High-build, fast-drying, flexible system offers quick installation, easy maintenance


PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PPG (NYSE: PPG) today announced the launch of PPG SANISHIELD™ 3000/5000 two-part polyurea coating system for walls and ceilings in industrial environments where quick installation and easy maintenance are critical, such as food and beverage facilities.

An alternative to fiberglass and stainless-steel wall and ceiling systems, PPG SaniShield coating system fills minor cracks in the substrate material to enhance surface integrity and durability. It offers excellent gloss retention for a bright white surface.

PPG SaniShield 3000/5000 coating system is an important extension of our polyurea-based coating line,” said Scott Doering, PPG director of sales, protective and marine coatings, U.S. “We developed the system to address market demand for a flexible, easy-to-maintain wall and ceiling coatings system with low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) for food and beverage manufacturing facilities. It is especially good for tough-to-coat places like transition zones. As a complete basecoat and topcoat system, it offers contractors and end users the confidence that comes with PPG’s leading formulation expertise.”

Combining an aromatic polyurea high-build basecoat with an aliphatic polyurea topcoat, PPG SaniShield 3000/5000 system goes on thickly and cures quickly. It provides an ultraviolet-stable, easy-to-clean surface that has been tested to withstand the harsh chemicals found in common sanitizers and disinfectants. The coating is suitable for U.S. Department of Agriculture incidental food contact applications and flame resistant pursuant to the ASTM E-84 flame spread test, making it a Class A coating.

Other key features of PPG SaniShield 3000/5000 coating system include:

  • Fast cure for return-to-service in 18 hours after coating;
  • A smooth, high-gloss and bright finish;
  • High elongation to cover imperfections and limit caulking; and
  • A high-solids and ultra-low-VOC (less than 17 grams per liter) formulation.

PPG SaniShield 3000/5000 coating system is available in Canada, Mexico and the U.S. For more information, visit ppgpmc.com/sanishield.

Nayo Tropical Technology Ltd. to receive zinc battery systems at four sites

EDISON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eos Energy Storage LLC (“Eos”), a leading manufacturer of safe, low-cost and long-duration zinc battery storage systems, today announced an expansion of its partnership with Nayo Tropical Technology Ltd. (“Nayo”), a leading West African mini-grid engineering, procurement, and construction (“EPC”) company. Eos will deploy additional units of its signature Aurora EnergyBlock™ systems, rated at 125kW/500kWh, to four rural microgrid projects in Nigeria in the first quarter of 2021.


In July, Eos announced it had entered into an agreement with Nayo to bring safe, environmentally friendly, low-maintenance, easy-to-deploy energy storage to the African market for the use of residents and local businesses in rural locations. This new contract expands on the success of that program by combining solar photovoltaic generation and energy storage to provide reliable electricity to homes and businesses in remote Nigerian communities, in addition to reducing dependence on diesel generators.

A notable benefit of Eos’ microgrid battery energy storage system is that it can store renewable energy that can be released at a later time and under severe weather conditions, giving rural locations and remote environments a reliable solution for energy storage and generation. High temperatures can be a challenge for other battery technologies, as they require heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (“HVAC”) systems, which get overworked and fail frequently in hot climates. Eos’ batteries do not require HVAC and can operate reliably in hot places without it.

“Eos was quick to prove that its positively ingenious energy storage solutions are uniquely suited to harsh environments and rural deployments with our last deployment,” said Dr. Balki G. Iyer, Chief Commercial Officer of Eos. “We are proud to expand our partnership with Nayo with a follow up in the first quarter, and we look forward to serving the energy needs of additional communities in the future with Nayo as our partner.”

Eos’ clients, including utilities, EPC companies and storage integrators, benefit from additional features including simple installation, minimal auxiliary power requirements to run the system, the ability to power through grid outages, simple maintenance and long-term product life. Remote project sites can often be a challenge, as they can be far from a supply chain and labor pool, but the low maintenance requirements of the Eos battery make it a fitting solution despite these limitations.

“Eos’ technology fit our exact needs for energy storage,” said Okenwa Anayo Nas, Chief Executive Officer of Nayo. “As a follow up to the first storage project, we were quick to move forward with additional installations. With Eos batteries, our projects are delivering on their promise to bring energy to remote villages across Africa. We appreciate the low cost-per-kilowatt-hour and flexibility of Eos’ solution.”

Nayo has more than 25 new mini grids in its pipeline to deploy across West Africa, which Eos plans to support as the industry grows over the next two years.

About Nayo Tropical Technology Ltd.
Nayo Tropical Technology Ltd. (“Nayo”) is a leading West African mini-grid engineering, procurement, and construction company with a 20+ year project track record. Nayo specializes in R&D, manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of power system products and solutions.

-- EGI’s Fourth Recent Investment in Transportation & Logistics --

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Equity Group Investments (EGI), Sam Zell’s private investment firm, announced its investment in Able Freight Services (Able), a provider of airfreight forwarding services focused on time-sensitive perishable goods. Able’s CEO Orlando Wong invested alongside EGI in the transaction. EGI’s President Mark Sotir; Managing Directors Evan Harwood and Mike Leahy; and Senior Associate Tyler Goldstein have joined Able’s board of managers, and the company is seeking to add additional board members. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.


This partnership reflects today’s global growth opportunity in cold chain transportation and distribution,” commented Sotir. “Able has built a leading industry platform defined by its powerful global network of strategic partnerships including airlines, associations and more than 75 local service agents. Orlando is a strong steward and we look forward to supporting the company through its next phase of growth.”

Able provides airfreight forwarding services from North America to more than 60 countries on behalf of prominent global brands of growers, shipping and freight forwarding companies, retailers, distributors and government bodies. The company has eight cold-storage locations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Hawaii and Mexico, and long-standing partnerships with leading commercial and cargo airlines. Able was founded in 1992 by Scott Irvin Murray who originally operated the company until he was joined by Orlando Wong in 1994. Mr. Murray sold his majority interest in connection with EGI’s investment.

EGI’s history of growing businesses was highly attractive to us in selecting a partner,” said Wong. “The team provides strong operating expertise and understands the logistics sector. At the same time, they offer a breadth of knowledge across multiple industries for a broader perspective of best practices and insights.”

As a top 10 forwarder of goods to markets outside the United States, Able’s services include transportation of perishable products such as fresh fruits and vegetables, protein, and seafood, as well as the handling of critical pharmaceutical, medical and e-commerce products.

The non-discretionary and time-sensitive nature of perishable goods has proven to be recession-resistant relative to traditional dry freight. We see strong potential for Able to expand its footprint as it pursues growth in different product verticals and geographies,” commented Harwood.

Solar Panels Generate Electricity Savings with Renewable Power



IMPERIAL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ZGlobal Power Engineering and Energy Solutions (ZG) is pleased to announce the completion of the first phase of a solar installation at Imperial Valley Food Bank that will generate 585 kilowatt-hours (KWh) from rooftop photovoltaic panels. Once the second phase of the (200 KWh) project is completed in 2021, the Food Bank will save more than $500,000 in energy costs.

The cost savings come at a critical time for the Food Bank as it is serving more clients than ever before with layoffs and business closures continuing in Imperial Valley due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The rooftop solar plant installed on the Imperial Valley Food Bank’s new building was completed Sept. 1, 2020 and will help address the growing needs of the community. According to the California Employment Development Department, Imperial County’s 26.8% unemployment rate ranks as one of the highest unemployment regions in California, as of July 1, 2020[1].

To help fund the new building, ZG pledged more than $275,000 over a five-year period as part of the Food Bank’s Capital Campaign in addition to installing the rooftop solar project at cost. Additionally, and at cost, ZG is embarking on an innovative “microgrid” project at the facility that will create additional zero-carbon electricity, while allowing the Food Bank to operate off-the-grid during outages.

With an office in the region, ZG has contributed to the local economy for 15 years, providing engineering services to more than 1,250 megawatts of clean energy projects, including 20 megawatt-hours of energy storage as well as key transmission projects to further green the grid and enhance reliability.

“Our commitment to Imperial County speaks for itself,” said ZG President and CEO Ziad Alaywan. “We have established an office in Imperial County, generated jobs by hiring locally, established training and apprenticeship programs, and provided significant scholarships funds in tens of thousands to local students accepted into Stanford, University of California, San Diego and San Diego State University as well as Imperial Valley College and Calexico Schools.”

“ZG was there from day one to jump in and provide the initial financial support and continues to be one of our top three supporters to make the dream of a modern, energy efficient and green building come through,” said Sara Griffen, executive director of the Imperial Valley Food Bank.

ZGlobal Inc. is a power engineering consultancy firm staffed by veterans of the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) and various California utilities. We offer full-service start-to-finish solutions for our clients looking for system planning and expansions to support growing load and for the interconnection of generation resources to design all the way through full operations. We apply our cutting-edge advisory services related to the development of an asset and strategically place our staff of engineers, market analysts, energy schedulers and industry leaders, who are proven strategic advisors.

Imperial Food Bank is an independent, nonprofit charitable corporation, created and operated for and by residents of Imperial Valley with the purpose of feeding those in need living in Imperial County. The Food Bank was established in 1991 and over the years has grown in size, structure, and purpose responding to the increased need for food assistance by Imperial County residents experiencing hunger. Limitations at its aging facility forced the Food Bank to raise funds to build a larger, energy-efficient and food safe storage facility to continue to serve the unique needs of the food insecure in Imperial County.

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--This is to advise you that BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust (NYSE: BPT) announces that the dividend information for the Third Quarter of 2020 is as follows:

Ex-Dividend Date: October 19, 2020
Record Date: October 20, 2020
Payable Date: October 21, 2020

Dividend Rate: $0.0000000 per Unit*

*Actual average daily production for the quarter was 70,714 BBLS.


As provided in the Trust Agreement of the Trust, the quarterly royalty payment by Hilcorp North Slope, LLC (formerly BP Exploration (Alaska) Inc.) to the Trust is the sum of the individual revenues attributed to the Trust as calculated each day during the quarter. The amount of such revenues is obtained by multiplying Royalty Production for each day in the calendar quarter by the Per Barrel Royalty for that day. Pursuant to the Trust Agreement, the Per Barrel Royalty for any day is the WTI Price for the day less the sum of (i) Chargeable Costs multiplied by the Cost Adjustment Factor and (ii) Production Taxes. As discussed in Item 1A “RISK FACTORS”, of the Trust’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, on January 1, 2020, the “break-even” WTI price (the price at which all taxes and prescribed deductions are equal to the WTI price) for the Trust to receive a positive Per Barrel Royalty with respect to a particular day’s production was $54.34. While WTI prices generally remained stable during the third quarter of 2020, moving within a range of approximately $36 to $43 per barrel, the daily WTI price was below the “break-even” point for each day of the quarter. This resulted in a negative value for the payment calculation for the third quarter of 2020. However, as provided in the Trust Agreement, the payment with respect to the Royalty Interest for any calendar quarter may not be less than zero.

Neither the Trust nor the Trustee intends, and neither assumes any obligation, to update any of the statements included in this press release. An investment in units issued by the Trust is subject to the risks described in the Trust’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, the Trust’s subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, and all of the Trust’s other filings with the SEC. The Trust’s annual, quarterly and other filed reports are or will be available over the Internet at the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov.

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#CleanEnergy--kWh Analytics, the market leader in solar risk management, today released the “2020 Solar Generation Index” (SGI) in collaboration with ten of the industry’s fifteen largest solar asset owners. In parallel, the company announced that it issued the industry’s first Solar Technology Asset Risk (STAR) Comps reports with leading sponsors and asset owners, including New Energy Solar and Captona, to use industry data to validate solar production estimates on more than 1GW of solar assets.


The 2020 SGI report is the largest industry-wide energy validation study. The report analyzed over 30% of the market’s non-residential systems in the U.S. and found that on average, systems underperformed their initial estimates by 6.3% on a weather-adjusted basis. The report concluded that performance estimates are systemically over-estimated and that assets are often not yielding the expected returns.

Every mature asset class requires market data to improve the accuracy and certainty of investment returns. To address this need, kWh Analytics released the STAR Comps reports to provide an objective standard to assess solar performance for solar asset investors.

STAR Comps leverages the industry’s largest database of solar performance to validate or invalidate performance estimates and loss assumptions for similarly designed systems. The STAR Comps report supports deal teams by improving efficiency and accuracy of asset diligence for projects under construction or under consideration for M&A. It also provides asset managers with context on asset performance to identify addressable versus exogenous performance issues.

“The STAR products are an innovative set of tools that combine analytics and industry data to offer unique insight into our systems' performance. Our asset management team can now validate and contextualize what we see in the field with industry metrics and more accurate weather analytics to inform our O&M strategies,” said Paul Whitacre, Director of Asset Management at New Energy Solar Manager.

“kWh Analytics has data on production results that were previously 'best guess' estimates. It was only a matter of time that we began using market data to validate those numbers,” said Captona Founder and Partner Izzet Bensusan. “The STAR Comps product helps bridge the gap between the Independent Engineer reports and actual performance of projects and provides insight into what we can expect as the future owner and operator of a project.”

“Although underperformance impacts multiple stakeholders, the long-term equity investors are the most exposed to inaccurate energy forecasts. Change won’t happen on its own. It is up to us as an industry to collectively allow hard data to overcome opinions, however well-intended,” said kWh Analytics CEO and Founder Richard Matsui. “We look forward to the shared work of improving our solar industry and accelerating the clean energy transition.”

Equipped with objective data and comparables through STAR, the solar industry can course correct and improve accuracy and certainty of its investment returns.

Virtual event announces the opening to traffic as of Monday, Oct. 5


LONG BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#LongBeach--A sparkling parade of green trucks, a dramatic vintage aircraft flyover and fireboat sprays christened today’s ceremonial opening of the new bridge at the Port of Long Beach, reaffirming the region’s importance to international shipping and heralding in an iconic structure that dramatically shifts the Southern California skyline.

Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia dedicated California’s first cable-stayed bridge for traffic, a 515-foot-tall, two-tower span that provides an important starting point for national cargo movement and a much-improved transportation link for commuters in coastal communities of Los Angeles and Orange counties.

The six-lane, nearly 2-mile-long bridge is scheduled to open to traffic Monday morning, marking the end of a nearly 10-year, $1.47 billion effort to replace the 52-year-old Gerald Desmond Bridge, which was too narrow and too low to accommodate today’s roadway cargo traffic demands and the larger cargo ships that began arriving at the Port of Long Beach years ago. While the Port of Long Beach is big ship ready, the lower Desmond Bridge was nearing its expected lifespan, and needed to be replaced to provide a long-term, reliable connection to Terminal Island. More than 15 percent of the nation’s imported container cargo travels over this bridge route.

This is a historic day for our city and for the nation,” said Mayor Robert Garcia. “We know that this project is a phenomenal marvel of architecture and infrastructure. It connects our Port and the world to each other. All of the commerce that we depend on will go over this bridge — connecting Long Beach to the rest of the country.”

Today’s virtual and socially distanced ceremonies, while physically closed to the public because of COVID-19 restrictions, were broadcast live via social media and included taped greetings from more than a dozen top elected representatives, local labor leaders and funding partners. The new bridge was jointly funded by the Port of Long Beach, Caltrans, the U.S. Department of Transportation and Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro).

This new bridge is another major milestone in the Port’s ongoing commitment to remain the most advanced and most competitive port in the world,” said Mario Cordero, Executive Director of the Port of Long Beach. “It is much more than a convenient roadway. It is a critical link in the global movement of cargo. It is a bridge to everywhere.”

The bridge serves one of the largest port complexes in the world. More than 2.5 million jobs throughout the U.S. are related to the Port of Long Beach. Every year, the Port handles cargo valued at more than $170 billion.

The Port of Long Beach is all about providing a modern, thriving port complex that means good-paying jobs for thousands of people in Long Beach and Southern California,” said Frank Colonna, President of the Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners.

The new bridge, which will be named later through state legislation, will eventually include a bicycle and walking path that brings visitors to a 205-foot-high view of the Southern California coastline. Announcements on the expected opening of the Mark Bixby Memorial Bicycle Pedestrian Path, named in honor of the late bicycle advocate, will be made at a later time.

Construction of the new bridge has been monitored extensively around the world by engineers and bridge designers since conception and featured on the Science and Discovery channels as well as countless news stories.

The opening of the bridge is the result of hundreds of thousands of hours of work from skilled craftsmen, engineers, designers, and project managers,” said Bob Schraeder, project manager for SFI*, the bridge contractor. “We all rejoice in the accomplishment of completing THE signature bridge for Southern California, which in addition to being used by the Port of Long Beach for the transport of goods, will be a monument for our children and grandchildren and will serve many generations to come.”

With the highest deck of any cable-stayed bridge in the United States, the new bridge is designed to last 100 years with minimal maintenance and considered one of the most seismically advanced structures in the country. The bridge includes German-design joints at each end of the main span that move up to six feet in three directions during a very strong earthquake. These joints, large dampers, and other features are designed to provide flexibility and elastic points of isolation that enable bridge segments to move independently without casing significant damage to the bridge’s primary superstructure.

The new bridge features 18 million pounds of structural steel, 75 million pounds of rebar and 1.7 million feet of cable – all American-made steel. If laid end-to-end, the cables would stretch about 322 miles – longer than the distance from Long Beach to Las Vegas.

The livestreamed commemoration featured a coordinated procession via land, sea and air highlighted by a “first drive” over the bridge led by 30 low- and zero-emissions cargo trucks representing the Port’s terminals and major shipping lines and 34 classic cars highlighting the 109-year history of the Port. The procession included the debut of Volvo’s battery-electric heavy-duty cargo truck that, along with other truck manufacturers building the latest zero- and low-emission vehicles, will help the Port of Long Beach achieve its clean air goals by 2035.

The ceremony also included a five-plane formation of the Torrance-based Tiger Squadron — historic warplanes offering a tribute to the Port’s prior legacy as a major U.S. Navy base — as well as a boat parade led by water-spouting fireboats, police boats, tugs and other vessels from state and federal agencies.

The project began in 2013 with a complex operation to clear obstructions from the new bridge’s path, including nearly two dozen active and abandoned oil wells buried deep in the soil. The new bridge required a massive foundation, given there is no bedrock near the surface. Crews drilled and constructed 352 8- and 6-foot diameter concrete and rebar piles that were nearly 180 feet deep. The right-of-way work also required realigning large underground utility lines — a process that sometimes required freezing the ground to prevent intrusion from the groundwater table — as well as overhead power lines.

From the foundation rose 100 columns to support approach lanes and the two signature towers. Construction of the approach spans involved the first-ever use of two massive movable scaffolding systems – self-advancing machines that provided workers a safer road-construction environment and reduced completion times.

With 80 cable strands holding the center span and column-supported approach lanes featuring more efficient ramps and turning lanes, the new bridge will provide a seamless, efficient transition to and from the southern terminus of the 710 Freeway at the east end of this major transportation link, and an integrated connection to State Route 47 and Terminal Island at the west end. The project features California’s first-ever “Texas U-turn,” a non-signaled undercrossing that enables continuous travel for trucks and cars.

Today’s broadcast, which included video segments on how the bridge was built, was hosted by Dr. Noel Hacegaba and Richard Cameron, deputy executive directors for the Port of Long Beach.

Speakers. Presented today via pre-taped remarks. Available for viewing via the project YouTube page. Speakers included: California Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis; CA Secretary of Transportation David Kim; Caltrans Director Toks Omishakin; Vincent Mammano, California Division Director for the Federal Highway Administration; U.S. Rep. Alan Lowenthal; CA state Senator Lena Gonzalez; CA state Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell; Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn: Los Angeles Mayor and Metropolitan Transportation Authority Chair Eric Garcetti; International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 13 President Ramon Ponce de Leon; California Transportation Commission Chair Hilary Norton; and, Executive Secretary of the Los Angeles-Orange Counties Building and Construction Trades Council Ron Miller.

CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pilot Chemical Corp., a privately owned and independent global specialty chemical company, announced today that Pamela Butcher will step down from her CEO role effective January 1, 2021. She will remain on the Pilot Board of Directors and serve as a special advisor to the Chairman.



This is part of a planned transition and structuring of the Pilot organization to continue the growth and innovation that has enabled it to be successful for more than 69 years, providing high-quality products and services to the disinfecting, sanitizing and cleaning; metalworking and lubricants; oil field and emulsion polymerization industries.

“Pam’s leadership and guidance over the past 10 years have been instrumental in making Pilot the success it is today,” said Paul Morrisroe, Chairman of the Pilot Board of Directors. “Without her determined efforts, visionary business acumen, industry knowledge and concern for employees, customers, and our communities, we wouldn’t be where we are today. We are extremely pleased to have her remain on our Board and to serve in a new capacity as a special advisor to the Chairman.”

Mike Clark, President and COO of the company, will continue in those roles, serving as the company’s top executive and reporting to the Board of Directors. He joined Pilot in early 2018 with more than 30 years in the industry and has been leading operations and, most recently, a successful strategy refresh.

“We are pleased with Mike’s leadership capabilities and his ability to deliver value-adding results in these challenging times,” said Morrisroe. “Mike is well respected within Pilot and the industry. The board looks forward to working with him as he leads the company going forward.”

Butcher, too, said she is pleased with the strategic direction and future growth trajectory of the company.

“Our Pilot team members and customers are at the center of all that we do. With our continued focus on innovation and investment in the business, the company is well positioned for the future to carry the momentum forward under Mike’s leadership,” she said. “I’m proud of our team and want to thank our customers for their support over the years. I’m looking forward to my new role.”

Over the next few months, Butcher and Clark will continue to work together to ensure a smooth transition.

“I appreciate not only the Board’s confidence in my ability to lead Pilot Chemical but also the high bar set by Pam,” said Clark. “I look forward to continuing to expand the company’s emphasis on high quality and innovation.”

As Clark assumes the top leadership position at the start of 2021, he will oversee nine locations and more than 400 employees.
