In The Spotlight
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Signed on September 20th by Governor Jerry Brown, Bill 2061 (D-Frazier) will increase the gross vehicle weight limit for diesel-alternative trucks to 82,000 pounds and therefore pave the way for rapid adoption of clean near-zero heavy-duty trucks powered by Renewable Natural Gas (RNG).
AB 2061 removes a critical barrier to the improvement of air quality in disadvantaged communities that are impacted by polluting diesel trucks, such as the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, enabling the use of cleaner fuels in heavy-duty vehicles. The Los Angeles Times today reported that Southern California has endured three months without one day of clean air, violating federal smog standards for 87 consecutive days.
The following is a statement by Greg Roche, vice president, Clean Energy Fuel Corp. (Nasdaq: CLNE):
“Providing the weight allowance enables fleets to operate natural gas and other alternative technology trucks without being at a disadvantage to diesel trucks. Many trucking applications operate under the weight limitations set by state and federal laws. Enabling natural gas trucks to operate with the same payload as a diesel truck is good for trucking economics and good for the environment.
“Assembly Member Jim Frazier is a transportation visionary who once again found a way to help California’s goods movement industry more easily transition to cleaner trucks without sacrificing a trucks payload. It is innovative leaders like Assembly Member Frazier that will bring practical incentives that bring industry to the table to advance clean air throughout the sector.”
The transportation sector is responsible for about 40 percent of California’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and more than 80 percent of the state’s NOx, or smog-forming emissions. Making the switch from diesel to near-zero trucks fueled by RNG, such as Clean Energy’s Redeem™, is vital to achieving the state’s GHG reduction goals and cleaning the air around California’s transportation corridors. Near-zero engines are certified by the EPA and California Air Resource Board to have 90 percent lower emissions of smog-forming NOx than today’s heavy-duty engine standard. Studies by the University of California, Riverside have found that NOx emissions from near-zero engines are 99 percent cleaner than in-use diesel engines. RNG reduces climate pollutants compared to diesel by 70% to even over 100% depending on the renewable energy source.

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Sept. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SkySpecs, the award-winning provider of robotic solutions for the wind energy industry, today announces that they've officially inspected and analyzed over 33,000 wind turbine blades with their fully automated drone solution. The company's onshore and offshore inspections span the globe, and their newly-released software solution, Horizon, enables customers to analyze inspection data and manage their fleet maintenance.
"Because our inspection process is extremely measurable and repeatable, SkySpecs is able to observe the same damages and draw correlations from year to year. We're able to tell you whether damage has changed in size or if severity has gotten worse, and whether repair has become more urgent. We're starting to see owners use this data to develop more predictive repair strategies," said SkySpecs CTO Tom Brady.
SkySpecs reached several milestones in 2018:
- Operational in 6 countries and 3 continents, onshore and offshore
- 225 unique wind farms inspected over the last 18 months
- Reached a record of 1,500 towers - 4,500 blades - inspected in a 30-day period
- Inspected both the largest operational wind turbine and the largest installed wind turbine in the world in collaboration with Ørsted.
"SkySpecs is the only drone inspection company in the world operating at this scale," says Ben Marchionna, SkySpecs' Director of Global Operations. "Our proprietary automation software and customized drone solution enable our global inspection teams to work faster and safer, and gather data more reliably and repeatably than any other solution on the market today."
SkySpecs currently offers an end-to-end blade inspection and software solution that enables wind farm professionals to collect, manage, and analyze their blade data with ease. Their core technology lies in the flight automation software on the drone and Horizon, cloud-based data analytics, management, and planning software.
SkySpecs will be exhibiting at the WindEurope conference 25-28 September 2018.
