The Port of Virginia
By Ken Weidner, Weidner Communications
n May 14, 1607 three ships that sailed from England landed a party of settlers at Jamestown, Virginia which began a process that, 400 years later, has resulted in the Port of Virginia becoming one of the largest
of even one modern container. Now, ships sail across that same distance in a matter of days, carry thousands of containers and represent an expansion of commerce that would have been beyond comprehension 400 years ago.The early days of the settle-
infrastructure over the next decade, in order to be able to handle projected growth. GE has addressed the planned growth and the concomitant security and environmental compatibility aspects, and can help ports overcome difficulties faced in these fields. GEs broad range of services includes project finance for terminals, equipment (trucks and trailers) and ships, amongst many others.The corporation develops up-to-date security technology, including monitoring systems which can be deployed in airports, customs buildings, ports and border crossings. Another one
of GEs products, this one focusing on environmental awareness, enables the treatment of up to 90% of waste water. These are but a few of the products in the corporations broad spectrum.
Five Questions for Hans Smits
What does Rotterdam, the third-largest port in the world and the largest European port by far, have to do to become a role model for European ports? A lot. But the biggest challenge is to optimize the logistics processes for containers being transported from the berth to the hinterland, which applies to all European ports. In Rotterdam we have to be innovative and exemplary a role we have already been able to fill on occasion, such as with the Betuweline, and various barge services.
Three cheers for the ports
The representative from Brussels sang the praises of the shipping industry in general and of ports in particular. Joe Borg, the EUs commissioner for fisheries and maritime affairs, emphasized that the shipping industry represents the lifeblood of the world economy. Growth in this industry ensures the creation of more and better jobs elsewhere. Ports, in turn, play a central role as multifunctional hubs. In order to fashion a better life for all, however, it is essential to do even more than is being done today. The EU wants to tackle these issues, together with countries outside the EU too, in the light of the state of the environment and looming climate change.These issues require the attention and solidarity of all European countries. Rotterdam can become a model port. It can become clean and green, according to Chris Buijink, secretary general of the Dutch trade and industry ministry.The port fully lives up to its role as an economic powerhouse, thanks to the cooperation of all the parties involved, including the authorities, terminal operators, shipping lines, logistics service providers and the different modes of transport connecting the port to the hinterland. In Rotterdam we see new products, services and markets, a visibly satisfied Buijink said. Hans Smits is satisfied too. He can look back on a successful business year 2006. 9.7 million teu were lifted in the port of Rotterdam last year, ten times as much as in 1975. Volumes are growing, and the size of vessels is on the rise too. The Emma Maersk, which is 400 m long and sports a
What is the current situation concerning the Maasvlakte 2? A series of contracts with future operators has already been signed (see box on page 12). Operations will start in 2013, which means that implementation will have taken 20 years, since we started planning in 1993. In actual fact this is five years too long. That is the negative aspect. The positive side of the story is that we have learnt from our experience. We are installing the latest technology and will have highly environment-friendly and efficient operations. Financing the project has not presented us with any problems. The growth to help us utilise the new capacity is taking place, and a good business plan has been written. The port authority of Rotterdam is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. What has changed over the years? The authority was part of the municipal administration until January 1, 2004. It was then transformed into a separate limited liability company on this date, and now operates in accordance with commercial criteria. One of the reasons for this was that investments grew massively and the company rapidly became more dynamic. Thus we needed a separate organization, that is to say a professional supervisory and management board. You have been CEO since January 1, 2005. What have you achieved in this time? Me? Nothing alone. But together we make every effort to manage growing volumes, whilst simultaneously reducing bottlenecks in the port, in order for the environment to be less strained and to enable private companies operating in the port to flourish. What is your next goal? That the EUR 3 billion Maasvlakte 2 project is completed on time and within its budget. You have been CEO since 1 January 2005. What have you achieved in this time? Me?

capacity of 13,000 teu, called at Rotterdam for the first time last year. The vessel is 50 times larger than the first containership ever to call at Rotterdam, which was as long ago as 1966, he recounted. But the container sector is not the only cargo handling segment. In actual fact, only 25% of goods handled in Rotterdam are stowed in containers, Smits explained.50% of overall volumes is accounted for by oil, and 25% by the bulk freight sector. the ports capacity by more than 23 million teu by 2025, Smits told the meeting (see story at left). The port authority of Rotterdam has worked very hard since it was founded 75 years ago. It has been active as the supervisor, as an initiator, and above all as an investor. It took a lot of courage to bestride new paths, and a lot of capital too, which was invested in larger and more up-todate terminals, a high-tech ship traffic management system, experienced staff and good hinterland connections.This strategy was not only pursued in the past, but still continues today, and will remain the preferred course in future too. Collaboration with the authorities concerned is a very important aspect, as are the substantial amounts of money the port of Rotterdam has invested in research
Concessions for the first container terminals
The port of Rotterdam (Netherbid for the terminal.The financial sitlands) recently granted a 25-year conuation, as well as strategy, marketing, cession to operate the first container technology and sustainable plans for terminal at the Maasvlakte 2. Rights to this facility, named Rotterdam World Gateway, will be taken over by a multinational consortium comprising Neptune Orient Lines (NOL) in Singapore, Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM) Korea, Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) Japan, DP World (Dubai, UAE) and CMA CGM in France. According to a statement from the port of Rotterdam, fourteen shipping companies and stevedore firms originally The Maasvlakte 2 project will be built on this site.
APM was the first client
By 2010, the Danish shipping company Maersk Line will have fully exploited the capacity at the Maasvlakte 1 terminal (2.5 million teu), operated by the lines sister firm APM Terminals. Maersk is therefore obliged to search for new solutions until the Maasvlakte2 project creates more capacities (in 2013 at the earliest). APM will operate terminal 2 on the Maasvlakte 2 from this date. The new facility will be linked internally to the existing APM terminal on the Maas delta peninsula, as well as to the Betuwe railway line. Terminal 2 will be equipped to handle 4.5 million teu per year. A guaranteed handling volume was part of the agreement, declared Hans Smits, CEO of the Rotterdam port authority. Initially, the new terminal will have an area of 60 ha, which can be extended to 167 ha, depending on throughput development. If no additional capacities are created in Rotterdam in the interim period, freight for the port may occasionally be diverted to other APM terminals from 20102013. These could be in Antwerp and Zeebrugge (both Belgium), Bremerhaven (Germany) or Le Havre (France), an APM Terminals spokesperson said. www.apmterminals.com. n

operating the terminal were important criteria when it came to selecting candidates. The new partners said that when operations start, the platform, located on a 156 ha (1.56 million sqm) site and designed for an annual capacity of approximately 4 million teu, will be the most efficient and environment-friendly terminal in the world. The berth for ocean-going ships will be 1,900 m long, the one for inland barges 550 m. The facility will be equipped with state-of-the-art handling gear and will have access to the Betuwe railway line, as well as to the Dutch road network. Construction work will commence in 2008 and operations in 2013. In connection with winning the new concession, Ron Widdows, chief executive of NOLs container shipping line APL, commented, the port of Rotterdam is our key hub in Europe, so the new terminal will help us deliver better services for the entire supply chain. Mohammed Sharaf, CEO of DP World, is also delighted with the port of Rotterdams decision. Congestion is a very real issue in Europe and Rotterdam World Gateway will be an important facility to help relieve the pressure for importers and exporters alike, a convinced Sharaf stated. Masakazu Yakushiji, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines executive vice-president, described the new terminal as the key to his companys future expansion in Europe, and Noh Jeong-Ik, CEO of HMM Hyundai Merchant Marine, added, Rotterdam will be a very important main hub for the TNWA lines (The New World Alliance, Hyundai, APL, MOL), CMA CGM and DP World. CMA CGM, the French partner of the joint venture, which has a stake in the new container terminal through its subsidiary, the port operator port Terminal Link, was glad to be partaking in the project. It is another step towards gaining a foothold in the ports and terminals industry, said Henri Archambeaud, Terminal Links manager for ports and systems engineering. The terminal is ideal for the next generation of mega ships that we and our partners have on order. n

The facility is equipped with crane rails and encompasses an area of around 5,000 sqm (190m long and 26 m wide). The construction of berth 10 began in November 2006 and cost EUR 2.5 million. A new road was constructed to connect the cross quay with the main road artery of the seaport, Ost-West-Strae. The loading of large pipes up to 100 m long and 7 m in diameter is among the intended uses of berth 10. EEW Special Pipe Constructions GmbH, a subsidiary of Erndtebrcker Eisenwerke of North Rhine-Westphalia, has begun construction of a facility for the production of large pipes on a 50,000 sqm site south of berth 10. The official celebration and the laying of the foundation stone at the facility took place on 29 June. EEW said that the plant is to go on stream in spring 2008. n
Tension Between Russia and Estonia
Russia plans to export all strategic freight, such as mineral oil products and other sources of energy, only via its own ports in the future. This was recently announced by Russian transport minister Igor Levitin during a Latvian-Russian government commission meeting in Riga (Latvia). Approximately 30% of Russian imports and exports (200-250 million tons) are currently shipped through the ports of Ukraine and Baltic Sea countries. Levitin also commented on press reports that the Russian group Severstaltrans wanted to sell its mineral oil terminal in the port of Muuga (Estonia). Levitin said that this was an example of how the Russian business sector responds to announcements by the Kremlin. He explained that raising capacities in the new ports near St. Petersburg (Russia) has made it uneconomical to handle masut (a mineral oil product) in the port of Tallinn (Estonia). As a result, the company is scaling back there, as an example of the changing transport situation. The volume of Russian transit traffic carried by the Estonian state-run railway Eesti Raudtee fell by 30% in May and June due to political tensions between Estonia and Russia. The transit business association predicts that the volume of Russian transit goods will sink by 15 to 20 million tons annually to 25 to 30 million tons. n
Constanta Defends Its Lead on the Black Sea
Container terminal in the port of Constanta (Romania). Over 1 million teu were handled there in 2006. The port of Constanta (Romania) successfully defended its leading position in the Black Sea and Caspian Sea region in 2006, outperforming the ports of Odessa and Ilyichevsk (both Ukraine) and Novorossisk (Russia). Constanta surpassed the 1 million teu mark for the first time, according to the port management. It is served Container terminal in the port of Constanta increasingly by large shipping (Romania).

The four largest ports in the Black Seasaw a combined throughput of 900,000 teu during the first half of 2006, an increase of 38% compared with the first six months of the previous year. The port of Constanta accounted for some 464,788 teu of this, Odessa 175,313 teu, Ilyichesvk 148,544 teu, and Novorossisk the rest. Constanta reported throughput of 1,037,077 teu for the full 2006 business year. n www.portofconstantza.com

Legislative Outlook 110th Congress, Second Session
By Yvette Wissmann, Darrell Conner, and Rolf Marshall
n Au g u s t 3 , , President Bush signed the 9/11 Commission Implementation bill (P.L. 110-53), which includes a provision mandating that 100 percent of containers entering the U.S. be screened prior to entering U.S. ports. The new mandate is to be implemented within five years (by 2012); however, the law does include language that would give the Department of Homeland Security the authority to extend the deadline in two-year increments.After the bill was signed into law, the business community, foreign governments and trade associations expressed their concerns with the mandate, including costs associated with screening, the availability of reliable screening technology, and its impact on trade. It is too early to determine the impacts of this mandate, but there will likely be continued debate surrounding cargo screening leading up to the 2012 deadline. One of the most pressing maritime-related items facing this Congress is ballast water legislation. Nine bills addressing the ballast water issue have been introduced in the 110th Congress. However, it is likely that only two of these bills will see any floor action this year. Title V of the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2007 (H.R. 2830), introduced by Rep. Oberstar (D-MN), contains ballast water standards based on the International Maritime Organizations (IMO) ballast water Convention. Compared to the Conventions standards, the bills treatment standards are more stringent. The legislation aims to achieve the following

Southeast Region Annual Conference April 2007
The Southeast Region held its Annual Conference in April in Charleston, South Carolina, with ten of the fourteen Southeast Region ports attending. The Southeast Region was honored to have International Propeller Club First Vice President Rolf Marshall in attendance. The Host Port of Charleston,South Carolina, presented a seminar entitled The Future of Southeast Ports. Luncheon presentations included the current status and future of Ocean Shipping and Marine Operations, as well as presentations on Project Seahawk and Multi-Jurisdictional Port Security. The program included a tour of the Port of Charleston, with an opportunity for an up-close view of container operations in the Port. The keynote speaker at lunch on April 19 was former United States Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta, who described his activities as Secretary of Transportation on September 11, 2001, including the decision to ground all private and commercial aircraft. The Propeller Club, Port of Port Canaveral, presented a Resolution on Maritime Education which the Southeast Region, after discussion and minor revision, adopted. The Resolution reads: WHEREAS, the Propeller Clubs in the Southeast Region support the creation of increased educational opportunities for Maritime Training at educational institutions and marine businesses in the Southeastern region of the United States; Inasmuch as the Southeastern United States, with over a dozen deep water ports, supports a healthy cargo and cruise industry and related job opportunities; Inasmuch as cargo and cruise water transit between the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, Mexican ports and Southeastern United States ports is rapidly growing; Inasmuch as a strong merchant marine labor force is vital to the interests of the United States; Inasmuch as elevated security requirements as related to domestic port and shipping interest has increased the need for trained maritime employees with United States passports; Inasmuch as there are insufficient educational institutions offering a maritime training curriculum resulting in the award of certificates in maritime trades or maritime associate, undergraduate or

Constitution and By-laws Committee Hard at Work
In 2005, International President Robert Fry of Houston, Texas, appointed a committee to review the Constitution and By-laws of The International Propeller Club of the United States. The charge given to the Committee was to update and simplify the Constitution and By-Laws to reflect current club practices, to reduce redundancies and inaccuracies, and to consider the relationship of United States and International Clubs with an eye to more effectively incorporating the International Clubs into the fold. The standard that the Committee used in performing its assignment was the best interest of the International Club. The Committee solicited input from local, national, and international fronts, including submitting a questionnaire to all local clubs, soliciting the input of the Executive Committee and the Clubs International officers. At the 2006 International Convention in Norfolk, Virginia, United States, the Committee conducted an open workshop and invited everyone to attend and to discuss proposed revisions to the Constitution and By-laws. After much discussion, the Committee concluded that the International Club would function better if it were structured more in line with the standard corporate structure, with the Board of Governors functioning as stockholders and the Executive Committee functioning like a corporate board of directors. The Constitution would be converted to Articles of Incorporation or Organization and the By-laws would contain the principal provisions governing the Club. A Table of Contents would be added to the By-laws to make them more user-friendly. At the June 2007 Executive Committee meeting, the Committee presented its first draft of the By-laws, BY-LAWS, continued on page 22
