Australian Iron Ore Ports shut down as Cyclone Christine to Intensify
Iron ore ports in northwest Australia, the world’s biggest exporter of the raw material, are shutting as a strengthening tropical cyclone nears the Pilbara coast. Port Hedland, the largest ore-export terminal, closed at 1 a.m. local time, the port authority said in an e-mailed statement. The port of Dampier will close at 6 p.m. local time, acting Chief Executive Officer Paul Toussaint-Jackson said in a phone interview on Dec. 30. Category two Cyclone Christine is expected to strengthen to category three tomorrow before making landfall near Dampier, about 200 kilometers (125 miles) west of Port Hedland and 1,200 kilometers north of Perth, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

Quebec port sets bulk cargo record
The Port of Sept-Iles on Dec. 15 set a North American maritime record for loading the largest amount of bulk cargo onto a ship. The Quebec port loaded 302,264 metric tons of iron ore cargo, shattering its previous record of 255,653 metric tons set on Oct. 16, 1993. It will take the ship about 57 days to reach its destination in China and deliver its cargo to Wuhan Iron and Steel Co., port officials said in a press release. "This new milestone puts the port at a turning point in its history," said Pierre Gagnon, the port's president and chief executive officer. "Chinamax bulk carriers are the way of the future for large iron-ore producers because of their operational efficiency and load capacity."

10 dead in tug capsizing
Ten people were killed on Dec 23 when a tugboat capsized at a military shipbuilding yard in the Karşıyaka district of the Aegean province of İzmir. Soldiers and civilian workers were among those who were killed in the accident. Six soldiers reportedly rescued themselves by jumping into the sea, while diving teams are still searching for the missing crew. Seven soldiers who were slightly injured in the incident were reportedly taken to nearby hospitals. The Naval tugboat TGC "Değirmendere", 1850 ts, was being lowered into the sea following maintenance at the Alabey Military Shipbuilding Yard when it suddenly listed to one side, taking on water at the Alaybey Naval Shipyard in Izmir's Karsiyaka district. She was in the middle of an attempted launch into the water around midday following a repair. However, the boat started taking on water after it listed and eventually tilted fully onto one side. Six of the wounded were taken to the Karsiyaka State Hospital and the other was taken to the Ege University Hospital for treatment. Rescue efforts are under way for the missing marine and two ship workers. Report with photo: www.maritime-exec...

Nigeria: Reform Attracts Larger Vessels to Nigerian Ports
he Nigerian Ports Authority has said that larger vessels of above 232.33 meters with capacity of 4,500 20-foot equivalent units (TEUS) requiring draught of 13.5 meters have started visiting the Nigerian seaports. The authority said in its annual report, that the visits by the larger vessels have provided shipping companies with a high level of efficiency and economic space which has enhanced their turnover and turnaround time. Industry stakeholders and shipping experts had at the beginning of the year harped on the importance of attracting larger ships, due to shippers' preference for them as a result of their economies of scale advantage. The NPA said its analysis of the country's ports' performance showed that most of the ports recorded increase in the Gross Registered Tonnage (GRT) mainly due to the constant capital and maintenance dredging of the channels at the nation's ports that enabled the large vessels to call at the ports. According to the NPA, apart from crude oil terminals, 1,366 ocean going vessels with a total GRT of 34.6 million gross tons called at Nigerian ports in the 3rd quarter of 2013.

Istanbul based firm U.N. RoRo buys stake in Italy’s port of Trieste
The daily train capacity of the terminal will be raised, enabling Turkish trucks to reach European countries without entering highway traffic. The daily train capacity of the terminal will be raised, enabling Turkish trucks to reach European countries without entering highway traffic. U.N. Ro-Ro, which has been operating for around 20 years in Turkey’s maritime sector, has acquired some 60 percent of Samer Seaports terminal, operating in the Port of Trieste at the north-most point of Italy. The deal was inked in Trieste on Dec. 16, having been the Turkish firm’s first foreign port investment. “U.N. Ro-Ro plans to enlarge the capacity of the port by making some 8.5 million euros of additional investment by the beginning of next year. The daily train capacity of the terminal will then be raised to six trains, enabling Turkish trucks and containers to reach central European countries without entering highway traffic,” said the chief of the company, Sedat Gümüşoğlu via a written statement on Dec. 18.

Port of Amsterdam opens tank location for LNG
As of today, Dec. 23, inland navigation vessels can bunker LNG (liquefied natural gas) in the Port of Amsterdam. Greenstream was the first ship to moor alongside the Amerikahaven quay today to bunker LNG. Built by Peters Shipyards, Greenstream is operated by InterStream Barging and has been chartered by Shell. The LNG was also supplied by Shell. Port of Amsterdam has designed the 'Groene kade' (Green Quay) in Amerikahaven to enable safe bunkering from a tanker truck into an inland navigation vessel or small ocean-going vessel. LNG is a clean fuel which is a promising alternative to marine fuel. The Port of Amsterdam encourages clean shipping in the port. Two Dutch ships currently run entirely on LNG, the Greenstream and the Greenrhine, and one ship - the Argonon - uses dual fuel technology (LNG and gas oil mixed). More ships are under construction. Using LNG as a fuel provides major environmental benefits; vessels emit up to 25% less CO2, up to 80% less NOx, up to 100% less SO2 and also 100% less soot and fine particles than current inland navigation vessels. "Port of Amsterdam is doing everything possible to encourage the use of cleaner fuels, including LNG. As an energy port, we're pleased to contribute to greening marine fuels," says Koen Overtoom, Port of Amsterdam's COO. "We're currently developing plans with our partners to convert green gas into the even cleaner bio-LNG, so that we can reduce CO2 emissions even further." LNG is liquefied natural gas. Natural gas (methane) is liquefied at an extremely low temperature (-162 degrees Celsius), which means that the gas takes up 600 times less volume. This makes the gas easier to transport and use. Its safety has been extensively researched. LNG has very low emission levels of sulphur, nitric oxides and fine particles, and that's good for air quality. Source: Port of Amsterdam
