The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is conducting a federal environmental assessment of the proposed Marine Terminal Project on the North Shore of the Saguenay, located in Quebec.The project, proposed by the Saguenay Port Authority, includes construction and operation of a new multi-user marine terminal to service the north shore of the Saguenay River at the municipality of Sainte-Rose-du-Nord, located approximately 45 kilometers from the city of Saguenay.The project calls for the construction of a wharf, a ship loader, silos, concentrate handling facilities and related buildings. An access road to the wharf 1 to 1.5 kilometer in length will have to be built.The berthing capacity of the wharf would be designed to accommodate bulk cargo vessels with a minimum of 50,000 deadweight tonnage.This is the third of four opportunities for the public to comment on this project. All comments received will be considered public.Deadline for sending comments is October 15, 2016.[mappress mapid=”23000″]
Norwegian seismic player, Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) has seen a vessel-activity drop in the third quarter of 2016, the company informed on Monday.In the Q3 the vessel utilization on the contracted basis was 33 percent compared to 35 percent in the corresponding period in 2015.On the multi-client seismic basis, the vessel utilization was 45 percent, compared to 48 percent in Q3 2015.During the quarter, the company warm stacked the vessel Ramform Vanguard and recorded approximately 20 days as stacked.PGS said it expects the vessel to remain warm-stacked over the winter.In 2015, the company cold-stacked five 3D vessels, namely Ramform Challenger, Ramform Explorer, Ramform Valiant, Ramform Viking and Sanco Sword.

Keysight Technologies and National Applied Research Laboratories (NAR Labs), Taiwan, announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding to establish a strategic partnership on research and development of 5G communication technologies. Both parties are committed to working together on the 5G enabling technologies as well as prototype verification and evaluations with a goal of enhancing future Taiwan wireless communication innovations.The partnership between Keysight and National Chip Implementation Center (CIC) of NAR Labs started with mmWave front-end circuit design technology. This collaboration will lead to the launch of the next generation of high-speed broadband mmWave wireless communications experimental networks. This system will include a Keysight PSG Vector Signal Generator, 12 GSa/S Arbitrary Waveform Generator and an Infiniium Oscilloscope. Their SystemVue 5G Baseband Verification Library will accompany these world-class hardware solutions. This advanced software library dramatically increases productivity for system architects and baseband physical layer (PHY) designers by providing trusted algorithmic-reference and signal processing capability for 5G technology research.CIC performs advanced research in 5G technology under the Taiwan government’s strong support. The successful operation on high-speed broadband mmWave wireless communications experimental networks will meet local industrial companies’ measurement challenges and contribute to value-added services in order to fulfill the government’s technology-driven economic objectives. Their engineers will be using the SystemVue 5G Baseband Verification Library from Keysight. This will help speed up their work moving from design to test to the verification of their prototypes.“Keysight is actively involved in 5G standards development and is fully committed to innovating the solutions needed to accelerate deployment of the next generation of wireless communications. That’s why we are so proud to be collaborating with NAR Labs on 5G communication-link technology. It not only represents a significant advance in the realization of 5G, but also paves the way for future research and development of mmWave communication systems” – said Allen Chang, Keysight Taiwan general manager.
U.S. Cellular has selected Ericsson to provide 5G equipment and services for 24, 28 and 39 GHz mm-Wave frequencies to support consumer and enterprise 5G use cases. In addition, Ericsson will provide 4G Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) equipment and services as U.S. Cellular continues its 5G modernization program.Michael Irizarry, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of U.S. Cellular, stated that they highly value their long relationship with Ericsson to provide cutting-edge network service to the customers. Working with Ericsson to deliver and deploy these solutions helps them deliver fast, reliable connectivity for customers in urban and rural areas, as they continue to build a more powerful network with the latest 5G technology.This new agreement marks a further expansion of Ericsson’s collaboration with U.S. Cellular. In late 2019, the company selected Ericsson as a network equipment vendor for its 5G network, including 5G New Radio (NR) hardware and software in states such as Iowa and Wisconsin. And this year, Ericsson helped U.S. Cellular increase mobile broadband capacity during the COVID-19 pandemic in parts of Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, New Hampshire, Maine and North Carolina. The move aided U.S. Cellular in successfully managing the increased demand for data from its customers.Rob Johnson, Head of Customer Unit Regional Carriers for Ericsson, said that Ericsson has a long history of working with U.S. Cellular, and he is excited to see the relationship grow even stronger as they support U.S. Cellular on their 5G journey. By supplying 24, 28 and 39 GHz mmWave high-band and CBRS mid-band radios along with industry leading 4G and 5G products and services, Ericsson will enable U.S. Cellular’s customers to take advantage of all of the speed and versatility that 5G networks have to offer.The high band spectrum equipment Ericsson will provide will help U.S. Cellular customers experience faster speeds than ever before. This type of 5G both enhances the mobile broadband services to phones and tablets and allows for fiber-like speeds for Fixed Wireless Access, FWA, in areas with limited high-speed broadband options. U.S. Cellular is beginning its multi-year deployment of 5G mm-Wave, with commercial availability planned for 2021.
