    AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC Airlines) has recently added Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, to its international network.

    The all cargo carrier will operate the B747 service twice-weekly to accommodate the country's emerging export flows, which have seen westbound volumes grow robustly in recent years.

    This becomes the 14th destination in ABC's Asian network and extends the airline's ability to guarantee fast and seamless cargo deliveries to Europe, Russia, and the USA.

    The flight will be operated in conjunction with AirBridgeCargo's Shanghai, China, service and will give customers a vast choice of international connections over its Moscow cargo hub.

    "We have been reviewing the possibility of Bangladesh coverage for the last couple of years. The country's emerging volumes tipped over 25 percent growth last year as the number of manufacturers based in this country increased.

    "This fact makes us feel confident that our operations will be appreciated by customers, especially by those with garments and apparel commodities, which constitute the major part of traffic from Bangladesh," highlighted Sergey Lazarev, general director of AirBridgeCargo Airlines.

    He adds: "With the lion's share of cargo being Europe and USA bound, we will be able to leverage these flows, carrying various kinds of cargo, including temp-sensitive products, oversized and heavy shipments, live animals, e-commerce and others."

    Original news was published on 20 February 2019

    British shipbuilder Cammell Laird has launched a new GBP 10 million (USD 13.03 million) ferry it has built for Isle of Wight ferry operator Red Funnel.

    The Red Kestrel, a new freight-only RoRo vessel, will operate between Southampton and Isle of Wight.

    The 1,070 gross ton newbuild will officially join the fleet on arrival in Southampton, and enter service in May 2019, following a trials and training period.

    The launch event marks the debut of Red Funnel’s first dedicated RoRo freight ship since the company’s inception.

    “We are delighted by today’s launch of Red Kestrel…We’re thrilled that not only will Red Kestrel increase our total capacity and enhance convenience for our cross-Solent customers but we also take tremendous pride in supporting the revival of world-class shipbuilding in this country,” Fran Collins, CEO of Red Funnel, commented.

    “We are especially proud to be working for a British ferry company, winning the contract against international competition,” Tony Graham, Cammell Laird Chief Operating Officer, said, adding that the shipyard sees a big market in ferry repair, conversion and newbuild.

    Red Kestrel is Red Funnel’s first ship to be designed for freight traffic. As a freight vessel, it is limited to 12 passengers and constructed specifically to provide additional year-round freight capacity for Red Funnel’s Southampton-East Cowes route, which currently handles 53% of all freight movements across the Solent.

    At 74 meters in length, the newbuild will provide 265 lane meters of roll-on/roll-off freight capacity.

    To minimize the environmental footprint, the hull shape has been designed specifically to reduce wash and a propulsion package has been selected to make the vessel highly fuel efficient whilst meeting the latest Tier III emission regulations. The use of azimuth thrusters will also make the ship very maneuverable, according to Cammell Laird.

    The crossing time of 55-60 minutes will be identical to Red Funnel’s existing Raptor class RoPax ships and Red Kestrel will use the same berths in Southampton and East Cowes.

    Based in the UK port of Southampton, Red Funnel carries 2.3 million passengers and over 800,000 vehicles on its ferry route between the UK port of Southampton and East Cowes and 1.1 million passengers between Southampton and West Cowes on its Red Jet Hi-Speed service.

    Weiland lifts with Liebherr

    Original news was published on 18 February 2019

    German crane contractor Weiland has used its Liebherr LTM 1450-8.1 to lift and remove a smaller five-axle mobile crane from the Heidingsfeld viaduct in Würzburg.

    As a result of the demolition work at the viaduct on the A3 motorway, there was no longer a route for five-axle LTM 1250-5.1 to be driven off the site.

    Therefore, Weiland utilised its 450-tonne capacity LTM 1450-8.1 to hoist the smaller mobile crane off the abutment.

    Weighing approximately 60 tonnes, the smaller crane was attached to outriggers and lowered 20 m.

    The LTM 1450-8.1 mobile crane was set up with 134 tonnes of ballast at a radius of 18 m.

    Weiland also used a Liebherr LR 1600/2 crawler crane for the demolition work on the 660 m motorway bridge. The crane lifted strand jacks and positioned them onto unfinished sections of the structure. The strand jacks were then used to lower road segments, some of which weighed over 2,000 tonnes.

    The new viaduct near Würzburg is part of a larger infrastructure project, which will widen the A3 between Aschaffenburg and Würzburg into a six-lane motorway.

    Terminal operator orders one STS crane, two RTGs and nine terminal tractors.

    Halterm Container Terminal in Halifax Nova Scotia has announced another equipment order as it gears up to handle two large container vessels simultaneously.

    Halterm has announced it is making “a significant investment in a Super Post-Panamax ship-to-shore container gantry crane and associated lifting equipment, together with an extensive order for container yard equipment, including 2 Rubber-Tired Gantry Cranes and 9 Terminal Tractors and Trailers, with an option to extend procurement to a further Ship-to-Shore crane in 2019”.

    The STS crane order has gone to ZPMC, with delivery scheduled for June 2020. The crane will have a 24-row outreach, and join Halterm’s four existing Super Post-Panamax units and one Panamax unit.

    The two RTGs ordered from Konecranes follows an order for three Konecranes RTGs the terminal placed in 2017, with delivery last year. Winning the terminal tractor order is a breakthrough for Terberg. Halterm’s previous order for terminal tractors went to Kalmar (13 machines in 2016), and it is thought this new order will be its first Terberg machines. Terberg has been trying hard in the US market, where it opened a regional office in 2014.

    For Halterm, the new equipment is a key part of its plan to meet the needs of larger vessels. “Halterm is working with the Halifax Port Authority to ensure dynamic demand-led capacity development,” added Holtermand. “For example, the new berth extension will allow Halterm to handle two Ultra Class vessels , while recent container yard expansion and inland rail initiatives with CN provide highly efficient low impact through-port container movements. The cranes and support equipment are key to the terminal’s unique position as Eastern Canada’s ‘Ultra-vessel’ container gateway.”

    Halterm is know to be up for sale by its owners Macquarie Infrastructure Partners, but there is no further news on a potential buyer at this stage.
