Logistics for the energy revolution: Why shipping has a vital role…

first_imgThe latest US example shows renewable energy is becoming more cost-efficient and that the cost of building new solar and wind plants is lower than running existing coal-fired power plants. Naturally, technical developments will continue, further strengthening the case for renewables. Why RoRo make sense for breakbulk cargo Historically, the difference in cost between renewable energy and fossil fuels has been too great to support a shift to green energy. But with new and innovative technology coming onto the market, we’re now seeing a big change. Renewable energy is necessary for a sustainable future – green partnerships between cargo owners and transportation providers will also help to make that future a reality. It’s widely reported that radical change is taking place in the energy sector. But why is maritime such a green logistics choice for the major players? Stefan Kjellström, vice president for breakbulk and pricing at Wallenius Wilhelmsen, investigates. China and India ramp up in renewables race This is forcing manufacturers and engineers to think about logistics in new ways – with dismantled transportation one option. This technologically superior and sensitive equipment needs to be carefully handled and transported using a limited number of lifts to avoid damage. The logistics challenges ahead will require experience, global reach, and local support, as well as tailored equipment to ensure efficient and secure transportation. (Source: Wallenius Wilhelmsen) (Image Courtesy: Wallenius Wilhelmsen) As industries focus on sustainable technology, they must also take into account responsible and sustainable transportation. Author: Baibhav Mishra Everyone knows that global trade and maritime transportation are fundamental to sustaining economic growth. But maritime transportation will also become indispensable when for maintaining a sustainable global economy. It’s the most environmentally-sound mode of mass transport, both in terms of energy efficiency and pollution prevention. By: Stefan Kjellström, Vice president for breakbulk and pricing at Wallenius Wilhelmsen A good example is Kamuthi – a single plant in India that powers more than 150,000 homes. Likewise, the Gansu wind farm in China is targeting a staggering 20 gigawatts capacity by 2020. In Europe, there are plans for offshore wind farms with a combined capacity of 100 gigawatts. Within the shipping industry, responsible shipping lines should strive to continuously minimise their environmental footprint through innovative technology and sophisticated engineering. Vessel design should mirror this. With digital transformation a key part of the fourth industrial revolution, big data is being used to track and control vessel performance, which should in turn lead to a lower CO2 footprint. These developments – in combination with technical innovations – mean that it’s only natural that some of the equipment for these projects is growing in size. Turbines are moving towards 1,000 tonnes in weight and some giant solar panels are now too big for transportation in containers. Around the globe, huge wind and solar energy farms are being built. China and India are at the forefront, competing to run the world’s largest renewable power plants. Sea News, August 13last_img read more

Has Rookie QB DeShone Kizer Earned the Right to Start the Preseason Opener for the Browns?

first_img Related TopicsBrownsCody KesslerDeShone Kizer Since 1999 it seems like a rite of passage during training camp for the Browns to be searching for a starting quarterback.This year is no different, with the competition between three very different players – Cody Kessler, Brock Osweiler, and rookie draft pick DeShone Kizer. Many assume that due to his experience from a year ago as a rookie that Kessler would be the choice to get the first crack at being a starter, but indications are coming in that seem to be minds are changing in Berea.That is as of now, rookie draft pick Kizer is quickly moving up the ladder, and Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com writes that it looks like the former Notre Dame QB could be the man come the preseason opener in a week.DeShone Kizer has won the first week of training camp, and has moved closer to being named the starter for the preseason opener.On Thursday, he dazzled the training camp crowd with a 28-yard third-down pass to James Wright down the left sideline in his two-minute drill, and took another big step toward getting the nod next Thursday against the Saints.The perfectly placed ball, with Najee Murray in tight coverage, moved the offense to the 15, and set up a would-be field goal. Both Kessler and Osweiler were not quite as impressive, as they both threw interceptions in the two-minute drill on Thursday, something that could not sit well with coach Hue Jackson, who says that Kizer has been playing well in his short time in camp.“Those are the plays that quarterbacks have to make, and he made it,” Jackson said of Kizer.How important would it be for the Browns to finally have their man at quarterback? It’s really something they have been looking for since their return to the NFL, and having someone like Kizer entrenched as the starter would be a huge step in the right direction.

Indians Pull Out Extra Inning 5-4 Win in the Windy City to Move to 10-7

first_img Related TopicsCarlos SantanaDelino DeShieds Jr.featured NEOSI Staff By Jared EdwardsTonight we had bonus baseball in Chicago as the Indians took down the White Sox 5-4 to move to 10-7 on the season.Shane Bieber was not as steady in his fourth start as he had been the previous three. Bieber pitched six innings allowing four hits and three earned runs. He matched his third start total with eight strikeouts but allowed two home runs and walked two batters. Bieber definitely pitched well enough to win this game and with some earlier run support, he would have.Chicago’s DH Jose Abreu started the scoring off with a deep home run to left field in the bottom of the second inning off Cleveland ace Bieber. The Indians answered back when Mike Freeman doubled to lead off the top of the third. Sandy Leon followed with a walk. Freeman was driven in with an RBI double from the second baseman Cesar Hernandez tying the game at 1-1 and sending Leon to third base. Jose Ramirez would rip a single to right field bringing home Leon and giving the Tribe a 2-1 lead.The White Sox would plate two in the bottom of the sixth with a home run from catcher James McCann and a double from Yasmani Grandal that drove in Yoan Moncada giving the Sox a 3-2 lead.Cleveland would bring on my favorite reliever, the young fireballer, James Karinchak who was able to hold Chicago in the bottom of the seventh. Karinchak has an extremely impressive curveball that is borderline unhittable along with a 97 mph fastball. He is going to be a huge part of the Tribe bullpen for years to come.The Indians would finally tie the game when Carlos Santana drew a two out walk in the top of the eighth and than Franmil Reyes smashed a double that split the left and center fielder allowing Santana to score all the way from first, tying the game at 3-3.The new extra innings rule, which allows each team to start the inning with a runner on second base, played a large roll in helping the Indians score in their half of the 10th. Ramirez started the inning on second and after a Francisco Lindor fly out to center. Santana was able to move Ramirez to third and reach on an infield single. Delino DeShields Jr. would execute a perfect bunt to bring Ramirez home to score and also reach base. Domingo Santana would ground into what should have been an inning ending double play but Deshields ran hard into second and was able to affect the throw allowing Domingo Santana to reach safely. Freeman would bring home Carlos Santana with a sharp single to center giving the Indians a 5-3 lead.Indians closer Brad Hand came on in the bottom of the tenth as heavy rains began to fall in Chicago. Hand would get Luis Robert to hit a deep fly to left but it allowed Nomar Mazara to move up to third base.White Sox catcher McCann hit a bloop single to center that should have been caught by Bradley Zimmer but he took a step back when the ball was hit instead of charging in on it. This allowed Mazara to score from third and make it a one run game at 5-4. Hand would walk Chicago’s nine hitter Danny Mendick right before the grounds crew brought the tarp out as the umpires called for a rain delay. After a short 44 minute delay, Indians wily old veteran Oliver Perez came out to face Leury Garcia and got him to pop out on the first pitch. Perez then battled to strikeout Moncado to end the ballgame and get the series win for the Tribe.last_img read more
