Recently Ignited CCNI Arauco Returned to Owners

first_imgzoom The 300-meter-long container vessel CCNI Arauco, which ignited on September 1 in the German port of Hamburg, was returned to its owners after the teams on site extinguished the fire and completed the follow-on operations, according to marine and offshore services company Ardent Global.Following the incident, a salvage contract was signed to speed up the response and clean-up operations aboard the 2015-built containership, which lasted for four weeks.The aft hold was partly flooded to extinguish the fire, subsequently contaminating the water in the hold. The operations included discharging the contaminated water, which was pumped into tankers to bring it to off-site final disposal facilities.Additionally, the damaged containers, which were declared as dangerous waste and required special treatment, were discharged out of the vessels cargo hold.The boxship was subsequently returned to its owners for repair works.Earlier reports indicated that the incident could have started due to welding works which were being undertaken on the rear end of the ship, however, relevant authorities launched an investigation into the exact cause of the fire.With a length of 300 meters and a width of over 48 meters, the boxship was docked at the Port of Hamburg’s Burchardkai container terminal, at berth 1/2, at the time.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Komatsus commitment to Central Queensland with Mackay support facility

first_imgKomatsu Australia has opened a new customer support facility in Mackay, underscoring its commitment to the Central Queensland mining industry – and its confidence in the long-term future of the region. The new facility was opened by Mackay Mayor Councillor Deirdre Comerford on May 1, 2014, just 10 months after the site’s ground-breaking ceremony on June 27, 2014 – which was held as part of the opening of Komatsu’s new Mackay Mining Assembly facilities.It is part of an Australia-wide expansion program currently being undertaken by Komatsu, designed to increase capacity and capability at its sites around Australia.Features of Komatsu’s new Mackay customer support centre include:•    Total covered area of 1,800 m2•    A parts warehouse that is close to double the size of its existing Mackay facility, greatly expanding parts-holding capacity•    A service workshop able to handle the service requirements of ultra-class mining equipment•    A track press capable of servicing and overhauling tracks up to the largest size dozers and excavators•    Washbay•    Sales and customer support offices•    Fully trained technical staff across service and parts, integrated together on a single site•    30 t capacity workshop crane•    Support from a fully equipped fleet of mobile service trucks•    Designed to the highest safety and environmental standards.Equipment being serviced out of this new site includes Komatsu 960E ultra-class trucks – of which Central Queensland has the largest population in the world, said Dean Gaedtke, Komatsu Australia’s Queensland General Manager.It also services and supports WA900 and WA1200 wheel loaders, and up to PC8000 mining shovels – as well as all other sizes of Komatsu mining and construction equipment.“Our new Paget customer support facility is a major investment in our ability to better service our mining and construction industry customers throughout Central and North Queensland,” Gaedtke said.“As far as we are concerned, it’s a real vote of confidence in the Central Queensland mining industry, and indicates that we believe there is a long-term, stable future for the region.”Sean Taylor, Komatsu Australia’s Managing Director and CEO, said that over the past two years, Komatsu’s customer support capabilities have been significantly increased.“This regional expansion program allows us to provide the highest levels of support and service for our mining and construction customers into the future – not only for Queensland, but right across Australia and New Zealand,” he said.The company is currently engaged in a major expansion of its service and support facilities in Queensland – which now employ a total of 580 staff – and around Australia.This latest facility in Mackay is one element of Komatsu’s largest-ever expansion in Australia, a program which started with the opening of its flagship mining facility in Wacol, Brisbane in 2012.The 61,000 m2 Wacol facility was a A$55 million investment incorporating Komatsu Australia’s Queensland head office, its national mining headquarters, East Coast Reman operation, oil analysis labs, plus mining, construction and utility assembly operations, as well as parts and service.Other Komatsu facilities that have recently opened, or are under construction, include:Expansion of its Mackay Mining Assembly facilities (opened in mid-2013), which has increased mining assembly capacity by 75%, and now facilitates assembly of Komatsu’s largest truck, the 960E, which has a 330 t haulage capacity.Sherwood (Brisbane) training facility (opened in 2013)Expansion of its Perth Mining assembly facility (opened in 2013), increasing mining assembly capacity by 30% and doubling paint shop capacity.

Any member of the public is invited to tell their story. We want to hear a lot of stories, we’re really keen to get as many responses as possible.”As for the type of story, van Wylick says that’s up to you.“It’s very much open. We want people to be as creative as they can be. We’re not trying to give any guidelines as yet – we’re looking to connect with fans of the festival but also go beyond that.“Dublin is known as a storyteller’s city so it’s about the fabric of the city and the people.“Irish people are storytellers which is not an experience you get everywhere – this is about connection and expression.”The festival is keen to hear from anyone and everyone who would like to share their story in a creative way and reflect on ways in which great writing or reading have played a part in their lives.

There is no chance of finding Sala alive says rescuer

first_imgJohn Fitzgerald, director of operations of Channel Airline Airsearch, says the small plane where the Argentinean was traveling might have sunk in less than three minutes.After it was publicly known that a small plane carrying two people disappeared in the English Channel, authorities started looking for survivors.On the plane, Argentinean footballer and recent Cardiff City signing Emiliano Sala was traveling together with the pilot of the aircraft.“If they really are in the water, I would say there is no chance of finding them alive,” said Fitzgerald to Vía País in Argentina.“The other day I went swimming (on the English Channel) and only lasted for three minutes.”“It is very cold in these waters; one person could stay there an hour at the most. I do not think they have landed on land because air traffic would have been informed,” he explained.Sala recently signed for Cardiff City in the English Premier League, after he spent four years with French Ligue A club Nantes.Raheem Sterling, EnglandTop 5 best players from the international break weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 After a fresh international break just came to an end, we need to talk about the Top 5 best players during this whole weekend.We…“I was especially cold. In the first part of the investigation last night, the visibility was good, but we had to deal with the freezing rain that fell around 23.30,” Fitzgerald added.“As the investigation progressed, the cloud ceiling dropped and we had to stop the investigation.”“What we’re looking for first is the device’s black box. If the plane really crashed into the sea but remained in one piece, then you have to pay attention to the traces of oil that come to the surface,” he continued.“If it broke in flight, which can not be ruled out, for one reason or another, then we will find debris on the surface. But an airplane of this size that hits the water sinks in two or three minutes.”La Direction et l’ensemble du Club gardent espoir et c’est toute la famille du FC Nantes qui prie pour qu’@EmilianoSala1 et les autres passagers de l’avion soient enfin retrouvés sains et saufs.#PrayForSala https://t.co/i6POQinWLi— FC Nantes (@FCNantes) January 22, 2019last_img read more

Uneasy neighbors Proposed oil terminal fuels concern about toxic air in Fruit

first_img The proposalUnder the Tesoro-Savage proposal, oil would be hauled to the Port of Vancouver by train from North Dakota’s Bakken shale formation. The oil would be stored at the port and transferred to ships headed to U.S. refineries for conversion into transportation fuels. Savage, a supply-chain management company, and Tesoro, the West Coast’s largest refiner, say the terminal could handle 380,000 barrels of crude per day.The leaseThe Port of Vancouver commission unanimously approved a lease with Tesoro and Savage in late July. It held a second public hearing and vote on Oct. 22 in response to alleged violations of state public meetings law. The lease involves 42 acres and is worth at least $45 million to the port over an initial 10 years.Pros, conso The companies and the port say the project will generate about 250 temporary construction jobs and 120 full-time jobs, significantly boost local and state tax revenues, and help support U.S. energy independence and fill the gas tanks of consumers. The port says the deal would enable it to re-invest $30 million in further industrial development and to create a ripple effect of 2,700 direct and indirect jobs.o Critics raise numerous concerns, including the potential for oil spills on the Columbia River, new sources of toxic air pollution, the safety of hauling more oil by rail in light of recent wrecks, including July’s deadly oil train derailment and explosion in Canada, potential detrimental impacts on Vancouver’s $1.3 billion waterfront redevelopment plans and the worsening of global warming through continued fossil-fuel consumption.Decision-makersThe Washington state Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council will examine the proposal for at least a year before making a recommendation to Gov. Jay Inslee, who has the final say. The EFSEC’s “scoping” period to determine what will be evaluated in an environmental impact statement began Oct. 3 and ends at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 18. Eric LaBrant, president of the Fruit Valley neighborhood association, and others have concerns about the Tesoro-Savage proposal to build the largest oil-handling operation in the Northwest at the Port of Vancouver.last_img read more

ExBloomberg Businessweek EIC Moves to the Times People on the Move —

first_imgThe New York Times has named Ellen Pollock the new top editor of its business section. She was most recently the editor-in-chief of Bloomberg Businessweek, before being pushed out in a “deep change” that swept the magazine last November.  Pollock replaces Dean Murphy, who was promoted to associate editor after leading the business section for the last four years. This is just the latest move in reshaping the Times’ newsroom. Rebecca Blumenstein, deputy editor-in-chief of The Wall Street Journal, was recently named a deputy managing editor, and several other editors have been promoted to top leadership positions. Stephanie Wu has joined Mic as editor, food and travel, and will be responsible for overseeing Out of Office, the food and travel-focused digital channel that is set to launch in a few weeks. Wu was most recently senior editor at Travel + Leisure. Lori Fromm has rejoined Time Inc. as VP, brand sales. Fromm, who most recently was head of integrated sales and strategy for Glamour and Self, is now responsible for generating revenue for Time Inc.’s Lifestyle brands across platforms.

HBO Documentary Traces Rolling Stone Music Culture

first_imgNews Facebook HBO Documentary Traces ‘Rolling Stone’ Music Culture Twitter Email ‘Rolling Stone’ Doc Tracks Mag’s 50-Year History hbo-documentary-traces-rolling-stone-music-culture ‘Rolling Stone: Stories From The Edge’ presents publisher Jann Wenner and his magazine’s 50 years of influencing the culture it coveredPhilip MerrillGRAMMYs Nov 2, 2017 – 3:58 pm Historic covers and cultural coverage, spanning 50 years, separate the segments of the HBO documentary Rolling Stone: Stories From The Edge, presented in two parts next week on Nov. 6–7. The magazine’s co-founder and publisher Jann Wenner unites them, showing how his personal vision and voice uniquely shaped America’s storms of change since the late 60s and how the public came to perceive them. His early choices elevated Annie Leibovitz and Hunter S. Thompson to international attention, and he personally produced the 1969 self-titled album by Boz Scaggs. Wenner was just getting warmed up.At the movie’s New York City premier on Oct. 30, co-director Blair Foster told Billboard on the red carpet that “very early on they were covering the art scene in the Bay Area and politics. I didn’t think that came until a little bit later, but really you see it within the first year of the magazine.” At the time this connection between music and broader social change was radical.As the decades ticked by it has come to seem almost taken for granted, but it was Wenner and Rolling Stone’s imprint that turned the latest music into a lens through which readers could view everything — war and voices raised against it, civil rights and voices raised against equality, impatient youth fighting for alternative lifestyles. Musicians, actors and other influential artists reflected all of this in their work, and Rolling Stone had the credibility to cover all of it.More recently the magazine has been looking for a buyer, after an investigative piece took a wrong turn leading to sizable legal costs and damages. But Wenner’s visionary outlook still leads along with new generations of writers and editors, many given their breaks by Rolling Stone.Now that everything is or seems digital, print doesn’t mean what it used to. But thanks to HBO’s Rolling Stone: Stories From The Edge, next week we’ll have a good chance to see how for 50 years, one music magazine showed how contemporary music meant everything.Lionel Richie To Produce Curtis Mayfield DocumentaryRead morelast_img read more

If PM Modi wins election who will be finance minister

first_imgUnion Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley.Reuters file [Representational Image]Finance Minister Arun Jaitley looks set to retain his post if Prime Minister Narendra Modi wins a second term as expected when results come on Thursday, May 23.But if his health worsens, Railways and Coal Minister Piyush Goyal could take over.Whoever holds the job, Modi needs a finance minister who can reinvigorate the economy without hiking debt.Fueled in recent years by low oil prices, growth sputtered to a five-quarter low of 6.6% at the end of 2018 and economists fear that may worsen due to falling rural consumption demand and slowly-rising fuel prices.Below are details of both Jaitley and Goyal:ARUN JAITLEYThe current finance minister is a lawyer and the most important leader in Modi’s cabinet who often acts as a chief troubleshooter.In the past five years, Jaitley not only steered through parliament major economic legislation such as a nationwide goods and services tax – which had languished for nearly two decades – but also argued for the government’s bid to end the Muslim instant divorce practice known as “triple talaq”.Seen as having good ties with ruling and opposition lawmakers, the 66-year-old Jaitley is known for his eloquent speeches within and outside parliament.In a reflection of his importance, Modi gave him the responsibility of three ministries when he first took office.Jaitley is a diabetic and had to skip the interim budget in February when he was in hospital in the United States, getting cancer treatment. He had a kidney transplant in May last year.PIYUSH GOYALRailways and Coal Minister Piyush Goyal, 54, has been billed as a future finance minister and stepped into the role twice in the Modi government when Jaitley was out sick. He also served on the board of India’s largest commercial bank, the State Bank of India, and the Bank of Baroda. Indian Finance Minister Piyush Goyal (C) leaves the Finance ministry to table the budget in Parliament in New Delhi on February 1, 2019.PRAKASH SINGH/AFP/Getty Images [Representational Image]Goyal, a trained chartered accountant who presented the last interim budget, has suggested more tax cuts for the salaried class if the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) retains power.Madan Sabnavis, the chief economist at Care Ratings, said whoever becomes finance minister will not matter much because most big decisions come from prime minister’s office.”I think the markets will be looking at it more from the point of view of whether it’s an NDA government or whether it’s a non-NDA government,” Sabnavis said, referring to the BJP-led ruling National Democratic Alliance.”If it is an NDA government, I really think they will be fairly agnostic to whether it’s Jaitley or Piyush Goyal.”last_img read more
