MELBOURNE, Fla., Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- AML Superconductivity & Magnetics ("AML" or the "Company"), the world leader in the development of magnet-based applications, is pleased to announce global recognition of its Double-Helix™ technology, including by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) in the United States and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Europe.

Initially invented in the late 90s by a team led by AML CTO and Co-founder Dr. Rainer Meinke, Double-Helix™ magnet technologies today include a comprehensive and growing intellectual property portfolio including 14 active patents comprised of over a 100 invention claims.

"Our IP includes enabling geometries and the implementation and manufacturing pathway for a family of novel magnetic solutions. This pathway led to enabling superconducting and copper-based magnet solutions with new 3D printed material based solutions in development. We produced, tested, and validated this at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in 2001," stated Dr. Meinke.

At the core of AML's application development process is CoilCAD™. A proprietary design and manufacturing software platform, which dramatically accelerates time to market by exactly converting a specific theoretically "perfect" magnetic field of virtually any shape, into a fully functioning reality. As a result, magnet based products and solutions can achieve unprecedented capabilities and performance. Private and government organizations have sought out Double-Helix™ for numerous applications including, motors and generators, charged particle beam optics for particle accelerators and cancer treatment, such as proton and carbon therapy.

"We are extremely proud and excited to have the international science community independently validate our technology and its high value to society and industry. The fact that others have tried and failed to patent our configurations proves the commercial value of this technology," added Mark Senti, CEO and Co-Founder of AML.

AML has carefully developed and streamlined the process for research and industry participants to license and utilize AML's solutions for high-impact applications.

"The path to manufacturing these magnets goes through AML, we're here to be your partner for enabling and game-changing applications," affirmed Mr. Senti.

ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced increasing momentum surrounding customer adoption of the company's Asset Performance Management (APM) solutions, an integral component of the Industrial Software Platform. Through investments in the cloud, advanced machine learning and augmented reality (AR), coupled with new partnerships, the company empowers customers to maximize their return on capital investment and to improve profitability.

"Defining and executing an asset performance strategy is a critical component to improving productivity while safeguarding business continuity," said Kim Custeau, Asset Performance Management Business Lead at Schneider Electric. "We have been delivering proven, industry leading asset performance solutions for nearly 30 years, and continue to invest in a long-term strategy to drive innovation in this area. Our focus is to provide real value to our customers by empowering them to maximize return on capital investment and improve profitability. We are proud to see our customer results speak for themselves with significant reported savings."

"Industrial IoT (IIoT) and Industrie 4.0 provide new opportunities to improve overall business performance, particularly for APM. For owner-operators, this includes operational improvements largely involving improved asset reliability," said Ralph Rio, Vice President Enterprise Software at ARC Advisory Group. "Users have reported that moving from preventive maintenance to predictive or prescriptive approaches provided a 50 percent savings in maintenance labor and MRO materials. With predictive and prescriptive maintenance, near-zero unplanned downtime for critical equipment can be achieved." 


Calgary, Alberta (February 5, 2018) – The Petroleum Services Association of Canada (PSAC) is extremely disappointed and concerned that the Government of British Columbia has announced that it is proposing “a second phase of regulations to improve preparedness, response and recovery from potential spills” related to pipelines transporting liquid petroleum products. Over two years, stringent research and studies were conducted by the National Energy Board, the Canadian Energy Assessment Agency and the BC Environmental Assessment Office for the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline. The result of this rigorous process was to approve the expansion of Trans Mountain and to declare it to be in the national interest by the Government of Canada.

Further proposed study and regulations by the BC government can only be viewed as yet another tactic to deny to land-locked provinces, vital access to tidewater that BC freely enjoys and all while pursuing export opportunities for its own petroleum products. “This is not the time for inter-provincial trade wars as we pursue free trade agreements with the US and Asian countries,” says Mark Salkeld, President & CEO of PSAC. “Now is the time for the Government of Canada to uphold Canadian rule of law and our constitution.”
“Investment capital is already fleeing Canada due to competitive concerns. Lack of certainty for major project development and infrastructure will not help but only serve to drive away even more potential investment and with it Canadian jobs and economic prosperity,” continued Mark Salkeld.

The oil and natural gas industry is the leading contributor of private capital investment in this country supporting over 640,000 jobs across the country and thousands of businesses, including over 700 in BC. The industry’s responsible development of our natural resources also provides the funds for technical innovation, research and development and clean-tech to improve environmental performance and reduce GHG emissions. 
Canada is already losing billions of dollars a year having only the US as its one customer for oil and natural gas negatively affecting job creation and funding for health care and education while the US moves to become a leading exporter, reaping benefits that could be ours.

“Pipelines are the safest way to transport our energy which supplies us with the fuel we need for our vehicles, planes and transport for our food and other products; the fuel that provides us with our quality of life that so many take for granted and that those in developing countries who live in energy poverty can only dream of,” says Scott Van Vliet, Chair of PSAC and CEO of Environmental Refuelling Systems Inc.  “We may want to move to renewable energy but it will take years and right now we need all forms of energy. Canada has one of the most robust regulatory regimes in the world with leading environmental standards. Canadians should be proud to supply the world with our responsibly developed oil and natural gas for a better quality of life.” 

The Petroleum Services Association of Canada is the national trade association representing the service, supply and manufacturing sectors within the upstream petroleum industry. As the voice of Canada’s petroleum service, supply and manufacturing sector, PSAC advocates for its members to enable the continued innovation, technological advancement and in-the-field experience they supply to Canada’s energy explorers and producers, helping to increase efficiency, improve safety and protect the environment.
