Hanhikivi Dredging Works Continue

first_imgMarine construction work on the Fennovoima’s Hanhikivi 1 nuclear power plant project in Northern Finland is moving according to schedule, reports the company.The work, commissioned by Titan-2, is being carried out by Terramare Oy. The two companies signed the hydraulic construction work contract in July 2016.According to Fennovoima, the work at the Hanhikivi peninsula continues: “At the moment, e.g. hydraulic construction and dredging works, injections in the bedrock surrounding the plant area, and construction works of the accommodation village are on-going. Approximately 300 people work at the site daily.”This hydraulic engineering work is part of the plant supplier’s total contract and includes the dredging and hydraulic engineering work for the harbor, the sea route, and the back-up intake channel for cooling water.During the dredging and water construction work in the harbor, Terramare will remove approximately 690.000m³ of dredged material from the seabed and do underwater blasting of approximately 200.000m³. Dredging material is being transported to the marine spoil area about 10 kilometers west of the Hanhikivi headland.Fennovoima concluded that the dredging work will be done 24/7 during the open water period. Giving consideration to the fish spawning season, blasting work can be conducted during the period from May 20th to October 10th.The project is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2018.last_img read more

Di Maria set for PSG medical

first_img Press Association The Argentina international touched down in Qatar late on Sunday night and posed for photos with excited fans at the airport in the country’s capital. Di Maria is expected to undergo tests at the Aspire Academy on Monday. ”Manchester United and PSG are two big clubs and negotiations can be difficult but we are close to the end,” the PSG coach said. United manager Louis van Gaal claimed at the time that he had no idea where his star midfielder was. ”I don’t know where he is,” the United boss said. ”You can ask that every week but I don’t answer that question.” Van Gaal is expected to move quickly to sign a replacement for Di Maria. The Dutchman is interested in Barcelona forward Pedro, who was frustrated by his lack of game time at the Nou Camp last season. If there are no hiccups, Di Maria could complete his transfer from Manchester United to PSG before the end of the day. The 27-year-old was given permission to fly to Qatar for talks with PSG officials after United agreed a 63million euro (£44.3million) fee with the French champions for the midfielder. United signed Di Maria from Real Madrid for £59.7million last summer, but after an encouraging start his form dipped drastically and he only started one of the final 10 games of last season. The former Benfica winger was left unsettled after an attempted burglary on his Cheshire home in February. Since then, the 27-year-old and his family have been living in a city-centre apartment in Manchester owned by former United defender Phil Neville. Di Maria said as recently as June that he wanted to stay at United, but it became apparent that he had his heart set on a move to the French capital in the last couple of weeks. The Argentinian was due to report for duty during the second leg of United’s pre-season tour of the United States on July 25, but failed to show. After United’s 2-0 defeat to PSG in Chicago on Thursday, Laurent Blanc said both clubs were close to striking a deal for the player. Angel di Maria has arrived in Doha for his medical with Paris St Germain. last_img read more

Cricket News Tom Latham creates history for New Zealand in Wellington Test vs Sri Lanka

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Tom Latham, the New Zealand opener, smashed 264 against Sri Lanka in the Wellington Test to put Kane Williamson’s side in a solid position. However, during the course of his innings, Latham created history as he became only the second New Zealand player in history to carry the bat through the innings. The phrase “carrying the bat” refers to a situation in which an opening batsman remains not out at the end of an innings where all the 10 wickets have fallen. Latham’s 264 included 21 fours and one six and it helped New Zealand take a massive 296-run lead after Tim Southee’s 6/68 bowled Sri Lanka out for 282 on the opening day. Latham became the second New Zealand player after Glenn Turner to achieve this feat.Turner became the first New Zealand player to carry his bat when he was unbeaten on 43 against England in Lord’s in 1969. Turner was the last man standing as New Zealand was bowled out for 131 to lose the Test by 230 runs. The New Zealand player became only the third player after Australia’s Bill Woodfull, Bill Lawry and England’s Len Hutton to achieve the feat twice when he carried his bat during his knock of 223 against West Indies in 1972 at Sabina Park, Kingston.Read More | Virat Kohli, Tim Paine involved in war of words in Perth TestLatham became the seventh player to carry his bat while scoring a double century. Bill Brown of Australia was the first one to achieve this feat when he hit 206* against England at Lord’s in 1938. The others to have carried their bat while scoring a double century are Hutton, Turner, Marvan Atapattu, Virender Sehwag and Alastair Cook. Latham’s score of 264 though is the highest by an individual batsman while carrying his bat through the innings.Read More | Nathan Lyon enters elite list, gets praise from Sachin TendulkarThe left-hander, son of former New Zealand allrounder Rod Latham, notched up the sixth-highest individual score for New Zealand in Tests. Brendon McCullum is the only triple centurion for the country, having made 302 against India in Wellington in 2014. Martin Crowe’s 299 against Sri Lanka in 1991 is the next highest followed by Ross Taylor’s 290 against Australia in Perth in 2015. Stephen Fleming’s 274* in 2003 and Bryan Young’s 267* in 1997 all came back against Sri Lanka. last_img read more

Persaud eyeing Group Three battle

first_imgWITH just over three weeks to go before the second national Race of Champions, Group Three competitor Danny Persaud is eyeing a good outing in the group three class with his Mazda Miata.Persaud, one of the strongest contenders at the local and regional level in the Group Three category, believes that there is still a fight to be had here in Guyana, especially come July 2.“What I’ve seen [on social media] and heard is that there are a lot of guys coming out this time around, and I welcome the competition. I’m glad to hear that there are so many guys coming out. It will only make racing more fun,” Persaud said.He continued, “As it relates to my car and its preparation, there wasn’t much work to be done from the last race meet. We had a little bit of handling work and ensuring that we dotted the ‘I’s and crossed the ‘t’s, but I think it will be fine come race day.”“We are really using this as a gauge to the Caribbean Championship. As you know, Paul Vieira is the defending champion for a couple years now and we’ve always had hiccups when we meet him,” the Group Three driver said.He noted however that after the November leg last year, the mechanics had taken the car apart to solve all of its problems, and after the first race of champions, the issues were minimized greatly.While he refused to single out any particular competitor, he noted that he expects a more fierce battle in the Group Three for 2017 and predicted that the local championship will come down to the wire.He is calling on fans to come out and support the event, which is being held at the South Dakota Circuit under the auspices of the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club, (GMR&SC)The event is sponsored by Ansa McAl, Prem’s Electrical, B.M.

AfroBasket: Buhari to Receive Victorious D’ Tigress Today

first_imgOlawale Ajimotokan in AbujaPresident Muhammadu Buhari will today at the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting receive D’Tigress as a mark of recognition to the team for clinching the 2017 AfroBasket Championship in Mali.The team arrived Abuja on Tuesday two days after they defeated Senegal 65-48 in Bamako, to clinch their third AfroBasket Championship.Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung, said the presidential reception is a demonstration of Buhari’s passion for sports development.Team Captain, Alisha Mohammed and President of the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF) Musa Kida, presented the trophy to Dalung last night at a reception at the National Stadium, Abuja.The players presented a signed jersey to the minister as a token.Dalung said the victory will inspire the team to greater heights at the FIBA Women’s World Basketball Championship in Spain next year. He said the victory will justify the controversial sports reforms he introduced in June that produced a new board of the national sports federations.“I am convinced that if we do the right things, we will always get the right results. This victory has paled the weight of criticism we faced,” Dalung said.Mohammed, who spoke on behalf of the team, assured that they would put in great efforts to excel in Spain.A member of the victorious team, Nkechi Akachi, said the tournament was tough, particularly the semi final match against Mali, which Nigeria narrowly won by 48-47.“It was a tough and demanding campaign. The semi final match against Mali could have gone either way. It was not easy when you are playing against the host team, the country, the referee and match commissioner. It was tough,” Akachi who was a member of the team that reached the semi final two years ago in Cameroon observed.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

WBB : Hall breaks out to provide perimeter threat on offense

first_imgElashier Hall looked up and quietly repeated the question to herself, searching for an answer. But after a second of thought, Hall said she still didn’t have a grasp on her recent offensive slump.By the end of her explanation, though, the Syracuse guard decided her struggles didn’t matter in the big picture for the Orange.‘In practice, I’m just getting up a lot of shots, working hard and not making it about myself because obviously it’s a team effort,’ Hall said last Friday. ‘I feel like if Iasia (Hemingway) and Kayla (Alexander) are getting it done then get the ball to them, it’s really not on me.’Though Hall downplayed her importance to Syracuse’s (13-7, 2-4 Big East) success as a team, her play is crucial to the Orange’s chances to win games night in and night out. That much was clear after Hall scored 14 points and keyed a furious comeback victory over Seton Hall on Sunday. While Alexander and Hemingway led the way with 23 and 18 points, respectively, the Orange may have been destined for another Big East loss if Hall hadn’t stepped up to support them on the perimeter.Syracuse’s high-low game can be dominant at times, but for much of the season, it has also become the team’s only offensive option. The backcourt has failed to provide a desperately needed scoring punch, especially with Hall — the Orange’s most experienced guard — losing her scoring touch for long stretches throughout the season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHer latest cold streak saw her score just four points combined in Syracuse’s previous four conference games leading up to its matchup with Seton Hall on Sunday. The worst came against Georgetown on Jan. 15 when Hall went 0-of-13 from the field and failed to score.SU guard Carmen Tyson-Thomas said the entire backcourt has to step up, not just Hall.‘It’s not just one player that’s struggling,’ Tyson-Thomas said. ‘All of us as guards are having trouble getting the ball in the basket right now.’Still, Hall was expected to be the leader and go-to scoring option on the perimeter following Erica Morrow’s graduation.And she appeared ready for the responsibility in Syracuse’s season opener against Long Beach State. Hall led the team with 20 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in an aggressive performance that earned her the praise of head coach Quentin Hillsman and Tyson-Thomas after the game.At times, Hall was the Orange’s only confident scoring threat as it worked through some rust that comes with the first game. On one play, she missed a 3-pointer from the top of the key, but followed her own shot to get the rebound. She then used a jump stop to create space against a defender and banked in a short jumper.But that confidence disappeared during the team’s first four games to reopen Big East play in January. Like Hall, Hillsman didn’t have an answer for her tough times.‘I don’t know. It’s tough to say,’ Hillsman said. ‘You look at the shots she’s getting, she’s getting very good shots, and we need Lacie to continue to take those shots. If I could fix it, it would have been fixed.’Hall fixed that against the Pirates on Sunday.Alexander and Hemingway set the tone in the paint in the first half, with the SU center scoring 14 points on 6-of-7 shooting and the forward adding nine. And Hall gave the Orange a rare option on the outside, registering seven points.Hillsman said after the game that the inside play helped Syracuse build a 55-45 lead in the second half. The head coach said his team finally got back to pounding the ball inside and rebounding, leading to the win.Tyson-Thomas said SU knows it’s a high-low team, and that’s not going to change this season. The Orange is willing to put its fate in the hands of Alexander and Hemingway every night.But it was Hall who came through to lead the Orange to the comeback victory in the final minutes. She hit a big 3-pointer and added a free throw to tie the game and set the stage for the Orange to finish the comeback.It may start with the post game, but Hall’s scoring ability adds another dimension to the offense.‘Just working hard. Getting up more shots in practice and converting them during the games,’ Hall said. ‘I mean Kayla and Iasia do an excellent job with their high-low games, so we try to focus on that a lot because that’s what’s helping us this year and years previous.’ Published on January 23, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Ryne: Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Football: Neuville announces permanent retirement

first_imgSixth-year senior Zander Neuville is no stranger to injuries. In 2017 the walk-on tight end tore his left ACL. The next year, Neuville tore his right ACL in October. Nearly a month ago, Neuville was granted a rare sixth year of eligibility and eyed the September 21 matchup against Michigan as his potential season-opener.Wednesday afternoon, Neuville posted the news via Twitter that his season and thus his football career had come to an end.“Unfortunately, I have sustained another injury, one that means an end to my football career,” Neuville said. “While this is disappointing, I am extremely grateful for the opportunity I had this year and throughout my time at Wisconsin.” Neuville didn’t specify on the type or severity of the injury, just that it would end his time with the Badgers. Neuville played in 42 games and started 14 of them, compiling 10 catches for 84 yards and two touchdowns. Despite these contributions, Neuville’s impact resided predominantly within the blocking portion of the tight end role.The injury tremendously hurts the tight end position, an already wanting group for the Badgers.Juniors Luke Benzschawel and Gabe Lloyd now represent the only two upperclassmen at the position. Unfortunately, both are currently out with injuries.Football: Departure of key talent leaves offensive line, backfield searching for replacementsWeek three of the spring position previews shifts focus from Jim Leonhard’s defense to the offensive side of the football, Read…Lloyd suffered a season-ending leg injury and Benzschawel is still rehabbing from an injury that kept him out of the first two games. Redshirt sophomore Coy Wanner suffered an injury in the spring and did not play a snap in either of his eligible seasons.True freshmen Clay Cundiff and Hayden Rucci have not quite absorbed the blocking schemes and routes that Wisconsin tight ends must master before receiving considerable playing time.Cundiff managed to grab only a few second half snaps in the rout of Central Michigan.This left redshirt sophomore Jake Ferguson with more than enough playing time during the victories over South Florida and Central Michigan while his first-team peers sat for portions of the second half of those games.Football: Badgers continue dominance through two gamesAs a unit, the 2018 Badgers came into their season ranked No. 4 in the nation. A clear preseason playoff Read…Ferguson remains the only tight end with enough experience and a marginally healthy body — he tore a ligament in his thumb during camp — to play consistently with Neuville’s return out of the question. Ferguson recorded three catches in each of the Badgers’ first two games combining for 71 yards. He is the only tight end with a reception this season.The loss of Neuville forces an even greater load on Ferguson. Or, more accurately, a prolonged load on Ferguson as the Badgers struggle to provide replacements for lost talent.Neuville graduated in the winter of 2018 with a biology degree and announced that he is starting medical school next fall. If it serves as any consolation, it appears that his time off the field was well spent.last_img read more

Awogu Backs Team Nigeria to Do Well in Rio

first_imgIn a chat in his office, he said, “A lot of people said we failed in London. I am one of those that think we didn’t fail. If you look at the team, most of our athletes finished in the semi-finals. They didn’t win medals but I see a lot of progression, what could happen is transcending from that semi-final finish into the medal zone this year. If you look at Atlanta ’96, we didn’t expect any medal in football even after losing to Togo here in the last friendly. We still went ahead to win.“We are a team, a country that likes to spring surprises. Wrestling is doing pretty well. Two of our wrestlers, the female ones, are actually in the top three in the world so why not give them a chance? Athletics we may have a few issues but I think we should look at relay and if I were the managers of Blessing Okagbare, I will tell her to focus on the jumps because that is the area where she has the advantage. Here, we are pushing her into athletics, 100 metres, 200 metres, relay, I hope she doesn’t burn out. Sometimes, you need to sit down and look at your structure and look at where you have comparative advantage and stick to it, “Awogu said.Continuing he said: “I heard the minister saying that Nigeria is expecting four gold medals. To me, that will be a great record. I have a feeling we will not come back empty handed like we did in London. The lifters always have ways of springing surprises. Okagbare, I hope will also be able to do us proud. We will be paying special focus on the football team because Nigeria is technically a football country and I hope this year’s selected team will do us proud and move ahead from the last qualification in the finals where they won silver, and probably win us gold. It has been a long time since ’96.”Awogu said in keeping with tradition, SuperSports is to deliver the best quality content. “We are covering virtually everything and we have a couple of dedicated channels, which will be beaming those events live to our audience. The beautiful thing about us is that we are also going ahead with technology because of the timing, which is probably not very convenient with most people. We have the catch up facility, which MultiChoice has provided and customers can always catch up when they wake up in the morning especially to watch the performance of the Nigerian team,” he said.Awogu said SuperSports is sending a full team that will be covering the competition in spite of Zika virus scare. “I know a lot of people would be wondering how we will manage with the Zika scare and it is a major constraint. Even though some athletes are pulling out, we just need to prepare ourselves, take preventive measures and go there to do a quality job. I am sure the Brazilian government would do whatever they can to safeguard participating Olympic athletes and visitors to the games, including the journalists. We have a team following the Nigerian team, especially the football and athletic teams, just like we do with some of these well-established athletes. There will be a couple of magazine shows in place for subscribers apart from the daily highlights. It will be quite innovative,” Awogu assured.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram By Kunle AdewaleAgainst the backdrop of doubts by Nigerians on their athletes to do well at next month’s Olympic Games in Rio, the General Manager SuperSports, Felix Awogu, is however not losing sleep over Team Nigeria; saying they might just surprise a lot of people.last_img read more
