Enel and Eni jointly develop hydrogen projects

first_img Enel and Eni to develop hydrogen projects. (Credit: Wikipedia.org/Rocielma.) Global energy sector leaders Enel and Eni are working together to develop green hydrogen projects. The two partners are planning to produce green hydrogen through electrolyzers powered by renewable energy. The electrolyzers will be located near two of the Eni refineries where green hydrogen appears to be the best decarbonization option. Each of the two pilot projects will feature an electrolyzer of around 10 MW and are expected to start generating green hydrogen by 2022-2023.Francesco Starace, Enel Group CEO and General Manager, said: “We are interested in exploring with Eni the promising green hydrogen sector. Together, we identified a couple of sites where we can start with the first projects. The overall system we have in mind will be working as a closed loop whereby the electrolyzer fed by renewable energy and the refinery will be at the same location, therefore avoiding the construction of complex transport infrastructure to move hydrogen around. We are looking forward to seeing green hydrogen supplying Eni’s refinery and biorefinery processes, and are working to have the first operating system in place before the end of our current three-year plan.”Claudio Descalzi, Eni CEO said: “This partnership in green hydrogen is part of Eni’s broader energy transition strategy. Our goal is to accelerate the reduction of our carbon footprint by implementing the best applicable low carbon solution, either green or blue, to reduce our direct emissions as well as switching to bio products to supply our clients.”In the green hydrogen segment, the Enel Group is also developing projects in Spain, Chile and the United States. Should the expected economic improvements of the green hydrogen industry be confirmed, the Group plans to grow its green hydrogen capacity to over 2 GW by 2030.In the hydrogen segment, Eni is also studying other projects in Italy and in the UK.The present Understanding could be subject to subsequent binding actions that the parties involved will define according to the applicable law, included that which regulates operations among related parties.

Bush (CVN 77) participated in a prayer and remembrance service in the ship’s foc’sle Sept. 9, commemorating the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.Approximately 100 Sailors attended the service to show their support for America, honor lost heroes, and to give thanks for the lives that were spared that day.“My uncle worked about two blocks away from the World Trade Center,” said Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Fueling) 3rd Class Robert Villafane. “He was late for work on the day of the attacks. I think that might have saved his life.”Cmdr. Cameron H. Fish, the ship’s command chaplain, and Lt. Joel DeGraeve, command chaplain for Carrier Air Wing (CVW) Eight, hosted the non-denominational prayer service so that Sailors could come together to remember the events of 9/11.“We felt it was important to try and get the crew together to pray and remember as a unit, especially since it’s the 10th anniversary,” said Fish.Sailors like Aviation Ordnanceman Airman (AW) Maurice D. Rogers-Ashe and Rear Adm. Nora W. Tyson, commander Carrier Strike Group (CSG) Two, united to sing “God Bless America” and reflect on the events of Sept. 11, 2001. “I came to show my respect and honor those who have lost family and loved ones,” said RogersAshe.Participants watched a video displaying photos of service members, firefighters, and civilians that were lost that day as excerpts from former president George W. Bush’s speech played in the background. “I think it helps Sailors understand why they’re here,” said DeGraeve, “It helps them understand why we serve in the military.”George H.W. Bush is deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility on its first operational deployment conducting maritime security operations and support missions as part of Operations Enduring Freedom and New Dawn.[mappress]Source: navy, September 13, 2011; View post tag: Remembers Back to overview,Home naval-today USS George H.

USA: HSV Swift Marks Completion of SPS 2013 Mission

first_img View post tag: (HSV) Military Sealift Command-charted vessel HSV Swift (HSV 2) arrived to Mayport, Fla., May 23 to officially mark the completion of the Southern Partnership Station (SPS) 2013 mission.The 4th Fleet initiative, designed to strengthen civil and maritime services’ capabilities to respond to a variety of maritime missions, included teams of Riverine, Seabees, explosive ordnance disposal specialists, Marines and Navy Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) physical security specialists who worked closely with partners in Belize, Guatemala and Honduras to share knowledge and build interoperability.More importantly, it allowed members of the U.S. services and partners nations to build friendships.“It goes beyond our training,” Belizean coast guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Merlon Alvarez said. “When the Americans come, I feel as though we truly become a joint force and a family.”The Swift left Mayport, Fla., in mid-February with its first stop in Belize. From there the SPS mission continued in Guatemala and Honduras.U.S. Marine Corps and Seabee detachments remained in Honduras as the Swift successfully tested an Aerostat inflatable aircraft and Puma UAV that could possibly serve as future platforms to conduct Operation Martillo counter drug operations in the Caribbean Sea.The Aerostat and Puma UAV are equipped with state-of-the-art radars, cameras and sensors that could prove to be useful in detecting Transnational Organized Crime (TOC) organizations attempting to smuggle drugs and other illicit materials (guns, people, drug money) in the maritime and littoral environments. The Aerostat and Puma UAV were testing in actual counter drug operations.“Frankly, these platforms aren’t new to anybody, but it’s technology that we’re putting inside them and the application of these assets to a maritime environment, specifically the efforts of the Joint Interagency Task Force to combat the flow of drugs and other contraband by transnational organized crime, that’s new.” Rear Adm. Sinclair M. Harris, Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/U.S. 4th Fleet, said.Mission Commander, Cmdr. Bob Poling discussed the conclusion of a successful deployment.“It’s difficult to quantify how truly successful this SPS was,” said Poling. “We were able to work closely with three partner nations to improve our abilities to work together and improve maritime security in the Central American and Caribbean regions. More importantly, the professional and personal interactions between U.S. service members and our partner-nation hosts added a level of understanding that cannot be cultivated any other way than to get dirty while working and playing together.”Poling went on to say, “I think we’ve certainly made great strides in ensuring future operations between our nations happen smoothly.”COMUSNAVSO/COMFOURTHFLT supports U.S. Southern Command joint and combined full-spectrum military operations by providing principally sea-based, forward presence to ensure freedom of maneuver in the maritime domain, to foster and sustain cooperative relationships with international partners and to fully exploit the sea as maneuver space in order to enhance regional security and promote peace, stability, and prosperity in the Caribbean, Central and South American regions.[mappress]Press Release, May 23, 2013 Back to overview,Home naval-today USA: HSV Swift Marks Completion of SPS 2013 Mission View post tag: Marks Training & Education View post tag: SPS Share this article View post tag: Swift View post tag: Defence USA: HSV Swift Marks Completion of SPS 2013 Missioncenter_img May 23, 2013 View post tag: Defense View post tag: Naval View post tag: Mission View post tag: Navy View post tag: 2013 View post tag: News by topic View post tag: completionlast_img read more

Emanuela Ferrentino, an Italian navy officer, who was assigned to the ship through a personnel exchange program. She served as the assistant navigator and navigation division officer. Through her tireless efforts, she not only qualified to lead the bridge team as officer of the deck, but went on to earn her Surface Warfare Officer pin.“Lt. j.g. Ferrentino has been a vital part of our navigation team and I am proud to have pinned her as one of the U.S. Navy’s newest Surface Warfare Officers,” said Cmdr. Heidi Haskins, commanding officer.During their time at sea, many Sailors excelled on an individual level, helping one another achieve various watchstanding and warfare qualifications. Among their many accomplishments and career milestones, 113 Sailors earned their Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist qualification, 21 Sailors reenlisted, and 71 advanced in rate. Additionally, nine officers were pinned as Surface Warfare Officers.“This deployment was everything I thought it would be, challenging, trying and successful,” said Operations Specialist 1st Class Brandon Dorsey.James E.
