SAL loads super-heavy module

first_imgThe super-heavy unit measured 42 m x 37 m x 36 m and has an overall volume of 54,353 cu m. SAL Heavy Lift accepted the project at short notice, only having two weeks to make all the necessary arrangements. Svenja’s on board equipment had to be modified to complete the job. The traverse had to be rigged and fastened at a certain angle; various grommets needed to be ordered and certified. Svenja used its two on board 1,000-tonne lifting capacity cranes in tandem to lift the module from a barge into the hold. Svenja is now making for Geoje in South Korea, transporting the module with open hatches and an overhang of 20 m.  www.sal-heavylift.comlast_img read more

South Africa’s underprivileged children learn to play music instruments

first_imgLast year we reported on how a music project for underprivileged children in South Africa was trying to raise enough money to buy music instruments.Until recently Iphuteng Primary school never had music theory and instruments as part of its curriculum.Now, instruments have been donated but the challenge lies in finding qualified musicians who can teach the children how to play.The school has now issued a plea to interested music teachers to volunteer to offer lessons to the passionate youngsters who dream of one day being professionals in the music industry.The Persistent Music Project gives the kids a purpose, a focus and a direction which they would not otherwise have.The founder of the music project hopes to be able to expand the mission to other schools in order to reach more kids in South Africa. This way, more kids will find it easier staying off the streets and such vices as drug abuse.“We are also looking to expand the music program to other primary and secondary schools of Alexandra so that music can be regarded as a subject in our area. And we are also looking forward to keep youth off the streets, drugs and crime by involving youth in such program,” William Bapela, founder of the Persistent Music Project, said.In a country with startling statistics like more than 70% of black South African children living in low-income households, Persistent Music Project is giving the children hope, and a chance to develop their talents and dream of one day playing in an orchestra.last_img read more
