Another Location for Balmoral

Balmoral has announced they will begin new operations in Sofia, Bulgaria. Among other agreements, Balmoral has signed a 25 year agreement with Apex (http://www.apexexperts.com/) to develop technical permissions, deploy EPC contractors and operate Solar facilities in Bulgaria. The new location is situated 12.5kms away from the International airport and within few hours of the Solar sites.

The St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral (Bulgarian: Храм-паметник „Свети Александър Невски“, Hram-pametnik „Sveti Aleksandar Nevski“) is a Bulgarian Orthodox cathedral in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. Built in Neo-Byzantine style, it serves as the cathedral church of the Patriarch of Bulgaria and is one of the largest Eastern Orthodox cathedrals in the world.

Cote d'Ivorie

During the sixteenth century, European ivory traders visited the coast of West Africa. They named part of that region the Ivory Coast. For a time, other regions in West Africa were called the Gold Coast, the Grain Coast, and the Slave Coast. When the Ivory Coast gained its independence from France in 1960, it was the only one of these territories to keep its old name.
Cote-d'Ivoire (French call it ), is about the size of New Mexico. It has a 320-mile shoreline on the Gulf of Guinea. About 40 percent of the country is covered by rain forests. The rest of the country is woodlands, grassy plains, and mountains.

Today, the Ivory Coast is the richest country in West Africa. The nation's 8 million people earn one of the highest wages in Africa. The Ivory Coast's wealth comes from minerals, oil, and many agricultural products, especially coffee. Ivory Coast now accounts for more than 8 percent of the world's coffee! The only nations that produce more coffee are Brazil and Colombia.
