The overall investment in the construction of Red Dirt amounts to approximately 420 million US dollars, which is part of the investment outlined in Enel’s current strategic plan, and is financed through the Enel Group’s own resources.
LUKOIL has won a tender for the supply of lubricants to the state-owned Mosgortrans, the largest European public transport operator, in 2017.
The CEO of Wintershall, Mario Mehren, called for a better balance in the energy market in Europe at Norway’s largest energy trade fair, Offshore Northern Seas (ONS), in Stavanger.
The global solar Photovoltaic Balance of System market is set to experience varying levels of decline across a number of regions over the coming years, with the Asia-Pacific region seeing its market depreciate the most, from $27.4 billion in 2015 to $14.2 billion by 2020.
With only one nuclear power plant operating in the continent of Africa, RSA is planning further development of its nuclear power industry. Russia is now making a push into promoting its nuclear technologies in the South African market. The amount involved is $50 bln.
State-of-the-art technologies that had gained momentum for the last ten years by providing a whole new level of oil & gas field management are often called “smart”. EnergyLand.info has tried to sort out in which way “smart fields” differ from traditional ones, how this concept affects the process, and whether it is popular in Russia today.
When developing the Kirinsk field, a technology of subsea gas production was used for the first time in the Russian continental shelf area. Such technology provides for gas transfer from wells directly to the shore without using any above-water structures. It will allow producing hydrocarbons even under the ice and will ensure minimal environmental impact.
Hannover Messe 2014, one of the world’s largest international trade shows for industrial technologies was held in Germany on April 7-11. A journalist at EnergyLand.info Kira Patrakova shares her impression of visiting the exhibition power sector.
Not so long ago, at one of the exhibitions, a display with bright lamps has caught my eye. Were they LED? Halogen? Turned out those were induction lamps. As I was told at the stand, that is an advanced innovation technology which will successfully compete with LEDs in the years to come. Now, that is a doubtful claim. EnergyLand decided to look into the matter.
Lately, power engineers have been setting more challenging requirements to cabling and wiring products. Present-day overhead and underground power cable lines must have higher conductivity without increase in weight and dimensions, and must ensure reliable operation under the most extreme conditions. How to achieve that? State-of-the-art conductive materials come to the rescue.
