first_imgMarineEnergy.biz has compiled the top news from marine energy industry from June 25 until July 1, 2018.Swansea Bay tidal lagoon gets an official ‘no’The UK government has rejected the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon proposal, stating that it does not meet the requirements for value for money.The UK government’s decision not to support the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon project – proposed by Tidal Lagoon Power – was unveiled by the UK energy secretary Greg Clark during his address to the House of Commons on June 25, 2018.The decision comes 18 months after the release of the government-commissioned review of tidal lagoon industry, known as the Hendry Review, which backed the wider tidal lagoon industry, as well as the ‘pathfinder’ Swansea Bay tidal lagoon.PLAT-I bound for Nova Scotia after buoyant Scottish trialsUK marine engineering company Sustainable Marine Energy (SME) is preparing to ship the PLAT-I tidal energy platform from Connel in Western Scotland, to Grand Passage in Nova Scotia, where it will be put to the second round of sea trials.The 280kW PLAT-I platform, which was under trials at Connel Sound since November 2017, is expected to be Canada bound on a container ship by mid-July.SME is now teaming up with the Canadian company Black Rock Tidal Power Inc (BRTP) for the follow on project that will see the PLAT-I deployed for the second phase of testing in the harsher sea climate.MAKO tidal turbine set for Gladstone port demonstrationAustralian-based tidal energy company MAKO Tidal Turbines (MTT) and Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) have joined forces to conduct a six-month tidal turbine demonstration in Queensland.The project, set for deployment at Port of Gladstone, will investigate how tidal energy can contribute to Australia’s energy mix by producing clean, predictable renewable energy.MAKO said its tidal turbine is expected to be installed at GPC’s Barney Point Terminal within months.Sweden pumps in €8.2M for full-scale CorPower deviceThe Swedish Energy Agency has granted CorPower Ocean a little over €8 million (SEK 85 million) to support the construction and testing of a full-scale device and subsequent wave energy park demonstration.The demonstration wave energy park will feature three full-scale CorPower units, according to the Swedish Energy Agency.Earlier in the week, the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) issued a performance statement to CorPower Ocean following the dry testing of Swedish developer’s half-scale wave energy converter (WEC) in Stockholm.The testing involved the dry testing of CorPower’s power take-off (PTO) on the Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) test rig, specifically designed for the purposes of testing the PTO onshore as part of the Wave Energy Scotland (WES) funded Hi-Drive project.European ocean energy market study hot off the pressDG MARE, a body responsible for the EU Commission’s policies on maritime affairs and fisheries, has published an ocean energy market study which outlines the financial needs of the ocean energy sector in the EU.The scope of the study, co-authored by WavEC Offshore Renewables and Italian business management consultants COGEA, was to estimate the financial needs of the ocean energy sector in the EU, identify potential financing gaps and possible financing solutions, and to analyse recommendations of the ocean energy roadmap in that context.last_img read more

Hopefully, short lang kasi malaking dagok po ‘yan sa mgakababayan natin sa Batangas,” she said. Mariton Bornas, chief of Volcano Monitoring and Eruption PredictionDivision of the PHIVOLCS, said a prolonged eruption would be the “worst-casescenario” for Taal Volcano’s intense unrest. Residents use plastic bags to cover themselves from ash spewed from Taal Volcano’s unrest. Mariton Bornas, personnel of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, said a prolonged eruption could pose a serious challenge for the locals. EZRA ACAYAN/GETTY IMAGES/CNN.COM “Kung titingnan po natin ang historicaleruptions ng Taal, puwede po ‘yang kasing-ikli ng threedays katulad ng 1911 eruption o puwede ‘yang tumagal ng pitong buwanlike the 1754 eruption,” Bornas added. Meanwhile, President Rodrigo Duterte ordered government agencies toensure that the people affected by the eruption will be given assistance. “Pinapasigurado niya salahat ng ahensya ng executive, saDOH na dapat tutukan agad ‘yung sakalusugan, ‘yung mga mask dapat ma-distributeagad. Sa DSWD para magbigay ngtulong lalo na sa evacuation centers, ‘YungArmed Forces nag-deploy na ng lahat ng air assets ng Philippine Air Force. ‘Yung DOE dapat ma-restore ang power,” Sen. Christopher “Bong” Gosaid.  Duterte has given instructions to the Department of Health (DOH),Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Armed Forces of thePhilippines, and the Department of Energy (DOE), among others.center_img “Kapag pumuputok po nangmalakas, explosive eruption, maystudies na ginawa diyan, eitherdriven by explosion or may grounddeformation o pag-alsa ng lupa nasumisipa sa tubig,” she said. Very fine particles from volcanic ash would take about three daysbefore they settle from the atmosphere, Bornas added. “Siguro ang closest na puwede ihalintulad sa malakas na pagputokng Taal ay atomic bomb explosion– ‘yung itsura niya, hindi ‘yungenergy,” she said. “Mayroon kang matayogna eruption column tapos mayroong ‘ringkumakalat mula doon sa base ngeruption column.” MANILA – The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology(PHIVOLCS) is bracing for the possibility of a prolonged activity of the TaalVolcano, which it said could reach up to seven months. “Ang local governmentunits naman ang on top dito, supporting ang national government agencies. Dapat gumalaw kaagad ang lahat ng ahensya,” Go added./PN “Medyo mas malalaki ang mgailog diyan eh. Sa ibang parte ng bulkan, masyado matarik ang dalisdis so mahirap mag-accumulate ng deposits. Pero dito sa side ngLaurel mayroong plain diyan at may malaking drainage ng mga ilog, so puwede kang mag-generate ngmga lahar diyan,” she added.last_img read more
