Description Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has announced that the New York Power Authority is launching a 15-year modernization and digitization program to significantly extend the operating life of the Niagara Power Project. The life extension and modernization program, called "Next Generation Niagara," centers on the 2,525-MW Robert Moses Niagara Power Plant, the Niagara projects main generating facility. The New York Power Authority plans to invest $1.1 billion in the project. Next Generation Niagara will help realize Governor Cuomos aggressive clean energy goals for transitioning the state to 100% carbon-free electricity by 2040 and serve as a grounding force for the provisions in the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, which Governor Cuomo recently signed into law. "The Niagara Power Project is New Yorks largest source of clean electricity and this modernization project will allow it to continue operating for another 50 years," Governor Cuomo said. "This extraordinary investment is a crucial part of our nation-leading plan to decarbonize New Yorks electric power system by 2040 and will continue supplying job-producing companies across the state with clean, low-cost energy." After the collapse of Niagara Mohawks Schoellkopf Power Station in 1956, and the elimination of tens of thousands of jobs in the Niagara region and nearly 25% of the citys tax base, the Federal Power Commission issued a license in 1957 to NYPA to redevelop Niagara Falls hydroelectric power. The authority employed 11,700 workers and within three years, 12 million cubic yards of rock were excavated. The herculean effort led to the construction of a massive main structure that is 1,840 feet long, 580 feet wide and 384 feet high. When the Niagara Power Project produced its first power in 1961, it was the largest hydropower facility in the Western world and President John F. Kennedy called it "an example to the world of North American efficiency and determination." After 60 years of operation and its obtaining a new 50-year federal operating license in 2007, the Niagara Power Project remains the crown jewel of New Yorks power infrastructure. The improvements will include replacing aging equipment with the latest machinery, reflecting advanced digital technologies for optimizing the hydroelectric projects performance. The Niagara Project, through the state’s low-cost power allocation programs, directly supports more than 200,000 jobs and $17 billion in capital investments. Next Generation Niagara also will support an estimated 60 union construction jobs over the course of the project. NYPAs Board of Trustees approved the major capital investment in the Niagara project, which began operating in 1961, at its July 30 meeting. The $1.1 billion investment makes Next Generation Niagara the largest capital project in NYPAs history. The initiative will encompass four major phases, including a comprehensive inspection of the Robert Moses plants penstocks; refurbishing the 630-ton crane that enables mechanical work at the plant; upgrading and digitizing the control systems; and building a new back-up control room and replacing mechanical parts that have reached the end of their operating life. Work is set to begin later this year. NYPA also owns and operates about one-third of New Yorks high-voltage power lines. These lines transmit power from NYPAs three large hydroelectric generation facilities, including its flagship Niagara plant, and from wind power generation facilities, connecting nearly 7,000 MW of renewable energy to New York States power grid. This includes more than 6,200 MW of hydropower and about 700 MW, or more than a third, of New York State-generated wind energy to the grid. NYPA is the largest state public power organization in the nation, operating 16 generating facilities and more than 1,400 circuit-miles of transmission lines. More than 70% of the electricity NYPA produces is clean renewable hydropower. NYPA uses no tax money or state credit. It finances its operations through the sale of bonds and revenues earned in large part through sales of electricity.

Description An interoperable railway network that facilitates border crossings, offering harmonious, fast and safe travels. This is – ERTMS, or the backbone of a digital railway system. This is the system that will form a unitary railway infrastructure at EU level, replacing more than 20 different national train control systems. At present, interoperability and compatibility are the common issues of the Member States in terms of railway transport. Cooperation between states, operators and suppliers, and significant investment in ERTMS deployment are necessary in order to solve these issues. The first commercial lines using ERTMS were opened in Italy and Spain in 2005, and at the same time, ERA started its activity through the unit dedicated to this innovative system. Seven years later (in 2012), the Copenhagen Agreement marked the first major milestone in developing the system, by adopting the Baseline 3. As planned, ERA delivered a full and functional version of the Technical Specification of Interoperability for Control Command and Signaling (CCS TSI), based on ETCS Baseline 3. With this specification, Europe has entered the deployment stage of ERTMS. In fact, in 2016, ERTMS reached the milestone after the adoption of the set of ERTMS Baseline 3 Release 2 Specification, as part of CCS TSI update. Another important milestone in the deployment of ERTMS through the European plan was marked in 2017, when the set of ERTMS Baseline 3 Release 2 Specification was launched, representing a mature and stable version of the system, capable of solving any interoperability issue. ERA’s Planning and Approval Delivery Unit (PAD) was set up and is in charge with the processing and issuance of Vehicle Authorizations (VA), unique safety certificates or ERTMS track-side approval starting June 2019. Due to the maturity of the system and the necessary legislation, the deployment of ERTMS has intensified within the EC Action Plan. In the implementation of the system deployment plans, in 2016, the EC, ERA and the representatives of the railway sector – from suppliers to infrastructure managers, operators and EU institutions, signed a new MoU by which they committed to determine and accelerate the establishment of the unique railway market based on the Alstom to supply national on-board train control system in Norway ERTMS system, that offers the necessary conditions for uninterrupted, safe, efficient and fast services. Through this MoU, the signatories officially recognized that the set of specifications in Appendix A to CCS TSI represents the most advanced status of the technical specifications, providing the functionalities of Baseline 3 Release 2, Baseline 3 Maintenance Release 1 and Baseline 2. Following the commitments, the policy makers’ involvement and the creation of the ERTMS-friendly environment, in January 2017, the European Commission adopted an ERTMS Deployment Plan (ERTMS EDP) implementation regulation. The plan sets the deadline for 2023, when 50% of the Core Network Corridors should be equipped. In 2023, ERTMS EDP will be updated again and will establish the actual deployment dates for the Corridors to be equipped during 2023-2030. The plan is a decisive tool in planning the strategies and estimating the investments that need to be planned by the infrastructure managers and operators. The deployment of ERTMS is supported not only at political level. In 2017, companies such as AZD Praha, Alstom, Ansaldo, Bombardier, CAF, Mermec, Siemens and Thales signed a letter of intent to support the EDP update, agreeing to cooperate and further engage in order to ensure the availability of the industrial capacity and, together with the stakeholders, help increase quality, optimize deployment times and reach a threshold for low costs. Entering deployment era “We have an action plan, deployment plan and if we approach the cross-border issues efficiently, we will be able to accelerate the ERTMS deployment at EU level”. This is how Karel Vinck, appointed the European Coordinator for ERTMS from 2005 to 2018, started his speech at the 1st UIC Global Signalling Conference (March 2018). The system implementation is more and more stringent at the level of the states that announced the deployment plans. Many infrastructure managers have launched ambitious ERTMS deployment programmes as a basis for increased performance, automation, energy and cost saving. Austria, Denmark, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands, the UK and Norway are leading the way to transforming the railway system into a digital one. Last year, Bane NOR, Norway’s agency in charge with railway infrastructure, awarded Siemens a EUR 800 million contract for the installation of ETCS Level 2 type Trainguard across the entire network of 4,200 km and 375 stations. The completion of the project is set for 2034. For the installation of on-board technology, Bane NOR has awarded Alstom the contract for the installation of on-board ERTMS, based on Atlas solution for 467 trains of 55 different types. The deployment will be completed in 2026. It is the greatest digitization project in Norway, marking the beginning of the new railway development era. Denmark has announced deployment of the system for the entire network by the end of 2022, allocating EUR 2.6 billion for the installation of the system on 3,000 km of lines. Belgium, which has ERTMS since 2009, has updated the strategy for the installation on 3500 km of lines, requiring an allocation of EUR 2 billion, and the Netherlands has committed to the deployment of ERTMS Level 2 Baseline 3 as the unique signalling system on the entire network by 2024, with financial support covered entirely by the state. Germany is implementing Baseline 3, the first vehicles equipped by Alstom being commissioned in 2015 on the route Berlin-Munich, and Switzerland successfully tested the first ETCS Baseline 3 in 2014. Germany has committed to install ETCS on 2100 km of lines by 2023. DB has identified the ETCS installation projects across the network, including the installation of the technology on 1,450 km of Rhine-Alpine. These are few examples of the creation of an interoperable European network, many European States announcing plans and signing a series of contracts for the installation of the innovating system that will be the base for the operation of an efficient and safe transport across the entire EU territory. Huge investment is needed No doubt, significant investments are needed for the deployment of ERTMS. The Member States have provided financial contributions for ERTMS, but given the scale of the investments, the public resources made available are insufficient. For ERTMS, the EU has also provided cofinancing through the TEN-T and CEF programmes for more than a decade to support investment in research and development and to implement the technology on lines and on board of trains. Under the current budget year, the EU has made available funding through the CEF, that was partially dedicated to ETMS projects, and the allocation is provided through competitive funding requests administered by INEA, but the available budget has almost been spent. All requests were characterized by high levels of over-registration, proving the need for financial support to be granted to the railway sector to implement the technology. In this respect, EUR 1.2 billion has been allocated in the previous European budget year, and within the actual MFF, the total amount is estimated at EUR 2.7 billion, covered by CEF and by the European structural and investment funds. According to estimates, a total of 5439 km of lines should be equipped with ERTMS through CEF Transport 2014-2020. According to a working document of the EC, published at the end of 2017, approx. 4,500 km are operational with ERTMS on the Core Network Corridors, which together amount to a length of more than 59 thousand km, representing almost half the length of the railway lines in operation (in 2016, the EU-28 length of lines in use was 116,593 km, of which 53.7% was electrified, according to EU statistical pocketbook-2018). From all corridors, ERTMS Rhine-Alpine Corridor ranks best in terms of ERTMS, thanks to the implementation of technology across almost all the networks in Belgium, Netherlands and Switzerland, projects that were supported by national decisions. The three states have announced their commitment to fund the deployment of the ERTMS track-side from their national budgets and, except Belgium, for freight trains, on-board installation is fully funded. There are also the CEF grants that may be available faster, technology being a priority for the EU digitization and green transport development policy. The investment needed for ERTMS on the Rhine-Alpine Corridor was estimated at EUR 1.32 billion, including the installation of equipment on board of cargo and passenger vehicles, as well as key infrastructure elements. The TEN-T regulation aims that the entire core network of 66,700 km should be equipped with ERTMS by 2030, including the nine corridors, and the global network of 123 thousand km should be equipped with ERTMS by 2050. Approximately 7,000 vehicles are equipped with ETCS. According to EU statistical pocketbook-2018 the EU28 locomotives and railcars fleet consisted of 65,567 units; 94,475 units is the fleet formed by rail passenger vehicles (coaches, railcars and trailers); the freight wagons fleet in EU28 was formed by 405,562 units, but private owners’ vehicles were not included. It should be noted that the decision on the implementation of on-board technology requires that new locomotives and other new railway vehicles, ordered after January 2012 or commissioned after January 2015, should be equipped with ERTMS, with the exception of regional traffic. According to the EC report “The impact of TEN-T completion on growth, jobs and the environment”, published at the end of 2018, from 2017 to 2030, the total investments for ERTMS deployment on the nine Core Network Corridors are over EUR 20 billion, of which more than EUR 17 billion for ERTMS on board and 3 billion for ERTMS track-side installation. At the TEN-T & CEF conference in March 2019, Matthias Ruete, European ERTMS Coordinator since January 2019, mentions that “at EU level, we need to move up to accelerate the ERTMS deployment and to massively invest to have an innovated railway sector. The deployment of ERTMS, together with digital interlocking need between EUR 25 and EUR 40 billion investment. We need to manage the money sources and to identify the way private sector can be involved in such massive investment. EU funding for ERTMS The Blending Call Facility is an opportunity to invest in ERTMS deployment and is an EU decision to contribute to rolling stock refurbishment and ERTMS track-side. Within the next years, we need to from ‘ERTMS islands’ concept to an ‘EU-wide ERTMS’. In March, the EC also launched the CEF Blending Facility with an initial budget of EUR 200 million, of which EUR 100 million for the deployment of ERTMS. “We are investing for accelerating the deployment of ERTMS, which is a cornerstone for digitalizing the rail sector,” EU Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc said at the launching ceremony. Cost statistics are different, but all of them consider necessary investments of tens of billions of euros. For example, in the study European Court of Auditors of 2017 (“A single European rail traffic management system: will the political choice ever become reality?”), it is mentioned that the deployment of ERTMS, both on rail, and on board of trains, is an expensive process. By extrapolating the costs incurred by Denmark and the Netherlands (that opted for the deployment of ERTMS across the entire network) the overall deployment cost of ERTMS could amount to EUR 80 billion by 2030 for the Core Network Corridors or up to EUR 190 billion until 2050, when it is forecasted that the global network will be equipped with ERTMS. It is worth mentioning that 5 ERTMS projects were financed with EUR 75 million through the 2017 CEF Transport Blending Call, amounting to EUR 1 billion. ETCS operational lines (either passenger or freight) shown in green on the schematic map of the Core Network Corridors By extending the call with the second deadline (April 2018), another 7 ERTMS projects were submitted with a total financing request of EUR 88.4 mil, but only one was selected in the Netherlands. The ERTMS Baseline 3 upgrade on-board units (OBU ‘s) Rhine-Alpine freight locomotives -II project had a total estimated cost of EUR 13.5 million, of which EUR 6 million was the EU contribution, covering 45% of the total cost. With all the funding issues, and also the different approaches at national or operator leve, a line was drawn: by 2023, half of the Core Network Corridors must be equipped with ERTMS, and in the same year the core network must be fully electrified. This should allow freight trains with a length of at least 740m to travel at speeds of over 100 km/h with a 22.5 tons axle load. ERTMS is the technology required by the railway system to provide safe transport services and to raise competitiveness to new standards.

Description Preparation for the tender of smart electricity meters by Lithuanian energy distribution system operator Energijos Skirstymo Operatorius (ESO) which is a part of SOE Lietuvos Energija, has received great attention of Lithuanian and international potential producers and suppliers. By implementing a unique public procurement to acquire a smart accounting system (smart meters, information systems for their control and data collection) the Company has invited companies to become familiar with the smart accounting development plans in Lithuania. The event participants were furnished with all detailed information on the public procurement planned: technical specification, procedures and duration were discussed. During the nearest decade, ESO plans one of the biggest investments into the enhancement of reliability, safety and smartness of the electricity and gas grid. “We are preparing for a historical investment, therefore seek to ensure that the process would be smooth. The installation of smart meters – one of the most important goals of Lietuvos Energija group. Contacting with potential tenderers, hearing out their opinion and discussion – is a consistent ESO step towards the grid smartness process. The installation of the smart accounting in Lithuania should create a value for consumers,” told Mr. Darius Maikštenas, CEO of Lietuvos Energija. The goals of ESO 10-year investment plans correspond to the goals of strategy LE2030 of Lietuvos Energija Group – network reliability and digitization by improving quality and automating processes. By implementing the projects planned, ESO will invest its funds; as an alternative, a possibility to increase the share of the borrowed capital will be assessed. During 2018-2027 it will be sought to improve the quality of ESO services, to establish conditions for customers to monitor precisely energy consumption, receive precise bills and save energy by using it in a rational way. Therefore, it is intended to install smart meters, renew information systems. ESO plans to complete procurement procedures by the end of 2019, and to start installing smart meters since the middle of 2020. It has been planned that investments into the programme on installation of the smart accounting system in Lithuania will exceed EUR 200 million. It is sought that upon installing a smart accounting system energy resources would be used more effectively, supply disruptions would be eliminated much more expeditiously. The energy infrastructure in the country will become more attractive for local business and foreign investors. In 2017, ESO implemented a pilot project of smart accounting aimed to find out possibilities offered by the smart accounting system; establish conditions for customers to save electricity and time. Customers especially favourably evaluated the advantage of smart meters when they had been relieved of the duty to write down indicators of meters, and average energy consumption reached approximately 7 percent. This functionality remained for customers also after the expiry of the pilot project. The successful pilot project has demonstrated that it is worthwhile installing smart meters in Lithuania nationwide.

Under the terms of the contract, Tidewater will implement UniSea modules for procedures and manuals, incident reporting, environmental and fuel consumption reporting, risk assessments, international ship and port facility security (ISPS) codes, permit to work, audits, and more. Kurt Roar Vilhelmsen, UniSea CEO, said: “As the requirements for quality assurance and reporting have increased in recent years – due to the needs of authorities, customers and internal requirements – UniSea has continued to focus on delivering optimal software solutions based on a user-friendly design. “We are therefore delighted to welcome the world’s biggest vessel owner in the offshore shipping industry into the UniSea family.” Alwin J. Landry, HSES director at Tidewater, added: “The digitization of our processes is […] a key focus area for the company as we work to improve our efficiency, maintain our industry-leading safety performance and to constantly improve the quality of our services, in a cost-effective manner. “We look forward to expanding our implementation of the UniSea system, as the market-leading platform for the OSV industry, across our fleet and shore base operations worldwide.” The announcement comes on the back of several recent deals for UniSea with companies in China, England, France, Norway, Sweden, and the USA. Only two weeks ago, Norwegian seismic company PGS Geophysical also signed a contract with UniSea.
