Progetto AMEM-Ferriera di Servola
Incontro con Johannes Kühmayer, AMEM
16 febbraio 2015


 

TRIEST NGO ha invitato a Trieste l’ing. John Kuehmayer, titolare della AMEM, azienda viennese di progettazioni tecnologica nel campo dei trasporti e della logistica, che ha esposto il suo progetto di piattaforme galleggianti da installare nella zona della Ferriera di Servola.

Il progetto prevede la costruzione di una piattaforma logistica proprio nel sito antistante la Ferriera che come ben sappiamo presenta una gravissima situazione di inquinamento. La piattaforma permette di ospitare circa 1.000.000 di TEU e di essere collegata, mediante linee ferroviarie, al futuro mega-hub di Vienna/Bratislava.

La proposta della AMEM è stata inviata anche all’autorità portuale, al comune, alla provincia, alla regione e agli uffici tecnici della Fincantieri, senza ottenere a oggi alcuna risposta in merito, né è stato instaurato alcun dibattito pubblico. Noi riteniamo invece che tale progetto vada invece analizzato, in quanto rappresenta una valida alternativa per la riconversione della Ferriera, in grado di garantire sia i posti di lavoro che la bonifica dell’area inquinata.

 

Progetto AMEM Ferriera di Servola

 

Ecco una dichiarazione di Kühmayer rilasciata il 15 febbraio 2015 a Trieste:

“Il mio nome è Johannes Kühmayer, della Austrian Marine Equipment Manufacturers (AMEM). Sono venuto qua nel 2012 per vedere come funziona il porto di Trieste e per vedere se era applicabile in questo porto la nostra idea di piattaforma galleggiante per i container. Per vedere se si poteva utilizzare a Servola il nostro progetto e l’idea era di costruire gli impianti presso la Fincantieri.

Trieste ha bisogno di avere un impianto che venga predisposto molto rapidamente perché non c’è molto tempo. L’idea è di avere un sistema galleggiante di piattaforma container con collegamento a terra. I moduli potrebbero venir costruiti facilmente a Monfalcone e poi trainati via mare fino a Servola. Il nostro impianto non interferirebbe in alcun modo con i progetti di Arvedi sulla sistemazione della Ferriera.

Trieste dovrebbe essere il punto terminale di un collegamento che partendo da Vladivostok e attraversando la zona di Vienna arriva in Adriatico. Praticamente nella zona di Vienna verrebbe fatto il passaggio dallo scartamento ferroviario largo-russo a quello europeo classico.

Il collegamento con Trieste dovrebbe essere basato sulle due nuove linee in costruzione del Semmering e del Coralm Alp. Trieste potrebbe diventare un centro di smistamento simile a quello di Rotterdam con un collegamento diretto tra Trieste e il Centro Europa.“

Servola Infrastructure Expansion Project

Subject and starting point of the AMEM Austrian Marine Equipment Manufacturers proposal for the conversion of the former Ferriera Lucchini area forming part of Trieste’s New Harbour into an intermodal container hub of intercontinental dimension, was the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Russian (RŽD) and Austrian (ÖBB) Railways, together with partners in the Ukraine and Slovakia. The contract stipulates the extension of the broad gauge railway track (Transsib) from Košice in Slovakia to the Vienna-Bratislava region.

Vienna the Mega-Hub in Central Europe

This ambitious project of historical dimensions will transform Vienna into the most important European inland container hub at the crossroads from the North (Baltic Sea) to the South (Adriatic Sea) and from the Far East (Pacific Ocean) to Western Europe. Under the aegis of ÖBB INFRA, two mega tunnel projects (Semmering base and Koralm) are already under construction. They will eliminate the bottlenecks of the Baltic – Adriatic axis in Austria and open a “Hinterland” of enormous magnitude and economic significance to the Port of Trieste!

Trieste the Mega-Hub in the South of Central Europe

Driven by the dramatic situation in worldwide shipbuilding, and taking into account that Trieste will have to make up time, the AMEM study proposes a very large floating structure for the Trieste deepwater container terminal.

Very Large Floating Structures VLFSs are extremely environmental friendly, can be economically priced, will be earthquake resistant, and offer a serious alternative to conventional quays especially if sea levels are expected to rise. The “caissons” could be easily manufactured and towed from – for example – Monfalcone to Servola. Not a single truck loaded with sand and rocks – filling material for the conventional quays – will be driving along the “sopraelevata” , no pollution of the sea at all, full protection of the aquaculture farms in the Gulf of Trieste!

From the Pacific to the Adriatic Sea by rail and sea! Not a conventional solution! For sure! And it is containers primarily – no RoLa, no Motorways of the Seas, no TEN-T. Not at all an EU project! And - it will be mostly Italy’s respectively FVG’s and Trieste’s sovereignty and responsibility to build this unique port!

Interior Architects and Designers in the Cruise Ship and Mega Yacht Industry

Contents

Two days ahead of the Cruise Shipping Miami 2013, the 2nd completely revised and massively extended edition of AMEM’s "Interior Architects and Designers” had been finished. This publication is more than a directory! It is a bubbling source of information second to none!

The era of entertainment architecture, in other words the Las Vegas style is disappearing and trends are going much more in the direction of “chic” - an elegant, yacht-like appearance of cruise ships. Ironically enough it took the industry two decades to reinvent the “sun”. Outdoor architecture dominates indoor design! Old relationships between cruise line operators and designers / traditional architects are breaking apart, new designers go on stage! It has become an illogical industry. The more the industry opens up to lower income classes the more elegant is the appearance and the interior design of the new generation of cruise ships. The more ships are withdrawn from the balmy waters of the Caribbean and deployed in Europe all year round, the more frequent ships are crossing the cruel North Atlantic, the more outdoor space on board cruise ships is devoted to sun worshippers!

This trend is even reflected by the cruise lines’ name giving – Carnival Sunshine (ex Destiny) and RCCL’s Project Sunshine.

Cruise Ship Owners/Operators and Passenger Ship Financing & Management Companies

... MORE than a directory!

Completely revised and enlarged edition!

Contents

“Cruise Ship Owners/Operators and Passenger Ship Financing & Management Companies” in fact is more than a directory! It is not only the most comprehensively and accurately structured listing of cruise ship owners and operators in the industry, but also a publication that unveils the shift in the ship financing sector and uncovers how fast the traditional financiers to the cruise shipping industry fade away and - seen from a conservative point of view - perverted forms of financing are gaining ground.

In todays oligopolistic mature cruise industry, in other words a situation where a handful of large firms account for a relatively large market share, the only way for a new cruise venture to succeed is to have very deep pockets – like MSC – or to meet a niche market demand – like Star Clipper, Seadream or Silversea Cruises. Gone are the growth years of the seventies, eighties and early nineties where the probabilities and rates of returns were a lot higher for start-ups.

The cruise industry is the most outsourced, non-US industry in America and the Western world! An outsourced industry is outsourcing its management obligations to cruise ship management companies! Everything what is left is cash management!

Wishful thinking is governing green shipping strategies and decisions both in the European Union and in the IMO International Maritime Organization! Misguided by a legion of consultants, the emission debate focuses on the “input” of propulsion systems – the most common among them being internal combustion engines – instead of the “output” – the stuff that comes out of a ship’s stake!

When discussing marine fuels one should always bear in mind that internal combustion engines in general and marine diesel engines in particular never will become air purification plants!

Owners and charterers will be dealing with a vast array of different preferably biodegradable fuels and lubricants in the future, all requiring additional space and storage capacities apart from higher procurement costs. Future propulsion plants will need a high level of operational flexibility to handle different fuels for different ECA Emission Control Areas and operation on different liquid or gaseous fuels. Not to mention the missing storage facilities all over the world for different fuels and the establishment of a guaranteed supply system.

The current annual global supply of marine gas oil is about 15 million tons. The demand is expected to jump up to 60 million tons in 2015, as a result of the IMO rule! The shipping industry has well justified doubts about reliable supplies of low sulphur marine fuel within a relative tight timeframe for its more than 50.000 merchant vessels.

AMEM has been stressing the fact that a very essential element of the future marine fuel equation is missing – refineries! Are the refiners ready at all to invest billions of dollars to produce cleaner burning fuel for ship owners and operators being known for their proverbial cost mindedness!

At what cost? At what price?

Austria’s contribution to the global marine industry is in fact quite surprising!

A hallmark of the Austrian marine business is that many of the companies involved are family owned, with long and unbroken histories (“Mittelstand”). Small is beautiful! This applies not only to this landlocked country, but to its manufacturing sector too!

Austria’s lakes and the river Danube attract millions of visitors every year. However, due to the tight restrictions on the use of marine combustion engines, which are banned altogether in many areas , electric boating and sailing have become very popular.

AMEM is happy to publish a small directory on Austrian small ship, yacht and boat builders as well as suppliers of allied marine equipment well ahead of the Austrian Boat Show in Tulln, approximately 60km West of Vienna, 3 – 6 of March 2011.

AMEM – a candid advocator for the mature, Austrian marine equipment manufacturing industry

Content

South Korea’s “Act for the Promotion of the Component & Material Industries” and the “MCT Material & Component Technology 2010 Vision” forming part of a 10-years plan were setting an over-ambitious target of “more than 90 percent of domestic supply for shipbuilding in 2010” which is – no doubt – a mega trade barrier!

How could the European Commission turn a blind eye to such a legislation?

The Free Trade Agreement with South Korea was overhasty signed by the European commissioner for trade Catherine Ashton and the Korean Trade Minister, KIM Jong-hoon on the 15th of October 2009. The UK’s candidate for the job of a “High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy” desperately needed a diplomatic profile – regardless of the cost! That simple!

The current proposals give an unfair advantage to the Korean shipbuilding and marine equipment industry simultaneously setting a dangerous precedent for FTAs between the European Union and other major trading partners in the Far East, above all the Peoples Republic of China. Free Trade Agreements are more and more considered as useful tools to support the lame foreign policy of the European Union, as they are governed by a “give-for-free” mentality in order to achieve diplomatic pseudo success on the path to alleged global governance.

The tremendous success of the Korean shipbuilding industry is the result of an aggressive, bold, and militant trade and industrial policy indoctrinated by “Commando-Capitalism”, a unique partnership of the President and the Government of the Republic of Korea, SOBs large state owned banks, and the Chaebols, the huge industrial conglomerates! In the early 1960s, the Korean Government identified and designated shipbuilding as the strategic top priority for the enhancement of the nation’s economy! To achieve this ambitious goal, the government established the “Special Maritime Administration Committee “to render unbending and uncompromising full support for the development of the shipbuilding and equipment industry”.

A series of shipbuilding industry promotion laws were accompanying this strategy which ultimately culminated in an “Act for the Promotion of the Component & Material Industries” supported by the MCT Material & Component Technology 2010 Vision – a 10 years plan. At USD 43.1 billion in 2008, shipbuilding ranked first among Korean exports for the first time in history, outpacing automobiles and semiconductors! Irrespective of an unforeseeable, mostly speculation driven hype of unimaginable dimensions followed by extremely serious economic consequences, the Koreans will - strongly assisted by the Free Trade Agreement - reach their goal set for 2010 easily!

Maritime Authorities or Administrations are national agencies of the Member States, with a primary role in maritime safety, protection of the environment and maritime search and rescue.

Their responsibilities include among others:

  • Participation in the development of national and international maritime safety and environmental protection standards;

  • Provision of the national aids to navigation and navigational network – Vessel Traffic Monitoring Systems – including development and application of international navigational safety policy and standards;

  • Enforcement of operational standards for ships in their territorial waters to promote seaworthiness, safety and pollution prevention; 

  • Registration of ships under the national flag and keeping of records on ships subject to their national jurisdiction;

  • Enforcement of training standards and competency of seafarers and coastal pilots;

  • Maintaining maritime distress and safety communications services;

  • Coordination of SAR Search and  Rescue operations;

This AMEM publication gives an updated  listing not only of all the 25 Maritime Authorities of the European Union plus Norway, Iceland and even Switzerland, but also the accession countries like Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania. With the Faroe Islands, the Isle of Man and Gibraltar, the number of European Maritime Authorities comes to a total of 34 individual administrations which clearly demonstrates the "patchwork style" pattern of national maritime authorities in Europe. What a challenging situation for EMSA and the Member States with respect to the creation of a single European Maritime Administration!

Intellectual Property Rights

Intellectual Property Rights and the European Marine Equipment Industry

1st Edition 2006
28 pages

Content

AMEM has been advocating the interests of the SMEs in general and the mature marine equipment manufacturing industry in particular over the last years. The committment of the European Commission was a rhetoric alibi quite often, while SME representatives have been complaining that neither their expectations in the EU research and funding programmes nor the protection of their industrial property were taken seriously into consideration. To the contrary – industrial property of SMEs has been draining primarily through technology transfer initiatives into Asia, the US and the rest of the world, governed by a "make friends by spending other people's industrial property" mentality.

This study is a try to extract and condense those aspects and issues of IPR which directly tackle the interests of the  manufacturing maritime equipment industry with regard to the major groups of industrial property rights:

  • patents

  • trademarks and branding

  • industrial design

  • utility models and

  • data bases

It clearly illustrates the schizophrenic approach of the Commission which stretches from a give-for-free approach to this problem - for example in the ICT Industry – to the establishment of a uniform internationally accredited Community law on industrial property rights in a way of protection as any other form of property.

Special emphasis is given to the fact that the European Commission in general has a very liberal approach to IPRs, while the US follow an explicitly pragmatic and protectionist philosophy. The position of China with respect to industrial property is clearly defined by the target for 2010 to increase the percentage of domestic supplies to the Chinese shipbuilding industry up to 80 percent!

Worldwide counterfeiting and piracy of European marine equipment are the proof for the technological leadership of this mature high tech industry. European leadership based on innovation has to be protected by efficient Industrial Property Rights otherwise the future of the marine equipment manufacturing industry will be in line with the criminal concepts for an advanced de-industrialisation of Europe!

European IPR legislation is fragmented for the time being despite some steps towards harmonisation. Every European Member State has its own Intellectual/Industrial Property Rights – not even Luxembourg and Belgium share a common right!

The RNLN as is stated in the most recent Defence White Paper always had an expeditionary capability. However, with the end of the Cold War, a requirement was set to increase this expeditionary capability and introduce new equipment for conflict prevention, crisis response and allied territorial defence. The Netherlands fleet is composed of modern platforms carrying excellent sensors and systems the majority of them designed and manufactured locally. Some of the main Dutch industrial players in navy shipbuilding are leaders in technology on a worldwide scale.
