Our dependence on renewables is growing, and as a result, the wind turbines being built are taller, and more powerful. Yet with this growth, comes the challenge of keeping assets operational. The 2nd leading cause of accidents in wind turbines after blade failure, is fire.
At Coltraco Ultrasonics we continue to propel forward our Research & Development projects and are proud to be launching new products during the crisis, notably the Portatank® – the brand new portable ultrasonic liquid level indicator for inspecting industrial tanks up to 15 metres diameter.
With thanks to Mr Seiji Uehara for this video which clearly demonstrates the benefits of using an ultrasonic liquid level indicator rather than using radioactive level indicator.
I am writing to wish you all a very Happy Easter. To all our partners, distributors, agents, customers, suppliers, industry friends, in the UK we look ahead to the Easter weekend knowing that we will miss our families and loved ones who we cannot see due to lockdown. However, we will find joy in those we are isolated with and knowing that there is hope in the knowledge we are doing this for the safety of others.
2020 will see the explosive growth of data and with more reliance on data centres, safety of life and asset has never been more critical. In 2020, spending on data centre systems is expected to amount to 208 billion U.S. dollars*. In 2016 it was estimated that the cost of a data centre outage is $11,000 US dollars per minute**. These high value server rooms simply cannot afford the financial losses or downtime as a result of fire or damage to the facilities.
“The Chinese often say that encounter is a fate. I met Coltraco at the end of 2015. With the efforts of both parties, we have made breakthroughs in various fields in China. In this special period (covid-2019), I hope we can get through the difficulties together for a better future.”
“I am always happy when I am with Coltraco. They are one of the nicest people I have ever known. Coltraco is “Small but Strong”. That is our comapny motto, too. The devotion for the good service are shown by their sincerity and professional enthusiasm. I am sure Coltraco is one of the best role models in Engliand with Brexit.”
