India’s largest power producer, NTPC, has been organizing the “Global Energy Technology Summit” (GETS) over the past few years.  This brings nearly all the key players in the power industry, including global automation suppliers, OEMs, users, EPCs, and engineering service providers on a common platform to share their expertise.  At GETS 2016, held in Delhi, India, eminent experts from the power industry held a panel discussion moderated by ARC Advisory Group’s G. Ganapathiraman.  The discussions centered on “Digital transformation for the New Power Generation Landscape.”  This is the first in a series of ARC blogposts that will cover the various areas discussed by the panel.

Trimble’s SiteVision Turns Your Phone Into an Augmented Reality BIM Coordination Machine

Article | April 23, 2020

There are a handful of pretty cool accessories for your smartphone that can be very useful to those of us in the construction industry, like thermal imaging cameras, in-wall imagers, and inspection cameras. None of those, however, help with BIM coordination, unlike a system that I just found from construction software giant, Trimble. Many different systems have been created in recent years to harness the power of augmented reality on the jobsite, with BIM the core focus of many of those solutions, but this system from Trimble is a bit different than all of them. Using an AR enabled smartphone, Trimble SiteVision combines hardware and software to virtually project BIM models onto the jobsite you’re standing in.

15 sites in the frame to become home to the UK’s prototype fusion energy plant

Article | May 15, 2021

The UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) has revealed the long list of sites under consideration for development of the UK’s prototype fusion energy plant.An open call for sites to host the Spherical Tokomak for Energy Production (Step) facility was opened last year and compliance check of those nominated has led to publication of the long list. According to the UKAEA, moving fusion from research and development to design and delivery is an important part of the UK’s ambition to be a world leader in sustainable, low-carbon energy. Fusion has the potential to provide an abundant source of low-carbon energy by copying the processes that power the sun and stars. UKAEA has said that this new technology will play an important role alongside established renewable technologies such as wind and solar.Step programme director Paul Methven said: “STEP is about building on the amazing science done over decades in fusion and translating that into a real prototype power plant that paves the way for this fantastic new energy source.
