Eco Wave Power Receives Final Engineering Coordination Permit for EWP-EDF One Project Cement Works and Floaters Installation

Eco Wave Power | February 08, 2021

In a huge administrative achievement, Eco Wave Power is satisfied to report that today it got the designing coordination license from the Municipality of Tel-Aviv Jaffa required for the concrete works and establishment of ten floaters for the EWP-EDF One wave energy project in the Port of Jaffa, Israel.

This license permits Eco Wave Power to continue with the real establishment of the undertaking in the ocean side of the jetty, which will incorporate concrete works for the barrier's support and the establishment of 10 floaters, on 30 direct meters of a previous embankment inside the port, having an introduced limit of 100 KW. Every floater will have a surface zone of 8.54 square meters. All affable works were arranged and will be directed by Alex Gleizer, a structural architect with 25 years of involvement, executing projects for the Israeli Railway Company, the Israeli Air Force, and the Israeli Electric Company.

"I have taken part in multiple energy projects, such as a 495MW traditional power station in 2012 and a pumped storage hydroelectricity project in the Gilboa in Israel in 2017, but Eco Wave Power's wave energy technology is definitely the most unique and innovative project that I have taken part in. I am very excited to take part in this project by supervising the execution of the civil works in a safe and reliable manner," said Alex Gleizer.

"We are delighted to announce this milestone, which is a final engineering coordination permit that enables us to continue with the cement works and floaters' installation portion of our works, and is bringing us one step closer to deploying our second grid-connected wave energy power station. Due to the onshore nature of the Eco Wave Power technology, the cement and floaters installation works will be straightforward and will not involve any ships, divers, underwater cables or underwater moorings, which are known to be extremely expensive and complex. All works will be performed from the land side, using standard equipment such as cranes, thus reinforcing the cost-effectiveness of the Eco Wave Power technology, in comparison to offshore solutions," said Inna Braverman, Founder and CEO of Eco Wave Power.

The works, which will be executed by means of a sub-worker for hire, are relied upon to be finished in the forthcoming months.

The EWP-EDF One venture is executed as a team with EDF Renewables IL and co-subsidizing from the Israeli Energy Ministry.

Enterprises in the service industry are now widely cognisant of the applicability of robotic process automation (RPA) techniques to achieve significant productivity gains while being cost conscious. RPA’s ability to reduce processing time and errors, enhance scalability and compliance, and enable staff to focus on value-adding activities rather than repetitive tasks has been vindicated across industries and is now widely accepted.

Webcor Selects PCL's Job Site Insights™ Smart Construction Platform to Enable the Future of Construction Job Site

PCL Construction | September 29, 2020

PCL Construction is pleased to announce that Webcor Construction, #36 on the ENR Top 100, has selected PCL's Job Site Insights™ (JSI™) smart construction platform to enable the future of construction on its job sites. Changing environmental conditions are one of the biggest challenges and risks to construction sites and workforces. JSI™ is a custom-built Internet of Things (IoT) platform that enables real-time data-driven insights in the field leveraging IoT sensors that continuously monitor environmental conditions in the field. PCL is continually looking for ways to enhance the safety, quality and schedule of its construction projects while reducing costs. Forming strategic partnerships that can drive construction processes towards a technologically-advanced future can enhance the industry as a whole. "By monitoring things like temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, water leak detection, concrete strength, sound, vibration, gases, and energy consumption to name a few, we can dramatically alter and enhance how construction is done today," said PCL's CIO, Mark Bryant. "Job Site Insights™ is the leading smart construction platform in the industry. By reducing costly rework, improving build quality, and making improvements to productivity, safety and energy efficiency we can rewrite the history book of construction," said Bryant. "Additionally, use of JSI™ reduces manual labor costs, and drives down insurance claims and premiums making it a "must have" for all budget-conscious construction organizations.

Dunwoody College of Technology Announces the Establishment of a Program in Power and Construction Engineering Technology

Dunwoody | March 10, 2022

Dunwoody College of Technology, a private, non-profit university and pioneer in technical education announced its Power & Construction Engineering Technology program. The program offers an online bachelor's degree completion option for electrical graduates interested in advancing their careers as electrical construction engineers, electrical design engineers, senior project managers, estimators, drafters, or solar energy systems engineers. Prospective students may enroll now for classes beginning in the fall of 2022. Electrical Engineering Technology is a specialized field of electrical engineering that focuses on the built environment, from vertical and horizontal structures to infrastructure, including utilities. Transfer students with a two-year degree in electrical construction or electrical design are eligible for the online program, which offers part-time and full-time alternatives. Students will participate in synchronous or asynchronous classes via the Canvas Learning Management System and Microsoft Teams. "At Dunwoody, we work closely alongside partners to understand the skills and training needed to fulfill the hiring pipeline ensuring that our students are the strongest candidates for the job, Through extensive industry research, we identified a need for electrical and solar system engineers and are proud to offer the Power & Construction Engineering Technology program to current and future students. Innovative pilot programs like this one help transform our learners into leaders and students into collaborators and creative problem solvers." Polly Friendshuh, Dean of Construction Sciences & Building Technology Dunwoody's new curriculum focuses on advanced control system design, building and energy codes, and advanced project management training. Students enrolled in the B.S. program in Power & Construction Engineering Technology will acquire and practice skills using industry-standard software such as AutoCAD, Revit, Microstation, Accubid, and Navisworks.
