Zuiderdam - Northumbrian Quay, 2nd July 2017

What's that massive cruise ship docked at North Shields?
By Simon Meechan 2 July 2017

If you’re by the coast you may have noticed a very large boat docked in North Shields.

The 15-deck MS Zuiderdam is a Rotterdam-registered cruiseliner which arrived in North Shields at 8am today after sailing from Queensferry Edinburgh this morning. But it won’t be here long, as the 29m long, 57m tall Zuiderdam set sail for Copenhagen at 5pm tonight.

Once in Denmark, the Zuiderdam will embark on a 12-night cruise around the Baltic, calling at the German port of Kiel, Estonia’s capital Tallinn, St Petersburg in Russia, Helsinki in Finland, Stockholm in Sweden, Warnemunde in Germany and then back to Copenhagen.

First launched in 2001, Holland-America Line’s Zuiderdam can carry a maximum of 2,272 passengers. The luxury liner is home to an extensive art collection, featuring pieces by Andy Warhol and Charles Ben. Its showpiece is a Waterford Crystal Seahorse, which is suspended in a three-storey atrium.

MS Zuiderdam cost around $430 million to build and weighs in at 82,05 tones. But the Zuiderdam is not the largest passenger ship to dock in the Tyne.Last August, Holland America’s 99,500 ton, 297.2m long Koningsdam broke the port’s record when it sailed into North Shields.

Zuiderdam was last in the Port of Tyne back on 27th May 2016 - see photographs taken then @ http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...postcount=1555

These photographs of the ship alongside The Northumbrian Quay taken yesterday, 2nd July 2017.

Record transshipment results for the Port of Gdansk

The 1st half of 2017 was a record one for the Port of Gdansk Authority in terms of transshipments. At the same time, in June 2017, the Gdansk port achieved the highest monthly result in its history, handling over 3.6 million tonnes. Such good results are mostly due to the increase in the transshipment of fuels and general cargo, particularly containers and ro-ro type cargo.

The summary of the 1st half of the year at the Port of Gdansk provides a basis for further good forecasts. The port recorded the best result in its history in terms of transshipments, achieving a value several percent higher than in the same period of 2016.
General cargo remains the dominant group in the transshipment structure, bringing record results (+10.5% y/y) at the same time. The volume of container cargo, products from the "steel" group, and the number of commercial vehicles handled also increased.

"We are closing the first half of 2017 with a great degree of satisfaction. We owe the record mainly to the high level of container, general cargo, fuel and ro-ro transshipments. We can currently talk about a 3.6 percent increase compared to the 1st half of 2016. This means that we not only achieved our targets for 2017, but also exceeded them on some levels. This trend will continue until the end of the year, and most probably also in the coming years," says President of the Board and General Manager of the Port of Gdansk Authority SA, Lukasz Greinke.

In total, in the 1st half of this year, the Port of Gdansk handled over 18.5 million tonnes. Although in some cargo groups, the result was lower than in the previous period, this was successfully made up for by other goods, including goods as significant as fuels.
In terms of structure, in June this year, dry cargo constituted 22%, liquid cargo 35%, and general cargo 43%. The number of passengers served by vessels at the port is also growing.

The Port of Gdansk is one of the largest and most important enterprises in Poland. It is one of the most thriving ports in the Baltic Sea. It is of fundamental significance to the national economy and constitutes a key international distribution hub.

Shipping News
From the Aug. 7, 2017, issue of THE WEEKLY STANDARD
http://www.weeklystandard.com/shippi...ticle/2009071#!
Quote:
Since 2008, when it signed a 35-year lease with the Piraeus Port Authority to operate two container piers, COSCO has increased throughput from 700,000 twenty-foot-equivalent units (teu, roughly the volume of one 20-foot shipping container) to what it estimates will be over 4 million this year. Within the next five years, Piraeus is scheduled to handle 7.2 million teu annually, which would make it the Mediterranean’s biggest cargo hub and behind only Rotterdam, Antwerp, and Hamburg in Europe. COSCO has sunk 600 million euros into shoring up the strength of the piers to shoulder the weight of containers stacked six stories high, doubling the size of the second pier, and installing 33 of the tallest gantry cranes in the world, capable of loading and unloading container ships so large, they have not yet been built. By the time COSCO completes renovations, Piraeus will be the only Mediterranean port capable of harboring five giga-container vessels simultaneously.

A huge cargo ship has got stuck in the Western Scheldt. Traffic on the Scheldt Estuary is heavily disrupted, as only smaller cargo ships can pass to reach the port of Antwerp. A first attempt to get the ship going again, failed. A second attempt will be made at high tide, tonight around 8 o'clock. It seems the ship had a technical failure, going straight ahead in a curve where it had to go left, running aground at relatively high speed.
