DB joins loco leasing pool

first_imgGERMAN Railway revealed on February 2 that it had reached agreement with Austrian Federal Railways to form a joint locomotive leasing pool. An initial fleet of 50 locos is being allocated: 25 of DB’s Siemens-built Class 152 freight locos and 25 of ÖBB’s similar Class 1016 Taurus design. According to ÖBB Director General Helmut Draxler, the Eurotraction pool will be expanded over the next five years, and could eventually total 2000 locos. Rail Cargo Austria has placed orders for 130 new diesel locos and 400 Taurus units, including multi-system versions designated Class 1116.Meanwhile, the Angel Trains/Vossloh joint venture Locomotion Capital has agreed to purchase a further 20 locos from Vossloh Schienenfahrzeugtechnik, augmenting the initial fleet of 16. The second build will include the G2000 design, as well as the established G1700. Fret SNCF is leasing six G1500s, as Class BB461000, and plans to form a joint venture with Locomotion to buy up to 790 diesel locos from VSFT.General Motors has decided to build a speculative batch of 10 JT42CWR diesels for demonstration and leasing in mainland Europe. Almost 300 of this design have been delivered to Great Britain as the Class 66, and two are already in service with HGK in Germany.Last month, Siemens Transportation Systems confirmed that it was restructuring its Dispolok leasing business as a stand-alone subsidiary, Siemens Dispolok GmbH. Based in München, Dispolok is currently leasing 17 electric and diesel locos, and plans to add a further 40 locos over the next two years. nlast_img read more

Springboks make six changes for must-win game against Italy

(Photo by Shaun Botterill/Getty Images)Tendai Mtawarira, Bongo Mbonambi, Lood de Jager, Makazole Mapimpi and Lukhanyo Am are the only players retained in South Africa’s starting XV for Friday’s must-win Pool B match against Italy at the 2019 Rugby World Cup.In all, South Africa’s rugby coach Rassie Erasmus made six changes to the side that started in the 57-3 win against Namibia at the Toyota Stadium on Saturday.Of particular interest in the latest 23-man squad is the fact that Erasmus has named six forwards on the bench and only two backs.Erasmus noted that South Africa wants to have plenty of ammunition for what is likely to be a major forward battle.“This game is going to be decided by the forwards and at the set phases and we wanted to maximise our options in those battles,” Erasmus said.Regular captain Siya Kolisi is also restored to the starting lineup having been on the bench for the ‘African derby’.Handré Pollard, who will start at fly-half, is on the cusp of a couple of milestones. Pollard needs four points to reach 400 career points in Test matches. He also needs 11 points to overhaul Percy Montgomery’s Springbok record of 111 points at Rugby World Cups.South Africa has won 13 of the 14 matches it has played against Italy. However, this will be the first ever encounter between the two sides at a Rugby World Cup.Italy currently leads Pool B with 10 points while South Africa is second with five points.Related “Three new changes” lead China-Africa win-win cooperation, says Chinese foreign minister Injuries force South Africa Springboks to make changescenter_img Nigerians celebrate Anthony Joshua’s win against Takanlast_img read more

Airbus Dorong Penerbangan “Fello’Fly” Guna Capai Efisiensi Bahan Bakar Hingga 15…,Bangkitkan Kebersamaan Antar BUMN, Makna dari Hari Perhubungan Nasional

first_imgIlustrasi penerbangan fello’ fly. Foto: Airbus via CNN Usai mengujicoba program ‘fello’fly’, yang terinspirasi dari angsa untuk mencapai konsumsi bahan bakar pesawat yang lebih rendah sekaligus mengurangi polusi tahun 2016 dan 2019 lalu, Airbus bertekad untuk mempercepat diterapkannya fello fly atau penerbangan formasi di tahun-tahun mendatang. Langkah itu akan dimulai kembali dengan uji coba lanjutan penerbangan fello fly bersama sejumlah pihak, seperti Frenchbee, SAS, Direktorat Jenderal Penerbangan Sipil Perancis, NATS, dan Eurocontrol.Baca juga: Airbus Tiru Formasi Angsa dalam Uji Coba “Fello’Fly” untuk Menghemat Bahan BakarDilansir CNN International, fello’ fly merupakan terobosan dalam sebuah penerbangan dimana dua pesawat atau lebih terbang secara bersamaan dan berdekatan untuk membentuk formasi “V” dalam penerbangan jarak jauh, layaknya angsa yang bermigrasi. Program ini sebetulnya pernah ditargetkan bakal terlaksana di dunia pada pertangahan tahun ini, namun, wabah Covid-19 memaksa peneliti Airbus UpNext menundanya. Proragm fello’ fly umumnya ditargetkan bakal terlaksana pada penerbangan jarak jauh. Tak harus lepas landas dalam waktu yang bersamaan, pesawat yang sudah berada di udara nantinya akan diatur sedemikian rupa oleh ATC untuk bertemu di sebuah waypoint untuk kemudian menerapkan formasi fello’ fly. Bergantung pada rute dan jam, dalam satu airways usai bertemu di waypoint, fello’ fly bisa saja melibatkan banyak pesawat.Selama menjalankan fello’ fly, pada skema dua pesawat (detail skema fello’ fly lebih dari dua pesawat masih butuh uji coba lanjutan), antar mereka akan dibatasi jarak masksimal 3km (1.5nm) dan pesawat yang berada di belakang akan memposisikan di bawah leader (pesawat yang ada di depan) di ketinggian 304 meter (1.000 kaki). Dalam perjalanan menuju bandara tujuan, leader yang akan memimpin komunikasi dengan ATC.Nantinya, pesawat yang berada di belakang akan menikmati updraft atau hentakan ke atas (biasa juga disebut vertical draft) efek dari wingtip vortex yang dihasilkan pesawat yang berada di depan. Sehingga, pesawat tak perlu mengeluarkan tenaga ekstra dan pada akhirnya membuat penerbangan jadi jauh lebih hemat bahan bakar.Fello’ fly AIrbus. Foto: Airbus via CNNSelama fello’ fly, untuk mendapati hasil yang lebih maksimal dan aman, pesawat perlu didukung oleh teknologi autopilot yang ajeg untuk mempertahankan posisi, baik ketinggian maupun jarak antar pesawat, serta menghindari efek wake energy retrieval yang berlebihan.Pada prinsipnya, fello’ fly akan membuat penerbangan jarak jauh lebih efisien hingga 5-15 persen. Namun, dengan memperpendek jarak antar pesawat menjadi 1.5 nm (Nautical Miles), jauh lebih kecil dari batas 5nm atau sembilan kilometer yang ditetapkan oleh FAA saat ini, ruang udara yang bisa dijajaki pesawat jadi lebih luas.Baca juga: Pesawat Punya Kecepatan Jelajah dan Kecepatan Maksimum, Apa Bedanya?Hal itu tentu bagus mengingat IATA telah memprediksi bahwa jumlah penumpang yang bepergian melalui udara akan mencapai 8,2 miliar pada tahun 2037 atau terjadi peningkatan sekitar 3,5 persen per tahun hingga 2037.Bila saat ini saja 40,3 juta penerbangan dan mengalami lonjakan sekitar 3,5 persen per tahun, bisa dibayangkan, berapa banyak penerbangan yang akan terjadi di tahun 2037 dan di tahun-tahun selanjutnya? Luas langit tentu sudah paten, namun, jarak aman antar pesawat, termasuk jarak saat lepas landas, taxing, dan lain sebagainya antara satu pesawat dengan pesawat lainnya masih bisa diubah untuk mendukung banyaknya perjalanan udara di masa mendatang.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedAirbus Tiru Formasi Angsa dalam Uji Coba “Fello’Fly” untuk Menghemat Bahan Bakar17/03/2020In “Analisa Angkutan”Pesawat Punya Kecepatan Jelajah dan Kecepatan Maksimum, Apa Bedanya?10/09/2020In “Analisa Angkutan”Pertama di Dunia, Airbus A350-1000 Berhasil Lepas Landas, Landing, dan Taxi Otomatis!

From Longhorn to Bull: Strong is new South Florida coach

first_imgIn this Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014 file photo, Texas new head football coach Charlie Strong speaks to fans during a timeout against Oklahoma in the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in Austin, Texas. (AP Photo/Austin American- Statesman, Ricardo B. Brazziell)Three weeks after being fired by Texas, Charlie Strong was hired Sunday to be the coach at South Florida, returning to a region where he has deep roots and a conference where he has won championships.Strong was fired by Texas on Nov. 26, the day after coaching his final game with the Longhorns. At No. 25 USF, he replaces Willie Taggart, who left the Tampa school to become coach at Oregon just a few days ago.“Charlie is a tremendous leader and mentor for our student-athletes and a widely-respected coach with a resume full of achievements at the highest levels of college football,” USF athletic director Mark Harlan said in a statement. “He combines a drive to win with great integrity and deep, long-standing connections in the state of Florida. The future of USF football is very bright under his direction.”The Bulls went 10-2 this season and finished second in the American Athletic Conference East division to league champion Temple.Strong was 16-21 with no winning seasons in three years at Texas after replacing Mack Brown. Before going to Texas, Strong was 37-15 in four years at Louisville (2010-13), including 23-3 in the final two seasons.The Cardinals were in the Big East/American Athletic Conference when Strong was coach and they won at least a share of two league championships.The 56-year-old Strong has deep roots coaching in the state of Florida. He did three stints covering 13 seasons as an assistant coach at the University of Florida under Steve Spurrier, Ron Zook and Urban Meyer, mostly as defensive coordinator. He was also defensive coordinator at South Carolina from 1999-2002.“Some of the best football talent in the country is right here in the Bay Area and throughout the state of Florida, and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to work with the young men in the USF football program and build on the strong foundation already in place,” Strong said in a statement.___More college football at http://collegefootball.ap.org/___Follow Ralph D.

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea: Cesc Fabregas quiet on return to the Emirates Stadium

first_imgChelsea players celebrated as a goalless draw against London rivals Arsenal took them closer to the Premier League title. 26/04/2015 Fabregas, and another ex-Blaugrana, Alexis Sanchez, were both quiet, although Arsenal fans weren’t when it came to dealing with the former. Referee Michael Oliver decided not to award any of them, and it led to a frantic finale, where Danny Welbeck fluffed his lines to waste Arsenal’s best chance of the game. Sport EN Ospina was lucky not to be sent off in the first half, coming flying out of his goal and taking out Oscar, who had flicked the ball over him. At the other end Arsenal appealed for a spot kick of their own when the ball hit Gary Cahill on the arm, but it was from close range and the defender didn’t know much about it.  Football wise, there was little, and Mourinho was happy with that. CEST Upd. at 20:21 center_img The Blues wanted three penalties in the first half, while Arsenal claimed they deserved one. The Brazilian had an earlier shout for a penalty, but it would have been a little harsh on Hector Bellerin, who gave him a gentle shove. Thibaut Courtois and David Ospina barely had a save to make, although they spent a lot of the game with their hearts in their mouths – it was that sort of match. This might not be beautiful but it’s certainly effective, and it should see Chelsea win their fifth Premier League title.  Former Barcelona star Fabregas wanted a penalty too, when he was tripped by Santi Cazorla, but still, nothing doing. It was as if the Blues boss had allowed his team to go out in the first half looking for a goal, but failing to find it he shut up shop in the second. Arsenal are the only side who really had a hope of overtaking Chelsea at the top, so the Blues were happy to take a point from this one, and they did, in classic Jose Mourinho fashion. He was substituted at the end of the game and although there were a lot of boos, some parts of the Emirates applauded the man who had been such an important part of their sides in the mid 00s.last_img read more

NADO Leaders Advance Urgent Reforms in Wake of Second McLaren Report

first_img“With the best interests of clean athletes at heart, it is our hope that these proposals will help sport move past these dark times and pave a path towards a brighter future – one where the promise of clean competition is fulfilled.” said the leaders in a joint statement. “But in order to do so, steps must be taken, and it is imperative that those responsible for Russia’s state-supported system are held accountable, that calls for a truly independent anti-doping model are finally heeded and those athletes affected by this abhorrent behavior are given back at least some of what was taken from them.”Meeting for the third time in six months, the NADO leadership group once again reaffirmed commitment to the Copenhagen Reform Proposals, a series of urgent reforms brought forth last August following the release of the initial McLaren Report, while calling on the international sport community to bolster anti-doping efforts and restore athlete’s faith in fair competition around the globe.With new, irrefutable evidence of Russia’s institutionalised doping system uncovered by McLaren and his team, the leadership group has called for the exclusion of Russian sport organisations from all international competition until the sport and anti-doping systems in Russia are brought into full compliance with the World Anti-Doping Code.However, in line with the approach taken by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), and with the understanding that there may be some Russian athletes who have been subject to the robust anti-doping practices of other countries, the leadership group has offered to help in applying standardised criteria by which athletes can be assessed in order to compete as neutrals.The leaders have also called for IFs and other major event organisers to remove all international competitions currently set to take place in Russia, as well as a moratorium on awarding any new competitions to the country.In an attempt to prevent the type of malfeasance seen in Russia, NADO leaders advocate for a more independent global anti-doping model. The leadership group re-affirms its position that all anti-doping organisations, including the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), should be independent and adopt the necessary reforms, including a proposal that no decision-maker within an anti-doping organisation hold a policy-making position within a sport or event organiser.While there was continued recognition of the value in maintaining close collaboration with sport – especially in regard to anti-doping education, funding and intelligence sharing – the leaders stand firm that investigatory, testing and results management functions be separate from sports organisations. These reforms would help prevent the inherent conflict of interest that exists when a sports organisation is tasked with both promoting and policing itself.NADO leaders also recognise the need for a system of checks and balances with greater transparency for anti-doping efforts in international sport. International athletes should be subject to harmonised and robust testing from independent national anti-doping organisations and anti-doping organisations overseen by WADA in order to ensure fairness.Lastly, with many IF’s now facing extensive evidence of doping and cover-ups following the publication of McLaren’s efforts, the NADO leaders look to WADA, the global regulator, to monitor and act – as required by the Code and UNESCO Treaty Against Doping in Sport – to ensure evidence is investigated and appropriate consequences are applied.While those affected athletes can never reclaim the moments that were stolen from them, the international community must do everything in its power to honor these victims and ensure justice for them. Including, if it is the athlete’s wish, the opportunity to have a formal medal ceremony conducted at the Olympic Games or World Championship following the approval of medal re-allocation.Former Irish international race walker Olive Loughnane was one of those affected athletes, having seen her 2009 World Championship medal upgraded from silver to gold in 2016. Today she backed the NADOs work in bringing about change to the anti-doping system: “As an athlete, I was shocked and appalled following the revelations in the McLaren Report that those tasked with the protection of clean athletes and the integrity of sport were in fact aiding and abetting deception of a seismic nature. I welcome the important work of the National Anti-Doping Organisations and their calls for reform. Strong action needs to be taken to ensure a message is sent out to all that doping in sport is completely unacceptable.”The proposals were written and endorsed by anti-doping leaders from around the world, including: Austria, Belgium (Flanders), Canada, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland and USA.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email Following the devastating evidence of wide-spread systemic corruption exposed by the second McLaren Report, leaders from 19 National Anti-Doping Organisations (NADOs) came together for a special summit, hosted by Sport Ireland, with hopes to restore the faith of clean athletes and to ensure that the integrity of sport is never again brought into such disrepute. Special leadership Summit held in Farmleigh, DublinIn light of the second McLaren Report, leaders call for the exclusion of Russian sports organizations at all international competitions – with a uniform process for athletes to compete as neutrals until substantive progress in reform efforts are madeLeaders also call for the removal of all major international competitions, as well a moratorium on the awarding of new competitions to RussiaLeaders endorse WADA as global regulator and offer support for ongoing reform effortsLeaders reject concept of a new one size fits all, global “Independent Testing Authority” controlled by sport and consider guidelines for development of independent testing authorities to manage anti-doping responsibilities formerly conducted by International Federations (IFs)last_img read more
