Wacker Equipment Travels Long Road

 Large core equipment arrived at the WACKER POLYSILICON site in Charleston, Tenn. this week.  This equipment—used for WACKER’s production process—arrived by barge to a unique location, and then traveled to the company’s construction site by various methods including a self-propelled transportation unit.


“The arrival of this core production piece is an exciting and momentous occasion,” said Dr. Martin Richtberg, vice president of engineering and head of the WACKER POLYSILICON construction project.  “Detailed planning for this arrival began in March this year.  It was necessary to find barge access that could accommodate equipment this size, and to determine the most efficient road transportation route.”


The equipment arrived in Mobile, Ala. earlier this month after crossing the Atlantic Ocean.  Additional preparations were made to ensure the equipment was protected: four large steel stands were custom-built and welded to the barge so that the equipment would travel securely.


After travelling along the Mississippi and Tennessee Rivers, the equipment arrived in Decatur, Tenn.  The location, however, had not previously been used for barge access and advance groundwork was necessary.


Prior to the barge’s arrival, transportation specialists developed a strategy for preparing the area.  New gravel and crane mats were added along the shoreline.  This preparation offered additional protection to the riverbank, and minimized the possibility of damage to the barge.


“Safety and environmental protection are core components of all processes at WACKER,” said Dr. Konrad Bachhuber, vice president and site manager for WACKER POLYSILICON North America.  “We take proactive steps to ensure every activity on our site is accomplished with the highest attention to environmental care and safety, therefore we have ensured the transportation of our equipment would be carried out with this same level of care.”


Two onshore machines gripped the barge on either side and pulled it in, allowing preparations for road transportation of the equipment to begin.


Engineering experts and transportation specialists reviewed the equipment’s route in advance, noting asphalt conditions and critical points such as road corners. 


At no more than two mph, the equipment travelled through Decatur with these experts walking alongside it.  Each expert carried a remote to make adjustments and alter the axles individually, ensuring the weight was evenly distributed and that the equipment would not be twisted.


“Every second someone is checking the machine and making sure the next step is possible,” said Ulrich Dankerl, project manager and lead logistics/engineering for the project.  “This equipment cannot twist even slightly, therefore it is necessary to navigate uneven surfaces by continuously evaluating the height of each wheel.”


Two trailers were used to transport the equipment through Decatur and to the Charleston site.  Both trailers had 13 axles—each connected to the trailer hydraulically—with eight wheels per axle; the weight of the equipment was dispersed over 26 axles and 208 wheels.


“This method of transportation offers less surface impact than a standard transportation trailer because the weight is more evenly distributed,” added Dr. Bachhuber.  “Additionally, these trailers have rotating plates to allow for superior navigation; roads with turns and slopes were manageable.”

Last Update on July 24, 2014 07:36 GMT

WORLD MARKETS

UNDATED (AP) -- Asian shares were subdued today despite an improvement in China's manufacturing as a wait-and-see mood prevailed ahead of earnings reports from some of the region's top companies.

The Nikkei 225, the benchmark for the Tokyo Stock Exchange, erased early gains to slip 0.4 percent to 15,268 in afternoon trading.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng was up 0.5 percent at 24,099.99 while South Korea's Kospi lost 0.1 percent to 2,027.40. Shares were mostly higher in Southeast Asia.

OIL PRICES

UNDATED (AP) -- The price of oil fell today, giving back part of its sizeable jump the day before, despite improvement in Chinese manufacturing.

Benchmark U.S. crude for September delivery was down 16 cents at $102.96 a barrel at 0650 GMT in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

The contract gained delivery gained 73 cents to $103.12 on Wednesday after data released by the Energy Department Wednesday showed a drop in U.S. crude inventories that was more than double what analysts had expected.

CHINA MANUFACTURING

HONG KONG (AP) -- A survey shows China's factory activity rose in July to its highest level in 18 months, a sign that mini-stimulus measures to shore up the world's No. 2 economy have taken hold.

The preliminary HSBC purchasing managers' index rose to 52.0 in July from 50.7 in June.

The index uses a 100-point scale on which numbers below 50 indicate contraction.

The report said overall new orders and new export orders in China's giant manufacturing industry rose faster in July than the month before. China's economic growth edged up to 7.5 percent in the April-June quarter after slowing in the previous period.

HSBC said the impact of finely tuned stimulus measures rolled out by policymakers in recent months is "still filtering through."

ECONOMY-THE DAY AHEAD

WASHINGTON (AP) -- It's a busy day economic data and corporate earnings reports.

The Labor Department leads the data this morning with its weekly jobless claims. A little later, Commerce Department releases its report on new home sales for June, while Freddie Mac provides the latest survey of mortgage rates.

As for corporate earnings, Ford, General Motors, Caterpillar, 3M, American and Southwest Airlines and Union Pacific all report their quarterly financial results before the market opens.

After the market closes, Amazon.com, Visa and Starbucks issue their results.

EARNS-AT&T

Cheaper wireless plans cut into AT&T 2Q profit

NEW YORK (AP) -- AT&T has posted lower net income for the latest quarter due to cheaper cellphone plans it introduced as a response to aggressive pricing from smaller competitor T-Mobile US.

AT&T says it earned $3.55 billion, or 68 cents per share. Excluding some one-time items, AT&T's earnings were 62 cents per share, a penny shy of expectations. Revenue, however, was $32.58 billion, slightly above expectations.

AT&T says half of its wireless subscribers have already moved to "Mobile Share Value" plans, introduced in February. It's also adding subscribers to its Next plans, which carry lower monthly fees because customers pay full price for their phones.

Executives are defending the new Next and Mobile Share Value plans, saying they boosted the number of new customers to the highest level in five years.

AT&T, the second-largest cellphone company, is dueling with No. 4 T-Mobile US, which has shaken up the industry with innovative pricing plans.

EARNS-FACEBOOK

MENLO PARK, Calif. (AP) -- Facebook is on a roll. The world's largest online social network posted sharply higher earnings on Wednesday as revenue from mobile advertising continued to grow, and more people used it, more often.

The company's shares climbed nearly 4 percent in extended trading after the results came out, signaling that they could hit a record high when the stock market opens on Thursday. Investors who bought -- and held on to -- Facebook stock during the company's initial public offering two years ago are now close to doubling their money.

Facebook Inc. (FB) said Wednesday that it earned $788 million, or 30 cents per share, in the April-June period. That's up from $331 million, or 13 cents per share, in the same quarter a year ago.

Adjusted earnings were 42 cents per share, handily beating Wall Street's expectations of 33 cents, according to a poll by Zacks Investment Research.

Facebook's revenue jumped 61 percent to $2.91 billion, also beating expectations.

ARGENTINA-DEBT

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- Argentina's president says her country will not default because it has paid its debts to bondholders.

The government is in negotiations to resolve a dispute with some creditors over $1.5 billion in unpaid debts that could lead to the country's second default in 13 years.

But President Cristina Fernandez said Wednesday that a new term for default will have to be created to refer to "a debtor that paid and someone who blocked it."

She was referring to a U.S. judge's order that Argentina can't pay investors who accepted lower-valued bonds after a 2001 default unless it also pays off bondholders who didn't participate in the bond swap.

Many of the latter are hedge funds that bought Argentine bonds on the cheap following Argentina's record $100 billion default in 2001.

S&P-MORTGAGE RATINGS

SEC considering action against S&P over ratings

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Standard & Poor's says regulators have told the rating agency they are considering taking civil enforcement action against it over ratings it gave to six deals in 2011 involving securities tied to commercial mortgages.

S&P's parent McGraw Hill Financial Inc. disclosed Wednesday in a regulatory filing that it has received a so-called "Wells Notice" from staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The notice indicates the staff will recommend to the five-member commission that it pursue action against S&P for alleged violations of securities laws.

Under SEC procedure, S&P will be able to make its case to the agency on the issues raised by the notice.

New York-based McGraw Hill says S&P has been cooperating with the SEC in the matter and will continue to do so.

NASA ROCKET

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Federal auditors say NASA doesn't have enough money to start launching its new, $12 billion rocket program by the end of 2017 as planned.

The congressional Government Accountability Office on Wednesday issued a report saying NASA's new Space Launch System is at high risk of missing its planned December 2017 initial test flight. The post-space shuttle program would build the biggest rockets ever to send astronauts to asteroids and Mars.

The report said NASA's own officials told the GAO that there is a 90 percent chance they can't meet the launch date with current funding.

Report author Cristina Chaplain said it's not that NASA has busted its budget for the program because of technical problems. It's just that NASA didn't get enough money to carry out the massive undertaking.

SOCIAL SECURITY-COMPUTER WOES

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Six years ago the Social Security Administration embarked on an aggressive plan to replace outdated computer systems overwhelmed by a growing flood of disability claims.

Nearly $300 million later, an internal report says the new system is nowhere near ready and agency officials are struggling to salvage a project racked by delays and mismanagement.

The project is still in the testing phase, and the agency can't say when it will be completed or how much it will cost.

In the meantime, people filing for disability claims face long delays at nearly every step of the process -- delays that were supposed to be reduced by the new processing system.

The report was commissioned by Social Security to save the project. It was done by consulting firm McKinsey & Co.
