...He doesn't believe that TC designs are the way forward for trucks. "The extra gear pathways engaged over longer periods will inevitably damage fuel economy" explains Maierhofer
..."For the preload force of screw connections, the total friction coefficient plays a decisive role," Thomas Kamprath explains. "Screws lubricated with STABURAGS NBU 30 PTM have a friction coefficient of 0.09 µ 0.14, as stipulated in the standards DIN 25201 and VDI 2230. This was confirmed by comprehensive tests performed with M 16x 100 – 8.8 screws on the screw test rig. Especially for screws that have to be removed for equipment inspections it is important that they can be undone also after a longer period of operation. This is ensured by the very good resistance to water and media of STABURAGS NBU 30 PTM."
...affordable, and environmentally sustainable source of power for this community," said Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works) Jo-Ellen Darcy. "President Obama's plan to improve upon our permitting and review processes for infrastructure projects highlighted this Red Rock Hydroelectric plant. Today is a big step for this country's hydropower efforts."
Investments in modernization and new construction are an important factor for a successful energy transition ( "Energiewende'): Pumped storage power plants can store electricity from renewable energies and stabilize the power grid. The Waldeck pumped storage power plant makes a big contribution in this regard: It delivers around 10 percent of the total German pumped-storage capacity, and with its central location in Germany, is particularly suited for the storage of energy from the north and middle of the country."
