Description International Container Terminal Services Inc., (ICTSI) said it plans to dredge to allow bigger ships to dock in its Croatia operation. The company said its unit, Adriatic Gate Container Terminal (AGCT), has drawn up plans for a two-phase dredging scheme in close cooperation with the Rijeka Port Authority. The first phase already been approved. “The operation entails the dredging of 130 meters of the quay over its Berths 1 and 2. This will facilitate the berthing of vessels with a length overall (LOA) of up to 400 meters. The work will be completed by mid-2020, and will provide 438 meters of berth with a depth alongside of 15 meters,” ICTSI said. “Financing for the infrastructure works has been provided by the EU and PRA, with ICTSI undertaking all the associated necessary investment in quayside and landside handling systems, as well as the increased coverage of the terminal’s state-of-the-art IT systems,” it added. ICTSI said the second phase will entail an additional dredging alongside the 438m of quay to a depth of 16.5 meters. Once completed, this project will make AGCT the first terminal in the northern Adriatic able to berth vessels of up to 20,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) capacity, with an LOA of up to 400 meters and beam of 59 meters, the company said. “We have decided to do this against a background of steady demand but, more importantly, to keep pace with the requirements of our clients in terms of both ship size and a rise in intermodal rail activity,” said Wojciech Szymulewicz, AGCT chief executive officer. “The capacity expansion will also deliver an overall boost to efficiency levels at the terminal, building upon the strengths we have already established in terms of vessel and truck turnaround as well as intermodal rail connectivity,” he added. ICTSI said the effort is complemented with the arrival of Super Post Panamax cranes with an outreach of at least 24 rows, as part of the berth upgrade; and new rubber tyred gantries (RTGs) and prime movers introduced on the landside. “Work is also now advanced on upgrading AGCT’s on-dock rail terminal to offer an annual capacity of 360,000 TEUs per year. The upgraded rail yard will feature two new rail mounted gantries (RMGs) over four rail lines. The upgrade will be completed in the last quarter of 2019,” ICTSI said. “Total terminal yard capacity will be increased up to 600,000 TEUs per year in line with demand,” it added. ICTSI said AGCT is configured to optimize road and rail connectivity. For trucks, the terminal offers a direct connection to the highway and a competitive average truck dwell time of just 13 minutes in the export cycle and 19 minutes in the import cycle. Approximately 40 percent of the terminal’s annual throughput now moves via rail, and this is expected to increase up to a level of 60 percent. Regular services operated by rail directly from AGCT include cross border services to Hungary, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and within Croatia to the capital city of Zagreb. With spare capacity in the rail system and a fully liberalized rail market in operation, providing access to private rail operators, AGCT is very confident that working with its shipping line clients and common user operators will continue to extend its market reach and grow the terminal’s rail market share. “The Port of Rijeka and AGCT are a very competitive option in the Adriatic,” said Hans-Ole Madsen, ICTSI Senior Vice President and Regional Head of Europe-Middle East-Africa. “While the volume through AGCT has risen modestly year on year, the expansion program will future proof the terminal in terms of both providing new volume capacity for the longer term and meeting new system requirements, notably accommodating bigger vessels and boosting the intermodal rail capability. The program has involved close client liaison and study of all relevant market factors, and we are confident AGCT will meet the needs of container lines calling Rijeka and of cargo owners for the foreseeable future,” he added. - Reuters

Description Australian Industrial Energy (AIE) said it has awarded the key wharf facility and pipeline construction contract for the Port Kembla LNG import facility to SCSB joint venture. AIE is aiming to help New South Wales businesses obtain reliable supplies of gas beyond 2020 by building a natural gas import terminal at Port Kembla near Wollongong. The PKGT will have the capacity to supply over 70 percent of NSW’s natural gas needs, AIE said in its statement. SCSB is a joint venture which comprises Spiecapag and Soletanche Bachy, which are international specialists in the core construction works required to build the PKGT wharf facility and pipeline connection to the Cringila Eastern Gas Pipeline connection point just six kilometers from the wharf. The award of the contract follows the NSW State Government’s decision to grant development consent for the project in April 2019 and AIE welcoming its first customer, EnergyAustralia, which has committed to a five-year contract of at least 15PJs of gas per annum from 2021. Planning design is underway for the PKGT and construction will commence immediately after the AIE joint venture partners complete their final investment decision which is expected later this year. Construction work will include dredging, a new wharf within the existing Port Kembla dock and the pipeline to connect the new facility to the east coast gas network at Cringila. The PKGT represents a $250m investment and will provide work and subcontracting opportunities for experts in demolition, concreting, welding, electrical works, steel reinforcement, traffic management, surveying, alongside other goods and services, with an estimated $76m being sub-contracted to local businesses.

Description Two government agencies and the Port of Rotterdam are planning to deploy the installation at De Slufter, a 250-hectare depot for contaminated sediment. APRIL 24, 2019 EMILIANO BELLINI HIGHLIGHTS MARKETS UTILITY-SCALE PV NETHERLANDS Floating solar projects, like this one in Singapore, are proving a popular option in the Netherlands. Image: SERIS ShareIcon FacebookIcon TwitterIcon LinkedInIcon Google PlusIcon WhatsAppIcon Email A contaminated water basin at the Maasvlakte – an artificial extension of the Europoort industrial facility at the port of Rotterdam – may host a giant floating solar project. Netherlands water management agency the Rijkswaterstaat – part of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment – said it has started market consultation for the tendering of a 100 MW project named Zon op de Slufter with government real estate agency the Rijksvastgoedbedrijf and the port of Rotterdam. The plant would be on the “slufter” dredging spoil depot, which has a 250-hectare surface. The agency added, the floating plant would not disrupt the primary function of the basin, which is spoil storage. “The ambition is to start the tender procedure for the project at the beginning of 2020, depending on the results of a feasibility study that is currently taking place,” the agency wrote in a project announcement. The floating PV tide The facility would be part of the Hernieuwbare energie op Rijks(waterstaat)-areaal program, launched by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) and the Rijkswaterstaat in March. The main goal of the program is to make surfaces available for ground-mounted and floating PV. The program has four pilot projects, including the 100 MW floating solar scheme, plus three more projects for solar noise barriers along Dutch highways. In January 2018, the RVO agreed to back a new Dutch consortium whose goal is to develop the flexible design of floating solar panels on inland waters and make optimal use of the available water surface area. The consortium was formed by the Energy Research Center of the Netherlands (ECN); the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research; the Maritime Research Institute Netherlands; Abu Dhabi National Energy Company PJSC (TAQA); and Oceans of Energy, a Dutch startup specializing in the development of floating systems for renewable energy at sea. Water-borne projects taking shape In late February, the Dutch Foundation for Applied Water Research published guidelines and tools for developers interested in floating PV projects across the water-rich Netherlands. Earlier this month, Dutch developer Groenleven unveiled a plan to build a 48 MW floating installation at a depleted sand extraction site near Emmen, in Drenthe province. The country’s first floating solar project was announced in September 2017.

Description UAE’s National Marine Dredging Company (NMDC) has awarded a contract to Stevin Rock for the supply of rock to ADNOC’s Ghasha artificial island construction project. NMDC said via its social media channels on Wednesday that the contract awarded to Stevin Rock was worth AED 415 million ($113 million). The contract was signed by Yasser Zaghloul, NMDC CEO, and Naser Bustami, Stevin Rock Director. To remind, the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) awarded a $1.4 billion deal to NMDC in early February for the construction of artificial islands to develop, drill, and produce gas from the Ghasha offshore concession. The project entails building ten new islands, two new causeways, and expanding an existing island. NMDC added in Wednesday’s statement that the Stevin Rock deal would serve almost eight percent of the in-country value of the total contract awarded by ADNOC. The Ghasha Concession consists of the Hail, Ghasha, Dalma and other offshore sour gas fields including Nasr, SARB, and Mubarraz. The Hail, Ghasha, and Dalma ultra-sour gas project will tap into the Arab basin, which is estimated to hold multiple trillions of standard cubic feet of recoverable gas. The project is expected to produce more than 1.5 billion cubic feet of gas per day when it comes on stream around the middle of the next decade.

Description [Reporter Li Yawen/Taipei reported] The shortage of supply and demand in the southern sandstone shortage, the Public Works Committee of the Executive Yuan (Engineering Association) pointed out that the stable supply has been restored, and the procurement strategy will be developed in the future to prevent the price of gravel and ready-mixed concrete. Fluctuations caused public works to fail smoothly. The shortage of supply and demand in the south of the sandstone is mainly due to the inconsistency of the dredging sandstone in Gaopingxi, and the lack of transportation capacity of the sandstone transport vehicles, which affects the supply of sand and gravel in the south. Wu Zecheng, member of the Administrative Council and the chairman of the Engineering Council, said that the Ministry of Economic Affairs has been required to do a good job in source management. From the place of origin, processing to use, it is indeed in control of the supply and demand situation of sand and gravel and ready-mixed concrete, and the market price. On the supervision report, the supply and demand of sand and stone and the price situation will be announced at any time, the actual situation of the market will be transparent, and the expectation of price increase will be prevented. The project is currently researching the procurement strategy response measures, including the possibility of changing the procurement of materials by the agency, or the project contractor to set up a simple premixing plant on the site, and planning to use it as a reference for procurement by various government agencies.
