(Credit: Adam Radosavljevic from Pixabay) John Wood Group PLC announces today the sale of its industrial services business to technical services provider, Kaefer, for an initial cash consideration of circa $104 million and a further potential payment of up to circa $14m pending achievement of agreed financial goals.The divestment is another important step in Wood’s portfolio rationalisation strategy and follows the planned sale of the company’s nuclear business, which was announced in August 2019 and is expected to complete in Q1 2020. Cash proceeds from the disposals will be used to reduce debt.David Kemp, Wood’s chief financial officer said: “The sale of our industrial services business is the latest divestment aimed at maintaining our strong balance sheet and achieving our target leverage.“As our focus has moved towards building a premium, differentiated and higher-margin business, the industrial services offering is no longer core to our strategy. However, it is an excellent fit with Kaefer who see a clear opportunity to grow the business further and extend its market share across new sectors and geographies.”Wood’s industrial services business provides integrity and fabric maintenance for assets in the marine, process energy, offshore oil & gas and infrastructure sectors across the UK and Ireland.

DesignPro Advances SEENEOH Trials Through BlueGift Support

first_imgIrish company DesignPro Renewables said it has achieved new performance milestones with its hydrokinetic turbine as part of ongoing testing at the SEENEOH test site in Bordeaux, France. The turbine generates energy from flowing water and has been deployed at a dedicated test site on the River Garonne since September 2018.The design, build and initial deployment was supported through funding from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme which enabled the device to be tested for a full 12 months.In September 2019, the 25Kw unit was due to be removed and decommissioned as the H2020 support had ended, however the new funding and support through the BlueGift programme has allowed the device to stay on trial for a further 12 months.According to DesignPro, this additional testing period has enabled the company to implement upgrades and improvements to the unit, including a new Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) system developed in conjunction with Mitsubishi Electric Ireland.The system is said to have delivered significantly improved performance results just 2 weeks ago on site and marked a milestone for the team.The BlueGift support is specifically aimed at testing the longer-term performance of the device, looking at elements such as wear and tear, replacement parts and operations and maintenance requirements as well as overall survivability of the unit.Vincent Mc Cormack, innovation manager at DesignPro, said: “When you have put so much work, time and resources into developing and building a full-scale turbine it makes sense that you get as much value and learnings from it as possible. This support under BlueGift has allowed us to keep the device in for an additional 12 months at SEENEOH, granting us the opportunity to test the device more rigorously thereby getting us one step closer to having a market-ready product and instilling more confidence for investment and partners.”Vincent Laroque, president of SEENEOH, said: “We are delighted with the renewed confidence of DesignPro Renewables to extend its trials. Europe, via the INTERREG Atlantic Area programme, is offering a tool that is particularly suited to this sector by providing financial support to test sites so that they can open their doors under advantageous conditions for technology developers.”To remind, DesignPro also completed the deployment and testing of its 60kW (DPR60) turbine at Kirkwall in the Orkney Islands, Scotland in conjunction with Leask Marine.last_img read more

Greg Paulus’ unconventional road after Duke leads him to head coaching job at Niagara

first_imgGreg Paulus became a Division I head coach through an unconventional path, and not just because he played both point guard at Duke and quarterback at Syracuse.At 33, Paulus was named head coach of the Niagara Purple Eagles. There no longer is an “interim” attached to his name, and he was presented with a multi-year contract to run the school’s men’s basketball program. At the most, he’s an appealing personality who has learned from two of the best coaches in the modern game. He played for Mike Krzyzewski at Duke, appearing in 139 games and starting 100, scoring 1,193 points and compiling 468 assists. He coached for four seasons under Matta, who has sent such former assistants as Sean Miller, Archie Miller, John Groce, Jeff Boals and Alan Major on to head coaching jobs.In between, he appeared as a quarterback for Syracuse as a grad transfer, appearing in 12 games and passing for more than 2,000 yards.Paulus called it “an honor” and a privilege to be taking over the Niagara program. The Eagles have had only one winning season since Joe Mihalich left to coach Hofstra in 2013, but they made two NCAA Tournament appearances and had four 20-win seasons during his tenure, which began in 1998-99. “Since his first day on campus, Greg has exhibited a high level of professionalism and dedication to our student-athletes,” athletic director Simon Gray said in the school’s release.  “His leadership abilities have only strengthened in the past weeks and he has impressed throughout our evaluation of him as our next head coach.  I have had the privilege of talking with his extensive network and appreciate the praise for his character, work ethic, and knowledge of the game.”Greg has proven to be an effective recruiter and positive presence on campus and in the community.”COLLEGE BASKETBALL SEASON PREVIEWSporting News’ 2019-20 college basketball preseason All-AmericansPaulus became the interim coach when Patrick Beilein resigned Oct. 24 for personal reasons. It was the second time in 29 months that a staff of which Paulus was a member experienced a major offseason disruption. The previous one occurred in June 2017, when Ohio State and coach Thad Matta mutually agreed he would leave the program. That put Paulus out of a job less than a month after his wedding.He then spent a year as an assistant under interim Louisville coach David Padgett, stepping in to help the Cardinals negotiate the aftermath of Rick Pitino’s dismissal in 2017-18. He moved on to work at George Washington, but he arrived too late to help Maurice Joseph avoid dismissal in March, following a 9-24 season.And now Paulus is the guy in charge at Niagara. At the very least, he has some interesting life lessons to teach.last_img read more
