first_img<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Ultra-long distance towing and anchor handling vessel ALP Keeper has been delivered to ALP Maritime Services.The ALP Keeper was constructed by Niigata Shipbuilding & Repair in Okayama, Japan. It is one of four ultra-long distance towing and anchor handling vessels constructed for ALP Maritime Services, a subsidiary of Teekay Offshore Partners. It was named back in late June 2017.ALP said on Monday that the delivery of the ALP Keeper was done last Friday, February 2. After the delivery, the vessel left the yard and then began its journey to Pohang for further outfitting.The vessel is a part of the shipowner’s ALP Future class, a series of towing vessels made for offshore installation and decommissioning of large FPSO units, FLNGs, and drill rigs.The vessel is based on the Ulstein SX 157 design and has a service speed of 13 knots, while its top speed is 19 knots. With a fuel capacity of more than 3,500 m3, the ALP Keeper and the rest of the Future Class quartet can tow at full power for 45 days, sufficient for non-stop Trans-Atlantic/Indian and the Pacific Ocean towing operations without fuel calls. The vessel is 88.9 meters long and 21 meters wide.The aim of the design was to have sufficient bollard pull and operational reliability to handle even the heaviest tows with only two vessels. All four vessels are classed with DNV’s Clean Design and Ice Class 1B notations, which allow operation in restricted zones. The ships can accommodate 35 people for long periods at sea.ALP’s previous three Future Class vessels are the ALP Striker, ALP Defender, and the ALP Sweeper launched in October 2015, January 2016, and May 2016, respectively.Offshore Energy Today Stafflast_img read more

When asked whether he was absolutely certain the centre-half would stay, Benitez said: ”For me, 100 per cent. ”I insist that it is clear for me and the club, Sergio will be here. Football is a curious world, but Ramos will be staying.” The one player United may have more success in procuring is Barcelona’s Pedro. The Spanish forward is on Van Gaal’s wishlist and is said to be having “doubts” about his future at the Nou Camp after realising he has little chance of dislodging Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez or Neymar from Luis Enrique’s all-conquering side. ”I have spoken with Pedro,” Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets told a press conference in San Francisco ahead of the team’s friendly against United. ”I think that as a team-mate and friend, I would like him to stay for a long time, but I understand that he has doubts. ”He wants to play but there is a lot of competition. In our team we have the best players and it’s very difficult (to get into the team). ”I hope he stays but the decision is his.” United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is likely to cross paths with his Barcelona counterparts this weekend when the two teams meet at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. Press Association Sport understands Woodward flew back to the United States on Thursday to rejoin the tour. Woodward spent the first week of the tour with the team in Seattle. It was always planned that he would return for the second leg in California and is expected to attend United’s game against Barcelona. United are short of forwards following the departures of Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao to Fenerbahce and Chelsea respectively. Senior sources at the club denied United had made a £70million bid for Muller last week, but the German World Cup winner is a player Louis van Gaal would be interested in if he became available. But, according to Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Muller will not be leaving the Bundesliga champions this summer. ”There are some players who just don’t have any price tag,” said Rummenigge, who has already lost Bastian Schweinsteiger to United this summer. ”We would be out of our minds to sell Muller.” United also look to be facing disappointment in their pursuit of Ramos. United are willing to swap David de Gea for the Spanish centre-back, who is at loggerheads with Madrid over the terms of a new contract he has been offered. According to Rafael Benitez, his captain will not be leaving the club. ”I have a lot of respect for Louis van Gaal, but Sergio will be staying with us,” the Real Madrid manager said at a press conference in Australia prior to the team’s friendly against Manchester City. ”He is our player, our captain. I would like to see him (at the club) at the beginning of the season, because he’s a key player for us.” Press Association Manchester United have been dealt a double setback in their transfer dealings after being told Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller and Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos are not for sale. read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 5, 2014 at 2:15 am Contact Trevor: | @TrevorHass In less than two months, Kaleb Joseph’s Cushing (Mass.) Academy team went from losing to St. Andrew’s by 30 points to winning the league championship.Against St. Andrew’s, Joseph — who is committed to play for Syracuse next season — played well, but his team got humiliated. “After that loss I was really hard on myself,” Joseph said, “and I was really disappointed I couldn’t lead my team.”On March 1, though, Cushing beat St. Andrew’s 67-64 in the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council Class AA Championship semifinal. The next day, Joseph captured his second consecutive championship, finishing with 25, nine rebounds and nine assists as Cushing beat Kimball Union Academy 78-70. The No. 49 player in the Class of 2014 ended his high school career on top, and is now preparing to play right away for Syracuse.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhen the championship game was over, Joseph celebrated with his teammates, relishing what seemed to many like a long shot earlier in the season.“Honestly I was just all over the place,” Joseph said. “The only thing I could think about was that we finally did it.”Last season the Penguins beat St. Andrew’s in the championship game at the buzzer. People said that win was a fluke, but Joseph knew they were wrong.So he did everything he could to win it again this year.Cushing got off to a slow start to the season, the 87–57 loss to St. Andrew’s serving as the low point. But Joseph knew his team could bounce back. He knew a championship was obtainable. “It was kind of like — you don’t want to say this —” Joseph’s trainer PJ Frappier said, “but kind of like the Miami Heat thing where they were just waiting for the time to come.”When the time came, Joseph and Co. were ready to beat St. Andrew’s like they did last year. The Penguins trailed by 12 with seven minutes to go, but Joseph’s confidence never wavered. While his teammates bickered, Joseph urged them to focus on the game. “I was sitting right behind the bench,” Frappier said, “and Kaleb was like ‘Listen, listen, it’s 12. Just relax, relax. One play at a time.’”Joseph helped push Cushing past St. Andrew’s in the final minutes. Then in the championship game, Cushing beat Kimball 78-70, and Joseph accomplished his goal from the start of the season.“I just love to win,” Joseph said. “I don’t know how else to put it.”Joseph said the ability to lead a team to victory is especially important for a point guard. If Tyler Ennis was doing what he was doing and Syracuse wasn’t winning, Joseph said, Ennis wouldn’t be garnering nearly as much national recognition.Ennis’ ability to thrive in the clutch and competitive nature have helped catapult him into the discussion to be a top-10 pick in the NBA Draft if he opts to leave Syracuse. Joseph’s main focus now is preparing himself as much as possible leading up to the start of his SU career. Now that the championship is in the books, he’s looking toward the future.“I know if Tyler leaves a lot’s going to be expected of me,” Joseph said. “I want to make sure that I’m ready in absolutely every aspect of the game.” Commentslast_img read more

first_img Published on September 30, 2017 at 7:37 pm Contact Matthew: | @MatthewGut21 RALEIGH, N.C. — Syracuse senior Ervin Philips finished with 17 catches and 188 yards Saturday afternoon, breaking the program and Atlantic Coast Conference single-game receptions records.In a 33-25 loss at North Carolina State (4-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast), Syracuse (2-3, 0-1) went down 26-7 at the half. Despite a second-half comeback attempt, the Orange could not reach the Wolfpack and dropped its second straight game. Penalties doomed SU, which could not contain the dangerous N.C. State front seven.Meanwhile, Philips shined. He said before the season that he wanted to be “the best receiver in the ACC.” He had a career-high 188 receiving yards Saturday, finding space mostly over the middle of the field against a linebacker.“When I see a linebacker on me anytime,” Philips said. “I love it.”“I feel like I’ve got an advantage against a linebacker,” Philips added. “Coach saw that early, that they were putting him on me, and we just kept going to me. They depended on me to make a play and win my one-on-one matchups.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU junior quarterback Eric Dungey finished with 385 yards passing, nearly half of which went to Philips on short post and drag routes.Philips said he entered Saturday not knowing the middle would be as open as it was. North Carolina State rushed Dungey often, totaling three sacks and six QB hurries, leaving short passes over the middle as fertile ground for Dungey and the offense. Philips recognized the space early.Dungey has completed 28 passes to Philips over the last two games, including 11 pfor 93 yards and a touchdown last week at then-No. 25 Louisiana State. Over the first three games of the season, Philips had only 16 combined catches for 139 yards. He surpassed his total through SU’s first three games on Saturday alone.“I just want to stay consistent,” Philips said. “I know I’m capable of performances like this.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
