The Green Machine |

The vice president of Chevrolet Global Marketing and Strategy Chris Perry said that Chevrolet Green Zone will provide solar charging stations at their dealerships as their commitment to renewable energy projects. The American Chevrolet in Modesto, California and at Al Serra Auto Plaza in Grand Blanc, Michigan dealerships will be the first United States dealerships to have solar-powered electric charging stations. They are calling these solar canopies the ” green zone”. Each solar canopy generates enough electricity for up to 4,500 charges per vehicle annually.  They are investing $7.5 Million in Sunlogics, a solar panel manufacturing and development company that will supply the panels and install the dealer charging stations. Both American Chevrolet and Al Serra Chevrolet have partnered with Sunlogics for the installation of their Green Zones.                                                                                                                         Chris Perry said that just one of these canopies provides enough renewable energy to power two to three homes per year or more than 25 percent of a dealership’s energy consumption.   He said that they will put a lot of power back into the grid.                                                                                                     Companywide, GM said that 1.4 percent of its U.S. plants’ energy consumption comes from renewable resources, and it is one of the leading users of renewable energy in the manufacturing sector. General Motors is planning to double its solar output globally from 30 megawatts to 60 megawatts by 2015.  
Renewable energy makes good business sense; it helps to reduce the impact of the manufacturing industry on the environment.   GM is the auto industry's leading user of renewable energy.   GM is also working on towards profiting from the fast growing solar business. The 2011 Chevrolet Volt ranks 2 out of 21 Upscale Midsize Cars.  GM vision...

    • Drilling Fluid Mud Cleaner Application http://www.kosunservices.com/solids_control_equipment/drilling_fluid_mud_leaner.html KOSUN QZS series high effective mud cleaner is the second or third stage separation equipment of drilling liquid, which will deal with the mud after being treated by the first grade separation equipment. The barite will be recovered and cuttings which are bigger than barite will be removed. Then the barite in the underflow will flow into circulation tanks through the screens when the weighted mud passes while the particles that are bigger than mesh will be removed. Features & Benefits of Mud Cleaner: 1. Polyurethane (PU) Material for desander and desilter cones. 2. Desander cones can be installed between one and three 10”desander cones, each cone can process 500GPM and makes a separation between 40 and 100 microns. 3. Desilter cones can be installed between eight and twenty 4”or 5”desilter cones ,each cone can process 80 GPM, and makes a separation between 15 and 75 microns. 4. Mechanical Deck Adjustable while operation for reliable performance. 5. Compact design with small footprint, with top feed and wire feed two option. 6. Hook-strip shaker screen for fast screens changing with PWP and PMD screens. http://www.kosunservices.com/solids_control_equipment/drilling_fluid_mud_leaner.html
