5G in Ports will Protect the Environment and Foster Efficiency

It seems as if every self-respecting member of the online community has an opinion on 5G as a benchmark of progress or, on the contrary, a mythical threat. It is unlikely that this vociferous debate will be resolved any time soon, but in the meantime trials are currently being conducted in the world’s ports, including the Port of Riga, which will enable this technology to be used for very specific solutions that facilitate environmental protection and are thus vital to human health and safety, as well as the efficiency of port operations. This, in turn, is the basis for competitiveness and the higher economic welfare of society.

THE WORLD residential yacht takes delivery of Miko Plasters polar kit prior to Northwest Passage expedition

Preparations for the largest privately-owned residential yacht, THE WORLD, to sail the Northwest Passage across Canada from Nuuk, Greenland to Nome, Alaska this summer have included the purchase of a Miko Plasters Polar Kit as defence against the risk of being holed by ice. A team from Oslo-based Miko Marine AS flew to Reykjavik, Iceland in early August where they demonstrated the techniques developed for applying a magnetic patch to seal any hole caused by accidental contact with hard ice as might occur in open water or drift ice. Crew members were able to practice the simple but unfamiliar methods used to close a hole sustained from above the waterline to a few meters down without endangering a diver in freezing sea conditions.
