First LNG Bunkering Pontoon in North West Europe Developed

first_imgzoom Dutch supplier of liquefied natural gas (LNG) Titan LNG is developing a new solution for safe delivery of LNG to both sea-going and river barges in ports in the Amsterdam – Rotterdam – Antwerp region, Europe’s largest bunkering hub.Following research and development operations, the company has designed and developed the first LNG bunkering pontoon in North West Europe, the Titan LNG Flex-Fueler.The vessel, which boasts a double bottom, double hull with a length of 70 metres, will be fitted with up to four tanks, each with a capacity of 300 cubic metres (cbm).Two cranes will be used for flexible hose guidance, and the discharge capacity range is between 30 and 450cbm of LNG per hour.Scheduled to be officially launched in the first quarter of 2018, Titan LNG Flex-Fueler is capable of loading and unloading via ex-wharf, ex-truck and ex-vessel.The vessel is designed to have a fixed location to supply inland waterway vessels, but can also be navigated to larger sea-going vessels and safely supply LNG while they load or unload their cargo.“It is critical that LNG bunkering infrastructure is developed to facilitate the efficient, cost effective, and safe delivery of LNG to both large and small LNG-fuelled vessels. Currently, truck-to-ship delivery provides the most flexibility, and is the only means of receiving LNG bunkers in the ARA region. However, there is an increase in larger LNG-fuelled vessels coming into the market, which cannot bunker at land-based LNG stations, as the deviation costs are too high or is simply not an option due to draft restrictions,” Niels den Nijs, Commercial Director, Titan LNG, said.The shipping industry is seeing an increase in demand for LNG and bunkering infrastructure in line with MARPOL Annex VI regulations that stipulates the requirement to burn clean fuel (with a sulphur content of less than 0.1%) in Emission Control Areas (ECAs). The industry could also see the implementation of a global 0.5% sulphur limit in ECAs as early as 2020.last_img read more

Pan Ocean Delivers Nearly Double Net Profit

first_imgzoomFor illustration only. Source: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license South Korean shipping company Pan Ocean witnessed almost a double net profit in the second quarter of 2018, compared to the same period a year earlier, driven by a recovery in freight rates.The company’s net profit jumped to KRW 37.3 billion (USD 33 million) from KRW 20 billion reported in the same quarter a year earlier.The result marked a 86.5 percent change, as Pan Ocean delivered its 18th consecutive quarter of profitable sustainability, maintaining the growth trend.Second quarter revenue was up by 7.3 percent to KRW 678.8 billion, compared to KRW 632.5 billion seen in the same period in 2017.In addition, quarter-on-quarter earnings were 20 percent up for sales, while operating and net profit increased by 13.9 and 2.5 percent, respectively. Revenues rose 17.9 percent in the main bulk cargo division and 17.3 percent in the container division, which ran through the rationalization of routes. In particular, sales in the newly launched grain division jumped by 66.7 percent.Pan Ocean explained that the BDI market was in the upward trend and it was based on efforts to strengthen market responsiveness such as risk management and construction of an advanced portfolio.“We will continue to pursue stable growth through preemptive measures such as market forecasts and risk management, while continuing our efforts to secure international competitiveness and expand our business base in new grain business,” a Pan Ocean official said.last_img read more

Bethesda announces new Elder Scrolls game Skyrim

first_imgOver the weekend, Spike TV hosted their annual 2010 Video Game Awards, and as usual, it was a pageant of juvenile immaturity, awkward celebrities pretending to give a fig about gaming, loud, in your face eXtremism and a few new rendered game trailers that didn’t really tell anyone anything they didn’t already know. There was one huge surprise, though. Bethesda used the VGAs as an opportunity to reveal the next Elder Scrolls game, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. And it’s coming out in just eleven months!AdChoices广告Skyrim was announced by Bethesda Softwaorks Executive Producer Todd Howard and short of a pre-rendered teaser trailer explaining the game’s story and setting in the Elder Scrolls ‘verse, there’s not much information short of a release date: the memorable 11/11/11, or exactly 11 months from the game’s official announcement.The big question, of course, is whether or not Skyrim will borrow Oblivion and Fallout 3‘s stiff Gamebryo engine, use the Rage engine recently acquired in the buy-out of id software, or something else entirely.A tweet from Bethesda’s Nick Breckon confirms that it will be a new engine, though. Let’s hope it’s more capable of decent animation and bigger crowds than Gamebryo.Read more at Ars Technicalast_img read more

Samsung Galaxy S4 rumors point to April 2013 release

first_imgWithout a doubt, the best selling Android phone of 2012 will be the Samsung Galaxy S3. And if there was a single Android phone to be seen as a direct competitor for the popularity of the iPhone, the Galaxy S3 would be it. As we wind down 2012 and prepare for another year of exciting gadgetry, it only seems logical that we would start to hear rumors regarding the release of Samsung’s Galaxy successor. Those rumors have begun to suggest an April release date and an impressive spec bump for the inevitable Galaxy S4.A few months back it was reported that Samsung was planning to unveil the Samsung Galaxy S4 at Mobile World Congress in 2013. Given the intense popularity of the phone it seems unlikely that Samsung would do anything other than hold a dedicated event for their next flagship, but the idea that Samsung could announce early in 2013 didn’t seem too far off. On top of this, we reported on Samsung engineers crowdsourcing possible suggestions for features and hardware in the Galaxy S4 back in October. While it seemed likely that the phone was already well into the prototyping stages of build cycle, there was little question that Samsung was making sure we all knew what was coming.What would a Galaxy S4 look like, given the explosive evolution in the smartphone world? Unsurprisingly, sources are claiming a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED with a quad-core, LTE-capable processor. A 13MP camera is also rumored for the phone, which no doubt means a 2.1MP or higher front-facing camera as well. This all falls in line with what has been released by Samsung’s competition since the release of the Galaxy S3, making the phone sound more like an incremental spec increase than a feat of engineering prowess and internal development. Samsung will more than likely build on some of the technology they flirted with in the Galaxy S3, like inductive charging and video streaming via DLNA or Miracast.Despite having only released the Galaxy S3 in July of this year, Samsung is more than likely planning an early 2013 release of the Galaxy S4 in order to get a jump on the iPhone 5S. Apple has been rumored to also be planning an early 2013 release for their next phone, dramatically cutting the typical one year release cycle the company has had with the iPhone since its inception. Since the “S” versions of each iPhone are typically an incremental bump, it would appear that Samsung and Apple are battling to see who can release the next new phone just to get ahead of each other.last_img read more

Google gets one step closer to malwareproofing the Play Store

first_imgThe latest in a series of updates Google has made to the Play Store continues to make the Android ecosystem a safer place, despite detractors who claim the company is slowly erecting a walled garden.Most of the malware that appears on an Android phone happens away from the Google Play Store. Android allows users to side load applications, and offers a clear warning to the user that they are doing so at their own risk. As a result of this freedom, we get things like the Amazon AppStore and the ability to test applications that are still in development.When an app hits the Play Store, it’s under a bit more scrutiny and Google works pretty hard to keep their sandbox clean. A recent decision to make it so apps that are installed through the Play Store can only be updated through the Play Store, looks to further those security measures and keep users safe from potentially dangerous updates.The biggest problem with Android apps that update away from the Play Store is the inability to monitor their behavior. Google’s safeguards no longer apply, and you are often left enabling the same feature that asks you to side load apps in order for these update services to work at all. The developer can release updates that could be asking your phone for different permissions than the ones you originally agreed to when you installed the app. Additionally, if that app developer is somehow compromised your next app update could contain everything needed to scrape your personal information and email it to the highest bidder. It’s a bad idea, and since Google’s app update service does all the heavy lifting for developers it seems really unnecessary.As a result of this new policy, a couple of apps are going to need to adjust how they do things. Facebook, for example, will need to use the Play Store for their app updates. This was a recent change for the company, preparing for the release of their Facebook Home service. It’s unclear how this will change the deployment schedule for Facebook Home, or how the company will respond to Google’s latest policy change. Google and Facebook have struggled in the past in regards to sharing data back and forth between the two companies, and while it is easy to see this as an extension of that struggle the larger issues here surrounding malware really do need to be addressed.last_img read more

Fonseca admits Shakhtar deserved 60 thrashing to Man City

first_imgShakhtar Donetsk boss Paulo Fonseca refused to blame the referee for their devasting 6-0 loss to Manchester City in the Champions LeagueThe Premier League champions were awarded a bizarre penalty after Raheem Sterling kicked the turf and fell to the ground inside the box.Referee Viktor Kassai then awarded City the spot-kick with Gabriel Jesus slotting it home for the first goal of his hat-trick and the club’s second of the game.Sterling would later get on the scoresheet himself along with David Silva and Riyad Mahrez to leave Shakhtar bottom of Group F.“It’s difficult to discuss that after such a result, but, of course, the penalty was ridiculous,” said Foncesa on the club website.“I think everyone saw it … I am by no means saying that we lost because of that. However, of course, that spot-kick was ridiculous for everyone.”Premier LeaguePremier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.

2 arrested in carfentanil bust in SW MiamiDade

first_imgSources said DuPont spent at least 14 years in a Florida prison for two separate incidences, each involving armed robbery.Police said the suspect is the one who sold carfentanil to undercover officers on three separate occasions.Carfentanil overdoses are on the rise in South Florida. Broward County officials announced in November that the drug has been linked to more than 50 deaths.Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle told 7News that crackdowns like this one will continue.She also had a message for anyone who is dealing that drug. “It’s just a matter of time before we find you, and if someone dies because of your dealing with that type of narcotic, an opiate, we are coming after you,” she said.Other neighbors 7News spoke to on Friday said they are relieved to have the subject off the streets, and now hopefully their community is safer.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. According to investigators, DuPont sold undercover officers the drug, leading to a warrant for his arrest. Officials also arrested 29-year-old Tyree Shawon Tyson after finding a substantial amount of the drug inside the house.Both suspects dodged 7News’ cameras after they were put in the back of a squad car.Neighbors in the area are shocked about what is happening in their own backyard. “I just seen the officers and I heard the boom when they preceded to enter the home,” said neighbor Davita Jackson, “and I hope they hurry up at get these drugs off the street.”At one point, officials took seven dogs off the property.Michael Fleneury said he knows the family that lives in the house. “Good people … quiet. I’m surprised; the FBI and all of this is beyond me,” he said.However, another neighbor had a different take on the suspects. “Bad neighbors. We have problem with people,” he said. “They have a lot of people coming in and out.”The house is just feet away from a park and a school, and neighbors said the scene unfolding is terrifying. “Kids play out here all the time,” Ubau said. “And then this is a school, you know, the kids coming out of school and anything, there could be a shooting. It’s dangerous out here.” WEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) – FBI investigators arrested two men in Southwest Miami-Dade for their alleged involvement in selling a drug more potent than heroin, Friday.Officials have been watching one of the subjects, identified as 45-year-old Omega Demetrius DuPont, for quite some time and on Friday, made their move in the case at a house near Southwest 171st Street and 104th Avenue.Authorities said DuPont, was selling carfentanil, which only takes a small dose to affect the user and can even lead to death. The synthetic drug is potent enough to tranquilize elephants and serves as a powerful painkiller. It is also used on cancer patients, but the difference between a therapeutic dose and fatal dose is very small.The scene, along Southwest 171st Street was still roped off as things began to wind down, Friday evening. Investigators wore hazmat suits due to the severity of the drug.“Carfentanil is 10,000 times more potent than morphine,” said Miami-Dade Police Detective Dan Ferrin. “Carfentanil is used as a tranquilizer for animals.”Investigators focused on a greenhouse on the block.7’s Skyforce HD hovered over the scene as Miami-Dade Police officers and FBI investigators carried evidence out of the house all day Friday. “They say it was an old drug house,” said neighbor Maritza Ubau. last_img read more

Silicon Valley economically strong despite crippling cost of living

first_imgLiving at the center of the tech universe? Well, I have some good news and some bad news.The good news is that Silicon Valley is thriving economically, generating new technology and good jobs. The bad news is that, for all its world-changing innovation, it’s becoming an even worse place to live.”We’re a massively dysfunctional region,” said Russell Hancock, president and CEO of Joint Venture Silicon Valley. The struggles are revealed in the latest annual assessment of the area, the 2019 Silicon Valley Index, which his nonprofit published Wednesday.”We’ve got the worst transportation in the nation, and we’re not doing a single thing about it. We’ve got the highest housing costs in the nation and we don’t seem to be doing anything about that, either,” Hancock said. One result: For the third year in a row, more people left the area in 2018 than arrived, he said.Enlarge ImageVenture capital exploded in Silicon Valley and San Francisco in 2018. Joint Venture Silicon Valley It’s a profound quandary for residents of Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area more broadly. No place is perfect, but the problem puts sand in Silicon Valley’s economic engine. Companies have difficulties attracting and retaining employees who blanch at the prospect of multimillion-dollar mortgages and soul-sucking commutes. Facebook, Apple and Google can compensate with high salaries, but that doesn’t help the teachers, police officers, waiters and others not on a tech-industry budget, and it means kids have a harder time getting started without wealthy parents.”The irony is we invented the technology that created the problem,” Hancock said. Computerization has replaced armies of assistants, junior staffers and service personnel. Joint Venture Silicon Valley, which has regional mayors, businesspeople and educators on its board, has tracked Silicon Valley’s social, economic and business trends since 1995. It counts a range of cities in its definition of Silicon Valley stretching from just south of San Francisco all the way southeast to Gilroy, the self-described garlic capital of the world. It’s now publishing many San Francisco statistics, too, since the city has become part of the tech hub.Among the findings of the 2019 index:About 36,000 new jobs came to Silicon Valley between the second quarters of 2017 and 2018, a 2.2 percent increase to nearly 1.7 million. The average income is $140,000, more than double the US average of $68,000.Silicon Valley home prices surged 21 percent from 2017 to 2018.Silicon Valley home prices surged 21 percent from 2017 to 2018. Joint Venture Silicon Valley Median home prices — the cost for which half of the area’s homes were more expensive and half were less expensive — rocketed up 21 percent from 2017 to 2018, reaching nearly $1.18 million. In 2000, it was about $700,000. For comparison, the median US home price was $221,000 in 2018.The average time spent commuting has increased 20 percent from 2007 to 2017, which means the commuter spends 43 hours more each year in transit. For San Francisco, the increase was slightly less at 15 percent.For Silicon Valley, 6.5 percent now are “megacommuters” who spend three hours in transit. That’s up from 3 percent in 2011.Silicon Valley "megacommuters" who need at least 90 minutes to get to work are on the increase.Silicon Valley “megacommuters” who need at least 90 minutes to get to or from work are on the increase. Joint Venture Silicon Valley Women account for 28 percent of employees at the 10 largest tech companies, but only 19 percent of their technical or leadership staff.Infant care and preschool costs increased between 30 percent and 57 percent from 2012 to 2018, depending on the age of the child and the type of school. The average 2018 preschool cost, for example, increased from about $11,000 to $15,000.Overall, about 20,000 more people from out of the country arrived in Silicon Valley than left in 2018. The opposite was true for the US, where departures were about 23,000 more than arrivals. The net population dropped about 2,000 in 2018. “Immigration is our lifeblood. There is no Silicon Valley if there is no immigration,” Hancock said.More left Silicon Valley in 2018 than arrived.More left Silicon Valley in 2018 than arrived. Joint Venture Silicon Valley Since 2000, the percentage of voters registered as Democrats wavered slightly between 45 and 50 percent, but the number of Republicans dropped from about 30 percent to 17 percent while the number of independents increased from 18 percent to 33 percent.Silicon Valley likes its electric vehicles. Cumulative sales have risen to at least 48,000 through 2018 — at 18 percent of the state’s total sales, though the true number is likely higher since the state can’t count EV sales to wealthier customers who aren’t eligible for rebates. Nissan and Chevrolet claim 22 percent each of those sales and Tesla 21 percent.Homes and businesses in the area have installed a total of 481 megawatts of solar energy generation capacity through 2018.And venture capital investments surged from 2017 to 2018. In Silicon Valley, the increase was 31 percent to about $19 billion, but San Francisco outpaced that, nearly tripling to $31 billion.”It’s an amazing economy. There’s no other place that creates opportunity as we do,” Hancock said. “The nation’s political capital is Washington, DC, the financial capital is New York, we have the entertainment capital in Hollywood. Silicon Valley will always be the capital of innovation. It’s always where we push the boundaries and disrupt the existing industries. I don’t see anything stopping that.” Share your voice 25 Comments Tags Tech Industry Venture Capitallast_img read more
