    Good News...

    Proud to share with you the professional performance of OPCA member Bullocks Freightmasters International.

    They have recently completed a part charter from Fremantle to Durban.

    This project was a 12-month process from their first initial quote to the final shipping arrangements due to the cargo being required for refurbishment and required for a gold mine project in 2020.

    The following posed challenges such as vessel delays, extension in laycan dates, changes to traffic warden / pilots:

    • Due to the location of the cargo, they required to complete a full route / traffic management survey.
    • Traffic warden was deployed due to the weight and size of the cargo.
    • Trailers used to handle movement via road.
    • A contra flow was applied for transport once departing the shipper’s premises due to turning onto incoming traffic.




    Their consignment consisted of 2  x 95T & 2 x 112T ball mill shells, along with 15  x SOC Containers, 4 x crates @ 35 Tonne each and 16 crates of accessories, overall consignment of  57 Items, 845MT, 2685CBM.

    Prior to vessel's arrival, Bullocks team was engaged to purchase SOC equipment such as flat racks and 40ft GP Containers, loading and lashing of OOG cargo onto 20ft and 40ft flat racks, survey of cargo and necessary crane lift operations at the clients premises.

    Loading operations completed over 3 days in Fremantle Port and a transit of 13 days to Durban. 

    All discharged without any delays in Durban for final delivery to the client in Johannesburg.

    They finally would like to thank all involved in making this project a success!

    For your requirements in Australia, you can contact their Freight Forwarding Manager Anthony Paratore.

    Congratulations to BULLOCKS FREIGHTMASTERS INTERNATIONAL for their excellent project!

    Liebherr has upgraded the lifting capacity of its LTM 1750-9.1 mobile crane from 750 tonnes to 800 tonnes.

    The company said that the upgrade has been made possible through the use of refined static calculation methods.

    Despite the increase in lifting capacity, the type designation of LTM 1750-9.1 will be retained.

    Operators of the LTM 1750-9.1 now have the possibility to update the crane software with the new tables and add any additional equipment required, said Liebherr.

    A new luffing fly jib configuration has also increased the load capacity for wind energy applications.

    Liebherr explained that more than 10 tonnes of additional load capacity can be generated for the mounting of wind turbines on 90-100 m-high towers.

    Heavy-lift shipping firm Spliethoff has transported a giant turbine blade to the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center in Boston.
     
    The 107-metre blade forms part of the prototype Haliade-X turbine which is currently undergoing durability testing at the MCEC.

    The turbine, developed by GE, is the largest offshore wind turbine ever with a 220-meter rotor, delivering 12 megawatts of output, and driving demand for a new generation of breakbulk carrier.

    The prototype design is also being tested at the Sif terminal in Rotterdam where the first version of the turbine has just produced its first power.
     
    Amsterdam-headquartered Spliethoff Group operates a fleet of about 50 1A ice-classed, multipurpose vessels, ranging from 12,000 to 23,000 deadweight-tonnes.

    Original news was published on 06 November 2019

    Authorities at the port of Duluth in Minnesota have reported a record cargoes of wind energy components for 2019, as the final inbound wind energy cargo vessel of the year off-loaded.
     
    In total, the port off-loaded 306,000 freight tons of wind energy cargo in 2019, an increase from the previous record of 302,000 freight tons set in 2008.
     
    “This has been a banner year for wind energy cargo and also for the Clure Public Marine Terminal and Duluth Cargo Connect. And it’s no accident,” Deb DeLuca, executive director of the Duluth Seaway Port Authority, said.
     
    Midwest wind power demand growing
     
    The Midwest was highlighted by recent HIS Markit report as a focus for growth in operations and maintenance spending for the wind sector.

    In particular, Great Plains and upper Midwest states, such as Iowa, Oklahoma, Kansas, Illinois, Colorado and Minnesota where annual O&M spending is forecast to increase by U$1.3 billion.
     
    "If you want to get the biggest bang for your buck in terms of the health and climate benefits of renewables, investing in the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes regions will keep populations downwind healthier while also taking important steps to decarbonize," Drew Michanowicz, research fellow at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health, said.
     
    The Twin Ports of Duluth, Minnesota and Superior, Wisconsin, collectively known as the Port of Duluth-Superior, handle the highest tonnage of any port on the Great Lakes, and act as a multimodal hub for the Great Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway system.
     
    Seamless connection

    The twin ports expect to see further growth in breakbulk demand as the scale and roll-out of wind projects steps up over the near term.
     
    “We’ve made more than $25 million in strategic investments to the terminal over the past four years, enhancements that help support the excellent work Duluth Cargo Connect does in handling these oversize wind cargos,” DeLuca commented.
     
    Lamb, president of Duluth Cargo Connect, agreed, adding” We pride ourselves in providing a seamless connection between modes of transportation for our wind energy customers” and adding that the port was “geographically well-situated to support wind farm installations in the Upper Midwest and central Canada.”
