Superyacht Ulysses Equipped with 8 Heavy-duty Cranes
One of the world’s largest dedicated luxury explorer yachts, the 107 meter Ulysses, is equipped with eight PALFINGER MARINE cranes in total. Two heavy duty foldable knuckle boom cranes, four extension booms (type PK 90002 M) and two smaller compact cranes. In March 2016 the yacht was delivered to her owner. Ulysses is the first private superyacht undertaken by Norwegian shipbuilder Kleven and reaches a top speed of 16 knots. Ulysses can accommodate 60 guests over seven decks and offers amenities including a helicopter landing pad, helicopter garage and a swimming pool.
New Portable Power System from SWE
Southwest Electronic Energy announced the launch of POW-R Tote, a rugged, lightweight, 12V/117Ah portable power system which provides compact-convenient energy for wherever standard power sources are unavailable. About the size of a lunchbox, and weighing 23 pounds, the eco-friendly POW-R Tote uses safe, powerful Lithium-Ion battery technology to deliver two times longer run time and two times more power at half the weight when compared to a typical 12V lead acid battery commonly used in similar applications.
