Électrification des camions lourds: Effenco débarque à Paris pour conquérir l’Europe

MONTRÉAL | L'entreprise montréalaise Effenco, qui se spécialise dans l'électrification des camions lourds, s'installe en France afin de partir à la conquête du marché européen.

C'est un contrat de 3 millions $ signé au début de 2019 avec Derichebourg Environnement qui a fait croître la demande pour les solutions d'Effenco sur le vieux continent. Cette entreprise internationale a décidé d'opter pour la technologie hybride électrique Active Stop-Start d'Effenco afin d'équiper ses camions à benne affectés à de nouveaux contrats de collecte dans la Ville Lumière.

«À la suite de l'entente avec Derichebourg, nous avons reçu de nombreuses expressions d'intérêt et conclu des ententes additionnelles avec des flottes et manufacturiers de camions en Norvège, en Italie, en Suisse ainsi qu'en Espagne», a indiqué David Arsenault, président et cofondateur d'Effenco, par communiqué.

«Plusieurs centaines d'unités seront ainsi progressivement déployées dans différentes villes européennes au cours des deux prochaines années, a ajouté l'homme d'affaires. Nous sommes confiants que nos ventes à l'exportation atteindront d'ici trois ans quelque 100 millions $.»

La technologie hybride électrique d'Effenco permet de réduire de 30 % les émissions de gaz à effet de serre des camions, qui sont également plus silencieux, un avantage en milieu densément peuplé.

    Work on HMCS Corner Brook could stretch out to 2021, DND confirms

    DAVID PUGLIESE, OTTAWA CITIZEN HMCS Corner Brook's Extended Docking Work Period, or EDWP, is presently underway in Esquimalt, BC and was scheduled to be completed in 2020. But an assessment conducted by the contractor, Babcock Canada Inc., indicates that the work could take longer than expected, the Department of National Defence confirmed to Postmedia. DND spokeswoman Ashley Lemire said given the complex and lengthy nature of submarine EDWPs, periodic assessments are routinely undertaken by Babcock Canada to ensure that the schedule remains achievable. “The most recent schedule assessment took into account the remaining work, and an updated assessment of the potential risk factors, to produce a probabilistic assessment of the completion date that showed that the EDWP could continue into 2021 if a number of the risks materialized,” Lemire noted in an email. The Canadian government and Babcock will now undertake a review of all risks to determine how those can be avoided and or mitigated, she added. They will also review the remaining items still to be done to ensure that only essential work has been scheduled. “This necessary process generally results in the schedule coming back towards the baseline and the process must be left to unfold to determine if a full return to baseline can be achieved,” Lemire added. If the work on Corner Brook slips into 2021, it could have an impact on the work periods for other submarines to follow. https://ottawacitizen.com/news/national/defence-watch/work-on-hmcs-corner-brook-could-stretch-out-to-2021-dnd-confirms

    Analysis: Canada pressured by allies to up military spending

    Canada is expected to boost military spending after a government review next month, but the increase is unlikely to comfort allies facing new threats and it could further undermine the country's international military credibility, policy analysts said.
