    Transportes Cepelludo – Spreading the risk

    June 2019

    The route to the village of Salces, high in the mountains of the Spanish province of Cantabria, runs along the beautiful artificial lake at the source of the main river in Spain, the Ebro. The mountain tops on the horizon are more than 2,500 metres high and even on a hot summer’s day they still have snow on them. The people living in the mountains are hard workers, shaped by the cold winters and hot summers. And exactly in a cold winter on the mountainside, that’s where the history of Transportes Cepelludo begins. An interview with angel perez salces.

    Affolter Transporte AG – Like a Swiss

    May 2019

However, the heavy combinations of Affolter are rarely seen on the European motorways and they only visit the ports of Rotterdam, Antwerp or Hamburg sporadically. Switzerland has a special place in Europe. It is not a member of the EU, but it is positioned as a sort of island in between the member states of the EU. The area Affolter Transporte operates in is the ‘Mittelland’. This is the undulating, partly flat plateau between Lake Constance and Lake Geneva. an interview with Rudolph and Ernst Affolter.

    Wind energy without subsidy – background story

    April 2019

    End 1980 the first commercial wind project sprang up on the hillsides of Crotched Mountain in Southwest New Hampshire (USA): twenty windmills with a total capacity of 0.6 MW. The interest for wind energy blew over from the United States to Europe and in the nineties the number of windmills increased dramatically. Nooteboom keeps a close eye on the world of wind energy through own research. Wind energy is now used worldwide. Interesting emerging markets are Russia, Argentina, Saudi-Arabia and Vietnam. Lengthy procedures and stringent regulations restrict the growth in Europe. Everyone wants to back the switch to clean energy, but no one likes to see a windmill in their back yard. Via political decisions about the levels of subsidies, the government decides the pace at which we can switch to wind energy.
