Cuxport handles crane parts weighing several tonnes for the NYK Bulk & Projects shipping company
The port services company Cuxport handled a project consignment for the German agent of the Japanese shipper NYK Bulk & Projects through berth 3 at the Europa quay for the first time at the end of July. The crane parts weighing several tonnes were loaded on board the 175-metre long freighter MS Imari for shipment from Cuxhaven to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. The Cuxport terminal provided an ideal consolidation and shipping port for this project load coming from various production sites because of its good geographical location and its suitability for handling heavy loads. A coastal vessel delivered the jibs that were up to 36 metres long and made by Liebherr in Rostock via the Baltic Sea. The tower parts were transported to Cuxport from a production site in Sunderland in Great Britain by heavy-duty truck via the British ferry port at Immingham on a vessel operated by the DFDS ferry company. After their arrival at their destination in Vietnam, the components will be used to assemble two new port cranes.

Update - Floating bomb moving towards Canary Islands
As of 0520 UTC Aug 22, bulk carrier CHESHIRE was some 110 nautical miles southwest of Hierro Island, Canary Islands. During last 24 hours, disabled and burning (?) vessel changed direction of her drift, and now is drifting towards Hierro Island at a rather high speed of 2.5-3.0 knots, driven most probably, by current, because weather and wind seem to be fair. CHESHIRE is followed by three SAR tugs, RED SEA FOS, MIGUEL DE SERVANTES and VB HISPANIA, and Moroccan port tug JACQUES 2. Tugs are moving in a box-like formation, with sides of the box being some 2-2.5 nautical miles long. Officials, in latest statements dated Aug 21, again said that the tugs are cooling burning vessel. Cooling with what, may I ask? SAR tugs pour water or foam on a burning vessel through their water cannons, which means dozens of meters distance from their object, not miles. If water cannons of deployed tugs don’t deliver water to their target in shells or missiles, official statements have to be considered, therefore, as doubtful. There’s no detailed analysis yet, with assessment of risk of explosion, let alone expertise on explosion scale and possible consequences, including destructive dangers of a wave, generated by an explosion. maritimebulletin....
