Simulcast is off-track betting where you can bet on races in other areas that are broadcast or not broadcast.A location for the races and wagering has not been chosen at this time.center_img Voters in Port Neches voted to reduce the economic development corporation’s sales tax from one-half of 1% to one-quarter of 1% and reallocating the other one-quarter to provide revenue for maintenance and repair of city streets.Port Neches Economic Development Corporation, which was formed in 2000, receives one half of 1 percent of sales tax. As a result the PNEDC collects about $450,000 per year that goes to a variety of economic development incentives and projects.With the approval of the Proposition, the funding should now provide an additional $200,000 to $250,000 beyond what the city currently budgets for the street repair and maintenance.Proceeds from sales tax will not be collected until March and the first rebate from that won’t be received by the city until June 2020.last_img read more

ABB targets battery traction applications

first_imgBordline ESS uses a modular concept to maximise standardisation at subsystem level while allowing easy scalability of both voltage and installed capacity. The equipment can be installed within an engine compartment, on the roof or under the floor.Centrepiece of energy storage system is the Bordline BPW battery module, which incorporates high power prismatic Li-ion cells using a Lithium Titanium Oxide anode. According to ABB, the characteristics of the LTO cell ‘fit very well with the demanding requirements of rail applications’, in particular the fast charge capability, low temperature performance and charge/discharge efficiency.Semi-automated production#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*# Recognising the growing pressure to decarbonise the transport sector, ABB has decided to expand its traction offering with a high-performance energy storage system for rail, road and off-road applications. This move into battery traction is designed to build on ABB’s core competence in the field of electric traction, where it supplies many of the converters used to feed traction motors.ABB has already received orders for its energy storage systems from vehicle manufacturers in several countries. Within Switzerland, they are to be used in new trolleybuses for Zürich, Lausanne and Fribourg. Bordline ESS has also been offered to Stadler as part of the project to modify 51 GTW diesel multiple-units used by Arriva Nederland. These diesel-electric units use ABB’s Bordline CC750 DE traction converters, which will be modified as part of the conversion to diesel-battery operation.#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*# Traction equipment supplier ABB has inaugurated a battery production facility in Switzerland to support decarbonisation initiatives. Hans Weigum reports from Baden.,#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*#center_img ‘With our production facility for energy storage systems here in Baden, we are expanding our technology and market leadership in the area of sustainable mobility’, said Robert Itschner, CEO of ABB Switzerland, at the opening ceremony. ‘We are now able to supply the entire drive train including energy storage solutions for rail, e-bus, trolleybus and e-truck applications from a single source.’Assembly of the batteries takes place in a new production facility within ABB’s main plant at Baden, Switzerland, which was formally opened on October 31. Here the individual cells manufactured by an external supplier in Asia are assembled to create standard modules, which are then used to assemble the custom-designed storage packs for different vehicle types.The battery modules are produced in a semi-automated production line; robots pick and place the components, as well as undertaking welding and quality checks. The cells are laser welded, both to minimise the heat input, and to ensure precision and high repetition accuracy. The aim is to ensure a stable electrical connection with a low contact resistance and minimal degradation over time.According to ABB, the use of high quality cells should allow the batteries to last for about 10 years’ operation within a vehicle with minimum attention. Once the storage capacity has degraded to a certain level, the modules could then be reused for another 10 to 20 years for static energy storage in buildings, perhaps to balance the grid supply as cover for unpredictable solar or wind power or to store energy at off-peak times to reduce consumption during high tariff periods.Emphasising that the performance, life and safety of batteries are highly dependent on the temperature at which they are operated and stored, ABB has incorporated a thermal management system into the Bordline BPW battery modules. These are liquid cooled, using a patented concept, which the company believes offers a better thermal performance than forced air convection.ABB’s assembly facility includes precautions against the cells igniting due to electrical overload or mechanical damage, and special attention to prevent a fire from spreading within the batteries. This suggests that the risk is not negligible once the batteries have been installed on a vehicle, even with high quality batteries specially designed for the purpose.last_img read more

Ronald Charles nominated as UWP candidate

first_img Sharing is caring! LocalNews Ronald Charles nominated as UWP candidate by: – December 9, 2013 Share Tweet Ronald Charles (file photo)Ronald Charles, an attorney at law, has been nominated to contest the next general election on the opposition United Workers Party ticket in the Roseau Valley.Charles, who was admitted to the Dominica Bar in 2011, joins his colleague Joshua Francis who was earlier confirmed to contest the Roseau South constituency for the UWP.He was nominated by the constituents of the Roseau Valley at a meeting on Sunday evening (December 8).“Let me first say thanks to the supporters and constituents and that is from the Valley for nominating me,” Charles said in an interview on Q95FM on Monday, December 9, 2013.According to Charles, there “were quite a number of persons vying to be the chosen one put it this way for the United Workers Party”, at one time the nomination was as high as about seven persons and it finally came down to two nominees.Although he emerged top of the polls last evening, “there is more to be done in terms of the executive endorsing that nomination and there are a few checks and balances that would have to be done prior to any further declaration”.Nonetheless, he described the endorsement by the constituents as an indescribable feeling and a matter of listening to the call of the people.He also expressed confidence in his ability to unseat current Roseau Valley MP, Dr Colin McIntyre.“I would say that I am confident that my record is quite good in terms of representing the people at a local level and this is not the first time around, I have been doing this for quite a number of years”.He noted however that the decision as to who becomes the next parliamentary representative is a decision for the people to make.“One would have to look at Ronald Charles on one spectrum and look at Dr Colin McIntyre on the other and they would have to make a decision based on who they think would be the better representative”. “…But at the end of the day, it’s not me, it’s not even Colin McIntyre, it’s the people from the constituency and from the Roseau Valley to make that decision,” Charles said.
