Current Articles:   (6/19/12) <span-size:19.0pt;font-family:"Georgia","serif"">Giant cranes cruise in <span-family:"Georgia","serif"">New equipment will help speed up operations at Army's munitions terminal

<span-size:4.0pt;font-family:"Georgia","serif"">By Julian March
Julian.March@StarNewsOnline.com

<span-size:4.0pt;font-family:"Georgia","serif"">Published: Tuesday, June 19, 2012 at 11:04 a.m.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Georgia","serif"">The leviathan shoved off from the east and lurched across the ocean. It rose more than 200 feet into the sky and dominated the horizon as it approached the mouth of the Cape Fear River.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Georgia","serif"">At ease – if it was Godzilla you would have heard by now.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Georgia","serif"">The massive shipment that passed by Southport Tuesday morning was a barge laden with two cranes that collectively weigh more than 7 million pounds and, at full height, are twice as tall as the Oak Island Lighthouse.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Georgia","serif"">The two cranes, which have been floating toward Brunswick County since they left South Korea on April 9, will be installed at the Army's Sunny Point Military Ocean Terminal.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Georgia","serif"">The brand-new cranes are part of a $27.5 million contract that will help Sunny Point get bombs and bullets loaded on ships faster.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Georgia","serif"">MOTSU already completed a project to modernize the wharf, which was designed to make loading and unloading ammo more efficient, secure and safer. The terminal handles 90 percent of the ammunition that supplies deployed troops.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Georgia","serif"">The installation of the two cranes will complete the modernization of the terminal's center wharf, said Don Parker, the deputy to the MOTSU commander.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Georgia","serif"">MOTSU has two 38-year-old cranes on the south wharf. Those aging cranes are first-generation ship-to-shore cranes, Parker said. They still work, but they are getting harder to maintain.

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Georgia","serif"">The new cranes will get ships loaded faster, Parker said, which will be safer for personnel. But that won't mean the terminal needs fewer people. Parker said he sees the cranes as being "worker neutral."

<span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Georgia","serif"">Parker said MOTSU's new cranes are similar to cranes delivered to the Port of Wilmington in 2007. But the terminal's cranes will have a smaller footprint than the port's crane because of the width of the wharf, he said.

CURRENT ISSUES/EVENTS: NONE

 

FUTURE ISSUES/EVENTS:  None

 

===============================================

 

SECURITY LEVEL: MARSEC 1

 

CURRENT HURRICANE STATUS -  4 - NO STORMS EXPECTED - 800 AM EDT TUE JUN 19 2012

 

FOR THE NORTH ATLANTIC...CARIBBEAN SEA AND THE GULF OF MEXICO...

 

1. A NON-TROPICAL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM LOCATED ABOUT 440 MILES SOUTHEAST

OF HALIFAX NOVA SCOT IA IS PRODUCING A LIMITED AREA OF SHOWERS AND

THUNDERSTORMS.  THERE IS STILL A POTENTIAL FOR THIS SYSTEM TO

DEVELOP INTO A TROPICAL CYCLONE BEFORE IT ENCOUNTERS COOLER WATERS

AND A MORE STABLE ATMOSPHERE IN A DAY OR SO.  THIS SYSTEM HAS A

MEDIUM CHANCE...50 PERCENT...OF BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING

THE NEXT 48 HOURS AS IT MOVES EAST-NORTHEASTWARD AT 10 TO 15 MPH.

FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS SYSTEM...PLEASE SEE HIGH SEAS

FORECASTS ISSUED BY THE OCEAN PREDICTION CENTER.

 

2. A LARGE AREA OF CLOUDINESS...SHOWERS...AND A FEW THUNDERSTORMS

OVER THE NORTHWESTERN CARIBBEAN SEA STRETCHING INTO THE

SOUTHWESTERN ATLANTIC OCEAN IS ASSOCIATED WITH A SURFACE TROUGH.

ALTHOUGH UPPER-LEVEL CONDITIONS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO BE PARTICULARLY

CONDUCIVE FOR DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SYSTEM...AREAS OF HEAVY RAINFALL

ARE LIKELY DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS OVER THE CAYMAN

ISLANDS...CUBA...THE BAHAMAS...AND SOUTH FLORIDA.  THIS SYSTEM HAS

A LOW CHANCE...10 PERCENT...OF BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE OVER THE

NEXT 48 HOURS AS IT MOVES NORTHWESTWARD AT 5 TO 10 MPH. 

 

ELSEWHERE...TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION IS NOT EXPECTED DURING THE

NEXT 48 HOURS.
