Starting from 2020, what is claimed to be worlds first autonomous ship is planned to be put in service between the Yara factory at Herøya and the ports of Larvik and Breivik, all in Norway. The ship will be electric. The ship is expected to be delivered from the wharf and be put through early testing next year. It replaces approximately 40.000 yearly trips which trucks that covers this stretch today.

This is absolutely great, but how will this autonomous mooring work?

Despite being modern-minded guy, I'm afraid of autonomy on merchant and tourism vessels. I mean... containers being loaded, portainers and transtainers working, vessel moored, sailing, navigation, berthing, unloading... all of this without NO ONE ON BOARD?????

I wish I could come to Recife one day but unfortunately my ship does not call any ports and the closest one to me is 150 Nm away from Rio de Janeiro

World’s only engineless sailing cargo ship towed to safety in North Shields

From today's Shields Gazette @ http://www.shieldsgazette.com/news/w...elds-1-8577491
World’s only engineless sailing cargo ship towed to safety in North Shields
Sophie Brownson 4 June 2017


Tynemouth RNLI all weather lifeboat tows the Tres Hombres to safety at North Shields. Pic by Adrian Don from the RNLI.

The world’s only engineless sailing cargo ship was towed to safety by Tynemouth RNLI lifeboat this morning.

The lifeboat and volunteer crew members were asked to help by the skipper of the Brigantine-type sailing ship Tres Hombres after a motor launch belonging to the vessel broke down and had to be towed back to her mother ship by Cullercoats RNLI lifeboat.

The skipper of the Tres Hombres - a 32m,128tonne vessel - then asked for assistance in getting it to a safe harbour because as the boat is powered only by sail and has no auxiliary engine, meaning she relied on the now broken-down motor launch to maneuver in port. With very strong winds expected on Monday, the vessel could have been in a precarious situation so, after discussions with UK Coastguard, it was decided that the safest option for it was to tow her into the river Tyne.

Tynemouth RNLI's all weather lifeboat launched at 10.44am and made best speed to the Tres Hombres, which was anchored off Whitley Bay with Cullercoats RNLI lifeboat standing by her. Once the lifeboat met the sailing ship the volunteer crew quickly got her under tow, while a crew member went on board to ensure the tow ropes remained secure. The Tres Hombres and her crew of 15 were then taken to North Shields Western Quay without further incident, escorted by Cullercoats RNLI lifeboat who put two crew members ashore on the quay to assist with mooring. Once the sailing vessel was made fast on the quay the lifeboats returned to their respective stations.

Further Investmant at Port of Tyne

Further Investmant at Port of Tyne
6 June 2017



The Port of Tyne took delivery of two purpose built eco hoppers today, Tuesday 6 June 2017 - at a cost of £4.5 m - marking a major milestone in the development of around £100 m of new infrastructure at the Port's South Shields base in the North East.

Arriving by sea, the 19m tall structures were designed to the Port's specification, building upon its leading expertise in the handling of wood pellet, a renewable fuel for power stations. The hi-tech, fully automated hoppers are integral to the import of wood pellet for Lynemouth Power Station, in south Northumberland, which by the end of 2017 will have been converted from coal-fired to biomass power generation.
The conversion is one of the largest civil engineering projects in the UK, with a total of £300m invested by Lynemouth Power Limited (LPL).

The Port of Tyne has invested £38m in upgrading quay capacity, extending its main Riverside Quay by 125 metres, and in specialist handling and storage equipment including the hoppers. Three 36m high silos and 1300m of enclosed conveyors are under construction at the Port. In total, the project has created 1,000 jobs in construction alone and when completed is expected to provide 130 full time jobs.

The Port of Tyne was the first UK port to handle wood pellet for power stations as they began to switch from coal to renewable fuels, and has developed expertise in handling the specialist cargo since 2009. In 2016 the Port of Tyne handled 1.1 million tonnes of wood pellets and from 2017 will handle a further 1.8 million tonnes per year for Lynemouth Power.

Andrew Moffat, Port of Tyne Chief Executive Officer, said: "Since the UK's decision to shift away from coal-fired power generation we have been putting in place the infrastructure to handle, store and transport the wood pellet cargoes. The investments we have made in increasing Port capacity, including £25m spent extending and upgrading Riverside Quay and a total of £13m to provide the facilities for Lynemouth Power Ltd, has ensured that we are in a good position to replace the coal volumes that had virtually disappeared by the end of 2016."

Genoa's port slated for enlargment

The Italian government is set to finance the construction of the Port of Genoa's new seawall, a project that will cost about €1 billion overall, according to Infrastructure Minister Graziano Delrio. The enlargement is necessary to allow easy access for big modern container ships into Italy’s main port and ensure that the country has a harbor at the same level of those in Northern Europe.

In the meantime, China's interest for the port system in the surrounding region of Liguria is becoming more concrete, Delrio said. “All the goods operators want to get as close as possible to their destination: so the Chinese, aside from historic Venice, are looking for another mooring place that allows them to quickly reach Southern Europe,” he said. “It is clear that the Ligurian ports are at the center of their interest: we talked about them when we visited the Chinese government with President Sergio Mattarella, we talked about them several times, also I did personally, and it seems to me that this interest is becoming more concrete.”


During a high level meeting on logistics in Northwestern Italy that took place in Genoa, Delrio met the regional governors of Ligura, Piedmont and Lombardy: Giovanni Toti, Sergio Chiamparino and Roberto Maroni. Since last year when the first edition of the gathering was held, the presidents have formed a steering committee for logistical infrastructure in the Northwest, the industrial heart of Italy.

The three governors signed a document with which they express the “common will to contribute” to the Ferrobonus 2017-2019 incentive scheme, which is in a final phase of approval, “to strengthen the use of railways between the Ligurian ports and the Piedmont and Lombardy hinterland,” said Delrio.

The minister signed a protocol of intent with Toti and regional port authorities aimed at the development of the Ligurian ports. This document expresses intent to earmark resources for the new seawall of Genoa, proposing it among the national projects which are eligible for financing “within the EU-China connectivity platform.”

“When the project is ready, the seawall of Genoa will be financed,” said Delrio. “We have the availability of the Cassa depositi e prestiti (CDP) to build an ad hoc fund for financing the port works: a fund for the ports because they are central in our view. Therefore, we are ready to get going straightway and widen the first opening of the seawall in the Sampierdarena zone, and then construct the rest. We know that this work is strategic for the competitiveness of Genoa, and just as there will not be uncertainty around the connection for the third railway crossing, there must not be uncertainty when we identify a strategic infrastructure project for the future of our country. The moment we decide, the country has to move forward.”

For the new seawall, with a cost estimated at €1 billion, port authorities in the Western Ligurian sea have already earmarked €10 million in the forecast budget, for the planning. Delrio then clarified that the work done with CDP “is nearing conclusion.”

He added that the port fund “wants to put together public and private financing and give a constant support to port infrastructure works for the coming years. We are in an extremely advanced phase,” he said.

World’s only engineless sailing cargo ship leaves River Tyne after a week of Geordie hospitality

World’s only engineless sailing cargo ship leaves River Tyne after a week of Geordie hospitality
Sonia Sharma 10 June 2017


Tres Hombres leaving the Tyne (Photo: John Baker)

This is the moment the world’s only engineless sailing cargo ship left the River Tyne after a week of Geordie hospitality.

The Tres Hombres became stranded off Whitey Bay last Sunday morning and was helped to safety by Tyneside RNLI crews. The skipper had asked for assistance in getting his vessel to a safe harbour. As it was powered only by sail and had no auxiliary engine, it usually relied on a motor launch to manoeuvre in port, however that motor launch had broken down. Due to strong winds forecast the following day, the Coastguard called the RNLI whose crew members towed the dingy back to the mother ship - a 32m,1 28 tonne sailing vessel.

The Tres Hombres and her crew of 15 were then taken to North Shields Western Quay safely and were there until Saturday. One crew member, Malcolm Lilley, from Gateshead , said they were bowled over by the kindness of fellow Geordie strangers. He added: “The people have been so helpful here, you wouldn’t believe it. One man took our canisters, drove them away, filled them up and brought them back and he wouldn’t take any money. So we gave him five chocolate bars to say thank you.”

On Saturday, Tres Hombres was escorted back out of the Tyne by a lifeboat. The ship was expected to head to the Netherlands for a refit.

Port of Tyne sees turnover fall 22% as it seeks new sources of revenue

Port of Tyne sees turnover fall 22% as it seeks new sources of revenue
By Graeme Whitfield 20 June 2017


Port of Tyne from the air (Photo: handout from Rebecca Taylor PR 07830 159 996)

The Port of Tyne saw turnover slump in 2016 as massive falls in its traditional cargo business sparked investment in new ways of attracting revenue.

The Port saw conventional and bulk cargo halve in 2016, leading to a 22% drop in turnover from £58.8m to £45.9m. A number of global factors - particularly the shift away from coal-fire power stations, which meant no coal was imported to the Port in 2016 - affected the Port’s financial results.

The Port’s reaction to those factors has seen it invest £14.6m to develop its infrastructure, with the bulk of that - £8.8m - being spent on facilities to handle wood pellets that will be imported for use on the Lynemouth Power Station in Northumberland after its re-fit to renewable energy production. The drop in business at the port led to a corresponding decrease in employment, with 437 members of staff at the end of the year, down by 46 on the same stage in 2015.

In the Port’s annual report, chairman Hilary Florek said: “In 2016, the Port of Tyne has performed well across all of its business areas, with the exception of conventional and bulk cargoes which have been adversely impacted by the dramatic reduction in imported coal volumes across the UK during the past three years. Port of Tyne coal volumes adversely impacted the overall financial performance, and profitability of the business in 2016. The Port, however, is in a strong position to recover from the decline in coal handling as construction of new multimillion-pound wood pellet handling and storage facilities for Lynemouth Power Ltd (LPL) is well under way and due for commissioning in the second half of 2017. Associated volumes are anticipated to be in excess of 1.8m tonnes per annum over an agreement period of 10 years.

“The business will also be in a position to benefit from the investment made in extending its main operational Riverside Quay, which when commissioned will be nearly 1 kilometre in length. The Port is also well-placed to accommodate expansion opportunities having two large sites each having Enterprise Zone status, available for development. Activity at the Port’s three car terminals has remained strong and the business has retained its position as the UK’s No. 2 exporting port. During the year, a record number of passengers used the Port’s International Passenger Terminal as a result of a record number of cruise ships visiting the Port.
