Ideol and Kerogen Capital to test waters for offshore wind-powered oil & gas platforms

first_imgIdeol stated that the focus of the initiative will be to combine the Damping Pool, its floating offshore wind solution, with Kerogen’s international offshore oil & gas expertise and network. “In addition to decreasing the greenhouse gas emissions, powering oil and gas platforms with offshore wind could offer commercial benefits such as increasing available sales volumes and reducing fuel operating costs,” said Jason Cheng, Managing Partner of Kerogen. Ideol has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Kerogen Capital to assess the benefits of using offshore wind to power oil & gas platforms. Back in 2018, the French Ideol secured EUR 15 million funding from Kerogen Capital in order to accelerate the commercialization of its floating foundation solution in key geographies.center_img “Teaming up with Ideol offers a combination of our respective expertise in upstream oil & gas and offshore wind to assess power to platform opportunities, starting with long-life projects in the North Sea area.” The collaboration aims to identify and promote differentiating value propositions when substituting hydrocarbon powered generators of oil & gas production platforms with floating wind systems to improve the operational, commercial and environmental sustainability of the offshore facilities. last_img read more

They have lost out on a lot of grant money just not following health guidelines by the state and federal government. Glad to see they are on the right track.

OPAA Food Management has partnered with USD 353, and three meal choices will be available to students during both breakfast and lunch.“In my last district, hot lunch participation increased significantly as students saw the choices that were available,” Wellington Superintendent Mark Whitener said.This May, the district selected Opaa! as their new food service provider. Last winter, the district submitted a Request for Proposal, then the notice was published in a regional newspaper, and the bidding companies made a presentation to the district committee. The committee evaluated each proposal based on Nutritional and Wellness Department of Education (KSDE) guidelines. The proposal that won was required to adhere to all state and federal child nutrition guidelines.“The staff visited other schools that contract out their food service and sampled the food from the companies that submitted bids,” Whitener said.With a mission statement of “Make Their Day,” Opaa! partners with school districts to create a child nutrition program to meet the needs of the students, while staying within state and federal guidelines. The company incorporates locally grown, farm fresh fruits and vegetables, with from scratch cooking, including oven-fresh rolls.For example, the first day of school three breakfast choices include: pancake sausage griddle, apple, fruit juice; cereal, cinnamon toast, apple, fruit juice; or oatmeal, cinnamon toast, apple, fruit juice. The three lunch choices on the first day are: chicken nachos w/white queso; Mexican pizza, fresh garden salad, Texas pintos, mandarin oranges, fresh fruit; or taco salad, Texas pintos, mandarin oranges, fresh fruit and cornbread.“Parents should expect meals that are not only nutritious but are tasty and appealing as well,” said Whitener.Each day, students will have two or more choices. For example, students can choose between the main entree, lasagna, or a cheeseburger, depending on the daily menu. High school students will have two hot choices each day or the salad bar.“I personally like the fact that students have choices,” Whitener said. “If the student doesn’t like the main entree, they may choose a burger, pizza, or a chicken sandwich, depending on the menu each day.  I also really like the offering of fresh fruits and vegetables each day.”Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
