first_img“Our dedication in renewable energy has brought us on a path of continuous innovation and many satisfied customers around the world.” Great advancements have been made in the offshore wind tower industry ever since it was first installed in Denmark in the early 90’s, an essential development due to the growing global demand for renewable energy which keeps increasing every year as governments are channeling investments to decrease carbon emission. This year alone, 15GW of new offshore wind capacity is expected to be added in the global offshore wind energy. We understand that maintenance down time or unexpected errors may occur during the manufacturing process; that is why, in order to provide a fast and professional service to all our customers around the world, we have incorporated a special function in our Faccin CNC controlled machines called RSM (Remote service management) securely connected to the FACCIN Cloud Service. FACCIN has always been attentive to customer’s requirements, it is not a coincidence that we were the first supplier to offer a CNC controlled plate rolling machine in 1984. Faccin Offshore Hydrogen “Our aim is to help today’s manufacture face tomorrow’s challenges.” FACCIN has been entrusted with countless projects by providing high performing machines to roll foundation and wind tower components, giving the most complete solution on the market for bending the industry’s heaviest structures. W2H2 projects are gargantuan investments that involve many industries working together, from dished heads of pressure vessels to ship frame benders making ships to transport gas onshore. At the threshold of Offshore wind energy is the transformation of wind energy into green hydrogen at an industrial scale. Through the process of electrolysis, water is split into oxygen and hydrogen which can then be used to power engines, gas turbines and fuel cells, not to mention it can also replace the use of CO2-neutral as a reducing agent in steel fabrication. Hydrogen produced via electrolysis can result in zero greenhouse gas emissions and criteria pollutant emissions. It is estimated that a 4GW wind farm can produce enough hydrogen to power 1.4million homes and it has also a very high potential of competing with diesel fuel. FACCIN’s single-operator wind tower integrated automation system is designed to maximize the productivity of rolled cans manufacturers by guaranteeing reliability, precision and a fast rolling cycle. The system also combines essential components such a robust top support, sturdy side support and self-aligning feeding table, all controlled by a state-of-the-art CNC, enhanced by our long experience in this technology and designed to guarantee our customers’ profitability. The advantage this brings to wind farms is that hydrogen fuel and electric power generation could be integrated, thus allowing flexibility to shift production to best match resource availability with system operational needs and market factors. Also, in times of excess electricity production from wind farms, instead of curtailing the electricity as is commonly done, it is possible to use this excess electricity to produce hydrogen through electrolysis. The floating wind-to-hydrogen turbines would be completely independent of the power grid – a major contributor to cost reduction. Forming Today’s Futurecenter_img As the offshore competition is growing in expanding new markets, the balance between productivity and profitability has never been so aligned with being competitive in the market of renewable energy. Tailor made cost-effective Solutions By: Mr Virginio Paratico – Area Sales Manager – FACCIN S.p.A It allows the end user to receive immediate assistance directly from our customer service department using live video feed and an easy to use interface so that real-time assistance is provided whenever needed.

first_imgON-TRACK CROWD OF 14,285 ON HAND AT GREAT RACE PLACE – ARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 6, 2016)–French-bred Flamboyant is suddenly the “now” horse in California’s marathon turf division as he rallied from off the pace to win Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 San Marcos Stakes by three quarters of a length while negotiating 1 ¼ miles on turf in 2:01.58. Ridden by Brice Blanc and trained by Paddy Gallagher, he was again impressive as he followed up on his neck victory in Santa Anita’s Grade II, 1 1/8 miles turf San Gabriel Stakes on Jan. 2.“I don’t know if the French connection helps, but I’ll run with it,” said Blanc, himself a native Frenchman. “He’s doing really well in the mornings…I don’t know about better, but (he’s doing) as well as he was doing before the San Gabriel.“I wasn’t worried about the mile and a quarter, the distance is fine for him. I was just hoping for a good trip and that’s pretty much what happened. I had a great trip. He gave me his best like he always has since I’ve been with him (dating back to a third place finish, beaten a nose here on Oct. 22).”The narrow second choice in the wagering at 5-2, Flamboyant paid $7.60, $3.60 and $2.80.A 5-year-old gelding, Flamboyant is owned by CHRB Chairman Chuck Winner and David Bienstock. In getting his fifth win from 19 starts, Flamboyant picked up $120,000 for the win, increasing his earnings to $518,368.“The first quarter mile was quick enough for him,” said Gallagher in reference to Flamboyant’s come-from-behind style. “Down the backside, Brice got him into an even better spot and by the three eighths pole, he was in a perfect spot and he was good enough to get there.”Grey in color, Uruguayan-bred Gaga A cut an impressive figure as he skimmed the rail turning for home as he wrested the lead from pacesetter Hay Dude, but couldn’t hold off the late charge of the winner inside the sixteenth pole. Off at 16-1 with Mario Gutierrez, Gaga A finished three quarters of a length in front of Quick Casablanca and paid $12.60 and $7.80.Ridden by Tyler Baze for Ron McAnally, Quick Casablanca finished well to be third, one length in front of Class Leader. Off at 45-1, Quick Casablanca paid $12.40 to show.Fractions on the race were 23.72, 47.50, 1:12.23 and 1:37.22.last_img read more

first_imgSignificant spin-offs This programme was initiated a few years ago and is already successfully established, using the framework of a hub-and-spoke collaboration philosophy, at several South African universities. SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material The new LECO Pegasus 4 GCxGC-TOFMS – a comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatograph combined with a time-of-flight mass spectrometer – has been commissioned at the university to gain better insight into the influence of trace components in synthetic diesel, and the application of such fuels in engines, turbines, and other devices. The initiative forms part of Sasol’s university collaboration initiative, a long-term programme that supports the core objectives of world-class teaching and research capacity in chemistry and chemical engineering at selected South African universities. 25 May 2010 The LECO Pegasus 4 GCxGC-TOFMS will enable scientists to make much more detailed analyses of how the more than 100 compounds that make up synthetic diesel fuel contribute to the likes of performance, viscosity, and lubricity of these fuels – an area of research known as tribology.center_img University collaboration initiative Although primarily designed to protect Sasol’s competitive advantage of doing R&D within the country, the programme will also have significant spin-offs benefiting South Africa in general. “With the rapid changes in engine technologies globally, it is important to fully characterise the composition of these fuels in order to exploit their unique benefits,” Sasol said. Research collaboration between Sasol and the University of Pretoria’s department of chemistry and chemical engineering has led to the commissioning of high-tech equipment to gain better insights into the properties and performance of synthetic diesel fuels. “The acquisition of this expensive equipment was made possible by financial support from Sasol Technology through joint research interest in the chemistry that underpins the physical properties of diesel fuels,” Sasol in a statement last week.last_img read more

first_imgTags:#analytics#api#data scraping#Pinterest A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Related Posts Want to make an app that works on top of Pinterest? Be prepared for some hard work. Developers who want to make their apps work with Twitter or Facebook can do so easily, since both companies have long offered tools for just that purpose. Meanwhile, Pinterest has been promising its long-awaited public API since March 2012—with nothing to show for it so far. See also:Pinterest Developers, After Years Of Waiting, Can Take HopeAn API, or application programming interface, is a set of rules that permit software programs or service to talk to other programs or services. They’re essential tools for developers who want to build apps on top of social media quickly and efficiently. An API would allow developers to build apps that work on top of the Pinterest platform, the way TweetDeck works on top of Twitter or Missing E works on Tumblr.Building such tools on Pinterest is obviously a lot harder without a public API. And that presents a bigger problem for business than for casual users. Most consumer apps simply add more features to an existing service, whereas apps for businesses provide tools that they can’t live without. For many companies, there’s no reason to have a social media presence if there’s no way to count their fans and track what they’re doing.So while many developers can just sit back and wait for a public API to be released, those cater to business analytics have had to jerry-rig solutions of their own. And businesses pay good money for these tools, because, well, they basically don’t have any other choice if they want the data.Re-Inventing The WheelWithout an API, developers can try to simply scrape data from a service—generally by using programs that crawl a social network and index what they find for developers to analyze. Over the several years of waiting for Pinterest to provide an API, developers who want to provide Pinterest analytics to businesses or brands have been forced to do just that. Data scraping is generally considered a last resort. While an API allows analytics trackers to collect data in real time, scraping is slower, vulnerable to countermeasures and prone to unexpected error. So even the most sophisticated apps built on scraped data have accuracy problems, and many of the early players in Pinterest app development have phased out their efforts or closed down entirely. The few key players that remain have had to evolve their tactics.Here’s how two of the largest Pinterest analytics trackers, Curalate and PinLeague, have managed to keep enterprise customers happy with homespun solutions in place of a public API. (Neither Curalate nor PinLeague would tell me exactly how they scrape data from Pinterest; since there’s no standard API their techniques are trade secrets.)CuralateThis marketing and analytics suite works with more than 300 brands like Saks Fifth Avenue and the Gap. Customers pay big money to use Curalate’s tools, on average between $1,000 and $5,000 per month.What they’re paying for is a solution to tracking Pinterest traffic that has nothing to do with scraping textual data. Instead, explained CEO and co-founder Apu Gupta, Curalate uses something it calls “pixel recognition”:Descriptions change, URLs get modified, and other metadata gets erased. But the image remains relatively constant. So what we do is memorize the images themselves in what amounts to a giant game of memory. We scan every pixel of every image we encounter—nearly 40-50 million images daily—and check to see if we’ve ever seen that image before. If we have, we know what brand that image belongs to and we can increment the brand’s analytics accordingly.Gupta often finds that the data his customers initially ask him to track isn’t what truly measures success on Pinterest’s visual platform. “Most people pinning Gap products have nothing to do with what the Gap is pushing out on its Pinterest profile,” he said. “The majority of Gap products on Pinterest come from users pinning them from external sites to their own boards.”PinLeagueOffering a free trial and monthly analytics beginning at just $29 a month, PinLeague is Curalate’s more economy-minded cousin, targeting small businesses as well as enterprises. The company tracks analytics for more than 2,000 brands, including Target and Nike. Beyond its audience and price, it’s difficult to compare to Curalate or its other competitors. That’s because each one company has chosen to track a unique set of metrics. According to CEO and co-founder Danny Maloney, PinLeague offers its customers different metrics mixes, depending on their needs:Brands have their own theories on what important metrics are. Some brands want to grow their audience. Others want to cultivate smaller, closer audience. Others want to run a contest and generate headlines with it, while still others want to make revenue and see conversions from this platform.If 2012 was the frontier of Pinterest analytics, said Maloney, then 2013 is the Wild West. Only a handful of analytics vendors remain, and they’ve all scattered in different directions. Perhaps that’s because, without an API to dictate which metrics Pinterest itself believes ought to be tracked to measure success, PinLeague’s success relies on its being able to track the metrics customers ask them to track. That will all change when Pinterest releases its API, but Maloney claims not to be worried.“If and when Pinterest does release an API, it’s frankly going to make the entire field move faster and help third party developers do what’s hard or impossible to do right now,” he said. Now that it’s no longer a question of “if,” it’s entirely possible that the days of PinLeague and Curalate are numbered. They’ve each cornered a chunk of the market by managing to develop adequately reliable analytics without an API. An API could help developers accomplish much the same thing with much less effort (and quite likely at a lower cost, too).But first, Pinterest has to actually put its API where its mouth is.
