World's largest synthetic fuels site
NiSoft rolled out eclipse to Sasol Secunda in South Africa in 2009. The Secunda plant is a synthetic fuel facility which uses coal liquefaction to produce petroleum like synthetic crude oil from coal. The process used by Sasol is based on the Fischer–Tropsch process. It is the largest coal liquefaction plant in the world. Secunda consists of two production units. The Sasol II unit was constructed in 1980 and the Sasol III unit in 1984. It has total production capacity of 160,000 barrels per day (25,000 m3/d). The Sasol III Steam Plant has a 301 m (988 ft) tall chimney which consists of a 292 m (958 ft) high windshield and four reinforced concrete flues which make it the tallest structure in South Africa.
First hybrid desalination plant in the middle east
Fujairah power and desalination plant is a hybrid plant at Qidfa' , Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates. When constructed, the Fujairah plant was the first hybrid plant in the Middle East, and the largest desalination hybrid plant in the world. The Fujairah plant has an installed power capacity of 760 MW and it produces 455,000 cubic meters (16,100,000 cu ft) of water per day. It is a natural gas-fired plant supplied from the Dolphin Gas Project through the Al Ain-Fujairah pipeline. Its annual consumption is 1.4 billion cubic meters (bcm) (49 billion cu ft) of natural gas. NiSoft implemented eclipse at Fujiarah in 2010.
The first public power station was the Edison Electric Light Station
The first public power station, Edison Electric Light Station, was built in London and went into operation in January 1882. An initiative of Thomas Edison, the power station had a Babcock and Wilson boiler which powered a 125 horsepower steam engine, that drove a 27 tonne generator called Jumbo - named after a famous elephant!
20% of fatalities were attributed to inadequate hazardous energy control procedures
In a study conducted by the United Auto Workers (UAW), 20% of the fatalities (83 of 414) that occurred among their members between 1973 and 1995 were attributed to inadequate hazardous energy control procedures, specifically lockout/tagout procedures.
The TauTona Mine, the world's deepest mine, is 3.9 kilometres (2.4 mile) deep.
The TauTona Mine or Western Deep No.3 Shaft is a gold mine in South Africa. At 3.9 kilometres (2.4 miles) deep, it is home to the world's deepest mining operations.
The deepest oil platform in the world sits 535 metres (1754 feet) above the seabed
Petronius is a deepwater compliant tower oil platform in the gulf of Mexico. The platform is 609.9 metres (2,001 feet) high although only 75 metres are visible above water. Construction of the platform began in 1997 and the 4,000 ton North Module was installed in November 1998. An attempt to install the slightly smaller South Module the following month was less successful, with the unit ending up on the seabed. A replacement module was installed in May 2000. Around 8,000 m³ (50,000 barrels) of oil and 2 million m³ (70 milllion cubic feet) of natural gas are extracted daily from the rig.
