Mumbai, Maharashtra, Kolkata, West Bengal, India

The Kolkata Port Trust (KoPT), on 10th August, 2015, has sent the Letter of Award (LoA) to a Consortium of H-Energy Private Limited (HEPL) and Excelerate Energy (Excelerate), for setting up a 4.0 MMTPA Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) in the offshore Digha region of West Bengal. “It was the culmination of a tendering process initiated by the Kolkata Port Trust in September, 2014,” said Mr. Darshan Hiranandani, CEO, HEPL.
 
HEPL and Excelerate will pioneer an offshore FSRU operation in India by setting up this facility, where the end-consumers and marketers will book the capacity to unload, store, regasify and transport LNG to an Onshore Receiving Facility (ORF) at Contai in Purba Medinipur -- West Bengal, through a subsea pipeline.
 
Expressing satisfaction on the development, Mr. Darshan Hiranandani commented, “On behalf of HEPL and Excelerate, I would like to thank KoPT for reposing confidence in our Consortium. We believe that our Project has the requisite potential to act as a gateway for introducing an environmentally friendly and attractively priced source of energy i.e. natural gas to West Bengal, Odisha and Western Bangladesh.
 
Mr. Darshan Hiranandani further said that in order to facilitate connectivity of the proposed FSRU to gas markets, HEPL had already submitted an Expression of Interest (EoI) to the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) for laying of a 705 km Natural Gas pipeline, which will extend from Paradip in Odisha to Contai in West Bengal to Dattapulia on the India-Bangladesh border. “We believe that this pipeline in addition to serving natural gas markets in Eastern India will act as a catalyst for stronger trade relations between India and neighboring Bangladesh,” he said.
 
The Project and the proposed gas pipeline infrastructure will promote rapid economic growth in Eastern India in a sustainable manner by assuring supply of a clean fuel to industrial, commercial and domestic consumers in the Indian states of West Bengal and Odisha and Western Bangladesh, said Mr. Darshan Hiranandani, adding that the project will help generate direct and indirect employment through development of all major gas based industrial units such as power, fertilizer, refineries and petrochemicals, small and medium scale industries and city gas distribution networks in the region.

CG to Fortify Korea's Transmission Network with Latest Polymeric Technology
 
Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

 

  • Part of Korea’s Transmission Network expansion and modernisation project
  • Equipment to be manufactured in CG’s Nashik facility in India
  • Fast track delivery from CG by end of the year
 
Avantha Group Company CG has bagged a prestigious order for 365kV and 154kV Capacitive Voltage Transformers (CVT) from Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), the largest electric utility of South Korea and responsible for 93% of Korea's electricity generation. CG won this order beating stiff international competition in a public bid based on its excellent track record in KEPCO, its ability to deliver technologically advanced solutions and the shortest delivery period of five months from the contract signing.


The transformers which are scheduled to be delivered by the end of this year are the latest in the trend of using Polymeric Insulated Products in the international market and the largest direct order from the Korean utility for polymeric products. Polymeric products have excellent qualities like flame resistance, light weight, easy handling, proven ageing resistance against degradation and deterioration.  It provides high safety in seismic active areas as shock absorbers are not necessary in this case.
 
CG has been present in South East Asia for the past two decades and has previously partnered with KEPCO for the supply of Instrument Transformers (IT).  The company has a presence in over 18 countries in the region with active representation in most countries. This order not only reinforces CG’s relationship with KEPCO but also strengthens its position in the Korean market. Since its rapid development in the 1970s and 1980s, the Republic of Korea has become a major economic and industrial power in East Asia. This growth has been accompanied by a surge in the overall energy demand.
 
CG is present in the Switchgear international market for almost 20 years with its largest facility in Nashik, India, manufacturing a wide range of products from 3.3kV to 1200kV in one single location. CG has been an innovator of world class products, the latest additions to which are the 1200kV CVT, 550kV Current Transformer (CT) and CVT, 300kV and 400kV Inductive Voltage Transformer (IVT) and the 765kV Gas Circuit Breaker (GCB). Today, more than 50% of the high voltage switchgear manufactured by the company is exported to more than 55 countries worldwide along with prompt after sales service by trained CG personnel.
 
Commenting on this major win, Avantha Group Company CG’s CEO and Managing Director, Mr. Laurent Demortier said, “We thank KEPCO for this opportunity to collaborate with them once again in building their national transmission system. The high efficiency and reliability of our products make us the preferred partner of national utilities in the development of their country’s electricity network. This order reaffirms CG’s focus in making India an export hub leveraging its value proposition of world-class domestic manufacturing facilities, indigenous technology, customised solutions and high quality equipment”.

BWI: AKP's Viral Expected to Hit Reality Hard as Nudity gets Viral

AKP's Viral Expected to Hit Reality Hard as Nudity gets Viral
 
Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Social media has become an all-pervasive presence in today’s teenager’s lives. It is often felt an indispensable need and even a day without it seems like a day spent stuck at one point without any motion. But what that indispensability has cost us is quite hard to pin down and what social media has pervaded has reached down to something as private as one’s sex life. What the upcoming film of Anand Kumar Productions focuses on is what I would call the idea of abundance in a world close-knit by internet. The movie is aptly titled Viral as some ‘shots of lust’ get or is gotten viral.

                            

The movie catches on a very-popular-among-teenagers idea of ‘sex chats’ where a teenage couple shares some nude clicks, merely for the idea of fun or pleasure. Mostly, it is the girl who shares her nude clicks as it goes without saying how we fetishise the female body. But these less then innocent game of sex and to some extent voyeurism are not that simple to be played by any or everybody. Unfortunately, the ‘abundance’ of social media and an easy access to it has made it a common sight.

The official teaser of Viral is out and it shows a Whatsapp conversation between a teenage couple where the guy expresses his intent to be “too deep” in his girlfriend.

What might come as a shocking revelation to the older generations is the girl’s easiness to it and happy agreement on sharing a nude click with her boyfriend.

Though the official trailer is yet to be released but Viral is expected to make it to people’s hearts as the movie is brutally close to our real lives. Although inspired from true events, Viral depicts, on an allegorical level, the exposure we all face from social media. The ‘abundance’ of exposure has almost crashed us and left us nude (or empty) to ourselves.

Viral is expected to be released on Valentine’s 2016, with the tagline “This valentine, it’s all about lust”. One must be surprised at the knock at reality by Anand Kumar Productions as the movie is expected to depict the breakdown of relationships with an almost-absence of love and an ‘abundance’ of lust in today’s teenage relationships. Viral is expected to hit each one of us with its brutal realism and honest trajectory of a lustful world infected by abundance of social media.
