The innovative solution developed by an Estonia start-up won the first prize in the world’s largest exhibition of sheet metal working industry

Fractory.co, founded in Tartu one year ago, has won the title of the best start-up in EuroBLECH, the world's largest exhibition of the metal working technology held in Germany, with a solution that radically accelerates the production and ordering process of metal companies.

Latvian company SPH Engineering helps locate aircraft buried under Greenland ice with the help of GPR and drone integrated system

An expedition was carried out in Greenland this past July that, using technology developed by Latvian company SPH Engineering – a ground penetrating radar (GPR) and drone integrated system – managed to find a World War II aircraft abandoned “in the middle of nowhere”, buried under approximately 100 meters of ice.

Pothole detection system irons out the bumps

Drivers are facing a “pothole crisis”’, made worse this year in some areas by the “Beast from the East” arctic air-mass, which delivered icy conditions that further contributed to shattered road surfaces.

A pothole was repaired every 21 seconds on average in England and Wales during the past year and harsh impacts can also cause damage that results in hefty repair bills for car owners.

Viking Grace transforms into a sailing ship

Viking Line starts collaboration with the winds of the Baltic Sea. The M/S Viking Grace is the first passenger ship in the world equipped with a rotor sail for the utilisation of wind power. Developed by the Finnish company Norsepower Oy Ltd, the Rotor Sail Solution will cut fuel consumption and reduce emissions by up to 900 tonnes annually.

Viking Line will operate the Viking Grace on windassisted voyages between Turku (Finland) and Stockholm (Sweden) from April 12th 2018.

Graphene Ultracapacitors Deliver 34% Fuel Savings in One of the Largest Container Terminals in the Baltic Sea

Skeleton Technologies, the European leader in the production of ultracapacitors, and Transiidikeskus, one of the leading container terminals in the Baltic Region with an annual capacity of 600 000 TEU, unveil a Rubber Tyre Gantry (RTG) crane equipped with a graphene ultracapacitors powered kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) reducing the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 34%.

The Muuga Crane KERS solution in Estonia recuperates energy while the crane is lowering the cargo and re-uses the same energy for lifting.
