  2. Great! We're finally going to have cars, albeit electric cars, manufactured in Singapore! The manufacturing facility is slated for completion in 2020, with its first electric vehicle rolling out by Dyson in the following year. You're reading correctly ...... Dyson, the maker of household appliances including bagless vacuum cleaners which it invented :) Good to diversify our economy and create more jobs! Hopefully, it will be able to rival Telsa and serve as a catalyst for more automotive makers to set up assembly plants here! https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/business/british-technology-company-dyson-to-build-electric-car-in-singapore-10855708

  4. It is one thing to adopt more efficient technologies at generating power while reducing emissions, it is another thing to have something with potential to wipe out the entire region when a wrong move was made. Currently, nuclear fission based plants can produce power at a low cost but at the huge environmental impact with nuclear waste as a by-product. Nuclear fusion which is supposedly much safer is still quite sometime away. What's our fail safe plan if the plant encountered a melt-down? It's easy for her to say adopt a fail-soft approach which buys time but can we trust them with it? Nuclear plant breakdown is not the same as MRT breakdown. I know its not a new topic, but when she starts speaking to the media in public, we can be sure its a sure sign of things to come. Fire away guys.
  5. Residents of Yishun Street 81 spotted a 5kg potted plant lodged in the windscreen of a Toyota sedan that was parked in the Housing Board estate on Sunday. The police said yesterday that they received a call about the incident at Block 871 on Sunday at 2.23pm. The case has been classified as a rash act and investigations are ongoing. The potted plant apparently fell from the ninth floor of the HDB block. Source: http://www.straitstimes.com/news/singapore/courts-crime/story/5kg-potted-plant-lands-parked-car-20140603

Grounds for a lawsuit or stinky cheese, depending on how long you churn it. According to the LA Times, a Russian consumer oversight agency reported that Trade House Cheese, a Siberian dairy plant about 1,600 miles east of Moscow, was temporarily shuttered Friday after it was found some of the employees had bathed in the milk.

    Name of this plant ?

    Hi, Does anyone know what is the name of this plant ? Thanks.
  8. Many car manufacturers are finding ways to reduce their products' emission levels. For Volkswagen, it is going green upstream by taping on solar power in their manufacturing process. Volkswagen has just opened a huge solar park to provide power for their US plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The plant produces a version of the Passat that is exclusive to the North American market. The solar facility is expected to produce 13,100 megawatt hours per year thanks to the 33,600 crystal solar modules. The solar power generated will provide about 12.5% of the electricity required when the plant is operating at full capacity. Frank Fischer, CEO and chairman of Volkswagen Chattanooga, said, "This facility is a key part of our 'Think Blue Factory' programme and further proof of Volkswagen's worldwide commitment to environmental protection. Once again, we are setting standards in efficient, sustainable production." Volkswagen's latest commitment to environment might help to pacify the Greenpeace activists who recently protested against the carmaker's stance on the climate outside the Vienna car show.

  12. [extract] Very soon, we may not get Infiniti models that are manufactured in Japan. This is a pity but inevitable in order for the luxury car manufacturer to survive as the cost to build cars in Japan has risen due to the high Japanese Yen. The new Infiniti manufacturing base has not been selected yet but Nissan CEO, Carlos Ghosn, was quoted saying that both North America and China are under consideration. For the readers
  13. Cheaper parts? AFP Wednesday, Jan 04, 2012 TOKYO - Japan's Suzuki Motor Corp. said Wednesday it would build a new engine factory in Indonesia in a bid to help boost output of small cars in the fast-growing Southeast Asian market. The car and motorcycle maker has spent 10 billion yen (S$167 million) on a 1.3 million square-metre (14 million square-foot) site in an industrial park outside Jakarta for its third Indonesian factory, Dow Jones Newswires said. The Nikkei business daily separately said Suzuki's total investment in the project would reach 30 billion yen. The daily also said the investment is part of the company's efforts to boost its production capacity in Indonesia to 150,000 vehicles from the current 120,000. Auto sales in Indonesia jumped by about 60 per cent from a year earlier to around 760,000 vehicles in 2010, the Nikkei said, adding that Indonesia likely became the biggest auto market in Southeast Asia last year. Immediate confirmation of the reports was not available as the company was closed for the extended New Year holiday.
  14. A powerful typhoon struck Japan today, causing four deaths and forcing companies including Toyota Motor Corp. and Nissan Motor Co. to close some plants, company spokesmen said. Typhoon Roke, the second big storm to hit Japan this month, was packing winds of up to 220 km per hour. The storm cut power to more than 575,500 households in Tokyo Electric Power Co's service area. Toyota, like other Japanese producers, has become overly cautious after March

    Nuclear plant in your kitchen

    This guy power xia http://www.tomsguide.com/us/nuclear-reacto...news-12067.html A Nuclear Reactor in Your Kitchen is a Bad Idea10:30 PM - August 3, 2011 - By Douglas Perry - Source : Tecca Tweet5Share Would you have known that building your own private nuclear reactor in your home could be against the law? ZoomA 31-year old man in Sweden had no idea, but was at least in doubt, which is why he called local authorities to make sure. The man, whose name was withheld, constructed an apparently functional reactor in the kitchen of his apartment, kept track of radiation levels using his own Geiger counter, blogged about his project, and eventually inquired about possible legal issues. The authorities had an issue with the project and arrested the nuclear enthusiast on the spot. According to media reports, he succeeded in building a functional reactor, but was far away from producing electricity, which would have required a turbine and generator. However, he did have access to nuclear materials, which he acquired "overseas" and by disassembling a fire alarm. His teenage dream of operating his own nuclear reactor became a reality for the expense of about $950. He was released from jail when he promised not to build another reactor. His equipment was confiscated.
  16. Thnik about it, the world will be facing oil shortage soon, likely the world will be moving to find other sources of energy. It would be unavoidable that Singapore will need to build one Nucluar Power Plant in future ( Can't escape it ) . So like it or not it would be a solution for high electricity price and also to reduce the demand of oil. More and more country will also move towards nucular power plants in future. Well.. looks like no choice of a choice.

    Singapore nuclear plant

    the explosion and fear of radiation contanimation in japan will give PM 2nd, 3rd and 10th thought of building a nuclear plant in singapore. there is NO enough backup plan or prevention to avoid shits happen whether it's earthquake, tsunami, flood, human error, unknown factor, etc http://www.asiaone.com/News/AsiaOne+News/S...102-245235.html http://www.platts.com/RSSFeedDetailedNews/...icPower/8128577 Singapore PM says nuclear power plant possible "during my lifetime" Singapore (Platts)--1Nov2010/558 am EST/1058 GMT Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said Monday that nuclear power is a viable, clean source of energy that produces low carbon emissions, and the island state "cannot afford to dismiss the option of nuclear energy altogether." In addition, while a nuclear power project is not scheduled to start any time soon, a nuclear plant could be built in Singapore "during my lifetime," Lee said in response to a question as to when Singapore could consider building a nuclear power plant. Lee was speaking at the Singapore Energy Lecture of the annual Singapore International Energy Week. Nuclear energy is one of the viable solutions to global energy needs and to tackle global warming, as it is a clean source of energy which produces low carbon emissions, Lee said. Yet, harnessing nuclear energy is a highly complex and long-term enterprise, and there are significant issues relating to safety and disposal of nuclear waste, the prime minister added. "But without nuclear energy, the world cannot make sufficient progress in dealing with global warming," he said. As such, Singapore should keep up with new developments, advancing technologies on new, smaller and safer nuclear reactors with more fuel-efficient designs that reduce the amount of waste produced, Lee said. Singapore could also apply a "carbon price" for energy produced, if there is a global regime to curb carbon emissions, he said. "We (will) need to impose a charge to induce consumers to change their behavior," Lee said, adding this could be achieved through a carbon tax or through a cap and trade scheme. Presently, Singapore does not impose a carbon tax, but the government calculate a "shadow price" for carbon in its cost-benefit analysis to form policies and decision making process, the prime minister said. --Calvin Lee, calvin_lee@platts.com Similar stories appear in Power in Asia See more information at http://www.platts.com/Products/powerinasia/
  18. This is how the engines are assembled by hand.... If you ask me, I feel its a little low tech considered some manufacturers have adopted a fully automated process which is be even more precise than hand assembled.
  19. Is it change the entire exhaust ? then what is muffler ? I kinda lost, if I want to improve performance and get better FC. Which mod to go for ?

    Golden Hair plant

    After 30 years, I've come across this plant at a night bazaar. Has any one seen this plant before and what is the name ? The florist told me the name in dialect, but I don't think I've remembered it. The 'fur' looks and feels like human hair and apparently has healing properties against cuts and open wounds. You can just pull the 'hair' and it comes off like cotton candy. The plant I bought looks like a lion. Not sure if it is a lucky plant tho. So far didn't strike any lottery.
  21. http://uk.reuters.com/article/companyNews/...6?symbol=FIA.MI I quote : "MILAN, April 16 (Reuters) - Production at Alfa Romeo's main plant in Italy remained partly suspended on Wednesday as union workers kept up their protest despite police intervention, said the sports car maker's parent, Fiat (FIA.MI: Quote, Profile, Research). Workers have blocked the entrance to the plant, in the town of Pomigliano d'Arco, near Naples, to protest against plans to transfer about 300 employees to another building as part of a reorganisation. The plant, which makes the 147 hatchback and the 159 sedan, has had to partially suspend production because the protesting workers have prevented trucks loaded with parts from passing through its gates. Fiat obtained a court order to have police clear the workers from the entrance on Tuesday, but the protest has resumed unabated. Fiat has also used a helicopter to bring parts to the plant, union workers told Reuters this week. Recently renamed after Italian philosopher Giambattista Vico, the plant had restarted operations on March 3 after a two-month shutdown for refurbishment. It employs about 5,000 workers, some of whom conducted protests on a number of issues during the shutdown. (Reporting by Gilles Castonguay; Editing by Andrew Hurst) " So , expect more delay on the new 159 etc... IMO , they should move production to poland to punish the swines. it would cut costs and improve quality.

Source: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin.../314761/1/.html Finnish refiner to build world's largest biodiesel plant in S'pore By Melvin Yong, Channel NewsAsia | Posted: 30 November 2007 1659 hrs SINGAPORE: Singapore's biodiesel industry got a boost on Friday. Neste Oil, a refiner from Finland, said it has decided to invest nearly S$1.2 billion to build the world's largest biodiesel plant in Singapore. In a statement, Neste said the plant will have a design capacity of 800,000 tonnes each year. This will make it the largest facility producing diesel fuel from renewable feedstock anywhere. The plant will use mostly palm oil for raw material. The company said it chose Singapore because it is the world's third-largest centre for oil refining. Singapore is also a central location in terms of product and feedstock flows and logistics. Neste believes this will give Singapore excellent potential to develop into a centre for Asian biofuel production. The Economic Development Board will also support the investment by helping with research and development, as well as assisting with recruiting and training personnel. Construction of the plant at Tuas will start in the first half of next year and it is due to be completed by the end of 2010. The plant will be integrated into the area's existing industrial infrastructure, and will make use of local site utilities and port and storage services. When operational, the plant will employ around 100 people. Analysts say the move is positive for Singapore. ABN AMRO Asia Securities' investment analyst Nirgunan Tiruchelvam said: "..... it places Singapore as a hub in the biodiesel industry. There has been a few other developments earlier this year and last year where other companies have set up biodiesel facilities in Singapore because of its superior logistics." According to Neste, the use of biofuels is predicted to increase rapidly in developed economies over the next few years. For now, though, analysts believe the plant's impact on Singapore's economy will be minimal. ABN AMRO Asia Securities' Nirgunan Tiruchelvam said: "The production being anticipated in this biodiesel facility is a small percentage of the petroleum requirements of this country. So the impact on the Singapore economy per se will be quite minimal. However it may encourage other players in the biodiesel industry to ramp up capacity in Singapore." - CNA/ir
