Pool&SpaTech Asia will take the stage once again from 19-21 September 2012 at Hall 5, IMPACT Exhibition & Convention Center in Bangkok, Thailand. The trade event has recently been rebranded to Pool&SpaTech Asia to further redefine and expand its event profile. Held in conjunction with Landscape Asia and World Spa & Well-being Convention 2012, Pool&SpaTech Asia will focus on technology and solutions for the Pool & Spa market whilst World Spa & Well-being Convention sets the stage on spa related accessories and services for the spa and well-being industry. Landscape Asia will focus its spotlight for business professionals to network and tap into the region’s growing landscaping technology and services industry.
The combined three-in-one event platform is set to unlock a plethora of opportunities for exhibitors with the aim to showcase their products, network and build relationships with decision makers, distributors and buyers in Asia. The event is also set to attract a wider pool of ready buyers from the Pool, Spa and Landscaping industry through a series of dedicated multi-track conferences, exhibitor showcases and activities.

Many leading international companies like Classic Pools Pty Ltd, Hentech Technology, Pool&Spa (Products) Co., Ltd, Pentair, Water Works Warehouse Co., Ltd. and Water Doctor Co., Ltd., have confirmed their participation at Pool&SpaTech Asia 2012. To complement the spa profile at the event, a wide range of exhibitors such as AKA Holistic Wellness, BEAUTYdepartmentstore.com, Dasy Design, Nail Techniques International Co., Ltd, Spanovator and Seth Intertrade Co., Ltd. will be present at the World Spa & Well-being Convention 2012.

“As the demand for eco-friendly and sustainable products are growing in all Asian markets, we believe that Pentair is able to bring the required innovation, technology and knowledge to Asia, especially to Thailand since we have our South East Asia offices based in Bangkok”, states Mr. Hugh Smith of Pentair Water Pool & Spa.

Pioneers in the field of landscaping industry will be able to experience a myriad of networking opportunities at the trade event in the areas of urban design, landscape machinery and equipment, communal recreational areas, construction and maintenance as well as green spaces and eco-friendly solutions. Mr David Goh, Business Development Manager of Garden & Landscape Centre, Singapore commented, “We are happy to exhibit at the upcoming Landscape Asia 2012 and look forward to fostering positive networking synergies at the trade event. As pioneers in the field of landscape architecture and green solutions, we are confident that Garden and Landscape Centre Pte Ltd (Singapore) and In & Out Landscape (Thailand) will be able to contribute our innovative and environmental-friendly technology and knowledge sharing capabilities to visitors in Asia.”

Businesses that are keen to explore opportunities in Asia, in particular Thailand, stand to reap the benefits arising from a robust tourism plan which had been developed for the Kingdom of Thailand. Aimed at increasing tourism income by at least 5% during the 5-year plan, this plan covers 385 tourism development projects in eight tourism clusters for upgrading of basic infrastructure, landscaping and convenience at tourist sites nationwide. The beach resorts will receive the biggest slice of the budget with 3.98 billion baht to fund 141 projects nationwide. In addition, a National Tourism Development Plan with a budget of 6.65 million baht (US$218 million) budget has been approved by Thailand’s Cabinet and will take force from 2012 to 2016.

A series of industry seminars will be held simultaneously with the trade exhibition. Seminar topics range from eco-friendly construction, planning, engineering, managing, innovating and management of swimming pool & spa hardware. Each seminar track is designed to provide the latest updates in technologies and product development in the industry.  A specialised seminar track on green landscaping and eco-friendly solutions for green spaces will be organised for business professionals in the landscape industry.  Delegates with a specialised interest in the spa and well-being industry will also have the opportunity to leverage on a knowledge-exchange platform at the World Spa & Well-being Congress.

In addition, the much anticipated pool/spa operator certification program will take place alongside the trade event for its second year. This two-day training program is certified by the National Swimming Pool Foundation and will provide training for efficient, effective, economical and safe use of swimming pools and spas. This program has delivered more trainings than any other program in the pool and spa industry worldwide since 1972, resulting in more than 200,000 successful CPO certifications in 44 countries.

Mr. John Hassett, Chief Operating Officer for Informa Exhibitions Asia commented, “As organisers, we are certain of the great potential in Asia, especially Thailand, with its growing tourism and private property industries. Together, Pool&SpaTech Asia and World Spa & Well-being Convention will provide access to suppliers and trade professionals with a direct and targeted way to do business and meet their targeted buyers on one platform at the same time. The trade exhibitions and dedicated conferences and seminars also serve as an annual gathering place for industry experts and trade professionals to network, exchange views and update themselves on the latest industry trends and technologies.”

“Pool&SpaTech Asia is being seen as the gateway to South East Asia’s highly lucrative pool and spa market given the current focus on the approaching ASEAN Thailand Community 2015 (AEC 2015). The event takes a multi-faceted approach for exhibitors to expand their businesses through existing marketing channels whilst creating new business connections.” added Mr. Loy Joon How, General Manager of IMPACT Exhibition Management Co., Ltd.

Pool&SpaTech Asia is co-organised by IIR Exhibitions Pte Ltd and IMPACT Exhibition Management Co., Ltd. whilst World Spa & Well-being Convention is organised by Thai Spa Association. Together, the combined trade events will pave the way to South East Asia’s highly lucrative pool and spa industry, providing swimming pool deck and equipment manufacturers, spa equipment manufacturers, landscaping suppliers, architects and interior designers as well as products and services from the spa and wellness industry with the opportunity to make first contact with potential buyers and tap on the flourishing pool and spa business in Thailand.

Sensus Provides AMI Communications Infrastructure for Grand Cayman Utility FlexNet wireless communications system offers higher protection against tropical storms and seamless interoperability with pre-pay billing application for a Caribbean utility

RALEIGH, N.C. (February 21, 2012) – Caribbean Utilities Company, Ltd. (CUC), the public electric utility which serves Grand Cayman, is building a new utility network infrastructure using the Sensus FlexNetTM advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) system for residential and commercial electricity customers.

CUC is implementing the wireless licensed spectrum FlexNet AMI system with only two tower base stations to cover all of Grand Cayman, an area of about 76 square miles. CUC is installing Sensus iCon® A electric meters for residential applications and iCon® APX electric meters for commercial customers with roughly 28,000 endpoints by the project’s completion. In conjunction with the FlexNet AMI installation, CUC has chosen to deploy a pre-pay billing application. Third party vendor Exceleron will partner with Sensus to provide its industry leading Prepaid Account Management System (PAMS), a hosted service sharing a common MultiSpeak interface.

PAMS will exchange data seamlessly with the FlexNet system and CUC’s customer information system (CIS). A phased deployment has begun and the project is expected to be completed by the end of 2013.

“The Sensus FlexNet system offered the right features and capabilities to meet the requirements of our AMI business case,” said Manager Engineering Services at CUC, Sacha Tibbetts. “We were further encouraged by the speed and available bandwidth of the FlexNet network which allows for the layering of future smart grid functionality.”

Mr. Tibbetts explained that CUC made its selection based on two main factors. The minimal infrastructure required by a point-to-multipoint wireless network was essential as it reduces storm damage risks and has a lower overall cost to install and maintain. The second major consideration was the need for a pre-paid billing option that could provide flexibility for part-time residents and visitors to the island as well as full time residents who want greater control over the amount of money they spend on electricity. Exceleron’s PAMS software has been successfully integrated with FlexNet and was made part of the proposal to CUC.

Under a pre-paid plan, customers can buy electricity in any quantity without the need to have a security deposit on account. CUC’s pre-paid customers will receive notification of a low balance (in dollars) through email, text or automated voice messages as reminder for them to top up their balance. They will have the opportunity to track usage and make payments through a dedicated web portal as well as pay by phone, CUC kiosk or office. Based on consumer feedback, and experience in other Caribbean jurisdictions, CUC believes that the pre-paid form of electricity purchase will be very popular and they plan on making it available to as many customers as possible.

Installation of the full AMI system in the Caribbean island territory is expected to be straight forward. As FCC licensed spectrum does not apply in the region, Sensus helped CUC secure and integrate licensed 900 MHz frequencies from the Information Communication Technology Authority (ICTA) which governs spectrum for the Cayman Islands. The FlexNet system will be able to accommodate future applications for distribution automation and demand response.

“CUC is making the leap to smart grid in a very responsible, coordinated manner that will certainly improve service reliability and efficiency across the island,” said Randolph Wheatley, vice president of corporate marketing and communications at Sensus. I think the adaptability of our technology to meet specific needs in that part of the world certainly stood out and made the selection process much easier.”

I love them. I have my daughter, Son and Husband on them too. Order cialis canada! We are aimed at supplying customers all over the world with medications of high quality at lowest prices thus helping to save their money and time.

The African energy sector is open for business. In actual fact there has been no better time than now to conduct business on the continent. The number of projects has quadrupled from that of 10 years ago and many of the continent’s governments are now democratic, paving the way for economic growth.

In support of the opportunities within the energy sector, the annual Africa Energy Indaba which will be held on 21-23 February, has developed a unique roundtable which will focus and unlock the potential of this vital industry sector for companies wanting to tap into this market.

Paul Runge – Managing Director of specialised consulting firm Africa Project Access will be heading an energy roundtable discussion at the upcoming Africa Energy Indaba on February 23 February– opening up the floor for discussion on major energy greenfields and brownfields projects on the continent. According to Runge “the discussion will have a business focus and will also be very practical. We will look at projects from the ground up and talk about where things are headed. We will talk about export credit insurance, state organs that are able to help South African & African companies and projects throughout the Sub-Sahara region and regional interconnectors,” says Runge.

Joining Runge in the roundtable discussion will be role players in some of these projects such as Ethiopia’s hydro-power programme – currently the biggest hydro-power project in Africa. The roundtable discussion will bring together Africa’s energy operators, financers and other important role-players. “It will be a great opportunity to learn of new and exciting projects and opportunities as well as network”, says Runge. Templates of specific projects will also be made available to those attending.

The Africa Energy Indaba will take place at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg.  This leading business forum brings together more than 300 senior level energy sector experts and decision–makers. Over 100 leading energy suppliers will also be present at the annual exhibition showcasing their latest technologies, equipment and services.

Paul Runge has 30 years’ experience assisting companies to access business and projects in Africa. He has developed a practical rationale and methodology that will be of value to companies and organisations wishing to diversify their portfolio into Africa. His company Africa Project Access supplies approximately 80 companies and organisations with early alerts on projects across a broad range of sectors on the continent. As a former diplomat, Runge has useful background knowledge on the political and business landscape of the countries he conducts business in – a value add for the clients who seek his services.

Runge has lived in Gabon and supervised projects in the Cape Verde Islands, has spent six years with the South African Foreign Trade Organisation and has led many of the first South African business delegations into other African countries following the end of international sanctions against South Africa.  He has furthermore, published a book, Potholes & Profits: Business (& other) Conversations and Experiences from Africa which is an anecdotal account of his experiences in a number of African markets.

Turning Waste into Energy: the Win-Win-Win solution

Biogas is probably the best kept secret in the renewable energy industry.

I have been using this product for years. I have tried others but have not found anything that works better for me. Order levitra canada? Each of these medications are Indian FDA approved and are internationally certified, so you know our products are safe.

Organic waste is one of the untapped sources of natural energy available today. “It’s a simple solution that can be deployed in as quickly as three days but people don’t know too much about it”, says Jonathan de Magalhães, Managing Director of Ubuntu Energy Solutions. While biogas is used all over the world –India for example has more than 4.5 million digesters–harnessing biogas energy in South Africa is practically unknown. Only a small number of digesters have been built successfully and commissioned to date – a loss to the renewable industry sector in the country since biogas fulfils all of the criteria relating to environmental sustainability, requires a relatively low technological input and is cost effective to implement.

Biogas typically refers to the gas which is produced by the biological breakdown of organic matter. Organic waste, such as dead plant matter, animal manure and kitchen waste, can easily be converted into biogas in a simple biogas digester. Biogas consists mainly of methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2). Biogas can be used as fuel for cooking, lighting, water heating as well as being able to run biogas generators to produce electricity.

Biogas provides a clean, easily controlled source of renewable energy from available organic waste for a small labour input, replacing firewood or fossil fuels, which are becoming more expensive as demand outweighs the supply.

Additionally, a biogas digester treats the organic waste and prevents it from taking up precious space in our landfills or over-burdened sewerage plants. In South Africa the waste disposed of in landfills produces unwanted landfill gas (Methane CH4) and leachate emissions. Furthermore, there is pressure on the country’s aging sewerage system. According to de Magalhães, generating biogas presents a Win-Win -Win solution because it offers:

Easy disposal and treatment of Organic Waste

-      Black Water Treatment: By feeding the black water (sewerage) into the biogas digester, additional organic waste as well as much needed water, will increase the yield of biogas from the digester daily. Additionally, in environments that would normally require a septic tank system, the cost saving of not needing the septic tank can be used to offset the costs of the biogas system.

-      Organic waste, such as grass cuttings, animal manure, kitchen waste and almost any other type of similar waste, can be used to generate a usable form of energy.

-      As the biogas digester is a closed system, there is no leakage of the organic waste into the surrounding environment. This can significantly reduce, or even eliminate, the need for an Environmental Impact Study.

Reduction of associated Energy Costs

-      The biogas generated by the digester system can be used for water heating, space heating, cooking, lighting or running a biogas generator for electricity generation. Or any combination of these.

-      By using biogas instead of traditional resources, such as electricity or gas, to provide this functionality, energy costs can be significantly reduced, providing a quick Return on Investment (ROI) for biogas solutions.

Provides further Cost Savings or a Passive Income

-      As the process of biogas generation uses the bacteria in the organic waste, the organic slurry found at the end of the process can be easily managed, and all organic smells are contained within the closed digester system. This organic slurry can be used as a natural fertiliser for nearly all agricultural applications, reducing any costs associated with purchasing traditional fertilisers.

-      This 100% natural organic fertiliser can also be sold to agricultural farms and nurseries, either in its liquid form or pre-dried and pelletized, providing an additional form of income from the biogas digester.

Biogas digesters are used all over the world, and the technologies have made leaps and strides, especially over the past three years. The first biogas system was installed in India in 1859. South and south-west Brazil are characterised by intensive livestock farming. Rio Grande do Sul, the southernmost Federal state in Brazil, has an abundance of pig farms. The manure produced in large quantities by pig farming is used for biogas production.

According to de Magalhães, generating biogas offers a better Return on Investment (ROI) than solar or wind systems. “It’s easy to install and deploy, and is very low in maintenance, probably only requiring some attention once every 5 to 7 years. For these reasons, biogas digesters would work well in rural villages, farming communities and game lodges,” says de Magalhães.

But even the average family in Johannesburg could use their organic household waste in a biogas system. “As long as you have enough feedstock to put into the biogas system, such as blackwater, grass cuttings, and a reasonable amount of kitchen waste, then you can generate your own biogas. Even with a small system with enough organic feedstock, combine this with some solar panels and an intelligent inverter system, and you could get about 80% off the grid, all things considered.” says deMagalhães.“There is no smell because it is a closed system, and the payback period could easily be under 10 years, which is much shorter than a solar-powered system.”

However, amidst all these advantages, there have been no government initiatives in South Africa to assist those wishing to deploy biogas systems.

To learn more about biogas technology, be sure to attend the annual Africa Energy Indaba being held from February 21 to 23, 2012 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg.
