Para 2030, se espera que el mercado de la energía eólica marina ascienda a 30.000 millones de libras esterlinas al año. Dando un salto en el tiempo hasta 2050, se prevé que la industria contribuya como mínimo a un tercio del suministro total de electricidad a nivel mundial.
Si bien esto es una gran noticia para las empresas de generación de energía, investigaciones recientes han demostrado que los costes asociados con el mantenimiento de los parques eólicos se duplicarán entre 2015 y 2020.
Para asegurar su lugar en el futuro panorama energético, proteger el valor y la producción de las turbinas eólicas mediante un mantenimiento eficaz será fundamental para lograr una ventaja competitiva.
Hay pasos que se pueden tomar ahora para reducir los costes de mantenimiento hoy y mantenerlos más bajos en el futuro.

Azure has been through many rounds of changes that have significantly affected the ways in which .NET and other developers interact with the platform.
The shift in strategy has been rocky at times. In 2011, technology reviewers described Microsoft Azure as a confusing platform with a difficult to use web-based interface and incomprehensible documentation. Since then, the teams working on the platform have gradually improved it, resulting in a much more user-friendly platform that offers a well-organized array of services.
Profitability in the marine and power generation sectors is affected by numerous factors, some of which have a dramatic influence on operational costs. Because many of these influences are external, operators must closely manage those that are within their control to strengthen profit margins.
At the top of the priorities list is efficiency, both in terms of processes and physical machinery. Even the smallest details can have an effect on profit, so controlling waste and maximizing uptime at every opportunity is crucial.

The Marin Community Foundation (MCF) was established in 1986 with the assets of a trust created by long-time Marin residents Leonard and Beryl H. Buck. From the start, MCF’s mission was to use philanthropic contributions to help improve the human condition and enhance the quality of life in Marin County, CA. An unintended consequence was that they were swimming in paper.
Following an analytics strategy set by the company’s C-level executives, MarineMax moved away from spreadsheet-based reporting processes several years ago, and built an enterprise-class business analytics platform based on IBM Cognos and IBM InfoSphere technologies.
One of the big challenges in search engine marketing is getting all of the volume you want from your campaign. However, the available volume in paid search is sometimes limited, and prevents you from getting to where you want to in your campaign. In other words, people only search so much on keywords related to your campaign, and there is nothing you can do with your paid search campaign that can change that. Getting at as much (profitable) volume as you can is what it ends up being all about.

Every minute, the equivalent of one garbage truck of plastic waste enters our oceans—a total of 8 million metric tons a year. This plastic waste litters the seafloor and floats on the surface in vast plastic patches, poisoning seabirds and other marine life. By the year 2050, one estimate suggests there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans. Founded in May 2013, social enterprise The Plastic Bank aims to tackle ocean pollution head-on.
The former Keppel Harbour was transformed into the vibrant marina-waterfront living precinct that it is today. To date, the Keppel Bay waterfront is lined by three iconic residential developments – Caribbean At Keppel Bay, Reflections At Keppel Bay and Corals At Keppel Bay – with a total of 2,464 apartments.
As the Keppel Bay precinct matures over the years, the marina-waterfront housing lifestyle has taken roots and offers an attractive living concept to prospective buyers.
Being situated on the mainland, Keppel Bay also have the advantage of being closer to amenities and have better accessibility and connectivity. Following the announced extension of the CCL to include three more stations (Keppel, Cantonment and Prince Edward) to close the circle, Keppel Bay will be directly connected to Marina Bay in the Downtown Core. When these stations are in operation by 2025, travel time between Keppel Bay and the CBD will be reduced by one-third of the current travel time.
