first_imgSource: HyosungFrom left to right: Hyosung Vice Chairman Lee Sang-woon, Linde Korea President Kim Jeong-jin, Hyosung Chairman Cho Hyun-joon, Linde Korea Chairman Sung Baek-seok, Linde Korea Managing Director Jeong Sung-wookThe new plant will produce liquid hydrogen by applying Linde’s hydrogen liquefaction technology and system to byproduct hydrogen produced by Hyosung Chemical Yongyeon Plant.Hydrogen liquefaction technology liquefies hydrogen in a high-pressure state of the gas. Linde has the world’s most advanced technology in liquid hydrogen production.Both companies will invest in the development of a liquid hydrogen recharging infrastructure in time for the completion of the plant.Under their accord on the cooperative partnership on liquid hydrogen supply, they will set up about 120 hydrogen recharging stations – 50 new and 70 enlarged stations to fuel liquid hydrogen – in key points across the country.“Hydrogen is an eco-friendly energy source that can change existing carbon-centered economic structure. Its possibilities are endless,” Hyosung Chairman Cho Hyun-joon said.“The point of liquid hydrogen business sought by Hyosung is to store and transport hydrogen efficiently and safely. Investment this time will play a big role in invigorating the ecology of domestic hydrogen industry.” The two companies will invest 300 billion won ($245.4m) in a joint venture creating a value chain that covers everything about the setup and operation of liquid hydrogen production, transport and recharging facilities.The liquid hydrogen plant will be constructed on an area of about 30,000 square metres within the site of Hyosung Yongyeon plant in Ulsan.The facility will have an annual capacity production of 13,000 tonnes of liquid hydrogen – enough to fuel 100,000 sedans – making it the world’s single largest liquid hydrogen manufacturing facility.Groundbreaking is expected to take place in the first quarter of 2021 with the plan completed in 2022.last_img read more

Watch out for fake Facebook sales

first_imgPolice have warned people to be alert when attempting to buy items through Facebook after a man and his two friends were robbed at gunpoint when he responded to an advert about a car being sold in Manenberg.Manolito Fisher, 23, from Lotus River, saw an advert on a page called Cars Under 20k, on Friday September 9.He called the seller of the car for a viewing and was told to come to 102 Greatfish Avenue. He and two friends drove to Manenberg and when he got to the address he called the “seller” again who then told him that he was at the wrong house and should go to 122 Greatfish Avenue. “The man said that his father would be at his house waiting for us and that he was in a wheelchair.”Mr Fisher said when they arrived at the house, two men walked towards the car and asked him and his friends what they were doing in the area. “We told them that we were there to buy the car advertised on Facebook and they opened the door and said that they would show us where to go. I said but we are in front of the house and they don’t need to take us and then I felt something cold against my head and realised that it was a gun. He then told my friend who was driving to drive and asked me for the money. I said I don’t have the money on me, but he persisted,” said Mr Fisher. “I think he realised that I didn’t have it and gave up and that is when they robbed us,” he said. The trio were robbed of R80 cash and their cellphones. They were forced to drive around in Manenberg and to then drop the robbers back in Greatfish Avenue. “He told me ‘En nou kan jy ’* saak gaan maak’.”Police spokesperson Captain FC Van Wyk said a 27-year-old man was arrested the following day and 53-year-old man the next Monday, September 12. The pair appeared in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday September 13, on a charge of possession of a gun and armed robbery. Captain Ian Bennett, spokesperson for Manenberg police, said people must be more careful when buying items over the internet. “They need to question the price if it is way too cheap and raises suspicion. Ask who the people are and check if they are credible and ask more than one person. “Also ask questions about the car and check that it is registered to the sellers name. Go around to the address and see if the car is there and if it is in a dodgy area, don’t go through with the sale. Also don’t go alone and be alert,” said Captain Bennett.last_img read more

Castle Rock: The Complete First Season Blu-ray review

first_imgCredit: Warner BrosDeath row lawyer Henry Matthew Deaver (André Holland) returns to Castle Rock when he’s asked for by a man known only as The Kid (Bill Skarsgård) who was found in a cage underneath the Shawshank State Penitentiary. Henry battles his own past, which involved him disappearing as a child following the death of his father, and mysteriously returning days later. As Henry tries to get to The Kid, he’s kept away by new warden Theresa Porter (Ann Cusack), who is the replace for Dale Lacy (Terry O’Quinn), who committed suicide on his final day in the job. Who is The Kid and what’s his connection to Henry?Castle Rock is executive-produced by J.J. Abrams and based on the world of Stephen King, who also produces. The show takes the town of Castle Rock, which appears throughout King’s work, and crafts a brand-new mystery around it. Very much capturing the tone of King, the series is a slow-burn that’s designed squarely for hardcore fans of Stephen King. From the casting of Bill Skarsgård and Sissy Spacek, who play King’s characters Pennywise and Carrie in the movie adaptations, through to the many Easter Eggs planted throughout the series, Castle Rock plays like a love letter to the author’s devoted following.Castle Rock is a bit of a slog. It poses endless questions but is in absolutely no rush to explain any of them. Who is The Kid? Did Henry kill his father? Why does neighbour Molly Strand (Melanie Lynskey) behave so shiftily for seemingly no reason? These are all valid questions but don’t expect to get answers to them any time soon. Instead the mystery is drawn out across 10 episodes and it moves along at a glacial pace.For me, Castle Rock highlights the problem with a lot of Stephen King’s work. While King hasn’t been involved in the writing here, the creators Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason have paid homage to King’s tendency to build a good premise but fail to execute it satisfactorily. We all remember the ending of IT don’t we? (the book and original mini-series). Take that as a case in point. The slow drip here will prove to be a turn-off for a lot of viewers and those who do stick with it, may find by the final episode that the resolution isn’t as satisfactory as they’d hoped e.g. classic Stephen King.The cast is solid and of a high calibre. André Holland is a great leading man and Bill Skarsgård adds to his repertoire of weird and wonderful characters. Sissy Spacek, Ann Cusack, Melanie Lynskey and Terry O’Quinn bring the gravitas and they are all very good in their roles. To be fair, I can’t fault the cast for anything.The Blu-ray release is packed with extras including two new featurettes – Blood on the Page and A Clockwork of Horror – and Inside the Episode spotlights for every episode.Castle Rock has promise but for me the payoff wasn’t worth the investment. The slow-moving pace and the endless questions (not all of which are answered) make the series a slog and I can’t see anyone other than hardcore Stephen King fans sticking out all 10 episodes. Abrams brings an element of his iconic, and highly flawed series, Lost into the mix and if that doesn’t ring alarm bells, then good luck getting through Castle Rock.Cast: André Holland, Melanie Lynskey, Bill Skarsgård, Jane Levy, Sissy Spacek, Ann Cusack, Terry O’Quinn Created by: Sam Shaw, Dustin Thomason Certificate: 18 Duration: 500 mins Released by: Warner Bros Buy Castle Rocklast_img read more
