Brazil seeks US help to dredge and upgrade ports for $1.5 billion
Brazil is seeking immediate help from US and other foreign companies to perform $1.5 billion worth of dredging and other improvements at seaports, US Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx told Reuters. The initiative is a hopeful sign that Brazil will speed up the improvement of its notoriously clogged and inefficient ports, which complicate its exports of soybeans, iron ore and other commodities. According to a fact sheet provided by the US embassy in Brasilia, Brazil plans to spend about $384 million on dredging in 2014 and a further $1.1 billion in related maintenance over the next 10 years. The list of upcoming dredging tenders includes Santos, the country's biggest port by value of goods shipped. At Santos, a multimillion-dollar dredging effort over the last decade has faced repeated delays and other problems that have prevented some of the world's larger and more efficient new vessels from calling at the port.

Stuck bridge means no ships can pass through channel
Part of the International Railroad Bridge, which crosses over the Niagara River between Buffalo and Fort Erie, Canada, is stuck in the closed position. Mechanics are at the scene now, but for the time being, no commercial or recreational water vehicles can travel past the bridge in the Black Rock Channel, where part of it swings open and shut, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. Due to the malfunction, the bridge is not opening to let ships pass through. No commercial traffic is waiting to cross under the bridge at this time, and Coast Guard officials were not aware of any recreational traffic either. The Coast Guard has issued an advisory to all craft. The bridge was built in 1873, and has been known to malfunction from time to time.

Shanghai port to expand Yangshan capacity by 4 million TEU by 2017
SHANGHAI's deep-sea Yangshan port, near Pudong airport, 26 kilometres along the south shore from Shanghai, is to expand capacity by four million TEU by 2017 at a cost of US$1.79 billion in the fourth phase. The fourth phase will see the expansion of some two kilometres of new quayside in the northern section of the port, reported SinoShipNews. The development was put on hold back by port operator's Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG) in 2008 because of concerns of container market slowdown and overcapacity of Chinese ports.

9M teu capacity deepwater port of Hastings to be built
Australia is set to have a new 9M teu capacity deepwater port capable of berthing the latest generation of megaships at Hastings, Victoria. The state government said last week the port would come under the Major Transport Projects Facilitation Act. About $102M was set aside in the last budget for preliminary studies, which could take up to two years. Hastings will ensure Victoria remains Australia's freight and logistics capital, added the Victorian Government. "The advantage of Hastings is it's already a deepwater port, with a minimum 16m [draught] the whole way," government spokesperson Steve Mann told IHS Maritime. "It will require little dredging and be able to cater for the big ships of the future." Meanwhile, in May the government announced it would proceed with privatising the Port of Melbourne.

LNG bunkering expands in America
LNG America and Liquiline will team up to offer LNG as a marine fuel in the ports of Seattle and Tacoma and to transport LNG in ISO containers to remote markets in Hawaii and Alaska. Under the agreement announced yesterday, the companies will work off each other's strengths in LNG logistical support and knowledge of US energy markets to foster burgeoning interest in using LNG to fuel vessels, IHS Maritime reports. Shipowners are turning to LNG as a fuel amid tightening environmental standards, particularly around Emission Control Areas established in 2012 off North America, which limit ships' SOx, NOx, and particulate matter emissions. In May, IHS Maritime reported that LNG America had awarded a contract to ABS to classify its first 3,000m3 LNG bunker barges, which will be stationed along the US Gulf Coast in late 2015.
