The international community should, he stated, “support these efforts by providing the necessary public and private resources”. Mr. Jenča said the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres had called on world leaders to come to the UN Climate Action Summit in September 2019 “with concrete, realistic plans to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by 45 per cent over the next decade, and to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.” Commending the timeliness of the meeting, he said it was a year of important global review processes that were of direct significance to the Caribbean. He was referring to the Addis Ababa Action Plan on financing for sustainable development; the mid-term review of the SAMOA Pathway for SIDS and the Climate Action Summit both slated for September 2019, as well as the just concluded the High-level Political Forum review of the 2030 Agenda.

Liebherr crawler working hard on wind farm

first_imgWith a main boom 108 metres in length and a fixed jib of 12 metres (the SL3F system), the crane recently lifted a Games G90 machine housing weighing 75 tonnes onto the top of a 100 metre tower. Bigge Crane is one of the largest crane hire companies in North America with a fleet consisting of crawler cranes, all-terrain, rough-terrain, and tower cranes, as well as truck cranes. Services range from bare rental of equipment through to complete project performance. As well as this, Bigge is also a leading transportation and heavy lift contractor with in-house engineering and design capacity. A number of the units in the Bigge crane fleet are intended especially for the wind power industry, and the LR 1600/2 was also specifically selected for operations in this sector. A whole range of advantages persuaded Bigge that the Liebherr 600-tonner had to be the right choice to make. Liebherr says that the crane is ideally suited for operations in the wind power industry. The SL main boom, at 108 metres in length, and the fixed jib at 12 metres, can achieve hook heights of 117 metres without the need for a derrick or auxiliary crane. With a lifting capacity of more than 95 tonnes this configuration is ideal for the assembly and installation of wind power systems in the 3 MW class on 100 metre towers. And with a derrick system, this kind of work is possible even on towers of 120 metres in height.last_img read more

Tuscor Lloyds gets reel going

first_imgThe steel wire rope reel was picked up from the manufacturer’s facility in Newcastle and transported by road to the port of Felixstowe.Tuscor Lloyds said that it chose to ship the cargo from Felixstowe rather than Newcastle’s port of Tyne because it allowed for a reduced transit time and more direct route from the UK to South Korea.The cable reel was delivered to the quayside in Felixstowe, where two flatrack containers had already been lifted and loaded onto a container vessel.A heavy lift crane was then used to lift the cable reel onto the containers, which had been fitted with heavy dunnage spanning the complete width of the two flatracks in order to spread the weight and increase the friction.Securing was carried out by the port stevedores using wooden chocks, two-tonne webbing lashings on each corner and four-tonne webbing lashing on the arms of the reel, which ensured that the cargo would be safe for ocean transit to Busan.Once in Busan, the cable reel was unloaded from the vessel using onsite cranes fitted with specialist gear for heavy cargo, before being transferred onto low loader trucks and delivered to the port of Masan.From the port of Masan, the cargo was loaded onto another container vessel using two more flatracks and similar securing methods for shipment to the Philippine port of Manila.  www.tuscorlloyds.comlast_img read more
