Welcoming the world to Harvard

first_imgThere are 25 gates through which thousands of people enter Harvard Yard every day, but with the completion of the Richard A. and Susan F. Smith Campus Center, the Cambridge campus will have a new way for them to experience the University.Thanks to the generous support of the Moise Y. Safra Foundation, the Moise Y. Safra Welcome Pavilion at the entrance of the Smith Campus Center will make the renewed facility an invaluable resource for students, faculty, the local community, and visitors when it reopens in 2018.“The family of Moise Safra has provided the University with a true front door,” said Drew Faust, president of Harvard University. “Thanks to their generosity, aspiring students and their families, as well as visitors from around the world, will come to know Harvard, in part, through a welcoming point of departure at the heart of our campus. We look forward to celebrating the opening of a new common space for the entire community to enjoy.”Safra, a prominent Brazilian philanthropist whose career spanned the worlds of finance and real estate, and his wife, Chella, had three children attend Harvard College and were longtime supporters of the Harvard College Fund. The family also established a chair of economics in 2005, currently held by Professor Jeremy Stein.“Our father always felt that Harvard improved the world and welcomed our entire family. It was a relationship he cherished for so much of his life. What could be a more fitting tribute to his legacy than to return that warm welcome for generations to come?” said his sons Jacob Safra ’92, M.B.A. ’95, and Edmond Safra ’98, members of the foundation’s board.The Moise Y. Safra Welcome Center, and the Smith Campus Center more broadly, are part of Faust’s Common Spaces program. Started in 2009, the program has converted areas across campus — such as Science Center Plaza, the Porch at Memorial Church, the Dudley House patio, and Harvard Yard itself — into informal gathering places.last_img read more

Odfjell Drilling acquiring stake in Norwegian floating wind developer

first_imgOdfjell Drilling is investing in Oceanwind AS with an aim to acquire a stake that would ensure a controlling position in the Norway-based floating wind company. “In 2001, as founders of SWAY, we initiated the game-changing technology for floating offshore wind turbines. Almost twenty years later we have decided to enter the business of owning and operating such assets and become an important contributor to the reduction of fossil fuel emissions”, said Oceanwind Founder Jon Erik Borgen and CTO/Founder Eystein Borgen. “Developing solutions to connect our rigs to offshore wind installations is one possible road to zero emission drilling. With ownership in Oceanwind, we are well positioned to make it a reality”, said Per Lund, EVP Technology & Sustainability of Odfjell Drilling. A long-term goal for Oceanwind is “to own and operate harsh environment floating offshore wind turbines” and, according to the two companies’ press release from 27 August, both believe that partnering is a winning combination for further commercialising offshore wind energy. Oceanwind AS has been founded by a team that was part of Sway, a Norwegian technology developer that tested the Sway turbine in 2010/2011. “Our objective is to create value for our shareholders and society by leveraging almost five decades of competence in operating floating assets in harsh environments to develop a solid concept within offshore wind together with Oceanwind’s founders. I hope this day is the beginning of a new chapter, and another major milestone in the company’s history”. “In 1971, Rederiet Odfjell made the final investment needed to complete the first floating drilling rig design ever created in Norway. This was the beginning of what we now recognise as Odfjell Drilling. I believe we are in a similar situation today”, said Simen Lieungh, CEO of Odfjell Drilling AS. According to the Norwegian offshore drilling contractor, the move will support it on a path to zero-emissions drilling through projects that would connect its rigs to floating wind farms. Odfjell Drilling’s buy-in is now subject to successful completion of the contemplated equity tranches, according to the company.last_img read more
