The DemoSATH mooring, anchoring and quick connect solution is defined for the 2 MW turbine which will be tested later this year and which will be the first floating turbine connected to the Spanish grid.

In early May, Maersk Supply Service completed the installation of six mooring lines (composed of hybrid fiber chain and rope lines) and six trailing anchors with Maersk Mariner. The mobilization and loading of the mooring elements and the preparation of the ship were carried out at the wharf of Punta Sollana, in the port of Bilbao (Spain), where the onshore construction of the float is currently underway.

Once loaded, the ship left the Port for the installation site of the BiMEP test area where the connection and installation of the elements took place. Lines will be retrieved from the seabed for plug and play connection to the unit later this year.

“The installation of the SATH mooring lines worked perfectly. In the future, we will use them in all our commercial projects which are currently in the planning stage. The operations have been a great success since the first stage of the design and the execution has been outstanding,” commented Araceli Martínez, Chief Engineering Officer at Saitec Offshore Technologies.

“It’s great to see that the DemoSATH project has completed the next stage of offshore work, with the mooring system now in place – a milestone on our way to installing and commissioning the floating turbine more later this year. As RWE, we see great potential for floating wind farms around the world, especially to unlock opportunities in countries with deeper coastal waters. With DemoSATH, we are gaining experience with a innovative concrete-based platform technology and further expand our expertise in this growing market,” said Chris Willow, Head of Floating Wind Development at RWE Renewables.

“With the completion of the installation of the mooring system, the DemoSATH project is ready for the installation of the foundation later this year. We had good collaboration throughout the process – both in the phase planning and execution. The commitment of key stakeholders, from the developer to the float manufacturer, was instrumental in the successful completion. With this project, we hope to contribute to the development and maturation of the floating wind industry,” said Yvan Leyni, director of floating wind at Maersk Supply Service.

Meanwhile, onshore construction of the prestressed concrete floating platform continues at the Port of Bilbao. Work on the transition piece, the single point mooring and the landing stage are also carried out as well as installation work inside the floats. This will be followed by the launching operation of the platform, which will then be transported to its final deployment site at BIMEP.

The DemoSATH signifies a stepping stone in the commercialization roadmap of the SATH technology. The 2 MW unit will be tested under actual offshore operating conditions in a harsh Atlantic environment. The BiMEP facilities test field is located 2 miles off the coast of Biscay, where the sea is 85 meters deep. DemoSATH will generate enough electricity to cover the energy demand of more than 2,000 local homes.

This project aims to collect data and acquire real knowledge about the construction procedure, operation and maintenance of the DemoSATH floating wind platform for a period of 2 years.

]]> Invoking Black Struggle for Justice in Installation Opens May 14 at Oakland City Hall Sat, 14 May 2022 20:43:53 +0000

By Randolph Belle

A traveling exhibit that chronicles the history of black repression in the United States has arrived in Oakland for installation this week at Frank Ogawa Plaza.

Support Oakland Artists, an Oakland-based 501(C)3, in partnership with Society’s Cage to present the acclaimed social justice art installation in front of Oakland City Hall May 9-30, 2022.

Society’s Cage is an accessible open-air pavilion comprising 500 suspended steel bars that form a cavernous cube with a habitable void allowing visitors to experience the symbolic weight of institutional racism.

This immersive experience offers the opportunity to consider the severity of racial bias within our institutional justice structures and allows for moments of reflection and healing.

The designers, Dayton Schroeter, Julian Arrington, Monteil Crawley and Ivan O’Garro, created the installation to contextualize the contemporary phenomenon of police killings of Black Americans within the continuum of more than 400 years of racialized state violence in the United States. United.

It is a data-driven installation, shaped in response to the question “What is the value of black life in America?” »

The Oakland installation will be the first on the West Coast as it moves nationwide to sites of symbolic power tied to justice, freedom and democracy. Originating in Washington, D.C. on the National Mall in response to the 2020 killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, Society’s Cage continued its journey as an interpretive lens highlighting historical forces of racialized state violence in the states. -United.

Other sites have included War Memorial Plaza in Baltimore, Maryland, and the Vernon AME Chapel site in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre and the destruction of the Greenwood District, known as the Black Wall Street.

Oakland is an ideal site for settling as the home of the Black Panther Party, which was founded to fight the legacy of police oppression, unfair incarceration practices and remnants of slavery. in the form of state-sponsored terrorism against black people.

In 2009, the killing of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old unarmed black passenger by BART police in Oakland, sparked organized local and regional protests that catalyzed a national movement.

“We were inspired to create the installation in response to the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor,” says Dayton Schroeter, principal designer of Society’s Cage and director of design at SmithGroup, which has offices in San Francisco. “The pavilion is a real and raw reflection of the conversations about racism that are taking place right now. It is a physical manifestation of the institutional structures that have undermined the progress of black Americans throughout this country’s history.

“The name Society’s Cage refers to societal constraints that limit the prosperity of the black community,” says Julian Arrington, who led the design with Schroeter and is a partner at SmithGroup. “The pavilion creates an experience to help visitors understand and recognize these impacts of racism and be inspired to create change.”

“It only took me a moment to commit to this project,” said Randolph Belle, executive director of Support Oakland Artists. “In my more than 30 years in Oakland as an artist and community developer, I have strived to use the arts to thoughtfully engage audiences around important, timely topics. This project, this site and these times are an unprecedented example.

Visitors are encouraged to participate in a shared experience upon entering the pavilion. After holding their breath for as long as they can, evoking the common plea of ​​victims of police killings, “I can’t breathe”, visitors then post a video reflecting their experience on social media using the hashtag #SocietysCage. This exercise aims not only to create empathy, but also to extend the impact of the online installation to allow anyone to participate in this shared exercise.

The pavilion was manufactured by Gronning Design + Manufacturing LLC in Washington, DC, and Mejia Ironworks in Hyattsville, Maryland. A soundscape was commissioned from a composer duo, Raney Antoine Jr. and Lovell “UP” Cooper.

Comprised of four pieces, each lasting eight minutes and 46 seconds in recognition of the time George Floyd endured under the knee of the police, they are themed to reflect each of the four institutional forces that have sculpted the interior of the flag – mass incarceration, police terrorism, capital punishment and racist lynchings.

Early sponsors who have made hosting the company’s Cage Oakland facility possible include the Akonadi Foundation, the Tarbell Family Foundation, individual sponsors including directors of SmithGroup’s San Francisco office, corporate sponsorships, including SmithGroup, and many community partners, including BIG Oakland.

Jeremy Crandall and Emax Exhibits formed the Oakland installation team.

A public unveiling is scheduled for Saturday, May 14, 2022 at 11 a.m., and a scheduled event featuring local cultural artists is scheduled for Sunday, May 29, 2022 at 7 p.m. Participating individuals and organizations include original members of the Black Panther Party, the Black Cultural Zone, HipHopTV, and a host of local artists.

Miniature Tin Man Art Installation Funding: Randy Glysch Raised $35,000 for Privately Funded Project | Community Fri, 13 May 2022 05:52:00 +0000

While village president Randy Glysch recently launched and announced his plans for a public art program around Oregon after receiving two grants, a project has been in the works for two years.

An 18-foot sculpture replica of the Tin Man is being planned, with the intention of being placed at the corner of Park and Janesville streets.

About two years ago, Glysch struck up conversations with Gail Simpson and Aristotle Georgiades of Actual Size Artworks.

Actual Size Artworks is a collaboration between the two sculpting artists, and the duo create large-scale public art projects.

They both live in Stoughton and earned their MFAs from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. They both teach art at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The duo have always admired the downtown Tin Man water tower and wanted to create a sculpture of the landmark as public art, Glysch told the Observer.

The water tower and a pumphouse to operate it were built in 1899. Initially the tower was a 15,000 gallon wooden drum, but in 1921 it was replaced with a 30,000 gallon steel drum gallons, which locals dubbed “The Tin Man”.

The water tower is 100 feet tall and has four steel legs supporting the steel water tank. Its nickname comes from the fact that it was designed in the “classic tin man” style, which was once a common form of water tank design, first introduced in 1894.

The water tower and pumping station were decommissioned in 1981 and the public works department used the brick building as storage.

In 2007, an initiative of village residents placed both structures on the State and National Historic Registers.

Glysch has his own attachment to the Oregon Skyline Monument – ​​when he moved to the village in 2013, Glysch became a member of the Oregon Historic Preservation Commission.

A neighbor approached him to help with landscaping around the building to improve its appearance, as Glysch is a master gardener.

It was then that Glysch learned that there had been several attempts over the years to restore and remodel the interior of the two-room building, which was damp and in disrepair.

He was able to help raise $80,000 in donations for the project, and in May 2015 the renovated building opened as the Oregon Visitor Center.

The cool, shiny brick building then cast its eyes towards the rusty, worn steel water tower.

The village provided $88,000 for its restoration, while an additional $30,000 was raised through private donations.

It received a new coat of paint, a new weather vane and was illuminated for the first time.

The project was completed in June 2017.

Now Glysch is working on the logistics to bring an 18ft replica of the 100ft tower to the corner of Park Street and Janesville Street.

He was able to raise $35,000 privately for the project, which is now in the planning stage.

The miniature Tin Man will be lit at night and say “Welcome to Oregon” on it.

Searl Electric and Alliant Energy are also project partners.

The proposed public art installation still has to go through all village approval processes, Glysch said.

Generac certified Veteran Electric to perform generator installation and repair Sat, 07 May 2022 18:57:13 +0000

Veteran Electric Inc, is a leader in backup power for residential and commercial use. The power company is pleased to announce that Generac has certified Veteran Electric Inc to install and repair emergency generator services in the southern part of Texas. Generators are the perfect solution for residents who want peace of mind knowing their home or business will have power. When residents need power, turn off the enclosure. There’s no better way to keep family members or employees safe than with a reliable generator from one of the top-rated brands on the market today.

How to choose the right standby generator?

A Generac standby generator is a perfect product for individuals, families, businesses, and organizations that want to stay safe in the event of a power outage. Generac whole house generator installers can be a lifesaver when the generator has been installed. During extreme weather events like hurricanes or storms, a generator will provide electricity to your home for a few days. It only takes one big storm to experience a prolonged and inconvenient power outage near Houston, Texas, for example.

Selecting the right size plays a crucial role in maintaining structural electricity. When people need to select generators, Generac is king. The largest manufacturer in North America produces a wide range of generators for all kinds of uses.

Typically, homeowners can run the most critical household equipment with a generator rated at 5,000 to 7,500 watts. These power levels can support the operation of fresh water well pumps, kitchen appliances and lighting circuits.

When selecting a generator, it is best to buy one that is slightly larger than the estimated demand. Extra power is essential for generators because running a generator at full capacity can significantly reduce generator life.

Local Veteran Electric Inc electricians can install Generac back-up generators outside the home to ensure there is no loss of power access during severe weather events such as hurricanes, tornadoes or other adverse weather conditions. In the event of a power outage, a Generac standby generator provides power until the system is restored.

Generac Whole House Backup Generator Vs. Portable Generators

Generac is the market leader in whole-home standby generators. The products are installed directly into a home’s power supply allowing homes to access electricity after a grid outage which is common during or after a disaster. On the other hand, portable generators must be connected to an outside power source like an outlet or a fuel tank.

While portable generators can be useful during short-term or intermittent power outages, they lack the firepower to keep an entire home or building online for an extended period of time.

In many cases, portable generators help maintain critical power for essential appliances and lighting. Although this is better than having no electricity at all, it is quite limited.

A portable generator can also overload when plugged into a home’s electrical panel. A generator or power source failure could start a fire and burn down a house in seconds. The safest option for those who want backup electricity during power outages is to install a Generac Whole House Standby Generator.

Incentives and discounts available

South Texas residents and property owners who are considering installing a Generac standby generator may receive incentives from the Texas Empowerment Zone and the Qualified Municipality Incentive Program. The program offers tax credits, rebates and grants to those who want to enjoy the benefits of a stable backup power source that keeps the lights on in homes and businesses throughout South Texas.

Protect the vulnerable

Electricity is a service that many take for granted. But for some, like those who use oxygen or other types of critical medical equipment, electricity is a lifeline. In the event of a power outage, people with special medical needs can quickly find themselves in difficulty until the network comes back online.

Generac Standby Generator Operation with Automatic Transfer Switches

A whole house generator from Generac integrates into an automatic transfer switch (ATS) system. When installed, a whole-house standby generator functions as a backup power source during grid outages.

When the power goes out, the home ATS detects this event. This active sensor allows electricity transfer from the utility company to pass through a secure connection while simultaneously sending electricity from the ATS to the backup generator in a separate line.

Generac Standby Generator Installation Services in South Texas

When looking for a company that can provide Genera standby generator installation services. Generator repair services or any other type of service required to protect a home or business from power outages, look no further than Veteran Electric Inc.

When it comes to installing a whole house standby generator, Veteran Electric Inc has the right tools and trained technicians to get the job done quickly and efficiently. A whole house backup power solution includes the installation of an external transfer switch, battery bank monitor, battery bank, indoor load center with circuit breakers and circuit breakers. a neutral bus bar, as well as an external disconnector.

Kids Around the World celebrates its 1,000th playground.

ROCKFORD, Ill., May 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kids Around the World, a non-profit organization whose mission is to engage children in poor global communities through the installation of commercial playground equipment refurbished, today announced the completion of its 1,000and build, a playground in Portoviejo, Ecuador.

Kids Around the World has for nearly three decades sought out commercial playgrounds that needed removal in the United States, renovated them, shipped them overseas, and relocated them to impoverished communities. Supported by partner Little Tikes Commercial, which designs and manufactures innovative, commercial-grade play equipment for children of all ages and abilities, Kids Around the World marked the 1,000and build a milestone by installing a playground at Parque Forestal in Portoviejo.

A grand opening ceremony on April 29 in Portoviejo drew hundreds of people, including the governor of the province of Manabí, Juan Francisco Núñez Herrera, several dignitaries from Portoviejo and members of the Kids Around the World and Little Tikes Commercial who came from the United States for the event.

“These 1,000 playgrounds are the source of millions of moments of joy for the world’s underserved children, and we are proud to have had such an impact over nearly three decades of work,” said Jeff Rosene. , Executive Vice President of Kids Around the World. “As we celebrate this day and thank our many partners, we look forward to the next 1,000 installations and our continued efforts to support the physical, emotional, spiritual and cognitive development of children.

When a customer purchases one of these play sets, Little Tikes Commercial donates 5% of the list price to Kids Around the World, while offering customers a 25% discount off that list price. Customers can also enroll in the program while creating their own designs. It typically takes about four playground purchases to fund a worldwide installation of a remodeled playground.

“Partnering with Kids Around the World to give play equipment a second life – and kids a better life – is what we do,” said Brett Kidd, Vice President of Sales, Little Tikes Commercial. . “Playgrounds are community anchors, especially where there is little other infrastructure. We couldn’t be more proud to celebrate this milestone with Kids Around the World and champion the continued growth of this vital program.

Rockford, Illinois-based Kids Around the World’s first build in 1994 was in Rockford’s sister city of Brovary, Ukraine, just outside of Kyiv. “Whether it’s Brovary, Ukraine, or Portoviejo, Ecuador, or any community on Earth, children deserve to play safely and joyfully,” Rosene said. “Our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine and especially their children, and we hope that every child who visits one of our playgrounds knows they are seen and supported, and that these donations are specifically for them.”

In March, Kids Around the World created the “Brovary Fundto help support the children and families of Brovary during the war in Ukraine. Its mission also includes OneMeal, which has provided 38.8 million meals in 20 different countries since its inception.
