LONDON Authentic Chris Kunitz Jersey , Feb. 18 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese-owned London Taxi Company has been given the go-ahead to build a new 300 million U.S. dollars British headquarters and production factory on Wednesday.

The development is described as being a state of the art facility for research, development and assembly of high technology electric vehicles, including the next generation of London taxi.

The site, In Rugby, will be the London Taxi Company's new headquarters and will include a substantial research and development department, supply chain team, global sales and marketing and administrative functions necessary to support the assembly operations of the new vehicles.

Two years ago London Taxi Company became part of the Zhejiang Geely Holding Group.

The company says it intends to invest in the new site to help develop advanced green taxi technology over the next five years with the aim of launching a zero-emission electric powered London taxi by 2018.

The London Taxi Company is already the leading global manufacturer and retailer of the purpose-built London Taxis, now an international icon.

The company has two manufacturing plants, one in Coventry - the city where the iconic Fairway London Taxi was born - and one in Shanghai, which produces vehicles for export markets, the company said on its website.

The move to Rugby will mean the company quitting its long-established Coventry base - just 21 kilometers from Coventry - but the company views the new factory as part of a five-year investment plan, creating an initial 550 jobs with scope for future expansion that could potentially lead up to the creation of 1,000 jobs.

It is anticipated that approximately 12,000 of the specialist vehicles will be produced based each year on a single shift system.

Business leaders and local politicians welcomed the move and hailed it as a significant step forward in realising the area's strategy economic plan for creating growth in the advanced manufacturing sector.

Cllr Carolyn Robbins, chair of Rugby Council's Planning Committee said on Tuesday the committee gave their unanimous backing to the project.

""We are delighted the London Taxi Company has chosen Rugby as its new location. We hope it will attract other innovative businesses to our borough,"" she told Xinhua.

Some kayaks can actually house up to three paddlers, depending on what kind of material the kayak was built with. And they vary according to prices. The kayaks made from plastics are mainly the most affordable, as they range from $300 to $2000 and the ones built from Kevlar, are more lighter and yet stronger than the other Kayak materials. It is thus the most costly kind of kayak, with a cost price of $4500. There are various kinds of kayaks depending on the environment they are to be utilized. So are surf kayaks, others sea kayaks, racing kayaks and whitewater kayaks. The hybrid ones are referred to as recreational kayaks.
Kayaks are designed quite differently, and also vary in shapes and sizes, as well as different materials used. Sea kayaks for example are built to have more lengthy bodies. That way, they can cover more distance. The whitewater kayaks on the other hand, are built with high-impact plastics. This is so that they can easily bump into and bounce off rocks in rapids, without much damage to its body. Sit on top kayaks are arguably the most popular kayaks best suitable for rookies. This is because they are mainly stable. And can easily be used for fishing and fun paddling.
Kayaks are made with either fibreglass or rotomolded plastics so as to give it a light weight, as well as a low-maintenance form and further enhance its durability. The more greater width a kayak has, the more greater length of paddle it will require. It is also easier to use sit on top kayaks as they have broader beams, and will ensure sitting stability for the kayaker.
There is a clear difference between canoeing and kayaking. And this difference is in the paddle used. Canoe’s paddles are single-bladed, while that of kayaks are double-bladed. Depending on your body build, and the size of the kayak, you will have to make preferences. For wider kayaks, you will need a taller paddle.
If you are smallish or pint-sized in nature, using a lighter paddle will do you a whole world of good. It is also very important that you don’t stretch yourself beyond your capacity. Note that the blades of the paddles vary. The wider blades give you more push or acceleration but gives a lot of water resistance. The narrow blades requires less effort due to less resistance, but more requires more strokes.
In order to stay safe, one has to get a personal floatation device eg a life jacket, even if you are kayaking on still waters. Getting the U.S Coast Guard Type III kind of PFD is the best option especially when kayaking. This is because it is usually comfy and light.
