Durable fitters cabinets are now being tailor-made by ergonomic product specialist Actisafe specifically for industrial, Defence Industry and general manufacturing applications. Actisafe, a ‘Defence Recognised Supplier’, has developed its fitters cabinets to meet the growing call for non size-specific products of this type. As longstanding commercial brands normally manufacture ranges in selected dimensions, industrial companies often find it difficult to fit catalogue sizes in specific locations. And it’s not just the dimension aspect of the Actisafe fitters cabinets that is custom-designed. All shelving and ancillaries fittings can also be made to order, so little aspects of the products ~ inside and out ~ such as handles, shelf inclusions, rollers etc can be procured to the exact requirement. For example, a recent order called for one section of the cabinet to be devoid of flooring. This request was made to allow a secondary cabinet the room to slide into the main fitters cabinet for a security lock up. All Actisafe fitters cabinets have a durable, industrial powder coating to provide many years in protection and service. Because Actisafe has its own powder coating facility, an extensive range of colour choices are available to allow companies to align with their own branding, safety procedures and identification needs. Actisafe fitters cabinets are 100% Australian made and are built to last.

The energy agency of the German state of North Rhine has granted the 100th funding approval for a fuel cell based microCHP unit. The funding program was launched in late 2012 and provides a grant of 65% of the investment costs for fuel cell microCHP systems. Just like the first system that received the funding, the 100th unit is also a BlueGEN from CFCL. Overall, BlueGEN units take up a significant share of the units funded so far. While the 100th unit to receive the funding will be installed at a construction company based in Wassenberg, NRW, the first unit has been running flawlessly for over a year now.

Nukes in week of celebration
On: Topic: General

Georgia Power is celebrating national Nuclear Science Week (October 20-24) by hosting and participating in a series of special local events in and around the company’s Plant Vogtle near Waynesboro, Georgia.

The annual celebration is organised to draw attention to all aspects of nuclear science and the vital role it plays in the lives of Americans, as well as encourage education and highlight the energy careers of tomorrow.

The week is especially poignant in Georgia as the construction of Plant Vogtle units three and four continues to progress, employing more than 5000 workers as the largest job-producing project in the state.

The Nuclear Literacy Project and the American Nuclear Society (ANS) Eastern Washington Section and ANS Puget Sound Section are collaborating with national and regional organisations to host activities in Seattle that will be featured for this year’s observance of Nuclear Science Week.

The regional presence of multiple nuclear start-ups ~ the public power entity Energy Northwest, the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, AREVA, aerospace and naval presence, as well as many contract companies ~ offer a potent narrative about the future of energy within a community that values innovation.

Programs for the week are designed to encourage education and awareness of the intersections of nuclear technologies and the rapidly changing world.
