Terramac recently held a successful exhibit at the record-breaking 2015 International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE) in Louisville, KY. The event took place September 29th – October 1st at the Kentucky Exposition Center and set a new record of over 18,000 registered attendees and 950 exhibitors.
Terramac invited its dealers to Louisville prior to ICUEE for an Inaugural Dealer Meeting. The meeting was a perfect transition to kick off the company’s ICUEE 2015 exhibition with a press event, unveiling Terramac’s largest and most powerful crawler carrier yet, the RT14. The dealers were able to interact with the media and share firsthand stories about their satisfaction with Terramac’s units.
Kenworth has announced three new options for its vocational lineup of trucks. Allison’s 4700 RDS 7-speed automatic transmission – with optional second “deep reverse” – can be ordered on Kenworth’s T880, T800, W900, and C500. The transmission is part of the Allison rugged duty series.
“It’s a great choice for our customers operating mixers, dumps, cranes, and heavy-haulers, where the application calls for an increase in overall transmission ratios,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director. “In the construction world, trucks often need better speed control for job-site maneuverability in steep and often tricky terrain. That’s the beauty of the Allison 4700 RDS, as it offers a lower reverse ratio, and a lower first gear ratio for maneuverability. The new Allison transmission also features no-power interrupts, which gives full power shifts and allows full use of the engine’s horsepower.”
Now available with optional digital meter for more precise control when presetting of monitoring welding amperage, the stick- and TIG-capable CST 280 Series from Miller Electric Mfg. Co. is ideal for welding pipe and plate in power plant construction, petrochemical construction, maintenance and repair and shipbuilding applications.

Data recently released by the United States EPA indicate that state regulations are working to decrease methane emissions from oil and gas production, but federal taxpayers will continue to lose out until the Bureau of Land Management reforms the way royalties are collected on natural gas that is wasted through venting and flaring.
A Western Values Project report shows that taxpayers could lose out on close to $800 million in royalties to the federal treasury if leaders in Washington don’t take action.
With a free-air delivery of 185 cfm and rated operating pressure of 100 psi, the utility mount P185 portable air compressor from Doosan Portable Power offers the power to meet a variety of applications, including powering handheld air tools, sandblasting, cable laying, pipeline testing and paint striping. The above deck portability provides towing capacity for larger machinery.
The utility mount P185 compressor has been designed with the operator in mind by offering easy access to all major service points, leaving more time for the job at hand and less time spent on maintenance. The model is equipped with full-sized, locking end doors that make for faster inspections of fluid levels and filters, plus quick access to the battery and the spin-on oil separator for the easiest maintenance in the industry.
Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management and automation, has announced the new BLISS (baseline integrated SCADA system) solution. BLISS combines Schneider Electric’s Enterprise OASyS SCADA — and its advanced application with IT infrastructure — with compute and networking provided by Cisco to deliver a IoT-enabled holistic pipeline management platform for new pipelines or upgrades to systems. A key aim is to provide operators with real-time visibility into the structural integrity of the pipeline to enable maintenance to be planned or immediate repairs to be effected.
While a top SCADA solution is a critical piece of pipeline management and control, operators also must have significant IT infrastructure to run on, including significant server operation, networking and IT security. Developing this infrastructure can be costly and time intensive, possibly requiring several partners even before beginning the process of integrating SCADA software to run the pipeline.
Doosan Portable Power has expanded its line of portable light towers with the introduction of two small-body model light towers – the LSV6 and LSV8.
The LSV6 and LSV8 include many of the same premium features and reliable performance as the midsize light tower, but with a compact design and vertical mast that allow for greater maneuverability, ease of transport and a low operating cost.
