High five for WCA projects

first_imgMFC Transport, the WCA Projects member representing India, moved an over-dimensional nuclear power plant component a distance of 370 km from Ahmedabad to Adani Port.MFC had to design and fabricate a rotational holding device to transport the Calandria, which measured 10.45 m long, 9 m wide by 2.52 m high and weighed 73.1 tonnes. WCA Projects representative in China, Universal Logistics, completed the transportation of two 56.4 m x 5.1 m x 4 m cargoes weighing 53 tonnes each, from Jiangsu Province via Shanghai to India.An extra-long trailer with a wide turning radius was necessary for the move, as there was no allowance for the bending of the cargo during transit. Malaysia headquartered Mory TNTE handled a 60-tonne overheight press machine, which was exported from China to Malaysia’s Port Klang, before being delivered to the consignee. Mory was also responsible for positioning the press inside the manufacturing facility. The 4.85 m high unit had to pass a low bridge with just 5 cm of clearance, which required exact measurement and monitoring, plus a special police escort from the port to the site. Alliance 21 and Hevold Shipping, members of the WCA Projects network representing Singapore and Norway respectively, came together to consolidate rigging equipment from Norway and Poland for delivery to Shanghai.The main body frame tipped-the-scales at more than 50 tonnes, while accessories were consolidated in two containers. The team had just one week to mobilse and compete the task, stated WCA Projects. Network representative for Pakistan, Freight Connection Group, coordinated the transport of a 75-tonne transformer from Karachi airport to Bahawalpur Punjab.The transformer and auxiliary equipment arrived by air from China. Freight Connection’s scope of work involved unloading the transformer directly from plane onto a multi-axle trailer; Customs clearance; and transportation to the final jobsite. www.mfctransport.comwww.mory-tnte.comwww.fcg.com.pkwww.hevold.nowww.a21.com.sgwww.wcaprojects.comlast_img read more

Nearly 500,000 illegal immigrants live in South Florida

first_imgNearly 500,000 illegal immigrants reside in South Florida,  making it the fifth-largest  metropolitan area with an undocumented population in the United States, according to a new analysis by the Pew Research Center.About 450,000 illegal immigrants reside in the greater Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach area, Pew found, based on 2014 estimates from government data. About 55,000 live in the city of Miami alone.President Donald J. Trump has promised to crack down on illegal immigration, signing an executive order last month to cut federal funding for cities and counties considered “sanctuaries” for the undocumented. To avoid the label, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez hastily agreed to hold inmates in local jails for federal immigration agents.South Florida trails other major urban centers that attract scores more of undocumented immigrants. Leading the list are New York and Los Angeles, with 1.2 million and 1 million, respectively. In third and fourth place are Houston (575,000) and Dallas (475,000).last_img read more

Rescue Diver from China Recognised with IMO Bravery Accolade

first_img(Image Courtesy: IMO) A rescue diver from China who made a series of underwater dives to rescue three people from a sunken cargo ship, received the 2018 IMO Award for Exceptional Bravery at Sea during the this year’s IMO Awards ceremony (6 December).Zhong Haifeng, senior diver and deputy of the Engineering Team of Guangzhou Salvage was recognized for his tireless efforts under highly dangerous circumstances, repeatedly diving into the dark and submerged cargo hold of a ship to bring out survivors. He was nominated for the award by the Government of China.Mr. Zhong said it was an honour to be conferred the award, as a confirmation of China’s efforts in search and rescue and a huge encouragement to his team and to himself.“In China in our business we have a motto. Prompt a hope of living unto others. And save the risks of death to ourselves,” Mr. Zhong said (speaking through an interpreter). “It is this motto that spurs our divers. To dive again and again, over and over, into the waters, to save those in danger from the brink of death. Every time, I saw the people who are saved. We looked into their eyes. We saw despair change into hope. We witnessed them breaking into tears. It is in that moment that our heart was filled with all type of emotions.”“I love my job. I love diving, because, at the critical moment, we can save people’s lives. The pride is mine. The glory is mine. I think I will carry on. I would like to share my experience and my zest with more colleagues. Therefore our salvation teams can become stronger and stronger. Yes of course, I most sincerely wish more and more people could pay more attention to safety, protect themselves and protect their lives. Last but not least, I would like to sincerely express my appreciation to you,” he said.The incident occurred in November 2017. Following a collision with another ship, in Guangzhou Port, China, the bulk carrier M.V.Jin Ze Lun sank. Of the 14 crew on board, two were immediately rescued by local maritime authorities but 12 remained missing. The bulk carrier was lying on the seabed, in the main channel into the port, and a strong current made the underwater search and rescue operation extremely difficult.Mr. Zhong was put in charge of the desperate search for survivors. After 36 hours of repeated dives, six survivors were located, trapped in the cargo hold. Mr. Zhong instructed his team to replenish oxygen to the cabin and talk to the trapped survivors, to calm them.Mr. Zhong then dived down to the cargo hold alongside a teammate, bringing scuba diving equipment for those trapped underneath. In the afternoon of 28 November, Mr. Zhong dived down six times. He taught survivors how to put on and use scuba diving equipment and personally rescued three of them in the space of one hour, despite becoming extremely exhausted.Certificates of CommendationDuring the award ceremony, three certificates of commendation were also presented:The Master and crew of the bitumen tanker Seapower, the Master and crew of the petroleum/chemical tanker MTM Tortola and the pilot and crew of the HMS Monmouth’s Wildcat helicopter Black Jack (815 Naval Air Squadron, UK Royal Navy), jointly nominated by Malta, Singapore and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland for the exemplary international effort, courage and tenacity displayed in the coordinated operation to rescue 13 crew members of the sunken tanker MT RAMA 2, off Oman, in very adverse weather and sea conditions. Determined and tireless efforts by merchant vessels in the vicinity, coupled with the skills and persistence of a professional search and rescue winching team, enabled the successful rescue of the 13 crew members from rough seas and extreme peril.The certificates were received during the Awards ceremony by Captain Levan Mamaladze (Georgia) of the Seapower; Captain Anubhav Srivastava (India) of MTM Tortola; and Lieutenant Commander Ash Morgan (United Kingdom), Flight Commander of the Black Jack helicopter.***The crews of the rescue helicopters Helimer 202 and Helimer 207 of the Spanish Maritime Safety Agency, nominated by Spain for their courage and professionalism while risking their own lives to rescue 23 crew members from the general cargo ship Cheshire, which was laden with over 40,000 tonnes of fertilizer, on fire and adrift at sea. With dense toxic smoke filling the air, the helicopter crews navigated very hazardous flying conditions to make several successful attempts at rescuing all crew members, following which a huge explosion occurred on the vessel, highlighting the immense danger under which this rescue operation was carried out.The certificates were received by Pilot Alfonso Gómez de las Heras, Co-pilot Raúl Nevado, and Rescuer Gregorio Jimmy Rodríguez, from the Helimer 207; and Winch Operator Albert Lara of the Helimer 202.***Captain Gaetano Gigliotti, on behalf of the officers and crew of the passenger ship Carnival Elation, nominated by the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) for their courage, skill and determination demonstrated in the rescue of a survivor found in a life raft, whose fishing vessel, the Captain Eddie, had flooded and sunk in storm force winds and seas. Three days before the rescue, with Hurricane Irma gathering in strength nearby, Captain Gigliotti had navigated the Carnival Elation out of a Bahamas dry dock, with still incomplete repair work, in order to look for shelter ahead of the hurricane’s predicted passage. On 10 September 2017, following the flooding and sinking of the Captain Eddie, and amidst 15-20 feet seas and 40-60 knot winds, Captain Gigliotti carefully manoeuvred the 70,000 tonne, 260 metre long cruise ship towards the small life raft spotted on the horizon, in complete darkness. Captain Gigliotti reacted decisively to the unfolding situation by turning the ship to the wind – despite the risk of flooding and danger to the crew – and by adjusting the ballast to mitigate the heavy seas. The leadership and skill displayed by Captain Gigliotti in such conditions, combined with the courage and determination of the crew, ensured the survival of the fisherman and a successful rescue and displayed the very best of seafaring spirit.Captain Gigliotti was at the ceremony to receive the certificate. He was also reunited with Mr. Edward Potter, the rescued fisherman.Letters of CommendationLetters of commendation have been sent to:Mr. Xu Junlin, Mr. Xu Zhentao, Mr. Lu Ping and Mr. Feng Yajun, members of the Sanchi Explosion Emergency Dispatch Squad of the Shanghai Salvage Bureau.
