    Ontario’s Hamilton port is to receive CAD17.7 million (USD13.3 million) from the National Trade Corridors Fund.

    The investment, which will be matched by the Hamilton Port Authority (HPA), will go towards the port’s CAD35.45 million (USD26.7 million) modernisation project, which aims to create a multimodal transportation hub at the 115 ha Westport area of the port.

    According to HPA president and ceo Ian Hamilton: “This investment recognises what a critical trade gateway the Great Lakes are in serving Canada’s most populated area, and the country’s industrial heartland.”

    Close to 10 million tonnes of marine cargo transits Hamilton port each year, including exports of Ontario-manufactured components, factory equipment and machinery.

    “Improvements to the Westport area will optimise the port’s current footprint, create new development parcels, and help Canadian companies get their goods to global markets,” added Hamilton.

    The modernisation project includes construction of a new dock wall at one of the port’s busiest piers; upgrades to the Westport rail network to provide more cargo handling capacity; improvements to internal roadways; and grading and paving of cargo laydown areas.

    Investment will begin before the end of this year and continue through to December 2020.

    Oxbo Mega Transport Solutions has coordinated the delivery and installation of ten engines and ten generators for a power plant project in southwest USA.

    Weighing 158,400 lbs (71.8 tonnes), the generators measured 4.57 m x 3.96 m x 4.34 m; the engines weighed 642,840 lbs (291.6 tonnes) and measured 13.1 m x 4.1 m x 6.1 m.

    Once the generators and 30 other components arrived at the project site by truck, Oxbo used platform trailers to move all of the items to the assembly area, where the units were moved into place using a gantry crane.

    Using a gantry crane, Oxbo unloaded the engines from railcars and onto Goldhofer platform trailers for transport into a storage area.

    In a few months, Oxbo will begin moving the engines on to their designated pads using a jack and slide system.

    Meanwhile, Oxbo has transported two 355,110-lbs (161.1-tonne) transformers using a Goldhofer THP/CA dual lane transporter.

    Each transformer measured 10.11 m x 3.71 m x 4.67 m. The entire configuration measured 118.8 m long and weighed 680.4 tonnes.

    Upon arrival at the substation, crews used a jack and slide system to lower and set each transformer onto its pad.

    Liebherr is constructing a 1,600-tonne capacity gantry crane - the TCC 78000 - at its facility in Rostock, Germany.

    Featuring a maximum lifting height of 112 m, the rail-mounted heavy lift crane will be able to move over a distance of 420 m between the factory site and the adjacent quayside.

    Equipped with a double trolley (two rails per side) and a rail gauge of 30 m, Liebherr says the gantry crane provides optimum flexibility for handling all types of large-sized goods.

    The TCC 78000 will be used for handling heavy cargoes from the offshore, shipbuilding, industrial plant construction and logistics sectors, as well as for its in-house logistics processes such as the production, assembly and dispatch of maritime cranes. In the future, the gantry crane will also provide other companies the possibility of handling heavy lift cargoes in the port of Rostock, added Liebherr.

    Its first major operation is to install the HLC 295000 heavy lift crane - the largest offshore crane Liebherr has ever built - onto DEME’s wind farm installation and platform decommissioning vessel, Orion.

    The HLC 295000 will be able to lift 5,000 tonnes at an outreach of more than 30 m. Liebherr was awarded the contract to supply the heavy lift crane for DEME in March 2018, as HLPFI reported here.

    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.
