IPS to Supply Control Technology to World's First Hydrogen Power Plant

Invensys Process Systems (IPS), a global technology, software and consulting firm, today announced that it has been selected by Enel to supply control and automation technology for the world's first hydrogen-fuelled power plant, to be constructed in Fusina, near Venice in the Veneto region of Italy.

The new facility, which places Enel and Italy at the forefront of technological innovation for environmentally compatible energy development, is part of the "Environment and Innovation Project," which envisages investments of €7.4 billion by 2012. The €40 million plant will be built next to Enel's existing coal-fired power station in Fusina and is being supported with €4 million from the local Veneto region, which is keen to establish a dedicated "hydrogen district" in the area.

DEWALT, a leading manufacturer of industrial power tools, launches a comprehensive line of work gear for professional contractors, including more than 40 products such as heavy-duty tool belts, kneepads, soft-side tool carriers, tool holders and accessories. DeWALT has entered into a licensing partnership with Custom LeatherCraft (CLC), the leading manufacturer of tool holders, organizers and other work gear accessories, to develop this line of work gear that will be available in January 2009. The new line is built with heavy-duty materials for improved durability on the jobsite and innovative features for increased comfort and convenience.
