VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Canadian mining company Nevsun Resources Ltd.(NSU) is being sued for complicity in torture, forced labour, slavery, and crimes against humanity, according to a new lawsuit filed in British Columbia.
Earlier today, three plaintiffs filed suit in the Supreme Court of British Columbia against Nevsun, a Vancouver-based international mining company whose primary operation is its Bisha mine in western Eritrea (“Bisha Mine”). The plaintiffs allege that they and other Eritreans were forced to work against their will on the construction of the mine.
The Bisha Mine is a gold, copper, and zinc mine owned and operated by Bisha Mining Share Company (BMSC), a majority-owned, indirect subsidiary of Nevsun. The Eritrean government holds a 40% stake in BMSC through the state-owned Eritrean National Mining Corporation (ENAMCO).
They were statements made by the CEO. It is so simple, why haven't they happened? The last was just a "Press Release" away. NO PR YET!
Green hydrogen is key
Designed and commissioned by the SWISH2 consortium, the new state-of-the-art facility is located at the Honda of the UK Manufacturing site on the outskirts of Swindon. The ‘green’ hydrogen is generated onsite using an electrolyser powered by solar energy, to make this a completely zero-carbon hydrogen production facility.
The consortium comprises BOC, Honda, van operators Commercial Group and Swindon Borough Council, stationary unit integrator Fuel Cell Systems, forklift company Briggs Equipment, and Revolve Technologies, which converted the vans to run on hydrogen.
The consortium worked together to secure funding from the Technology Strategy Board (now Innovate UK), and to design and commission the facility.
Using a PEM fuel cell to provide both power and heat to a building is a notable first in this power range. The project benefited from our previous experiences of using hydrogen produced onsite for infrastructure power.
Karen Sperrey, Operations Director at Fuel Cell Systems
Fuel cell powered forklifts
The hydrogen from the main refueling station is also supplied via an underground pipeline to a smaller refueling station inside a nearby factory building.
This hydrogen station is used to refuel two fuel cell powered Yale forklifts, supplied by Briggs Equipment and powered by Plug Power fuel cell modules.
It amazes me how your post shows lack of any D/D. In the link if you could find it and even read it you would see the Plug and ReLion icons. Your loss!

MCCOOK, Ill — Golden State Foods (GSF) hosted a grand opening ceremony for its new 158,000 square-foot Chicago distribution center yesterday, inviting guests to tour and experience the facility’s innovative features. The new building now serves more than 460 McDonald’s customers in the Chicago and Northwest Indiana market and will be the first center within GSF and the McDonald’s distribution community to be LEED Gold Certified.
“We are so proud to unveil our latest distribution center in Chicago,” said Mark Wetterau, CEO of Golden State Foods. “The new building is a milestone in our larger goals toward environmental sustainability and excellent customer service and will serve as a benchmark for future and existing facilities within the GSF distribution community.”
The new, state-of-the-art Chicago distribution center replaces its former location in Lemont and provides additional storage space within the facility. The center strives to reduce diesel consumption with electric stand-by power for outbound trailers and is using rainwater for irrigation purposes. In addition, the facility is utilizing hydrogen power, clear panel windows, LED lighting, and a highly efficient Cascade refrigeration system.
From an article on new facility at Golden State Foods. A new customer for both ReliOn and PLUG.
The new center is ISO 14001 certified, and has a robust set of standards that focuses on GSF’s environmental management systems, sustainability and recycling programs, conservation, compliance and waste diversion. It also has begun operating an automated truck wash that is equipped with an auto-recovery system to minimize water consumption. With the goal of reducing dependence on electricity, the new hydrogen generation plant was completed last month. This system implements hydrogen fuel cells as an alternative energy source for forklift and pallet jack equipment operation, replacing the use of traditional batteries and chargers.
GSF hosted almost 200 guests, including valued McDonald’s team members and customers, who toured the new, state-of-the-art facility and participated in a ribbon-cutting and reception. Guests also had the opportunity to experience the new test kitchen, run by GSF Chef Glenn Lewis from Conyers. The large on-site kitchen will serve to engage GSF’s customers in the development of new products and ideas proposed by associates.
Speakers at the grand opening included Jeff Tobolski, Mayor of McCook, Mark Wetterau, CEO of Golden State Foods, Wayne Luter, General Manager of the new McCook location and Bob Stewart of the McDonald’s U.S. Field and Supply Chain Services. Stewart, speaking on behalf of McDonald’s customers, was especially pleased by the advances made in the new facility.
