Host Communities Push Projects to Sustain Travis AFB

first_imgOfficials from the communities that host Travis Air Force Base in northern California are considering several projects to support the installation.Under one proposal, Solano County would issue bonds to finance the construction of a civil engineering facility that would allow the base to consolidate more than 50 scattered engineering operations and buildings, reported the Daily Republic. A new facility would make the base more efficient and free up space needed for flight operations, said Vacaville Mayor Len Augustine, who traveled to Washington, D.C., last week with colleagues from Fairfield and the county to promote Travis on Capitol Hill and at the Pentagon.The budget for the project, which does not yet have a specific timeline, is between $20 million and $30 million, Augustine said.“Our plan is we want to move forward with the base as quickly as possible,” said David White, city manager for Fairfield.The delegation also discussed plans to develop a 70-acre parcel under the Air Force Community Partnership Program. The plan is intended to provide a new source of revenue for the installation through a lease for the property.“Nothing is on paper, so anything is possible,” Augustine said. “But I don’t think it would be housing. It would more likely be commercial and maybe some light industrial.”The delegation also discussed efforts to secure a more reliable water source for Travis. With several of the base’s existing sources expected to end, the installation intends to develop more groundwater sources. At the same time, Travis is discussing the possibility of obtaining a secondary water source from Fairfield or Vacaville, according to the story. Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Lithium imports crucial for Teslas Gigafactory in India

first_imgImports of Lithium are crucial for US-based electric car manufacturer Tesla Motors’ chief executive Elon Musk’s plan to set up a Gigafactory in India, as the country does not have enough reserves of the rare metal to support making of lithium-ion batteries, according to analysts.Lithium is a rare metal used in manufacturing of batteries to increase their capacity and also helpful in reducing the size of battery boxes compared to other battery technologies.”From a manufacturing-in-India perspective, the country doesn’t have any Lithium deposits, so it is going to be hard. Unless we import Lithium ore, which is available in Bolivia, Argentina and Australia, manufacturing cannot be supported in India,” Business Standard quoted Mridula Dixit, principal research scientist, Centre for Study of Science, Technology and Policy (CSTEP), as saying.However, Australia could become a major source for imports of Lithium ore, as the trade ties between the two nations have improved in the past. India has entered into an agreement with Australia for Uranium supply to its nuclear reactors.”We are not well-placed in terms of raw materials. The supply chain needs to be worked out. Also, making the batteries requires a very controlled environment,” said Dixit, who has extensive exposure to lithium-ion technologies.”Given India’s lack of expertise, I see global manufacturers bringing in their technology and manufacturing processes first, in the next five to 10 years; only after that would we be able to have local players gaining expertise and beginning to manufacture in India” Dixit added.Musk, the founder of Tesla Motors, has recently hinted at setting up a Gigafactory in India to manufacture lithium-ion batteries, taking into the problem of power shortage in the rural areas of the country, which holds a huge potential for such batteries.During his visit to the US in September, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had held discussions with Musk at the Tesla campus in Silicon Valley on the potential of having a battery making facility and other renewable energy technologies in India.Tarun Mehta, co-founder of Ather Energy, an electric vehicle start-up, sees the necessity to have  hundreds of Gigafactories in the country, as lithium-ion batteries can “compete with lead acid batteries in cost.””One Gigafactory can produce just enough cells for half a million Tesla cars. Globally, we produce 65 million cars and a lot more two-wheelers. If all of them were to go electric over the next decade or two, you are looking at 100-plus Gigafactories at least,” said Mehta.last_img read more

Infosys working on GST despite uncertainty over passage of bill

first_imgInfosys is continuing its work on developing a technology platform for the proposed goods and services tax (GST), even as the uncertainty persists over the tax reform’s passage in Parliament.Bengaluru-based Infosys had secured the contract to develop the technology framework for the GST for Rs 1,380 crore.Prakash Kumar, CEO of the Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN), was in Bengaluru on Monday to assess the progress made on the project, The Economic Times reported, citing sources close to the developments.”From our end, the project is going ahead as per plans — the delay in the Bill getting passed has not stalled anything,” said an Infosys executive, adding: “If not this session, there’s every chance that the Bill will be passed in the next session. In such a scenario, the technology framework for the GST has to be ready. So, as of now, the project is still going ahead at full steam.” The Modi government was forced to delay the passage of GST bill “indefinitely”, after it failed to get support from Opposition parties in the Rajya Sabha, where it does not have a majority. The government has now postponed the deadline for GST roll-out to 1 June from 1 April, 2016.But Kumar said the project is being carried out as planned.”We are already working on the IT framework,” he said. “It’s going on as planned. You don’t develop these kind of applications in one month, it takes time.”Infosys declined to comment on whether it is continuing with the project.”In case the government makes some changes, we’ll incorporate that. That’s the way it was planned,” said Kumar.”The three most important functionalities in the online system are registrations, returns and payments. We are closely monitoring the passage of the GST Bill and as of now aiming for the system to be ready by April-May 2016, with the key functionalities in place,” said Anurag Dua, director, government and public sector, at PwC.last_img read more
