2022: So far In Venture Capital

Global investment in 2022 has been majorly dominated by North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, whereas the Middle East, and South and Central America have recorded low investments comparatively. In light of this, Europe and North America have been identified as the major destinations for Private Equity and Venture Capital (PE/VC) investments.   GlobalData’s whitepaper analyzes which sectors PE/VC firms have been investing in, looking at Technology, Media, and Telecom, with these sectors recording $356 billion and a deal volume of over 10,000 deals in 2022. Healthcare, Financial Services, Business & Consumer Services, and Construction sectors have also seen high investment activity by PE/VC firms, recording a deal value of over $70 billion each.   But what can this mean for you?   Understand how the Deals Database on GlobalData Explorer can be leveraged to:

The contractual scope includes the deepening, broadening and extension of the access channel and turning basin of the terminal.

Boskalis will perform dredging of approximately 32 million cubic metres of sand, silt and clay using a fleet of three large trailing suction hopper dredgers.

The terminal’s existing access channel has a depth of 20.5m, which accommodates Suezmax type vessels.

The expansion will increase the channel’s depth to 24.5m by late-2017, allowing the handling of large crude carriers.

Port of Rotterdam Authority (Port Authority) has entered a joint venture agreement with Pelindo 1 to construct a new port, Kuala Tanjung, on the Strait of Malacca in Indonesia.

The parties are yet to reach an investment decision for the development of the new port.

Concurrently, Port Authority has ratified a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Pelindo 2 and JakPro for the expansion of the port of Jakarta, Indonesia.

Pelindo 2 is an Indonesian state-owned port operator, while JakPro is a property developer owned by the Jakarta city.

Toll Shipping has chosen WE Tech Solutions (WE Tech) and Switch, to provide a permanent magnet shaft generator solution for its two new roll-on / roll-off (RORO) vessels. Delivery of the equipment is scheduled to commence by August 2017.

WE Tech’s variable frequency drive technology and Switch’s PM shaft generator solution will enable the main engine of the RORO vessels to operate at variable speeds.

Toll Shipping currently operates two RORO vessels between Tasmania and mainland Australia.

LMG Marin has received a contract to design a liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered double-ended ferry for Caronte & Tourist. It will be the first ferry in the Mediterranean Sea to run on LNG fuel.

Based on the LMG 290-DEG design, the new ferry will be 133m-long and 21.5m-wide, and will be powered by three dual-fuel engines.

The vessel will be constructed by Sefine Shipyard in Turkey, for delivery in 2018. It will carry 290 cars on twin vehicle decks and 1,500 passengers.
