Delhi To Chandigarh In 2 Hours With New Train, Help From France

Purva Marwaha - 01-août-2017 11:28:27

Delhi To Chandigarh In 2 Hours With New Train, Help From France   SNCF, the French railways, has been assigned the task of submitting the execution strategy and implementation model with detailed cost of the semi-high speed project involving upgradation of the Delhi-Chandigarh route.    The Indian Railways is going full steam to achieve the target of covering the 245-km long Delhi-Chandigarh distance in flat two hours despite many curves on the proposed semi-high speed route. The Delhi-Chandigarh corridor, one of the busiest routes in north India, is slated to be first semi-high speed project being taken up by the state-owned transporter to run trains at maximum speeds of 200 kmph with French help.   There are about 10 major curves spanning over 32 km on the existing Delhi-Chandigarh rail route. The public transporter will not go for land acquisition required for straightening up several curves on the Delhi-Chandigarh semi-high speed corridor and instead opt for slowing down while negotiating the track, according to the railways. The earlier plan was to straighten up these curves to facilitate uninterrupted speed on the semi-high speed route, said a senior Railway ministry official involved with the semi-high speed project. However, since it requires acquiring land for the purpose which is a time-consuming process, railways decided not to go for land acquisition to avoid delay.   In a recent review meeting with the French team, it was decided to avoid land acquisition and instead make some adjustment on curves as much as possible on the existing railway land, he said. However, the official said, despite curves, the target of reaching Chandigarh in two hours will be achieved. SNCF, the French railways, has been assigned the task of submitting the execution strategy and implementation model with detailed cost of the semi-high speed project involving upgradation of the Chandigarh route. The French team will submit the final report with details of cost analysis and technical parameter by October. According to a rough estimate, it is likely to cost over Rs. 10,000 crore with about Rs. 46 crore per kilometre for running trains at 200 kmh, which includes rolling stock and signal and track upgradation on the Chandigarh corridor. Currently, the Shatabdi Express covers the 245 km distance in about three hours and 30 minutes travelling at a maximum speed of 110 kmh.   Source: NDTV,  http://bit.ly/2f3IfBd

Orolia Fortifies Resilient Positioning, Navigation and Timing Solutions

Purva Marwaha - 04-juil.-2017 08:44:07

Orolia Fortifies Resilient Positioning, Navigation and Timing Solutions     Strategic Alliance includes product development, go-to-market activities of PNT solutions independent of GPS/GNSS satellite signals to Military, Defense, Government and Commercial customers worldwide   New Delhi, India – February 2017 – Orolia, the worldwide leader in Resilient Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) solutions, announced that it has formed a strategic alliance, including an equity investment, with Satelles Inc. to develop, market and sell PNT solutions based on Satelles’ Satellite Time and Location (STL) signal technology. STL is a unique space-based PNT technology that provides location and timing data independent from traditional GPS and other GNSS satellite signals. By using STL, Orolia’s proven Spectracom and McMurdo branded solutions will be less susceptible to vulnerabilities – spoofing, interference and jamming – associated with GPS/GNSS.   Many highly sensitive military, defense, government and commercial applications and operations including maritime/aviation, fleet/asset tracking management, search and rescue and data center management require accurate and reliable PNT data. Today, these applications rely on signals from GPS/GNSS satellites SBAS GAGAN or Regional Satellite Navigation Systems such as the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite system (IRNSS). There are instances, however where GPS/GNSS/IRNSS signal strength and security are not sufficient and prone to signal disruption. For these cases, STL can be used as a secure signal of opportunity to complement GPS/GNSS making the application more accurate and secure and less prone to interference attack.   Furthermore "Orolia has provided India with positioning and timing technologies for critical applications for many years. In the field of Search & Rescue, Orolia is a long-term partner with India since we equip the ground stations with the international satellite search and rescue system called "cospas-sarsat", the first generation was commissioned in 1989. These stations are used to detect the emission of distress signals and to calculate the position of beacons triggered in the event of danger to human life. Our aeronautical distress beacons are used by major Indian airlines. We are also being tested with the ADA (Aeronautical Development Agency) for our military distress beacons used by fighter pilots. In the field of ultra-precise time, we equip Indian satellite navigation satellites (IRNSS) with atomic clocks and have been supplying high-performance time and frequency references to the Indian defense industry for many years. Example for telecommunication or radar applications "explains Rohit Braggs, VP Networks & Sources of Orolia. "The strategic partnership with Satelles, which allows us to expand our portfolio of highly robust positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) technologies, is an opportunity for Indian government players (armed forces, internal security, defense industry) and (E.g. marine, aviation, banking, IT, etc.) to have GPS / IRNSS signal curing technology interfered with by jamming and thus an additional level of reliability in accessing critical PNT data, their applications need. "     “In today’s increasingly dynamic and mobile world, there is a growing need for precise and robust positioning, navigation and timing information especially in business-crucial, high-risk and life-saving operations,” said Dr. Jean-Yves Courtois, Orolia CEO. “By augmenting Orolia’s market-leading GPS/GNSS-based solutions with Satelles’ STL technology, we will have the industry’s first truly fail-safe, resilient PNT solution.   This breakthrough offering will be ideal for mission critical applications in which the smallest of discrepancies in PNT data accuracy, availability and stability can result in a network outage, a system crash or a loss of life.”   Based on the Iridium® satellite constellation, STL signals are up to 1000 times stronger than GPS/GNSS which helps to prevent jamming and allows easier signal reach into buildings and other hard-to-reach locations. STL’s additional cryptographic security also ensures the highest levels of performance, productivity and security.   “Satelles’ pioneering role in STL technology is a perfect fit with Orolia’s proven Resilient PNT strategy,” said Dr. Michael O’Connor, Satelles CEO. “We look forward to working together to introduce new products and solutions that will provide our customers with the utmost confidence that their positioning, navigation and timing data is accurate, secure and accessible.”   For information on Orolia, please visit www.orolia.com For information on Satelles, please visit www.satellesinc.com .   A press kit is also available at https://www.orolia.com/en/media-center/news/news-2016/1084-satelles-satellite-time-and-location-signal-technology.html   About Orolia   Orolia is the world leader in resilient positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) solutions that improve the reliability, performance and safety of customers’ critical, remote or high-risk operations.

TAMI Industries’ ceramic membranes are renowned in the field of membrane separation processes for their durability and extreme efficiency

Purva Marwaha - 03-juil.-2017 08:07:47

      TAMI Industries’ ceramic membranes are renowned in the field of membrane separation processes for their durability and extreme efficiency   Specially adapted for the food processing, pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries.       The use of ceramic membranes has increased in popularity over recent years in the various industrial separation processes currently available on the market. Their characteristics of high mechanical resistance, durability and ease of use have contributed significantly to this increased popularity.       Although representing only 10% of the global market, in very many applications ceramic membranes are challenging organic membranes. The main advantages they offer being greater durability, significant chemical stability, complete temperature independence and improved mechanical resistance to pressure. Thus, corrosive products, steam sterilization, high-temperature separations or hydraulic accidents in circulation pumps are easy to control using ceramic membranes.       TAMI Industries’ R&D department has gone to considerable lengths to develop new inorganic membranes. This hard work has resulted in the creation of high-tech ceramic membranes with the exclusive characteristics of non-circular petal-shaped channels. Compared to circular channels, non-circular channels provide a larger filtration surface for the same external volume of the membrane thus ensuring improved filtration performance as well as increased turbulence and reduced fouling.       The original shapes of the ceramic membranes designed by TAMI Industries means they are more compact (patents on non-circular channels), which increases permeability and offers a wide choice of cut-off thresholds - Microfiltration, Ultrafiltration and Fine Ultrafiltration (patents on the layers), high mechanical resistance (patent on the base materials), significant chemical stability (pH range from 0 to 14), high heat resistance (up to 300 °C ), low risk of fouling, reliability and durability (an average useful life 3 to 4 times longer than their organic competitors).       The external dimensions of TAMI Industries’ ceramic membranes are compatible with all existing equipment and facilities on the market that use ceramic membranes. This functionality means that renovating industrial infrastructures is simple, only the ceramic membranes need to be replaced (process known as RETROFIT).       As a result of this R&D investment it is now possible to offer membranes with the best filtration surface /external volume ratio of the membrane associated with control over the shaping of the membrane’s materials, thus allowing very narrow distributions of the pore diameters and a more uniform performance. In addition, investments in external growth have guaranteed the manufacture of the supports, which means that TAMI Industries has complete control of the ceramic membrane production process from start to finish.       This investment has led to a significant improvement in performance and, therefore, increased energy savings, along with lower operating and infrastructure maintenance costs.       There are two separate ranges of ceramic membranes available:-   - A range of tubular shaped products for industry (Inside CéRAM)   - A range of flat products for frontal and cross-flow filtration for laboratory tests (Inside KéRAM).       Currently, TAMI Industries is the only company in the world capable of producing and offering such high-performance tubular ceramic membranes on an industrial scale.       Main fields of application:-   - pharmaceutical and biotechnological sectors - culture media clarification (production of amino acids, antibiotics, enzymes, vitamins, etc.)                   - food-processing sector – debacterization of milk, fractionation, standardization and concentration of milk and lactoserum (WPI/WPC), clarification of wines, fruit juices, cider and sweetened juices …                   - environmental sector – treatment of metallurgy effluents, oil/water separation (degreasing baths), laundry water, paper industries and textile industries effluent treatment…       This list is far from exhaustive, ceramic membranes can fulfill the requirements of numerous other applications.       The Indian Market has great potential for these ceramic membranes since all the sectors of application are recording double digit growth. Tami Industries has been present in India since the past 10 years and is supplying these membranes via partners. The French company is now looking to expand its operations in the Western & Southern regions of India and is therefore looking for partners who can import & distribute their products in India.       TAMI Industries, your ideal partner for all your filtration processes, is looking for partners to help with the commercial development of its products.       About TAMI Industries:   TAMI Industries, designs and manufactures industrial filters (ceramic membranes) for the separation of molecules or particles contained in liquids. It operates in the fields of Fine Ultrafiltration, Ultrafiltration and Microfiltration. TAMI offers a wide range of cut-off thresholds – microfiltration, ultrafiltration and fine ultrafiltration.   TAMI Industries , head office in Nyons (South-East France), is a global player in the ceramic membranes sector, 85% of its revenue being achieved internationally.
