Searching for new sources of energy in Ghana: nuclear energy is also evaluated

energy

According to the latest statements it appears that nuclear energy will be one of the main sources of power production by 2029.

Ghana has already made several attempts to diversify its energy mix with the introduction of solar sources. Now,  the Ministry of Energy is also thinking about nuclear energy. The government has established a Nuclear Regulatory Authority to guide the implementation of Ghana’s Nuclear Power Programme.

Before developing an infrastructure for nuclear power, each country must demonstrate ownership of infrastructural requirements. Lately, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) declares that the country already has all 19 required requirements. The first of three phases required by IAEA has passed!

Galbiati Group, company specialized in the Engineering and Construction of mechanical machines, provides nuclear power plants worldwide with machined components characterized by a high-level of quality.  All the details are available at the website www.galbiatigroup.it.

Still without a name… Fort Wayne Tunnel Boring Machines

name

It's tradition to choose a name for the "important worker" of tunnel construction: the Tunnel Boring Machine!

An online survey is in progress to choose the name of the Tunnel Boring Machines that this summer will arrive in Fort Wayne. The machine will serve in a massive underground project: a 5 mile long rock tunnel, more than 200 feet underground, that will help to improve the quality of local rivers. The TBM, still without a name, presents 20 feet in diameter and 400 feet in lenght.

Here are the finalist names, which will be the most voted?

  • Buster or Bedrock Buster: The machine digs deep underground and while digging, the machine “busts” through bedrock.
  • Daisy or Daisy the Digger: During World War II, Fort Wayne’s professional women’s baseball team was named the Daisies. This name honors the groundbreaking role of the Daisies, who helped pave the way for women’s professional sports.
  • MaMaJo: A tribute to Fort Wayne’s three rivers, Ma from Mary, Ma from Maumee and Jo from St. Joe. The tunnel will help protect Fort Wayne’s rivers.
  • Wayne the Worm: This combines the name of the city and the purpose of the machine, which is to dig the tunnel in bedrock just like a worm would dig a tunnel in the earth.

Galbiati Group builds TBM components such as planetary gearboxes, bearing supports, erectors. The company has recently realized one 4 ton-segment erector for a Tunnel Boring Machine designed for a excavation project. For more information visit the website www.galbiatigroup.it.

Stainless steel in medical and pharmaceutical applications

pharmaceutical

Due to its characteristics, the use of stainless steel is very common in the pharmaceutical and medical fields.

In the manufacture of medical and pharmaceutical devices, it is customary to use stainless steel for its high corrosion resistance, its low carbon content and its easy to operate and sanitize. Among the types of steel, the use of austenic stainless steel 304 is particularly indicated for medical applications.

It is known that the medical and pharmaceutical industries must meet very demanding criteria in the choice of materials.Therefore, stainless steel is regarded, all over the world, one of the most suitable materials for the manufacture of  medical devices for all types of medical applications, for hospitals and clinics. The properties of stainless steel 304 offer unique material characteristics, a competitive price and a material very resistant to bacteria. In addition, medical devices in stainless steel don’t chemically react with body tissue or with cleaning products used for medical sterilization.

Viganò International ensures the best results in the stainless steel processing and cutting. Visit the website www.vigano.international to know all the information about the company, its services and innovative solutions.
