“The crawler crane industry in India is at crossroads, as the market has matured in recent years and shed its skepticism on utility of highly advanced machinery. End-users are now willing to invest in premium equipment, thereby providing an impetus to manufacturers to introduce high-tech products,” says Mr. Shambhu Nath Jha, Senior Consultant at Fact.MR.

“The transition phase of the construction equipment industry in India alludes a cascading effect on crane rental cost, if there is any slack in demand. However, presence of manufacturers that sell counterfeit products at lower cost continues to pose adverse impacts on productivity, reliability and performance of crawler cranes. This will confine future growth prospects of the industry,” concludes Mr. Jha.

MTS Russia leveraged iBwave Design’s planning, propagation and capacity modelling features to deliver one the largest deployments of Massive MIMO in Europe to date

MONTREAL, Canada, 06-Jul-2018 — /EPR INDUSTRIAL NEWS/ — iBwave, the global standard for designing multi-technology in-building networks announced today that MTS, the leading telecommunications group in Russia, has successfully used iBwave Design to plan, design, deploy and manage modern high density and high capacity wireless networks for the 2018 Soccer tournament.

One of the main challenges during a major event like this is to be ready for the massive data demands put forward by excited fans using multiple devices in a stadium’s complex environment. To enable a fast, reliable fan experience during the 2018 Soccer, MTS Russia leveraged iBwave Design’s planning, propagation and capacity modelling features to quickly deliver one the largest deployments of Massive MIMO in Europe to date. iBwave Design was used to successfully plan and deploy high capacity networks for the following stadiums and surrounding areas: Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow (capacity: 80,000), Spartak Stadium, Moscow (capacity 45000), Rostov Arena Rostov-on-Don (capacity 45000) and Kazan Arena, Kazan (capacity 45000).

Through iBwave’s ability to design mobile networks in large complex venues such as stadiums, operators like MTS can create the ultimate wireless experiences by meeting the demands of a large number of people at a specific time without compromising on speed and quality. There is no margin for error in such an environment when the service is needed then and there without any disruption. Many players are needed to create this experience and iBwave’s design capability ties this all together. With iBwave on its team, MTS was able to deliver a great end user experience by leveraging design features such as signal and capacity modeling right down to inclined surfaces, complex architecture and body-loss calculations when the stadium is filled to capacity.

“It is always difficult to predict mobile consumer needs in high density, high capacity environments- particularly for a world class sporting event such this, where thousands of sports fans are simultaneously using multiple devices across multiple technologies,” says Seth Roy, Vice President Product Line Management at iBwave. “Based on our experience of connecting major sporting events such as past World Cups and the Olympics, our tools are the ideal choice to prepare for the huge amounts of data requirements during the 2018 World Cup. We are proud to support MTS in this project and extremely excited to be part of the design and deployment of Europe’s largest Massive MIMO experiences”, he added.

More than 3 million spectators are estimated to watch the games live during this month-long event, which is underway until July 15th.

Mixed Fortunes for Engineers and Their Colleagues

Results from Reed’s recent report ‘Meeting the People Challenge’ indicate that employers large and small have been seeking alternatives to redundancy, such as extended holidays and flexible working schemes. Whilst many engineering firms have been unable to avoid lay-offs, others have fared better and are now planning to hire. Mark Blay, Area Manager for Reed Engineering in St Albans, agrees that many of his clients have sought to avoid redundancies – but for many, it’s just not possible: ‘There have been more instances of unpaid leave; less so for reduced working hours,’ he says. ‘And of course, some companies regard the current situation as an opportunity to have a clear-out. But good candidates – people who in a different economic climate would have a choice of new roles – are still being released.’

Mixed Fortunes for Engineers and Their Colleagues

No choice

Amongst Reed Engineering’s clients, candidates in electrical and mechanical maintenance jobs have been in the firing line. ‘If order books are down, and production lines are not running at full capacity, there’s less plant to look after,’ says Blay. ‘Although building maintenance people have been less adversely affected.’ Many organisations are holding on to key senior people in readiness for a future surge in business. Yet companies with more complex hierarchies have been forced to strip out layers of management. According to Blay, business development and sales people in consulting firms have been hit hard: ‘Even though market forces are mostly to blame – rather than poor selling or account management skills – if business isn’t coming in, companies can’t afford to employ them.’

Engineering employers don’t appear to be stepping up with temporary recruitment,despite that being the case in other sectors. ‘It can appear unfair making redundancies and subsequently hiring temporary employees, but the temporaries regularly have varied skill sets, whilst enabling short-term flexibility, and can be released at a moment’s notice. Once order books improve and there is a more confident long-term outlook for the companies concerned, they may then revert to permanent hires.’

Hays Engineering Heralds Engineering Infrastructure Boost

The significant investment in the UK’s infrastructure continues to bolster demand for specialist engineering skills, according to the leading specialist recruitment consultancy, Hays Engineering. Those professionals who can demonstrate experience working on the railways, highways, bridges, in transport planning, or in environmental and drainage roles are all highly sought after by employers.

The upgrading of the rail infrastructure has bolstered demand for rail engineers: projects are varied and can encompass station design and refurbishment to resignalling and maintenance schemes. The Channel Tunnel Rail Link (CTRL) or High Speed 1 (HS1) link is a prominent example of major investment in the rail industry. “Rail, signal and electrification engineers are all keenly sought specialist skills. Roles for rail engineers exist at all levels of experience, from graduate and intermediate through to senior engineering jobs appointments,” said Sean Fitzgerald, senior consultant at Hays Engineering.

The recent spate of flooding that has wreaked havoc across parts of the UK has reinforced the need for land drainage and flood defence expertise, as local authorities and the Environment Agency work closely to mitigate the damaging effects of future flooding by conducting flood risk and alleviation studies. “The demand for land drainage engineers has spiralled and the recommendations from Sir Michael Pitt’s Flood Review final report (2008) have only added to the importance of these specialist roles,” stressed Grant Edwards, manager for Hays Engineering.

Transport planning and modelling expertise is another specialist area that is in demand, as the need for assessing the transport impact of developments, traffic and people flow in and around the UK’s major conurbations becomes ever greater. “Technical modelling skills and knowledge of industry simulation and traffic modelling packages, such Vissim, Vissum, Saturn and Transyt are all prized skill sets,” commented Katherine Whipps, Manager at Hays Engineering.

The assessment and inspection of bridge structures has also created opportunities for qualified structural bridge engineers and bridge inspectors to work on the UK’s canals and estuaries. “Knowledge of bridge design software and the BS5400 cod of practice are pre-requisites,” added Katherine Whipps.

While engineering recruitment has slowed in some sectors as the result of the economic downturn, continued investment in the UK’s infrastructure has not affected the demand for drainage, rail, highways, bridges, environmental and transport engineers. All roles require experience and typically knowledge of sector specific design packages but employers are also looking for individuals with excellent communication and people skills who can also demonstrate leadership potential.
