ALE moves crane in one piece

first_imgAmong the challenges of the Loma Blanca wind farm project is the narrow dirt roads between the wind turbines. In some parts, these tracks measure just 6 m wide.In order to easily move the crane around the project site, it has been adapted and placed on to 36 axle lines of SPMTs, which are within the width limitations of the tracks.As part of this solution, the crane, which measures 120 m high, can be moved in one piece, reducing the time required between lifts.“Avoiding the need to disassemble and reassemble for every lift, we provided the most cost-effective option possible, which also reduced operational costs,” explained Andres Crespo, ALE’s engineering manager.ALE also adapted the crawler crane to increase its lifting capacity. The company has been contracted to install 16 wind turbine generators at the project site in Patagonia.www.ale-heavylift.comlast_img read more

Dominica on full alert for Zika Virus

first_img Tweet 175 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring! Share LocalNews Dominica on full alert for Zika Virus by: Dominica Vibes News – January 8, 2016center_img Share Share Aedes aegypti mosquitoThe Ministry of Health and the Environment has announced that it is on full alert and has a plan of action to minimize the risk to Dominicans posed by Zika Virus.Zika virus belongs to the same family of viruses as dengue and chikungunya and is predominantly transmitted via the bite of the Aedes aegypti mosquito but may also be transmitted via blood transfusion, from mother to unborn baby and also through sexual intercourse. It takes 3 to 12 days from exposure to onset of signs and symptoms.The symptoms of the Zika virus include fever, rash, joint pain, and red eyes. The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting from several days to a week. Severe illness requiring hospitalization is uncommon.There is an ongoing outbreak in Brazil since May 2015 and it has been confirmed in Martinique, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Paraguay, Suriname, and Venezuela.“The Ministry is on full alert and has put a plan of action for the prevention and control of Zika virus. The plan is aimed at what we refer to as source reduction, reducing mosquito population in Dominica,” Chief Medical Officer, Dr Johnson said on Friday 8 January 2016.Dr Johnson informed that the plan of action also focuses on the clinical management of persons presenting with Zika virus and “very importantly I should say, our plan of action involves an aggressive public education campaign to empower the general public to take the necessary measures to protect themselves against the bites of mosquitoes, particularly the aedes aegypti mosquitoes, as well as the reduction in the number of breeding sites of those mosquitoes”.In addition, Dr Johnson disclosed that the Ministry of Health and the Environment has been in close communication with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), the World Health Organization (WHO) and Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) in monitoring the situation in the region.According to Dr Johnson, over seventy-five percent of Zika virus cases might be A symptomatic meaning that persons may not present with the real signs and symptoms of the disease.“So it is very likely, although we don’t have any evidence to date that Zika Virus is circulating in Dominica, that the Zika virus might enter Dominica undetected, in other words, someone might enter the country with Zika virus without appearing to be ill,” Dr Johnson explained.As such, the Ministry of Health, based on the guidelines of both of the Caribbean Public Health Agency and the Pan American Health Organization, “will be taking blood specimens for persons who are suspected from suffering from Zika Virus and these specimens will be sent to CARPHA in Trinidad for testing for confirmation of the disease”.last_img read more

Agriculture Ministry Pursues Estate Farming

first_img Share Share BusinessLocalNews Agriculture Ministry Pursues Estate Farming by: – June 22, 2020 Share Tweetcenter_img The Agriculture Ministry says it is embarking on a new initiative that will both encourage young farmers and reduce agricultural imports.Hon Minister for the Blue and Green Economy, Agriculture and National Food Security, Fidel Grant, explained on Sunday that says state lands will be turned into estate farms where young people can collaborate to grow what is considered exotic crops.Imported produce like bell peppers, cantaloupes, mushrooms and others which come with hefty price tags will be grown by youth who do not have access to property to establish their own gardens.He says the Chinese Agricultural Mission on the island is a partner in that endeavour which should produce specific crops year round.“We have acquired the land, we have some preparation to do but…we are going to tackle it as an estate type of farm.”Minister Grant described, “You will find  a group of young people, who would be owners of the estate and would be working to produce these specialized crops. Of course with the Ministry of Agriculture along with the Chinese Mission we would be providing the technical aspect that they need. We are not just going to give it to them, we would work with them until they have become established farmers.”He also said that other avenues exist for young people who opt to either lease government land at $1 per annum or access concessionary financing to purchase their own.“There is still monies available at the Aid Bank at 2% [interest] so persons who are interested could apply for that facility,” he said. “A lot of the young people have been complaining that they do not have access to lands, we have been working with the Ministry of Lands to identify areas that has been designated for farming so if a young person is interested in farmin,g they could fill out an application with the Lands and Surveys Division and then a piece of land of a2-3 acres could be assigned to them for that purpose.”Minister Grant said, “We provide you with low cost financing we provided you with the land and occasionally we provide you with the inputs.” 95 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Two Second half goals ignite Argos Men’s Soccer over Flames

first_img Full Schedule Roster Preview Next Game: at Shorter 10/13/2019 – 1:30 pm ETcenter_img Cleveland, Tenn.- After a tightly contested first half, the 14th ranked UWF Men’s Soccer team was able to score two second half goals to pull away from Lee by a final score of 2-0 on Friday night inside the Lee Soccer Complex.West Florida (8-1-0, 3-1-0) was actually outshot on the night by the Flames by a total of 9-6 but were able to get as many chances as their opponent by collecting an even amount of corner kicks with both teams having two.In the first half, the backline of Lucas Barankiewicz, Brandon Jose and Hakeem Reid, filling in for the injured Jerry Wiltshire, was able to clamp down the Flames while the Argos offense got rolling.  Goalkeeper Jihad Gomes was big as well with two key saves in the opening period.  It was a good test for Gomes, the Brazilian goalkeeper who missed the second half of the Argos 1-0 loss against AUM on Sunday with an injury.The second half would see UWF open the game up and finally get on the board when Sean Hoffstatter and Ryan Sandidge were able to sneak the ball in the box to find Bernardo Torres in the 57th minute for his second goal on the year.  It would be just two minutes later that Ed Chappe would continue his strong play on the season to collect his third goal for the year and give the Argos a commanding lead in the match.From there on, a collective team defensive effort led by midfielders Davi Alves, Sandidge and senior Rafael Godoi, was enough to rattle to Lee and lift West Florida to a 2-0 victory.Next Up: The Argos will wrap up their quick road trip with a Sunday afternoon match at Shorter.  Kickoff against the Hawks is set for 12:30 pm.For everything on the UWF Men’s Soccer team, visit, or follow the team’s social media channels on Facebook and Instagram @UWFSoccer and on Twitter @UWFMSoccer.Print Friendly Version Live Statslast_img read more

Man United ‘haven’t said their final word’ in €30m centre-back signing –…

first_imgRemember that clip of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appearing to jokingly tell Nathan Aké his club were looking for a left-footed centre-back? Well, it won’t be the Dutchman since he went off to Manchester City in exchange for £40m or so on Wednesday, but it could be Gabriel Magalhães.At least, that’s what La Voix du Nord are suggesting on Thursday, claiming Manchester United ‘haven’t said their final word’ when it comes to the Brazilian defender.Currently contracted to Lille, the centre-back has been given the green light to leave, and the Ligue 1 club are simply waiting for him to make his mind up.The article explains he has, and his preferred destination would be Arsenal after recent exchanges with the London club.It’s said he wants to move as quickly as possible, which is all well and good, but the Gunners recently made it clear they aren’t flush with cash and Lille want €30m.That’s why there could be a small opening for Manchester United, especially after they managed to qualify for the Champions League.They’d likely quite comfortably afford the €30m asking price, but they now have the task of quickly convincing him that a move to Old Trafford would be better than playing under Mikel Arteta.Then again, this wouldn’t be the first time Manchester United were used by Lille to try and get a better deal for one of their players…by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayInvest With VICShe collects rental-like income every month!
