deugro moves DEWA reactor with Al Faris

first_imgThe reactor was stored at a port laydown area on customised stools and beams fabricated by Al Faris, and moved using a 14-axle hydraulic trailer. Due to the restricted area at the substation site, Al Faris deployed a ten-axle PST/SL-E self-propelled trailer from Goldhofer to manoeuvre the component. The reactor was subsequently installed using a jacking and skidding system. deugro.com www.goldhofer.com alfarisgroup.comlast_img

Unpaid salaries for truckers to be resolved soon

first_img Tweet Share 10 Views   no discussions LocalNews Unpaid salaries for truckers to be resolved soon by: – June 18, 2013 Truckers have been asked to hold on for at least two more weeksTruckers contracted to undertake work on phase two of the Melville Hall road project have to wait for at least two more weeks for overdue salary payments. The truckers who claim that they have not been paid salaries since January 2013, commenced industrial action three weeks after attempts to collect their salaries failed. On Monday 17th June the executive of the Dominica Tipper Truckers Association met with officials from the Ministry of Public Works including Public Works Minister Rayburn Blackmoore, permanent secretary in the Ministry of Public Works Lucienne Blackmoore and senior engineer Emile Lancelot.At that meeting they were informed that all funds for of the project have been exhausted.However, according to vice president of the Association Malcolm Reid, they were asked to “hold on for at least the end of this month” and assured that arrangement for additional funding for the project is being sought. Mr Reid explained the difficulty in obtaining payment is that the invoices must be sent to Martinique and that takes some time.“We would have had to go through the various agencies here through the consultant, etc., and then the documents would have been forwarded to Martinique where it would spend a long time – Martinique was the problem, then from Martinique to France then back to Martinique then come back to Dominica”, he explained. Contractor Jacques Ghardakhan is charged with the responsibility to pay to the truckers and not the government. Mr Reid stated that the new payment arrangements will allow for tranches of money to be logged in a bank in Dominica.“So when we have work and made our claims once we have satisfied the consultants or the contractors, then the funds will already be in Dominica for payment,” he explained. He also called on Mr Ghardakhan’s project manager to treat Dominican truckers fairly.“Jacques Ghardakhan’s project manager seems to have a beef with Dominican truckers and little petty personalities, and withholds information from us and does arbitrary stuff,” he said.Therefore, the Association will be meeting sometime today and tomorrow to discuss how this could be dealt with. He added that they will not condone any behavior that would cause problems for the Association and its members. “Some of us our loans have gone into arrears, we owe for tires and all kind of things so now that this thing is being fixed up”.He also noted that the meeting with Public Works officials went well and they “are happy it is resolving itself”. Meanwhile, president of the Association Earl Laudat said he is confident that government will resolve the matter in the quickest possible time. “The Minister at least set the cards on table. He was very unhappy that we have not gotten paid from since January. It was some sort of disbelief to everybody but that is the reality about it,” he noted.Mr said he clearly understands that the problem is not that of the government but that of the funding agency and contractor and called on Mr Ghardakhan to meet with truckers soon to discuss new working arrangements.

Mahmudullah ton; spinners put Bangladesh in command

first_imgDHAKA, Bangladesh (CMC) – Beleaguered West Indies were left needing a miracle to avoid a historic series defeat after yet again failing to survive a trial by spin, as Bangladesh took a stranglehold on the second and final Test after completely dominating the second day here yesterday.Behind Mahmudullah’s career-best 136, captain Shakib-al-Hasan’s 80 and an attacking 54 from Liton Das, Bangladesh piled up a mammoth 508 – their second highest-ever total against West Indies – before the innings folded half-hour after tea at the Shere Bangla National Stadium.Off-spinner Mehidy Hasan then snatched three for 36 while Shakib supported with two for 15 with his left-arm spin, to leave the West Indies innings in strife at 29 for five.It was left to rookie left-hander Shimron Hetmyer with an unbeaten 32 and wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich, on 17 not out, to save West Indies from total embarrassment and guide the innings to the close on 75 for five.The pair have so far added a gutsy 46 in an unbroken sixth-wicket stand and with the Windies still trailing by 433 runs, much will lie on their shoulders on today’s day three as the last recognised batsmen.Having suffered at the hands of the Bangladeshi spinners during their first Test defeat in Chittagong last weekend, West Indies fared little better in their attempt at redemption, as they were once again mesmerised by the slower bowlers.All five dismissals were bowled, marking the first time in 128 years bowlers had achieved the feat.Stand-in captain Kraigg Brathwaite’s wretched run continued when he fell to the sixth ball of the innings, bowled through the gate by Shakib without a run on the board.His left-handed opening partner Kieran Powell survived 15 deliveries before he too followed in similar fashion, bowled between bat and pad by Mehidy for four and Sunil Ambris’s charge at Shakib was as desperate as it was ambitious, as he missed the drive and was also bowled, for seven.Three balls later in the next over, Shai Hope’s 30-ball grind over 10 came to an end when he became the fourth bowled victim of the innings by one from Mehidy which crept from back of a length and hit the base of off-stump.When Roston Chase played down the wrong line first ball and lost his off-stump to Mehidy, West Indies were falling apart spectacularly.But as they did in the first Test, Hetmyer and Dowrich once again came to the Caribbean side’s rescue, resisting the Bangladeshi spin assault for the remainder of the session.The 21-year-old Hetmyer has so far struck three fours in a typically breezy 43-ball innings while Dowrich has opted for the sheet anchor role in a knock that has lasted 37 balls and included a single boundary.Hetmyer suffered a scare on 10 when he was adjudged lbw to 17-year-old off-spinner Nayeem Hasan before finding a reprieve courtesy DRS. He carried on seemingly unfazed, however, using his feet to the spinners and finding boundaries down the ground.Earlier, West Indies bowlers toiled in frustration as Bangladesh, starting the day on 259 for five, batted themselves into a near impregnable position.Mahmudullah, unbeaten on 31 at the start, produced a magnificent innings which spanned 6-¼ hours, 242 deliveries and included 10 fours.Pivotally, he stretched his overnight sixth-wicket stand with Shakib to 111, keeping West Indies without any early success and seeing Bangladesh past the 300-run mark.The left-handed Shakib played freely after resuming on 55, taking three consecutive boundaries off off-spinner Chase in the morning’s fourth over, before falling three overs later when he edged a loose drive at seamer Kemar Roach (2-61) and was caught at gully.That breakthrough failed to improve the Windies fortunes as Mahmudullah and Das combined in a 92-run, seventh-wicket partnership, which propelled Bangladesh to lunch on 387 for six.Das played with abandon, striking eight fours and a six in a 62-ball cameo, reaching lunch on 53 before finally perishing in the fourth over afterwards, bowled by off-spinner Brathwaite (2-57) missing a sweep.While Mehidy followed soon afterwards for 11, caught at the wicket off left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican (2-91), Mahmudullah provided even more pain for the Windies by anchoring a ninth-wicket 56-run with Taijul Islam (26) which pushed Bangladesh up to 471 for eight at tea.Mahmudullah, unbeaten on 75 at lunch, reached his third Test hundred 20 minutes before tea when he cut Chase to the point boundary.He was the last to fall, bowled by a full-length delivery from Warrican after being dropped by Hope at slip three balls earlier in the same over.BANGLADESH 1st innings (overnight 259 for five)Shadman Islam lbw b Bishoo 76Soumya Sarkar c Hope b Chase 19Mominul Haque c Chase b Roach 29Mohammad Mithun b Bishoo 29Shakib Al Hasan c Hope b Roach 80Mushfiqur Rahim b Lewis 14Mahmudullah b Warrican 136Liton Das b Brathwaite 54Mehidy Hasan c wkp.

So many of them could have been easily substituted for any other. I would have preferred to see actual reasoning as to why they were bad.I don’t especially love the Predators, but I don’t think it’s awful. And I agree with the above — the Devil Rays really isn’t bad at all. It’s actually kind of nice. 8 Members Less, but better. Location:Seattle http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/multimedi…/content.1.htmlHow can you put some of these teams on this list? The Wild, Coyotes, Panthers, Blue Jackets and Hurricanes all have great unis! Where is Buffalo? (Sabers, the Bills did make the list, thankfully.) One I know I am in the minority on, but still don’t believe should be on the list, the Devil Rays. Members So apparently the Islanders uniforms look like “A painted pumpkin on a pogo stick”.Um…Interesting….Anyway, there was little commentary, just snide and mostly pointless remarks from someone with no taste in sports design. If your going to criticize, then elaborate on it. He’s just proving he has no experience in this field. i don’t agree with half of these teams…more than half…14/16 of em.what’s so bad about the bills btw?Royal blue + Navy blue = crapThat among the overall design of the uniform which is tacky and unnecessary.

The Phoenix Coyotes? Honestly? Link to post 2,171 Link to post Posted November 22, 2006 That sounds like it was written by a snooty gay fashion designer who’s never watched a sporting event in his life, and I therefor take it with a grain of sand (even though I agree with most of the choices). These kind of people don’t get that some great uniforms don’t necessarily fit with what’s hip in the fashion world.Even worse. Mr. Blackwell is gay and snooty (and I’m assuming never watched a sporting event) but is merely a fashion critic. Link to post BBM Kinda going off-kilter here: not trying to polarize or politicize anything here, but in showing the CBJ’s and the Phoenix Coyotes (who, by the way, have some pretty darn fine sets, by the way), they showed a photo of Anson Carter, who I didn’t even know was still in the league. And in the very next photo, a black guy on the Coyotes. Not crying foul for showing brothas playin hockey and showing them in a “worst dressed” compilation (and whoever wrote this really needs to do some better research), I’m just saying it’s kinda cool to see the faces of these brothas. Bruh’s DO play hockey! I’m always down for diversification in an arena that’s perceived to have very little if none at all. It’s also why I like watching guys like Drew Bennet, Brian Finneran, Jeff Samardizja, Matt Jones, and Tim Dwight (if he’s still playing), because, well, let’s face it–not many white receivers in the NFL. And these is some TALENTED and VERY GOOD players (well Matt would be if he could hold on to a few more balls other than his own).Just my two cents on what popped into my head there.Okay, no back to the topic at hand: okay, the Bengals–yeah, I can go along with that. But the JAGS? What’s wrong with their look? Please–that’s one of the better ones in the NFL. What I wanna know is how he overlooked the Cardinals out west, or–even more blatantly obvious–how in the WORLD did he miss that mangled mess they’re wearing up there in Minnesota, the Vikings, that is???That’s what I wanna know… Members I believe in next year. 4 14 Share this post Location:Lebanon Ohio 1 (edited) 2,449 posts Chazberg Share this post Link to post Location:Boston, MA rtrich11 Share on other sites rtrich11 72 Tom Richards jOkeR Favourite Logos:Sabres Primary, the WEagle, Hartford Whalers Location:The East Coast…. of Wisconsin Posted November 22, 2006 A really poor effort from SI. 52 Share this post This montage is a complete mess.
