|Description||Under the proposed project, the PMC plans to construct 11 new STPs of 396 MLD treatment capacity in total to cater to sewage generation for up to 2027, along with laying 113.6 km of sewers and construction of 24 community toilets. After a delay of two years since the Union government’s approval, the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has finally started the process of appointing a private agency for the construction of sewage treatment plants (STPs) as part of a Rs 990 -crore project for pollution abatement in the Mula-Mutha river. The project is under the National River Conservation Plan (NRCP) in the city. Supported by the funding agency, Japan International Co-operation Agency (JICA), the project is being implemented by the PMC. A loan agreement was signed on January 13, 2016, between the Government of India and the JICA for the project. Under the proposed project, the PMC plans to construct 11 new STPs of 396 MLD treatment capacity in total to cater to sewage generation for up to 2027, along with laying 113.6 km of sewers and construction of 24 community toilets. The PMC has invited agencies for pre-qualification in tender process for the construction of the 11 STPs in six packages — 7 MLD STPs in Matsya Beij Kendra and 20 MLD STPs in Mundhwa, 75 MLD STP with biogas power generation plant at Bhairoba Nallah, 127 MLD with biogas power generation plant at Naidu hospital, 15 MLD plant at Tanajiwadi and 33 MLD plant at Dhanori. The work includes operation and maintenance of plants for 10 years. The work has been divided into 13 contract packages that include three packages for sewer and six for STPs, one package for the central SCADA system, GIS, community toilet facility, and Institutional Capacity Building. Of the six packages, for construction of new STPs, the PMC would award work of different packages to different agencies with a maximum of two packages to the same contractor. Pollution in the Mula-Mutha river — the river has a total length of 48 km — has been a major cause of concern in the recent years. The pollution is mostly caused by discharge of untreated sewage. The total sewage treatment capacity of the existing functional sewage treatment plants (STPs) is 477 Million Litre per Day (MLD), while the volume of sewage generated at present is estimated at 728 MLD. The remaining untreated sewage is discharged directly into the Mula-Mutha river. Sewage generation volume in 2027 is estimated to be 873 MLD, with the assumption of a high annual population growth ratio of 2.5 per cent. “It is urgent for the PMC to provide expansion or augmentation of the existing sewerage facilities, including sewage collection systems, intermediate pump stations and sewage treatment plants,” said a civic officer. The 11 new STPs are proposed in Botanical Garden, Baner, Warje, Wagaon Budhurk, Tanajiwadi, Naidu Hospital, Dhanori, Bhairoba nalla, Mundhwa, Kharadi and Matsyabeej centre. Once started, the project is scheduled to be completed in the three years.|

|Description||Electra Meccanica Vehicles Corporation (EMV) today unveiled its new 2017 SOLO electric vehicle (EV) at the Luxury and Supercar Weekend event held at the VanDusen Botanical Garden. After years of development, this one-person, innovative commuter vehicle is now available for the public to experience for the very first time. Fully-refundable deposits for the SOLO can be placed online at electrameccanica.com for delivery in 2017.
"The entire team here at Electra Meccanica is excited to unveil the SOLO at the Luxury and Supercar show," states Jerry Kroll, CEO of Electra Meccanica. "Most people had a good idea of what the SOLO would become, but they will be impressed by its clever design and meticulous attention to detail. It far exceeded our expectations."
The idea for the SOLO spawned when CEO Jerry Kroll, founder of KleenSpeed Technologies, first started developing advanced electric race cars at the NASA Research Park in Mountainview, California in 2007. Kroll was joined by long time automotive friend Henry Reisner, President of Intermeccanica Inc. to develop a fresh, new EV concept and the first Electra Meccanica prototype was completed in January of 2015.
With decades of car building expertise, Electra Meccanica's COO, Henry Reisner, is clear on his impression of the new SOLO. "It has appeal for driving enthusiasts, practical commuters and the environmentally conscious," said Reisner. "We believe the SOLO will become the commuter vehicle of choice for the masses. The vehicle is non-polluting, very economical to operate and people will have a heck of a good time driving it too."
Electra Meccanica strives to be the driving force behind sustainable transport in creating the compelling, mass-market SOLO. The vehicle will make the urban commute more efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly. The bespoke vehicle is not intended to replace the family car, but to supplement the driving experience getting commuters where they need to go at minimal expense and harm to the environment.
The SOLO's purpose-built design took into consideration that approximately 80 percent of people commute to and from work alone in their personal vehicle(1). And with the average daily round trip commute being less than 60 km (40 miles), the SOLO likely won't require a charge between home and office due to its 160 km (100 mile) range.
Powering the SOLO is a 16.1 kWh lithium ion battery and the drive system is tuned for enthusiastic driving. The chassis is made of a composite aerospace lightweight material combined with an aluminum drivetrain which both contribute to an overall vehicle weight of approximately 1,000 lbs.
The SOLO design team used data from wind tunnel simulations to achieve greater aerodynamic efficiency giving it a drag coefficient of .24, which is less than the Chevrolet Corvette and Porsche 911.
The SOLO also comes with a universal power connector which enables connection at both quick charge and standard stations. From zero to full charge, the highly efficient battery system requires only three hours of charging time on a 220 volt charging station and approximately twice that on a 110 volt system.
The AC synchronous electric motor powers the SOLO's rear wheel creating 140 lb-ft of torque and a top speed of 130 km/h (80 mph) for spirited driving on the open road. The single seating configuration provides a fun-to-drive experience not found in any other vehicle and the 82 hp powerplant accelerates the vehicle from 0-100 km/h (0-60 mph) in under eight seconds.
At ten feet (120 in/ 3.04 m) in length, the SOLO is approximately 14 inches longer than a Smart ForTwo and 19 inches shorter than a Fiat 500. With a wheelbase of 80.5 in (2.04 m), a height of 50.5 in (1.28 m), a front width of 47.6 in (1.21 m) and a low-slung, single-seat configuration, the vehicle has a planted stance and a streamlined profile.
The SOLO comes standard with 15" aluminum alloy wheels in either Anthracite Grey or Platinum Silver and they are fitted with 155-60 R15 (Front), 175-55 - R15 (Rear) Continental all-season tires.
For a compact vehicle, the SOLO's carpeted cargo space is ample at 285 liters (10 ft3), which is approximately as much as a Mercedes Benz C300(2) Coupe. This volume provides room enough for an airplane carry-on size bag in the front storage area and the equivalent volume of a large shopping cart in the rear compartment.
Because the SOLO's origins were born from custom coach builder Intermeccanica, we know that interior craftsmanship is key to the driving experience. The SOLO's cabin offers outstanding appointments inclusive of an LCD digital instrument cluster, AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth/USB connectivity, and adjustable seating configurations. Creature comforts include heating, optional air conditioning, window defogger and a ventilation system as well as power windows, remote keyless entry and a rear view backup camera.
At launch, the SOLO will be available in the following four primary colors derived from Electra Meccanica's corporate palette: Titanium Silver, Electric Red, Raven Black and Arctic White.
On the exterior, the SOLO is equipped with bi-halogen headlamps, daytime running lights and heated mirrors for a driver-centric view of the road. Stopping power comes courtesy of all-wheel disc brakes supplied by Wilwood and an electric parking brake.
Electra Meccanica offers a comprehensive bumper-to-bumper warranty package for two years of unlimited mileage and a five-year battery warranty.
The SOLO retails at $19,888(3) in Canada, which is approximately $15,500 in US dollars using today's currency conversion rate. The SOLO is an affordable and fun to drive EV for an environmentally conscious global population.
Irish property group Chartered Land has appointed Galway-based JJ Rhatigan & Company as the main contractor for its high-end residential scheme on the site of the former Berkeley Court hotel in Ballsb ......
|Description||Irish property group Chartered Land has appointed Galway-based JJ Rhatigan & Company as the main contractor for its high-end residential scheme on the site of the former Berkeley Court hotel in Ballsbridge.
The appointment followed a competitive tendering process for the multimillion-euro project. Site preparation works are currently under way, with initial construction work on the basement car park due to begin in September.
Chartered Land, which is controlled by founder and executive chairman Joe O’Reilly, plans to build about 200 exclusive apartments in a pavilion-style development on Lansdowne Road.
The apartments are expected to come to market in the spring of 2017 with more than 500 jobs to be created during the construction phase.
The mature boundary trees and iron railings along Lansdowne Road, which date back to the mid-1800s, are being retained as part of the scheme.
The site was the Trinity College botanical garden from 1806 until the 1960s when the Jurys (now the Ballsbridge Hotel) and the Berkeley Court hotels were developed.
Chartered Land is developing the site in accordance with the 10-year master planning permission granted in 2011. A number of recent planning modifications have been made to make the development more efficient but the overall height and mass of the scheme as originally granted remains intact.
Commenting on the appointment, Chartered Land’s chief executive Andrew Gunne said: “We look forward to working with JJ Rhatigan & Company in delivering a residential development to an international premium standard that befits this unique Ballsbridge site.”
Founded in 1999, Chartered Land is one of the largest property development and investment companies in Ireland.
The company, which has exited the National Asset Management Agency, has developed close to two million square feet of space. Its developments include the Dundrum Town Centre, the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre and Grand Canal Square office scheme in Dublin’s docklands, the Swords Pavilions retail centre, and a mixed-use retail led development on South King Street in central Dublin.
Other projects include the completion and repositioning of Elm Park campus on 17.3 acres in Dublin 4 in partnership with Starwood Capital Group.
Established in 1952, JJ Rhatigan is a leading Irish building contractor, with offices in Dublin, London, Galway, Sligo and Cork.
Its projects include Heuston South Quarter in Dublin, NUI Galway’s IT building, phase two of the Crumlin hospital redevelopment, the Radisson SAS hotel on Golden Lane in central Dublin, the Athlone Town Centre and, in Galway, the Bon Secours expansion.
The contractor has also worked on a number of recent residential developments in Dublin, including the Grange, Wyckham Point in Dundrum, and St Edmunds near Liffey Valley in the west of the city.
Known as Project Trinity, the overall 6.8-acre site in Ballsbridge has planning permission for 490 apartments, 152-bedroom hotel, retail, a cafe, bar and restaurant.
The first phase involved the demolition of the Berkeley Court, with development of the Ballsbridge Hotel to come at a later date.
The site was originally acquired by Carlow developer Seán Dunne for about €400 million at the height of the property boom.
Chartered Land partnered with the Abu Dhabi sovereign wealth fund to acquire the site from Ulster Bank last year.
