Nikola suing Tesla over alleged electric semi truck patent infringement


Nikola One

Nikola Motor Company filed a lawsuit Tuesday against Tesla Inc., alleging the electric-car company infringed on several of its Class 8 truck design patents.

The hydrogen-electric truck startup claims Tesla’s Semi – set for production next year – violates Nikola patents for the truck’s fuselage design, mid-entry door and wrap-around windshield.

“The Tesla Semi design is substantially similar to Nikola’s unique design, and Tesla copied Nikola’s patents,” the filing claims.

Supporting its claim that the two designs are remarkably similar, Nikola pointed out the aerodynamic drag coefficient of both tractors is almost the same. The Tesla Semi claims a drag coefficient of 0.36, while Nikola One claims a drag coefficient of 0.37.

An ordinary observer would find that the Tesla Semi fuselage is substantially similar to the [Nikola] Fuselage Patent, and that Tesla infringes Nikola’s patent,” the filing says.

A spokesperson for Tesla called the allegations meritless.

Nikola claims it has suffered damages of more than $2 billion by the alleged infringement, which it claims “has harmed Nikola’s plans by causing confusion in the market…The confusion has diverted sales from Nikola to Tesla.” Further, the suit claims, “Tesla’s infringement has harmed Nikola’s ability to attract investors and partners because investors can now partner with Tesla to have an alternative fuel semi-truck.”

When a spy photo of the Tesla Semi hit the Internet last year about a month ahead of its official debut, Nikola claims it sent a letter to Tesla notifying the company of Nikola’s pending patent applications, stating its belief that the electric Semi would infringe on those patents, “and demanded that Tesla refrain from unveiling its Semi,” the filing says.

The suit requests a jury trial.

Nikola debuted its Nikola One tractor in Salt Lake City in December 2016, almost a year before Tesla showcased its electric Semi in Hawthorne, Calif.

Wacker Neuson unveils DW60: Truck-like, dual-view dumper with rotating console could see U.S. release


Two years after the company first unveiled the concept of a mini dumper with a rotating console, Wacker Neuson says an updated version of this unique compact machine could be on its way to the U.S.

At the 2016 Bauma show, Wacker Neuson offered media and attendees the first look at the DW50 rotating console concept. The mini dumper allowed the operator to face either the load or what is typically the rear of the machine by rotating the entire console 180 degrees.

On the 5-ton capacity prototype DW50 shown at Bauma, a rotating assembly was loaded beneath the seat and allowed for rotation in just a few seconds. Once rotated, the dumper operates like a small dump truck and eliminates the need for the operator to turn the whole machine around in tight spaces.

At the Intermat show in Paris last week, Wacker Neuson was showcasing the same type of machine, now dubbed the DW60 and with a larger 6-ton capacity. Operators can move forward for driving, then rotate to the rear for loading, unloading and backing up, explained Stefan Kurzmann, dumper product manager.

“It has very compact dimensions, and one of the best benefits is its easier and intuitive operation,” he says.

Following the rotating console concept’s unveiling at Bauma, Kurzmann followed up by visiting dealers and customers to see what requirements they wanted in the new dumper. The company incorporated that feedback into the new design, he says.

The next steps are 9- and 10-ton dumpers in development next year, the company says.

Wacker Neuson plans on releasing the rotating DW60 in 2019 and is looking to introduce the model to North America “in the future,” the company says.

Terex ups 2018 outlook as all three machine units see sales increases in 1Q


The Genie GTH-844 telehandler now comes in with either a 74- or 99-horsepower engine.

Terex Corporation, makers of cranes and Genie brand aerial work platforms (AWP), has released its first quarter 2018 earnings and reports that it has seen the momentum it slowly amassed during 2017 carry over into the new year.

The company reported 1Q income from continuing operations of $47.6 million, or $0.59 per share, on sales of $1.3 billion. The quarter, in which all three of the company’s equipment units saw sales increases, represents a nearly 360-degree turnaround from the same quarter one year ago. The first quarter of 2017 saw nearly the same net sales figure at $1 billion, but Terex posted a loss of $60 million.

Terex president and CEO John Garrison said in light of 1Q performance, Terex has adjusted its expectations for 2018 upward from an earnings per share guidance of between $2.35 and $2.65, to between $2.70 and $3.00.

Terex’s largest unit, AWP, saw sales increase 35 percent over 1Q 2017 while income from operations nearly tripled from $21.7 million to $60.1 million.

Crane sales were also up, rising 19 percent to $314 million. Crane income rose from a loss of $31.9 million in 1Q 2017 to a loss of $9.7 million in 1Q 2018. Garrison said the crane division “performed below our expectations in the quarter.”

The Material Processing equipment unit saw sales increase 22 percent to $303.3 million. Income on the MP side rose 52 percent to $38.9 million.

“Terex significantly improved its first quarter earnings per share compared to last year,” Garrison said in a statement accompanying the earnings report. “This strong financial performance reflects the improvements made to our operations and capital structure, and broad-based improvements in our global markets.”

“We continue to invest in our Execute to Win business system, which remains focused on enhancing our capabilities in Commercial Excellence, Lifecycle Solutions and Strategic Sourcing” added Garrison. “We are seeing benefits from Commercial Excellence in our performance, and expect to start to realize benefits from Strategic Sourcing in the second half of 2018.

“We remain committed to our Disciplined Capital Allocation Strategy. During the quarter we repurchased approximately five million shares of Terex stock for $205 million through our previously announced program.”

Garrison said in light of 1Q performance, Terex has adjusted its expectations for 2018 upward from an earnings per share guidance of between $2.35 and $2.65, to between $2.70 and $3.00.

Drop in residential brings down U.S. construction spending 1.7%


Spending on construction in the United States fell 1.7 percent in March to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $1.284 trillion, according to data from the Commerce Department.

Despite the monthly drop, U.S. construction spending remained up 3.6 percent over the March 2017 rate.

The main contributor to the overall drop in spending was a 3.5-percent drop in spending on home construction. Spending among private home builders fell 3.5 percent to a rate of $536 billion in March. Spending on single-family home construction fell 0.4 percent to $283.5 billion, but remains up 9.7 percent over the year-ago rate. Spending on multi-family structures like apartments however fell for a third consecutive month, dipping 2.7 percent to a rate of $59 billion. Multi-family spending is now 8.2 percent below the March 2017 rate.

Total nonresidential spending also fell slightly during March, down 0.3 percent to a rate of $741 billion. Top percentage declines in nonresidential were water supply, down 4.5 percent to $12 billion; public safety, down 4.2 percent to $9 billion; and commercial, down 2.3 percent to $91 billion. Top percentage gains during the month were conservation and development, up 8.3 percent to $9 billion; religious, up 3.5 percent to $3 billion; and communication, up 1.6 percent to $24 billion.

Total construction spending from the private sector fell 2.1 percent to a rate of $987 billion, but remains up 4 percent year over year. Total government spending was flat in march at $297 billion and is 3 percent above the year ago rate.

Meet Chessie, the tunnel boring machine that will dig new tunnel under Chesapeake Bay

The new boring machine that will drill the mile-long hole for an expansion of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel (CBBT) has been named Chessie after the fabled sea monster that is said to live in Chesapeake Bay, The Virginian-Pilot reports.

The name was chosen from more than 120 names that were submitted by local sixth graders during an online contest to name the drill. The name Chessie was submitted by Grace Bentley of Nandua Middle School in Onley, Va.

“When the tunnel boring machine is digging into the ground, you can think of it like a sea monster,” Bentley said in her video submission.
‘Chessie’ will be printed on the machine and visible during the launching ceremony in 2019.

CBBT says the naming of the machine before beginning work is a sign of good luck for the project ahead.

Prep work for the $756 million tunnel has already begun on the island closest to Virginia Beach. Chessie will begin boring the tunnel there in 2019 and move northeast until it hits the second island.

The project is expected to finish in 2022.

Utah’s $450 million widening of Interstate 15 Tech Corridor begins


The I-15 Technology Corridor at Lehi, Utah, will be widened from four lanes to six in each direction.

Work is underway to widen the main artery in one of the fastest growing cities in the United States.

The area in and around Lehi, Utah, has undergone explosive growth since 2000. It has been dubbed “Silicon Slopes” as established and startup tech companies move to the area that is encompassed by Provo, Park City and Salt Lake City.

The widening of Interstate 15 from Lehi’s Main Street to State Route 92 has been named the state’s top road priority of 2018. On April 25, the governor and other dignitaries held a ceremonial groundbreaking for the expansion of the “I-15 Technology Corridor.” The project carries a $450 million price tag and a completion date of late 2020, according to the Utah Department of Transportation.

The stretch of freeway will be widened from four to six lanes in each direction. It is the last section of I-15 between Salt Lake City and Spanish Fork to be widened. The project also includes a new overpass at Triumph Boulevard and upgrades to the S.R. 92 and 2100 North interchanges, according to UDOT. Thirteen bridges will be replaced along the route, and bike-pedestrian paths will extend along new frontage roads.

The goal of the widened freeway is to relieve mounting traffic congestion in the area. Lehi has more than doubled in population to about 60,000 people since 2000 and is the fifth-fastest-growing city in the country, according to the city. Tech giants such as Microsoft, Adobe and eBay have a presence there, and a growing number of startups have flocked to the area.

“There has been a dynamic explosion of growth in this area of south Salt Lake City County,” Governor Gary Herbert said at the ground breaking.

He said projects like I-15 are needed to continue the growth and relieve congestion.

“We will have a hard time growing economically if we do not solve the problem of transportation,” he said.
