Does UAE use nuclear reactors for power?

They are using coal and gas. A nuclear power plant is being built now and nearing completion as far as I know.

Your statement is correct.
Unfortunately it is not something that can be discussed much on an open forum  ::)

The usual speed limit on the roads here in the UAE are basically the same as in SA, ranging from 40 to 120, with a buffer of 20km/h before the speed cameras are activated. The buffer rule is not applicable in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi where the indicated speed is the maximum and speed cameras are activated 1 km/h over that limit.

However between Al Ain and Abu Dhabi this is the maximum speed limit.

Yep - working now - thanks :thumleft:

Love that Fiat 500 - original.

The black and white looks nice but then the colour one does as well - can't choose between the two  :imaposer:

Thanks for posting  :thumleft:

As mentioned before we are constructing reverse osmosis desalination plants. Water are fed into the plant via 3 humongous pipes (2m diametre) which stretches 2km into the sea.
We are using HDPE pipes as it is cheaper than GRP pipes. The HDPE pipes need to be welded together, the welding process is in simple terms heating the ends of the plastic pipes to a certain temperature and then pushing the ends of the pipes together fusing them to each other. We weld lines of 300m, add concrete collars, that will act as ballasts, pulling the lines into the sea and then sinking them at the correct place.
Each weld takes about 3 hours to complete, so we are going to weld pipes for the next 4 months......

I know you are doing it but check every aspect of the HDPE composition, third party testing and welding inspection, cleaning and certification. I have a ticklish little problem at the moment with HDPE.

Very interesting project.

Thanks for mentioning it and as you have said we have everything in place.

OK I am on the East coast of KSA at the moment and had to go to our office in Riyad, roughly 450kms away. So here is a couple of pictures of the trip.



Black or dark brown camels are apparently more expensive than the light coloured ones.  :dontknow:



Hopefully the competitors in the coming Dakar dont have to cope with all these difficult town names..



or not being caught-up in one of these.....



or have to wait for this



or going to fast...



the trucks have to take notice







Took me a couple of seconds to work this one out
