    PSA International has signed an agreement with the Polish Development Fund (PFR) and the IFM Global Infrastructure Fund (GIF) to jointly acquire DCT Gdańsk, the largest container terminal in Poland.

    The shares would be purchased from Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA) managed fund Global Infrastructure Fund II, MTAA Super, AustralianSuper and Statewide Super.

    With a quay length of 1,306 meters and a maximum depth of 17 meters, DCT Gdańsk is the only terminal in the Baltic that can serve ultra large container vessels (ULCVs), the world’s largest container ships with a capacity of up to 23,000 TEUs.

    Following a significant capital expenditure programme, the port’s capacity doubled in 2016 with the completion of a second quay. Container volumes have grown steadily over the years to reach 1.9 million TEUs in 2018.

    Given the constant growth and development of the business, the terminal is expected to reach full capacity utilisation in the upcoming years. To allow for further development of DCT Gdańsk, PSA, PFR and IFM Investors will explore the construction of a new expansion area and further increases in capacity.

    “DCT Gdańsk is PSA’s first investment in Eastern Europe, and we look forward to working closely with our partners PFR and IFM to further develop its facilities and to strengthen its position as the preferred port of call for Poland and the Baltic Sea,” Tan Chong Meng, Group CEO of PSA International, said.

    “Through leveraging our global network and our expertise in creating value for the port and shipping communities, PSA will partner with shipping lines, logistics operators and cargo owners to deliver more efficient, flexible and robust supply chain solutions for the region.”

    Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) is the first airport community in the world to be certified as an IATA CEIV Fresh Partner Airport.

    Perishable cargo volumes grew about 12% at the airport last year and are expected to keep growing. Perishables make up about 8% of total air cargo volume.

    Two of HKIA’s cargo terminals, Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (HACTL) and Cathay Pacific Services Limited (CPSL), have achieved the certification and Cathay Pacific, the home-based carrier at HKIA, is expected to complete validation of the certification within a few months.

    The IATA Center of Excellence for Perishable Logistics (CEIV Fresh) certification is a global standard to ensure excellence in the transportation and handling of perishable air cargo, which requires stringent temperature-controlled process at globally assured standards

    The certification process includes staff training, on-site assessment of facilities and handling processes to identify gaps as well as a final validation to ensure compliance to the standard.

    Hactl, which was presented with its certificate at IATA’s World Cargo Symposium in Singapore, created a new, fast-track ‘Fresh Lane’ through its handling processes, designed to create an organised and structured journey through its facility, and so minimise the time taken to unload perishable cargo and either release it to customers, or place it in temperature-controlled storage.

    Among other upgrades are the segregation of different perishable commodities through dedicated truck docks, and the mapping and visual marking of optimum storage positions in its cool rooms (its so-called ‘Blue Belt’). Dedicated active ULD charging areas have also been installed, already stringent hygiene and pest-control practices have been tightened further, and suppliers have been instructed on what they must do to comply with the new standard.

    Wilson Kwong, Hactl chief executive, said: “Certification such as CEIV Fresh is very useful to benchmark the quality and standard of an organisation, and Hactl applauds both IATA’s initiative in driving the adoption of CEIV Fresh throughout the industry, and HKIA’s leadership of this project in Hong Kong. We urge all air cargo businesses to join this movement towards uniformity, which will create higher service standards for perishables handling across the industry.”

    The Airbus Foundation and Air Senegal have organised their first goodwill flight to transport medical equipment, toys, clothes and books on the airline’s Airbus A330neo.

    The aircraft took off from Toulouse airport carrying 13 tonnes of goods donated by Aviation San Frontieres, L’Institut Universitaire du Cancer-Toulouse Oncopole and La Chaîne de l’Espoir to Air Senegal’s base at Blaise-Diagne International Airport in Dakar.

    The items will be distributed to the Centre Hospitalier de Saint-Louis du Sénégal and to the Foundation Servir Senegal, which is led by Marème Faye Sall, the first lady of Senegal.

    The Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT) has signed a US$238.7 million, 25-year agreement with terminal operator SSA Marine to develop and operate a new container terminal at the port's Blount Island Marine Terminal.

    SSA Marine will contribute up to US$129.7 million for the use of the terminal and facility upgrades, including the addition of three new 100-gauge container cranes. JAXPORT will complete US$109 million in berth rehabilitation and upgrades that are already underway and allow the terminal to accommodate two post-Panamax vessels simultaneously.

    “We are thrilled to partner with a major international terminal operator that is as dedicated as we are to contributing to the economic vitality of Northeast Florida,” said JAXPORT CEO Eric Green. “The significant investments SSA Marine has committed to this facility, accompanied by their unparalleled industry knowledge and experience, allows us to take full advantage of all of the opportunities the Jacksonville Harbor Deepening project creates for our port and our region.”

    The new facility is an expansion of SSA Marine’s current leasehold at Blount Island and will offer deepwater berthing space to accommodate fully loaded Post-Panamax container ships calling JAXPORT from Asia.

    The Seattle-based company has been a partner with the port for over 40 years and currently leases 50 acres at Blount Island that will expand to 80 acres with the new terminal that is estimated to create or protect 3,000 jobs over the first 10 years of the contract.

    “SSA Marine has a longstanding commitment to Jacksonville and we are proud to invest in this community in such a meaningful way,” said SSA Conventional president Mark Knudsen. “The port’s strong leadership team and strategic location in the growing southeast U.S. market—combined with the efficiencies created by a deeper harbor— give us the tools we need to operate a world-class container terminal and further position Jacksonville as a gateway for global trade.”

    SSA Marine is a privately-held marine terminal operator at more than 250 facilities and rail operations in the U.S., Canada, Latin and South America, Asia, New Zealand and South Africa.

    Cavotec has signed a order for its MoorMaster automated mooring system

    Cavotec has signed an agreement with a port operator to equip two berths at a terminal with its MoorMaster automated mooring systems.

    Cavotec declined to name the customer, but said the MoorMaster system will cover two berths, delivery will start in 2019 and the systems will enter service in 2020. The order value is approximately EUR 10.3 million, the majority of which will be booked in 2019 and the remainder in 2020.
     
    Cavotec now has competition in vacuum mooring system from Trelleborg Marine Systems, which has developed its own “Automoor” system to compete with MoorMaster.

    Cavotec notes that “Twenty years after the installation of the first system, it [MoorMaster] is the only proven and widely used automated mooring technology on the market. To date, around 280 MoorMaster units have performed some 500,000 moorings at ferry, bulk and container handling ports, as well as locks and ship-to-ship applications worldwide”.

    This application was installed to mitigate wave induced vessel motion at a 500m berth extension built outside the port’s breakwater. The system, which featured a total of 42 vacuum mooring units was designed to withstand temporary immersion during storm conditions when waves can overtop the berth.
     
    The MoorMaster units were installed in pairs, with one each side of a fender.
