first_imgMHI Vestas will host the Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen, Energy Minister Lars Christian Lilleholt and Mayor of Kerteminde Hans Luunbjerg at the company’s nacelle factory in Lindø today, 7 November, for a factory tour and discussion of the country’s offshore wind market.According to MHI Vestas, the visit comes after the company hired 284 new employees at industrial facilities across Denmark since March 2017, including Lindø, a blade manufacturing facility in Nakskov, and new power converter module assembly site in Esbjerg.Jens Tommerup, the company’s CEO, said: “We are very proud to host the Danish Prime Minister and other distinguished guests today at our factory. The highly skilled men and women who are employed at our production facilities throughout regional Denmark are a big part of Denmark’s success in offshore wind – an industry that is becoming increasingly global.”MHI Vestas’ job growth in Denmark this year came as a result of a high demand for its 9.5MW V164 platform, the company said.The V164 wind turbine was launched in June 2017, and is the most powerful serially-produced wind turbine in the world.MHI Vestas and Clemson University in South Carolina recently announced that the turbine will have all testing and verification of its gearbox and main bearings carried out at the university’s 15MW test bench. This deal marks the company’s first major investment in the United States.The V164-9.5 MW wind turbine is the turbine most likely to be used for the first round of major offshore wind projects in the United States, MHI Vestas said.last_img read more

No I in ‘team’ – Sessegnon

first_imgStephane Sessegnon has attributed Sunderland’s timely improvement to team-work rather than his own efforts. The 28-year-old Benin international has returned to something like his best form since the arrival of new manager Paolo Di Canio, and reaped the rewards once again on Saturday, when six days after setting the Black Cats on the way to derby victory at Newcastle, he put high-flying Everton to the sword with the only goal of the game. Sessegnon’s overall contribution in the last few weeks has earned him rave reviews from the Italian, but he insists the credit must be shared, and he told the Sunderland Echo: “He (Di Canio) hasn’t said anything particularly special to me. Above all, his message has been about working as a team.” He added: “That’s what we have done in training and tried to do in the games, and you can see the results. “The defence was very solid against Everton and that has been the main thing the new manager has done differently. It’s all about working together and functioning together.” Sunderland’s transformation has been remarkable and a club which was deep in relegation trouble has now established a very different momentum heading into what could prove a crucial trip to Aston Villa next Monday evening. However, with confidence high at the Stadium of Light, Sessegnon and his team-mates are looking upwards rather than over their shoulders. The former Paris St Germain player said: “We have managed to get three points for two weeks in a row, so we are all very satisfied. “It was important to keep it going because our place in the table was still not the healthiest. We are in a position where every point we can take is good. “The win at Newcastle was important both for the three points and the confidence it gave us. If we keep playing this way in the final matches of the season, then we will finish the season well.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

No system in place to help impoverished national athletes – President Granger

first_imgON Tuesday May 16, Guyana Chronicle told the distressing story of Guyana’s CARIFTA Games gold (3000m) and bronze (1500m) medallist Claudrice McKoy, who, despite the lack of basic daily necessities, including electricity, even though she lives in the capital, has been excelling in both track and academics.McKoy’s story is still trending, as calls mount for Government to put in place, some mechanism that will help our athletes, more so those who are needy.“Government would like to encourage all sports, (but) there’s no institution or mechanism examining persons who are talented but impoverished,” said President David Granger.Speaking exclusively with Chronicle Sport yesterday, the Head-of-State pointed out that while there’s “something that could be done on a case-by-case basis, there’s no programme for training and sponsoring impoverished athletes.”“Each case will be judged on its merit; we want to give every opportunity for talented people whether or not they are poor; we want to be well represented in the sports arena around the world,” President Granger explained.Meanwhile, McKoy’s principal, Henry Chase said that a donation of an undisclosed sum was made to the athlete on Tuesday.Chase handed McKoy a scholarship to his institution (Chase’s Academic Foundation), solely on her athletic ability. He also remarked that the 16-year-old was exceptional academically.McKoy is currently writing nine subjects at this year’s Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examination and Chase is confident of the middle-distance athlete coming out on top.However, Chase said he only learnt of the student’s unfortunate situation after reading the article and said he felt compelled to help.“She’s humble, mannerly and does really well in school,” Chase said, adding “I had no idea of her struggle until I read the story, so I felt the need to step up and do something like I do for a number of my students, especially those who are here on scholarship.”last_img read more

Syracuse drops matchup with Pittsburgh, 3-1

first_imgSyracuse (7-20, 6-11 Atlantic Coast) lost in four sets to Pittsburgh (21-8, 12-5 Atlantic Coast) on Friday night.The Orange has dropped the first two sets and won the third of each of the last three matches and four of its last five. In each, it lost the fourth set. SU finished with a .182 hitting percentage and 17 fewer kills than the Panthers.Anastasiya Gorelina lead the team with 11 kills, followed by Kendra Luckacs who had 10. Those two players were the only members of the Orange to finish with double-digit kills.In addition to each player’s kills, Gorelina and Luckacs had 12 and 14 digs, respectively, to get double-doubles.SU led Pitt in every major defensive category – digs, total blocks, and block assists were all greater than its opponent – but could not get the offense going for the entirety of the match.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLeah Levert had eight total blocks. Mackenzie Weaver and Santita Ebangwese each chipped in with five apiece.Ebangwese, again, paced SU in hitting percentage with .455 but only finished with six kills.The Orange team had no player who surpassed 22 assists and only two players had more than three. Assist numbers have been a problem all season for the Orange as they often come from only one or two players. The lack of passing in this game hurt the Orange offense, forcing the team to score far fewer points than its opponent.Syracuse will remain at home this Sunday and face off against Virginia Tech in the Women’s building.

San Jose Sharks’ Evander Kane criticizes NHL Department of Player Safety after receiving suspension

first_imgOn Saturday, the NHL’s Department of Player Safety announced San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane has been suspended three games for elbowing Winnipeg Jets defenseman Neal Pionk — and Kane is less than thrilled.After hearing news of his suspension, Kane released a statement in response claiming that the Department of Player Safety “give some players a pass and throw the book at others.” “The fact the NHL Department of Player Safety headed by George Parros continue to pick and choose, who and what they suspend is ridiculous,” Kane wrote. “No one person can tell you what is or isn’t a suspension in today’s game, it’s become a complete guess. There is a major lack of consistency with NHL Department of Player Safety … None of it makes any sense.”MY STATEMENT: pic.twitter.com/taoALpVmvn— Evander Kane (@evanderkane_9) February 15, 2020With just under seven minutes left in regulation in the Sharks’ 3-2 win over Winnipeg, Kane issued a check on Pionk deep in the Jets’ defensive zone. According to the Player Safety video detailing the event, Kane “raises his arm, extends his elbow and drives it with force into Pionk’s head.”MORE: Oilers’ Zack Kassian receives seven-game suspension after kicking opponent with skate#ICYMI Here was the #SJSharks Evander Kane elbow on #GoJetsGo Neal Pionk. pic.twitter.com/Fchdc7aI7W— Here’s Your Replay ⬇️ (@HeresYourReplay) February 15, 2020The Sharks forward was assessed a two-minute minor penalty for elbowing.Kane also tweeted a couple of replays in his frustration, asking why players were not suspended for their actions on the ice.But I thought this was a 1 game playoff suspension??? No? https://t.co/v6NCUqquGI— Evander Kane (@evanderkane_9) February 15, 2020But this doesn’t get anything?? Tell me what this difference is please! https://t.co/MSw50eIENa— Evander Kane (@evanderkane_9) February 15, 2020Zdeno Chara was fined $5,000 for his cross-check and Lawson Crouse was given no external discipline for his check. San Jose entered the season with playoff aspirations but now sit 10 points out of a wild card spot with just 25 games left in the season. The team suffered another loss on Saturday when it announced that defenseman Erik Karlsson will miss the remainder of the season with a broken thumb.This is Kane’s second suspension of the season — he was forced to sit out the first three games of the season for physical abuse of an official. He was also suspended one game in 2018 for cross-checking.Kane has 21 goals and 37 points this season. He will be eligible to return for San Jose’s Feb. 22 game against the New York Rangers.last_img read more
