Subsea 7 and Royal IHC Splash Seven Vega

first_imgSubsea 7 and Royal IHC have launched the fully integrated reel-lay vessel Seven Vega. The ceremony took place at IHC’s shipyard in Krimpen aan den IJssel, The Netherlands, and was performed by Monica Th. Bjørkmann, Vice President for Subsea 7 in Norway.Stuart Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President Strategy and Commercial Subsea 7 said: “The vessel marks an important investment for the future. When delivered in early 2020, Seven Vega will be one of the most capable and cost-effective reel-lay vessels in the market and a global enabler for Subsea 7. It has been designed to deliver flowline technologies that address the growing market trend towards longer and more complex tie-back developments. The vessel’s cutting-edge pipelay system focuses on crew safety, operational efficiency and flexibility. This system will be capable of installing complex rigid flowlines including pipe-in-pipe systems and electrically heat traced flowlines in water depths up to 3000m.”Dave Vander Heyde, CEO Royal IHC: “We are very proud of achieving this milestone for this impressive project. Our partnership with Subsea 7 has again proven to be successful and we are pleased to add more value to their advanced fleet. The integrated approach of IHC to vessel design, will give Subsea 7 an industry leading asset that sets a new standard in offshore pipelay.”IHC designed Seven Vega in close cooperation with Subsea 7. The high-specification vessel will be capable of installing complex rigid flowlines including pipe-in-pipe systems.Several innovative features make Seven Vega the most technologically advanced vessel to date. Its compact dimensions are a result of the creative positioning of its three engine rooms and main reel, efficient use of the superstructure, and low air draft pipelay tower. The smart use of space opens up a large aft working deck, while the optimised mass distribution minimises the ballast water requirement.The design of the reel-lay system was focused on crew safety, operational efficiency and flexibility. The twin tensioner pipelay ramp tilts to allow pipeline installation from shallow waters to depths of up to 3,000m. The large multi-level workstation optimises the efficiency of operations in and around the firing line, while the creative positioning of the main and auxiliary reels – recessed into the main deck – offers payload flexibility.In addition, the all-electric main crane allows lift parameters to be adjusted promptly without having to manually adapt the active heave system. By having fewer components, maintenance and energy consumption are also reduced.Seven Vega has an overall length of 149m, a breadth of 33m and a Class 3 dynamic positioning system. Its reel-lay system has a 600t top tension capacity consisting of a 32m main reel and a 17m auxiliary reel with a maximum storage capacity of 5,600t and 1,600t respectively. SEVEN VEGA is fitted with cranes offering a lifting capacity of 250t and 50t, and mutiple smaller cranes alongside two side-launching work-class ROV systems.This reel-lay vessel is the ninth vessel IHC will deliver to Subsea 7. The delivery represents a fully integrated pipelay vessel equipped with a pipelay system designed, engineered and built by IHC.last_img read more

Speaking further, the Lagos FA Chairman also corrected the notion that the clauses inserted in the new contract of the Super Eagles Manager Gernot Rohr were aimed at discouraging the Franco-German from renewing his contract. “The conditions in the new contract tabled before Rohr are meant to improve his efficiency and productivity. They are also geared at enhancing domestic football and giving home-based players the opportunities to play in the senior national football team”, he said. read also:Thinking Aloud: If Barrister Dalung had returned as Minister Barrister Akinwunmi disclosed that the update on the contract renewals will be announced by the NFF Secretariat at the appropriate time.

EPL: Reds set to dim Brighton

first_imgRelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Liverpool vs. BrightonVenue: Anfield StadiumKick off: 4PMLiverpool switch their focus back to the Premier League on Saturday when they welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to Anfield.The Reds remain eight points clear at the top of the table having dropped only two of the 39 points on offer so far this season, but were held to a 1-1 draw in front of their own fans by Napoli on Wednesday night.Such has been Liverpool’s form in recent times that any match they do not win will cause headlines, but there had been warning signs prior to the midweek Napoli draw.Indeed, there are surprisingly few games this season in which the Reds can be said to have been at their best, yet they have still won 18 of their 21 fixtures across all competitions and sit eight points clear at the top of the table.It begs the question: just how will anyone stop them if they do rediscover their top form?The level of performance will only be of secondary importance for Jurgen Klopp given that his side continue to pick up results, and he will be aware that a drop-off would only be natural during a spell which will see them play 12 games in the space of 37 days.Even so, the failure to beat Napoli on Wednesday means that their final group game against Red Bull Salzburg on December 10 carries much greater importance, with defeat in Austria likely to see them crash out of the Champions League a little more than six months after lifting the trophy.Losing is not something Liverpool have made a habit of in recent years, though, and Saturday’s late triumph over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park made it 30 Premier League games without defeat stretching back to January, during which time they have picked up 80 points from a possible 90.Only two teams have ever enjoyed a longer unbeaten run in the competition’s history, and if Liverpool can extend that this weekend then they would equal their own top-flight club record of 31, set during the 1987-88 campaign.The Reds unsurprisingly went on to win the league that season, but the fact that they are being made to fight for every victory this term means that there has been no chance for complacency to creep in.Seven of their 12 top-flight wins have been by a one-goal margin, preventing anyone from looking too far ahead to the prospect of a first title in 30 years.Of course, with each passing week that looks more likely with Liverpool still eight points clear of Leicester City and nine above champions Manchester City – a commanding lead for a team that has lost just one of their last 52 Premier League games.A slip-up certainly does not look like coming at Anfield, where Klopp’s side have not lost in any competition since September 2018 and in the league since April 2017 – runs of 31 and 46 matches respectively.Curiously, though, Liverpool are currently enduring their worst clean sheet run since 1998.The Reds have conceded in each of their last 11 matches across all competitions and have only kept three shutouts throughout the season, all of which came with Adrian in goal.There have been no clean sheets at all at Anfield, which is a wholly unexpected chink in their armour given their strength in that department last season.Only Napoli have been able to truly expose that weakness to any great effect so far this term, and Graham Potter will no doubt have been watching the Italian outfit’s performance closely on Wednesday as they ended Liverpool’s 17-match winning streak at Anfield.Any result on Merseyside would further enhance the reputation of a manager that has already impressed so much that the club handed him a new six-year contract this week, just six months after he was initially appointed.It has certainly been an encouraging start for the Seagulls, who in terms of points are closer to the top five than they are the bottom three, but Potter will know just how quickly things can change and, while their current position of 12th will feel comfortable, they are only two points above the much more perilous 17th place.The timing of Potter’s new deal was a clear message of support following back-to-back defeats at the hands of Manchester United and Leicester City, particularly considering their fixtures do not get any easier. Liverpool possible XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Lallana, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Mane.Brighton possible XI: Ryan, Montoya, Dunk, Duffy, Burn, Alzate, Propper, Stephens, Trossard, Maupay, Connolly.Tags: BrightonEPLLiverpoollast_img read more

Suarez: Madrid has Real appeal

first_img Press Association Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has admitted would find it hard to turn down a move to Real Madrid. Suarez revealed in an interview with Uruguayan radio station Sport 890 the fierce criticism he has faced from the English media may force him to continue his career elsewhere. “I’ve worked hard since childhood to get where I am and I keep getting constant criticism from the English press. It makes me tired. Liverpool want me to stay, but do not know what will happen,” he said. center_img The 26-year-old has courted controversy since his arrival from Ajax, facing repeated accusations of diving, and serving a ban for racially abusing Manchester United’s Patrice Evra and another another for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic. He added: “It would be difficult to say ‘no’ to Real Madrid.” Suarez said the Reds had treated him well and he had “only words of thanks for the fans”. He added: “So far I have not received any official offer from Madrid.” The striker has established himself as one of Europe’s leading players since moving to Anfield in 2011, but his indiscipline has meant the club have had to cope without him for long periods. He will miss the first six games of next season following his 10-match ban for biting Ivanovic, having been banned for eight matches for abusing Evra. Madrid are currently looking for a new manager, with Jose Mourinho leaving at the end of the Primera Division season. last_img read more

USC notches impressive conference-opening win

first_imgFacing top-10 ranked Hawai’i, the No. 2 USC women’s water polo team knew that a win wouldn’t come easily, but 32 minutes later the Women of Troy exited McDonald’s Swim Stadium with a 14-7 win.The win marked USC’s first in Mountain Pacific Sports Federation play, as senior two-meter Kami Craig led the team with four goals, powering a scoring barrage that saw nine different players record at fewest one goal.“We knew we had to come out with a lot of energy in this game,” Craig said. “We wanted to switch the momentum and gain some confidence heading into the Irvine tournament this weekend. So it was just a continuous battle throughout the game, and we eventually caught up with Hawai’i in the third quarter.”USC (7-1, 1-0) got off to a sluggish start once again, as they failed to get on the scoreboard until midway through the opening period before eventually tallying six first-half goals to give the Women of Troy a three-goal halftime lead.The third quarter, however, marked a strong momentum shift for the Women of Troy, as they recorded five goals to put themselves in the driver’s seat. Craig tallied three goals in the period to reach 128 career goals, taking over as USC’s 10th all-time leading scorer.But Craig wasn’t the only one who got in a rhythm offensively in the second half. Sophomore drivers also tallied three goals to help put the team in a comfortable position. The offensive display made it incredibly tough on a Hawai’i team that grew tired as the game wore on.“Hawai’i got tired because we played a physical defense and were able to push it quite a bit,” said USC head coach Jovan Vavic. “It was tough on them because they don’t have a deep team. We were able to play more players and that made a difference.”That type of aggressive defense, which jumpstarted USC’s offense and made it incredibly difficult on the Rainbow Wahine (5-5, 0-2) offense, was even more stifling than in weeks past. Even a normally pessimistic Vavic took note of the team’s improved play.“We’re definitely doing a better job defensively,” Vavic said. “I think overall, our defense is picking up. Defense is all about attitude. Anybody can play defense. You just need to be focused to play.”With an impressive victory in hand, USC now heads south to participate in the challenging UC Irvine Invitational this weekend. On Saturday, the Women of Troy will open group play against Long Beach State, a team they already defeated 13-3 in their season opener earlier this month.“We’re excited to learn from our last mistakes from the last tournament,” Craig said. “We have a whole new attitude now and a little burning desire to get revenge.”last_img read more

Syracuse women’s basketball falls at No. 7 Florida State, 77-58

first_imgSyracuse (13-7, 4-3 Atlantic Coast) dropped its second straight road game, this time losing at No. 7 Florida State, 77-58, on Thursday night. The Orange now falls to 4-7 away from the Carrier Dome.The problem tonight for SU was the first quarter, when it got outscored by FSU 26-7. Syracuse had 13 missed shots and six turnovers in the frame. The Orange made a run in the second half but it was far from enough.“In the first half we dug ourselves a hole,” SU head coach Quentin Hillsman said. “That could have been a 35, 40-point loss.”Outside of the first quarter, FSU and the Orange each scored 51 points. The 21 turnovers for the Orange is the worst mark in conference play this season and the Seminoles picked up 26 points off the miscues.Alexis Peterson, who scored 21 of her 26 points after the break, led Syracuse’s second half charge. But she was left without much help, as Brittney Sykes was the only other player to score in double figures, with 10. FSU had more points in the paint (34) than everyone on SU combined, excluding Peterson.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHillsman is disappointed in his team’s performance and had a simple solution for how the Orange can improve next time out.“You gotta make shots to start the game off,” Hillsman said.
