NAMJets deliver crews to the winds on Sima Charters new vessel

Christening the SC Sapphire, 23M Crew Transfer Vessel

DENVER, CO, USA, April 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On March 21, 2018 in Maasluis, the Netherlands, the NAMJet Team took pleasure in witnessing the christening of Sima Charter’s 23m Crew Transfer Vessel (CTV), the SC Sapphire. Sima Charters operates a fleet of custom built Crew Transfer Vessels. They are a worldwide CTV company operating offshore and providing the best possible performance CTV. Established in 2000 and based in the Netherlands, Sima Charter vessels are specially designed to provide the most comfortable ride at sea.

Built by Neptune Shipyards in Aalst, the 23m SC Sapphire became the first CTV to be equipped with NAMJet’s TJ611HH high thrust waterjets. NAMJet waterjets are the only jets in the market that provide exceptional low to static speed thrust and are suitable to operate in very shallow, sandy, and abrasive waters without loss of efficiency. The TJ611HH is capable of up to 12 tonnes static bollard push in as shallow as 1.5 meters.

The 23M SC Sapphire is an all-aluminum monohull vessel with the structure based on the successful SC Amethyst’s sister vessel with Slide Hull designed by Vripack. The SC Sapphire is powered by triple Volvo DH16MH 651hp @ 1800 rpm engines, through Twin Disc MGX5146SC, 2.5:1 gearboxes to NAMJet High Thrust Waterjets model TJ611HH. The 23m SC Sapphire was created to provide comfortable and safe crew transfer at speeds of 25kts when servicing wind farms. This allows for operations in seas with a wave height above two meters.

NAMJet is an advanced marine propulsion systems manufacturer headquartered in Denver, Colorado, USA with a sales and engineering office in Southampton, UK. NAMJet has over 30 years of experience in manufacturing highly efficient waterjet propulsion systems for a wide variety of commercial, military, and workboat applications. The unrivaled bollard pull of NAMJet waterjets allows the 23m SC Sapphire to keep firmly secured to the wind tower and to provide an improved operating window when connected to offshore wind towers in various sea state conditions.

“NAMJet’s products offer incredible thrust, durability, and speed,” said Jim Ducker, President of NAMJet. “NAMJet’s have optimum thrust at lower speeds, have 2-3 times the impeller clearance of high-speed jets, and are rated for speeds of up to 35 knots!”

NAMJet is proud that Sima Charters chose their high thrust waterjets for their fifth custom 23m Crew Transfer Vessel SC Sapphire. “Bon voyage to the crew of the SC Sapphire from all of us at NAMJet,” concluded Jim.

About NAMJet
NAMJet is a Denver, USA based marine waterjet propulsion company, setting new standards in thrust and durability and innovation for the marine propulsion market. NAMJet was acquired by Birdon America in 2011 and moved production to Denver in 2014.

Graphene company’s investment oversubscription means full vision high tech initiatives will move forward

…the success we’re having in the lab tells me we’re poised to move into a leadership position in all of our fields.”

— Adam Small, CMO

MESA, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, April 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Phoenix, Arizona, April 23, 2018 — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Mesa-Arizona-based tech startup Urbix Resources has closed their Series A round of financing with an oversubscribed commitment of $3.5 million (US). In addition to current investors and management, this round included an international investment from a management company based in Mexico.

“It was gratifying to find ourselves in a position where our funding objectives were oversubscribed,” admits Executive Chairman Nicolas Cuevas. “This allows us to focus on our main initiatives including the construction of our low-cost/clean tech pilot purification facility and the construction of our proprietary pristine graphene reactor. This leads us to our goal of bringing graphene at a commercial scale to the market at about $1 per gram.”

Urbix has been generating excitement in the investment marketplace with their strong suite of technologies including a proprietary supercapacitor with capabilities exceeding those of all comers and a High Voltage Electrolyte that is currently in testing with BYD Co., the Chinese electric-vehicle maker backed by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Energy holding company.

“We’re talking about ground-breaking technologies,” says CMO Adam Small. “And the success we’re having in the lab tells me we’re poised to move into a leadership position in all of our fields.”

Part of Urbix’s attraction to investors is the very real income already being generated by sales of graphite drawn by the company’s commercial milling operations outside Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico and the graphene and graphene-based products being created in the company’s state-of-the-art lab in Mesa, Arizona.

“A big part of the work we’re doing right now is drawing a map for success,” says Vice-Chairman, Anthony J. Parkinson. “These are talented young men with big vision. It’s been my pleasure to guide them and help them make their vision a reality. Closing the Series A puts us all in a position to bring it home.”

INFINITY REAL ESTATE WINS HISTORIC PRESERVATION AWARD FOR REVITALIZATION OF 728 OCEAN DRIVE IN MIAMI BEACH

Center: Steve Kassin, David Berg, Infinity, 2018 Miami Beach Better Beach Awards

Historic Preservation Award

Local Real Estate Leaders Recognized by Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce at 6th Annual Better Beach Awards

Thanks to all who helped us achieve this recognition. We look forward to further contributing to Miami’s reputation as a number one international gateway destination and place to live, work and play.”

— David Berg, Partner, Infinity Real Estate

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, April 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Infinity Real Estate (“Infinity”) today was recognized for its transformative, historic redevelopment of 728 Ocean Drive property as the recipient of the Historic Preservation Platinum Award at the 6th Annual Better Beach Real Estate Awards. The annual event, which was presented and organized by the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce (“the Chamber”) and was sponsored by City National Bank and BCI Financial, honored influential leaders and projects that have had a profound impact on Miami’s local real estate over the past year. Award categories included historic preservation, innovative architecture, design, restoration, and environmental initiatives, among others.

The Historic Preservation Award recognizes a real estate company that revives a historical Miami Beach building site to current, adaptive re-use, while ensuring the building still maintains its cultural and historic identity. The building must meet approval from the Historic Preservation Board and obtain a Certificate of Operation for its new adaptive use.

Infinity Real Estate’s Manager Partner, Steve Kassin commented, “We are extremely humbled and gratified by this honor, and sincerely thank the Chamber for selecting our project as the winner of this prestigious award. We are hopeful that our work to restore this iconic property reflects Infinity’s commitment to historic preservation and best-in-class adaptive redevelopment.”

Infinity acquired 728 Ocean Drive in 2015 and quickly partnered with Zyscovich Architects to recreate and preserve the historic design of this noteworthy building, originally designed by Donald Reiff in 1953. With the gracious and unanimous support of the Historic Preservation Board, Infinity was able to pursue its vision and ultimately infuse over $5 million into this landmark property, bringing back many of its original “MiMo” design elements, including the clear circular Plexiglas domes, the stacked stone façade and the open-air stair that was featured as the set of the notorious chainsaw scene in the blockbuster film Scarface. The property was also thoroughly renovated for the first time in decades, activating its abandoned commercial space and bringing infrastructure, life safety systems and ADA accessibility up to code. The revitalized property is widely regarded as a case study of architecturally responsible and economically viable historic development.

David Berg, Partner at Infinity, added, “Our deepest appreciation goes out to the Chamber and to our partners, collaborators and friends on Ocean Drive and in the Miami Beach community who helped us achieve this recognition. We look forward to further contributing to Miami’s cultural reputation as a number one international gateway destination and place to live, work and play.”

This project marks Infinity Real Estate’s 27th historic redevelopment project across five cities, and its 4th in the Miami area.

PHILADELPHIA, PA, UNITED STATES, April 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Philadelphia residents have until Monday, April 30 to support one of three projects that are eligible for $20,000 in grant funding as part of the national Meet Me at the Park Earth Month campaign. The park projects include:
1) Carousel House Pool – Support for adaptive equipment for special needs aquatic programs at the Carousel House pool, as well as training for pool staff through Philadelphia Parks and Recreation.

3) Pennpack Environmental Center – Expanded programming support for Grow Up Green, a nature-based play and environmental education program that includes summer camps and special events through Philadelphia Parks and Recreation.

This is the fourth year NRPA and The Walt Disney Company have teamed up to celebrate Earth Month by helping to fund local park improvement projects in 16 U.S. cities. Additionally, NRPA and Disney will collaborate with recreation agencies in 50 states on a healthy living program that seeks to increase the amount of time children and families spend at parks by increasing access to play spaces.

During the month of April, the public will have the opportunity to vote for one of three projects in 15 select cities to receive $20,000 in grant funding. Voters can also nominate a city or town anywhere across the country to be entered for the chance to receive a $20,000 grant that will be used to support a local park within that community. The areas participating in Meet Me at the Park include one “wild card” city.

Started in 2014, the Meet Me at the Park Earth Month campaign seeks to improve local parks through projects that connect kids to nature, inspire healthy living and provide access to sports. These projects include activities such as environmental education programming, improving trails and refurbishing playgrounds or soccer fields. In 2017, more than 300,000 people were impacted by the Meet Me at the Park Earth Month campaign — including:

175,848 people with improved access to physical activity
