The chilled water being simply too warm, the climate control units in Emirates Grand Hotel in Dubai could not regulate temperatures to the desired levels. Additionally, the pumps always ran at full speed. This was a situation the hotel wanted to eliminate since guest rooms were not at the desired temperatures and power consumption was too high.
The Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, an independent, research-driven graduate-level university focused on advanced energy and sustainable technologies, has unveiled a new prototype defect detection system designed for aerospace structures that uses a non-destructive testing (NDT) approach and ensures faster more efficient inspection rate
Hypertherm, a manufacturer of plasma, laser, and waterjet cutting systems, has announced the expansion of its patented True Hole technology to include more thickness, amperage and consumable options. For the first time, customers can use the True Hole process to cut 8 mm mild steel at 80 amps, in addition to the existing 130 amp power level.
Cometto, since the early 1950s, has been leading the way in the world of heavy haulage, manufacturing road semitrailers, modular heavy trailers, self-propelled modular trailers (SPMT) and transporters.
Siemens is developing a gas-insulated transmission line for carrying large amounts of energy at high DC voltages.
Siemens and Statoil have jointly developed and qualified a subsea hydraulic power unit for use in offshore oil and gas fields in order to provide hydraulic power right at the well site. The Subsea Hydraulic Power Unit (SHPU) supplies low pressure and high pressure control fluid to the subsea control modules.
The liquid-cooled Sinamics S120 cabinet modules frequency converter from Siemens is a converter for use in harsh ambient conditions. Efficient heat dissipation means there is no need for air conditioning, which markedly reduces energy consumption. Both optimised layout and effective cooling have helped to reduce the module’s footprint.
The Siemens SWT-2.3-120, which premiered at AWEA Windpower 2015 in Orlando, Florida, US, is the first wind turbine designed by Siemens to specifically meet the demands of its North and South American customers. The powerful new turbine features a 120-meter rotor, enabling it to achieve an industry-leading capacity factor.
