  • This advantage is accentuated by focusing on more inland and western Chinese markets due to the journey time to port, congestion on eastern Chinese rail networks and closer proximity to Europe.
  • Investment in the rail infrastructure of Kazakhstan including the development of transhipment ports at Dostyk and Khorgos enables smooth passage and increased capacity in and out of China.
  • Muuga is the closest seaport by distance from Kazakhstan.
  • Tallinn is the closest EU capital city to China
  • Nordshore presents opportunity to locate integrated logistics and manufacturing facilities on a key strategic intermodal hub.
  • Proposal, Nordshore
  • Full management team at the ready for Business Development, Logistics/rail terminal operations. Development Management. Government/International relations, Finance, Administration.

    Proposed development at Kottafaru Island, Raa Atoll

    This proposal is made for raising the necessary finance for developing a resort in Kottafaru Island in Maldives. Kottafaru is located in Raa Atoll (North Maalhosmadulu), about 162 Kilometers from the capital Male’. Nearest domestic airport is located in B. Dharavandhoo which is located about 45 Kilometers away. The island can also be accessed by seaplane in 35 minutes from the international air port. At present another domestic air port is under development in Raa Atoll itself.

    Raa Atoll is a fast developing tourism zone where new resorts are underway. The atoll is near to one of the best dive spots in the country. The Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve, a protected marine area which boasts of vast marine life including manta rays and whale sharks is in the neighboring atoll.

    Kandy 10MW Residual Derived Fuel Thermal Gasification and Landfill Bioreactor Integration Project

    The management of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is a financial, as well as a social burden to almost all local authorities in Sri Lanka and similar agencies elsewhere in the world. Most developed countries operate disposal facilities at very low efficiencies due to high incentives given as disposal/tipping fees. This has led to the operation of separate systems of landfills and incinerators that do not make long term sense. In this project, a combined system has been proposed by Ecotech Lanka, which has origins at the University of Peradeniya that uses the total energy content of Kandy City waste. A breakthrough technology developed at the university (SL Patent 15679) for Ecotech Lanka, resulting in the development of an innovative biofilter liner and cover system in landfill bioreactors - to provide an enhanced & rapid methanification process - is the key to this project’s takeoff.  

    The Kandy Municipal Council (KMC) recognising the value of the overall technological approach of Ecotech Lanka, has entered into a 30 years lease agreement to implement the proposed Integrated Solid Waste Management (ISWM) system. The flow chart of the main activities of project is given in the Figure 1.
