    UK-headquartered Mainstay Marine has acquired a 160-tonne lifting capacity amphibious boat hoist.

    The Pembroke Dock-based company said the unit will lift vessels at its 4.6 ha site.

    Built by Italian company Boat Lift, the remote-controlled crane weighs 60 tons (54 tonnes) and measures 12 m in height. It has six lifting winches and can be immersed in water up to 5 m deep. It will be able to lift vessels with a 9 m beam and a 4.5 m draught.

    Stewart Graves, managing director at Mainstay Marine, commented: “The boat hoist will complement our recent upgrades to our slipways giving us the ability to provide customers with a much more flexible service for vessels up to 650 ton (590 tonnes)."

    The company’s other facilities include a wet basin, four slipways and a ro-ro jetty.

    Mainstay Marine said that the hoist will be used to launch the Welsh Fisheries Protection vessel Rhodri Morgan, as well as the 19 m-long catamaran Lady Megan, both of which are being built on site.

    The hoist could also be used in the EUR76 million (USD85.7 million) Swansea City development project at Pembroke port, which will support the marine renewable sector in Wales, according to Mainstay Marine.

    The Port of New York and New Jersey witnessed a record-breaking year as it handled over 7 million TEU in 2018 for the first time in its history.

    The record-setting amount of cargo, totalling over 7.17 million TEUs, exceeded the previous year’s numbers by almost 7 percent, allowing the port to maintain its position as the busiest on the East Coast and the third busiest in the nation following Los Angeles and Long Beach.

    The boost was fueled by an 8.2 percent increase in imported goods, over the previous record for imports set in 2017. The port also handled one third of all containers on the East Coast of North America, representing an increase in market share of 2.8 percent over last year.

    The growth was in part attributed to the completion of the Bayonne Bridge Navigational Clearance Project in June 2017, which raised the clearance under the bridge from 151 feet to 215 feet, allowing the world’s largest container ships to pass under it and serve port terminals in New York and New Jersey.

    Since the bridge project was completed, the port has seen a surge in the size of vessels calling on the port, with nearly 30 percent of all containerized cargo at the port now carried on vessels with the capacity to handle 9,000 or more TEUs.

    At the passenger ship terminals, more than 856,000 travelers used port facilities in both Brooklyn and at the Cape Liberty Cruise Terminal in Bayonne. Passenger volume was up more than 17 percent when compared to 2017.

    The port’s bulk cargoes including commodities such as road salt, scrap metal and edible oils, also realized strong growth of more than 16 percent as compared to 2017 with a total of 3.68 million metric tons handled in 2018.

    Yamal LNG, a joint venture liquefied natural gas production project in Sabetta, Russia, has shipped its ten millionth ton of LNG since the commencement of the project.

    As informed, the 136th cargo offloaded onto the Arc7 ice-class tanker Vladimir Vize reached 10 million tons of LNG produced since the start-up of Train 1 in December 2017.

    Vladimir Vize is one of several Arc7 ice-class tankers supporting the project. The 168,560 cbm ship was built by South Korean Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard in October 2018.

    Yamal LNG is constructing a 17.4 mtpa natural gas liquefaction plant comprised of three LNG trains of 5.5 mtpa each and one LNG train of 900 thousand tons per annum, utilizing the hydrocarbon resources of the South-Tambeyskoye field in the Russian Arctic.

    Classification society Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK) has granted an approval in principle (AIP) to Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) for the company’s project on the concept design of an LNG-fueled 207,000 dwt bulk carrier.

    Speaking on the occasion, Hayato Suga, ClassNK Corporate Officer and Director of Technical Solution Department, said:

    “The maritime industry has been setting its sights on LNG as an energy source for ships as it is an environmentally-friendly alternative to fossil fuels.”

    “Kawasaki Heavy Industries is taking full advantage of this opportunity as well with their new bulk carrier design. We have carefully confirmed the safety of the design and are proud to contribute to this project,” he added.

    Featuring a length of around 300 meters and a width of 50 meters, the new LNG-fueled bulk carrier keeps its cargo space as large as that of conventional oil-fueled ships by configuring the LNG fuel tank behind the accommodation in the stern.

    Powered by low-speed, dual-fuel diesel engine, the ship achieves significantly reduced emissions of CO2, NOx, SOx, and particulate matter when using LNG as fuel, meeting Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) Phase 3 requirements.

    With the International Maritime Organization (IMO) imposing tighter restrictions on emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants, the shipping industry has been increasing its focus on utilizing LNG and other clean fuels in place of conventional fuel oil. Against this backdrop, Kawasaki has been developing various LNG-related vessels, such as the world’s first LNG-fueled car carrier, delivered in 2016, and LNG bunkering vessels.

    “Combined with additional technological innovations and knowledge developed in the course of acquiring the AiP for this bulk carrier, which complies with the latest international regulations, Kawasaki is fully equipped to proceed with its design and building, as well as to apply these technologies to other types of ships,” the company said.

    Kawasaki plans to widen its application of LNG propulsion technology in commercial vessels and increase its focus on building LNG-fueled vessels, for which demand is expected to grow globally in the future.
