EFFER launches three new heavy loader cranes

Comments Off on EFFER launches three new heavy loader cranes

Hiab, part of Cargotec, launches three new EFFER heavy loader cranes with lower fuel consumption and the new advanced operating system SPACEevo to improve productivity and safer operation.

The three new models, EFFER iQ.1200 HP, 110 tonne metre ™, EFFER iX.550 HP, 51 tm, and EFFER iX.355 HP, 32.1 tm, are available to order from EFFER dealers globally.

“We are proud to introduce three new EFFER loader cranes that widen the choice of lifting capacities available to our customers. The new operating system SPACEevo ensures that the cranes have “best in class” performance and safety features,” says Marcel Boxem, Director, Global Product Management, Loader Cranes Heavy & Super Heavy, Hiab.

He adds: “The new cranes also help our customers to lower their emissions by weight reduction and reducing the energy consumption. Overall lower vehicle weight leads to more net payload for the customer.”

The EFFER iQ.1200 HP model is a 110 tm range crane with a compact design similar to 90tm models. This allows for a good payload on such a long and strong crane and provides an optimised balance between outreach, versatility and transport capability.

The cranes are controlled by the new control system SPACEevo that enables them to be operated precisely even at high speeds. It also offers advanced safety and productivity features like VSL+ that can maximise the lifting capacity by calculating the stability according to the position of the stabiliser legs and the total weight of the truck.

SPACEevo is an open and modular platform that allows customers to add or enhance their cranes with more functions over time as they become available, keeping their equipment up to date and evolving according to business needs.

The standard XS Drive remote control can be substituted with the new optional CombiDrive 4 remote control, which enhances the crane operation with new safety features such as Confirm View to find the best field of view, three high definition and bright colour displays and a long-lasting battery with single-user operator personalisation settings.

The new models will also be offered in non-CE versions, equipped with the control system Space X4 and the optional CombiDrive 3 remote control.

EFFER iQ.1200 HP: 110 tm; SPACEevo control system; New, advanced V12-Power dodecagonal shaped boom and JIB profile for lightweight and compact frame size fitting within a section of two metres. This contributes to giving the 110tm range crane a compact design similar to 90tm models, leaving a high level of useful payload and allowing it to fit in 4 axle truck installations.

An all-purpose crane that delivers the performance of its category with the weight and frame size of the range below, increasing the available payload and making it possible to install on a smaller truck size.
Variable pump, for increased flow performances and reduced fuel consumption.

Nano-based technology coating assures long-lasting protection of the crane and its parts from corrosion, rust or external environmental factors that would affect its appearance and residual value over time.

Gebrüder Weiss and Hellmann celebrate anniversary

Comments Off on Gebrüder Weiss and Hellmann celebrate anniversary

Two logistics giants celebrate their brass anniversary.

It has now been 45 years since Gebrüder Weiss and Hellmann Worldwide Logistics embarked on their partnership together. Representatives of the two companies came together at the Gebrüder Weiss branch in Vienna, where they looked back on the past and everything that had been achieved:

“What unites us in our long-standing partnership with Hellmann is our commitment to high quality and the desire to create added value for the customer with our combination of expertise,” says Wolfram Senger-Weiss, CEO of Gebrüder Weiss.

“The fact that our partnership with Gebrüder Weiss has developed so successfully over 45 years is thanks in no small way to the employees of both companies, who have shaped this cooperation at various levels through the trust they have in each other’s work,” adds Reiner Heiken, CEO of Hellmann Worldwide Logistics.

Together, the two logistics service providers offer comprehensive land transports across Europe. While the cooperation involves Gebrüder Weiss covering Austria, Switzerland, Southern Germany and most of South-Eastern Europe with its own locations, Hellmann serves customers in Central and Northern Germany, Poland, Spain, the UK, Turkey, as well as the Baltic and other Eastern European states.

Back in 1977, when borders within Europe were still quite impermeable, the partners initially worked together on customs clearance matters at their branches. This marked the beginning of a collaboration that gradually developed into an even closer one over decades to come. In 2005, they founded System Alliance Europe (SAE), a cooperation of leading medium-sized freight forwarding companies. In 2008, the two companies extended their partnership to Germany as well as numerous Central and Eastern European countries. Ever since, customers have had access to daily transport connections between these regions. The foundations for a 50-year golden anniversary are stronger than ever.

Comments Off on Total Movements ships power plant equipment to India export port

Total Movements, member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) in India, moved five units of power plant equipment and accessories with the widest piece being 8 m wide and the heaviest weighing 110 tons from manufacturers site in India to the designated Indian export port.

The company states: “With the execution of the project being getting coincided with the fag end of the monsoon, detailed planning was carried out by our team. All the parameters on-road as well as on sea for cargo safety and stability were taken into consideration.”

The three ODCs by road were placed on suitable vehicles, lashed properly and moved out from the supplier’s plant to the load port. The remaining two critical-shaped equipment (Neck) required extreme supervision as they were to be loaded on the barge by a LOLO operation that required a very high-capacity crane. This operation was executed under close supervision of our expert personnel, considering tidal factors and cargo safety. The cargo was secured/lashed, moved by barge to the load port, brought alongside the vessel and loaded safely in a timely manner.

A suitable technical study was done to ensure that everything goes according to plan. With support from all the stakeholders involved, the cargoes were loaded in a safe and timely manner.

Comments Off on Longitude awarded contract to support the NEOM project

Longitude Engineering, ABL Group’s engineering, advisory, and design arm, has been awarded a contract to provide engineering support to Air Products on the NEOM green hydrogen project in Saudi Arabia.

The NEOM Green Hydrogen Company (NGHC) aims to build the world’s largest green hydrogen production facility from local onshore wind and solar power, which will then be exported globally by Air Products, one of the company’s three shareholders, as green ammonia. The green ammonia will be converted back into green hydrogen to fuel the transport sector. The company is located in the NEOM region of Saudi Arabia.

“This project is at the cutting edge of the energy transition. It will harness the carbon-free energy generated from abundant local wind and solar resources to generate hydrogen via electrolysis, which will then be transformed into ammonia for global distribution.”

Green hydrogen is recognised as key to global decarbonisation efforts. The NEOM Green Hydrogen Company is truly the first to move into making green hydrogen generation at big scale a reality, and we are delighted to play a small role in this pioneering undertaking.” David Bignold, Managing Director at Longitude Engineering.

HYPORT signs second agreement with OPAZ

Comments Off on HYPORT signs second agreement with OPAZ

The HYPORT Coordination Company, a joint venture between DEME Concessions and OQ Alternative Energy, has signed a second land reservation agreement for a green hydrogen and ammonia production plant with the Public Authority for Special Economic Zones and Free Zones (OPAZ) in Duqm, Oman.

On 15 June, the agreement was signed by Martin D’Uva, Managing Director of DEME Concessions and Deputy Chairman of the HYPORT Coordination Company, Najla bint Zuhair Al Jamali, CEO of OQ Alternative Energy, and Dr Ali bin Masoud Al Sunaidi, OPAZ Chairman.

HYPORT Duqm is a strategic project, located close to the Port of Duqm, that will develop a green hydrogen and green ammonia production facility with a 500MW electrolysis capacity on a site of 793,000 square metres. The hydrogen plant will be fed with renewable electricity produced by approximately 1.3GW of combined installed capacity from wind turbines and solar panels established in the Special Economic Zone at Duqm’s renewable energy area, where HYPORT Duqm has been allocated an area of 150 square kilometres.

The HYPORT Duqm project is founded on three main components: a solar and wind park with a total installed capacity of about 1.3GW, a dedicated, high-voltage green electricity transmission line, and a utility-scale electrolysis and ammonia conversion plant, where hydrogen will be produced from desalinated water and subsequently converted into green ammonia, which will be stored and shipped from the Port of Duqm to the target export markets.

In October 2021, HYPORT Duqm installed and commissioned four meteorological masts on its site and two solar stations measuring solar radiation levels as part of a one-year measurement campaign.

Commenting on the signing of the agreement, Martin D’Uva, Managing Director of DEME Concessions, said: “With this second land reservation signed, HYPORT Duqm is ready to go into the next phase and one step closer to becoming the first utility-size green ammonia plant in the SEZAD, the biggest special economic zone in the Middle East. Together with our partner OQ, and with the Public Authority for Special Economic Zones, we are proud to be contributing to one of the key vectors to facilitate the energy transition and to the ambitions of Oman to become a world player in green molecules. The green ammonia, produced by our flagship project HYPORT Duqm, will be shipped via the strategically located Port of Duqm to customers in Europe and other markets where green molecules will play a crucial role to support the key objectives ‘energy security’ and ‘mitigation of CO2 emissions’ from hard-to-abate sectors.”

Najla bint Zuhair Al Jamali, CEO of OQ Alternative Energy, stated: “The midstream land reservation will enable us to perform the necessary studies and design works in order to take the project from feasibility to detailed engineering. We would like to thank OPAZ for their continued support in ensuring the success of HYPORT Duqm.”

Engineer Yahya bin Khamis Al-Zadjali, in charge of managing the operations of the Special Economic Zone, said: “This agreement is a significant step forward in enabling the project to complete its necessary studies on the land such as soil and topographic studies in support of the project’s engineering phase. OPAZ looks forward to working with the project team to complete these studies and start the project as it is Duqm’s first green hydrogen and green ammonia project, which in return will allow OPAZ to attract other renewable energy-based projects such as green steel and green aluminium production facilities so as to keep pace with the growing global demand for renewable energy.”
