Good design not only introduces visually pleasing aesthetics but improves functionality and user experience. Great design, however, fully transforms routines and lifestyles.

When it came to its latest washer dryers, Hitachi drew upon the Japanese design ethos of subtraction to reveal a new laundry companion – the Hitachi Linear Smart Washer Dryer BD-D120XGV.

“An important feature of Hitachi’s design is simplicity; we seek to keep unnecessary elements to a minimum,” said Mr Atsushi Ishibashi, who designed the BD-D120XGV with Mr Masato Ninomiya. “When I looked at photos of washing machines, I felt that they didn’t match the interior decor. That discovery was the start of our design project.”

The final product is an elegant, minimalistic-looking showstopper that blends artfully with contemporary furnishings. A glass touch panel makes operation a breeze while a discreet interior light and a wide door opening facilitate your laundry activities.

Sleek looks aside, the two designers had to incorporate new technologies into the machine as well, such as Hitachi’s Wind Iron technology. “Putting that into a small body involved a lot of technical difficulty, but the result was spectacular,” shared Mr Ishibashi.

Thanks to Wind Iron technology, a powerful jet fan with high air flow speeds of up to 270km per hour efficiently spreads clothes against the large drum to ease out wrinkles. This means you get dry, wrinkle-free clothes that you can wear straight from the appliance. The technology has the most pronounced effect on smaller loads of 1kg to 3kg, and even makes towels fluffier as they dry, says Hitachi.

Killexams : Hitachi Vantara to focus on data intelligence offerings to grow in Indian market

Hitachi Vantara, an US-headquartered data storage and management company, is moving towards providing intelligent data management offerings from just data storage solutions in India as the adoption for the same sees an uptick. To better serve the market, it intends to expand its operations in India.

The move comes as the company has seen that the fundamental challenge faced by customers in Indian market has been to make sense of what data has to be stored as the data volume is exponentially growing as it is being generated by various sources, such as at point of sale in a retail environment, through IoT devices, smartphones and more. In order to discover a useful and affordable approach to store the data, Hitachi Vantara believes that it is important to consider data intelligence along with data storage.

Radhika Krishnan, Chief Product Officer, Hitachi Vantara, said,“We are moving the notion of delivering intelligent data management and being able to deliver the highest levels of data quality, as in most environments, data tends to be duplicate, irrelevant, dirty, or dark where when one doesn’t even know that data exists. Hence, much of our roadmap is leaning into data intelligence versus just purely data storage.”

This is where Hitachi Vantara believes to offer a differentiated offering to the marketplace and a lot of customers in India are definitely picking up on the key value propositions is definitely resonating with them, she added. 

Expansion in India 

As the company finds some of the most skilled talent in cutting edge technology in India, it plans to expand its workforce and hire employees for its broader functions of product management, product marketing, and market sensing functions. 

“We don’t just see India as a development center, we see it as a strategic center of competency for us. We are not only hiring engineers, we’re actually hiring other functions. As we co locate all the functions, we will be able to start driving our entire products out of our India offices in order to cater to the India market better,” Krishnan said. 

One third of Hitachi Vantara’s global workforce is based in India. It intends to increase the workforce to make up half of its overall number over the next three to five years.

“We are very excited about the market opportunity that the Indian customers present and the market seems to be prudent to use the offering in order to transform businesses. We are fully committed to bringing the best products to the market while being co located in the Indian offices,” Krishnan said.

Killexams : World first as entire city’s transport network is digitally connected with Hitachi’s new Smart Mobility suite
  • New mobile app allows passengers access to every mode of public transport in a city “hands-free”, using Bluetooth sensors to connect buses, trains and even funiculars. The 360Pass app gives users the ability to hire e-vehicles, pay for parking and identify e-mopeds.
  • The cheapest possible fare automatically calculated at the end of each day based on the passenger’s real usage – and without needing to purchase a ticket.
  • For transport authorities, the new suite of smart mobility software empowers operators with a “digital twin” of the entire transportation network, giving real-time visibility of passenger & multi-modal transport flows around any city.
  • Launching today, Hitachi’s Lumada Intelligent Mobility Management suite, includes powerful tech for passengers and transport operators alike – connecting smart ticketing, traffic flow management and e-charging through a common analytics platform.
  • Solution could help cities such as New York or Washington drive up public transport, cut C02 emissions and slash congestion hours for drivers (currently 102 and 44 hours respectively1).

WASHINGTON, July 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In a move that is set to trigger a revolution in how people around the world will travel in towns and cities, Hitachi Rail has digitally connected public and private hire transport across an entire city. The milestone has been achieved using technology from Hitachi’s new smart mobility suite called Lumada Intelligent Mobility Management, launched today.

The technology can be used in towns and cities across the world. In the launch programme – in Genoa, Italy – Hitachi has connected 663 buses, 2500 bus stops, the metro line used by 15 million p.a., two funiculars, one historic hillside railway, 10 public lifts and two suburban bus routes that span 50km. Users also have the power – via the touch of a button on their mobile phones – to hire an electric car, pay for parking or find an e-moped.

Power to the passenger

As part of the world-first trial, Hitachi’s 360Pass smart ticketing app has eradicated the need to purchase a traditional paper ticket ever again; or to ‘touch-in’ or get multiple apps for different transport services.

The 360Pass connects Bluetooth sensors that know when a passenger with the mobile app has boarded, how far they have travelled and when they disembarked. Users can take multi-modal journeys, but the 360Pass system will ensure they only pay the best possible fare at the end of each day.

The 360Pass app offers more personalised information about public transport journeys, including the fastest and most convenient multi-modal route options and real time journey updates.

It also allows passengers to check how busy bus services are through the app, enabling them to choose less crowded services. This feature can help allay the increased anxiety about crowding post-Covid19, which a latest independent study found to be the second biggest determinant passenger satisfaction.2

360Pass is being delivered in partnership with the city’s public transport operator, AMT, and the Municipality of Genoa, using the local brand name GoGoGe. The technology is part of the municipality’s drive to boost the usage of both public and private e-hire services. The innovative project aims to provide more easily identifiable solutions to the ‘last mile’ problem faced by passengers and public transport authorities around the world.

Game-changer for transport authorities and operators

Genoa, home to two-thirds of a million people, faces similar transport challenges to cities around the world – congestion, emissions and delivering quality services. The ambition on behalf of the city’s leadership is to unlock a step change in the use of sustainable mass transport across the metropolitan area.

Technology offers a way to reduce the reliance on private vehicles – helping the municipality to meet its goals for congestion relief and reducing emissions – while optimising costs and the provision of transportation across the region. In cities such as New York, where drivers can spend an average of 102 hours a year in congestion, this could be transformative.

In addition to the 360Pass mobile app for passengers, the Lumada Intelligent Mobility Management suite gives operators the ability to connect, scale and optimise their city’s entire transportation network in real time.

The over 7,000 Bluetooth sensors installed in Genoa allow the creation of a “digital twin” of the region’s transport and passengers’ end-to-end multimodal journeys. This real-time electronic map of how the city is moving is a powerful tool to allow operators to optimise services, timetables and create a system that better accommodates the changing peaks and troughs in passenger demand. It can identify the issues that deter public transport usage, such as congestion, emissions, crowding or gaps in services.

In addition to smart ticketing, the suite can combine solutions to help operators control traffic flow and service patterns in real time, allow operators to react more effectively to disruption or large scale events (concerts or sporting) happening across the city. Further, by join up information about the level of emissions and congestion in different geographical area, it allows operators to make smart decision about where to target electrification of services first and prioritise locations for charging for e-bus and e-car fleets and infrastructure.

Alessandro de Grazia, Group Head of Smart Ticketing, Hitachi Rail, said: “Hitachi’s Lumada Intelligent Mobility Management suite is a world first for smart mobility and can Boost urban transport in cities around the world. For the first time, passengers can plan and access the most convenient multi-modal journey for the cheapest fare, without ever removing their phone from their pockets.

“Today, cities face the challenges of growing public transport use to reduce emissions, cut congestion and boost their recoveries. Our new solutions – proven in Genoa – provide a uniquely powerful platform for operators. Across the US, from Washington to Phoenix, and New York to Austin – we can help operations connect, scale and optimise their entire transportation network through a single platform.”

As a global leader in transport and technology, Hitachi’s vision for smart mobility is to digitise and optimise every part of the journey across different types of public transport. The new suite embodies Hitachi Rail’s holistic vision for smarter mobility, incorporating solutions across three key areas: smart ticketing, mobility management and electrified mobility solutions. While the firm is known for delivering trains and rail infrastructure around the world, including the iconic shinkansen bullet trains, the digitisation of transport systems is an important and growing area of focus.

Marco Beltrami, President, AMT [Genoa’s public transport operator] said: “GoGoGe, the name we chose in Genoa for Hitachi’s 360Pass app, offers a unique travel experience to our customers with the game-changing hands-free technology. We can follow our customers throughout their journey, across all transport systems, getting a clear picture of their end-to-end journey.

“Deploying Hitachi’s technology is a great opportunity for both AMT and the city of Genoa to be a leader in smart mobility and test innovative technologies that will make a big difference to travel in cities around the world.”

About 360Pass: “hands-free” Smart Ticketing technology

Part of Lumada Intelligent Mobility Management’s smart ticketing offering, Hitachi Rail is also launching the new 360Pass mobile application for passengers, available on iOS and Android smart phones. The app, launched now available in Genoa, will be rolled out on a city-by-city basis in partnership with local transportation authorities and operators.

The connected Bluetooth sensor are easy to install and powered by batteries that last for around five years. The installation and set-up light infrastructure in Genoa took less than six months to be fully-operationally ready. Having proved successful with city’s complex mix of public transport modes and challenging geography (dense, hilly and built around successive bays and valleys), Hitachi Rail is confident the technology could be applied to any city around the world.

In addition to conventional mobile ticketing capabilities, such as e-ticketing and QR codes, 360Pass is offers innovative hands-free “BeIn BeOut” technology that provides ticketless transportation across multiple modes of transport.

The technology uses a network of sensor nodes, installed at strategic points across a transport network, including on trains, buses, parking lots at stops and stations, which connect with the user’s 360Pass app via Bluetooth.

Once a passenger begins a journey, the app connects with each sensor it passes on the route, recording the full multi-modal journey; for example, different sensors will register a passenger moving between a bus and a metro service. The app then uses the recorded data to calculate the best-priced fare for the passenger at the end of the day, and sends a receipt for the final fare at 3am the next day.

The app also provides more personalised information to the passenger, based on the context of their journey – predicting crowding at future stops, and alerting passengers as they approach their destination.

Aside from providing a seamless experience for the passenger, the technology can deliver significant benefits for operators, including enhanced data on passengers’ full multi-modal journeys, supporting the optimisation of timetables. The technology also has the potential remove large queues and bottlenecks around ticket barriers by using the technology at the entrance to platforms or vehicles.

Hitachi Rail’s new launch programmes, and decades of experience conventional ticketing, are proving the viability of technology that connects multiple modes of transport across an entire city or region.

Killexams : Considering a 'new nuclear generation' | TVA moving forward with plans for smaller nuclear reactors

President Jeff Lyash said small modular reactors could help TVA achieve a long-term goal in being carbon-free by 2050. Still, criticism over past plans remains.

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Nearly four decades after the Tennessee Valley Authority abandoned construction of more than half of the nuclear plants it once planned to build, the federal utility is moving forward again with plans to pursue "the next generation of nuclear power."

The federal utility said last week it has an agreement with a nuclear manufacturer to pursue a small modular reactor design at the Clinch River reactor site near Oak Ridge and will spend the next year preparing a possible construction permit to build a couple of the 300-megawatt reactors.

TVA President Jeff Lyash said smaller nuclear reactors such as the GE-Hitachi BWRX-300 being studied by TVA can be built more cost effectively and offer more flexibility than the previous generation of nuclear plants. Lyash said while TVA is pursuing a range of energy options for its future, he thinks the small modular reactors will be needed to help TVA achieve its long-term goal of being carbon-free by 2050 while still maintaining reliable and relatively low-cost power.

“I am pleased to announce that TVA has taken another step on that road (to building a small modular reactor) and signed a two-party agreement with GE-Hitachi which will support our planning and preliminary licensing for the potential deployment of an SMR (small modular reactor) at the Clinch River site,” Lyash said during an earnings presentation Tuesday. “The agreement will provide additional information to analyze the viability of SMRs in the Valley.”

Still, some environmental groups question TVA’s latest pursuit of more nuclear power. They note that most of the 17 reactors that TVA first proposed to build more than a half century ago were ultimately scrapped due to cost overruns or other problems. 

TVA is the nation’s third largest nuclear power operator, with seven reactors at its Sequoyah, Watts Bar and Browns Ferry nuclear plants. Ten other reactors TVA proposed were never completed even though TVA spent more than $10 billion on the abandoned plants.

"It’s quite frustrating to watch TVA chase after unproven technologies without known costs like SMRs—or still wanting to build more natural gas generation—while they are slow to adopt proven and cost-effective technologies like solar power,” Stephen Smith, executive director for the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, said in a telephone interview Tuesday.

Smith said TVA already gets more than 40% of its power from nuclear units, but the federal utility trails behind most of its neighbors in the share of solar and wind generation used to produce electricity. In the second quarter, 21% of TVA’s power came from natural gas-fired plants, and TVA is proposing to build more gas plants to replace some of the coal-fired generation it is shutting down.

TVA has pledged to shutter the last of the 59 coal units it once operated by 2035 to help reduce its carbon emissions and aid in President Joe Biden’s appeal to decarbonize America’s electricity grid.

Lyash said TVA is pursuing a new and diverse generation portfolio to ensure a reliable and resilient power system, and he is eager to explore and expand solar generation, battery storage, pumped hydro generation, advanced hydrogen technologies and other carbon-free power production.

Last month, TVA announced it is seeking proposals for up to 5,000 megawatts of carbon-free power in one of the biggest such requests for carbon-free generation anywhere in the country.

“But I think to meet the increased demand we expect in electricity, and to do so in a reliable, resilient, cost-effective and clean manner, we need to consider new nuclear generation,” Lyash said.

In the quarterly earnings report, TVA revealed that the board of directors this spring ratified approval of a programmatic approach to explore the GE-Hitachi reactor design “in collaboration with other utilities, government agencies, research institutions and organizations on advanced nuclear technologies.”

TVA and Ontario Power Co., the biggest public utilities in the United States and Canada, have negotiated a bilateral contract with General Electric and Hitachi to develop and build the GE Hitachi BWRX-300. Lyash said TVA is targeting the fourth quarter of 2023 or the first quarter of 2024 to submit an application for a construction permit for the smaller reactor design, which could be built as soon as 2030.

TVA’s latest move is part of a plan adopted by the board in February allocating up to $200 million to explore and develop the GE Hitachi BWRX-300 reactor design. The GE Hitachi model is one of more than two dozen small reactor designs under development.

Lyash said the 300-megawatt size and light-water design of the GE Hitachi plan “fits the scale, load growth and decarbonization plans” that the board outlined when it adopted its power plan in 2021.

“The BWRX-300 is an ideal technology solution for TVA as it looks to small modular reactors as a source of carbon-free generation,” Sean Sextone, the executive vice president of advanced nuclear at GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy, said in a statement Tuesday.

TVA was the first utility to obtain an early site permit to build up to 800 megawatts of nuclear power generation from small modular reactors at its Clinch River site in Oak Ridge. 

By a 3-1 vote, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission voted in 2019 to issue TVA a 20-year site permit for the 935-acre site as an acceptable location for TVA to potentially construct and operate small modular reactors.

TVA is pursuing a two-step licensing process to proceed with a construction permit to build the new units and then later obtain an operating permit to run the reactors.

“We’re developing that construction permit application, which we would make a decision whether to submit that (to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission) in the fourth quarter of 2023 or the first quarter of 2024,” Lyash said.

The commission would have up to two years to review and decide on the construction permit application. Lyash said the Oak Ridge project should serve as a model for other small modular reactors that TVA might also build on former coal power plant sites or the abandoned Bellefonte nuclear plant site in Alabama.

The decision to potentially build any small modular reactor will still require approval by the TVA board and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

In its financial report Tuesday, TVA said it has spent $98 million on work regarding small modular reactors, including work to complete the early site permit application for the Clinch River Nuclear Site. 

The U.S. Department of Energy, which operates the Oak Ridge National Laboratory near the Clinch River site, is partnering in some of the research on the project and has reimbursed TVA $29 million.

“Additional expenditures will be determined based on future project development,” TVA said in its financial filing.

Killexams : Hitachi Rail workers strike over pay and working conditions

British trade union Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) has announced that employees of Hitachi Rail have begun a three-day strike over wages and conditions.

RMT members began the strike on 1 August with the aim of resolving disputes over leave entitlement, shift duration, pay and breaks. 

They are seeking an agreement in line with Hitachi members in Doncaster and Hitachi North Pole maintenance.

Hitachi Rail had provided a pay increase of 7.5% during talks, but decided to withdraw paid meal breaks and reduce the working week elements that had been offered.

RMT stated that the company then ‘reinstated them at an avoidance of dispute meeting, but insisted on a reduction in annual leave, with some members facing the prospect (of) losing over 100 paid hours’.

The union members dismissed the offer, saying it was inferior to agreements reached in Doncaster and North Pole. 

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: “Our members know the value of their work and will not be short-changed by Hitachi Rail. 

“Private rail operators need to stop trying to play workers off against one another.

“I congratulate our members on this strong industrial response and RMT will support further stoppages until they receive a just settlement.”

In a separate development, members of the Associated Society of Locomotive Engineers and Firemen (ASLEF) have called for a one-day strike on 13 August at nine train companies over wages.

ASLEF members held a strike this Saturday at seven companies for the same reason.

ASLEF general secretary Mick Whelan said: “With inflation running at north of 10%, that means those drivers have had a real-terms pay cut over the last three years.

“We want an increase in line with the cost of living – we want to be able to buy, in 2022, what we could buy in 2021.”
