Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 17 luglio 2019

Ameresco, Inc., (NYSE:AMRC), a leading energy efficiency and renewable energy company, and Hamilton Southeastern Schools today announced a partnership to bring renewable energy to the school district in the form of ground mount solar farms. Two solar arrays comprised of 4,800 panels will power three of the district’s schools. Ameresco has also provided Hamilton Southeastern Schools with two solar wagons and programming to incorporate sustainability education into its curriculum.With construction already underway, Hamilton Southeastern Schools will finance this project with bond fees and operational cost savings generated from the solar arrays. Already the project has generated funds for the construction of a playground at the Riverside Intermediate School and is projected to generate additional funds to build two more in the district.“Our partnership with Ameresco has already allowed us to invest in projects that directly benefit our students and create a more sustainable learning environment at our schools,” said Dr. Allen Bourff, Superintendent of Hamilton Southeastern Schools. “The curriculum Ameresco provided will help our teachers educate their students about the latest innovations in renewable energy technology and the importance of sustainability for the future of our environment.”
The solar panels at Sand Creek Elementary and Intermediate Schools have a projected annual output of 1,492,919 kWh and those at HSE Intermediate and Junior High with another 892,681 kWh. Combined, the arrays will generate enough energy to power 294 homes for a year and help avoid 1,687 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually.

ERI Launches A.I.-Driven Robotic System at Indiana Facility

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 1 maggio 2019

ERI, the nation’s leading fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company, has announced the installation and launch of its groundbreaking A.I.-driven robotic system at its Indiana facility.Following on the heels of ERI’s installation of its A.I. and robotics technology at its Fresno, California headquarters, the company has installed its Super Automated Machine (SAM) sorting robotic technology at its Indiana plant.The robotic system, designed by Colorado-based AMP Robotics, is integrated into ERI’s scrap metal sorting line. SAM separates shredded material such as aluminum, printed circuit boards, yellow brass, capacitors, and copper products into a clean stream, based off a vision system to identify the target material that then sends it to the A.I. (brain) that then determines what action the robot should pick. The picking is done via vacuum system. The robotic system at ERI can achieve about 70 picks per minute in its current configuration. Plus, it processes 10 different streams of shredded material.“With steady growth of 10-15 percent per year, we are always looking for innovative ways to enhance efficiency,” said John Shegerian, ERI’s Co-Founder and Executive Chairman. “Working with our friends at AMP we have developed smart technology that increases our sorting accuracy as our processing volume increases so we can free up our employees to perform ITAD and data wiping services. We are really excited about robots and A.I. and being the first in our industry to incorporate them into the process.” Shegerian added that by the end of 2019, the company will have added robotics and A.I. to its other facilities across the country.

A Sestri Ponente il varo della Fleet Tanker Indiana

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 11 ottobre 2010

E’ stata varata a Genova la nave della Marina indiana INS Shakti presso il cantiere navale Fincantieri di Sestri Ponente. Il nome della nave significa potere o forza. La nave è stata costruita da Fincantieri come da contratto firmato nell’aprile 2008, del valore di circa Euro 300 milioni. Il contratto include due vascelli, il primo dei quali, INS Deepak, disegnato e costruito in Italia, è in uno stadio avanzato di testing prima della consegna alla Marina indiana, prevista per la fine di quest’anno, terminata la fase di collaudo.
La seconda Fleet Tanker, INS Shakti, in costruzione presso il cantiere navale di Sestri Ponente, con l’utilizzo dei più avanzati metodi e concezioni di costruzione, sarà in consegna entro i prossimi 2 anni. I collaudi della INS Shakti sono previsti per il dicembre 2010. La consegna in India è programmata nella metà del 2011.  INS Shakti è stata inaugurata dal Warship Production Superintendent in Italia, mentre venivano recitati inni vedici accompagnati dalla rottura di una noce di cocco da parte della Signora Homai Saha, consorte dell’Ambasciatore Debabrata Saha, ospite d’onore per l’occasione. Come vuole la tradizione italiana, la madrina della nave, Signora Saha, ha rotto sulla prua della nave una beneaugurale bottiglia di champagne. Queste Fleet Tanker saranno le prime navi da guerra costruite da Fincantieri, leader europeo, a solcare acque indiane. Le navi sono a doppio scafo, per garantire maggiore sicurezza contro eventuali perdite di carburante e come previsto dalle norme MARPOL.  (fleet tanker)
