal for the future of container shipping industry. Soon, we will start our talks with major global container shipping lines and feeder services for their commitment to Taranto Container Terminal,” Yildirim added.

    Current annual container handling capacity of the terminal is about 2 million TEUs with a quayside draft of -16.5 meters. Yilport plans to expand annual handling capacity to over 4 million TEUs via investments in the next 10 years.

    Total cargo crossing all Georgia Ports Authority docks grew by 8 percent, or 2.6 million tons, in fiscal year 2018 to reach a record 36 million tons of containerized, breakbulk and bulk cargoes.

    Machinery, as well as commodities such as rubber and paper, pushed the breakbulk total at Savannah’s Ocean Terminal to 1.35 million tons, up 10 percent or 122,305 tons compared to fiscal year 2017.

    Forest products at Mayor’s Point Terminal in Brunswick increased by 34.5 percent, up 35,953 tons, for a total of 138,653 tons, for the fiscal year ending June 30.

    Containerized traffic increased 8.4 percent to 4.2 million 20-foot equivalent units. The port authority capped its fiscal year with the 20th consecutive month of year-over-year growth.

    In addition, intermodal rail lifts surged to 435,000, an increase of 16.1 percent, or more than 60,000 additional moves, another record for the GPA.

    The port authority board approved construction of an $8.8 million overpass, part of the $127 million Mason Mega Rail project that, upon completion, will allow 10,000-foot unit trains to be built on terminal, helping increase Savannah’s annual rail lift capacity to 1 million containers by 2020.

    In August, the GPA will open its Appalachian Regional Port, an inland rail terminal it says will remove 50,000 trucks off Georgia highways.

    Florida’s Orion Marine Group has started installing the 413 concrete piles for Port Canaveral’s multipurpose cargo berth.

    Canaveral Port Authority approved construction of North Cargo Berth 8 (NCB8) in January 2018, as HLPFI reported here.

    Scheduled for completion in mid-2019, NCB8 will handle a growing portfolio of heavy and oversized cargo, including commercial spacecraft components.

    Once the 90 ft (27.4 m) long concrete piles have been placed, construction will start on a seawall.

    The 900 ft (274.3 m) seawall and planned 100 ft (30.5 m) pier extension will be capable of handling an 850 ft (259 m) ship, says the port.

    NCB8 will be constructed with a 2,000 lbs per sq ft (9.8 tonnes per sq m) capacity, a necessary requirement for handling aerospace cargo and other heavy modules, says the port.

    Port of Corpus Christi’s recently developed breakbulk cargo laydown yard, the Rincon West Yard, has received its first shipment of wind turbine components.

    Components for the Blue Cloud Wind Farm will be imported through the 25-acre (10.1 ha) yard, which is in close proximity to Cargo Dock 9, located on the north side of the ship channel.

    Wind turbine manufacturer, Vestas, is scheduled to import wind turbine nacelles, hubs, drive trains and blades for Tri-Global Energy’s 148 MW wind farm, which is located in the Texas counties of Bailey and Lamb.

    From the laydown area, the components will be trucked to the job site, says Corpus Christi.

    “The future of wind energy is important to Corpus Christi, Texas and the USA; and our Rincon West Yard is an incredibly viable logistics option for the innovative wind energy industry,” said Port of Corpus Christi ceo, Sean Strawbridge.

    The Rincon West Yard was developed for heavy and breakbulk cargo. Adjacent highway systems and barge docks represent added logistical benefits for the new yard, says the port.
