Peking to cross the atlantic

first_imgAs reported in the March/April Ships and Shipping Lines supplement, page 26, the steel-hulled, four-masted barque will be transported back to Germany from New York City, USA, where it has been for more than four decades. The ship will travel onboard Combi Lift’s semi-submersible vessel Combi Dock III, to Hamburg where it will be the centrepiece of a EUR120 million museum complex in the harbour. The windjammer has a length of 115.5 m, a beam of 14.3 m and 4.2 m draft with a gross weight of 3,700 tonnes. “It is not particularly heavy, relative to say, a military vessel,” explains Alexandre Poirier, naval architect and project engineer for Peking at Stiftung Hamburg Maritim. “But it is long and fragile. It has 3 to 4 mm of hull plating left at the waterline, out of an original thickness of 15 mm or more.” Combi Dock III will make use of its flo-flo ability to transport the vessel: “The ballast tanks will be flooded to lower the cargo deck below the water’s surface, allowing the Peking to be moved into position for loading. It will be loaded stern first,” says Peer Kelch, chartering manager at Combi Lift. “The tanks are then pumped out, and the deck rises to shoulder the load. The various tanks can be pumped separately to balance the cargo. After seafastening with more than 70 bottom and side support structures, the Peking will be carried piggyback across the Atlantic Ocean.” According to Combi Lift, loading and seafastening in New York is estimated to take three to four days, and the crossing will take about twelve days. The restoration work of the ship will be carried out at the Peters Werft shipyard in Wewelsfleth, Germany. The Peking was built by Blohm + Voss in 1911 and sailed as one of the legendary “Flying P-Liners” of the German shipping company F. Laeisz. www.combi-lift.netlast_img read more

DSWMC wants change of attitude to waste management

first_img Tweet Share Sharing is caring! Share Sharecenter_img LocalNews DSWMC wants change of attitude to waste management by: – September 25, 2014 181 Views   no discussions Acting general manager of the Dominica Solid Waste Management Corporation, Florian Mitchell (file photo)The Dominica Solid Waste Management Corporation is calling on citizens to view waste management as a resource.This as the Corporation observes Solid Waste Week under the theme ‘Too Good to Waste, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’.Acting general manager of the Corporation, Florian Mitchell told the opening of an exhibition on Wednesday, September 24, 2014 at the Windsor Park Stadium in Roseau, the intention of the theme is to change citizen’s mindset towards waste.“We want to point out that waste is a resource, no longer are the days where we used something and we just disposed of it, waste is a resource”.Mr Mitchell also noted that citizens can generate income from waste material since “a greater composition of our waste material from our home can be recycled”.“If you watch your waste composition, you could earn revenue from your waste. When you have your used lead acid batteries, you bring it to Solid Waste there is a fee that Solid Waste pays to you”.Additionally, Mr Mitchell said there are many careers available in waste management and called on citizens to consider them.“We want to emphasize, that your waste is a resource and for the school children, let’s look at waste management as an avenue where we can create our own business”. “There are a lot of ways and things that we can do to become self-employed where waste management is concerned,” Mr Mitchell said. He added that in a growing economy and changing world, citizens should not only be looking to work within the government or within the private sector. “I believe in going forward, as students we need to look at avenues because waste management is something that is always going to be there as long as we are on the face of the earth”.“While we are here, waste is a product that will be of unlimited benefit and potential so we could tap in and harness it,” Mr Mitchell said.

‘Safe and Well’: Three On Board Missing Plane Rescued

first_imgSgt. Eagerton: “[Sunday] afternoon, the RCC started receiving reports that a plane was overdue that had taken off from Lake Hood and was bound for Kenai. Within the same hour, they started receiving airborne ELT reports. So [Sunday] afternoon, the 176th Wing responded by sending two HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopters from the 210th Rescue Squadron, as well as a Guardian angel team from the 212th Rescue Squadron on board. They searched through the night and didn’t find it, returned to base and refueled, reset, and are continuing to search today. As well, there are Civil Air Patrol aircraft involved in the search/rescue.” The Cessna left Lake Hood in Anchorage at 2:15pm Sunday and was destined for the Kenai Peninsula. The plane was reported overdue by family and friends that evening, and Sgt. Edward Eagerton with the RCC says within the same hour, pilots in the area began reporting they were receiving airborne reports of an emergency locator transmitter (ELT). The Alaska District Church of the Nazarene was the first to report that Josh Smith, his daughter Danielle, and John White were found on Monday evening. One factor complicating the search was that the Cessna was carrying an older ELT, which didn’t have satellite or GPS technology. The RCC and Civil Air Patrol searched between Lake Hood and the peninsula, with unconfirmed reports that the plane was found Monday evening on a lake on the western side of the Cook Inlet. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The three Kenai Peninsula residents on board a Cessna 180 which was reported overdue Sunday have now been reconnected with their families.
