Seamor Marine Debuts New ROV with 3km Capacity

generation company, Electron Investment SA (EISA), purchased Seamor Marine’s Chinook ROV to perform 7.1 km of tunnel and penstock inspection at its Old Chiriqui River hydroelectric project and identify any areas in need of repair.The Monte Lirio project opened in 2014 and generates 51.6 MW of clean energy. The Pando project opened in 2019 and generates 33.3 MW.“One of the main reasons we chose an ROV to inspect the tunnels was that it was much less costly both financially and environmentally than the alternative of draining the tunnels for inspection,” said Iván Parra, Civil

statement:“The science is clear. The world’s leading experts have long known that climate change is caused by human beings, it is here, and it is accelerating.”Warren presents a veritable library of energy and climate issues and ideas.Central focus: a 10-year plan to achieve 100% clean energy by decarbonizing electricity, vehicles and buildings.  She proposes:• A “Green Apollo” plan – investing $400 billion in 10 years in R&D.  Outcomes would be linked to her –• “Green Manufacturing” plan, a 10-year, $1.5 trillion investment

forward to introducing the next generation offshore wind turbine to the market. For decades, Ørsted has pioneered the introduction of new technology and new suppliers which has been fundamental to drive down the cost of electricity, and today offshore wind is a competitive source of homegrown clean energy that can help countries and states achieve their climate targets while creating long-lasting economic activity.”In the US alone, seven states on the east coast have committed to building a total of 20 gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind capacity by 2035, emphasizing the need for a broad and

of its growing developments, such as rising urbanisation and industrialization that lead to greater supply in the electricity industry. The nations focus on renewable energy generation, and offshore wind is an essential component of renewable power generation.Technological progress and the use of clean energy would further boost the deployment of wind power and open up new options for emerging Asia-Pacific markets, especially in countries like China, Japan and South Korea, seeking alternative energy sources to diversify their energy mix to reduce CO2 emissions.
