  • 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. For more information on our power plant en...

  • NICARAGUA: SLOW AID DISTRIBUTION CAUSES OUTCRY

    Spanish/Nat Hundreds of tons of hurricane aid destined for victims of Hurricane Mitch have been left abandoned on the dock side of a port town in Nicaragua. The cargo, which has sat untouched for three weeks, was originally sent by U-S donors to be distributed by a charity headed by Nicaragua's First Lady Maria Dolores Aleman. The hurricane, which hit last October, left over 40-thousand families homeless, many of whom are living in makeshift camps close to starvation some 40 kilometers from the port itself. For three weeks, hundreds of tons of hurricane aid sent from abroad has stood at this Nicaraguan port, stacked up in metal containers under the hot sun. The supplies are destined for the victims of Hurricane Mitch - a ferocious storm that left 3-thousand people dea...

    The Nicaraguan alternative to the Panama Canal will be a waterway connecting the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans and is to be the most ambitious construction project in Latin America. On Monday Nicaragua officially began work on a canal which will be a competitor to the Panama Canal 600 kilometers south. The Nicaragua canal will be capable of handling the super-heavy class ships with the capacity of up to 400,000 tons. It will be 278 kilometers long and 30 meters deep, which makes it wider and deeper that the century old Panama Canal. It is expected to be completed and operational by 2019. The canal will reduce the cost of transporting goods via sea between America, Europe and Asia by about 30 percent. Experts believe it will be able to handle more than 5,000 high tonnage vessels a year....

The hurricane, which hit last October, left over 40-thousand families homeless, many of whom are living in makeshift camps close to starvation some 40 kilometers from the port itself. For three weeks, hundreds of tons of hurricane aid sent from abroad has stood at this Nicaraguan port, stacked up in metal containers under the hot sun. The supplies are destined for the victims of Hurricane Mitch - a ferocious storm that left 3-thousand people dead and 40-thousand families homeless or with homes severely damaged across the country. Such emergency supplies are badly needed. But public outcry is growing over their slow distribution. The donors, from the Los Angeles area of California, U-S, are angry their gifts have got no further than the dock side wharfs in the port of Puerto Corinto. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "It is not the fault of the port - we don't even earn for this help destined for the government. We run everything to do with aid, free of charge. So it would not be the case that the port is detaining this help." SUPER CAPTION :Charles Whitaker, port administrator An hour's drive away thousands of victims continue living in the makeshift refugee camps. This is one, called La Virgin, in the hard hit Posoltega region. The people here have lost almost everything and rely on help and government hand outs in order to survive. But there is hunger and always the threat of disease. Mothers here say the food rations they receive are insufficient to feed the family. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "We need it. I find this bad because they could deliver it and they have not given it to us, knowing that we all need it." SUPER CAPTION: Porfirio Poveda, hurricane Mitch survivor SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "All the people living in these tents are in need of food, at La Virgin, at Posoltega and many other shelters. Here we are many, more than one hundred families." Q: "Do you see this as an injustice?" A: "It is an injustice because they have it stranded and it is not for them, it is for the people. We need it." SUPER CAPTION: Doña Dominga Sequeira, hurricane Mitch survivor The delays with the shipment from Los Angeles have triggered yet further controversy given that the charity responsible for its distribution is headed by Nicaragua's First Lady, the president's daughter Maria Dolores Aleman. She has just returned from Ecuador where she spent her Easter week. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "Look. We are in government to try and help. You can't deal with the needs of the people of Nicaragua in a day. The destruction took place in a week. The reconstruction will take years. It is going to take a long time. Sadly, we can't respond to all the needs as we would like to but yes, we are trying to do all that is possible." SUPER CAPTION: Maria Dolores Aleman, Nicaragua's First Lady SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "I read an article in the Los Angeles Times which said that they had not distributed the aid for 17 days. The point is also that it was in Los Angeles for three months. Then there was Easter Week. I understand the frustration, the fact that many of the American donors want it to be distributed as quickly as possible. And I am sure that the government will try and do just that."

The canal will reduce the cost of transporting goods via sea between America, Europe and Asia by about 30 percent. Experts believe it will be able to handle more than 5,000 high tonnage vessels a year. The construction of the canal will provide the country with a large number of new jobs and will contribute to the improvement of the economic situation, given the fact that Nicaragua is one of the poorest countries in Latin America, said Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega at the opening ceremony. More than 50 thousand people will participate in the project worth about $50 billion. A new port, an international airport and a free trade zone are part of the plans along with the canal itself. The Nicaraguan government says the project would raise annual economic growth to more than 10 percent. However, the project’s implementation is sparking protests among local environmentalists who say it will cause significant damage. The possible pollution of Lake Nicaragua, the largest reservoir of fresh water in Central America, raises much concern. Local residents have been protesting against the destruction, as around 30,000 farmers are expected to be forced off their land due to the construction, according to AFP agency. The project was proposed by the HK Nicaragua Canal Development Investment Co Ltd (HKND Group). HKND is headed by Chinese lawyer Wang Jing, who also heads China’s Xinwei Telecom Enterprise Group. READ MORE: http://on.rt.com/jldyw7 ۞=============================۞ NICARAGUA bermula KERJA pada $ 50bn TERUSAN Antara 2LAUTAN . . . Alternatif Nicaragua untuk Terusan Panama akan menjadi laluan air yang menghubungkan Atlantik dan lautan Pasifik dan projek pembinaan yang paling bercita-cita tinggi di Amerika Latin. Pada Isnin Nicaragua secara rasmi memulakan kerja pada saluran yang akan menjadi pesaing kepada Terusan Panama 600 kilometer ke selatan. Terusan Nicaragua akan mampu mengendalikan kapal-kapal kelas super-berat dengan kapasiti sehingga 400,000 tan. Ianya akan menjadi 278 kilometer panjang dan 30 meter, yang menjadikan ia lebih luas dan lebih mendalam bahawa abad lama Terusan Panama. Ia dijangka siap dan beroperasi menjelang 2019. Terusan akan mengurangkan kos mengangkut barang-barang melalui laut di antara Amerika, Eropah dan Asia oleh kira-kira 30 % peratus. Pakar percaya ia akan dapat mengendalikan lebih daripada 5,000 kapal muatan tinggi setahun. Pembinaan terusan akan menyediakan negara dengan sejumlah besar pekerjaan baru dan akan menyumbang kepada peningkatan keadaan ekonomi, memandangkan hakikat bahawa Nicaragua adalah salah satu negara yang paling miskin di Amerika Latin, kata Presiden Nicaragua Daniel Ortega pada pembukaan majlis. Lebih daripada 50 ribu orang akan mengambil bahagian dalam projek ini bernilai kira-kira $ 50 bilion. Sebuah pelabuhan baru, lapangan terbang antarabangsa dan zon perdagangan bebas adalah sebahagian daripada rancangan bersama-sama dengan tali air itu sendiri. Kerajaan Nicaragua berkata projek itu akan meningkatkan pertumbuhan ekonomi tahunan kepada lebih daripada 10 % peratus. Walau bagaimanapun, pelaksanaan projek itu mencetus protes kalangan aktivis alam sekitar tempatan yang mengatakan ia akan menyebabkan kerosakan yang ketara. Pencemaran mungkin Tasik Nicaragua, takungan terbesar air tawar di Amerika Tengah, menimbulkan kebimbangan banyak. Penduduk tempatan telah membantah terhadap pemusnahan, seperti sekitar 30,000 petani dijangka dipaksa dari tanah mereka akibat pembinaan, menurut agensi AFP. Projek ini telah dicadangkan oleh HK Nicaragua Terusan Pembangunan Pelaburan Co Ltd (HKND Kumpulan). HKND diketuai oleh peguam Cina Wang Jing, yang juga mengetuai Xinwei Telecom Enterprise Group China. ilmu2lautan http://knowledge2ocean.blogspot.com/

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.

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.

Located on the southwestern shore of Lake Xolotlán or Lake Managua, the city was declared the national capital in 1852.[2] Prior to its inception as the capital city, the title had alternated between the cities of León and Granada. The 1972 Nicaragua earthquake and the ensuing years of war in the 1980s severely disrupted and stunted Managua's growth. It was not until the mid-1990s that Managua began to see a resurgence in investment and infrastructural development. The city has a metropolitan population of about 2,408,000, which includes the neighboring cities of Ciudad Sandino and Tipitapa. Managua is composed predominantly of mestizos and whites who are mainly of Spanish descent, with a minority being of French, Jewish Nicaraguan, German Nicaraguan, Italian, Russian and Turkish descent. Managua is the second most populous city in Central America, after Guatemala City.
