Without question, the restoration of law and order had to be the first priority, but the country won’t avoid the ‘road to ruin’ on display in this image without a well-supported strategy for reigniting growth and ensuring that the economic benefits are more evenly shared. 511 287 POWERING UP https://www.engineeringnews.co.za/article/powering-up-2021-07-16 Creamer Media Reporter Photo of the Week Fri, 16 Jul 2021 00:00:00 +0200 588686 1626164083 1626386400 99999999999 Creamer Media Reporter 0 0 https://cisp.cachefly.net/assets/articles/images/resized/0000950198_resized_durbanbloomber20211022.jpg POWERING UP: The eThekwini Municipality, in KwaZulu-Natal, is readying itself for the procurement of 400 MW of electricity, primarily in the form of renewable energy. Various other cities, including Cape Town and Johannesburg, are also planning to contract with independent power producers now that the electricity regulations have been amended to allow municipalities “in good financial standing” to develop or procure their own power generation projects.

The European Climate Law foresees a 55% reduction in net greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, compared with 1990 levels, and zero net emissions by 2050. A legislative package to be unveiled in June will reinforce carbon pricing mechanisms, foster energy savings, increase the production of renewable energy, boost sustainable transport and curb imports of products that drive deforestation.

The deal added to the 31-million single-shot doses from Johnson & Johnson, whose vaccine was officially registered for use in the country on April 1. The country has also been allocated 12-million shots under the World Health Organization's Covax scheme and is likely to get doses for 10-million people from the African Union's acquisition initiative. Reuters reports that, after the Pfizer deal, government has enough doses to vaccinate roughly 41-million people out of its total population of 60-million.

After a long campaign, derailed in the latter stages by a President Donald Trump-administration veto, the 66-year-old Nigerian was confirmed in February.

As part of the investment, Ford will build a chassis line at the Tshwane Automotive Special Economic Zone (TASEZ), the development of which is pictured here. TASEZ is located adjacent to Ford’s Silverton assembly plant and is being punted as Africa’s first ‘automotive city’. Besides Ford, Nissan and BMW also assemble vehicles in Tshwane. 511 287 DOSE OF REALITY https://www.engineeringnews.co.za/article/dose-of-reality-2021-02-05 Creamer Media Reporter Photo of the Week Fri, 05 Feb 2021 00:00:00 +0200 574889 1612246883 1612476000 99999999999 Creamer Media Reporter 0 0 https://cisp.cachefly.net/assets/articles/images/resized/0000921185_resized_0000920047vaccinebloomberg01201022.jpg 511 287 LOOMING LARGE https://www.engineeringnews.co.za/article/looming-large-2021-01-29 Creamer Media Reporter Photo of the Week Fri, 29 Jan 2021 00:00:00 +0200 574255 1611650713 1611871200 99999999999 Creamer Media Reporter 0 0 https://cisp.cachefly.net/assets/articles/images/resized/0000919962_resized_powerlinesinformalsettleentbloomberg1022.jpg LOOMING LARGE: State-owned power utility Eskom has been warning for several months that the risk of load-shedding will loom as large as these power lines do over this Cape Town informal settlement. In its official planning, Eskom indicates that electricity shortages are possible during most weeks until April, after which the prognosis is expected to improve. The utility has also indicated previously that the risk of power cuts will be “significantly reduced, but not eliminated” only by September in line with progress being made under its so-called reliability maintenance programme.

Many vaccination deployments have fallen short of initial expectations and have been accompanied by an element of resistance. Nevertheless, the overall mood has been celebratory, given the importance of the vaccine in ending what has been, and still is, an economically and psychologically devastating pandemic. One bakery in Dortmund, Germany, marked the development by baking cakes in the shape of syringes.

It led to millions of premature deaths which devastated families. The associated lockdowns, while necessary in many instances, caused untold misery, from the loss of livelihoods to loneliness and a rise in poverty and hunger. Frontline health workers, such as the one pictured, were pushed to their physical and psychological limits. As 2021 begins, however, there is cause for optimism. The vaccine is being deployed and economies are starting to recover. As with previous pandemics, humanity has again shown resilience, resourcefulness and innovation. We are down, but not out!

A Bloomberg report stated that, at one point, more than 21 bulk carriers were anchored off the Port of Jingtang, unable to offload their Australian coal cargo. Fifteen of the ships had been waiting since June, threatening a humanitarian crisis. During the trade stand-off China has blacklisted various Australian commodities and foodstuffs from coal to lobster. 511 287 TRAVEL DISRUPTED https://www.engineeringnews.co.za/article/travel-disrupted-2020-11-20 Creamer Media Reporter Photo of the Week Fri, 20 Nov 2020 00:00:00 +0200 569611 1605598903 1605823200 99999999999 Creamer Media Reporter 0 0 https://cisp.cachefly.net/assets/articles/images/resized/0000910484_resized_0000909124travelbloomberg1021102.jpg 511 287 NOT LOOTERS https://www.engineeringnews.co.za/article/not-looters-2020-11-13 Creamer Media Reporter Photo of the Week Fri, 13 Nov 2020 00:00:00 +0200 568947 1604994227 1605218400 99999999999 Creamer Media Reporter 0 0 https://cisp.cachefly.net/assets/articles/images/resized/0000908993_resized_0000907552malegapurumakgoba3eskom1020donna1022.jpg 511 287 FLYING HIGH https://www.engineeringnews.co.za/article/flying-high-2020-11-06 Creamer Media Reporter Photo of the Week Fri, 06 Nov 2020 00:00:00 +0200 568403 1604391376 1604613600 99999999999 Creamer Media Reporter 0 0 https://cisp.cachefly.net/assets/articles/images/resized/0000907593_resized_0000906391lewishamiltonreuters10201022.jpg 511 287 STRUGGLE CONTINUES https://www.engineeringnews.co.za/article/struggle-continues-2020-10-30 Creamer Media Reporter Photo of the Week Fri, 30 Oct 2020 00:00:00 +0200 567775 1603783548 1604008800 99999999999 Creamer Media Reporter 0 0 https://cisp.cachefly.net/assets/articles/images/resized/0000906258_resized_0000905074covidicureuters10201022.jpg 511 287 SUSTAINED PRESSURE https://www.engineeringnews.co.za/article/sustained-pressure-2020-10-23 Creamer Media Reporter Photo of the Week Fri, 23 Oct 2020 00:00:00 +0200 567161 1603179106 1603404000 99999999999 Creamer Media Reporter 0 0 https://cisp.cachefly.net/assets/articles/images/resized/0000904847_resized_0000903714manufacturingnampakbloomberg1022.jpg 511 287 WRECKED https://www.engineeringnews.co.za/article/wrecked-2020-10-16 Creamer Media Reporter Photo of the Week Fri, 16 Oct 2020 00:00:00 +0200 566529 1602573090 1602799200 99999999999 Creamer Media Reporter 0 0 https://cisp.cachefly.net/assets/articles/images/resized/0000903464_resized_0000902412decommissionedcruiseshipsreuters10201022.jpg WRECKED: A drone image shows decommissioned cruise ships being dismantled at Aliaga ship-breaking yard in the Aegean port city of Izmir, in western Turkey, earlier this month.
