SEALNG Voices Strong Support for MEPC 73 Outcomes

first_img(Image Courtesy: SEA\LNG) SEA\LNG, the multi-sector industry coalition aiming to accelerate the widespread adoption of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel, strongly supports the decision of the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) to reaffirm the January 1, 2020 implementation date of the 0.50% sulphur fuel limit. SEA\LNG also applauds the adoption of the amendment to MARPOL Annex VI for a carriage ban on non-compliant fuels for vessels without an approved equivalent arrangement to meet the sulphur limit – such as an exhaust gas cleaning system (EGCS) on March 1, 2020.SEA\LNG chairman and executive vice president of TOTE Inc., Peter Keller commented: “We believe both actions provide greater certainty to ship owners considering new build and retrofit investment options in compliant marine fuelling solutions such as LNG. This sends a strong message to the whole maritime industry, including fuel suppliers to be prepared to deliver compliant marine fuels.”SEA\LNG also highlighted the central role of LNG, not only in complying with the 2020 global sulphur cap, but for its potential to help achieve the IMO’s target for a 40% reduction in carbon intensity by 2030 – a sentiment supported by major flag states and ship owner organisations at MEPC 73 – and total emissions by at least 50% by 2050.LNG far outperforms conventional marine fuels in terms of minimising harmful air emissions and can significantly reduce GHG emissions. LNG emits zero sulphur oxides (SOx) and virtually zero particulate matter (PM). Compared to existing heavy marine fuel oils, LNG emits 90% less nitrogen oxides (NOx). The importance of improving air quality from a public health standpoint is clear and LNG’s performance in this regard is unrivalled. Through the use of best practices and appropriate technologies to minimise methane leakage, realistic reductions of GHG by 10-20% compared with conventional fuels can be achieved.Keller said: “Improvements in marine propulsion systems continue to advance apace, with today’s engines already significantly ahead of previous years’ technologies. It is expected that these improvements will continue as OEMs concentrate on accelerating emissions performance. In combination with efficiency measures being developed for new ships in response to the IMO’s Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI), LNG provides a viable and effective means of achieving the IMO’s target for a 40% reduction in carbon intensity by 2030, as well as longer term goals.”LNG provides the shipping industry with the opportunity for a safe and scalable fuel to meet global marine energy demands. Bulk supply infrastructure for LNG already exists along the main shipping lanes today and LNG bunkering capacity is growing rapidly with at least 23 bunker vessels expected to be in service by 2020.“Meeting the ambitious emissions targets set by the IMO requires unified action from the entire shipping industry, including ship owners, the supply chain, scientists, engineers and analysts,” concluded Keller. “Academic studies and other discussions that criticise the effectiveness of proven alternative fuelling solutions such as LNG, but stop short of offering realistic alternatives, will only detract from genuine efforts to reach the IMO’s goals.”Sea News, November 5 Author: Baibhav Mishralast_img read more

Wilkins: Luiz deserved to be dropped

first_img Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook Embed from Getty ImagesRay Wilkins has insisted Antonio Conte was right to drop David Luiz against Manchester United.Blues boss Conte brought in Andreas Christensen for the game at Stamford Bridge and did not even include Luiz among the substitutes.AdChoices广告Luiz attracted criticism in the wake of last week’s Champions League loss to Roma and Wilkins believes the Brazilian should play in midfield rather than at centre-back.Speaking on Sky Sports News, former Chelsea player, coach and assistant boss Wilkins said Luiz deserved to be dropped.“He’s not been playing well. He’s lackadaisical as a defender. I think he’s a very good midfield player,” Wilkins said.“Christensen came in and played very well indeed in a massive game. How many times do you see Christensen in advance of the ball? You don’t, because he thinks defensively.“With Luiz, you see him in advance of the ball on numerous occasions in every game he plays and consequently we suffer defensively.“I thought the decision to drop Luiz was the right decision. He didn’t look anywhere near it against Roma. That was a poor performance.”Meanwhile, Conte has made it clear he is prepared to drop other players if he believes they are under-performing.

Bayern raged in a head show

first_imgThe German champion Bayern (Munich) kept its lead of four points at the top of the Budnesliga.The Bavarians beat Eintracht (Frankfurt) 5-2 in the second round after the renewal of the Bundesliga and a total of 27 since the beginning of the season.Thus, Bayern took another step in the pursuit of the country’s record eighth consecutive title. And perhaps one of the decisive matches for this goal will take place on Tuesday, when the Bavarians visit their direct rival Borussia (Dortmund).Today, in front of the empty and gloomy stands of “Allianz Arena”, which was heard only by the shouts of the players, the two teams played a great match.Naturally, he completely passed under the dominance of the hosts, and this dominance was most noticeable in the first part. In it, Bayern did not stop attacking the door of the guests from Frankfurt and scored two goals, and the goals could have been more.Leon Gorecka opened after a pass from Thomas Mueller in the 17th minute, and at the end of the half Mueller was in the right place to intercept a pass from Alfonso Davis.In the first seconds of the second half came the moment of the usual suspect – Robert Lewandowski. With a good plunge, the Pole scored his goal №41 during the season, and with a score of 3-0 everything seemed to be resolved.last_img read more

Watford player explains why loan went terribly wrong – Reveals Pearson…

first_imgFirst, however, there was the matter of getting his work permit, which he now has, thanks to his 16 caps for Venezuela and a bunch of loans, and there was hope he could finally establish himself at Vicarage Road three years after his arrival.However, a move to Eupen in Belgium was arranged late on in the summer transfer window to get him the regular football Javi Gracia couldn’t promise at Watford.It began well enough, with the player appearing in the starting XI for the first four games before disappearing completely, only to reappear once for seven minutes in a 1-0 loss to Zulte Waregem towards the end of November.Speaking to Meridiano on Instagram Live, the player explained what happened.Embed from Getty ImagesHe said: “I didn’t like some of the exercises the manager had put in place at Eupen in training sessions. They seemed pointless to me and after that discussion, he didn’t call me up anymore. I regretted that action, and I went to see him like a man to apologise”.However, with just six appearances to his name in the first half of the season, he was swiftly sent back to Watford after asking the Eupen manager to let him leave (he accepted), where he was meant to feature under Nigel Pearson.He told Meridiano that ‘at his return to Watford, he met up with the manager, who told him he was counting on him, but he first needed to get back in shape having gone a month without training’.Unfortunately for Peñaranda, the Covid-19 pandemic stopped all that in its tracks, and he’ll now have to wait longer to see if he can finally break through long term in the Hornets’ squad.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
