MODEC’s FPSO Vessel Recognized by World Economic Forum

first_imgThe digitalization allows the company to better integrate its fleet, making the operations safer and more efficient. With more than 10 thousand sensors installed in each vessel, MODEC has boosted production leveraging Advanced Analytics for predictive maintenance, a digital twin of its process plant and a proprietary data platform to accelerate development and deployment of new algorithms. These techniques allowed for 65% downtime reduction in the FPSO Cidade de Campos dos Goytacazes MV29 from the beginning of the production for example, making this facility a leader in the industry. “We have a great amount of data from our operations in Brazil and, with the help of digital tools, we can anticipate issues and ensure the safe and steady operations of our fleet,” explained Soichi Ide, MODEC Group’s Chief Digital Officer and Vice-President of Operations in Latin America and Ghana. “Processing this data brought tangible advancements to MODEC’s operations, such as the use of machine learning to conduct predictive maintenance in equipment and early identification of problems in our processing plant. This was enabled by digitally empowered people on the platform as well as onshore support team.” The FPSO Cidade de Campos dos Goytacazes MV29, recognized by World Economic Forum this time, is deployed for operations in the Tartaruga Verde and Tartaruga Mestiça fields in the Campos Basin offshore Brazil. MODEC was responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, mobilization and installation of the FPSO. MODEC has also been responsible for operations and maintenance of the FPSO since 2018. MODEC, Inc. on Wednesday announced that one of its Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessels has been selected by World Economic Forum, a Swiss-based non-profit foundation, to join the Global Lighthouse Network of leaders in applying the technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Author: Baibhav Mishra “This recognition honors a long history of MODEC’s commitment to Brazil and our clients in oil and gas production segment,” commented Yuji Kozai, President and CEO of MODEC. “We understand that the adoption of the disruptive technologies and accepting new way of doing things to improve our operations is critical to respond the strong demand projected for the coming years. We also believe that digitalization is the key driver to reinforce one of our important business strategies to pursue the maximization of the value which we provide with stakeholders through the whole life of each production facility, from engineering to operations. We want MODEC to be a reference and help the oil and gas industry to take the next step in the digital transformation process.”center_img The recognition of the World Economic Forum reinforces Brazil’s position in the world’s energy market as a high technology reference in the offshore segment. Today, the country is in the spotlight of the sector because of its prospects for the coming years. In 2019, Brazil reached a total production of over 3.5 million barrels of oil and gas per day, according to ANP (Petroleum National Agency). In MODEC’s projections, the country should demand 20-30 new floating platforms in the next four (4) years. The FPSO Cidade de Campos dos Goytacazes MV29 is the only offshore facility which is recognized by the Global Lighthouse Network. Also this is the first time that a Latin American facility as well as a facility operated by a Japanese company is included in the network. Sea News, January 15 The selection of the FPSO Cidade de Campos dos Goytacazes MV29 as a Lighthouse of the Fourth Industrial Revolution honors the fleet digitalization project together with thorough change management of culture and operations excellence, developed by MODEC in response to its rapid growth in Brazil.

Shumpert Returns; Cavs Dominate Magic 111-76

first_img Matt Medley The Cavs traveled to Orlando Friday night and blew out the Magic, with arguably their most impressive all-around game of the season, winning 111-76.It was the season debut for shooting guard Iman Shumpert, who had been out for two months with a wrist injury.J.R. Smith did not play due to illness, so Jared Cunningham filled in at starting shooting guard, while Shumpert came off the bench.The Cavs got out to a nice start, leading by as many as ten early in the game, but Orlando would fight back to make it 22-20 in favor of Cleveland after one quarter of play.LeBron James had an impressive first half, scoring 20 points, including a pair of layups late in the second quarter which turned into three point plays after drawing contact.The Cavs led by 19 with the clock winding down at the end of the second quarter, but Nikola Vucevic hit a three-pointer at the buzzer to make it 53-37 at halftime.

The beat down would continue as the Cavs rolled through the fourth quarter playing their second unit.James Jones erupted from three-point land in the fourth, putting up 15 points, including four shots made from beyond the arc.LeBron finished with 25 points, eight assists, and four steals in just 29 minutes of action.Timofey Mozgov had his best night of the season, as he has been struggling to start the 2015-2016 campaign, and put up 17 points on the night.Shumpert had a productive night off the bench in his season-debut, scoring 14 points.The Cavs improve to 15-7 on the season and head to Boston to take on the Celtics Tuesday night, in a rematch of the first round of the 2015 playoffs.

Sejarah Singkat Kereta di Pulau Jawa, Butuh 36 Tahun Untuk Hadirkan Jaringan Sepanjang 3.000…

first_imgPembangunan ini sendiri diprakarsai oleh Nederlands-Indische Spoorweg Maatschappij (NIS) yang dipimpin oleh Ir. J.P de Bordes. Adapun jalur kereta yang pertama kali dibangun adalah dari Kemijen menuju Desa Tanggung yang ada di Tulungagung dengan total jarak 26km dan lebar sepur 1435mm. Tiga tahun berselang setelah pembangunan pertama, jalur tersebut pun rampung dan menjadi titik awal dari keberhasilan PT KAI dalam melayani setiap penumpangnya saat ini.Keberhasilan pihak swasta tersebut lalu berbuntut pada permintaan sejumlah daerah lain yang juga ingin memasang jalur kereta api. Permintaan tersebut semakin marak manakala NIS berhasil menghubungkan Semarang – Surakarta yang terpaku jarak sekitar 110km. Wajar saja jika pertumbuhan jalur kereta api terhitung sejak 1864 hingga 1900 sangatlah masif.Dapat Anda bayangkan sendiri, pada tahun 1867 jalur kereta yang tersedia baru 26km, lalu pada tahun 1880 bertumbuh menjadi 405km, tahun 1890 menjadi 1.427km, dan jalur kereta yang tersedia pada tahun 1900 naik pesat ke angka 3.338km! Sangat-sangat signifikan.Pada rentan 36 tahun pengadaan jaringan kereta di Pulau Jawa, pembangunannya sendiri sebenarnya dapat dibagi ke dalam tiga tahap. Terhitung hingga tahun 1888, jaringan rel yang terbangun lebih berfokus di daerah barat dan tengah Jawa – diantaranya, Batavia – Buittenzorg (Bogor) – Sukabumi – Bandung – Cicalengka ; Batavia – Tanjung Priok dan Batavia – Bekasi ; Solo – Purwodadi – Semarang dan Semarang – Rembang ; Tegal – Balapulang.Baca Juga: Kereta Pustaka Indonesia – Cerdaskan Bangsa di Usianya yang SenjaSementara pada 1899, jaringan rel kereta yang sudah ada mencakup, Jogja – Cilacap ; Surabaya – Pasuruan – Malang ; Madiun – Solo ; Bekasi – Karawang ; Jogja – Magelang, dan masih banyak daerah lainnya yang didominasi oleh sebelah Timur Jawa.Jangan dilupakan, hadirnya jaringan kereta api yang hebat dewasa ini tidak lepas dari perjuangan para pahlawan yang tergabung di dalam Djawatan Kereta Api Republik Indonesia. Pembangunan Jalur Kereta di Semarang Tempo Doeloe. Sumber: Twitter Seolah menjadi jantung dari Indonesia, semua yang Anda butuhkan dapat ditemui di Pulau Jawa, tidak terkecuali kelengkapan jaringan transportasinya. Nah, salah satu moda transportasi yang sudah melegenda dan memiliki penggemar fanatiknya sendiri adalah kereta api. Dibangun sejak jaman Belanda, si ular besi yang kini dikelola oleh PT KAI ini masih kokoh – bahkan menjadi sangat maju belakangan ini – mengantarkan setiap penumpangnya menuju berbagai daerah, baik di dalam maupun keluar propinsi.Baca Juga: “Tanggung,” Stasiun Kedua Tertua di Indonesia, Masih Beroperasi dan Jadi Cagar BudayaDilansir dari sejumlah laman sumber, kehadiran pertama kereta api di Indonesia dimulai sejak masa penjajahan Belanda yang terkenal dengan Sistem Tanam Paksanya. Jumat, 10 Februari 1870, Desa Kemijen Jawa Tengah menjadi saksi bisu pembangunan pertama jaringan kereta api di Indonesia.

Browns Struggle in all Facets of the Game

first_img NEOSI Staff Related TopicsBaker MayfieldBrownsfeaturedRavens By Jared EdwardsIt was a very long Sunday for the Cleveland Browns as they get dismantled by the Baltimore Ravens in Baltimore 38-6.Lamar Jackson looked like the reigning league MVP going 20/25 with 275 yards and 3 touchdowns, he also added 45 yards rushing.Baker Mayfield struggled all day to move the offense going just 21/39 for 189 yards 1 TD and 1 INT. The loss was Cleveland’s 16 straight loss in a season opener. The last time the they won was with Jeff Garcia as the starter in 20-3 win against the Ravens.The turning point of the game was a third-down drop by Odell Beckham. The catch would have given the Browns a first down with 46 seconds left inside the Ravens 30 yard line. Instead, Austin Seibert missed the ensuing field goal. Baltimore then went 69 yards in 35 seconds to make it a 24-6 lead at the half.This drop absolutely decimated the morale of the Browns. Instead of having an opportunity to put points on the board, you give up a touchdown and start the route. Beckham had little involvement in the game up to that point with one catch prior to that.Beckham had nothing but a negative impact on this game and I blame that on the coaching staff as much as him. He is a payer that you have to get involved early or he will become disinterested, I believe this happened in this game.To add insult to injury, Cleveland’s first-round pick Jedrick Wills had a leg injury in the third quarter and did not return to the game. Announcers said he was barely putting weight on his leg.The only thing to make the day hurt a little less is the fact Baltimore is probably the best team in the NFL. Yes, the Browns defense is really bad right now but we will get a better idea of that this Thursday when they take on Cincinnati.I anticipated the defense being terrible and not being able to stop Baltimore. I thought the offense would perform a lot better tho. Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt both had good games with 60 and 72 yards respectively but the Brown’s have to keep these games close to be able to utilize both of these weapons. They are also going to have to find a way to get receivers open down the field. The longest pass was just 28 yards.When you are down 24-6 at halftime, there is not enough time to run the ball down the field. I fully expect Cleveland to come out with a gameplan Thursday to run the ball all over The Bengals and keep it close so they don’t rely on Mayfield to do everything.last_img read more

Maya Rudolph is completely on board to play Kamala Harris again on ‘Saturday Night Live’

first_imgNBC/Will Heath(LOS ANGELES) — (NOTE LANGUAGE) Former Vice President Joe Biden announced his running mate on Tuesday, California Senator Kamala Harris. While Hollywood celebrated Biden’s VP pick, no one was more excited than Maya Rudolph, who played the spitfire senator on Saturday Night Live.Even funnier, her genuine reaction was caught by Entertainment Weekly, who was in the middle of an interview with the 48-year-old actress and other Emmy nominees when the news broke.In a twist of irony, Rudolph is up for an Emmy this year due to her depiction of the California Senator-turned-presidential hopeful on SNL.“Oh s***,” the actress exclaimed once she finished processing the veep announcement.Wanda Sykes, who was also part of the group interview, joked “Somebody’s gonna be very busy now” to which Rudolph shot back with a very pleased “Ruh-roh.”She was then asked if she would be interested in heading back to suit up as Harris once more for SNL. “I love going to the show. Any excuse I can get, I love,” Rudolph gushed.  “I just didn’t really anticipate traveling during a pandemic, but if there’s anyone that can work it out I’m sure Lorne [Michaels] has some sort of invisible helicopter that can get me there.”“I don’t know that I’m ready to go right this minute, but it’s so nice to have this nomination be associated with the show because it’s my true love,” continued Rudolph.“I’m so thrilled to even be associated with the show and that I got to go back. It’s like the gift that keeps on giving,” the Emmy nominee furthered.  “Honestly, it’s my favorite place to play.”When asked how she felt about Biden choosing Harris as his running mate, Rudolph claimed, “I’m as surprised as you are, guys. That’s spicy.”By Megan StoneCopyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
