    Ultra large ships carrying containers have become the dominant force of the industry, but not all ports can accommodate these giants of the seas.

    With that in mind, the South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) has been working on the Charleston Harbor Deepening project for quite some time. The project, which will see the channel deepened to 52 feet (15.8 meters), finally broke ground at a ceremony held earlier this month with the first dredgers already deployed on the spot.

    “It is a monumental accomplishment to begin construction on the Charleston Deepening Project, which makes Charleston the deepest port on the East Coast at a time when deep and wide shipping channels are necessary,” Jim Newsome,  SCPA president and CEO, said.

    As explained by Newsome, ports must adapt to handle the big containerships in order to remain competitive.

    “Our project will be completed just ten years from its initial conception in 2010, enabling Charleston to serve the fastest growing region in the country with the ability to handle ships fully-loaded with heavy export goods,” he said.

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District awarded the first two construction contracts last fall, which together provide for the deepening of the more than 20 miles long Charleston Harbor Entrance Channel to 54 feet.

    Including the dredging of the upper and lower harbors to 52 feet, the project is expected to achieve significant completion by 2020, SCPA said.

    South Carolina Ports Authority reported a fiscal year-to-date container volume record of over 1.4 million TEU handled since July.

    “Our container volumes are on track leading into spring, which is generally a strong season for the port,” Newsome added.

    “It is an exciting and busy time for the port, having just received two new neo-Panamax cranes and celebrated the beginning of construction on the Charleston Harbor Deepening Project. We look forward to the next milestone, the opening of Inland Port Dillon, next month.”

    Finnlines has decided to lengthen two more of its ro-ro vessels as part of the company's ship lengthening programme.

    Finnlines signed an agreement with Remontowa shipyard in Gdansk, Poland in April 2017 to lengthen four of its Breeze series vessels, with the option for the extension of two further vessels, as HLPFI reported here.

    The first two vessels, Finntide and Finnwave, have already been operating in their extended length; the following two ships, Finnsky and Finnsun, will be lengthened by the end of May 2018.

    Lengthening works for the final two vessels, Finnbreeze and Finnsea, will be carried out between September and December 2018.

    "These two lengthened vessels in addition to the previous four, will help us meet increased demand and enable us to serve our customers more efficiently," said Tom Pippingsköld, chief financial officer of Finnline.

    "This decision to lengthen another two vessels will help us to increase competitiveness and improve efficiency of capital employed on our fleet. This investment is also in line with sustainable development. By increasing our energy efficiency further we will contribute to reducing emissions per transported tonne."

    Finnlines said that the EUR70 million (USD85.9 million) extension programme will increase each ship's capacity by 30 percent and result in energy efficiency gains and emission reductions.  After the modification, each vessel measures 217.7 m in length.

    The construction process on Saudi Arabia’s new maritime yard has officially begun, with dredging and associated activities well underway, oil rig builder Lamprell Plc said.

    The yard is being developed by the International Maritime Industries (IMI) joint venture company, a project launched by Saudi Aramco, Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), Lamprell and the National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia (Bahri) in January this year.

    According to Lamprell, all the conditions for the company to formally commence business have been met. One of those conditions was IMI’s entry into a loan agreement with the Saudi Industrial Development Fund.

    “Lamprell has been working closely with its partners on the establishment of the IMI business over the past few months and we are very pleased to see such tangible progress towards the operational phase, now that the conditions under the shareholders’ agreement have been completed,” Christopher McDonald, CEO, Lamprell, said.

    “A very welcome progress is also the selection of our new LJ43 jackup rig designed with GustoMSC for the rigs under the offtake agreement, this will further strengthen Lamprell’s position in our traditional market.”

    The yard is expected to start production and service operations in 2019, with the facility reaching its full operational capacity by 2022.

    The nearly 12 million square-meter facility, situated in Ras Al Khair in eastern Saudi Arabia, will be able to manufacture over 40 vessels including three very large crude carriers (VLCCs), four offshore rigs and service over 260 maritime products on annual basis, as indicated by Saudi Aramco.

    This will enable the JV partners to meet their manufacturing and MRO requirements for offshore oil and gas rigs, offshore support vessels, and crude carriers.

    The yard already has orders for more than 20 rigs and 52 ships over the next decade.

    It is estimated that the total cost of constructing the maritime yard will be around USD 5.2 billion, of which approximately USD 3.5 billion will be funded by the Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

    The remaining cost of up to USD 1.7 billion will be funded by the JV partners. The JV will see Saudi Aramco invest up to USD 350.7 million, Bahri up to USD 139.3 million, HHI up to USD 70 million and Lamprell up to USD 140 million, the companies said earlier.

    Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has taken delivery of Beluga Ace, the first car carrier in the shipping line's next-generation Flexie series.

    Built at the Minaminippon Shipbuilding shipyard, the new ship marks a major advance in functionality, with six liftable decks, compared with two on most conventional car carriers, which MOL says allows Beluga Ace to more effectively meet demand from shippers of more diversified vehicles; as well as high and heavy cargoes.

    The hull design is a complete departure from current car carriers, says MOL. Its rounded bow shape will minimise wind resistance and is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by about 2 percent compared to today's car carriers and has been developed following joint research by MOL, MOL Techno-Trade, and Akishima Laboratories (Mitsui Zosen).

    Beluga Ace is 199.9 m in length and has a breadth of 32.2 m. It can carry up to 6,800 standard cars.
