Lloyd’s Register to work on human-machine interface for Hywind Tampen’s control room

first_imgThe Hywind Tampen control room is co-located with the OCR for Valemon, Equinor’s unmanned platform with separation facilities for gas, condensate and water. Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Industry approved Equinor’s plans for development and operation of the Hywind Tampen project in April. Lloyd’s Register has been contracted for Human-Machine Interface (HMI) engineering services for the control room from which the Hywind Tampen floating wind farm will be remotely operated. The project is scheduled to come online in late 2022. Wood’s scope includes topside modifications necessary for the Snorre A and Gullfaks A platforms to integrate the Hywind Tampen with existing systems powering the facilities, equipment installation on the floating wind turbines, and upgrades to the OCR in Bergen. Hywind Tampen will comprise eleven Siemens Gamesa SG 8.0-167 DD wind turbines, installed some 140 kilometres off Norwegian coast, in water depths ranging from 260 to 300 between the Snorre and Gullfaks oil and gas platforms. center_img The company will provide consultancy design services for integration into the onshore control room (OCR) for the Hywind Tampen floating wind farm in Norway, as well as human factor analysis for the new OCR and existing OCRs for four platforms. “The work we are undertaking, providing design consultancy for the existing OCR and human factor analysis, will help support Equinor’s wider decarbonisation agenda. By developing unmanned solutions for power generation, the industry can start to make some real cost savings”, said Tristan Chapman, SVP Clean Energy and Innovation at Lloyd’s Register. The almost EUR 500 million project is the first to power oil & gas platforms by a floating wind farm. The services Lloyd’s Register will provide for Hywind Tampen control room are part of an integrated scope Equinor awarded to Wood.last_img read more

Redknapp: Bale would shine at Real

first_img “He has been consistent over a period of about four seasons so he has proved he can do it regularly, every year. “He has got everything, he can do the whole lot – he can dribble, he can shoot with both feet, can head it, run all day, run at speed. There is nothing he can’t do. He is an amazing player.” One man hoping Bale remains at Spurs is Roberto Soldado, who is close to completing his big-money move to White Hart Lane from Valencia. Speaking to reporters at Valencia airport before boarding a flight to London to undergo his medical, the 28-year-old was quoted as saying by Spanish newspaper AS: “Bale is a great footballer and you can see the effort Tottenham are making to prevent him from leaving. Of course I want him to stay.” The 24-year-old enjoyed a remarkable season with the north Londoners in 2012/13, bringing him to the attention of the Spanish giants. Madrid are reportedly willing to better the world record fee of £80million they shelled out on Cristiano Ronaldo four years ago, with Bale thought to be keen on a switch to the Bernabeu. Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes Gareth Bale would flourish at Real Madrid as talks over a potential transfer continue. Tottenham did not wish to comment on the speculation when contacted by Press Association Sport and Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti was also coy when asked about the Welshman. “We will see what happens,” the Italian said. “It is between the two clubs. Right now our team is very strong and we will have to see what happens in the future.” There are clearly hurdles to overcome but, should Bale make the move to Los Blancos, former Spurs boss Redknapp believes the winger would shine in the Spanish capital. “He is behind Messi and Ronaldo in terms of being the best player in the world,” said Redknapp, who coached Bale for four years. “He is at a good club but the opportunity to play for Real Madrid does not come along too often. He has probably dreamt about that since he was a little boy. “It seems they have offered fantastic money so it could happen, but I don’t know. I wouldn’t be sure. If he goes there, he will be a great success there. I am sure of that. Redknapp, now manager of SkyBet Championship promotion hopefuls QPR, helped transform Bale into the player he is today. Originally a left-back with Southampton, Redknapp pushed him further forward and was at the helm when he won the Professional Footballers Association Player of the Year award for the first time in 2011, a feat he repeated last season. “He has been playing like that for three or four years,” he said. “I think it was three years ago that he was Player of the Year the first time.

The 34-year-old joined the Clarets last summer but has made just seven appearances for the recently-relegated Barclays Premier League club.

I’m working towards my ‘A’ licence and look forward to pursuing a career in coaching, alongside continuing the media work I’ve enjoyed this season. “I would like to thank everybody that has been a part of the journey: My family, especially, but also the fans, players, staff, managers and friends that have made it a truly wonderful 17 years.” last_img read more

Max Browne changes QB battle

first_img“In the Zone” runs every other Friday. If you would like to comment on this story, visit DailyTrojan.com or email Trevor at trevor.wong@usc.edu The quarterback situation at USC just got a little bit more interesting.On Wednesday night, quarterback Max Browne of Skyline High School in Sammamish, Wash., verbally committed to USC, after a three-day unofficial visit to campus. According to Rivals.com, Browne is the No. 1 overall prospect at his position in the 2013 class.The 6-foot-5, 210-pound prep star threw for 4,045 yards and 45 touchdowns during his junior season. In two years starting at Skyline, the quarterback has thrown for 8,216 passing yards and 95 touchdowns.Browne’s verbal commitment gives the USC coaching staff multiple options for senior Matt Barkley’s successor.According to Mason Kelley of The Seattle Times, Browne is working on graduating high school early, too, so he can enroll at USC during the next spring semester — a similar route Barkley, Cody Kessler and Max Wittek decided to take.This spring, redshirt freshmen quarterbacks Kessler and Wittek have seen extended snaps behind center. The two have been competing for the backup role on the depth chart behind Barkley. Both are also auditioning for an eventual starting role next year. Now it’s likely a three-man race.And in case anybody forgot: Redshirt sophomore quarterback Jesse Scroggins is still at USC. Remember just a couple years ago, Scroggins was supposed to be the next great player? According to Rivals.com, Scroggins was the No. 5 prospect at his position — a dual-threat quarterback with a laser arm and a nice set of wheels.Does Browne’s commitment  mean the end of Scroggins’ time at USC? With sanctions limiting the Trojans to 75 scholarship players until 2015, can they afford to carry four quarterbacks on their roster?Probably not.It’s really unfortunate, too. Call it bad luck or misfortune, but he’s dealt with numerous injuries that have slowed his progress as a player. Now he’s trying to work his way back in the classroom as well. He’s been excused from spring practice so he can focus his efforts in the classroom to gain eligibility for the fall.“I will be eligible in the fall, there is no question about that,” Scroggins told ESPNLosAngeles.com in February. “I will be practicing in the spring and I will still be here in the fall, no doubt about it.”But his inability to stay healthy, coupled with his academic issues, isn’t a positive sign. There’s been more hype than show for the four-star prospect out of Lakewood High. And to the coaching staff, it’s not exactly encouraging to see a promising guy like Scroggins miss practice to bring up his grades just so he can step foot on the field. No longer does Scroggins have that so-called extra experience.Even last fall while Scroggins was recovering from surgery on his throwing hand, it seemed as if Kessler and Wittek leapfrogged the Lakewood native on the depth chart. With both of them enrolling early last spring, it certainly has helped familiarize them with the system and coaching staff.Again, with Browne verbally committing, the Trojans will have the No. 1 prospect at his position in the class of 2013 and have two other capable players in Kessler and Wittek, who are ranked No. 2 and No. 3 at their positions in the class of 2011, according to                  Rivals.com.Yes, the starting job isn’t guaranteed to any of those three, either. But with Kessler and Wittek gaining more experience this spring and Browne with the potential to be a star, Scroggins is likely the odd man out.With the limited amount of scholarship players USC can carry on its roster over the next couple years, it just doesn’t make sense to carry four quarterbacks.Come next year, not only does the coaching staff have to figure out who will be the heir apparent to Barkley, but they’ll also have to figure out what they want to do with Scroggins.last_img read more

first_imgFinal Phase in semisFemale basketball star, Nkechi Akashili, would have ended up lacing the boots for a top football club in the country or somewhere else in Europe.But her love for the dunking game won her over from the wish of her father.Nkechi’s father had wanted the player currently making waves at the ongoing Zenith Bank Women Basketball League to play soccer but her passion for basketball did not allow her. Beautiful Nkechi started going to basketball courts by following her elder sister, Sunnychi Akashili who played the game years back in the ancient city of Warri.“I started playing the game in 2009 at Warri at the secondary school level, but did not get the approval of my father who wanted me to be a footballer.“But when we won the All Nigeria Secondary School Milo title and came back home with cartons of Milo drinks and the ticket to represent the country at the World Secondary Championship in Argentina, my father changed his mind started supporting me,” she revealed.On her return from South America, Akashili moved to Asaba to join the Delta State basketball team, Delta Force.She hardly played two seasons at Delta Force before the prying eyes of scouts from First Deepwater caught up with her and she moved to Lagos.She won the Zenith Bank Most Valuable Player (MVP) award with Deepwater at her first outing before First Bank came for her signature.The University of Lagos graduate says she is not in a hurry to be a mother.Nkechi said she would be looking forward to win her sixth Zenith Bank Women Basketball League title this weekend in Lagos.“I have won it five times in the past and will be gunning for the sixth this weekend,” Nkechi who is aspiring to go abroad soon to continue with her exploits in the game said.Meanwhile, the ongoing final phase of the 2017 Zenith Basketball League enters crucial stage today as finalists are expected to emerge after the semifinal matches this evening.RESULTSFirst Bank 83-40 GT 2000Dolphins 69-64 PlateauIGP Queens 61-60 Delta ForceShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
