LA Port Enlarges Giant STS Cranes
Ten Los Angeles Port Ship-to-Shore (STS) cranes have been weighed by ZPMC North America and its partners as part of an upgrade project to improve handling for megaships. The Port of Los Angeles project heightened the cranes by 10 metres by inserting longer leg sections in August, 2017. The US branch of the global manufacturer, ZPMC North America worked with the crane’s original manufacturer, Noell Crane Systems and American equipment hire firm Lifting Gear Hire on the project. Structural fabrication of the new leg sections and frame bracing was accomplished at ZPMC’s Shanghai facility. The project involved weighing one Noell STS crane, originally estimated to have a weight of 1,350 tons. A total of ten similar cranes, including the weighed crane, were set to be enlarged. The weight of the crane as provided in historical documents was 1,185 tons, and post-construction weighing indicated the raising added 193 tons, for a total pre-ballast weight of 1,378 tons. https://www.porttechnolog...

Gothenburg licks its throughput wounds
Port of Gothenburg is suffering the fallout from the ongoing labour dispute with figures showing an unprecedented fall in container volumes. During the first six months of the year the number of containers shipped fell by 22%, the biggest decrease in the history of the port meaning that handling figures are now at a level not seen since 2001. “The consequences for Swedish trade are immense, as several services to key markets have been withdrawn, including direct services that are vital to both imports and exports,” said Magnus Kårestedt, chief executive, Gothenburg Port Authority. “A great deal of freight has been shifted from sea to road, investments are failing to materialise, and jobs have disappeared.” Mr Kårestedt said that the volume figures for the first six months of the year clearly show how the two-year dispute between the trade union and the container terminal APM Terminals Gothenburg, is impacting negatively on container trade. The dispute between the operator, APMT, and section 4 of the Swedish Dockworkers’ Union began back in May 2016. www.portstrategy....

Port conditions returning to normal
Friday, September 1, 2017, Lake Charles, United States The Port of Lake Charles advises all conditions normal, and they are standing down from Safe Harbor. Ship movements started at 0300 yesterday (31 August). An updated Marine Safety Information Bulletin has been approved removing the restriction for deep-laden ship movements with tug escorts. All movements must still be approved by the MSU prior to scheduling a pilot. It is expected that after completion of the channel surveys that the deep draft restriction will be rescinded and the ship channel will return to normal operations. Tropical Storm Harvey continues moving off to the northeast, and all tropical and marine related watches and advisories have been cancelled for the Texas coast. There will, however, be continued hazards from moderate to strong currents in the rivers and bayous for several days or weeks. The ICWW is fully open and the locks are all working through to New Orleans. At Mile Marker 230 on the Intracoastal Waterway, the Grand Lake Bridge has reopened. Lake Charles Pilots confirm that traffic is moving well since the port’s reopening. Source: GAC

Global Marine Group Select Blyth for Major New Base
The Global Marine Group (GMG), a market leader in offshore engineering services to the renewables, telecommunications and oil & gas industries, has announced that it has expanded its operations base in the United Kingdom to include the Port of Blyth. The company has said it sees Blyth as a modern, well-specified port that has emerged as a major support base for UK offshore energy projects. Operating from the Port of Blyth, both of Global Marine Group’s two business units, CWind, which provides services to the offshore wind industry, and Global Marine, which provides fibre optic cable solutions to multiple sectors, will be able to offer regionally-focused support, resulting in faster mobilisation, greater flexibility and enhanced response times for customers. The expansion to the Port of Blyth is the latest step in GMG’s plan for continued growth and the development of a suite of local operational hubs situated where customers need support. According to the company, Blyth will enable GMG access to a wider market in the Greater North Sea, as well as further afield in Europe, where a large offshore wind customer base already exists.

Update on Freeport conditions
HOUSTON / GALVESTON / FREEPORT While there are five ships set to sail, they are not in or above the restricted area beyond Morgan’s Point. Other reasons for ships not moving are that they are over the present draft restrictions or the required facility inspections need to take place. Movements will start shortly for any vessels that are not restricted by draft limits or that do not have to transit through a restricted area. Baytown is one of the places above the restricted areas and therefore ships cannot transit from or to facilities there. According to the pilots, the current is running at ten knots in the channel due to floodwaters moving to the sea. A total of 14 ships are in port and 24 are at anchorage awaiting inbound transit. Currents in the channel are of concern to pilots. They are watching conditions closely. Additionally, all terminals must have completed this post-storm assessment and must be inspected by USCG prior to receiving traffic. Source: Inchcape Shipping Services

Lake Charles Update
MSU Lake Charles: The unit has implemented Port Condition Port Recovery. Ship movements started at 03:00AM with a vessel sailing from the Port of Lake Charles. All movements must be approved by the MSU prior to scheduling a pilot. Lake Charles Pilots: The pilots confirmed that traffic is moving well since the port’s reopening. They requested delaying an inbound vessel until Friday morning so to arrive in the area of the Port of Lake Charles after daylight, because of the strong currents moving through the area. There are only five more ships scheduled to come in and traffic should basically be caught up by about noon on Friday. The Port of Lake Charles advises that all conditions are normal and they will be standing down from Safe Harbor at 02:30 hours on Friday. Two vessels remain in port and will change to layberth status. US Army Corps of Engineers reports that a contracted vessel shall arrive tomorrow morning to work the offshore channel starting at the jetties. Other surveys in the area are ongoing with existing assets and more are on the way. Customs & Border Protection in Port Arthur remains closed and inaccessible due to flooding.

WGMA Port Arthur PCT participated on the call and provided this report: Favorable winds and sea conditions have been noted offshore. Winds from the west at 10-15 knots, and seas are at 1-2 feet. Similar conditions expected well into the weekend. All tropical and marine related watches and advisories have been cancelled for the Texas coast. The Captain of the Port (COTP), Port Arthur has set Port Condition Recovery for the ports of Beaumont, TX; Port Arthur, TX; Orange, Texas; and Lake Charles, LA including all tributaries and connecting waterways effective at 10:00AM on Thursday 31 August. Restrictions on vessel movements within these port complexes will be managed by the Captain of the Port and Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) Port Arthur.

Vessel movement restrictions will be evaluated and updated regularly as additional surveys are conducted.
