VIVACE: A Revolutionary Ocean Energy Concept that Transforms Problems into Valuable Resources

SINGAPORE Nge Ann Polytechnic | 12 May 2010 18:15 to 20:00
Event type: Technical Lecture

VIVACE is a novel approach to extract energy from flowing water currents. For decades, engineers have been trying to prevent Vortex Induced Vibrations (VIV) from damaging offshore equipment and structures. By maximizing and exploiting VIV rather than spoiling and preventing it, VIVACE takes this ‘problem’ and transforms it into a valuable resource for mankind. VIVACE devices have many potential advantages, which improve installation survivability in hostile underwater environment and enable

Branch Meeting and Technical Talk

SINGAPORE - Raffles Room, Tanglin Club | 09 December 2009 18:30 to 21:30
Event type: Technical Lecture

Developments in Very High Speed Rail Transport. In meeting the needs for high speed intercity transport rail passengers today want more than mere high speed. In fact, achieving very high speed (VHS) is now a given. The new priorities in rail transportation for all stakeholders are: • Energy efficiency • High capacity • Customized comfort • Ecological sensitivity • Bombardier is a world leader in rail transportation. This presentation will look at the development of their new VHS
