Allseas and Synergy relocate factory

first_imgAllseas was contracted by Synergy Cargo Services Europe Pty Ltd to move the Bridgewater factory to Chittagong, where it will be reassembled and refurbished for operation by MAF Paper Mills .The relocation required the shipment of pieces up to 5.8 metres wide; the consignment included a series of massive tanks and drums as well as 132 high-cube containers, 40 x 40-foot flatracks and several open-top 20-foot containers.The size of the largest pieces meant a road journey of any distance was not an option for the largest pieces, so these were shipped out of Ellesmere Port (near to the factory location) by feeder to Antwerp, for loading on the SCI Chennai .The project, managed by Synergy managing director Sanjoy Das , Synergy director Amit Ahuja , and Allseas Global Logistics commercial manager Mark Binge , began in November 2010 and is now nearing completion.The factory – technically called a de-inking plant – will be refurbished in Chittagong and is expected to be 100 percent operational in the next nine to 12 months, producing pulp.Factory relocations represent a major area of business for Allseas, which has developed a strong reputation and expertise in such work. “We have been extremely busy handling factory relocations in recent years,” said Mark Binge. “Ten years ago these were mainly moves to China as the final destination – but the markets are now much more varied.”Last year Allseas was appointed by Pilkington to handle the relocation of a glass factory from Birmingham in the UK to Santos in Brazil.Synergy, a rapidly growing global logistics company with bases in Dubai, India, Colombo and London, has recently handled major project cargoes out of Wales and Germany, amongst others.last_img read more

Ireland secure superb Nations Cup victory after dramatic night in Drammen

first_img The Irish Show Jumping team have scored a magnificent Nations Cup victory, after a titanic battle at Drammen in Norway tonight (Friday), where a gripping contest was decided by a single fault.Capt Geoff Curran riding Ringwood Glen (ISH) to the round that secured victory for Ireland in the Drammen Nations Cup Photo FEI/Hannah StarkebyeWaterford-born Army rider Capt. Geoff Curran sealed victory for the Irish, with a dramatic last-gasp round aboard The Minister For Defence-owned Irish Sport Horse Ringwood Glen, to deny runners-up Belgium who had to settle for second.Ireland held the lead at the halfway stage on 10 faults. Meath’s Alexander Butler recovered from a tricky round first time out with Hallowberry Cruz (ISH)(TIH) to finish with 9 faults second time out. Louth’s Mark McAuley then put Ireland in the driving seat with a superb second round with Utchan De Belheme, where they finished with just a time fault. Mayo’s Cameron Hanley and the eight-year-old Quirex had finished with just a time fault in the first round and came home with five faults in the decider.However Belgium were in inspired form in the second round – chasing points in their bid to regain Division 1 status. Clear rounds from Olivier Philippaerts (H&M Legend Of Love) and Pieter Devos (Dream Of India Greenfield) kept the pressure firmly on Ireland.Waterford’s Capt. Geoff Curran and Ringwood Glen (ISH) were last to go for Ireland, knowing four faults would give Ireland victory but even a time fault extra would open the door to the Belgians. The Army Equitation rider and Ringwood Glen picked up four faults with a toe in the water but Curran kept his cool to match his four fault score from the first round and seal victory for the Irish.Capt. Geoff Curran said:“I am absolutely delighted. Ringwood Glen is a real favourite in the Army Equitation School and he deserves this win. I am really happy to be part of this great team.”When asked if he knew he was in the water and that he couldn’t afford even a time fault, Capt Curran said,“I had a feeling that I might have been in the water and I knew I was tight enough on the time allowed but I kept the same plan of doing eight strides down to the last fence. It worked in the first round and thankfully again in the second but I didn’t plan on being quite that tight to the time allowed [0.21 of a second].”Ireland finished on a 20 fault total, with Belgium second on 21 while France finished third on 24.The result sealed a hat-trick of Nations Cup wins for Ireland’s development team manager Michael Blake. The Clare native had guided Ireland to a double of wins at the start of this year in Ocala and Wellington in Florida and this latest win makes it three wins in-a-row for Blake.“I knew coming here to Drammen that this was going to be tough but I also knew we had a good team. I said to Geoff going in, you can have a time fault or a fence but you can’t have both. He was under a lot of pressure going in last. I don’t think he knew for sure he was in the water and he got home just inside the time allowed – he did a brilliant job.“Belgium had their strongest team and it shows the depth in talent we have in Ireland to finish on the podium in La Baule and win here in Drammen on the same day. I’m over the moon and the lads all did a fantastic job. The credit has to go to them and to their horses owners for this win,” he said.As Ireland are a Division 1 nation they were not competing for points in Drammen which was a Division 2 fixture. The Irish Division 1 team, led by Rodrigo Pessoa, had earlier scored a podium finish in the five-star La Baule Nations Cup, finishing third behind winners France and runners-up Sweden.Drammen Nations Cup – Irish scoresAlexander Butler/Hallowberry Cruz (ISH)(TIH) (Ret) / (9)Mark McAuley/Utchan De Belheme 5/1Cameron Hanley/Quirex 1/5Capt.

Pippa & Cian O’Connor talk business strategies, working together and their love of the Dublin Horse Show

first_img Brother and sister duo Pippa and Cian O’Connor open up about their successful, and very different, businesses in the annual Dublin Horseshow glossy magazine produced by the Irish Field newspaper which launched last week and is now available in newsagents nationwide.The highly successful siblings are on top of their game, with Cian building the hugely successful Karlswood Stables and Pippa O’Connor Ormond taking over the world of fashion with her website, fashion factory events and most recently her POCO denim line. “IT’S just military precision and it works,” are the words the Olympic bronze medallist uses to describe the way he runs his show jumping business. While Pippa says; “You absolutely have to be into whatever you are doing, and believe it in 100% and know that it’s amazing.”In the 122 page magazine, produced exclusively by The Irish Field for the Dublin Horseshow, Pippa even opens up about her disastrous experience working for the brother when she was in her twenties; “I am laughing because it was a bit of a disaster. I think I was about 20, Cian needed a PA and I thought I would be a good fit. I wasn’t a good PA, he would find letters and things I was supposed to post in my car a month later, I was brutal.”Pippa goes on to say that, despite her huge success and all the strands to her Pippa brand, Cian is the one with the business acumen; “I wouldn’t say I have the savviest business mind in the world, that would be Cian, but I know what I want, and I know what works and thankfully that’s what making it such a successful business.” Cian comments that; “The big thing that I have learned over the years, and the key message would be, being busy and having huge numbers is not the measure of success. Quickly you learn in horses that numbers means high costs.”Pippa and Cian’s father, Tadgh O’Connor, sold cars for a living, so entrepreneurship and a sales ability was bred into the ambitious siblings. Pippa went on to tell the magazine that her son Ollie is now obsessed with horses and will have his first visit to the Horseshow this year. Pippa did not ignore another big part of the RDS Horseshow spectacular, fashion. The glamourous businesswomen commented; “I think the fashion is a bit more creative at the horse show – you could see anything and everything, which is great. I love that people aren’t afraid to experiment and show their personality. That’s what style and fashion is all about, not being afraid or sticking to a trend, it’s about showing your personality through your clothes, and whatever that is, doing it with confidence. For me, that’s what stands out.”The Dublin Horseshow Magazine is on sale this week and also features;• Pastures New: Ireland’s top ranked show jumper Bertram Allen (21) and his sister April (23) are branching out in the sport horse breeding season. Only in their early 20s, the Wexford siblings are now five years running their hugely successful German-based business.• Rio Olympian and vendor of Ireland’s most expensive sport horse, the €10m MHS Going Global, Greg Broderick, talks about his horses and expanding yard and why Ireland needs to up its game to cater to the world’s top owners• Hickstead Calling: Top show jumper Shane Breen and his wife Chloe, director and owner of Hickstead, talk about their lives and careers at one of the world’s most iconic showgrounds.• Top RDS team: The RDS has its own top team running the world famous Dublin Horse Show. RDS President Bernie Brennan and RDS Show Director Pat Hanly talk about the importance of the Show to every corner of Ireland.Speaking about the magazine, Editor Isabel Hurley said; “We are just weeks away from one of the greatest Horse Shows on earth, here on our doorstep in the heart of our capital city. Spinning off almost €50m into the Irish economy – an incredible €10m a day – the iconic Dublin Horse Show is one of Ireland’s best loved events. Combining top show jumping action such as the famous Aga Khan Nations Cup, the hugely popular Puissance wall jumping and the Longines Dublin Grand Prix with fashion, children’s ponies and fun, our Dublin Horse Show magazine has it all and showcases the €700m Irish Sport Horse industry which creates vital rural employment to the tune of over 13,000 jobs across every tiny parish in Ireland.”For further information on this interview and The Irish Field Dublin Horse Show Magazine or to request an interview with Editor Isabel Hurley, please contact Maeve Barry at [email protected] or call 087 6464075.
