Ecosse IP (EIP) has recently completed pre-trial tests of its newest product, the Ambient Lifter (AL10T), in Buckie Harbour, UK. These tests form part of the development of EIP’s new range of subsea lifting products, the company said.The recent tests follow on from trials completed in September 2018 in which the Ambient Lifter successfully lifted 5Te from the seabed. Building on the results of last year’s harbour trials, the engineering team at EIP has scaled up the Ambient Lifter, increasing the lifting capacity from 5Te to 10Te and adding an ROV garage and docking interface to form an integral element of the subsea solution provided by EIP’s Ambient Lifter product range.The tests are a pre-cursor to full harbour trials scheduled for March 2019, which are being supported by the Oil & Gas Technology Centre (OGTC).Dorothy Burke, EIP managing director, said: “We are delighted with the way in which the Ambient Lifter performed during these tests: the scaled-up model AL10T performed well, successfully demonstrating it can be manoeuvred with the integrated ROV and can lift a 10Te weight. A full harbour trial is scheduled for March with clients and trade organisations planned to attend. We are delighted the Oil & Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) is supporting our next trials and also look forward to working with Oceaneering and Aleron on the next phases through to commercialization.”

Kick ’em Jenny In its final advisory on the activity at the volcano which began erupting last weekend, Grenada’s National Disaster Management Agency (NaDMA) said there had been no more earthquakes since just after midnight on Tuesday, and “this episode appears to be over”.“However, as noted in previous updates, the pattern of behaviour at the…volcano has been changing and another episode of activity in the short-term should not be ruled out,” the agency added, noting that it continues to collaborate with the Seismic Research Centre (SRC) at the University of the West Indies’ St. Augustine Campus to monitor activities.As a precautionary measure NaDMA has maintained the alert level at yellow, which means that vessels should observe a 1.5 km/0.93 mile exclusion zone.“The marine community is advised to continue observing the secondary exclusion zone of 5 km/3.1 miles. The SRC has advised that heightened alert is necessary for the exclusion zone,” NaDMA stated.The first eruption at the region’s only submarine volcano – which is located about five miles north of Grenada – occurred last Saturday evening, with reports of it being felt in St Patrick’s, Grenada.Scores of mostly low-magnitude quakes were subsequently recorded.
In March, Jang reportedly said in Japan that there was no reason for the North to stay away from the Olympics, but that the games would be hosted by South Korea.In Seoul on Friday he said he would discuss the idea of co-hosting the Winter Games with Olympic chief Thomas Bach when he meets him in South Korea next week.He was speaking after South Korea’s sports minister Do Jong-Hwan was quoted as saying some skiing events for the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics could be held in North Korea, although officials insist he was misunderstood.However, Do does plan to raise the idea of inviting North Korean players to join South Korea’s women’s ice hockey team for the Pyeongchang Olympics, a spokesman of the ministry said.South Korea considered sharing some events at the Seoul 1988 Olympics with the North, but talks broke down and the North boycotted the Games.Moon suggested earlier this month that the two Koreas should apply to co-host the 2030 World Cup.Share on: WhatsApp Moon Jae-inSeoul, South Korea | AFP | South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Saturday invited North Korea to the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, saying sports could serve as a peace maker.The South and nuclear-armed North Korea are separated by one of the world’s most heavily armed borders and remain technically at war after the 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice rather than a peace treaty.But the centre-left Moon is known to favour engagement with the North to bring it to the negotiating table in a break from his conservative predecessors who took a hardline stance.“I believe in the strength of sports that has been brokering peace,” Moon said.“If a North Korean delegation takes part in the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, I believe it will greatly contribute to realizing the Olympic values of friendship and peace,” he said, according to a script of his remarks released by the presidential Blue House.Moon also suggested the two countries pool their athletes to form joint teams for the games to achieve better performances.The president was speaking at the opening of the World Taekwondo Championships in the southern county of Muju.Also on hand was North Korea’s top sports official Jang Woong, the country’s sole IOC member, together with a North Korean delegation of athletes.
