The CoveCOVE is excited to announce that IBM Canada has joined the ocean business park as a tenant, one of 50 currently in residence.
 
“We are very pleased to welcome IBM Canada to COVE,” says Jim Hanlon, CEO at COVE. “IBM has proven its commitment to the growing field of ocean data analytics and we feel this new tenancy at COVE further helps support COVE’s position as a significant hub for ocean technology, not just in Nova Scotia, but globally.”
 
IBM is one of Canada’s top 10 private R&D investors and last year contributed more than $478 million to Canadian research activities. In September 2018, it was revealed that IBM, along with COVE, Dalhousie University, the Ocean Frontier Institute, the Government of Canada, local industry and the Province of Nova Scotia, were collaborating on the rollout of DeepSense  – a world class big ocean data innovation environment.
 
“IBM is committed to supporting the development and commercialization of ‘made in Canada’ products and services, and we are proud to be present at COVE as they help to bolster the region's position as a global hub for ocean expertise,” says Calvin Gosse, Atlantic Public Sector Client Executive at IBM Canada. “COVE represents a significant opportunity to contribute to the ocean economy by sharing collaborative space with highly skilled local enterprises working together on major initiatives, such as DeepSense, advancing ocean analytics.”
 
IBM has a unique approach to collaboration that provides academic researchers, small and large business, start-ups and developers with business strategies and computing tools they need to innovate. Other areas of focus for IBM Canada include health, agile computing, water, energy, cities, mining, advanced manufacturing, digital media and cybersecurity.

UPDATE ON LUXURY TAX OPPOSITION

 

Luxury Tax OppositionFollowing its seventh annual “Day on the Hill” lobby day in Ottawa last month, NMMA Canada is continuing to advocate against the federal government’s proposed 10% luxury tax on recreational boats over $100,000. History has shown that similar taxes have failed to raise the expected revenue for governments while putting thousands of rural and small-town jobs at risk. The industry believes there are other financial measures that can be applied instead of a tax that would be beneficial to government and less impactful on industry.

HUBBELL CIRCUIT TESTER VERIFIES CONNECTIONS WITH EASE

Hubbell Circuit TesterChecking shorepower connections for proper wiring can be time-consuming, especially when working in dimly-lit or difficult-to-access locations. An innovative UL- and CL-listed Twist-Lock Circuit Tester from Hubbell Marine speeds this process by using simple LED visual codes to indicate electrical circuit conditions.

The patented, compact design of the HBLT26CM11 Twist-Lock Circuit Tester closely resembles a standard Hubbell Twist-Lock Plug. Once inserted into a 30A/125V receptacle, its LED back panel immediately displays whether the circuit is complete and properly wired.
