COVID-19: Weapons maker Pindad develops ventilators, protective gear

first_imgState-owned weapons manufacturer Pindad has developed several medical devices and equipment to boost the country’s capacity in the fight against coronavirus amid great demand of supplies in view of the rising number of COVID-19 cases.One of the devices is the Pindad VRM, a manual resuscitator ventilator, and Covent-20, a kind of portable ventilator specifically designed for emergency, such as when patients are being transported in ambulances.The others are disinfectant fog canons, available in three sizes and installable on vehicles to spray disinfectant up to 10 meters far, and mobile disinfection chambers. All the devices were about to be tested at the Health Facility Security Center (BPFK) before entering mass production, Pindad deputy secretary Herryawan Roosdyanto said.The prototypes were showcased to Regional Representatives Council (DPD) Speaker La Nyalla Mahmud Mattalitti and DPD member Eni Sumarni during a work visit to the company’s headquarters in Bandung, West Java, on Monday.”Pindad is currently in the process of requesting a feasibility test at the Health Facility Security Center,” Herryawan said in a statement made available to The Jakarta Post on Monday evening.The company also produced hazmat suits, safety goggles and face shields to address the lack of personal protective equipment (PPE) for medical workers handling coronavirus patients in hospitals across the country, he said. Read also: Raw materials coming from India to produce COVID-19 medicineAll of the devices and equipment were developed in accordance with World Health Organization (WHO) standards, including the disinfectant in the mobile disinfection chamber, according to Pindad.”The [disinfectant liquid] is safe, toxic free, contains no alcohol and is pH neutral, because the WHO is concerned about carcinogenic substances,” Herryawan said.In the meantime, Pindad’s disinfectant fog cannon had been installed on vehicles belonging to the Bandung Fire and Disaster Mitigation Agency to spray disinfectant on the streets in the West Java provincial capital.The lack of protective gear and supplies has taken a toll on healthcare workers around the world, including in Indonesia, where dozens of nurses and doctors working on the front lines of the coronavirus battle have reportedly been infected by the fast-spreading virus.Indonesia has been struggling to meet demand for medical equipment and protective gear for healthcare workers as the number of infections continues to surge.The Health Ministry announced 375 new coronavirus cases in the country on Tuesday, bringing the total number of infections nationwide to 7,135. The death toll has reached 616 so far, making Indonesia the country with the highest number of COVID-19 fatalities in Southeast Asia.At least 24 doctors and 16 nurses have died from the disease since Indonesia’s first two coronavirus cases were announced on March 2, according to the Indonesian Association of Doctors and the Indonesian National Nurses Association.

DFDS Awarded Brexit Contract by the UK

first_imgDanish shipping and logistics company DFDS has been awarded a contract by the UK government to provide additional ferry capacity in the North Sea.The UK Department for Transport awarded the contract to the ferry operator in order to prepare for “the possibility of severe congestion at and around UK ports from 29.3.2019, caused by increased border checks by European Union Member States”.As explained, a no-deal Brexit scenario could cause disruption at the Dover-Calais crossing to the supply of vital goods.Under the contract worth €47 million (USD 53.7 million), DFDS has agreed to provide additional capacity on Immingham – Cuxhaven, Immingham – Rotterdam, and Felixstowe – Rotterdam.The plan includes two further companies — Brittany Ferries and Seaborne Freight — and a total contract value for all three companies of GBP 103 million (USD 131.3 million).“As this is a matter for the UK Department for Transport to announce, we were unable to say anything on this before they had done so, and we also need to leave it to them to provide further details,” Henrik Tidblad, DFDS’ Commercial Fleet Director, said. Together with a team of internal and external resources he negotiated the contract.DFDS will secure the additional capacity primarily through moving around ships in its network and performing extra round trips.last_img read more

Europa O&G still looking for partner to drill Inishkea prospect after ‘major’ backs out

first_imgAn unnamed oil major has given up on farming into Europa Oil & Gas’ licenses located offshore Ireland and Europa is still looking for a partner to drill its flagship Inishkea prospect.The Inishkea prospect lies on FEL 4/19 in the Slyne basin. Source: EuropaEuropa said in late October 2019 that it had been in farm-out discussions with a number of parties in relation to its 100% owned Frontier Exploration Licences (FELs) 4/19, 1/17 and 3/13, including negotiations with the NW Europe division of a major oil company, which had been ongoing for more than twelve months.The major has now informed the company that, as part of a wider strategic review, the licenses are no longer under consideration for farm-in, Europa said in an update on Thursday.The company added that discussions with several other parties regarding the farm-out of the licenses were continuing.The company is prioritising securing a partner to drill its flagship prospect in Ireland, the Inishkea prospect which lies on FEL 4/19 in the Slyne basin.Inishkea is located close to the ~1tcf producing Corrib gas field and associated infrastructure. The company therefore regards Inishkea as lower risk “infrastructure-led” exploration and has assigned gross unrisked prospective resources of 1.5tcf and an estimated geological chance of success of one in three to the prospect.In tandem with ongoing farm-out discussions, the site survey process for a drilling location at Inishkea is being advanced. The company hopes to obtain permission for the survey to be conducted during summer 2020, which would enable drilling to occur during 2021.Simon Oddie, Interim Chief Executive Officer and Executive Chairman of Europa, said: “With gross unrisked prospective gas resources of 1.5tcf, a one in three chance of success, a location in a proven hydrocarbon region and lying close to the producing Corrib gas field, Inishkea represents a compelling drill target, one that continues to attract considerable interest from a number of potential partners. While we cannot comment on timings for the conclusion of ongoing discussions, we remain optimistic that we will secure a partner for Inishkea with whom we can drill what has the potential to be a transformational well for Europa.“In the meantime, activity continues across our asset base including working with our partners to bring the Wressle field in the UK into production later this year at an initial gross rate of 500bopd as well as technical work in Morocco focused on reprocessing and interpreting data to build a prospect inventory. I look forward to providing further updates on our progress as we look to advance our multi-stage portfolio of assets and in the process generate value for our shareholders.”Spotted a typo?

He revealed no names.However, Croatian player Borna Coric himself confirmed that he was among them.Coric said on Instagram: “Hi everyone, I wanted to inform you that I tested positive for COVID-19.“I want to make sure anyone who has been in contact with me during the last few days gets tested!”He said he was displaying no symptoms and apologised “for any harm” he may have caused. Separately, Belgrade media reported that Djokovic’s coach was also infected.Djokovic, who came under fire for organising the tournament with few health precautions and publicly partying after the Belgrade round even as the tennis world remains in lockdown, reportedly refused to be tested and returned to Belgrade to consider his steps.“Others, including Croatia’s Marin Cilic and Germany’s Alexander Zverev, showed up at the local clinic for testing,” the daily 24Sata reported online.The Serbian world number one player had also frequently been criticised over publicising his position against vaccination and his promotion of pseudo-medicine.The final of the tournament in Zadar, played a week after the inaugural leg in Belgrade, was cancelled before its scheduled conclusion on Sunday after Dimitrov announced he was infected.
