One of the pillars of the World Class Manufacturing (WCM) program focuses on the reduction of energy consumption. The IVECO plant in Valladolid, Spain, which recently achieved Gold status in WCM, demonstrates the extensive range of energy-saving initiatives across CNH Industrial’s facilities that support its sustainability goals in manufacturing.
Battery electric vehicles (BEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) have high-voltage battery systems used for propelling the vehicle. These battery systems require a means of charging them when not in operation. The most common systems use 300V-400V batteries, although some manufacturers are beginning to specify 800V battery systems as a means of improving vehicle efficiency. Regardless of the battery voltage or type, they need a method for daily charging.
New eBook outlines eight steps to help managers select technologies, plan for power delivery and construct charging facilities
OVERLAND PARK, Kan., July 25 2019 /3BL Media/ – Driven largely by economics, rising air pollution from vehicle emissions and new advances in technology, transportation is transforming and becoming more sustainable, competitive and innovative. U.S. sales of passenger electric vehicles have soared in the last decade. Now, as automakers prepare for mass production of a new line-up of medium- and heavy-duty electric vans, buses, delivery trucks and semi’s, smart fleet and sustainability managers are taking notice.
Data Center operators and businesses need predictability in their power supplies. Their infrastructure has to operate regardless of grid stability, weather conditions and other factors that threaten their systems.
Network problems, IT system failures and hosting disruptions are significant reasons for data center outages. The biggest culprit, though, remains interrupted power supply, according to research from the Uptime Institute.
Lockheed Martin is home to one of the largest virtual reality (VR) laboratories of its kind in the world – the Collaborative Human Immersive Laboratory (CHIL) in Denver – where Lockheed Martin product-design and manufacturing teams test and validate products and manufacturing processes virtually before ever physically building a thing.
Their goal? Reduce operator fatigue and discomfort, while maximizing safety and productivity.
Mitigating noise and emissions from new aircraft technologies
Tetra Tech hosted the biannual meeting of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International A-21 Committee on Aircraft Noise Measurement and Aircraft Noise/Aviation Emission Modeling on June 12 and 13, 2019, in Arlington, Virginia. The committee includes leading international experts in the modeling and measurement of aircraft noise and air emissions and supports the International Civil Aviation Organization Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection (ICAO CAEP).
