Enemalta engineers' union against power link to Sicily
Enemalta engineers' union against power link to SicilyThe Enemalta Professional Officers' Union has come out against the proposed submarine cable connecting Sicily and Malta.

"Questions arise whether the security of supply will be threatened at the expense of reducing emissions. The submarine cable is a real time provider of electricity and given the scenario of a cable fault occurring when 200MW are being supplied, the electricity network in Malta will surely collapse and plunge the whole nation in darkness with very serious consequences for the whole business community on the island. To add insult to injury repairing a fault at sea is not an easy task especially if the elements of nature are against you. The cable interconnection has to be evaluated vis-à-vis the political, economical and social implications it may have."

Energy recovery from waste: Where waste is no longer wasted

by Ing Nicholas Sammut

This article explains the process of energy recovery systems for both the disused Maghtab and Ta’ Zwejra Landfills.

First of all, there is a clear distinction between energy recovery systems for uncontrolled dumps (such as the former dump at Maghtab) and for engineered landfills, as is the case for the Ta’ Zwejra and Ghallis facilities. Both the dump at Maghtab and the Ta’ Zwejra engineered landfills are located within the Maghtab Waste Management Complex, and both are no longer operational. However, this is basically where the similarities end. The differences in land filling patterns have resulted in emissions with very different characteristics.

Legal action 'likely' after Safi crane accident
Crane - photo by www.timesofmalta.comThe Occupational Health and Safety Authority was likely to take legal action against people involved in the crane accident in Safi on Monday, CEO Mark Gauci said.

Preliminary investigations suggest there was negligence, he said, adding, however, it was still early to specify who the action would involve. It could be the developer, the contractor, the project coordinator and supervisor, the crane owner or its operator.

Call for Balance in Theory, Practice
If university aspired to excel in engineering, science and technology, it had to invest considerably in research and innovation programmes, according to Ian Buhagiar, an engineering student.

The lack of practical instruction in university courses was strengthening the idea that university was simply churning out academics, he said during yesterday's graduation ceremony at the university's Sir Temi Zammit Hall.
