- Jun 25, 2018-

containers3-750x500.jpgAs World Maritime News reported earlier, the Liberian-flagged YM Efficiency lost over 80 containers after being battered by heavy weather some 30 kilometres off the coast of New South Wales on June 1, while the ship was underway from Taiwan to Sydney.

The operator of YM Efficiency, Yang Ming Marine Transport Corporation, informed earlier that the vessel’s crew was safe and that there had been no significant damage to the containership. YM Efficiency berthed alongside the DP World terminal in Sydney on June 6.

AMSA has now confirmed that the ship’s insurers have contracted Port of Newcastle to provide their hydrographic survey vessel to initially conduct a five-day search.

“The initial search will focus on the high priority areas around where the containers were lost, and where modelling indicates that most of them are likely to be located,” AMSA said.

“It will take approximately a fortnight to process and analyse the survey data and provide quality safety advice with associated maps and locations. “

AMSA further informed that the total number of containers lost has been revised down from 83 containers to 81, leaving 79 containers still unaccounted for.

“Mariners should remain on the lookout for navigational hazards in the area until all the containers have been located,” the authority cautioned.

Product Description

Advantages of this Telescopic Knuckle Boom Truck Mounted Crane:OUCO-30T-Telescopic-Knuckle-Boom-Truck-Mounted.jpg

Running smoothly.

Rates of speed can be changed. 

360 degrees rotary.

Both electro hydraulic and manual to control. 

Operate conveniently. 

Safety and reliability. 

Fold boom cranes have the ability to get into and service projects where regular mobile cranes don’t have the room necessary for a safe set up. This makes the folding boom crane ideal for several applications.

A Folding boom crane has two booms (main boom and an outer boom), which are attached by knuckle that allows the entire boom structure to move in and out, just in the same way our knuckles move the sections of our fingers. This movement allows a knuckle boom crane to fold into a very small size when transporting materials or squeezing into a small construction site. The mobility of a folding crane also allows an operator to clear the payload off their own deck. 

Typical Applications: Service cranes, Provision and cargo handling cranes, Fishing and fish farming cranes.
