I was lucky to be able to visit the Istanbul Airport (ICAO code is LTFM, IATA code is ISL) prior to its official opening on 29.10.2018. My tour of the new airport included all details such as the taxiways, treshold of runway 35L, the tower, airport datacenter, terminals, luggage loading areas. We all hope the best for this airport, which will the world's biggest airport when in full operation within couple of years.
Some of my photos can be seen through this link.
This video was taken during the testing and commisioning of a DRUPS (Dynamic Rotary UPS) installed in one of our data center projects in Turkey. When the utility input gear Q1 is opened the full datacenter IT load is fed by the rotary energy storage unit. At the same time of power outage the diesel unit starts up and takes the full load within seconds. With the diesel engine on, the IT load is fed and the kinetic energy storage is charged back up %100.
I went to Nigeria in February 2018 to finish up our Fire fighting project for Hayat Group in Nigeria Agbara Plant. It was a very successful project involving water based sprinkler systems, CO2 and FM-200 based extinguishing systems. I gave on site training to Hayat Nigerian H&S Staff and Fire staff on various components of the system such as Fire Pumps (according to NFPA20), detection and extinguishing activation panels, wet alarm valve station groups etc. Below is a shot of the lovely Nigerian brothers and sisters during the traning.
Looking through the sight glass towards the furnace (grate) of an incinerator. Municipal Solid Waste is burning directly on the grate. This video is from the AEB Amsterdam Incineration plant with the a total electrical power output capacity of 1250 MWe/hour , by incinerating approximately 4400 tons of MSW per day. This will be the future of Municipal Solid Waste for a sustainable environment.
