  • Transporting MAN engines through Nicaragua - not for the faint-hearted!

    When MAN diesel engines go travelling, it normally involves major logistical challenges. But the transport of eight 320 ton MAN 18V48/60B engines right across Nicaragua was an adventure-filled adrenaline rush which went way beyond all requirements to date. Tropical temperatures of around 40 degrees, undulating road surfaces, kerbsides and low-hanging power cables made the transport more difficult, and the power even had to be switched off in the port town of Corinto. Eruptions and ash clouds from the Momotombo volcano added to the excitement. After seven days, the MAN heavyweight engines reached the power plant set to ensure a reliable energy supply to the region around the million-strong Nicaraguan capital, Managua, by early 2017 at the latest.

  • Nicaragua's Great Divide - TechKnow

    Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the Americas, second only to Haiti. Poverty is rampant and easily witnessed on its streets. The dream of building a trans-Nicaragua canal connecting the Atlantic and the Pacific has been around for centuries, but despite prospects for economic growth, the latest China-backed canal project in Nicaragua is dividing the nation. The proposed Nicaragua Canal Project presents a classic trade-off between economic development and the protection of natural resources to the country. In this case, it is Lake Cocibolca (also known as Lake Nicaragua), the largest lake in Central America and a source of drinking water to thousands of Nicaraguans, that is in danger. In my legal opinion, it is completely evident that the canal law is against the constitution...

The $40 billion Nicaraguan canal project is expected to begin construction by the end of 2014 and could be completed by 2020. Beginning at the Pacific coast port of Brito, ships will cross Lake Nicaragua, before snaking through the jungle towards the country's Caribbean lowlands and the town of Bluefields on the eastern Coast.

Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the Americas, second only to Haiti. Poverty is rampant and easily witnessed on its streets. The dream of building a trans-Nicaragua canal connecting the Atlantic and the Pacific has been around for centuries, but despite prospects for economic growth, the latest China-backed canal project in Nicaragua is dividing the nation. The proposed Nicaragua Canal Project presents a classic trade-off between economic development and the protection of natural resources to the country. In this case, it is Lake Cocibolca (also known as Lake Nicaragua), the largest lake in Central America and a source of drinking water to thousands of Nicaraguans, that is in danger. In my legal opinion, it is completely evident that the canal law is against the constitution. Monica Lopez Baltodano, environmental attorney, Popol Na On the Pacific side, the coastal town of Gigante relies on the sea for its basic needs. This is set to change if the canal project goes through, as Gigante will serve as the Pacific port entrance. However, the less fortunate - in spite of the lack of information available to them - continue to embrace the project as a potential means to escape poverty. They have been promised a change and more opportunities as a result - but this is without knowing the consequences. Monica Lopez Baltodano, who is an environmental attorney and director of the Popol Na Foundation, an organisation which looks after local civil rights, sees the canal project as one of the biggest threats to local communities. She warns of the dangers of how the fallout for local resources will affect Nicaraguans. "They sell people dreams, that a huge investment like this is going to change completely the economical system in Nicaragua, and the poverty in Nicaragua ... it's completely unreal. It doesn't work that way," says Baltodano about the way in which President Daniel Ortega's government has sold the project to the desperate public. With most of the mainstream media consumed by everyday Nicaraguans completely controlled by Ortega's government too, the legal battle ahead for Baltodano and Popol Na is long and uncertain. Salvador Montenegro-Guillen is one of Nicaragua's leading scientists, a professor of ecology and limnology who was once the director of the Center for Research in Water Resources of Nicaragua. He echoes Baltodano's sentiments and voices his own concerns about the importance of the lake. "Lake Cocibolca is actually the jewel of the crown for this country because no other body of water has the quality and quantity of this lake," he says. As scientists continue their research to try to rescue the lake, one thing has become apparent - the technical and, in due effect, environmental effects of digging the canal will bring irreparable damage to Lake Cocibolca. Local newspaper Confidencial even took a depth finder through the proposed course of the canal to find that most of the distance across the lake was just too shallow for the purposes of the project. "That means that they would have to dig up 20 metres, almost. How are they going to get the sediments out [of the water], where are they going to put it? What does that mean for the lake? There needs to be more studies done," says Katherine Vammen, a microbiologist and research scientist at the University of Central America. When it comes down to a pros and cons debate, Monica Lopez Baltodano fears the worst. "To risk all of our most valuable resources, affecting more than 119,000 people, just to get 25,000 jobs for a small period of time ... it doesn't make any sense at all. And I worry that we are putting all of our future at risk by destroying Nicaragua's lake," she says. Could the project change the fortunes of Nicaragua or ruin the country's most environmentally sensitive areas?

Spanish/Nat Thousands of peasants are migrating illegally from Nicaragua into Costa Rica every month in search of jobs and better opportunities. They undertake dangerous and sometimes fatal journeys as they escape a country suffering from 65 percent unemployment and desperate poverty. Those who complete the journey face increased racial tension and an uncertain future. Thousands of Nicaraguans make the dangerous journey every month into Costa Rica as illegal immigrants. The journey on boat and foot takes at least three days. It is a dangerous venture but the need for better work opportunities drives them on. Two weeks ago, ten immigrants drowned while crossing the vast Nicaragua Lake on route to a new start in Costa Rica. The lake provides the easiest route and point of access into Costa Rica as it straddles Nicaragua's southern border. Those who take the risk must first board a boat bound for the lakeside port of San Carlos. The journey lasts 18 hours and is followed by a second stage, again by boat, along rivers across the Costa Rican border. It is the first time many of the families, who have paid four U-S dollars for the trip, have been on a boat or seen the lake. Their home is what they carry. Immigrants blame their plight on Nicaragua's high levels of unemployment, currently at 65 per cent, and low wages. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "People are going to Costa Rica because there are no jobs. We don't have any money so we have to make the journey through the mountains. Passports are very expensive so this is the only way." SUPER CAPTION: Nicaraguan immigrant Nicaraguans are taking ever more desperate moves to improve their plight as living conditions worsen. Half a million Nicaraguans now live and work in neighbouring Costa Rica and often arrive with as little as 20 U-S dollars in their pocket. The peasants undertaking this particular journey face deplorable conditions, sleep on deck and at the end of the boat trip face a three day walk to the Costa Rican border. On land they run the risk of being robbed and even murdered. Many are turned back by the Nicaraguan Coast Guard. Even those who make it to Costa Rica face an uncertain future as racial and social tension increases at the rise in illegal immigrants. The numbers coming across the border fluctuates from month to month but January's toll was estimated at eight-thousand people. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "To start with we emigrated because there was a war on. Now there isn't a war on, and we emigrate because we are hungry." SUPER CAPTION: Nicaraguan immigrant The influx continues unabated, fuelled by dreams of employment and opportunity in Costa Rica. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "We have suffered a lot of hardship and danger...but this is why we are looking for a job...somewhere to work and survive." SUPER CAPTION: Nicaraguan immigrant Recession, unemployment and hunger continue to plague Nicaragua. The search for a better life has become so strong people like these risk everything to find it.

I saw a lot of families during the day ( sorry I did not record ) during the day, but it was so beautiful and lots of culture from the locals. When you arrive to the port you do have to pay at the gate: Admission is five Cordobas ($0.20 cents) for pedestrian and 30.00 Córdobas ($1.20) vehicles, but when we arrived the guy at the entrance let my cousin and I in for free which is not too shabby. Oh and if you have kiddos, Children are free. There's plenty of security at the Port which makes you feel safe which is always a great thing! Please note that this was my first time here, and It was recommended that I return in the morning for fun day attractions: 1. Skating courts, playground, volleyball and basketball courts as well as soccer field ( yazzz )!! 2. Souvenir shops along the strip 3. Touring lake Managua via a small 2 floor vessel ( seen in my video ) 4. Sitting back on the benches or hanging out on the straw huts while enjoying ice cream or a cold beer! Around 8pm the scenery starts changing, as more couples and the night life begins to take over, which for me it was exactly what I was looking for. If you are ever in Managua Nicaragua stop by and enjoy the Puerto Salvador Allende! ~Social Media Happy Hour~ Instagram 1 ( Planners/Beauty/Fashion ) https://instagram.com/ms.glamiplans/ Instagram 2 https://instagram.com/ms.glamiplanssi...

Chinese company to build a $40 billion Nicaraguan canal

Originally published on December 25, 2013 Sign up for a free trial of News Direct's animated news graphics at http://newsdirect.nma.com.tw/Reuters.aspx Nicaragua is rapidly moving ahead with a plan to allow Chinese company HKND Group to build a huge canal connecting the country's Pacific and Atlantic coasts. The $40 billion Nicaraguan canal project is expected to begin construction by the end of 2014 and could be completed by 2020. Beginning at the Pacific coast port of Brito, ships will cross Lake Nicaragua, before snaking through the jungle towards the country's Caribbean lowlands and the town of Bluefields on the eastern Coast. The 286-kilometer-long canal will be more than three times the length of the Panama Canal. It needs to earn $1 billion annually to turn a profit, meaning it would have to immediately draw half of the Panama canal's current ship traffic. The Nicaraguan canal will measure 83 meters in width, 27.6 meters in depth and is designed for 400,000-ton-class vessels whereas the Panama Canal only allows vessels with a capacity below 150,000 tons. The Nicaraguan canal will accommodate large LNG carriers and oil tankers from the US and Venezuela heading toward China.The canal is expected to generate annual revenue of at least $5.5 billion, and could capture 4.5% of global cargo shipping traffic. The HKND Group will pay Nicaragua $10 million a year for 10 years and gradually transfer ownership to Nicaragua over a century. The project is said to be able to double Nicaragua's $10 billion GDP by 2018. The deal also allows the company to build tax-free side projects including ports on Nicaragua's Pacific and Atlantic coasts, an oil pipeline bisecting the country, two free-trade zones and a cargo railway and an international airport. However, environmental experts argue that the canal project could cause profound ecological damage to the country.

President Ma Ying-jeou arrived on Wednesday in Nicaragua, the third and final stop on his tour of the Caribbean and Central America. In a meeting with Nicaragua’s president, Ma was asked for Taiwan’s help in building a port, something he said he would evaluate once back in Taiwan.When President Ma arrived at the airport, he was greeted by the investment adviser to Nicaragua’s president and other officials. Nicaragua’s president Daniel Ortega appeared for a meeting between the two leaders. In the supposedly closed-door meeting, which ended up being broadcast nationally, Ortega reportedly asked Taiwan for money to build a port, but Ma said that was not the case.Ma Ying-jeouPresidentThey did not ask us to help them put up money for the port. He just asked if we could help with the planning. I hope they can give us a more concrete proposal and we will evaluate it after returning to Taiwan.Last year, China provided aid to Nicaragua to build a canal across the country, leading to speculation that Taiwan’s official ties with the country were at risk. In requesting help with the port, was Ortega using diplomatic relations to threaten Taiwan? Ma did not think so.Ma Ying-jeouPresidentThis is a step-by-step process that builds up over time. That’s diplomacy. There are not breakthroughs every day. But over time one sees steady results.The president continues to voice confidence in his flexible diplomacy, but Ortega’s attitude toward Taiwan has always been up and down, leaving a lingering shadow of uncertainty over the two countries’ diplomatic ties.

Wandering around the main street of Moyogalpa on Ometepe in Nicaragua. This is the main port for most ferries to and from the mainland so you will likely pass through at least once. Easy place to book tours but not the best town. Most people leave pretty quickly or just spend one night like I did.
