SEI GOStation gives another remote fuel supply option for mines

first_imgSEI Industries recently launched its new GO-Station fuel modules, built inside ISO containers, and capable of providing everything needed to receive and transfer fuel from any bulk fuel storage system, so with numerous potential applications in remote mine sites and new projects. SEI states: “The concept is simple – provide a controlled, protected environment to house pumping, filtration, metering and dispensing equipment. Make it tough, compact and portable so it can be shipped by land, sea or air. Design it to withstand remote locations and engineer it to be compatible with diesel fuel, jet fuel or lube oils.” Future models will also allow gas.“The first three GO-Station units are currently in various stages of construction and are expected to be commissioned by the end of the year at an undisclosed remote mine site,” says Paul Reichard, Remote Site Division manager at SEI Industries.  “The GO-Station is ideal for remote operations and an innovative next step when it comes to permanent, safe refueling systems.” Unique GO-Station features include the following:All controls are explosion-proof and mounted within an onboard electrical room for easy accessContainers are insulated with doors and ports for connection to fuel lines and power.  Stainless steel piping and valving is used to interconnect the modulesFire suppression systems and spill protection is built-inMultiple dispensing units are accessible by roll up doors with retractable hose reels to provide bulk transfer or refueling of vehicles, tanker trucks or lube trucksAll components are built on modular skids that can be easily moved for service or replaced, if the need arisesExplosion-proof lighting is standard and area explosion-proof heating is available as an option as are automated tank monitoring and fluid controlslast_img read more

Property investors still love us but there could be competition from Spain

first_imgTHE UK AND Ireland are still leading the way in the Commercial Real Estate market, but could face strong competition from other European countries in coming months.That’s the verdict of international property consultancy Cushman Wakefield, which is predicting a flood of Spanish assets coming onto the market to take advantage of record levels of interest from international investors.Intense interest in Irish commercial property and loans has been a feature of the Irish market in the last 18-24 months, and has allowed Nama to accelerate its sales process.A new report from international property consultancy Cushman Wakefield found that €40.9 billion worth of CRE deals done this year, 30% more than the total for the entire year last year, and 611% more than the first six months of 2013. Source: Cushman & WakefieldCushman Wakefield have estimated a total figure of around €584 billion in exposure to non-core real estate for banks around Europe – the property consultants are betting that some or all of this property could be offered up to funds over the coming years.While the UK and Ireland accounted for 63% of all deals completed during the first half of the year, Cushman Wakefield said that the Spanish market is ‘ballooning’ and is “guaranteed a record year.”This is largely due to sales anticipated to come from Spain’s version of Nama, Sareb, which has around €102 billion worth of real estate to get rid of.Not to be outdone, the report notes that UK and Irish banks still have a combined exposure of €244 billion to property “and therefore will continue to be key players in the market”.Read: Sold! €90 million deal for two IFSC office blocks>Read: Is the Irish commercial property feeding frenzy a good idea?>last_img read more
