Special COTED to focus on agri investment, trade, help for Haiti

first_img Greater Focus on Regional Agriculture In keeping with the theme, the COTED will hold discussions on main agenda item: increasing agricultural investment, production and exports. The discourse will zero in on what is preventing agricultural production and exports. The Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Agency (CARDI) a regional institution, will lead these discussions. There will also be discussions on progress on roots and tubers with specific reference to cassava, the coconut industry, small ruminant and fish and fish products. The improvement of intra-regional trade, transportation, and assistance to Haiti following the passage of Hurricane Matthew, are among the other main items on which the COTED will hold discussions. Policy issues in agriculture account for most of the other agenda items. At a early morning media briefing on Tuesday, Ms. Nisa Surujbally, Programme Manager, Agriculture and Industry, CARICOM Secretariat, provided some insight into the Special COTED Ministerial Meeting. “It’s a packed, packed agenda: We are sure that most of the actions will be when we start discussing trade … We are, at the COTED level, really making a significant effort to improve intra- regional trade. We see this as a must to promote the agriculture sector development,” Ms. Surujbally said.Audio Playerhttp://today.caricom.org/wp-content/uploads/Nisa-Surujbally-on-CWA-COTED-2016.wav00:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.

Pressure vessels are no problem for SCS

first_imgThe vessels were jacked up with SCS’s newly-bought synchronized lifting system.”This system uses feedback from multiple sensors to control the lifting, lowering and positioning of any large, heavy or complex structure regardless of weight distribution, therefore reducing the risk of bending, twisting or tilting. We executed this job safe and much faster than we would have been using a regular climbing system”, Robin van der Stigchel, managing director at SCS Heavy Lifts & Transports bv, explained.The pressure vessels were weighed and jacked up simultaneously and positioned on support stools. 16-axle modular Goldhofer trailers moved the vessels from the premises in Germany to the ro-ro facility located on the river Rhine.The pressure vessels were rolled onboard a pontoon, which sailed to Antwerp. In Antwerp, the pressure vessels were reloaded on NYK-Hinode’s multi-purpose heavy lift ship, Iwami setting course for Korea the next day. “This was a typical SCS project”, van der Stigchel says, “it combined our long experience in project forwarding as well as using equipment in the more risky parts of a process.” www.scsheavy.comlast_img read more
