First Terex Explorer reaches France

first_imgDesigned with worldwide roadability in mind, the Terex Explorer 5800 is especially suited to French road regulations, said Terex.”Because of its compactness, it is a perfect crane for jobsites in an urban environment,” said Arnaud Brouillard, co-owner of S.V.M.M. “The Explorer 5800 has roughly the same footprint as our Terex AC 120, which our operators are well accustomed to.

PEP flat at Allen & Overy amid uncertain climate

first_imgView our table of the latest financial results Profits per equity partner stayed flat at magic circle firm Allen & Overy in 2015/16, amid a slowdown in China and uncertainty over the UK’s referendum.Average profit per equity partner remained level at £1.2m for the year ending 30 April 2016. Profits before tax dropped 1.4% to £562m, which the firm attributed to a change in the International Financial Reporting Standards accounting provisions for pensions and property costs.Meanwhile revenue rose 2.3% to £1.31bn, which the firm said underlines the natural hedge provided by its geographical spread and breadth of expertise.According to the firm, there were particularly strong performances in the first half of the year in London, improving trading conditions in the rest of Europe and strong performances in regions including the Middle East and China.Andrew Ballheimer, global managing partner, said: ‘The year has seen mixed markets around the world.‘On the one hand we had an M&A boom in developed markets during calendar 2015, while on the other hand clients also had to contend with a slowdown in China, the collapse of oil and commodity prices and rising uncertainty over the UK’s referendum.’He added: ‘As we move into an uncertain climate, the resilience we have built into our business in the variety of the work we do, our strength across Europe and the rest of the world and our alternative delivery models puts us in a strong position to help our clients, whatever challenges they face in the weeks and months ahead.’last_img read more

Distance-to-go signalling rivals moving block benefits

first_imgINTRO: When Madrid Metro extends Line 10 next year, trains will be able to run at shorter headways than is possible with the speed signalling in use today. This is achieved by avoiding the need for an empty ’zero speed’ block between following trainsBYLINE: David GillanDirector, Business DevelopmentInvensys Rail SystemsMOST MODERN metros equipped with automatic train protection operate in one of three modes: speed signalling, distance-to-go or moving block. This applies regardless of whether manual or automatic driving is used, since it is a fundamental principle of ATO that a functionally independent ATP system must be installed to prevent any collision caused by wrong-side ATO failure.Westinghouse Rail Systems Ltd and Dimetronic Signals, both members of Invensys Rail Systems (IRS), have developed TBS100, a transmission-based train control system capable of migrating between these three levels of operation. The objective is to maximise return on capital expenditure without constraining future capacity increases. Since 1968, WRSL and Dimetronic have supplied speed signalling-based ATP and ATO systems to London Underground (Victoria and Central lines), Hong Kong, Singapore, Beijing and Madrid.Most Madrid Metro lines have automatic train operation, but Lines 9 and 10 are equipped with speed signalling using TBS100. At present, Line 10 runs from Fuencarral in the north of the city to Aluche in the southwest. It is currently being upgraded and extended by 8·3 km from Puerta de Batlast_img read more

UK railway news round-up

first_imgNetwork Rail has applied for planning consent for a rolling stock depot at Exeter which would be used by train operator Great Western Railway from mid-2019. Situated alongside the existing facilities at Exeter St David’s station, it would include modern facilities for servicing, cleaning and maintenance, as well as office space and staff welfare facilities. London Overground services on the 22 km route between Gospel Oak and Barking resumed on February 27, following a phased eight-month closure for 25 kV 50 Hz electrification work. However, design errors and the late delivery of materials and structures mean that the project has not been fully completed, and further closures will be needed before the start of electric services in early 2018. Installation of free passenger wi-fi on Arriva Trains Wales’ Class 150, 158 and 175 DMUs has begun with completion planned for mid-April, following testing using one unit from each class. ‘We are investing nearly £50m to roll out free, fast and reliable wi-fi on trains and I am delighted that passengers of ATW are set to be among those to benefit’, said Transport Minister Paul Maynard. ‘We already require new franchisees to offer free wi-fi as standard and are determined that 90% of all trains will have access to wi-fi by the end of 2018.’ Some trains on the Edinburgh – North Berwick route will be six cars instead of four between February 20 and the end of April, as ScotRail undertakes driver training using Siemens Class 380 EMUs ahead of the arrival of new Hitachi EMUs. Edinburgh – North Berwick/Dunbar services will be permanently lengthened from December 2018.Govia Thameslink Railway is asking passengers who had season tickets for its Southern-branded services last year to check if they are eligible for compensation equivalent to a month’s travel under a one-off scheme launched by the Department for Transport following severe disruption during 2016.Virgin Trains is to expand its customer call centre in Newcastle by 50%, creating up to 45 jobs as it brings its web support team in-house. Network Rail is due complete early in 2019 a £2·3m package of accessibility improvements at Warwick station, funded under government’s Access for All programme. Lifts and ramps are to be installed to provide step-free access to the platforms from the subway which connects them.Nomad Digital’s contract to provide passenger wi-fi on Northern Ireland Railways services has been extended for a further five years and expanded to cover the Translink bus fleet.Transport for Wales is undertaking consultation on what users want from the next Wales & Borders franchise which is due to start in October 2018. ‘We inherited a franchise which was let on a zero-growth basis and no longer fully meets the needs of a modern Wales’, said Welsh Economy & Infrastructure Secretary Ken Skates. ‘We’re keen to ensure that our new service takes full account of what passengers want, and provides not only for current requirements but also allows for future growth, quality improvements and is able to adapt to ever-changing technology.’ At a cost of £900 000, Network Rail is extending Platform 2 at Northallerton station by 20 m to accommodate the Hitachi IEP trainsets due to enter service on the East Coast Main Line next year. This follows the start of work at Durham to build a 40 m platform extension.last_img read more

first_imgSierra Leone Football Association President, Isha Johansen. Courtesy: Thompson Reuters Sierra Leone Football Association President, Isha Johansen. Courtesy: Thompson ReutersSierra Leone Football Association President Isha Johansen and FA Secretary General, Chris Kamara are both able to remain in their respective positions following an acquittal of all counts of corruption by a court in Freetown.Their acquittal could also eventually Sierra Leone return to competition in football.FIFA banned Sierra Leone in October 2018 because of what it said was “third party interference in the running of the Sierra Leone Football Association”.The government-backed Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) accused Johansen and Kamara of graft and demanded the pair vacate their posts.  The ACC then installed vice-president Brima Mazola Kamara and Assistant Secretary-General Abdul Rahman Swarray to replace Johnansen and Chris Kamara. But FIFA said that it would only recognize Johansen as the SLFA president and subsequently suspended Sierra Leone. FIFA said it would wait for the case to be completed before considering further action, including the possibility of reinstating Sierra Leone.The ACC filed ten corruption charges against the pair but charges against Johansen were drastically reduced from ten counts to four. Kamara saw his charges reduced to three.Johansen and Chris Kamara have always maintained they did nothing wrong.last_img read more
