    Israel has welcomed its largest ship-to-shore (STS) crane as the first of potential ten units arrived at the country’s Ashdod Port.

    The EUR 9.5 million (USD 10.6 million) crane was delivered aboard the heavy load carrier Zen Hua 23, which is owned by the crane manufacturer Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries Company Limited (ZPMC).

    The Ashdod Port Company said it had options to purchase a further nine similar cranes.

    With a height of 123.5 meters with its arm fully raised and a capacity to load freight weighing up to 95 tons, the crane will be able to handle ships with a capacity of 18,000 TEU, the port said.

    The length of the crane’s marine arm is 66 meters, suitable for ships with a width of 59 meters carrying 23 rows of containers.

    “The introduction of the largest STS crane in Israeli ports puts Ashdod Port at the forefront of operations and technology, and will enable the company to continue providing the most advanced solution currently available in the field of marine cargo in Israel, with considerable improvement to the port’s output,” Orna Hozman Bechor, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Ashdod Port Company, commented.

    The crane is said to be unique to the Ahdod Port as it is equipped with a special hook to lift up to 95 tons of abnormal load.

    Qingdao Port International is soon to take control of the Weihai Port as the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC) arranged a merger deal between the parties.

    Namely, the Qingdao SASAC notified the company on July 9 of the deal through which Weihai Port Group would transfer its 100 percent stake in the Weihai Port to Qingdao Port International.

    The arrangement is subject to the approval from the State Administration for Market Regulation on the declaration of concentration of business undertakings.

    Upon the completion of the transfer, Weihai Port will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Qingdao Port.

    The company said that the two ports have similar businesses, that include stevedoring of cargoes such as container, metal ore, coal and other cargoes and the ancillary services, logistics and port value-added services, port ancillary services, finance lease services and the transport services of shipping lines for passengers and ro-ros.

    Although there is horizontal competition in the principal businesses between the parties, the scale of Weihai Port is relatively smaller as compared to that of Qingdao Port, therefore the competition on the principal businesses is limited.

    APM Terminals’ new Vado Gateway terminal, located in the Vado Ligure Port Complex in northwestern Italy, will be officially opened on December 12 this year, the terminal operator said.

    Once operational, the Vado Gateway Terminal will be fully integrated with the existing Vado Ligure Reefer Terminal.

    It will become the first semi-automated port in Italy with a fully-automated gate and stacking yard. The 700-meter deep-sea berth at Vado Gateway will be capable of handling the latest ultra large container vessels (ULCVs) and up to 1.1 million TEUs per annum.

    Over the coming month, the final ship-to-shore cranes will be installed, and a range of tests will be carried out. Each of the four cranes is over 90 meters in height and weighs in at around 1,800 tons. They have a horizontal reach of 23 rows of containers, a maximum 65-ton capacity in twin lift configuration and 100 tons ‘under hook’.

    The terminal will operate the most automated yard in Italy using 14 automatic rail mounted gantry cranes. The operator will intervene from a remote-control room only when required. This will enable the terminal to maintain the highest safety standards in the industry as no one will be physically present in the yard during container handling. Access to the automated forecourt will only be possible for maintenance activities when the cranes are non-operational, according to APM Terminals.

    Containers arriving at the Vado Gateway will be recorded using dynamic video cameras installed on quay cranes (STS). These will automatically send the information to the terminal’s operating system.

    Last month, APM Terminal Vado Ligure replaced their existing terminal operating system (TOS) with Navis 4, to support the Vado Gateway Terminal as well as increasing the terminal’s operational efficiency. This operating system is fully integrated with all the other equipment and enables real-time container tracking. This move also enables integration with the other APM Terminals companies in the world.

    Containers will be transported around the terminal using hybrid straddle carriers. Operators will receive instructions directly from the TOS. Exchange areas within the terminal are equipped with cameras and sensors which, in the event of non-compliance with safety regulations, will trigger an alarm mechanism and block further operations.

    On completion, the integrated Vado Ligure Port complex will be accessible via 14 reversible gate lanes. Maximum efficiency and short truck-turn-times of around 30 minutes will be achieved using a truck appointment system which is fully integrated with TOS.

    Modulift has developed two new products to assist the heavy lifting industry.

    The Modulift adjustable modular lifting beam (pictured above) is a spreader beam with multiple pad eyes and is available in three variants – light (up to 50 tonnes), medium (up to 170 tonnes) and heavy (up to 240 tonnes).

    The product can achieve spans up to 19 m and can be used as a lifting beam or a semi-spreader beam.

    Its modular construction reduces transport costs, as the longest component measures 6 m.

    Modulift’s technical director, Sue Spencer, said: “Lots of our customers have different requirements to move a variety of fixed-sized objects like metal skids – so rather than have lots of different-sized beams, they can just have one that is size adjustable. This is so much more efficient for our clients.”

    The Modulift trunnion drop link, meanwhile, can be safely and quickly attached to a sling using a single top shackle (rather than two).

    Spencer noted the importance of collaboration in innovation, explaining: “With the trunnion drop link, we responded to a request from our customer, RRS Group. It already had our beams and wanted compatible drop links.

    “It’s so much easier to attach trunnion drop links, especially for really heavy lifts, so it was an easy decision to not just make them for one customer but to add them to our range.”

    The trunnion drop link is compatible with Modulift spreader beams from MOD6 up to MOD110, with a capacity of up to 55 tonnes.

    It works with flat webbing slings up to the MOD50 and with wire rope and synthetic slings up to the MOD110.

    Cargolux has expanded its Asia-Pacific network with the launch of services to Indonesian capital city Jakarta.

    The new frequency connects Luxembourg to the Indonesian capital once a week. The flight leaves the Grand-Duchy on Sunday and arrives in Jakarta on Monday. The rotation then continues through Hong Kong and Ashgabat before returning to Luxembourg on Tuesday morning.

    With the launch of this route, it becomes the only all-cargo carrier to offer a direct main deck connection between Europe and Indonesia.

    The route will allow the airline to cater for a wide variety of commodities, as well as off-size freight such as oil and gas industry equipment, machinery, spare parts or aircraft engines.

    The main cargo transiting through the area will include apparel, footwear, pharmaceuticals perishables and live animals.

    Domenico Ceci, Cargolux’s executive vice-president Sales & Marketing said: “This new frequency contributes to enhancing our service offering in the South-East Asian region and better connecting us with our customers in the area. Jakarta is an influential commercial center, and we look forward to building local partnerships and furthering the city’s establishment as a global business gateway.”

    The thriving Indonesian megalopolis is the world’s second largest urban agglomeration and home to the ASEAN secretariat, making it an attractive commercial destination.

    Customers in Jakarta will have the opportunity to benefit from the airline’s extensive road feeder services from Luxembourg hub to a vast choice of European destinations.

    Cargolux has actually been doing business in Jakarta for over 23 years, mostly through partnerships and interline agreements so far.

    The airline did operate 4 charter flights, 2 inbound and 2 outbound, to CGK in 2018 ahead of the Asian Games.

    The inaugural flight took place on June 23 and the aircraft was welcomed by a traditional water salute following touchdown.
