SPI to develop 50 MW PV project in China

first_imgSPI to develop 50 MW PV project in ChinaThe California-based group is looking to expand operations in China’s utility-scale PV sector, which it expects to soon be one of the largest in the world. July 3, 2014 Edgar Meza Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share Xinyu Xinwei New Energy, a wholly-owned subsidiary of turnkey developer and EPC contractor SPI Solar, has signed an agreement with the government of Fenyi County in China’s Jiangxi Province to build and develop a 50 MW PV project in the region. Once completed, the facility is expected to be one of the largest utility-scale PV projects in Jiangxi. As part of the agreement, the Fenyi government will provide certain guarantees and support to Xinwei for the project’s construction and development phases in addition to offering certain incentives and other services for later phases and leading up to grid connection. “China is one of SPI’s key global focus markets in which to develop utility-scale PV projects, and while still in the early stages of growth, we believe China’s installed PV market will mature into one of the largest globally within the foreseeable future,” said SPI Chairman Xiaofeng Peng. SPI is a subsidiary of LDK Solar.Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

Bucks County 911 Director Resigns, 6 Suspended Following Probe

first_img[email protected] Wiggins will retire effective May 2, and his last day in the office will be March 28. The county will launch a national search for his replacement. The county initially disciplined 11 dispatchers and four supervisors, primarily by placing letters of reprimand in their personnel files. Officials also promised to implement policies and procedures to prevent similar problems. Wiggins declined to comment through county spokeswoman Stacey Hadjak. All six of the dispatchers who were unoccupied have been given unpaid one-day suspensions, Cawley said, a harsher punishment than the letters of reprimand initially placed in their personnel files. Three supervisors have been given unpaid suspensions of two to five days, he said. Another dispatcher was in the middle of forwarding information about an assault suspect to a responding police officer, and two others were dispatching Bucks County agencies to emergencies in Montgomery County. County officials announced no change in the discipline handed down to the dispatcher who first answered Orr’s call and placed it on hold. The county reported at a Feb. 13 news conference that 10 dispatchers were unoccupied and failed to answer the phone when 53-year-old Brenda Orr called, saying her bed was on fire. Cawley would not say whether the commissioners asked for Wiggins’ retirement, but noted the 35-year county employee had been talking about retiring in 2009. That dispatcher asked Orr for her address, told her to leave the house and then, after two minutes and nine seconds had elapsed, dispatched fire and rescue services. One was coming off a police call and tried to pick up Orr’s 911 call a split second after it was picked up by another dispatcher who was in the middle of dispatching an ambulance and put it on hold, the probe found. “We felt that in the interest of trying to be as candid as possible in this situation … we thought it was important to provide as much detail as was allowed under law,” Cawley said. The county completed a preliminary report on the call in February. It said the call was eventually answered “out of frustration” by a dispatcher who was on an ambulance call. Orr, who had multiple sclerosis, died when her bed caught fire. The fire spread and gutted her house. Fire officials suspect it was caused by a cigarette. Cawley said the county continues to examine its response to Orr’s call and is awaiting a report from the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, which is auditing quality control procedures at the 911 center at the county’s request. Cawley gave new details of the incident, uncovered after the commissioners directed Emergency Management Director John Dougherty and Human Resources Director Carmen Thome to take over the internal probe from Wiggins. Cawley said the county made the unusual decision to discuss details of employee discipline because it was merited by the seriousness of the incident. Orr called 911 at 10:31 a.m., but her call was allowed to ring six times before it was picked up. Then she was put on hold for 26 seconds before a second dispatcher took over the call. But Dougherty said further examination revealed four of the 10 were busy on work-related tasks and will not be disciplined. He said that decision was made after getting “some anonymous comments in the form of letters and phone calls that the investigation needed to be taken out of the hands of the department itself.” ALLENTOWN, Pa. — The director of Bucks County’s emergency communications center has stepped down in the wake of the mishandling of a 911 distress call from a disabled Doylestown woman who died in a Jan. 29 house fire. The report faulted dispatchers and their supervisors for letting Orr’s call ring six times, and said she should not have been put on hold. In addition, Cawley said, six dispatchers and three supervisors have been briefly suspended without pay. Brent Wiggins, who directed the 911 dispatch operation since 1991, has tendered his retirement, County Commissioner Chairman James Cawley said Tuesday. County fire officials have said the delay in response probably did not contribute to Orr’s death. “It’s safe to say the circumstances surrounding this incident may have played a factor in his decision,” Cawley said. “I would submit this incident did.” The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union filed a grievance several days later on behalf of the disciplined dispatchers.last_img read more

Remkus Launches Kids Peace Chorus

first_imgPhoto by Nancy RemkusEast End children in grades three through six have the opportunity to join and form the Kids Community Peace Chorus, to share peace through music.“After the Parkland School shooting, along with all of the challenges in the world today, I wanted to create a community through music and bring people together to spread a message of peace,” said Nancy Remkus, a retired Sag Harbor Elementary School teacher and local musician who will serve as chorus director while spearheading the project.The first chorus meeting is on April 19 from 5:30 to 7 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Meetinghouse of the South Fork in Bridgehampton. Although the chorus is independent and nondenominational, the UUs have offered to sponsor the group, which includes providing rehearsal space, pizza, and beverages. The chorus will meet regularly to sing and talk, write songs, and discuss the meaning of peace while having fun.“The congregation very generously offered to sponsor this venture. Even though the chorus will be nondenominational, our mission is the same, to spread a message of peace and achieve peace within our community and the world,” said Remkus.Remkus received her undergraduate degree in music therapy, an area of allied health where music is used within a therapeutic relationship to address physical, psychological, cognitive, and social needs of individuals. She blended her foundation in music therapy with a career in education, eventually founding Sag Harbor Elementary School’s Morning Program, a daily gathering of students and faculty where they would talk and sing.“We can help kids express their feelings through music and help them understand how peace begins within us, and how we can practice peace in our lives. Music, of course, promotes communication, creates social bonding, and develops cooperation,” she added.Remkus plans to have the children learn songs in various languages about peace in the world, the environment, and within themselves. She also hopes to find opportunities in the community for the children to perform and share their message.All children in the third through sixth grades are welcome to join. The group will work with any number of children who join, whether it’s “five or 25,” she noted.“Music has the power to directly reach the heart and that message can travel from one heart to another. I believe that music can influence and promote great movements for peace in the world,” Remkus said.“Kids are naturally creative, musical, and artistic. Singing together can help kids bond, whatever the song or language. They can also express their feelings of joy or excitement, of being scared or proud.”For more information or to register, contact Remkus at 631-725-3938 or via email at [email protected]@[email protected] Sharelast_img read more

LSU’s Alex Lange can’t wait to pitch in regional

On Saturday, he will be in the heart of it all on the pitcher’s mound when No. 1 LSU plays in either the winners bracket game at 8 p.m. or the losers bracket game at 3 p.m.The No. 2 national seed Tigers (48-10) open the NCAA Baton Rouge Regional at 3 p.m. Friday against No. 4 regional seed Lehigh (25-29) on the SEC Network. No. 2 regional seed North Carolina-Wilmington (39-16) plays No. 3 regional seed Tulane (34-23) at 7 p.m. Friday. The two losers play at 3 p.m. Saturday. The two winners play at 8 on Saturday night.LSU coach Paul Mainieri named Lange (10-0, 2.11 ERA) his starter for Saturday and sophomore left-hander Jared Poche (7-1, 3.35 ERA) his starter for Sunday. He has not named a starter for Friday’s game and said he may use several arms.Lange is hoping the Saturday game he pitches is of the winners bracket variety in prime time. He frequently pitched on Saturday nights at the Box during the regular season.Jared Foster’s LSU odyssey could all end up in Omaha“It would be awesome,” Lange said. “Playing in Alex Box under the lights on Saturday nights is a really great feeling. The fans are awesome. I am really looking forward to that, but we have to finish it out on Friday first.”Lange, a native of Lee’s Summit, Missouri, was in the Box at age 16 in 2012 when LSU won the NCAA Regional with a victory over Louisiana-Monroe and two over Oregon State to advance to the Super Regional, where it beat Stony Brook in the first game before losing the next two.“I’ve been to a couple of regional games in Alex Box, and it’s electric,” he said. “It’s a fun atmosphere. I’m real excited to play in it and be a part of it for the first time. I was here in 2012, and it definitely did surprise me because being from back home, we don’ get that kind of atmosphere for college baseball. Like I said all year, these are the best fans in the country. This is the best place to play college baseball in the country. So we’re really excited for the atmosphere and the environment.”FRIDAY STARTING PITCHERS: Senior left-hander Nick Macaione (3-4, 2.82 ERA) will start for the Lehigh Mountain Hawks at 3 p.m. Friday against an LSU starter yet to be named.“Don’t be surprised if there are a lot of pitchers throwing on Friday,” said Mainieri, who has struggled to find a consistent third starter. “I’ll put it that way.”There is more than a 50 percent chance of rain for Baton Rouge Friday afternoon as well.“The weather may play into it,” Mainieri said. “If there are scattered showers, we may try to piece it together.”Lehigh coach Sean Leary, meanwhile, is not saving his ace to try to beat a lesser regarded team on day two. Macaione is his ace as he has the best ERA on the team and most innings pitched at 67. No pitcher on the staff has more than five wins. Kevin Long, a junior right-hander, is 5-2 on the season, but he has a 6.64 ERA.LSU has some scores to settleLOOKING AHEAD: Should LSU win on Friday and Saturday, it will play at 7 p.m. Sunday against the winner of Sunday’s 3 p.m. game. If LSU loses that game, it would play at 7 p.m. Monday.NOTABLE LEHIGH ALUM: LSU athletic director Joe Alleva graduated from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, in 1974 and was the quarterback and team captain in his senior season while also playing on the baseball team. He graduated with a degree in finance.QUOTE OF THE DAY: “We have the best offensive team, maybe in the country. But you can’t win with just offense. We’re going to have to pitch to win this regional.”— LSU coach Paul Mainieri.
