Minesto flies smaller tidal kites offering

first_imgMitigating political uncertainties of tidal energy market in the UK When it comes to the Minesto’s first commercial-scale 500kW Deep Green installation in Wales, the company said the preparations for offshore testing are now in its final phase.The installation of the system in Holyhead Deep off Anglesey is planned for April 2018, while the electricity generation is expected to take place in the third quarter of 2018, according to Minesto.“This is a key milestone in the overall development of the Deep Green technology and the results will enable customers, project financiers and funding partners to take the next steps in cooperation with Minesto,” the company said.However, Minesto pointed out the political uncertainties surrounding the United Kingdom’s revenue support mechanism for new renewable energy technologies that have arisen in the autumn 2017.Minesto said that an alternative revenue support mechanism for the UK marine renewable energy industry has been proposed, but is not yet in place, which complicates project investments in the UK.Also, the Swedish tidal energy developer added the negotiations on the UK’s exit from the EU have not yet yielded any results related to the marine energy industry in Britain.“Minesto’s current work in Wales is not affected by this, nor does it affect potential following financial support from the European Regional Development Funds in Wales. However, there are potential for delays to future deployment phases of Holyhead Deep given that the political uncertainties potentially will last for a long time,” said the company.To mitigate this uncertainty, and to take advantage of identified business opportunities, Minesto said it intends to intensify and broaden its activities for market penetration to EU, and Taiwan in addition to that of UK.As reported earlier, Minesto has in December 2017, proposed share rights issue targeting $12 million to support the installation, testing and demonstration of its tidal energy technology in Holyhead Deeep, enhance the product range, and expand market opportunities. Minesto has outlined plans to offer a smaller Deep Green tidal energy device as it aims to open new markets and business opportunities.The Swedish tidal energy developer intends to develop a smaller Deep Green DG100 unit, with a rated power of up to 100kW and a 4–5-meter wing span to expand the market opportunities mainly in Asia as well as in other regions.Minesto said the move to enhance the company’s product range had arisen from the significant customer demand for smaller-scale autonomously operated Deep Green systems in so called Island Mode.Island Mode installations can be used across a wide spectrum of applications from remote industries to entire communities that do not have access to centrally distributed electricity either today or in the future, Minesto noted.Based on a new internal analysis of university and marine research studies, Minesto estimates that the identified exploitable potential of the company’s product exceeds 600GW installed capacity, which is three times higher than previous assessments.last_img read more

Amit Mishra 2nd Player To Get Out For Obstruction

first_imgVisakhapatnam: Delhi Capitals spinner Amit Mishra became the second batsman in the history of Indian Premier League (IPL) to be given out for obstructing the field.The incident happened during the Eliminator between Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday when Amit Mishra was given out for obstructing the field in the final over of the nail-biting contest.With DC requiring two runs to win off the last three balls, Amit Mishra was desperate to get off strike. The leg-spinner, after missing the fourth ball bowled by Khaleel Ahmed, started running for a single. However, realising that he would not be able to finish the run, changed his direction mid-way.That prompted Ahmed to collect the keeper’s throw and hit it at the non-striker’s end. The throw, however, struck Amit Mishra’s right arm.The SRH fielders started to appeal straightaway and umpires went for a review. There was some confusion over the review as well, with umpires initially signalling not out after having checked that Mishra had not edged the ball to the keeper.However, Amit Mishra’s run was later reviewed and he was found to have intentionally blocked the throw with his body.

Samuels heads missing West Indies quartet

first_imgWEST Indies have left out quartet Marlon Samuels, Sulieman Benn, Johnson Charles and Sunil Narine for the upcoming England ODI series.Marlon Samuels, Sulieman Benn, Johnson Charles and Sunil Narine have been left out of West Indies’ 15-man training squad ahead of their one-day international series with England.Samuels was cleared to return to bowl in international cricket by the ICC last week but it was not enough to earn him an ODI recall – his last appearances coming in October before being dropped for their tri-series in Zimbabwe.His absence means there will be no meeting with Ben Stokes following clashes between the pair since the World T20 final in 2016.Experienced trio Benn, Charles and Narine are also missing from the squad for the three-match series next month despite featuring in Zimbabwe – West Indies failing to make the final after taking one win from their four matches.There is a recall for opener Kieran Powell after nearly three years away, and he is joined by 20-year-old all-rounder Alzarri Joseph in Stuart Law’s first squad.Antigua’s Sir Vivian Richards Stadium hosts the opening two matches with England, before a final match in Barbados on March 9.West Indies training squad in full: Jason Holder (captain), Devendra Bishoo, Carlos Brathwaite, Kraigg Brathwaite, Jonathan Carter, Miguel Cummins, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammed, Ashley Nurse, Kieran Powell, Rovman Powell.last_img read more

Beaton suspended from bowling

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – Cricket West Indies (CWI) has confirmed that the Opinion Report by an Independent Assessor at Loughborough University has found the bowling action of Guyana Jaguars pacer Ronsford Beaton to be illegal and, as such, he has been suspended from bowling in domestic West Indies matches with immediate effect.The assessment revealed that Beaton’s deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under playing regulations.Beaton will remain suspended until such time as his action is found to be legal, either by an Opinion Report from Loughborough University or by an independent analysis from an accredited testing centre, in accordance with the CWI Regulations for Dealing with Suspected Illegal Bowling Actions.He is expected to undergo remedial work supervised by the Jaguars franchise and can apply for a reassessment after modifying his bowling action in accordance with the Regulations.The 27-year-old Beaton was reported for a suspect bowling action during Jaguars’ game against the United States last Monday in the Colonial Medical Insurance Super50 Cup.Beaton’s action was cited by match officials after he bowled eight overs for figures of 0-37 during the game at the Queen’s Park Oval, which the Jaguars won by 13 runs.last_img read more

Council to push academics, philanthropy

first_imgThe Panhellenic Council is set to begin a push to increase its commitment to philanthropy and academics, as it ushers in the new executive board members for the 2010 calendar year.The newly elected board, led by incoming President Laura Redfern and Executive Vice President Hilary Veit, was announced Nov. 23 and will be initiated Dec. 10. Next semester, the council will start reviewing the budget and the amount of money that each programming committee is allotted with a focus on making everything more efficient, Redfern said.“We need to see where there are areas of the budget where funds are being underutilized so we can put them toward other activities,” Redfern said. “Once we recognize how much money we have, then we can expand our programming.”Sorority recruitment is costing less each year despite an increase in membership, Redfern said, which has prompted plans to redistribute funds to philanthropy, marketing and scholarship programming.This year the board, for the first time, offered five Greek scholarships, and the new board plans to add more or increase the amounts from $1,000 to $1,500.“The first year scholarships were a success,” Redfern said. “Our efforts are trying to improve to meet the caliber of Greeks that we had, because there is also [more] need during the recession and more girls who need help paying for their dues.”Ada Del Rosso, incoming vice president of finance, said the executive board should also focus on publicizing the scholarship opportunities and the financial aid options.“We may see fewer people joining sororities next year, but there are ways of getting help, scholarships and financial aid,” Del Rosso said. “I hope in the future we can emphasize the fact that it is a financial cost but it is worth it in the end.”Ayushi Gummadi, who was elected vice president of scholarship, said she also hopes to increase the importance that Greeks place on academics.“I want to encourage scholarship chairs to have a bigger say within each house, and increase chapter scholarship chairs’ involvement with the Panhellenic board,” Gummadi said.The new executive board also plans to increase the emphasis put on philanthropy events for students across the board, by increasing the number of service days held during the school year and moving from a national focus to more service for the local community.“I would like to see us do more for the surrounding community as well, something that would make it a safe philanthropy for students, do something on campus to raise money to help out some kind of local organization that helps out with crime reduction,” Redfern said.The new year also presents an opportunity to better utilize the budget beyond the major events that the council puts up, according to Tracy Moyers, the outgoing vice president of finance for Panhellenic.“I want to encourage the new board to utilize the budget more efficiently,” Moyers said. “I hope to see them make chapter dues and individual member dues more affordable, and also ease in more scholarships.”Moyers said she also hopes the new board will focus on increasing Greek unity on the Row and Panhellenic visibility on campus.“I really hope that they can get the whole Row more involved in things as a whole,” Moyers said. “A lot of times we do great things but they are disjointed with each individual chapter. To move forward, we need to bind together more and sort of have a united front.”The first major event Panhellenic will focus on for the upcoming semester is the annual spring Greek Gala, which will be held in March, Redfern said.last_img read more
