Tarus 2 × 2 the bike with all-wheel drive

Taurus-2x2-All-Terrain-Motorcycle-model-2-630x420

E ‘was created for the Russian forests, inaccessible areas, insidious, where there are swamps and territories orography impossible: it is called Tarus , is equipped with four-wheel drive 2 × 2 , is very light and very resistant to any terrain. It comes from a small farm not far from Moscow Soviet, given the need for a certain part of the people, he decided to create a motorcycle that went beyond the boundaries far more limited motorcycle … normal.

In a typical situation, this bike is transported disassembled to the place to explore …, all in convenient bags! In a few minutes, there are rumors about four, mounts, inflate low pressure tires (220 mm wide) as you do in the summer with the boat, and off you go. Obstacles? Ford? Go up to 100%? Zero problems, the weight of only 50 kgand traction on both wheels allow any territorial acrobatics.

In practice, to be able to move the two wheels simultaneously, each was mounted on a gear wheel, and both, through chain, are connected to an output pinion from the motor. The chassis is rigid, no suspension . Very simple and effective. Of course the 4-stroke single-cylinder engine, it is useless to talk of torque, power, etc. … although, on closer inspection, it is capable of bringing the Tarus 60 km / h with fuel consumption by the green economy, just 1.2 liters per hour . It also has a 3-speed transmission.

This bike explorer who fears no danger, is available (in Russia) in two variants : the only off-road version and the one homologated for road use with complete electrical system and wheels quad, which reflects a slightly higher weight. E ‘for sale in kit to 35,000 rubles, which can be quantified in approximately 730 Euro . And the bike can also float …!

Wave Energy Plants in Brazil – First Generation of Ocean Wave Energy

Brazil’s electricity regulator announced the first generation of ocean wave energy in Brazil from a prototype unit installed at the port of Pecem in San Goncalo do Amarante, Ceara State.

Agencia Nacional de Energia Eletrica (ANEEL) said July 12 that the 50-kW unit generated power for 10 minutes on June 24, providing sufficient electricity to power lights and air conditioning of the test center. Trials are to continue in order to generate power for a longer period.

The research project, for deployment of an onshore wave converter prototype off northeastern Brazil, is to last 36 months with a budget of 14.4 million reais (US$7.1 million).

The sponsoring company for the project, Tractebel Energia S.A., is working with the University of Rio de Janeiro’s foundation for project coordination, research, and technical studies, Fundacao Coordenacao de Projetos, Pesquisas e Estudos Tecnologicos.

The prototype is two modules consisting of a float, arm, and pump that are fixed to a breakwater and linked to a turbine-generator and hyperbaric chamber. ANEEL said its advantages include ease of production and easy coupling to a desalination system to produce potable water.

ANEEL said the Brazilian coast presents good conditions for energy production due to its proximity to high density coastal populations. It is estimated wave energy on Brazil coasts has the potential to produce 87 gigawatts.

The University of Rio de Janeiro also studied a pilot tidal power plant at Bacanga Dam in Sao Luis in northern Brazil that would install an intake system and turbine-generators to harness tidal flows between the ocean and Bacanga Reservoir. (HRW December 2007)
