first_img May 7, 2020 Chairman of CARICOM, Prime Minister of Barbados, Rt. Hon. Freundel Stuart Chairman of CARICOM, Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, has deemed the just-concluded 36th CARICOM Heads of Government Meeting, held in Barbados from July 2 to 4, a success.“Generally speaking, I think we had a successful conference. As I said in my opening address on Thursday evening, there will always be things that the Caribbean Community has not yet been able to do, and there will always be things that we have already done that it can be argued that we can do better. But, in the context of the realities we now face, I am satisfied, and I think the consensus of the conference was, at its close, that we had a successful CARICOM conference,” Mr. Stuart emphasised.

High tech paint booth for Hitachi plant

first_imgUK: The 31 m by 9 m paint spray booth oven built to accommodate rail vehicles at Hitachi Rail’s Newton Aycliffe rolling stock plant has been designed by Junair Spraybooths to optimise running costs while complying with safety requirements. The iSystem touch control is pre-programmed with bake cycles and a list of coatings, ensuring the most efficient cure profile is automatically used and paint jobs are not over-cured or under-cured. This also balances the air pressure within the cabin to ensure compliance with safety regulations. Two Junair pneumatically powered Alfa-Lifts are fitted inside the spray booth to provide access to all areas of a vehicle’s painted surfaces. The controls are inside the cage, with three levers allowing the operator to manoeuvre the platform on three axes to provide the optimal working position.The spray booth has 32 Junair QADs auxiliary air movement towers designed to improve drying times by agitating air during flash-off and cure cycles, with automatic variable speed drives adjusting the airflow to suit the process. The full airflow rate is only required for spraying, and all other activities can be carried out with reduced airflow to lower running costs. The fuel saver mode provides full fresh air intake for paint application, and automatically switches to recirculation when in idle, loading, preparation, flash off and bake modes, thus reducing air heating costs. There are high, mid and low level LED lighting within the booth, and a bespoke paint mix room and ventilated mixing bench were also supplied.last_img read more

Get ready for a low flying plane in the skies over Donegal

first_imgIt’s a case of ‘eyes to the sky’ over West Donegal in the coming weeks as the latest airborne phase of Tellus, a major geological survey of Ireland, gets underway.To gather data, a low-flying plane equipped with state-of-the-art technology will traverse the skies into the autumn months (weather permitting).The aircraft, a white twin propeller plane bearing the registration number C-GSGF, will be based at Sligo airport and survey rural areas at a height of 60m – approximately eight times the height of a standard two storey house, as approved by the Irish Aviation Authority. Dr James Hodgson, Geophysics Programme Manager for Tellus, said “Tellus is an important and exciting project which is helping to unearth significant geological information about Ireland.“By late 2017, we expect to have surveyed 50% of Ireland – with the resulting data helping us to better understand the local environment, soil management and natural resource potential for Mayo. We would also like to thank the local community for their continued support with survey activity.”Tellus is led by Geological Survey Ireland and funded by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE).For more information on Tellus, including weekly flight plans, please visit If you have any concerns about sensitive livestock, please call the Tellus Freephone Information Line on 1800 303 516.
