MOSKAU, January 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Forscher am NUST MISIS Engineering Center for Industrial Technologies haben eine innovative Technologie für die Herstellung magnetischer Materialien und Permanentmagnete zu reduzierten Kosten entwickelt. Mit der technischen Lösung sind Wissenschaftler in der Lage, bezahlbare und effiziente MRT-(Magnetresonanztomografie-)Scanner für den breiten Einsatz in öffentlichen Gesundheitszentren zu produzieren. Nach Schätzungen der Entwickler können mit der neuen MRT-Technologie die Kosten einer Untersuchung halbiert werden.

Die Magnetresonanztomografie ist eines der aussagekräftigsten Diagnostikverfahren in der modernen Medizin. MRT-Systeme kommen beispielsweise bei der Diagnose von Krebs, Multipler Sklerose und Erkrankungen des Bewegungsapparats im Frühstadium zum Einsatz. Je nach untersuchtem Körperteil und Klinik liegen die durchschnittlichen Kosten eines MRT-Scans zwischen 4.000 und 12.000 Rubeln.

Aufgrund der technischen Beschaffenheit eines MRT-Scanners gibt es ultraschwache, schwache, mittlere, starke und superstarke Magnetfelder. Die beste Bildqualität lässt sich mit supraleitendenden Magnetsystemen erzielen, die sehr starke Magnetfelder erzeugen. MRT-Scanner mit supraleitendenden Magneten, die die höchste Bildauflösung liefern, sind aber aufwändig im Bau und teuer im Betrieb. In Konsequenz haben die meisten Patienten keinen Zugang zu diesen Verfahren, da der Einsatz des Scanners für die Klinik oder das Krankenhaus einfach zu teuer ist.

Angesichts der Kosteneinsparungen, die sich mit diesen neuen MRT-Scannern mit niedrigen Magnetfeldstärken erzielen lassen und die den Großteil der gängigsten Diagnosetests abdecken, sind diese Verfahren jetzt für kleine Kliniken und niedergelassene Ärzte erschwinglich. Große Krankenhäuser und hier insbesondere solche, die an lokaler Spektroskopie interessiert sind und im Bereich der funktionalen Tomografie forschen, werden auch weiterhin mit Scannern mit hoher Magnetfeldstärke arbeiten. Aber für das Massen-Screening werden sich auch zusätzliche Scanner mit schwacher und mittlerer Magnetfeldstärke anschaffen.

NUST MISIS-Wissenschaftler haben gemeinsam mit Vertretern des Forschungs- und Produktionsverbunds "Magneton" einen Prototyp eines ökonomischen und umweltfreundlichen MRT-Scanners mit niedrigem Magnetfeld entwickelt, der auf magnetischen Materialien und Komponenten basiert, die in Russland hergestellt wurden.

"Wir haben eine innovative Technologie für die kostengünstige Herstellung hartmagnetischer Materialien und Permanentmagnete entwickelt, die aus Legierungen von heimischen Seltenerdmetallen und ihren Verbindungen hergestellt werden, einschließlich solcher, die aus magnetischen Industrieabfällen gewonnen werden. Bei der Herstellung der Rohstoffe für Permanentmagnete konnten wir durch die Aufbereitung magnetischer Industrieabfälle und Verwendung billiger Legierungen von Seltenerdmetallen die Kosten um den Faktor 1,5 reduzieren. Durch den Einsatz neuer weichmagnetischer Materialien waren wir in der Lage, magnetische Leiter für das Magnetsystem eines Scanners zu entwickeln, das bei geringem Verlust eine hohe magnetische Sättigung bietet (über 2 T). Auf diese Weise konnten wir Permanentmagnete für neuartige Magnetsysteme mit einer Gewichtsersparnis von fast 30 % entwickeln und gleichzeitig die Kosten der Geräte reduzieren", sagte Evgeny Gorelikov, Projektleiter, Kandidat der Politikwissenschaften und stellvertretender Direktor des NUST MISIS Engineering Center for Industrial Technologies.

Der neue MRT-Scanner kommt ohne Tieftemperaturtechnik, flüssigen Stickstoff, flüssiges Helium und Wasser zur Kühlung aus (wie dies bei MRT-Scannern mit supraleitendenden Magneten oder Elektromagneten erforderlich ist). Der Energieverbrauch dieses einzigartigen Scanners liegt bei unter 1 kW. Dies ermöglicht den Betrieb mit regenerative Energiequellen wie Solarmodulen und Windkraftanlagen.

Derzeit müssen medizinische Einrichtungen bei der Implementierung der Gegenstücke zu diesem neuentwickelten Magnetsystem in Russland und im Ausland nahezu das doppelte bezahlen.

China ist aktuell der weltgrößte Produzent von Seltenerdmetallen und Permanentmagneten aus seltenen Erden (bis zu 80 %). Durch den Einsatz heimischer Magnetkomponenten, die bei der Herstellung von MRT-Scannern gewonnen werden, ist Russland so in der Lage eine Produktion aufzubauen, die von Importen unabhängig ist.

Die Implementierung des Projekts dient als praktische Übung zum Aufbau einer konkurrenzfähigen industriellen Produktion magnetischer Materialien zu reduzierten Kosten für die autonome Produktion einer neuen Generation von MRT-Scannern mit niedrigen Magnetfeldstärken in Russland.

LAGOS, Nigeria, January 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Leading off-grid solar firm Lumos Global today released year-end figures for 2017 revealing rapid growth and a boost in confidence in the off-grid industry.

Lumos, which operates in Nigeria and recently expanded to Cote d'Ivoire, offers an at-home solar electricity device that lets users access reliable power at affordable prices, purchased on an as-needed basis via mobile payments. Lumos delivers its service in both Nigeria and Cote d'Ivoire in partnership with MTN, one of the Africa's largest mobile operators.

In 2017, Lumos more than doubled device sales from 2016, with total deployments reaching more than 73,000 systems in Nigeria at the end of December. The company also more than doubled mobile payment transactions - with 1.2 million transactions, compared to 514,850 in 2016. And the systems are now available in over 300 stores across Nigeria - up from 86 in 2016. 

The added power is easing pressure on Nigeria's traditional power grid - the projected combined wattage from Lumos systems has increased from 2 MW to 5.6 MW this calendar year. At 80W per system, Lumos systems are some of the largest in the off-grid solar industry, 5-10 times larger than offerings of most providers. Due to the greater electricity offering, Lumos has installed more generation capacity than otherwise seen in the industry.

Lumos' 2017 growth came on the back of securing the off-grid solar industry's largest ever investment in December 2016, totaling $90m, which allowed the company to build the infrastructure needed to grow in Nigeria and expand its footprint in the region. 

The significant milestones reached in 2017 mean that more than 300,000 people across Nigeria are now benefitting from Lumos' affordable, safe, clean electricity. Similar impact and swift growth is anticipated in the Ivory Coast as well, as the country is home to millions of underserved energy customers.

 "What we are experiencing now is a second mobile revolution in Africa," said Nir Marom, Lumos Co-founder and President. "There's no question that demand for our product is mammoth in Nigeria, but beyond Nigeria, there are hundreds of millions of people across the continent who also lack access to power and need solutions. Our goal is to reach them and provide affordable, reliable, clean electricity."

4.24 MWp solar plant in the province of Mersin is one of the largest rooftop installations to date

Bad Staffelstein / Germany, January 15, 2017 – The Turkish subsidiary of IBC SOLAR AG, a global leader in photovoltaic systems and energy storage, has commissioned a turn-key solar energy project with a total capacity of 4.24 MWp in the province of Mersin. The project is one of the largest rooftop installations in Turkey and is setting quality standards for this type of PV installation. The plant has already been handed over to Tiryaki Agro Company, a sector leader for the processing of grains, seeds and other agricultural products.

Hakan Daltaban, the Managing Partner of IBC SOLAR Turkey, stated: "We are proud to be part of one of Turkey's largest commercial rooftop solar projects. In this sense, we extend our gratitude to the Tiryaki Agro company, who preferred us in their tender". The Tiryaki PV plant can be considered as a pioneering project: In near future, large-scale rooftop PV projects will become more important in Turkey, especially regarding increasing prices for electricity and the options of commercial solar self-consumption.

The project's design and installation was carried out by Turkish and German engineers under the technical controllership of the Fraunhofer ISE Institute. In addition, the project partner Deloitte provided commercial consulting during the tender phase.

Regarding the technical challenges in designing and installing the PV power plant, Bülent Yildiz, one of IBC SOLAR Turkey's General Managers, says: "The membrane sections of the roofs underwent special construction. Therefore, procedures like drilling and screwing were not applied and the PV plant was installed without penetrating the roof skin”. In addition, a significant number of modules was constructed in an East-West orientation, which means that only a minimum ballast is required in the peripheral areas. This demonstrates an advantage in terms of the diminishing static reserves of industrial buildings. Furthermore, the system’s  orientation allows optimal use of the available roof surface. To guarantee highest standards during the whole process, the project was run under the sensitive controllership of the Fraunhofer ISE Institute from start to hand-over.

The now commissioned 4.24 MWp represent the project's first phase. The entire project amounts to a total of 15.6 MWp, roof-mounted and ground-mounted.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the Historic Vehicle Association (HVA) announced that the 1968 Mustang Fastback, serial #8R02S125559 from the movie Bullitt (1968) was recorded as the twenty-first automobile on the National Historic Vehicle Register.

This program is a partnership between the HVA and U.S. Department of the Interior, Historic American Engineering Record and the archives of the Library of Congress.  Sean Kiernan of Nashville, Tennessee is the owner of the "Bullitt" car.  It was revealed to the public along with the new Ford Mustang Bullitt at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the iconic movie.

The Real Deal

The movie Bullitt was the first film produced for Warner Brothers by Steve McQueen's Solar Productions.  Actor Steve McQueen, known for his love of motorcycles and fast cars, was hell-bent on bringing real action to the screen.  He and Director Peter Yates succeeded with a visceral cop action flick set in San Francisco.  The action was all real in Bullitt.  Real speeds, real streets, with real crashes caught on film.  The Kiernan's '559 Mustang was the "hero car" used for many of McQueen's close-up scenes. A second car (serial #8R02S125558) '558 Mustang was the "jump car" and was modified for many of the film's stunt scenes.

The eleven-minute chase scene was the film's core and forever changed Hollywood filmmaking.

National Historic Vehicle Register

"The 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback ("Bullitt") is associated with one of the most epic stars in film history and an automotive chase scene that helped propel McQueen to perpetual stardom. This was the moment when McQueen became "the king of cool." It was the first movie he created on his own and had all the signature qualities for which he aspired. He played an understated cop, fighting the good fight, against all odds.  What he needed was a car to complete his image to enhance his persona.  The 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback was just that car," said Mark Gessler, President of the Historic Vehicle Association.

"From our vantage point it is among the most important automotive artifacts of the twentieth century.  It has the incredible combination of Hollywood royalty and decades of an honest family's ownership and the secret that engulfed its mystery.  As it is revealed today, it marks a moment on this 50th anniversary for America to look back at a time when McQueen and a 1968 Mustang Fastback could captivate popular culture."

The HVA's historic documentation program of the 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback ("Bullitt") has been underwritten in part through the generous support of Ford Motor Company, Hagerty, Shell, Pennzoil, LKQ Corporation, American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers, and The NB Center for American Automotive Heritage.

Owner Sean Kiernan tells the story as follows:

"For 44 years, our family has owned the Bullitt movie Mustang – serial number '559.  There were two Bullitt movie cars.  The '558 car was the heavily damaged "jump car" which was recently discovered in Mexico. Our '559 "hero car" was the vehicle that McQueen drove in many of the movie scenes.

For decades, our car has been the subject of numerous rumors, myths and dead-end searches.  These stories evolved and took on a life of their own and the car became something of a holy grail in the old car world – waiting to be rediscovered.

Today we revealed the car to the general public and it is pretty much the way my parents bought it back in 1974.  They found it in a classified ad from the October 1974 issue of Road & Track.  The ad was slightly misspelled and read: "1968 Bullett Mustang driven by McQueen in the movie. Can be documented. Best offer."

According to the New Jersey detective selling the car, my father – Robert Kiernan – was the only person that ever called.  We're not exactly sure how much dad paid but it was around six grand.  It was quite a bit of money back then for a used '68 Mustang Fastback.  In fact, it was about twice to four times the going-rate.

My mom (Robbie Kiernan) and dad were both just 26 years old.  They had been married for five years and my sister Kelly was four years old.  They lived in Madison, New Jersey about 25 miles from New York City.

Bullitt wasn't a second car – it was their only car.  Dad took the train every day to the World Trade Center where he worked in insurance.   Mom drove Bullitt to St. Vincent's parish where she taught third grade. The car was never modified – it has a straight exhaust and shook the pavement.  God only knows what those kids must have thought. Mom must have been pretty cool.

On weekends, it was the family car and was driven to Maine and upstate New York numerous times.  It must have been deafening.  There was no sound-proofing because it had been removed for the movie.  The trunk had a huge cut-out for a smoke machine.  When it rained, I have no idea how the luggage stayed dry.  We recently discovered the rear seatbelts hidden with Gaffer's Tape.  I guess my sister Kelly was never buckled in. Dad installed a pair of speakers in the back that are still there.  With no air-conditioning, windows rolled down and the blaring AM radio, those Bullitt road trips in the 1970s must have been thrilling.

In 1977 my dad got a call from Steve McQueen.  Steve had tracked down the prior owner, who gave him our phone number.  McQueen wanted the car.  He was a guy that was not used to hearing the word "no."  But my dad told him: "no thanks, we are not interested in selling."  McQueen followed up with a letter reiterating his interest, saying he wanted the car back and offered a trade or something as long as it wasn't "too much monies."  Dad never answered that letter.  Bullitt was part of our family. 

By the time it was parked our family had put 46,000 miles on the car. 

I was born in 1981 – about the last time the Bullitt moved under its own power.  Dad was an executive and had a company car.  Mom was driving something more practical – a Plymouth Horizon - and I had a seat belt.

Dad was always a car guy but by the 1980s another passion bit him.  It was horses.  Fast cars were moved to the sideline in favor of thoroughbreds.  By the time we moved to our Kentucky farm outside of Cincinnati, we had a number of horses.  Ultimately, the farm became a full-time job for all of us.

I grew up loving horses and cars alike.  We always had something cool to drive.  Eventually I learned the story about our Bullitt Mustang.  It was a car I would come to know well.  While I'd never heard its cylinders fire, I pretended to drive it thousands of miles.  I would hop in the seat, grab the steering wheel and run through the gears. I honestly have no idea how that Hurst shifter ever survived my daily abuse.

After Steve McQueen passed, hunting for the Bullitt Mustang intensified.  While the car was decidedly not for sale, it simply became a project dad didn't have time for.  Gradually, it became our family secret out of necessity.  Dad was now a busy executive with horse racing business interests, but he took quiet pride knowing the Bullitt was waiting in the garage.

By 1995 we moved to a house on a smaller farm near Nashville.  A few years later dad retired and started scaling back. 

I took a job in automotive refinishing.  By the late 1990s my father and I started to talk about rebuilding Bullitt.  We became further inspired when, in 2001, Ford launched its first anniversary Mustang Bullitt which stirred up more talk of the whereabouts of our original car.

Dad started disassembly of the car in our modest two-car garage.  Unfortunately, we still had a farm that took most of our time.

When our father-son project finally started to gain momentum, illness struck – my father was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.  For the next couple of years, we could talk about cars, but not accomplish much.  In 2014, he passed away.  It became a father-son project we were never able to finish together.

Over the past two years, I've worked alone in that same garage to return Bullitt to the condition it was when it was my parent's daily driver.  The engine was rebuilt, aging carpets were replaced, and a new steering wheel added similar to the one used in the movie.  Aside from that it is pretty much the way it was, with the evidence of our family road miles, and the gentle patina that comes from years of storage.

The paint has never been changed.  Some wish it was shinier.  It never was. In the movie, all the badges were removed and the paint was scoured with Scotch-Brite pads to make it dull.  After the movie, it received a generous application of Bondo (to hide the damage), and a single-stage respray in its signature Highland Green color.

The seats, interior, trunk space and camera mounts remain unaltered and consistent with its prior movie life. When originally prepared for resale, the antenna was returned to the right front fender and the movie rear-view mirror was replaced with a stock unit.  The Hurst shifter had been installed by the former owner and we never replaced it. 

The front bumper is new and so is the front valance.  These were damaged when my grandfather backed into the car in the 1970's.  No artificial "patina" has been added - all the new parts can be plainly identified.  The car is honest and that's the way I wanted it.

The workmanship is all mine, as it was mine to do alone as homage to my father and the family secret I had internalized.

Over the last 18 months, several experts were brought in to see the car.  Mustang expert Kevin Marti was the first and he verified our Mustang as the '559 Bullitt movie car.  McKeel Hagerty was contacted, as Hagerty insures the car.

We were then connected with the Historic Vehicle Association in Washington, D.C. for guidance on preserving the car and the related artifacts. They photographed, scanned and documented the car for the National Historic Vehicle Register, in partnership with the U.S. Department of the Interior, Historic American Engineering Record.

We can all be grateful that these documents will be archived in the Library of Congress so that future generations of Americans can see the car, just as it is today.  Our family is honored that it is the twenty-first vehicle to be recorded under the program and the subject of an HVA documentary that they will release later in 2018.  I know my dad would be proud.

We contacted Ford early on, as that had been my father's wish.  Together with the HVA, we decided the best time to reveal the car would be today to commemorate both the 50th anniversary of the year the car was produced, and the 50th anniversary of the Bullitt movie.

I am grateful to my wife Samantha and my good friends Steve Forister, Steven Whitaker, Casey Wallace and Ken Horstman, because without their encouragement and support the car would not be here today.  I'm also grateful to LKQ Corporation (where I've been employed for ten years) for flexibility in 2018 to tour with the car.

I thank my dad, Robert Kiernan, for the years we shared together, my sister Kelly and my mom, Robbie Kiernan. She must be the coolest third grade teacher in history, because she drove the Bullitt Mustang – our family car and a true national treasure."

SHARJAH, VAE, January 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

- Bee'ah ist die erste Organisation im mittleren Osten, die Tesla-Sattelschlepper bestellt

- Ab 2020 werden 50 elektrische Tesla-Sattelschlepper auf den Straßen der Vereinigten Arabischen Emirate ankommen

- Bee'ah führt außerdem Teslas weltführende Powerpack-Batterietechnologie in seiner hochmodernen Netto-Nullenergie-Zentrale ein

In seinen Bemühungen, bessere Lebensqualität im mittleren Osten zu bieten, hat Bee'ah, das schnellst wachsende Umweltmanagement-Unternehmen der Region, seine unerschütterliche Vision für Nachhaltigkeit durch den Erwerb der ersten und größten Flotte von Tesla-Sattelschleppern im mittleren Osten manifestiert. Dies wurde im Zusammenhang mit Bee'ahs Teilnahme am "World Future Energy Summit", der vom 15. bis 18. Januar in Abu Dhabi stattfindet, bekannt gegeben.

     (Photo: https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/628385/Tesla_Semi_Trucks.jpg )

Das Unternehmen gab eine Bestellung für 50 von Teslas revolutionären voll-elektrischen Fahrzeugen direkt nach deren Einführung am 16. November auf, um Bee'ahs unerschütterliches Engaement für Nachhaltigkeit in allen seinen Operationen zu demonstrieren.

Die neuen Tesla-Sattelschlepper, die 2019 in Produktion gehen, werden hauptsächlich zur Abfallsammlung und für den Transport von Materialien zum Recyceln eingesetzt werden. Sie werden Bee'ahs derzeitig mehr als 1000 Fahrzeuge umfassenden Fahrzeugbestand vergrößern und die Transportoptionen des Unternehmens weiter aktualisieren, indem sie den Fuhrpark so ökofreundlich wie möglich machen. Bee'ahs modernisierter Fuhrpark wird weiterhin einen bedeutenden Beitrag dazu leisten, die CO2-Belastung des Unternehmens zu reduzieren und dies geschieht durch die Einführung der neuen Tesla-Sattelschlepper neben den bereits vorhandenen Elektro-Fahrzeugen, den Fahrzeugen, die mit komprimiertem Erdgas fahren und solchen, die mit Biodiesel angetrieben werden sowie den mit Solarenergie angetrieben Booten zur Bereinigung von Seen und Gewässern.

"Wir sind hocherfreut, uns an Tesla für eine Lösung zu wenden, die unsere Führung in Bezug auch nachhaltige Praktiken in der Region verbessert. Als ein Unternehmen, das bestrebt ist, das Beste in unserem Bereich zu sein, arbeiten wir nur mit Partnern zusammen, die wir als die Besten auf ihrem Gebiet betrachten", so seine Exzellenz Salim Al Owais, Chairman von Bee'ah. "Durch diese neueste Investition hoffen wir, anderen den Wert und die Bedeutung besserer und nachhaltigerer Ansätze zur Erreichung unserer Geschäftsziele zu demonstrieren - alles für das Gemeinwohl unserer Gemeinschaften", fügte Al Owais hinzu.

"Als Vorreiter bei der Umweltverantwortung ist Bee'ahs Entscheidung, die erste und größte Flotte von Tesla-Sattelschleppern in die Region zu bringen, ein bedeutender Meilenstein in unserer betrieblichen Weiterentwicklung", sagte Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO von Bee'ah. "Nachhaltigkeit ist der Kern dessen, was wir tun, und bezieht sich auf jede Ebene unseres Unternehmens. Aus diesem Grund haben wir in unseren Fuhrpark investiert, was auch im Hinblick auf ein größeres Ziel geschieht - das Erreichen der Ziele der "National Agenda for UAE Vision 2021" (nationalen Agenda der Vision 2021 der Vereinigten Arabischen Emirate)", fügte Al Huraimel hinzu.

Bee'ahs neuestes Engagement mit dem Hersteller von Autos, Energiespeichern und Solarpanelen, Tesla, geschieht nicht zum ersten Mal. Anfang dieses Jahres machte das Unternehmen eine größere Investition bei Tesla, um deren weltführende Powerpack-Batterietechnolgie in seiner hochmodernen Netto-Nullenergie-Zentrale, die sich momentan noch im Bau befindet, einzuführen. Die Tesla-Batterien speichern Solarenenergie, um das Gebäude zu betreiben und überschüssige Energie wird direkt an Sharjahs Hauptstromversorgungsnetz weitergeleitet, um maximale Effizienz zu gewährleisten.

Die Einführung von Teslas Powerpack-Technologie bedeutet einen wichtigen Schritt in Bezug auf Bee'ahs Zukunftsvision, in der Gebäude völlig durch erneuerbare Energie betrieben werden, angefangen bei ihrer eigenen Zentrale. Entworfen von der verehrten britisch-irakischen Architektin Zaha Hadid befindet sich die neue Zentrale in Sharjah, VAE, zurzeit im Bau und wird bei Fertigstellung zu einem LEED-Platin-zertifizierten Gebäude werden.

SHARJAH, UAE, January 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Bee'ah is the first organization to order Tesla Semi trucks in the Middle East
  • 50 electric Tesla Semi trucks will arrive on UAE roads from 2020
  • Bee'ah is also bringing Tesla's world-leading Powerpack Battery Technology to its state-of-the-art net zero energy headquarter

In line with its efforts to provide a better quality of life in the Middle East, Bee'ah, the region's fastest growing environmental management company, has underscored its unshakeable vision for sustainability by purchasing the first and largest fleet of Tesla Semi trucks in the Middle East. The announcement was made in-line with Bee'ah's participation at the "World Future Energy Summit", which is taking place in Abu Dhabi from 15 to 18 January 2018.

     (Photo: https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/628385/Tesla_Semi_Trucks.jpg )

The organization placed an order for 50 of the automotive brand's revolutionary all-electric vehicles immediately after their launch on November 16, to underline Bee'ah's steadfast commitment to sustainability across its entire operations.

The incoming Tesla Semi trucks, which enter production in 2019, will primarily be used for waste collection and transportation, including transportation of materials for recovery. They will also add to Bee'ah's growing fleet of vehicles, which total over 1,000 today, and continue upgrading the organization's transport options in making the fleet as eco-friendly as possible. Overall, Bee'ah's modernized fleet will continue to make a significant contribution to reducing the company's carbon footprint, and that is by using the new Tesla Semi trucks alongside the existing electric vehicles, the vehicles that run on compressed natural gas and the ones that run on bio diesel, in addition to the boats that use solar energy while cleaning lakes and water bodies.

"We are extremely pleased to turn towards Tesla for a solution that enhances our leadership of sustainable practices in the region. As a company that strives to be the best in our field, we only work with partners that we consider to be the best in theirs," commented His Excellency Salim Al Owais, Chairman of Bee'ah. "Through this latest investment, we hope to demonstrate to others the value and importance of seeking out better, more viable ways of achieving our business aims, all for the greater good of our communities," added Al Owais.

"As a torchbearer for environmental responsibility, Bee'ah's move to bring the first and largest fleet of Tesla Semi trucks to the region is a significant milestone in our operational evolution," commented Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO of Bee'ah. "Sustainability is at the very core of what we do, and the pursuit of this feeds into every level of our organization. That is why we have made this investment in our transportation fleet, which occurs with a view towards a larger goal - achieving the objectives of the National Agenda for UAE Vision 2021," added Al Huraimel.

Bee'ah's latest involvement with automaker, energy storage, and solar panel company Tesla isn't its first. Earlier this year, the organization made a major investment with Tesla to fit the company's world-leading Powerpack battery technology at Bee'ah's spectacular, state-of-the-art net zero energy headquarter complex, which is currently under construction. The Tesla batteries will store solar energy to power the building, and any excess electricity generated will be fed directly into Sharjah's main power supply grid, thereby ensuring maximum efficiency.

The use of Tesla Powerpack technology marked a significant step towards Bee'ah's vision of a future where buildings are powered solely by renewable energy - starting with its own headquarters. Designed by revered British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, the new headquarters is currently under construction in Sharjah, UAE, and will become a platinum LEED certified building upon completion.

SHARJAH, Emirados Árabes Unidos, 14 de janeiro de 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

  • A Bee'ah é a primeira empresa a encomendar caminhões Tesla Semi no Oriente Médio
  • 50 caminhões elétricos Tesla Semi chegarão às estradas dos Emirados Árabes Unidos a partir de 2020
  • A Bee'ah também está incorporando a tecnologia líder mundial de baterias Powerpack da Tesla à sua magnífica sede com consumo zero de energia

Em consonância com seus esforços para promover melhor qualidade de vida no Oriente Médio, a Bee'ah, uma das empresas de gestão ambiental que mais crescem na região, corroborou sua visão sólida de sustentabilidade ao adquirir a primeira e maior frota de caminhões Tesla Semi no Oriente Médio. O anúncio foi feito no âmbito da participação da Bee'ah na "World Future Energy Summit", que está sendo realizada em Abu Dhabi de 15 a 18 de janeiro de 2018.

A empresa encomendou 50 veículos totalmente elétricos da pioneira marca automotiva assim que foram lançados, em 16 de novembro, confirmando o compromisso sólido da Bee'ah com a sustentabilidade em todas as suas atividades.

Os futuros caminhões Tesla Semi, que passarão a ser produzidos em 2019, serão utilizados principalmente para transporte e coleta de lixo, inclusive de materiais para reciclagem. Eles também integrarão a frota crescente da Bee'ah, que já conta com mais de 1.000 veículos, e continuarão aprimorando as alternativas de transporte da empresa para torná-la o mais ecologicamente correta possível. Acima de tudo, a frota modernizada da Bee'ah continuará contribuindo de forma significativa para reduzir o rastro de carbono da empresa, graças aos novos caminhões Tesla Semi e também aos seus veículos elétricos, de GNC e de biodiesel, além das embarcações que utilizam energia solar enquanto purificam lagos e corpos d'água.

"Estamos extremamente satisfeitos em contar com a Tesla para uma solução que intensifica nossa liderança em práticas sustentáveis na região", declarou Sua Excelência o Presidente da Bee'ah, Salim Al Owais. "Como uma empresa que se empenha para ser líder do nosso setor, trabalhamos somente com parceiros que consideramos líderes em seus segmentos. Por meio deste mais recente investimento, esperamos demonstrar a outros o valor e a importância de buscar formas mais práticas e viáveis de lograr nossos objetivos comerciais, tudo pelo bem maior das nossas comunidades."

"Pioneira em responsabilidade ambiental, a iniciativa da Bee'ah de trazer a primeira e maior frota de caminhões Tesla Semi à região é um marco significativo em nossa evolução operacional", disse o CEO do Grupo Bee'ah, Khaled Al Huraimel. "A sustentabilidade está na essência do que fazemos, e essa busca se propaga a cada nível da nossa empresa", acrescentou Al Huraimel. "É por isso que fizemos esse investimento em nossa frota de transporte, visando a uma meta maior: alcançar os objetivos da Agenda Nacional da Visão 2021 dos Emirados Árabes Unidos."

Esta não é a primeira vez em que a Bee'ah atua com a empresa de painéis solares, armazenadora de energia e fabricante de veículos Tesla. No início deste ano, a empresa fez um grande investimento com a Tesla para integrar a tecnologia líder mundial de baterias Powerpack ao espetacular e magnífico complexo com consumo zero de energia que está sendo construído para ser a sede da Bee'ah. As baterias da Tesla armazenarão energia solar para alimentar o complexo, e a sobra da energia gerada será utilizada na rede elétrica principal de Sharjah, assegurando assim máxima eficiência.

O uso da tecnologia Powerpack da Tesla marca um passo importantíssimo rumo à visão da Bee'ah de um futuro em que edificações receberão unicamente energia renovável, começando pela própria sede da empresa. A sede foi projetada pelo arquiteto anglo-iraquiano Zaha Hadid e está atualmente sendo construída em Sharjah, nos Emirados Árabes Unidos. Ela receberá certificação de platina LEED após a conclusão das obras.
