GAC Laser moves giant brewery tanks without any spills!

first_imgCommissioned by brewery specialists Ziemann Group in Germany, the project entailed sailing from Antwerp through GAC agent Zust & Bachmeier, clearance on arrival at Richards Bay and a week-long road trip to their final destination. Regional Managing Executive Carol Holland and colleagues at GAC Laser Durban were at the port when the 22 metre long tanks arrived, to ensure that the eight hour unloading operation was carried out with the utmost care and in accordance with South African Port Operations safety procedures, before they started their 700 km journey by truck to Rosslyn. Ms Holland says the eight months of planning in preparation for the project paid off. Despite the huge unusual loads and challenges involved, the operation was completed without any ‘spills’, much to the satisfaction of Joachim Breitenbach of Ziemann Group. “When fully operational, these five tanks – each capable of holding 615, 441 litres – will have enough beer to fill over 5.4 million glasses of beer in pubs throughout South Africa and I can picture a lot of happy customers as a result,” she quipped. GAC Laser is jointly owned and controlled by South African logistics company The Laser Group, and the Dubai-based GAC Group.last_img read more

ProvPort plays offshore wind part

first_imgGE, which recently completed its acquisition of Alstom’s offshore wind unit, is supplying the 6 MW Haliade 150 offshore wind turbines for the Block Island site – the first offshore wind farm under construction in the USA.The first five of 15 tower sections, measuring around 29 m high each, arrived at the new temporary facility that GE is building in Providence by ship last week.Over the next six months, GE will install the critical electrical, mechanical, and safety equipment within the bottom tower sections. The remaining tower sections will arrive in Rhode Island next year.GE and Deepwater Wind have teamed up with several local contractors to assist with this project, including: Aladdin Electric, Bay Crane New England, Essex Newbury, E.W. Audet & Sons, Aero Mechanical, Waterson Terminal Services, GZA GeoEnvironmental, VHB, and Fuss & O’Neill.”We are pleased to support Deepwater Wind’s historic efforts to establish the first offshore wind warm in the USA. In addition to assisting Deepwater Wind with this project, we believe ProvPort is perfectly situated to continue to position Rhode Island as a leader in offshore wind development as we offer 3,500 ft (1,066 m) of linear berthing space, 20 acres (8 ha) of open lay down area and 40 ft (12 m) of deep draft,” said Paul Moura, chairman of ProvPort’s board of directors.Since the first ‘steel in the water’ at Block Island in July 2015, Deepwater Wind has completed installation of the five steel jacket foundations and pile driving for those foundations. Installation of the deck platforms is expected to finish in the coming weeks. Submarine cable installation is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2016, with erection of the five offshore wind turbines set for the summer of 2016. The project is scheduled to be in service and generating power in the fourth quarter of 2016.   www.dwwind.comwww.provport.comwww.ge.comlast_img read more

Jamaica gets US$67-m IMF drawdown

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica — The Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has approved disbursement of US $67 million for Jamaica.The development follows a successful sixth review of the country’s economic performance under the four-year Extended Fund Facility (EEF).The completion of the sixth review follows a November 5 to 11 visit to Jamaica by the IMF mission team, which said Jamaica’s programme with the Fund “remains on track and strong”.In a release Friday, December 19, Deputy Managing Director and Acting Chair of the IMF Board, Naoyuki Shinohara said that the fiscal performance of the Jamaican economy is on track and all quantitative performance targets for the end of September were met.“Macroeconomic performance under the programme continues to be good and growth is showing signs of picking up” Shinohara said.He noted that “wide-ranging actions” to boost growth and employment are critical for the success of the programme.Shinohara added that the Jamaican government, in preparing the 2015/16 budget, has an opportunity to “strengthen the quality of fiscal adjustment including by advancing public sector reform.”He said reforms to enhance the business climate should also be accelerated by “cutting red tape, reforming the energy sector and making the public sector more client-oriented.” 131 Views   no discussions NewsRegional Jamaica gets US$67-m IMF drawdown by: Jamaica Observer – December 20, 2014 Tweet Sharecenter_img Share Share Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Bantu Petugas dan Penumpang, Bandara Changi Operasikan 47 Unit Robot,Hentikan Operasional Sementara, Inilah TransNusa, Maskapai Perintis yang Berbasis di Kupang

first_imgRobot LeoScrub di Bandara Changi (straitstimes.com) Berbagai keindahan ditawarkan oleh Bandara Internasional Changi Singapura. Sebab Bandara Jewel Changi dilengkapi dengan air terjun indoor, berbagai macam taman dan area hiburan. Tak hanya bisa dinikmati oleh para pelancong yang tiba, berangkat atau transit, tetapi bagi pengunjung yang tidak terbang pun bisa merasakannya.Baca juga: Sambut New Normal, Bandara Changi Kerahkan Robot Pembersih dan Toilet Tanpa KontakTernyata tak hanya itu, Bandara Changi kini juga melengkapi diri dengan menghadirkan berbagai macam robot yang bisa membantu petugas dan penumpang untuk mendapat pengalaman yang lebih baik. Salah satunya robot yang membantu membersihkan genangan di lantai basah karena cipratan air terjun indoor dengan ketinggian 40 meter. Dilansir KabarPenumpang.com dari straitstimes.com (2/9/2020), ada dua robot tak kenal lelah yakni robot LeoScrub milik Jewel. Kedua robot ini merupakan besutan perusahaan lokal LionBots Internasional dan bagian dari armada otomatis yang terus berkembang untuk membantu menjaga Bandara Changi setiap harinya.Robot pembersih LeoScrub sendiri merupakan bagian dari 47 robot di Jewel dan Terminal bandara. Tak hanya itu, robot tersebut juga semakin sering dipanggil untuk berinteraksi dengan pengunjung dalam berbagai cara.LeoScrub dilengkapi dengan kode QR pada bagian dada kirinya dan pengunjung bisa memindai dengan ponsel mereka untuk membuka menu dengan pertanyaan yang dapat mereka ajukan pada robot. Selain itu, dengan kode QR ini juga, pengunjung bisa meminta robot untuk bernyanyi. Selain robot pembersih, Jewel juga memiliki robot pramutamu yang akan digunakan pada akhir tahun ini.“Penggunaan robot telah membantu meringankan tugas yang lebih melelahkan dari staf kami, serta tugas mitra kami, di Jewel,” kata kepala pengalaman pengguna Jewel Changi Airport, Kelvin Tan.Kelvin menambahkan bahwa staf telah mampu bekerja lebih cerdas dan produktif. Di mana petugas kebersihan biasanya berkeliling sekali sehari untuk mengumpulkan sampah dari setiap toko di Jewel. Ini bisa memakan waktu satu setengah jam hanya untuk satu tingkat mall.Tetapi empat robot LeoPull yang merupakan saudara robot LeoScrub sudah menangani pengumpulan sampah di lantai ketiga Jewel dan akan ada yang lebih banyak lagi pada akhir tahun. Setiap LeoPull menarik tempat sampah besar yang disesuaikan dan akan berhenti di depan setiap toko dan membunyikan bel untuk memberi tahu penyewa tentang kedatangannya.Ini sepenuhnya dilakukan sendiri, karena telah diprogram dengan rutenya. Serangkaian sensor juga membantu robot menghindari rintangan dan orang serta memberi tahu operatornya apa yang akan dilakukannya pada satu titik. Meski begitu operator juga dapat memberikan instruksi, jika diperlukan, melalui aplikasi.Meskipun mereka mungkin menarik perhatian, LeoScrubs dan LeoPulls bukanlah robot paling populer di Bandara Changi. Perbedaan itu adalah milik robot Delight setinggi 1,3m, yang berkeliling di sekitar Jewel’s Canopy Park dua kali sehari, menawarkan kepada pengunjung minuman botol dan permen gratis.Baca juga: Ssstt..! Ada Robot Polisi Lalu Lintas di Bandara Changi“Robot Delight telah terbukti sangat populer sejak Canopy Park dibuka tahun lalu. Ini diprogram untuk mengikuti rute yang ditetapkan. Tapi kita juga bisa memicunya secara manual untuk kembali saat minuman habis,” kata eksekutif pengalaman pengguna Jewel Changi Airport, Euguene Tan, yang merupakan bagian dari tim yang mengawasi robot Jewel.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedJewel Changi, Bakal Jadi Destinasi Wisata Gaya Baru via Bandara Changi19/09/2018In “Bandara”Angkut Bagasi Penumpang, Bandara Internasional Dallas-Forth Worth Gunakan Robot FLEET17/07/2019In “Bandara”Geser Yang “Manual,” Selamat Datang Era Robotika di Bandara04/09/2017In “Bandara”last_img read more
