A. Soulis Enterprises invests in Liebherr crane

first_imgA. Soulis Enterprises managing director, Andreas Soulis, says: “The LTM 11200-9.1 is precisely the right crane for installations with towers of 80 to 100 metres in height. It is particularly economical for these kinds of operations, and that means we can be particularly competitive too.Equipped with a 100-m telescopic boom, Y-guying system, and fixed jib, the LTM 11200-9.1 can lift up to 94 tonnes to a hook height of 89 m, and up to 76 tonnes to a height of 107 m. If the crane is used with a luffing boom, lifting capacity can be higher still.Soulis says that it is not intending to use the LTM 11200-9.1 in the wind power sector in Greece only, but also on the international market for heavy lift operations.A. Soulis Enterprises Ltd. is one of the biggest crane companies in Greece, and operates 20 mobile cranes with lifting capacities from 20 tonnes to 300 tonnes, 16 of which are Liebherr machines. As well as mobile cranes, the company also operates a large fleet of transport vehicles.last_img read more

DB Cargo keeps on track

first_imgThe first wagon began its journey at the beginning of August, and by mid-September 33 wagons had made the journey to Greece, via the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia and Bulgaria.DB Cargo’s loading consultants had to develop the loading plans for the rail transport, as the superheater coils, which are transported as bundled tubes, came in a range of different sizes up to 3.59 m x 23 m.”However, the dimensions were not the only challenge we faced as part of this project,” Janett Schmidt, customer manager, regional sales north/east in Halle, Germany, at DB Cargo. “The main difficulty was that neither the manufacturer nor the power plant in Greece had sidings of their own.”Upon arrival in Voluyak in Bulgaria, DB Schenker’s logistics experts have carried out onward transport to the power plant by road because trains with wide loads cannot cross the border between Bulgaria and Greece.   A further 30 wagons are expected to be delivered in October.  www.dbcargo.comlast_img read more

On the decks

first_imgEXPANSION joints in concrete and steel bridges in Italy and Portugal have been waterproofed using Sentinel Algaflex TW reinforced elastomer sheet. Sentinel Algaflex TW is designed for use with the supplier’s Eliminator and Hytec bridge deck waterproofing, and it has a continuous upper surface to prevent any ingress of ballast into the joint. Designed specifically for railway applications, it is robust enough for long-term maintenance-free use without any additional protection, and also offers protection against stray electrical currents. The waterproof sheet can accommodate up to 320mm of horizontal and 80mm of vertical movement, enabling bridge bearings to be replaced without the need to remove the expansion joints.

Sen. Win Gatchalian wants review of the Magna Carta for Public School Teachers

first_imgSIGN UP TO DAILY NEWSLETTERCLICK HERE TO SIGN-UP Senator Sherwin Gatchalian has sought an inquiry on the government’s implementation of the Magna Carta for Public School Teachers or Republic Act No. 4670.Senator Sherwin Gatchalian (MANILA BULLETIN FILE PHOTO)Gatchailan said it is imperative to check if the law seeking to improve the living and working conditions of public school teachers are fully implemented.Gatchalian said it has been 50 years since the law was passed but some of its provisions have not been implemented at all, while others are either partially or selectively enforced.For instance, he said the law mandates that public school teachers are entitled to free and compulsory medical examination before they take up teaching but not all public school teachers are entitled to it.The senator said the COVID-19 pandemic has magnified the lack of health benefits for teachers and thus, threatens their health and welfare in the rollout of the government’s distance learning program.“Sa gagawin nating pagsusuri, nais nating matukoy kung paano pa natin mapapaigting ang pagpapatupad ng Magna Carta for Public School Teachers, upang masiguro nating lubos na napapangalagaan ang kapakanan ng mga guro (In conducting a review, we want to identify what mechanism to enforce to ensure that the Magna Carta for Public School Teachers are strictly implemented to ensure the welfare of our teachers),” he stressed.Gatchalian said the law also mandates that public school teachers shall not render more than six hours of actual classroom teaching in a day.He said it is important to check whether public school teachers are entitled to additional compensation if their work exceeds six hours a day and if they accomplish tasks outside their normal duties.The lawmaker also said the law mandates that public school teacher salaries should be comparable with those of other professions where similar educational qualifications and training are required.Yet despite their qualifications and the length of their service in government, Gatchalian lamented that public school teachers lag behind other government professionals, including their armed counterparts.last_img read more

Cricket News Virat Kohli Falls To Adam Zampa For Fifth Time, Bowler Creates Record

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: It is now official. Virat Kohli, the Indian cricket team skipper and the greatest run-making machine of the modern era, is Australia legspinner Adam Zampa’s bunny. After being dismissed in the Mumbai ODI for 16 when he chipped a drive back to the bowler, Kohli fell to some fielding brilliance from Australia as he missed out on the chance to equal Sachin Tendulkar’s record of nine centuries against Australia in ODIs. Kohli was batting on 78 and in the 43rd over, Zampa was getting ready to bowl his final over. Zampa flighted a delivery on off stump and Kohli lofted the drive to long off. However, he did not time the shot well and Ashton Agar settled underneath the catch at long off.Agar, though, was close to the boundary and once he took the catch the momentum was taking him over the ropes. Agar calmly flung the ball back to Mitchell Starc who took the catch. The umpires had a look but Agar’s feet were not touching the ropes and Kohli was given his marching orders. This was the fifth time that Zampa had dismissed Kohli in ODIs and this was the fourth consecutive time he had taken his wicket in ODIs. This dismissal in Rajkot made him a proud owner of a record.In addition to his two Twenty20 International dismissals, Zampa has now dismissed Kohli five times in ODIs whcich makes his tally of seven dismissals in limited-overs cricket the most any bowler has gotten rid of the Indian skipper. The bowler, though, who has gotten rid of him the most times across formats combined is James Anderson with eight, having dismissed him five times in ODIs and three times in ODIs. Nathan Lyon has dismissed Kohli the most in Tests, having gotten his wicket seven times. Ravi Rampaul holds the record for most dismissals in ODIs with six.Mantra For SuccessSpeaking before the second ODI in Rajkot, Zampa was grounded and said with the number of times he has dismissed Kohli, the Indian skipper will be more focused on not getting out in the upcoming matches. “It’s going to be an attacking approach. I think if you’re on the back-foot and have a defensive mindset then that’s when he (Kohli) can get on top of you. The most important thing playing in places like India against these guys is to have a little bit of character. He is a very hard guy to bowl to. He’s one of the toughest guys I’ve ever had to bowl to. After game one (first ODI), he will be even more switched on. It will be a big challenge,” Zampa said.Adam Zampa has dismissed Virat Kohli five times in ODIs and twice in T20Is. (Image credit: Getty Images)Zampa said Australia had managed to find out a certain Achilles heel in the Indian skipper and they would be wanting to target that in every game.Also Read | Kamran Akmal, Pakistan Wicketkeeper Is Better Than Adam Gilchrist – Here Is Statistical Proof”We basically just found that Virat finds leg-spinners hard to line up early in his innings. He’s such a great starter, even the other day he was 16 off 14. How much energy he brought to the crease, his running between the wickets, some of the cover drives he played off the quicks. I think it’s important to try and have a game plan against him. So we figured out before the last game that it would be good to start with leg-spin to him. I’ve got him out four times in the last year or so it’s nice to have that confidence to bowl to him at the start of his innings,” Kohli said.last_img read more
