Marine tech certification takes step forward with Lloyd’s Register

first_imgThe MET-CERTIFIED project has welcomed aboard the certification body Lloyd’s Register (LR) which will be providing its expertise to progress the development and global standardization of marine energy devices.The LR’s involvement with MET-CERTIFIED will assess the value of universal marine energy certification schemes to help provide confidence to private and commercial investors seeking to invest in marine energy projects.MET-CERTIFIED is an initiative that seeks to increase the adoption of insurable and therefore bankable marine energy projects through the development of internationally recognized standards and certification schemes, and by testing and verifying technologies against International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards for marine energy converters.Peter Davies, Principal Specialist of Renewable Energy for LR says: “Certification helps to reduce perceived risks of new or upcoming technologies used in marine energy power generation projects and can help to increase market confidence in how devices perform and their structural integrity, as well as helping this sector attract previously untapped finance schemes and making exporting marine energy technology across the world easier.”The initiative has been backed by EU funding in the amount of €5.6 million received in December 2016, and covers England, France, the Netherlands and Belgium, known as the Interreg 2 SEAS region.MET-CERTIFIED is evaluating the entire process of certification, from concept to construction through to installation of a full-scale floating platform for tidal turbines with the support of a number of industry partners.The initiative is of huge importance to the marine energy industry and particularly for stakeholders wanting security and knowledge in how technology can be, and should be, certified – critical to stakeholder groups such as banks and insurers through to consenting authorities, end-users, test facilities and classification authorities, MET-CERTIFIED said.“Together with nine other partners from the Interreg 2 SEAS region we are working on standards and certification schemes for marine renewables both at the national and international level. LR will be providing updates to the project on current developments in standards and certification schemes.“Also we will be providing feedback to the standards and certification committees from a lessons learnt assessment by implementing the standards and certification schemes across eight test models,” added Davies.Millions of devices that contain electronics, and use or produce electricity, rely on IEC International Standards and Conformity Assessment Systems to perform, fit and work safely together.Likewise, the IEC System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment (IECRE) in Renewable Energy Applications aims to facilitate international trade in equipment and services for use in renewable energy sectors to maintain the required level of safety.last_img read more

Arsenal confirm six-month loan for Pablo Mari

first_imgRelatedPosts Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Arsenal, Wolves want Michael Olise Akpom pens Middlesbrough loan deal Arsenal have completed the loan signing of Pablo Mari from Flamengo. The deal for the 26-year-old Spaniard was confirmed on Wednesday with Mari arriving on six-month loan for a fee of around £4 million before he will join the club permanently in the summer with further add-ons. Flamengo gave him permission to travel back to London and announced late on Tuesday night that they had confirmed the signing of Athletico Paranaense defender Leo Pereira for £5.9 million as his replacement. After finalising the move, the Spaniard revealed he was delighted to be joining a “big club” like Arsenal. “When I spoke to my agent, it was a big thing that Arsenal were interested in me,” Mari told the Arsenal website. “This is one of the best clubs in the world, so I’m absolutely delighted to be joining. I’m really looking forward to playing in this jersey and helping my team. “Right now I want to focus on the day-to-day side of things. I think we need to put the plans to one side for now because the most important thing is to take things one day at a time and focus on achieving short-term goals. “We need to change the dynamic around the team, so the short-term objectives are the most important thing. As I’ve said, we have Mikel’s ideas, aligned with the club, and we need to perform very well to change things.” Mari only moved to Flamengo in July but impressed during his short stint in South America. “The time has come to say goodbye to this defender who arrived at Flamengo to make his mark in our history with the titles of the CONMEBOL Libertadores and the Brazilian championship. Pablo Mari, thanks for everything,” the club tweeted.Tags: ArsenalAthletico ParanaenseflamingoLeo PereiraPablo Marilast_img read more

Carver to meet fans

first_img Press Association He tweeted: “I’ve been invited to the training ground on Friday to meet Carver and the players and watch a bit of training and sit down and talk to Carver, which is a massive thing to me even with everything going on at the club. “So me and @Thomas91C will be going along on Friday, which we are thankful for getting the chance to speak to staff and players and get the point across that me and @Thomas91C and all you are making, and hopefully find out what Carver is trying to do. “This is a massive opportunity and a chance of a lifetime for me as a fan, no matter what’s going on at the club, and it’s a chance to try and connect back with the club we all deep down love.” The move comes as disgruntled fans protesting at the way owner Mike Ashley is running the club – attendances for the last two games at St James’ Park have been significantly lower than usual with thousands of spectators responding to calls for a boycott. In addition, the club has slipped to within five points of the relegation zone after a desperate run of results, and they face a trip to in-form Leicester at the weekend knowing things could get worse before they get better. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel for Carver with Moussa Sissoko due to return from suspension on Saturday and Papiss Cisse a game behind him, while midfielder Siem de Jong played 90 minutes for the Under-21s on Tuesday afternoon as he stepped up his return from an eight-month injury lay-off. Social media platforms were buzzing on Saturday evening amid claims that the 50-year-old had reacted in kind to abuse he received as the Magpies slipped to a seventh successive loss, although the club later moved to deny that he had used foul or abusive language and offered to see one of the angry supporters after the game. Later in his press conference, Carver insisted he would happily sit down with anyone and try to explain to them what he is trying to do with the team as he attempts to halt an alarming slide, and fan Allen O’Connell revealed via his Twitter account on Tuesday evening that he and another supporter are to get together with Alan Pardew’s former assistant on Friday. center_img Newcastle head coach John Carver is to meet two fans with whom he become involved in a heated exchange during Saturday’s Barclays Premier League defeat by Swansea. last_img read more

ICC World Cup Teams will probably be most fearful of Australia: Steve Waugh

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Former captain Steve Waugh said Australia may not be the favourites to win the upcoming World Cup but the return of Steve Smith and David Warner will make other teams “wary” of the five-time winners. Smith and Warner’s year-long international exile following bans for ball-tampering came to an end a couple of month ago. Immediately after returning to action Warner, with 692 runs from 12 innings in the IPL, sounded warning bells to the rival bowlers while Smith showed glimpses of his old touch in the three warm-up matches against New Zealand in Brisbane recently.“Every side will be wary of Australia. They know the potential of the Australian side. There’s been turmoil in Australian cricket over the last 12 months, but that has been put aside now. We’ve got our best players available to be picked in Smith and Warner,” Waugh was quoted as saying by the ICC website.The defending champions seem to be peaking at the right time. Starting in 2018, Australia had won just three out of 18 ODIs before they turned their fortunes around during the limited-overs tour of India.Trailing 0-2, Australia posted a hat-trick of wins to register a remarkable come-from-behind series victory against the favourites and hosts India in March. Then, they blanked Pakistan 5-0 at the United Arab Emirates, proving that their success against India was no fluke.“Their form was very poor, but all of a sudden, they’ve won their last eight matches, and they’ve got Smith and Warner in the team. And that is ominous for other sides, they know how good these sides are.“Australia will be one of the teams? probably not the favourite for the tournament, but the team that other sides will be probably most fearful of. They could do some damage. So I think Australia could go really deep in the tournament,” Waugh said.The 53-year-old, however, picked hosts England as the firm favourites to clinch the coveted trophy.“England to me are probably the favourites – their form has been outstanding over the last couple of years. They are playing at home. Sometimes, that creates more pressure, but they’ve got a really good coach in Trevor Bayliss to keep the players grounded. So, I think England would be favourites, and probably Australia and India on that second line of favouritism,” said Waugh. last_img read more

Liverpool, Arsenal off to flying starts in new Premier League season

first_imgBy Simon EvansLIVERPOOL, England (Reuters) – Liverpool and Arsenal got off to winning starts with victories over promoted sides on the opening day of the new Premier League season yesterday.Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick, including two penalties as champions Liverpool won a seven-goal thriller with hugely impressive Leeds United at Anfield with the Egyptian grabbing the win from the spot in the 88th minute of a 4-3 victory.Arsenal enjoyed a more comfortable opening day with a 3-0 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage. Crystal Palace beat Southampton 1-0 with Wilfried Zaha on target.Liverpool took just four minutes to get on target — Leeds debutant German defender Robin Koch was ruled to have handled a Salah shot and the Egyptian blasted home the spot-kick.Jack Harrison equalised for Leeds eight minutes later with a fine solo goal before Liverpool restored their lead in the 20th minute with Virgil van Dijk left unmarked to head in an Andy Robertson corner.Marcelo Bielsa’s side, back in the top flight after a 16-year absence, rallied again with Patrick Bamford slotting home after van Dijk had failed to deal with a ball over the top.Salah blasted Liverpool back in front, 12 minutes before the break but Leeds hit back for a third time through Polish midfielder Mateusz Klich, who made it 3-3.Liverpool secured the points in the 88th minute with another Salah penalty after substitute Rodrigo Moreno clumsily brought down Fabinho.“What a game, what an opponent, what a performance from both teams. A proper spectacle, I loved that,” said Klopp.“It is pretty rare you see that many goals in a game and we have left space for improvement in our defending but that is not unusual for a first game,” added the German.Liverpool are now unbeaten in 60 straight league games at Anfield — the kind of consistency that Mikel Arteta must dream about at Arsenal but the Gunners at least took care of business in West London.Alexander Lacazette fired the visitors ahead in the eighth minute after poor defending by the home side before new signing Gabriel made it 2-0 in the 49th and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put the icing on the cake with a superb shot into the top corner.Crystal Palace forward Zaha scored his 50th league goal for the club as they beat Southampton 1-0 to secure a home victory on the opening day of a Premier League campaign for the first time.The hosts went ahead against the run of play as Zaha, who had managed only one goal in his previous 21 games, met Andros Townsend’s pin-point cross from the right with a side-footed volley past goalkeeper Alex McCarthy in the 13th minute.Southampton defender Kyle Walker-Peters was shown a straight red for a high challenge before referee Jon Moss changed it to a yellow following the intervention of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).West Ham United were hosting Newcastle United later yesterday while today Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur take on Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton.last_img read more

Man Utd 2 – 1 Chelsea (agg 3 – 1)

first_imgManchester United sealed a place in the Champions League semi-finals with victory over Chelsea as Carlo Ancelotti’s decision to axe Didier Drogba in favour of Fernando Torres backfired at Old Trafford.Ancelotti took the gamble of favouring the British record £50m capture from Liverpool ahead of Drogba in an attempt to overhaul the one-goal advantage United were protecting from the first leg at Stamford Bridge.The striker’s struggles continued, however, and he was hauled off at half-time after Javier Hernandez doubled United’s lead in the tie moments before the break.Drogba underlined the error of his coach’s ways with an outstanding second-half show that even brought Chelsea hope when he scored with 13 minutes left as Ancelotti’s side struggled under the handicap of being reduced to 10 men when Ramires was sent off for a second yellow card after fouling Nani.If Chelsea harboured any ambition of turning the game on its head, it was short-lived as Park Ji-sung restored United’s lead seconds later to clinch a meeting with either holders Inter Milan or Schalke 04 in the last four.As Old Trafford celebrated at the final whistle, Ancelotti cut a predictably disconsolate figure with only the very faint prospect of challenging United for the title left in his attempts to follow up the Premier League and FA Cup Double he claimed in his first season. And while his decision to go with Torres ahead of Drogba showed commendable courage, as did his decision to take the Spaniard off after only 45 minutes, he now faces the prospect of the selection potentially starting the credits rolling on his Chelsea career following the exit from the tournament owner Roman Abramovich is desperate to claim.If Torres is looking an expensive misfit at £50m, United’s swoop for Hernandez can already be regarded as one of the great bargains with another prime example of the goal-poaching instincts that came with only a £6m price tag attached.United can now turn their attentions to Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against neighbours Manchester City at Wembley as their charge for a repeat of their 1999 Treble remains firmly on course.Ancelotti made the big call in selecting Torres ahead of Drogba and the early signs looked good for Chelsea as they took the game to United with ambition and purpose in pursuit of the goal they required.Chelsea created early opportunities but crucially, given the balance of the tie, they were wasted. Nicolas Anelka was twice narrowly off target and Frank Lampard should have done better than shoot straight at Edwin van der Sar following good work by Florent Malouda. Wayne Rooney and Hernandez have developed a potent partnership and they almost created the breakthrough for United when the Mexican headed in an inviting cross, only to be ruled offside by the slenderest of margins.United keeper Van der Sar made light of his 40 years with a sprightly dash from goal to make a perfectly timed tackle and clearance on Anelka as the Chelsea striker escaped the attentions of his markers.As Chelsea neared the end of a first half they would have regarded with a measure of satisfaction, United struck a devastating blow that underlined the importance of those missed chances.John O’Shea fashioned the original opening with a perfect pass inside Anelka and Giggs was equally incisive with a cross that was bundled into the roof of the net in trademark fashion by the predatory Hernandez.Ancelotti needed to act and his response was dramatic by any standards, hauling off Torres and replacing him with Drogba in an attempt to rescue a quarter-final that was slipping away. And Drogba wasted no time in making more of an impression that the struggling Spaniard, firing in an effort that left Van der Sar scrambling and a free-kick that the keeper was forced to punch to safety.Chelsea’s efforts to somehow snatch at a lifeline suffered a setback with 20 minutes left when Ramires flew into a reckless tackle on Nani and left referee Oligario Benquerenca with no option other that to brandish a second yellow card.Drogba then gave Chelsea hope, if only for a matter of seconds, when he took Michael Essien’s pass on his chest and drilled a low finish beyond Van der Sar.If Chelsea had thoughts of completing an unlikely fightback, they were snuffed out almost immediately as another Giggs cross found Park unmarked on the angle of the penalty area, the South Korean making the most of the time and space afforded to him to beat Petr Cech.United ran down the clock with comfort – now time may also be running out for Ancelotti.

Appiah well aware of final-round dangers

first_imgGhana coach Kwasi Appiah says final round qualifying matches are never easy in international football.The Black Stars play Malawi in Accra on Saturday in the first leg of the final round fixture in the qualifying for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.Despite sitting 59 places above Malawi on the world ranking table, Appiah insists his players will not underestimate the threat posed by the Flames when they kick off at the Accra Sports Stadium at 15:30GMT.According to Appiah, the Black Stars are prepared for the tricky encounter.“When the competition reaches a stage like this, every side is prepared for it. The tie is decided over two matches. And over two games, it doesn’t matter the size of a country, it’s about the preparation, determination and hardwork of your side that will get you through,” Appiah told www.ghanafa.org ahead of the game on Saturday.Appiah is very confident that his team can do a good job in the first leg. “What I demand of my team is to put in the hardwork and get out there to do same. We’re well aware that they [Malawi] will be attempting to cause problems.“We must deal with it and be ambitious. So, what matters to me is to do our best. Sometimes, it might not be too pleasing for the eye but we have to give off our best and get the results. We won’t underestimate them.”The winner over both legs qualifies for next year’s tournament in South Africa.Thirty countries have been split into 15 home-and-away ties with the winners joining hosts, South Africa, who are automatic qualifiers for the Nations Cup.Next year’s finals will mark the last time that the Nations Cup will be held in even-number years since Ethiopia staged the 1968 finals. The competition switches to uneven-number years from 2013 to avoid every second tournament being staged in the same year as a World Cup.last_img read more
