ASIA – RED SEA SERVICE, PERFECT SOLUTION FOR SIEMENS

August 2016 – modules for a state of the art heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) and destined for the Beni Suef power plant in Egypt, are loaded aboard the AAL Dalian in South Korea. Commissioned by global logistics provider the LPL Group, this is the first of a series of cargo shipments that AAL will undertake between Asia and the Red Sea for the Siemen’s Megaproject in Egypt – a project that includes the development of three 4.8 gigawatt turnkey combined power plants in Beni Suef, Burullus and New Capital.

Namir Khanbabi, explained, ‘This is an incredibly important project for Siemens and indeed Egypt – one that will boost power generation capacity for the country by 50 percent, to 16.4 gigawatts. Accordingly, we are providing Siemens with a comprehensive and dedicated solution that involves four of our owned 31,000dwt A-Class vessels being deployed between Asia and the Red Sea.’

‘The commitment of this best-in-class tonnage provides Siemens with the guaranteed capacity, bi-monthly schedule integrity and port call flexibility it needs to meet its logistics and time objectives. It also gives our other multipurpose and heavy lift customers around the world a regular and highly flexible semi-liner service: Asia – Red Sea – Asia.’

AAL NANJING TAKES CENTER STAGE IN SYDNEY!

AAL NANJING TAKES CENTER STAGE IN SYDNEY

Yesterday, the AAL Nanjing took center stage, on her way to delivering a shipment for the Barangaroo Ferry Hub Project (Sydney Harbour). Millions of Australians at home watched her Nanjing on Channel 9 and Channel 7 prime-time news delivering almost 600 tonnes of steel for the above project. The steel will be used to build a new and important ferry hub at Barangaroo South. Below is the AAL nanjing herself, proudly sailing towards the Sydney Opera House the Sydney Harbour Bridge with this impressive cargo. More photography and videography soon.

AAL IN ACTION!

Members of the AAL Operations Team taking a well-earned moment to reflect, having just coordinated the safe & successful loading and stowing of 4 giant ASC units onto the AAL Hong Kong, in some appalling Shanghai weather and visibility conditions.

THE TEAM THAT WORKS HARD, PLAYS HARD!

AAL Singapore turned out in full force, to celebrate a particularly busy time of new developments and exciting activity within AAL. The team were invited by the management to replace their work-wear with some casual gear and compete in an intra-office bowling competition on a Friday afternoon at the end of May. The event proved highly successful and provided a great opportunity for everyone to simply ‘let off steam’. With ice-cold beer flowing and everyone encouraged to mingle, the event proved less about bowling and more about getting together to socialise – and quite right too!

AAL LOADS 4 GIANT ASC UNITS ON A SINGLE SAILING – AN INDUSTRY FIRST!

This short video shows how AAL engineered part of a series of shipments of 20 Automated Stacking Cranes ‘ASC’ – 473 sqm each unit – on multiple sailings from Shanghai to Melbourne, for final delivery to Victoria International Container Terminal. The combination of our Tramp & Liner Divisions working together deliver a seamless and cost-efficient solution. The cargo is transported along AAL’s scheduled Asia – East Coast Australia liner service, which offers 13 regular port calls on a 17-day rotation. Our 31,000dwt A-Class vessel ‘AAL Hong Kong’ was chosen for the task, as it provided 1,800 sqm of clear deck space and enabled 4 of these giant ASC units to be loaded and transported on a single sailing – the first time this has ever been done.

4 In-house AAL engineers worked in tandem in Asia & Australia to plan and oversee every stage of operations. Loading and discharge of the ASC units required simultaneous operation of three on-board cranes. The professionalism and flexibility of AAL’s operational and engineering teams enabled changes up the last minute. Acting as both ship owner and operator, AAL quickly signed-off major ship modifications needed to accommodate this huge cargo. The third shipment (featured in the video) was successfully loaded in Shanghai, during extremely poor weather and visibility conditions.
