I think too.

P.S.
'Gioia Tauro' is correct name.

Port of Utrecht

along the Amsterdam-Rhine canal, it is an important inland port and can even be reached by small sea-going vessels.
There are plans to use it to avoid delays by traffic jams, to serve companies in the region.

Plug & Play initiative for bio-based industry

The Port of Rotterdam Authority enters into a unique co-operation with E.ON, Evides Industriewater, Stedin and Vopak. On Friday 30 August these parties signed an agreement with the aim of creating an 80-hectare ‘Plug & Play area’ on Maasvlakte 2. This means they will cooperate to offer (mains) services to businesses which want to set up in the Bio-based Cluster planned here. Hans Smits, CEO of the Port Authority: “This collaboration is a major step for the port of Rotterdam to grow into the international bio port.”


Artist impression
An area of more than 80 hectares (about 120 football pitches) on Maasvlakte 2 has been reserved for innovative chemical industry based on renewable raw materials. The Port Authority and its four partners will do their best in the coming years to provide combined services for this area. Thanks to this joint initiative, businesses which establish themselves here no longer have to make their own investments in the supply of power for instance or power networks, tank storage and waste, process and drinking water. And thus a Plug & Play concept is born. Hans Smits: “We want to be able to offer a basic infrastructure, so that the bio-based businesses can concentrate fully on their core activities.” The aim is to install a number of (mains) services which the various bio-based businesses can use. Integration with existing businesses on Maasvlakte 1 is also possible.

Bio-based Cluster
Bio fuels, bio energy and the bio chemical industry are in the spotlight throughout the world. Many companies recognise great benefits in sustainable energy generation and the processing of ‘green’ raw materials. The port of Rotterdam also offers space for the expansion of industry based on renewable raw materials, especially on Maasvlakte 2. “Bio-based industries are indispensable to the sustainable development of our port,” according to Hans Smits. However, it should not be taken for granted that the area will fill up quickly, as the port of Rotterdam as a place to establish businesses competes with locations around the globe. Hans Smits is still convinced that the port of Rotterdam is highly attractive for new factories. “Besides the benefits of scale, businesses can take maximum advantage of each other’s presence in our Bio-based Cluster. The residual product from the one can be the raw material for the other.”

Rotterdam Bio Port
For decades, industry and logistics have formed the mainstays of the Rotterdam port complex. Thanks to its favourable position and the courage to take steps in the known and the unknown, the port has developed into an important European hub with a highly sustainable and efficient character. The Port of Rotterdam Authority continually seeks cooperation with other parties in the fields of knowledge, supply chain collaboration and clustering, among others. With this method, the port of Rotterdam is well on its way to becoming the bio port of North-western Europe. Bio fuel handling grew by another 25 percent in 2012 to 6 million tonnes. Hans Smits: “This Plug & Play concept is yet another good example of the integration of knowledge, infrastructure, products and services in Rotterdam Bio Port.”

Last August was the so called 'Week of the giants' in the port of Rotterdam. Pretty cool stuff with some of the largest ships on the planet on visit:

Quote:
Thanks to its unique depth, the largest vessels in the world will be moored in the port of Rotterdam this week. On Friday 16 August, all attention will focus on the first visit of the Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller. With a capacity of 18,000 TEU (twenty-foot containers), a length of 399 metres and a width of 59 metres, this vessel is by far the largest container ship in the world.
At that moment, a few other massive ships will be present in the port. The Ti Europe will be moored at Dolphins 80 in the Calandkanaal. With a length of 380 metres and width of 69 metres, this white tanker is the largest oil tanker in the world still in operation (DWT 420,000 tonnes). In addition to this, the Vale Rio is expected at EMO in the Mississippihaven on the morning of Friday, 16 August. This ship, the largest iron ore vessel in the world, measures 362 metres by 65 metres. Two years ago, the ship succeeded the Berge Stahl as the biggest iron ore carrier. The Berge Stahl will also be in the port on Friday, at EECV. The vessel measures ‘only’ 343 metres by 63.5 metres.

Increase in scale
The Berge Stahl has been sailing between Brazil and Rotterdam since 1986. For years, the ship was by far the largest vessel to call at Rotterdam, apart from a few massive oil tankers. The arrival of the new generation of iron ore vessels and container ships confirms the huge increase in scale that has taken place in shipping in recent years. This is also reflected in the port statistics. In 2006, the first container ship with a capacity of more than 10,000 TEU arrived; in 2011, 362 of such container ships called at the port. Last year, this number had already risen to 487. Despite the steady increase in throughput to over 440 million tonnes, the number of ships arriving in Rotterdam has fallen in recent years from 35,000 to 32,000.

Depth
The largest vessels in the world visit the port of Rotterdam. This is due to the depth of the port, up to almost 23 metres (the height of an eight-storey block of flats), and thanks to the Eurogeul, a channel in the North Sea stretching for 57 kilometres and with a guaranteed depth of 25 metres. This depth is mainly needed for iron ore vessels and oil tankers. When fully loaded, the Vale Rio has a draught of 23 metres and the Ti Europe a massive 24.5 metres. The Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller ‘only’ has a maximum draught of 16 metres. The unique thing about the port of Rotterdam is that this ship can access the Europahaven 24 hours a day, in normal circumstances.

my POV: next to the Gate terminal 50 meter high tanks




De Vale Rio de Janeiro


Southern Harmony, 292 meter long:

APM Terminals
Mega-crane incoming
in the port of Gothenburg





Gothenburg - The APM terminal in Gothenburg has signed the acquisition of two of the largest post-Panamax cranes in the world, along with two other cranes on rails. The facilities will be operational from next year. At the moment there are eight quay cranes, two cranes on rails, and five tracks.

The pieces of the new crane will be transported to Gothenburg in October 2014, and will be mounted directly inside the terminal, according to what they know by the Port Authority. The Swedish mega-terminal began operating in January 2012.

The grant is expected to invest APM on the structure of 123.3 million dollars. In addition to cranes, APM will to restructure 900 meters of quay, build a warehouse in partnership with DB Schenker, design a terminal for liquefied natural gas.
