Triumph Receiving Government Support To Co-Develop Electric Motorbikes

Triumph Motorcycles is known to www.wheelsmotorcycles.co.uk and other dealerships in the UK, and the government has decided to choose the manufacturer to lead the country’s effort into breaking into the electric motorcycle market. The manufacturer will be working with industry experts, and academics, with backing from the Innovate UK government department to undertake a two-year project.

The project was dubbed “Project Triumph TE-1”, which Triumph Motorcycles will be undertaking with several partners. The involved entities listed down the specifics of their contributions:

  • Triumph Motorcycles, as the name of the project implies, will be leading, providing the chassis design, as well as engineering and manufacturing expertise, on top of developing the necessary safety systems, and defining the specifications of the electric drivetrain.
  • Williams Advanced Engineering will handle the design and integration of a lightweight battery, using their test and development facilities.
  • Integral Powertrain Ltd.’s e-Drive Division will handle the development of the high power density motor, and silicon carbide inverters to be used in the motor, as well as integrating both components into a single motor housing.
  • WMG at the University of Warwick will lend their expertise in electrification, as well as commercial knowledge; driving R&D, as well as creating models and simulations for future market needs.
  • Innovate UK is the government agency that supports and promotes science and technology programmes that could help grow the UK economy, and will support the organisations involved with the programme and provide them funds via the BEIS modern funding strategy aimed at creating a market-leading UK electric vehicle.

The project will be compartmentalized into four main phases, with one of the key goals being improved systems integration. By having respective experts handle the development of the components, then optimizing them into combine units, the project hopes to develop and create electric motorcycle systems that sport reduced mass, complexity and package requirements.

Professor of Advanced Propulsion Systems, David Greenwood, WMG, University of Warwick, says that everyone, www.wheelsmotorcycles.co.uk included, know that electric motorcycles will be important to transportation in the future; delivering reduced road congestion and cutting down on emissions and making parking much easier. WMG, he adds, has the expertise and experience in handling electrification for road, rail, sea and air transportation, which they’ll happily bring to the motorcycle sector.

Tourist Arrivals Increase in Second-Tier Provinces Of Thailand

Tourism remains to be one of the major revenue generating industry of Thailand. No wonder why many entrepreneurs are focusing on Thailand company formation as this is the best time to enter the market. In fact, even the second-tier provinces of the kingdom have experienced a spike in tourist arrivals. This came after the campaign the government has been doing to promote its provinces as tourist destinations aside from its capital Bangkok.

According to the executive of an inter-provincial bus company, the number of tourists has increased by over 10 per cent.

The bus company is none other than Nakhonchai Tour Co. where Kruawan Wonogrukmit takes on the role of a CEO. The company’s headquarter is located in Nakhon Ratchasima. They lauded the program organized by the government when it comes to promoting the tourism of the provinces all over Thailand which are considered to be second-tier. The aim is to promote the local economies and to aid in the income distribution of these provinces.

She further explained that the campaign resulted to an increase of 10 per cent for Thai travellers most especially in provinces located in the northeastern region including Nakhon Phanom, Roi Et, Sakhon Nakhon, Mukdahan and Kalasin.

Ms. Kruawan also said that they are positive that foreign travellers will continue to increase for second-tier provinces particularly travellers from China. They are already preparing for the rebound of these foreign tourists due to the efforts place by the government into luring them back into the country.

One of the measures taken by the government is to wave the fees usually collected for the visa-on-arrival. This is effective to 21 different countries starting November of last year. The waiver has since ended on the last day of April this year.

On her part, Ms. Kruawan revealed that an estimated 4.1 million tourists have boarded their inter-provincial buses for the previous year alone. The number is 2 per cent higher than in 2017.

With the continued tourism boom, Thailand company formation is also an attractive prospect for investors who are dreaming to cash in to the success of the government.

Housing Sector Pressuring Aussie Government For A VISA Programmer For Foreign Tradies

The Aussie housing sector is looking to boost affordability, to that end, they need tradies to handle housing construction and plumbing services in Newcastle and across the country. In order to meet that demand, they’re turning to foreign tradies, and are pressuring the federal government to create a new VISA to that end.

With the Australian Federal Election set for May 18, the multi-trillion housing sector is putting pressure on political parties so that they’ll develop a new kind of VISA in order to fight back a shortfall in tradies for the residential sector.

According to the Housing Industry Association’s Managing Director Graham Wolfe, the recent proposals for changes to the ‘457’ skilled working VISA won’t deal with the underlying issue regarding the shortage of skilled tradies needed for the construction of new houses and apartments in the AU.

Two years ago, former MP Malcolm Turnbull announced that he would abolish the 457 temporary skilled work VISA, which has since been unavailable for new applications.

The Labor party supported a crackdown on work visas, with Bill Shorten saying that about four of five of temporary skilled worker VISAs are granted in fields that aren’t actually suffering from a shortage of skilled workers in Australia, like plumbing services in Newcastle, and that needs to change.

Mr. Wolfe countered these claims, saying that the focus of any reforms should be on creating new VISAs for skilled workers that won’t be bound to any employers, able to act as independent trade contractors. He warns that the housing industry is more vulnerable when it comes to skill shortages than other sectors thanks to its ageing labour force, the nature of the work, as well as the constant demand for housing.

Wolfe says that the housing industry is key to the well-being of Australian society, noting that the country will need more than 2.3 million new houses by 2030 in order to keep up with the growing demand. On top of that, he reports that 2018 saw $108b worth of residential construction in the country.

He explains that the current VISA models don’t suit the housing industry, which is more reliant on independent contracting, explaining that a well-thought out and well-executed migration policy for the country, alongside a strong programme to ensure the training of future Aussie tradies will do much to ensure that Australia has the homes it needs.
