The $3.5 Million 4000-hp Super Yacht Tecnomar for LAMBORGHINI 63 has just made port in Maltese waters and many avid fans are stoked about its appearance on our little island.

Each of these yachts has a length of 63 feet and they are powered by twin MAN 24-liter V12 engines for a total output of 3,945 horsepower. Founded in 1987 and acquired by the Italian Sea Group in 2009, Tecnomar has launched 289 yachts through the years, also thanks to the Tecnomar Evo line, which has earned great success in the Asian market.

One such boat is owned by MMA superstar Conor McGregor, who recently took the yacht out so he could enjoy the Monaco Grand Prix to the full extent. 

In images posted to his Instagram, McGregor and his family could be seen enjoying the vessel’s many features. The yacht is inspired by the rare Lamborghini Sian FKP 37, which was a limited production hybrid supercar.

WATCH: Malta may have a SERIOUS hornet problem but here’s why you shouldn’t worry

WATCH: Malta may have a SERIOUS hornet problem but here's why you shouldn't worry
Jun 8 2022 Share

Malta has recently seen an dramatic increase in the hornet species ‘Vespa Orientalis’, which in Maltese is known as ‘Bagħal taż-Żunżan’ and in our latest interview, Arnold Sciberras breaks down this species’ effect on local biodiversity and how it is handled by The Exterminator.

Sciberras highlighted that the difference in these hornets, which are hymenoptera, is that as a species they are aggressive, new additions the Maltese ecosystem and dangerous to both humans and biodiversity around them. Such hornets are also significantly affecting apiculture, which is the cultivation of bees.

The man behind The Exterminator brand revealed that hornets are considered pests because they have a tendency of living in man-made structures whilst also opportunistically consuming human waste such as cat food, litter and others. Additionally, due to the hornets’ aggressive nature, a human entering their area is very much at risk of being attacked.

Hornets are dangerous due to their desire to protect their nourishment and hive. The sting is dangerous and fairly potent compared to stings from others bees and wasps and its effect depends on the vulnerability of the person on the receiving end. Sciberras held that children and elderly individuals are most vulnerable, with certain cases of hornet stings leading to hospitalisations or worse.

Due to hornets seeking man-made structures like Malta’s Ħajt tas-Sejjieħ, brick-wall blocks, air conditioning vents and more. Small colonies often go unnoticed but they may grow to extents where individuals become “prisoners in their own homes”, Sciberras stated before recalling a case where they had to exterminate the nest to allow individuals to leave their homes. Oftentimes, hornets nests are exterminated via a vast range of methodologies and machinery and conducted by industry professionals.

Have you seen a hornets’ nest recently?

The E-RIHS Malta National Node will consist of the Ministry for the National Heritage, the Arts and Local Government, the Superintendence of Cultural Heritage, Heritage Malta, the Restoration Directorate, the National Archives, Malta Libraries, nine University of Malta departments and faculties, the St John’s Co-Cathedral Foundation, and the Archdiocese of Malta.

Minister Bonnici stated that, “This agreement is an important step in paving the way for full collaboration in heritage and research in a European framework set up to strengthen and expand the use of science in the field of heritage.” The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry for the National Heritage, the Arts, and Local Government Joyce Dimech explained the work done by Maltese heritage entities which did not only collaborate together, but with the University of Malta they reached a formal agreement for the benefit of our national heritage. The permanent secretary also mentioned how partnerships in Research Infrastructure such as E-RIHS would continue to strengthen our collaboration at European level.

This pan-European research infrastructure supports research on heritage science, which encompasses interpretation, preservation, documentation, and management of heritage, with a mission to deliver access to heritage researchers on high-level expertise, data, laboratories, equipment, and facilities. The goal is to integrate world-leading European facilities into an organisation with a leading role within the global heritage science sector, drawing together a cross-disciplinary community of researchers and users, supporting advancements in heritage science through networking, innovation, training, and education.

The E-RIHS consortium thus promotes good practice in heritage research. It develops or advances methods designed to respond to the specific needs of cultural heritage assets, whether material or digital: objects, collections, buildings, and sites.
