Hareket handles Turakurgan delivery

first_imgIn total, Hareket transported 7,408 tonnes of cargo, made up of 42 items of equipment including a gas turbine, steam turbine, generator, transformer and a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG), to the new plant, which is located in Nemengan province, 280 km east of Uzbekistan’s capital city, Tashkent. The heaviest unit was a 255-tonne transformer.There were significant challenges to the overland transport, which required cooperation from the Uzbekistan General Directorate of Highways. One of the challenges required Hareket to by-pass a direct route to the power plant via the Kamchik Tunnel due to its height restrictions.According to Hareket, the transport operation from the Kamchik Pass is the first heavy-duty operation in this region.Meanwhile, Hareket has also been working on the Cameroon Douala Japoma Stadium project, which is being built by Yenigün Construction and will be used during the Africa Cup of Nations football championship.At the project site, Hareket has been responsible for lifting steel materials, which have been shipped to Cameroon from Turkey. To lift the components, which vary in weights, Hareket has deployed mobile cranes with lifting capacities ranging from from 35 to 400 tonnes.The works, which started in February 2018, are planned to be completed by March 2019.www.hareket.comwww.yenigun.comlast_img read more

PII prescription from Society?

first_img Ronnie Fox, principal, Fox Solicitors, London EC3 The 8 April Gazette contains the president’s invitation to submit suggestions as to how the Law Society could help solicitors. Here is mine. In the same issue the Gazette reports that more law firms are ignoring Law Society warnings about the dangers of taking out professional indemnity insurance (PII) policies with unrated insurers. The chief executive of the Society says that firms should consider the financial security of insurers. The fact is that few law firms are equipped to make a meaningful assessment of this kind. Solicitors are required to take out PII with a qualifying insurer – that is, an insurer which has entered into an agreement in such terms as the Law Society may prescribe. In my view the Society should take responsibility for assessing the financial strength of insurers and prescribe appropriate terms accordingly. The result would be to eliminate a source of worry for 10,000 firms of solicitors. last_img read more

Guyana looking to establish gold refinery

first_img Share BusinessNewsRegional Guyana looking to establish gold refinery by: – April 16, 2018 Sharing is caring! Share GEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC) — Guyana says it is considering the establishment of a refinery as part of the efforts to modernise the gold industry.Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman, said that representatives of a South African company will be in Guyana shortly, to conduct a feasibility study on the possibility of establishing the refinery.Trotman said that for years, the Guyana Gold Board (GGB) has been using the old method of refining gold and believes that the time has come to revolutionise the gold industry.“So, we are strongly looking at the possibility setting up a refinery, either through a public-private partnership or wholly through government.”He said that the visit of the team from South America is being facilitated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and that the GGB is already in receipt of a number of other plans for the refinery’s establishment.“We had looked at similar facilities in Suriname. We have received proposals from local business persons as well as far as Dubai, India, the US and Canada, so we are moving in the direction of modernising this industry,” Trotman said, adding that the time has come for the country to have its own refinery.He said that even if Guyana cannot refine all of its gold; it must be in a position to refine a substantial amount.Trotman said the GGB is also exploring the idea of producing commemorative coins and ingots which will be up for sale, “people could come and buy Guyanese gold as a Guyanese or if you are a citizen of Canada or the United States. It comes with a certificate and I believe this is where we are headed.”For several years, Guyana has used the traditional method of smelting gold. This has, however becoming worrying. Only recently there was a spike in the level of mercury emission in the air at the GGB laboratory.center_img Share Tweet 28 Views   no discussionslast_img read more

Nasa Hataoka’s final-day 65 not enough as Hannah Green wins Women’s PGA Championship

first_imgGreen’s even-par final round was just enough to secure the 22-year-old her first major and first LPGA title at 9-under, one shot in front of South Korea’s defending champion Park Sung Hyun.“I’m glad I was finally able to play my brand of golf,” Hataoka said after sinking a 10-meter birdie on her final hole.“My body and my swing were in good shape throughout the round, and I put my heart into an all-out attack. (From here on) I want to work on being able to make adjustments right away.”The three-time LPGA Tour winner is still looking to become the second Japanese to win a major after Hisako Higuchi, who won the LPGA Championship in 1977.After falling to 5-over on Saturday, Hataoka did not bother with the driving range, preferring instead to head to the nearby Mall of America to scream out her frustrations on the giant shopping mall’s rollercoasters.“I just let everything out,” she said.Though out of the hunt for the tournament title, the scream therapy apparently worked.Starting on the back nine due to expected inclement weather, the young Japanese birdied her second hole and then five of nine from the 15th onward to scrape her way into over $50,000 in prize money.Behind Green and Park, England’s Mel Reid closed with a 66 to snag third alongside American Nelly Korda at 6-under. Sakura Yokomine finished 60th at 7-over, failing to break par on any of the four days.
