CHANGZHOU, Tiongkok, 14 September 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Trina Solar Limited ("Trina Solar" atau "perusahaan"), penyedia solusi lengkap dan terkemuka untuk energi surya, telah menerima peringkat terbaik dalam laporan tentang aspek kelayakan menerima fasilitas perbankan (bankability) di kalangan produsen modul listrik. Laporan ini diterbitkan oleh Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF). Dengan terbitnya laporan terbaru ini, Trina Solar kini menjadi satu-satunya produsen modul listik yang dinilai sepenuhnya bankable sebanyak tiga kali berturut-turut oleh 100% pakar industri yang berpartisipasi dalam survei BNEF.

Ketika menilai aspek bankability dari produsen PV, bank berfokus pada kesehatan keuangan perusahaan; rekam jejak kinerja modul di lapangan; dan jaminan mutu dari produsen, menurut peserta survei. Dalam survei ini, Bloomberg NEF melibatkan pelaku perbankan, pengelola dana investasi, EPC, produsen listrik swasta (IPP) dan penasihat teknis di seluruh dunia. Para ahli ini mewakili kapasitas PV terpasang 29GW secara global. BNEF juga mengadakan serangkaian wawancara mendalam dengan pengawas kualitas dan penasihat teknis guna melengkapi survei.

Rongfang Yin, Executive Vice President, Trina Solar, berkomentar: "Kami sangat bangga dengan hasil luar biasa yang sekali lagi dicapai Trina Solar dalam laporan industri yang terkenal ini. Fakta bahwa kami tetap memegang posisi teratas selama tiga tahun berturut-turut bukanlah kebetulan, melainkan cerminan situasi keuangan yang kuat dan catatan kualitas produk yang sehat. Kedua aspek ini dihargai oleh pelaku perbankan dan investor di seluruh dunia yang sangat terlibat dalam pembiayaan proyek." Yin menambahkan, "Penghargaan yang tidak bias ini dapat memberikan jaminan tambahan bagi perusahaan yang mencari mitra andal untuk jangka panjang di tengah situasi industri yang serba tidak pasti dan memaksa para pemain yang lebih rapuh keluar dari pasar."

Dalam catatan tersebut, Trina Solar menjadi "Top Performer" di antara produsen modul dunia untuk keempat kalinya sejak 2014.

Moxy Times Square Named Development Of The Year By ALIS, The American Lodging Investment Summit



NEW YORK, Jan. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Americas Lodging Investment Summit (ALIS), has named Moxy Times Square as Development of the Year Select/Limited Service hotel for 2017. The winners were announced today during the ALIS conference at the JW Marriott and Microsoft Theater at L.A. LIVE. Nominees for the awards are evaluated based on outstanding business performance in various industry sectors.

Produced by Northstar Travel Group, in association with the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) and Burba Hotel Network (BHN), the ALIS conference brings together the lodging industry's leading hotel executives, investors, lenders, developers, and professional advisory community.

The September 2017 opening of Moxy Times Square represented a disruptive shift in scale for New York City hotels. Lightstone, the developer, transformed a historic building into a dynamic, design-driven hotel with 612 bedrooms and over 22,000 square feet of food, beverage and event space.

To execute Lightstone's vision for Moxy, a large hotel that's not a homogenized experience, the developer enlisted a star team of collaborators: Yabu Pushelberg for interior design, TAO Group to cultivate the food and beverage program and Rockwell Group to design the restaurants and bars. Franchised by Marriott International and managed by Magna Hospitality, Moxy elevates the select service experience with cleverly designed bedrooms, a buzzing atmosphere, flexible co-working spaces, electrifying dining and drinking experiences and cultural programming.

Five dining destinations by TAO Group culminate in Magic Hour, NYC's largest indoor / outdoor all-season hotel rooftop bar and lounge. Additional venues include: Legasea, a seafood brasserie, Bar Moxy, the social heart of the hotel, The Pickup, a twist on the traditional grab-and-go and Egghead, an egg-centric all-day breakfast spot.

Given Moxy's location at 485 7th Avenue, the hotel serves as a unique social anchor for the neighborhood with property programming: nightly DJ sets, local artist collaborations and personalized pop-up shops. Moxy offers a 24-hour fitness center and complimentary, weekly fitness classes for guests and locals as part of its #SweatAtMoxy series.

With an innovative design and a playful soul at rates that make it accessible to all, Moxy creates a new paradigm for the modern traveler.

Marriott International Debuts Le Méridien and AC Hotels by Marriott in Denver 

With the Highest Open-Air Rooftop Bar in Denver, the Dual-Branded Hotel Complex Brings an Elevated Approach to Design and Dining in the Mile High City

BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Marriott International, Inc. today announced the anticipated opening of the dual-branded hotel development in downtown Denver, bringing two lauded European-inspired brands to the city: Le Méridien and AC Hotels by Marriott. The 20-story development features a 272-room Le Méridien Hotel and a 223-room AC Hotel by Marriott, owned and managed by White Lodging Services Corporation.

"We're really excited to be a part of this dual-branded property opening with Le Méridien, which represents the bringing together of two great European-rooted brands under one roof," said Benoit Racle, Senior Global Brand Director, AC Hotels by Marriott. "The carefully edited, high-style experience that you get at an AC Hotel is perfect for the modern business traveler looking for frictionless, uncomplicated service, and Denver's burgeoning entrepreneurial scene made the city a perfect fit for us."

The AC Hotel by Marriott Denver Downtown is the lifestyle brand's first property to open in Denver. Introduced to the U.S. in 2014, the AC Hotel by Marriott brand originated in Europe in 2011 as a joint venture with Spanish hotelier, Antonio Catalan, and now offers a portfolio of over 100 hotels in countries across Europe, Latin America and North America. Inspired by classic European design, the brand is perfectly suited for the modern business traveler, featuring simple, clean and crisp lines that create a feeling of harmony and inspire creativity.

Led by the Simeone Deary Design Group, the Denver hotel infuses the parts and pieces that make up a typical AC experience and meld them into the local landscape of the city. Based around the concept of the "Urban Pioneer", the space is designed to feel like a modern ski lodge, with peaked roofs, strong lines, geometric language, bold interior gestures. The materials for the public spaces are indigenous to Denver and inspired by the surrounding nature to include warm woods, honed and chiseled stone, textural wall finishes and unique millwork details.

"We are delighted to expand our partnership with White Lodging to introduce Le Méridien brand to Denver," said Brian Povinelli, SVP and Global Brand Leader, Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts. "We have made significant investments to develop the brand, which connects with guests through the art, culture and cuisine in key cities around the world.  We think these passion points are sure to resonate with Denver visitors and local residents alike."

Also led by the Simeone Deary Design Group, Le Méridien Denver Downtown takes shape with the clean lines of mid-century modern design. The interiors feature a cool and refreshing color palette complementing unique millwork concepts, reminiscent of the intricate craftsmanship of snowboards and skis.  The hotel immediately creates a sense of arrival with one-of-a-kind artwork installations, constructed with vintage pieces reassembled into contemporary sculptural art - reimagining the intricate and rhythmic nature of a snowflake.   The brand's signature Le Méridien Hub re-interprets the traditional lobby as a social gathering place that brings coffee culture to life during the day and sparkling cocktails during the evening.  Each of the 272 guestrooms and suites are thoughtfully-designed with a cool grey color palette with striking and surprising accent color combinations reminiscent of blue skies, green aspens, sunset orange and crimson.

Le Méridien will offer more than 12,000 square-feet of state-of-the-art event space including a 5,700-square-foot ballroom, as well as meeting rooms brightened through floor-to-ceiling windows. The properties feature more than 30 pieces of artwork curated by Denver-based firm, NINE dot ARTS, and created by local artists inspired by the property's European influence and the Rocky Mountains.

Opening in tandem with the hotels are Denver's buzziest new drinking and dining venues. 54thirty, the city's highest open-air, seasonal rooftop bar, offers unparalleled views of the city and the Rocky Mountains. Corinne, a dining and cocktail spot serving classic, simple American comfort food with an emphasis on locally-sourced ingredients will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner service. The Lobbyist, Le Méridien's sparkling cocktail lounge, opens in the hotel's mid-century modern-designed social space.

Further bringing Denver's dynamic culture to global travelers, the hotel has tapped local partners for guest experiences and special packages, including Clyfford Still Museum, the Real Dill, Bee Squared Apeiaries, Renegade Brewery, Colorado Cider Company, Laws Whiskey House, and The Infinite Monkey Theorem Urban Winery. "We've thoroughly explored the city to find exceptional partnerships which highlight Denver's unique personality," said Paul Eckert, General Manager. "We are excited to truly immerse visitors into the local culture."

Le Méridien Denver Downtown and AC Hotel by Marriott Denver Downtown is located at the center of the city's business district at 15th and California, one block from the Colorado Convention Center. The hotels are steps away from Denver's 16th Street entertainment promenade, and five blocks from the Colorado State Capital building and the city's arts and culture district.  Also nearby are leading attractions including the LoDo Historic District, the Denver Performing Arts Complex, and sports venues such as Pepsi Center, Coors Field and Sports Authority Field at Mile High – home of the NFL's Denver Broncos.
