Collett adds Manoovr

first_imgHLPFI reported in October 2015 that Nooteboom had launched its new Manoovr trailer.The Manoovr low loader features an adjustable platform height from 920 mm to 780 mm, as well as unique suspension and a 70 degree steering angle. The pendulum axles allow an axle load of 12 tonnes, which Collett says is the highest permitted axle load in Europe.With a 100-tonne capacity and a bed that can be extended from 12 m to 30.35 m, Collett says that its latest addition provides the company with an adaptable solution for heavy transport projects in an increasingly demanding industry. Nooteboom’s Manoovr trailer. Meanwhile, Collett also completed the delivery of 18 loads, with a combined total weight of 600 tonnes, for the development of the Sinfin waste treatment plant in Derby.Collett was called upon by freight forwarding company Expeditors to handle the transport. The consignment was shipped from the manufacturer in Portugal to the UK Port of Goole on board the vessel Fehn Courage.In Goole, Collett oversaw all marine agency and stevedoring services, as well as the discharge of the 18 units using a 500-tonne capacity crane. Each piece was then lifted on to trailers for transport to Collett’s depot in Goole, where the cargo was stored before its delivery to the site. Once the plant was ready to receive the equipment, Collett began the transport of all 18 pieces of cargo to the Sinfin site. The heaviest loads – weighing in at 80 tonnes each – required some careful route navigation due to tight residential streets and a number of bridges, explained the company.  www.collett.co.ukwww.nooteboomgroup.comlast_img read more

Grenada PM wants more strategic US-Caribbean relations

first_imgGEORGE’S, Grenada, CMC – The Grenada government says it does not believe that the United States has treated the Caribbean as strategically important as it should.A government statement said Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell met last weekend with the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs of the United States Department of State, Julie Chung and cited a need for more engagement between the United States and Caribbean governments.“Historically, Grenada and the United States have had good relations but I do not think the US has treated the Caribbean as strategically important as it should.Washington remains committed to the Caribbean “There have been periods of active engagement, particularly after Hurricane Ivan in 2004 but regional leaders feel there is a need for greater engagement with the United States,” Mitchell is quoted as saying The statement quoted Chung as giving assurances that Washington is committed to ongoing relations with the Caribbean, making reference to the US strategy for engagement in the region, dubbed “Caribbean 2020,” which is designed to increase the security, prosperity and well- being of the people of the US and the Caribbean.“As part of the Caribbean 2020 initiative, we are looking at very specific events to showcase how the partnership goes beyond security.Security and econ prosperity are top priorities“Security is very important and we will continue with that, but beyond that, economic prosperity is also important, creating jobs and thinking about the next generation of leaders,” said Chung, who was accompanied by US Ambassador to Barbados, the Eastern Caribbean and the OECS,  Linda Swartz Taglialatela..Mitchell welcomed the potential prospects for improved relations with the United States, saying a priority area for Grenada would be training opportunities that can help to further empower young people.“We have a very youthful population and I think what exists here is somewhat replicated around the region. The challenge is how do you empower these young people to help themselves and their society. Training is a fundamental aspect of this and it has implications for security as well, as more young people will be engaged in positive activities,” he said.The statement said that the meeting also discussed the current situation in Venezuela where Washington is backing efforts by the opposition to oust President Nicolas Maduro from office.The statement said that Prime Minister Mitchell reinforced the position of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) which has continuously advocated non-interference in the internal affairs of the country as well as meaningful dialogue leading to agreement on how best to resolve the crisis.last_img read more

NYU Wireless Researchers are Helping the FCC Shape the 5G Standard

first_imgNYU WIRELESS is the first university center to combine wireless engineering, computing, and medical applications research all under one roof. This center is home to unprecedented experimentation with mmWave spectrum, including pioneering research on propagation measurements, radio channel modeling, system simulation and antenna technology. The center, led by Professor Theodore (Ted) S. Rappaport, answered a call for input by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to help shape 5G, the ultra-fast future of wireless communications. They gave a comprehensive set of recommendations to assure that the United States remains both innovative and competitive in the fierce global race to develop technologies to meet the demand for mobile data.The per-user consumer demand for mobile content is on pace to increase between 60 and 100 percent each year for the foreseeable future, placing impossible burdens on the grossly overextended spectrum utilized by today’s mobile technologies. Current mobile services rely on spectrum below 3 GHz, offering transfer rates at tens of megabits per second (4G/LTE).By contrast, the mmWave occupies frequencies from 30 to 300 GHz, many times higher than frequencies in which today’s cellular systems operate. In this new spectrum, much wider radio channels can be used, and services promises to be much faster. The NYU WIRELESS researchers explain it will support high-bandwidth content at speeds exceeding 10 gigabits per second—a thousand times today’s current mobile phone download speeds. These speeds will be needed for cloud-based applications and to support new technologies as autonomous cars, wireless medical devices, and the Internet of Things—the growing web of interconnected digital devices for the home and office. The researchers point out that their recommendations could allow current cellphone carriers to keep up with demand while spawning new local carriers and new content distribution models as well as technology breakthroughs.The FCC’s development of an effective strategy for unleashing the mmWave spectrum has wide implications, both domestic and global. Rappaport and his NYU WIRELESS colleagues outline their recommendations to guide this process, which fall into three main areas: global competitiveness and regulation, safety, and feasibility and timing.last_img read more

Fish Bill Testimony Runs Overtime

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Earlier this morning the Senate State Affairs Committee took testimony on Sen. Bill Stoltze’s bill, which would prioritize the personal use fishery over others during times of low abundance. But Homer commercial fisherman Wes Humberg said there are intrinsic problems with the dipnet fishery that need to be addressed before this bill should be considered… Humberg: “They have taken and now they charge people to go dip netting in the Kenai River. That’s another commercial enterprise against the commercial drift fleet or the set netters. Now we’ve got guys building dip nets. That’s another commercial enterprise going on. I don’t begrudge anybody for taking their salmon, but let’s get it down to the point where we quite shipping this fish out of the state. Millions and millions of pounds of salmon leaving here. How much fish does a person need? If you need 200 salmon to feed your family, more power to you.” Sen. Stoltze(R-Chugiak): “By and large I’m a huge supporter of the commercial fishing industry. I see the vibrance, vitality, and economic importance of the commercial fishing industry and I’m very proud, I was reappointed, I’m starting my ninth year serving on the Seafood Marketing Board. The only committee I requested of all the committees we have an opportunity to serve on. I didn’t try and find a sportfish committee, I found one that really benefits our state’s economy and the commercial fish, so it’s not an either/or. It really gives some more tools to address an  Alaskan-ization of our fisheries.” Testimony ran overtime, the bill will be scheduled for another hearing.last_img read more
