The Nuclear New Build 2019

The Nuclear New Build 2019 conference took place in London on 11-12 June, bringing together the nuclear industry from the UK and elsewhere.

The conference opened with Nuclear Industry Association’s President speech, that highlighted the Nuclear energy advantages compared to wind and solar energy. The nuclear energy is not intermittent and has a similar if not lower carbon footprint than the others.

In his view, nuclear energy should form a major part of the UK government’s goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Ceramic and its application

Ceramic materials can be used in various applications, in particularly porosity in ceramic materials is be one of the key features for a wide range of applications.

They are used as lightweight structures, filters, acoustic or heat insulation, scaffolds and support structures for catalysis applications. Besides the low relative density, high temperature, as well local failure resistance, pore interconnectivity and permeability are interesting properties of porous ceramics. As example, they can be used as exhaust diesel filters or catalyst support structure in the automotive industry, as well as for filter or purification systems in the chemical and metal-processing industry, in waste-water treatment, biotechnology, pharmaceutical and food technology. In addition, various porous ceramics, such as cellular lightweight structures, can be used as thermal and acoustic insulators, ceramic heaters and heat exchangers.

Porous ceramics show outstanding structural (open/closed pores, cell/pore shape) and physical (mechanical, thermal, electric and acoustic) properties depending on porosity, pore network, pore connectivity and pore shape depending on the fabrication process. With additive manufacturing of more complex structures with designed properties and macrostructure can be made. Adding additional functionalization enhances mechanical, thermal or catalytic properties of homogeneous and non-homogeneous materials. Functionalization can be done by additional active or non-active surface coatings, chemical reactions on the surface, increasing surface area by introduction of hierarchy or solid-state reactions between coating and support.

Galbiati group is proud to communicate its evolution in Industry 4.0 field, specialized in mechanical engineering and construction since 1962, Galbiati Group is successful in all markets that require high standard precision component and machines. For more technical information click here.

Proton Therapy Market 2019 Global Trends

The rise in popularity of proton therapy is continuing across the globe.

It is estimated that more than 165,000 patients suffering from a variety of cancers, such as prostate cancer, brain tumors have already been successfully treated using this method. In fact, the proton therapy market is on track to become a multibillion-dollar industry by 2024.

The number of proton therapy center is increasing globally. Still, industry experts believe that players will miss out on a majority of cancer patients who can benefit with proton therapy, overlooking a huge multi-billion-dollar potential market.

The proton therapy market is likely to almost double by 2024 from its current market value. Globally, the numbers of patients treated with Proton Therapy is very low whereas; the potential candidates for proton therapy are in Millions. The increased demand for proton therapy has motivated many prominent cancer centers in the world to provide proton therapy treatment.

The increased demand for proton therapy has motivated many prominent cancer centers in the world to provide proton therapy treatment. The number of proton therapy centers worldwide is anticipated to increase year on year, which in turn, will result in more clinical research, better clinician understanding and greater patient awareness of its benefits-which will help drive the further growth.

California: companies want to build offshore wind farms

The U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management announced in April that fourteen companies have applied to build wind turbine farms along the California coast.

11 of these 14 companies expressed a particular interest for a plot of ocean near San Simeon.

BOEM issued a call for application in October 2018, asking for commercial companies interested in leasing place for 700-foot, floating offshore wind turbines along parts of the California coast.

The 14 companies selected have additionally been vetted by the BOEM, and found to be “legally, technically and financially qualified to hold an outer continental shelf renewable energy lease”.

Galbiati Group performs custom mechanical processing for the production of wind energy plants worldwide: boring, milling and drilling of components for wind turbines (frames, blade port hubs, rotors and stators).

TBM market forecasts

In recent years, international manufacturers of Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) have cooperation with Chinese enterprises and China has become the world’s largest TBM manufacturer which occupied more than 64% of production in total 2017.

In the foreign industrial developed countries the Tunnel Boring Machine industry is generally at a more advanced level. In Japan, Europe and the United States manufacturer of TBM still has a considerable size.

The consumption volume of TBM in Europe was about 77 Units, which was follow by US, with a volume of 48 Units.

TBM can be used in the process of Subway, tunnels, water conservancy project, mine, etc. With the development of industry and technology, the potential market for Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) is still huge.

The Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) market was valued at 4740 Million US$in 2018 and is projected to reach 4370 Million US$ by 2025, at a CAGR of -1.0% during the forecast period. In this study, 2018 has been considered as the base year and 2019 to 2025 as the forecast period to estimate the market size for Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM).

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

Cement industry in Nigeria

The importance of cable cars to reshape urban landscapes

cable cars

Cable cars are able to adorn the country’s mountaintops like garlands.

Fernando Simas, a researcher at EPFL’s Urban Sociology Laboratory, thinks that the cable cars could become a popular among city residents and provide much more than just a means of getting around.

Simas explores how city residents generally use public transportation, in order to determine how urban cable cars could fit into commuters’ existing habits.

Cable cars are perceived as being more comfortable than city buses and similar to boats in the way they break with the monotony of public transportation.

They form a kind of cocoon for passengers, as do automobiles. But whereas automobiles create a semi-private space, cable cars create a semi-public space that is physically removed from the confines of the surrounding urban environment. That helps passengers relax and makes their commute more enjoyable.
