Price tag for Muskrat Falls hydro megaproject rises by another billion CEO

first_imgAPTN National NewsCosts for the Muskrat Falls hydro project in Labrador are up another $1 billion, a “boondoggle” the man in charge says is worse than the lopsided Upper Churchill debacle.Nalcor Energy CEO Stan Marshall said Friday the new price tag is $12.7 billion with financing. That’s up from an estimate last year of $11.7 billion and is about $5 billion higher than when the former Progressive Conservative government approved Muskrat Falls five years ago.Marshall took over as head of the Crown corporation last year after the governing Liberals criticized oversight. He said at the time the megaproject was a colossal mistake that he’d try to fix.“I knew this was a boondoggle,” that should never have gone ahead, Marshall reiterated Friday.“As long as I’m here I’ll do my best,” he added, vowing it can still “finish strong.”“The only way to have solved this was not to have built it in the first place … It was too late to stop. We couldn’t get a refund.”Initial cost projections were drastically low-balled, he said: Either intentionally or unintentionally, “the costs were significantly underestimated.”Marshall blamed the latest budget bloat on contractor disputes, higher operating costs, a leaky cofferdam and delays, including a worksite occupation last fall by demonstrators concerned about methylmercury.Muskrat Falls has had its surprises. I’m not going to say that there won’t be anymore – Stan MarshallMarshall said 75 per cent of construction is now done, up from 48 per cent last May.First power is expected in 2019 at an estimated cost of 23.3 cents per kilowatt hour before tax.That’s up 8.2 cents from when Muskrat Falls was approved and would double recent rates paid by consumers.Marshall and Premier Dwight Ball have said they’ll look at ways to reduce that hit and cut average monthly bills that could otherwise go up more than $150 per month.The previous Tory government sanctioned Muskrat Falls in 2012, a joint venture with Nova Scotia utility Emera championed by former premier Danny Williams. It will bring power from Labrador to the island of Newfoundland then on to Nova Scotia using subsea cables and a vast overland transmission network.Williams hailed Muskrat Falls as the answer to his province’s long-running feud with Hydro-Quebec over transmission access and the Upper Churchill deal. Terms of the 65-year contract did not reflect rising energy rates.As a result, the Upper Churchill dam and powerhouse in Labrador have so far delivered about $27.5 billion for Hydro-Quebec versus $2 billion for Newfoundland and Labrador. The dispute is once again before the Supreme Court of Canada for a hearing on whether the contract should be reopened.Marshall said Friday that Muskrat Falls is especially painful because it made the opposite gaffe as supporters gambled that energy values would stay high. They lost, and this time ratepayers on the hook, he said.Costs could rise again, Marshall added.“Muskrat Falls has had its surprises. I’m not going to say that there won’t be anymore.”The province is already facing protests from Innu and Inuit leaders over the release of water from the dam and concerns around methylmercury poisoning. Methylmercury is a naturally occurring toxin contained in vegetation that sits in place until disturbed. It can be released when mixed with water.(Land protectors occupy the offices at Muskrat Falls in the fall of 2016.)In the fall, several protests, an occupation of the Muskrat Falls construction site and a hunger strike forced the province into a deal to study the effects of the poisoning – and to release water from the dam in the spring – when it is believed the toxin will have less an impact. But Nalcor announced that water would be released in July, not the spring.Marshall said Nalcor is working with Labrador Inuit leaders on methylmercury concerns downstream as land is flooded.“I’m not looking to do anything that will endanger people.”But Innu and Inuit leaders already said that the province reneged on a promise to lower water levels in the dam reservoir in the spring to negate possibly methylmercury concerns. NaBall said Friday that Muskrat Falls was “ill-conceived and reckless,” but stopped short of calling for a forensic audit.Such a review now would eat up more cash and could add to delays, he said. Ball said he’s committed to a more in-depth look later on.He blamed the staggering increases on “neglect” and questioned why Nalcor and the previous Tory government did not act years ago to rein in costs.On Friday, Ball released a 2013 risk management report by SNC-Lavalin that warned of the fiscal fallout.Stamped “confidential” and “for internal use only,” it forecast cost overruns of 39 per cent with a potential extra price tag of $2.4 billion when Muskrat Falls was just 20 per cent complete.Ball said he only received the report Thursday from Nalcor.Still, Ball continued this week to talk up future Labrador hydro projects. But he stressed that consultation with Innu and Inuit leaders would have to improve and any new developments can’t be “on the backs of ratepayers.”Former premier Paul Davis, who became official Opposition leader when the Liberals won in 2015, said Friday the Tory government pushed for Muskrat Falls based on information it had at the time. He said he wasn’t aware of the risk management report while in power.He also challenged Ball to order a forensic audit now if the premier questions those initial estimates.“We have nothing to hide from the decisions that we made.”-with files from the Canadian Pressnews@aptn.calast_img read more

34th Marathon des Sables Recap Stage Two is Defined by Desert

Rabat – The dunes of Erg Chebbi defined the second stage of the Marathon des Sables (MDS) as runners spent nearly a third of the stage’s 32.5 kilometers racing through Morocco’s largest dune field.Competitors left the starting line at 8:30 a.m. and by noon temperatures had reached 29.5 degrees celsius—3 degrees hotter than the first stage.The dunes and heat caused half a dozen competitors to drop out of the MDS by 2 p.m. Only two competitors dropped following the mixed terrain of the first stage, bringing the total number of runners from 781. In general, 11 hours is the maximum time expected to complete the stage. The race’s top finishers for both the men’s and the women’s race made it it in less than five hours.View Also: Marathon des Sables’ Course Through Morocco’s DesertThe men’s raceThe El Morabity brothers firmly held on to first and second place, with Mohamed El Morabity finishing just six seconds ahead of his brother, Rachid, who won the first stage of the marathon on Sunday, April 7.Abdelkader El Mouaziz remained in the top five by coming in less than four minutes after the El Morabity brothers. The three runners, all members of the Maroc TGCC Team, worked together to stay orientated in the dunes.“I did a great job for our team,” Mouaziz said. “I was in charge of the compass in the dunes.”The end of the second stage also brought the MDS’ first international top five men’s finishers. Fourth and fifth place were taken by Antonio Alongi, from Italy and Merile Robert from France—a stark contrast from the Moroccan dominated stage one.Stage Two: Men’s Top FiveRankNameCountryTime1Rachid El MorabityMorocco2:52:302Mohamed El MorabityMorocco2:52:363Abdelkader El MouazizMorocco2:56:144Antonio AlongiItaly3:01:145Merile RobertFrance3:04:02The women’s raceDutch runner Ragna Debats continued to dominate the women’s race, finishing the second stage nearly 45 minutes ahead of the next runner.“Thirteen kilometers of dunes, that was a first for me.

Hicks climbed to second place after finishing fifth in the first stage—overtaking Moroccan runner Aziz Raji and finishing more than six minutes ahead of her.“I didn’t have the opportunity to train on this type of terrain,” Raji said. “Still, I was able to make it to the Top 3.

British skier watches in horror as brother and close friend die in

first_imgRajen Mahendra, 26, from CambridgeCredit:LinkedIn His friends have described him as a “fun-loving, adventurous, kind hearted and caring person”Credit:Family handout Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. All three men were skiing the 45-degree couloir when Mr Cassagneau-Francis and Mr Mahendra lost control and plunged several hundred metres down the icy, rocky terrain, with hard, compacted snow.  Friends of Dr Cassagneau-Francis have paid tribute to him. Rajen Mahendra, 26, from Cambridge Mr Cassagneau-Francis and his friend Mr Mahendra, who were both born and brought up in Cambridge, were skiing in an area popular with off-piste skiers.But conditions are particularly unfavourable at the moment and mountain experts have warned skiers to exercise the utmost caution if considering venturing off-piste. A spokesman for the PGHM, the high mountain police in Chamonix, said: “Three British men were skiing Le Couloir Du Chapeau. It is a steep off-piste area. The snow at the moment is very hard, it is not powder skiing. The two men fell several hundred metres, within a couple of minutes of each other.“For sure these men were good skiers but the conditions are not good. An investigation has been opened into the accident.”Police refused to say whether the skiers were wearing helmets.As a teenager Mr Mahendra attended the fee paying Perse School in Cambridge, while Mr Cassagneau-Francis went to Netherhall School and then Hills Road Sixth Form College and the pair  frequently socialised together.Mr Cassagneau-Francis went on to train as a junior doctor at Newcastle University and at Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust, in south east London, while Mr Mahendra joined the international advertising and PR group Reprise Media.Both Mr Mahendra and Mr Cassagneau-Francis were keen sportsman and the pair had skied together with their families during the past decade.A grinning selfie of Mr Mahendra and his friends was posted on Twitter by an old schoolmate, with the caption: “Perse 2010. Older, not wiser”. Another shows him making a speech to the table of young men, dressed in a novelty Christmas jumper. They said: “Oscar was a fun-loving, adventurous, kind hearted and caring person who touched the hearts of everyone he knew. He will be sorely missed but greatly remembered by all those that know and love him. The world is a darker place without his cheeky smile & zest for life.”A spokeswoman for the men’s tour operator Inghams said: “We are working closely with local authorities in Chamonix, France, and the British Consulate, following the fatal accident involving two skiers. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of our guests at this difficult time.”According to police, there was evidence that other skiers had skied the slope in previous days.The bodies of the two men were retrieved from the mountain by helicopter and police have opened an investigation into the tragedy. Officers are due to interview Oliver Cassagneau-Francis, who was not injured, but was yesterday described as being in shock. His friends have described him as a "fun-loving, adventurous, kind hearted and caring person" Mr Cassagneau-Francis’s brother Oliver Phillipe recently finished studying for a postgraduate degree in Economics at French university Sciences Po.Before this, he studied for a BSc in the subject in his hometown, at the University of Cambridge.Like his brother he is understood to have been a keen skier, often posting photographs of himself on the slopes.On one photograph of his brother Oliver Phillipe trekking up a mountain, apparently preparing to ski off-piste, Mr Cassagneau-Francis wrote: “New skis? And when can i come see you?!?! Skype me sometime”.Stuart Macdonald, a British IFMGA mountain guide based in Chamonix, said: “This is an extremely serious couloir to ski at any time because there is a cliff at the bottom that you need to exit beforehand and it is a 45-degree slope. This is extreme skiing in any conditions, let alone Sunday’s.”It is west-facing and relatively low in altitude and the past week we have had plenty of sun and no fresh snow. All these factors mean I would not have skied that couloir on Sunday.”They may have seen tracks in the snow that they then followed, but in Chamonix, in particular, you could well be following a world-class skier.” A British skier witnessed a tragic accident in which his younger brother and a close childhood friend fell to their death in the French Alps.Experienced skier Oscar Cassagneau-Francis and his friend Rajen Mahendra, both 26, plunged several hundred metres to their deaths in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc while skiing off-piste.Mr Cassagneau-Francis’ older brother Oliver Phillipe, 28, also a keen skier, saw one of the men fall at around 11.40am on Sunday.He managed to raise the alarm with the piste patrollers who then radioed the mountain police in a desperate bid to find the pair alive.It is not known if the second skier fell while Oliver Phillipe was calling for help but he told rescuers he did not see the second fatal fall.Mr Cassagneau-Francis had been on several skiing trips, but the weather conditions on the 1700 metre high Le Couloir Du Chapeau, a steep section of the famous Grands Montets ski area, were said to be perilous, despite the glorious sunshine.last_img read more

BMW forced to respond to BBC report showing its cars at easy

first_img(Phys.org)—In response to a BBC report that proved that BMW cars built between 2006 and 2011 can be easily stolen by thieves using a device that takes advantage of the cars’ computer system, BMW has announced that all owners of such vehicles can bring them in for a free fix. At issue is the process BMW put in place for its cars during the period in question. Owners who lost their keys could bring the car into a dealer who would then connect a computer to the car’s computer, along with a new blank key, and a new electronic key would be produced. Because of the simplicity of the procedure and the high value of BMW cars, clever engineers began creating the same type of computer the dealer’s used and selling them on the Internet. That allowed thieves to purchase them which made stealing a BMW as easy as breaking a window to gain entry, attaching the computer to the port inside the vehicle, along with a blank, and creating a new key that when inserted into the dash port, allowed the car to be started and driven away. While certainly very high tech, the result is a vehicle being stolen just as easily as cars made back before all the fancy electronics were introduced.Putting computers in cars started with the engines, taking out carburetors and putting in small computers that more efficiently meted air and gas. After that came computers that controlled the door locks allowing people to use small handheld devices with buttons to lock and unlock their cars from a distance, making such mundane tasks a little easier and less messy in bad weather. This was followed by adding computers that allowed for automatically starting the engine of the car, allowing owners to warm things up before getting in, and eventually, for some brands, the disappearance of a metal key altogether. In such cars, programmed plastic keys are inserted into the dash, and the computer takes care of getting the car started, presumably saving wear and tear on the starter mechanism under the hood. That’s what BMW did and that’s where it ran into trouble. By including code in the cars computer to not only start the engine when a proper key was identified, but to zap a blank key to create a new one upon command by a special computer, the car company opened the door to thieves. And that, British police say has led to a rash of car thefts in that country.BMW owners who purchased cars during the period noted can call their local dealer to have the problem fixed with their vehicle, or as some have noted, can simply move the computer port inside their car to a new location using a simple screw driver so that thieves can’t find it. © 2012 Phys.org BMW shows hands-free driving on Autobahn (w/ video) Citation: BMW forced to respond to BBC report showing its cars at easy risk of being stolen (2012, September 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-09-bmw-bbc-cars-easy-stolen.html Explore further This document is subject to copyright.

Are Thriving Housing Markets Moving East

first_img August 1, 2016 594 Views Share Are Thriving Housing Markets Moving East? Housing Markets Pro Teck Home Value Forecast 2016-08-01 Seth Welborncenter_img Most housing reports find that the markets with the most activity are located in the West. While Pro Teck Valuation Services’ latest Home Value Forecast did find that nine of the top 10 markets were located either on the West Coast or in Western States, there was one surprise from the East on the list—Durham-Chapel Hill, North Carolina.According to Pro Teck, the “Research Triangle” area of North Carolina boasts several attributes that create a thriving housing market, such as a nearby university (University of North Carolina), and many high tech, medical, and banking industry companies who have moved into the area and employ UNC grads.“There’s a reason why the Research Triangle is known as the land of tees, trees and PhDs,” said Tom O’Grady, CEO of Pro Teck Valuation Services. “In years past, one would have to move to the Northeast to find high tech careers. Today, companies have moved to where employees can enjoy all that comes with living in the North Carolina countryside.”Fundamendals have drivin the housing market in Durham-Chapel Hill, which has not experienced the same extreme price swings as other markets. Home price versus employment for Durham-Chapel Hill generally correlate with each other, as do household income and home price per square foot, according to Pro Teck.“Looking at the data, one can see the Durham-Chapel Hill CBSA (core-based statistical area) is a healthy market driven by classic supply and demand fundamentals,” said O’Grady. “In contrast, one can look at the ‘bubble’ in home prices in Miami from 2003-2007 that didn’t have a corresponding increase in employment—that’s when the trouble starts.”Two of the top 10 housing markets are located in Washington (Mount Vernon-Anacortes and Olympia-Tumwater), one is in Colorado (Colorado Springs), one is in Oregon (Eugene) and five are in California (Yuba City, Vallejo-Fairfield, Modesto, Stockton-Lodi, and Fresno). Yuba City, which is located 40 miles north of Sacramento, has seen its percentage of REO sales drop from over 60 percent at its peak in 2008 when the crisis hit down to near-historic norms of 4.43 percent.
