Complex loading for Sparber shipment

first_imgAccording to Höegh, the component was the longest unit loaded onboard a ro-ro vessel in Valencia. The unit was secured onto specialised roll trailers for the loading operation.Before the unit could be rolled on to the Höegh Seoul, however, the shipping line used software to simulate the cargo loading and discharge scenarios in order to identify any potential risks.Höegh’s port captain Roger Duran explained: “When creating the drawings on how to stuff the roll trailer, it became clear that there would be a considerable overhang and therefore a potential risk to hit the ramp during operations.”The risk depended on the angle of the ramp and this can differ at load and discharge port, said Höegh, as the berth specifications can vary. To solve this challenge, the breakbulk operations team at Höegh calculated what the lowest ramp angle would be in both the load and the discharge ports.“With this at hand, we could determine the necessary ground clearance for the overhanging section,” explained Duran.As an extra precaution, Höegh added dunnage underneath the roll trailer when it passed over the critical section of the ramp. “Wooden blocks of specific strength and height were placed between the cargo and roll trailer to mitigate the risk and secure that we achieved the desired clearance,” added Duran.After the loading operation, Höegh Seoul continued on its journey to Jeddah, where the rail transfer cart will be used to move trains and support the maintenance of the Haramain high speed-rail network in Saudi Arabia.www.hoeghautoliners.comwww.sparbergroup.comlast_img read more

Israeli PM says speaks with leaders of Sudan, Chad

first_imgSudan’s PM Hamdok picked to chair Igad Sudan PM vows to boost ties with South Sudan Sudan’s new PM announces cabinet selections Related Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin NetanyahuIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that he has talked with the leaders of Sudan and Chad, countries with which Israel has no bilateral ties until recently.The remark was made at the start of the first weekly cabinet meeting of the new power-sharing government between Netanyahu and Benny Gantz, leader of the Blue and White party, a week after the unity government was sworn-in in the parliament.The meeting was held a few hours before the opening of the first hearing of Netanyahu’s criminal trial over corruption charges at the Jerusalem District Court.Netanyahu told the cabinet he had spoken with the leaders of Sudan and Chad over the past two days, and wished them happy Eid al-Fitr, a holiday marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.He said he wishes the ties between the countries would “strengthen further,” noting new diplomatic ties with “more Muslim countries” are “on the way.”Netanyahu and Sudan’s leader Abdel Fattah al-Burhan met in Uganda in February and agreed to move toward the normalization of their relations.In January 2019, during Netanyahu’s visit to Chad, he and Chadian President Idriss Deby announced the resumption of diplomatic ties for the first time since 1972.Forming new relations with Muslim countries is a key part of Netanyahu’s foreign policy, according to which the Israelis can normalize ties with their Arab neighbors and the Muslim world without inking a peace deal with the Palestinians.last_img read more

Exxelia to Exhibit High-Reliability RF/Microwave Components at IMS 2018

first_imgExxelia, a designer and manufacturer of innovative passive components and high-precision sub-systems for harsh environments will be showcasing their high-reliability microwave/RF components for medical, transportation and defense at IMS 2018. The International Microwave Symposium will take place from 12-14 June in Philadelphia. Some of the offerings at the event will include:Ultra low ESR, High RF Power and High Self-resonant FrequencyThe NHB series is a complete range of MLCC based on NPO dielectric material providing a very high Self Resonant Frequency and limiting the parasite Parallel Resonant Frequencies. The series is available in 1111 size with capacitance ranging from 0. 3pF to 100pF. NHB series offers excellent performance for RF power applications at high temperature up to 175°C and at 500 VDC. The lowest ESR is obtained by combining highly conductive metal electrodes and proprietary of new NPO low loss rugged dielectrics. NHB series particularly fits for high power and high frequency applications such as: cellular base station equipment, broadband wireless service, point to point / multipoint radios and broadcasting equipment. Typical circuit applications: impedance matching, bypass, feedback, tuning, coupling and DC blocking.100% Invar Tuning Screws with Self-Locking SystemThe Invar-36 is a unique Iron-Nickel alloy (64 % Fe / 36 % Ni) sought-after for its very low coefficient of thermal expansion. With 1.1 ppm. K–1 between 0°C and 100°C, Invar-36 is about 17 times more stable than Brass which is the most traditional and common alloy Tuning Elements are made of. The working temperature range in Space is so wide that this property becomes essential for a reliable and stable cavity filter tuning. Self-locking system is a technology commonly used on Tuning Element made of Brass or other soft “easy-to-machine” alloys but is innovative and pretty advanced when applied to hard and tough Invar 36. The design consists of two threaded segments separated by two parallel slots. After cutting both parallel slots, the rotor is compressed in its length in order to create a plastic deformation. Thus, an offset is induced between the two threaded segments which generates a constant tensile stress in the rotor from the moment threaded segments are screwed.High Q Factor Dielectric Resonators in Large BatchesDielectric resonators are designed to replace resonant cavities in microwave functions such as filters and oscillators. Exxelia with the support of ESA and CNES developed the E7000 series that provides a narrow bandwidth with smaller size. E7000 is Ba-Mg-Ta materials based that combines an ultra-high Q-factor and the possibility to get all the temperature coefficients upon request. It features the high-performance requested for space use in the frequency range from 5 to 32 GHz, and guarantees up to Qxf > 250 000 at 10GHZ. Being one of the few manufacturers producing its own raw materials, Exxelia perfectly masters the production of dielectric resonators. Induced by the success of this new range, the company is now able to provide larger batches (up to 20kg of powder) of its E7000 series while keeping the exact same product properties, resulting in opportunities for cost-effective volume fabrication.Click here to see everything RF’s coverage of IMS 2018.last_img read more

Ternyata 40% Turis Australia ke Bali Terbang Dengan JetStar

first_imgRobin Goh Bagi kebanyakan warga Australia, Bali adalah tujuan wisata terfavaorit saat berlibur ke luar negeri. Dan bagi Provinsi Bali, wisatawan asal Australia yang akrab disebut Aussie memang menempati urutan pertama pelancong berdasarkan asal negara. Data BPS Provinsi Bali pada September 2016 menyebut wisman asal Australia menempati urutan pertama dengan porsi 24,32 persen, dan kedua wisman asal Cina (18,02 persen). Tapi tahukah Anda masakapai mana yang paling banyak membawa Aussie ke Bali?Baca juga: Kerjasama Jetstar dengan Doku, Mudahkan Pelanggan Membeli TiketDalam sesi acara buka puasa bersama di Jakarta (7//6/2017), Robin Goh, Senior Communications Manager JetStar Asia menyebut, “Sampai saat ini kami adalah maskapai terbesar yang membawa penumpang dari Australia menuju Bali, berdasarkan riset kami, 40 persen wisatawan Australia ke Bali menggunakan JetStar,”ujar Robin Goh kepada KabarPenumpang.com. Lebih detail disebut, kota penyumbang wisatawan ke Bali paling banyak berasal dari kota Perth, berlanjut kemudian Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane dan Adelaide. Sebagai LCC (Low Cost Carrier), JetStar Asia dan JetStar Australia menjadikan Bali sebagai point penting. “Sejak membuka penerbangan perdana ke Bali pada tahun 2007, pertumbuhan penumpang dari Australia ke Bali telah meningkat 55 kali. Tak kurang ada 60 penerbangan JetStar ke Bali setiap minggu,” tambah Simon. Bahkan karena dianggap sebagai rute utama yang padat penumpang, sejak awal Januari 2014 JetStar telah mengoperasikan pesawat berbadan lebar (wide body) Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Dengan Dreamliner, dalam satu kali terbang JetStar dapat mengangkut langsung 222 penumpang. Untuk tujuan Bali, JetStar juga menyiapkan pesawat narrow body dengan Airbus A320-200 yang berkapasitas 180 kursi.Baca juga: Kementerian Pariwisata Gandeng Jetstar Bangun Pariwisata IndonesiaBergabung dalam aliansi penerbangan internasional, JetStar kini telah menjalin kemitraan dengan 25 maskapai, seperti Qantas, Emirates, Srilankan, Finnair, dan Jet Airways, yang menghubungkan penumpang ke hampir semua rute penerbangam di Asia Tenggara dari Singapura.
