US Navy conducts second SeaRAM live-fire test in Spain

first_img View post tag: SeaRAM US Navy conducts second SeaRAM live-fire test in Spain View post tag: Raytheon August 17, 2016 The U.S. Navy has carried out a second live-fire test of the SeaRAM® anti-ship defense system installed on the USS Carney stationed in Rota, Spain.USS Carney thereby became the second Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer stationed in Rota, Spain to fire the missile system.On March 4, 2016, USS Porter became the first of four destroyer to employ the SeaRAM. You can watch the video of the USS Porter firing the missile here.The U.S. Navy said that by year end, all four 6th Fleet destroyers would be equipped with the system which replaces the Phalanx Close-In Weapon System’s 20mm gun with a missile launcher.According to Raytheon, the company in charge of manufacturing the system, the SeaRAM aboard USS Carney detected, tracked and engaged an inbound BQM-74E target, intercepting it with a RAM Block II missile in a mid-July test.“These test results are evidence of our strong partnership with the U.S. Navy that is working to rapidly deliver solutions to protect our warfighters,” said Rick Nelson, vice president of Raytheon’s Naval Area and Mission Defense product line. “SeaRAM adds an important layer of defense to the Rota, Spain DDG’s and can provide protection to many naval ships facing today’s most worrisome threats.”Intended to enlarge Phalanx’s keep-out range against evolving anti-ship missiles, rotary- and fixed-wing aircraft and other threats, SeaRAM Anti-ship missile defense systems use Phalanx Block 1B sensors and replace the gun with an 11-round Rolling Airframe Missile guide.SeaRAM is also aboard the Independence variant of the U.S. Navy’s littoral combat ships.

Major Australian industrial firm Sun Metals commits to 100% renewable energy

first_imgMajor Australian industrial firm Sun Metals commits to 100% renewable energy FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renew Economy:The Queensland zinc refiner Sun Metals has announced it will go 100 per cent renewables, and will add further capacity to pursue “green hydrogen” opportunities in transport and export in what is being regarded as one of the most significant developments in Australia’s energy transition.The decision by the South Korean owned Sun Metals refinery – the second biggest single energy user in Queensland, and one of the biggest in Australia – to reach 100 per cent renewables by 2040 has been described as a “tipping point” by Jon Dee, the Australian head of the RE100 initiative.“This commitment by Sun Metals to go 100% renewable by 2040 is a real game changer,” Dee said in a statement. “If Sun Metals can go fully renewable by 2040, there’s no reason why every other Australian refinery and smelter can’t do the same.”It is the second major Australian corporate entity to commit to the RE100 campaign in the past week, with retailer Woolworths announcing a 2025 target, and it takes means consumers of five terawatt hours a year of electricity have committed to source all of their needs from renewables, or about 2.5 per cent of the demand on the main grid. Sun Metals consumes around 1.1TWh a year for its refining processes.Sun Metals, wholly owned by Korean Zinc Corp, is already sourcing around 22 per cent of its electricity needs from solar, courtesy of the ground-breaking 125 Sun Metals solar farm it installed several years ago. That was the first solar farm to be co-located next to a major energy user in Australia, even though it has suffered issues from unspecified technical problems and grid constraints. However, its output is expected to increase as those issues are addressed.It now aims to reach 80 per cent renewables by 2030, through the addition of wind energy – although it is not clear whether this will be through the purchase of wind farms themselves, or a contract for their output. It will then seek other technologies such as batteries, biogas and hydrogen to fill the remaining gap, and also plans to invest in green (renewable) hydrogen to replace diesel on the site and as an export fuel in the future. It recently secured a $5 million grant from the Queensland government to develop one of north Queensland’s first renewable hydrogen production facilities.[Giles Parkinson]More: “Tipping point”: Queensland zinc refinery commits to 100 pct renewableslast_img read more
