THE LIGHTER SIDE more news at www.heavyliftpfi.com


With Evie Aufheben on her summer vacation, HLPFI turns to work experience student Sarah Schiffahrt to share a little gossip in this issue’s Lighter Side.


Party poopers


HLPFI loves a birthday and we were disappointed to miss the Scheuerle and Mammoet party held to mark the 30th anniversary of the first delivery of a Scheuerle self-propelled modular transporter to Mammoet back in 1983. We were also sad to miss Universal Africa Lines (UAL) celebrating its 30th anniversary in Rotterdam, when it also used the occasion to christen its new ship, UAL Texas (pictured).


Last Ship


We note that pop music star Sting has returned to his childhood roots, in the shadow of a struggling northern England shipyard, to make both a musical that will debut on Broadway next year and his first album of original material in 10 years. Both the musical and his album are called ‘The Last Ship’.


Nice one Norbert


Well done to Norbert Dentressangle for helping to celebrate the centenary of the discovery of stainless steel in


Schenker on line One wonders what England


footballer Frank Lampard would say about the news that German company GoalControl selected Schenker Deutschland AG to supply its goal line technology systems to this year’s FIFA Confederation Cup stadiums across Brazil. Pity the technology was not present in South Africa at the last World Cup, perhaps?


140 July/August 2013


Jan Klejn, chief executive at Mammoet, and Otto Rettenmaier, owner of the TII Group, cut a cake to celebrate the 30th birthday of the SPMT.


Sheffield by transporting two 3 m horse head sculptures from Scotland to a series of events on behalf of Outkumpu Stainless.


Farewell Clipper


We were very sad to see the Clipper Projects brand disappearing beneath the waves following the merger with Thorco Shipping. We hope that the newly merged company will follow in the footsteps of Clipper Projects by using HLPFI to promote its services to the magazine’s readers across the world. Go


on Thorco Shipping, you know it makes sense!


ACG backs GPLN


HLPFI notes that AirCargoGroup (ACG) has become a vendor sponsor of the Global Project Logistics Network (GPLN), which is a feather in the latter’s cap.


750 up


Congratulations to Netherlands based Spierings, which used the Vertikal Days lifting and access exhibition to deliver its 750th


crane – a five-axle SK 599-AT5 – to crane hire firm Bronzeshield. And similar congratulations go to Denmark headquartered offshore installation specialist A2SEA, which recently installed its 1,000 wind turbine since its formation almost 12 years ago.


Say nothing


As far as the HLPFI editorial team is concerned, sometimes saying nothing rather than saying something that makes the client look a little ridiculous, is the secret of good PR. Which is why HLPFI did not use a recent press release from a well-known forwarder which boasted about finishing 320th in a corporate yachting event. Yes, that is 320th!


De Lloyd no more


And finally, we hear that the long-established De Lloyd newspaper and sister magazine Transport Echo have closed, leaving HLPFI to ponder whether there is room in the market for a nimble, fast-moving, boutique publishing company to step in to fill the information gap in Antwerp? Watch this space.
