Ørsted Announce Plans for Offshore Wind Farm to Power 1 Million Homes, ahead of speaking at Benelux Infrastructure Forum

Benelux Infrastructure Forum 2018

Benelux Infrastructure Forum 2018

Ørsted, the largest energy company in Denmark & one of 17+ expert speakers at Benelux Infrastructure Forum 2018 plan offshore wind farm to power 1 million homes

LONDON, WATERLOO, UNITED KINGDOM, August 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Denmark-based renewable energy company Ørsted has recently unveiled its plans for a sustainable energy solution that will power more than 1 million homes in the UK when completed. The power company will be one of many industry-leading organisations speaking and presenting at the 17th annual Benelux Infrastructure Forum taking place 21st – 22nd November 2018 in Amsterdam (http://www.beneluxconf.com/einpr)

Ørsted is partnering with Belgium-based DEME Group, who will be employing their Innovation installation vessel to install 174 monopiles. The large support structures are essentially cylindrical steel tubes extending into the seabed, serving as anchors for the tower. DEME Group are also confirmed to attend this year’s event, along with European Investment Bank, DLA Piper, NWB Bank, Loyens & Loeff and many more.

As the monopiles are massive structures, the Innovation can only carry 4 at a time, one of the reasons why the project's predicted completion date is 2020 and Ørsted hopes to make it fully operational by then.*

Ørsted will be bringing their expertise to this year's 17th annual Benelux Infrastructure Forum in the form of Marie de Graaf, Head of Business Development, who will be presenting at this year's two-day conference on “Supporting Green Energy Transition in the Benelux Region”.

Marie will be focusing on the topics of supplying renewable energy to the Netherlands: Borssele Wind Farms, securing continued financing for renewable energy projects, diversifying funding sources over time to minimise re-financing risk, allocating excess liquidity in subsidiaries to group parent, and achieving the 2025 goal: 11-12GW installed offshore capacity.

Marie has over 10 years' experience in the Renewable Energy sector in project manager/financial advisor roles, focusing mainly on the development of wind energy projects. She has worked as project manager on various renewable energy projects, in charge of coordinating project teams and stakeholders, including banks, contractors and advisors, as well as various work streams on project level, such as financial structuring, commercial negotiations of project and finance contracts, and overall process management.

This year's two-day conference will be the biggest yet, hosting an international gathering of industry leaders from international law firms, banks, investment funds, energy companies, investment, asset and fund managers, insurance companies, European Commission, and engineering consultancies.

Delegates are urged to book their place now to take advantage of an unmatched networking opportunity and meet with some of the biggest names in the industry.

EKOGRID In-Situ Remediation Removes Oil Pollution at Tallinn Site in Just Three Months

Sami Humala, Sales Director of Eko Harden Technologies

Oil pollution discovered after work began on a five story apartment building

This oil remediation project in Tallinn demonstrates once again the sheer ingenuity of EKOGRID to solve many of the world’s polluted sites in-situ and in the shortest timeframe”

— Sami Humala, Sales Director of Eko Harden Technologies

HELSINKI, FINLAND, August 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Greentech remediation specialists Eko Harden Technologies (EHT) Oy today announces that it has completed an in-situ soil remediation contract at a five-story apartment block under construction in Tallinn, Estonia using its EKOGRID™ technology. The contract was undertaken with remediation partner Corena Group and took just three months to bring oil pollution levels down to acceptable norms.

Before construction began on the new five story apartment block with underground parking and technical facilities in the basement, the site was home to an 8.35MW boiler house with an underground oil reservoir with four 50m3 containers and heated by shale oil.

When construction began on the new building, oil pollution was discovered near the old oil reservoir. The soil was polluted at a depth of 1.65-3.8m by petroleum products and phenols and was treated with simple excavation and mass transfer.

However, it was subsequently found that the natural sand layer beneath the already constructed new building was polluted with PAH compounds and exceeded limits for residential land. With the building and underground communications already completed, the builder decided that further mass transfer was not possible without damaging the new building’s structures.

EHT’s EKOGRID technology was selected to clean the soil in-situ. The technology uses electrokinetic and chemical reactions to promote bioremediation and oxidation of pollutants in soil and/or groundwater. An electrokinetic field is created using interconnected steel electrodes installed in the polluted ground with a control unit providing pulsed power output.

Electrolysis of water happens as the pulsed current makes the charged contents of the pore water move quickly back and forward with short electro-osmotic pulses, and freshly formed free radicals and oxygen promote oxidation of contaminants.

As a result of electron displacement, free electron donors act as an energy source to microbes that break down various organic pollutants. This means that EKOGRID is used not only for breaking down hydrocarbons, but also promotes bioremediation.

23 EKOGRID electrodes were installed in the Tallinn building’s basement through the concrete flooring and insulated for the part inside the concrete.

The remediation process that begun earlier this year lasted three months before the analysis showed that the polluted site met the norms of the Tallinn City Government. During the remediation period, construction continued as planned allowing the new site to be completed on time.

“This oil remediation project in Tallinn demonstrates once again the sheer ingenuity of EKOGRID to solve many of the world’s polluted sites in-situ and in the shortest timeframe,” says Sami Humala, Sales Director of Eko Harden Technologies. “In this particular case, exporting polluted soil by mass transfer to another site was not feasible and the first phase of remediation by excavation did not eliminate all pollutants and only gave temporary relief.”

“Companies operating in oil & gas, extractive, manufacturing and chemicals industries, as well as ports & harbors, transportation and selected state sectors are increasingly dependent on outsourced services for emergency spill and environmental pollution response operations and hazardous waste management solutions,” says Rasmus Guldbrand, Vice President of the Corena Group. “We’re delighted to partner with EHT and use EKOGRID in our global service operations.”

About EKOGRID™
Eko Harden and its groundbreaking in-situ remediation technology EKOGRID is fast becoming the in-situ remediation solution of choice of government agencies, municipalities, land developers and energy companies alike to eliminate environmental disasters. EKOGRID electro kinetic oxidation technology produces a controlled low voltage electric field in a polluted area. The technology supports the growth of global wealth and health in a sustainable manner by removing chemical pollutants in both land and water “in situ” by advanced oxidation and enhanced bioremediation. The patented technology has already proven to be an ecological, sustainable and cost-efficient way for remediating the environment across the globe. Visit https://ekogrid.fi/.

Author Expresses The Beauty Of Being Unique

I Am Somebody Special

Author Expresses The Beauty Of Being Unique

HOLLYWOOD, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Never underestimate the power of a person who knows what she wants” – an aphorism that pretty much describes Jennifer Monroy’s passion. In her book entitled I Am Somebody Special, she expresses how her soul belongs to the children of all ages and backgrounds.

Jenn Monroy, also known as “Jenny Foor” lives in Florida. She graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a degree in Sociology and Psychology. Being someone who is able to see the struggles of many children, she has written the book to encourage the younger crowd to learn to see the beauty from within. The unique physical characteristic as portrayed by the story’s character, Penelope the Polar Bear, should not become a limitation to gain friends. She also emphasizes how God made each one unique.

The author invites the readers to read I Am Somebody Special and become inspired and proud of the uniqueness that God made everyone to be

About the Author:
Jenn Monroy a.k.a. "Jenny Foor" is a Florida native who graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a Bachelor's degree in Sociology and Psychology. My heart and soul belongs to children of all ages and backgrounds. My greatest wish is for children to be liked and loved by their peers and those who care for them for who they are on the inside and for what they bring to this world. Physical traits should not matter and children should be encouraged by the community to be proud of where they come from and be proud of any "special" traits they have. All children deserve the opportunity to shine and rise to the top of their class and be friends with whomever they wish. If in the end that person chooses not to be their friend then that is their loss, but each child in this world needs to be proud of the "special" person they are! God made each of us just the way we are for a specific reason! May God bless each and every one of you… young and old and always remember … I Am Somebody Special!

Author Pens An Extraordinary Love Story

The Diamond Maker: An Extraordinary Love Story

Author Pens An Extraordinary Love Story

GLOUCESTER, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every love story is beautiful, but there are those that make a heart beat a little faster as each hand is held and there are those that grow stronger as every soul is touched – thus the birth of The Diamond Maker: An Extraordinary Love Story by Joseph M. Orlando.

The Diamond Maker: An Extraordinary Love Story introduces the main characters; Bart and Angela, both victims of the societal norms. As teenagers, they have struggled and suffered from emotional abuse by their peers and everyone else around them. Bart has a severe stutter condition which led the bullies to name him “Stutter Boy”, while Angela on another note had struggled to learn the English language since her family moved to the U.S. from Sicily. Her difficulty to defend herself verbally made people to name her the “Ugly Angela”. Both Bart and Angela felt that they were not worthy of love until fate had brought them together. Angela found her way to Bart during the lowest point in his life. She supported him in all ways and he did the same. A day came when they both realized that they were stronger when they are together. Will Bart and Angela’s love story last?

The author offers a source that represents love not through the outward appearance of people, but their inward significance. When two people find their way to each other and feel inseparable, they are on their way to creating an extraordinary love. The love story authored by Joseph M. Orlando is definitely one for the books!

Oil & Gas Exploration & Production: An Anchor for Any Investment Portfolio

"Wildcatters” are obsolete; scientists now pioneer a new frontier of security

Integrity is simply a matter of protecting our partners’ investments, a commitment to extraordinary service, ‘following the rules’ and protecting our planet…. Everyone benefits.”

— William Baker, CEO

GARLAND, TX, USA, August 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A wise man once said, “Luck is the function of preparation meeting opportunity.” To that maxim must be added the necessity of expertise meeting experience. Today’s most successful developmental oil & gas companies, their investors, enjoy the benefits of 21st Century state-of-the-art technology, pure science and professional management in order to “get lucky”. Never before have opportunities become available with minimal risk while maximizing profit.

Locating a small ocean of accessible oil & gas, hidden more than 1,000’s of feet below the earth’s surface … among millions of cubic miles of the earth’s crust … is only half the battle. Bringing the product above ground, transmitting it to refineries across 1,000’s of miles, accommodating regulatory compliance, protecting the environment and optimizing market values require integrity, insight and 24/7 diligence in order to generate optimal returns.

Increasingly, industry trends attest to the value of investments with independent, proven, development companies in the oil & gas business. Significant tax advantages, higher potential for ROI’s, less vulnerability to the whims and wild fluctuations of international markets, politics and lobbyists, only complement the potential superiority of these investments as opposed to the stock or commodities markets. Key, however, is identifying the proven and durable enterprises that have survived and thrived despite the inevitable fluctuations in prices and outside geo-political influences thereon.

In a recent survey, one prominent example of stability stands out. Cannon Operating, LLC has weathered the storms of $26 per barrel oil and rewarded its investors with $110 per barrel oil over the past 10-plus years. Although based in (where else but?) Dallas, TX, Cannon and its international investors have found consistent success in its many projects throughout the U.S. As importantly, the fundamental corporate philosophy is one of, “Integrity”.

In a recent interview, CEO William Baker elaborated: “We’re scheduled to have Mustang #2 spudded at the end of August 2018. The press and the public are encouraged to contact our offices for the technical details or any remaining investment opportunities. To your question on the definition of our commitment to “integrity”, I’ll make this brief.”

“Integrity” is simply a matter of protecting our partners’ investments, a commitment to extraordinary service, ‘following the rules’ and protecting our planet: We issue regular status and financial reports to all investor-owners. We also spend a small fortune in knowing and meeting all state and federal government mandates – whatever they may be in any given month. As importantly, we don’t over-react to any transient, artificial, tax windfalls or deregulation of environmental protections. We’re in this for the long haul. Everyone benefits from our vision, commitment to safety and social responsibility.”

Financial Services are behind the global average on climate change disclosure

Datamaran – the leading platform that analyzes ESG disclosure – releases a brief on the TCFD signatories’ disclosure of climate change risks

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, August 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Financial Services are lagging behind all other industries when it comes to climate change disclosure according to a new data brief released by Datamaran. Datamaran is the global leader in Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions for non-financial risk management.

Primarily dominated by financial services, there are over 200 of The Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) signatories across all sectors, which account for $44 billion in average market capitalization. Coupled with the fact that financial services are one of the biggest sectors in terms of market capitalization, approximately $17 trillion, their potential impact on climate change can be far reaching.

In the data brief that will be released Monday the 20th of August 2018, Datamaran compares the TCFD financial services signatories to other (non-financial services) sector signatories and explores how they disclose on climate change related risks in their annual financial reports. The brief reveals a gap between the two. Twice as many non-financial services signatories report on climate change with a high emphasis compared to financial services. [Financial services make up 50% of the TCFD signatories.]

Dr Donato Calace, Director of Innovation at Datamaran commented: “It is not surprising that climate change is not seen as a material topic in the financial services sector itself, however they have the power to influence the market through impact investments, green bonds, and loans. The time is ripe for financial services to take the lead as there are signs that show the tide is changing, such as, the EU action plan or the TCFD recommendations.”

Further findings include that non-financial services are more proactive in climate change reporting. They started to put more emphasis on climate change in their reports a year before the TCFD recommendations were released, going from 31% in 2014 to 43% in 2015. The study shows that financial services signatories are observed to be more reactive. It was only the year after the TCFD recommendations were introduced that an increase was seen in high emphasis reporting on climate change topics. Interestingly, in 2018, financial services saw a 10% drop in high emphasis reporting on greenhouse gases but saw a 14% rise in climate change disclosure.

Three years after the TCFD recommendations were released, the gap between the sectors on high emphasis reporting has been reduced, moving from 31% in 2016 to 15% in 2018.

Further details of the research could be found in Datamaran’s data brief available here.

Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys Focus on Reviewing Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Cases Related to Prolonged Roundup Weedkiller Use

Logo for Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys

Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys focus on Roundup case reviews for those claiming diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma popular weedkiller after prolonged exposure.

I strongly encourage anyone who believes their long term exposure to Roundup contributed to an NHL diagnosis to seek out legal assistance to see if they may be entitled to compensation.”

— Glen Lerner, ESQ.

LAS VEGAS, NV, UNITED STATES, August 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The law offices of Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys announced they will streamline their focus regarding Roundup case reviews for those claiming diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) after prolonged exposure to the popular weedkiller. This decision came after more and more Individuals and family members of deceased have come forward to claim Roundup weed killer is believed to have contributed to often severe side effects.

One such man, Dewayne Johnson, was exposed to Roundup during his tenure as a groundskeeper. He was later diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma that is believed to be linked to his high exposure levels to Roundup for a prolonged period of time.

Based on evidence and testimony presented during trial, a California jury agreed that Johnson’s now terminal cancer was the results of his exposure to Roundup. Product manufacturer Monsanto was ordered to pay him $289,000,000 in damages after finding they failed to warn about severe health hazard, in addition to acting with malice, oppression or fraud and should therefore be punished for its conduct (case no CGC-16-550128).

Glysophate – Dangerous or Harmless Like Monsanto Suggests?

Glysophate is an active ingredient most widely used in herbicides – including Roundup. Herbicides are commonly used by farmers, groundskeepers of public spaces and homeowners alike to control weeds.

Monsanto maintains that Roundup has safely been sold and used for 40 years when used as directed. Monsanto Vice President Scott Partridge released a statement saying “We will appeal this decision and continue to vigorously defend this product.”

Despite Monsanto’s stand, occupational exposure studies of glyphosate have shown a link between NHL and glysophate.

Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys strongly encourages anyone who believes their long term exposure to Roundup contributed to an NHL diagnosis to seek out legal assistance to see if they may be entitled to compensation. Glen Lerner’s Las Vegas and Chicago-based law firms offer free Roundup NHL case reviews.
