The facility began operations in late May 2019.The 5,400 cbm vessel will be fitted with four 1,350 cbm IMO Type C tanks and utilize a cargo handling system designed and developed by Wartsila.Tim Casey, executive president of LNG for NorthStar Midstream, said: “The construction of this barge will expand our ability to solve the logistics behind delivering LNG to our customers in both an economical and safe manner.“We see increased domestic industries looking to LNG as their future fuel source, and we are extremely excited to be on the forefront of LNG domestic marine transportation.”Todd Thayse, VP and general manager of Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding, added: “Entry into the U.S. LNG transportation vessel market has been a strategic interest of our organization. As we put this project into place, we will bring the expertise of Fincantieri and our designs to the LNG market.“last_img read more

Study finds alcohol labelling `highly deficient’

first_imgOtago Daily Times 22 May 2018Family First Comment: It does make you wonder why governments won’t regulate for this, and why the alcohol industry is so opposed to it.Who’s REALLY in control?!“Regulated mandatory labelling was seen elsewhere, including in the EU, Canada, and the United States, and some of those labels were many times larger than those in this country.”New Zealanders should take “a good long look in the mirror” over the need to improve “highly deficient” warning labels on alcohol containers, University of Otago researchers say.“We’re not doing a very good job,” Tessa Gray, one of the researchers, said.Alcohol labelling “needs to be taken more seriously,” she said.The researchers suggested that current voluntary labelling had not worked in this country.Mandatory standardised labelling – which outlined major alcohol-related risks including those around pregnancy, drink-driving and cancer – was probably required.“We need to provide them [the community] with accurate information,” Ms Gray said.“Marketing material dominates what is on the alcohol container and there is little attention paid to consumers’ right to know the health risks of the product,” she said.READ MORE: https://www.odt.co.nz/news/national/study-finds-alcohol-labelling-highly-deficientlast_img read more

first_imgMbappe at PSGLondon, United Kingdom | AFP |  Paris Saint Germain forward Kylian Mbappe says he rejected an approach from Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger in favour of moving to the French giants.Mbappe spoke with Wenger over the possibility of leaving Monaco to join the Gunners, but instead he decided to return to the French capital.The 18-year-old France international striker grew up in Paris, playing for Monaco before joining PSG on loan last week, with a deal in place for him to make the move permanent next year for a reported fee of £166 million ($215 million, 180 million euros).Mbappe has now revealed Arsenal’s interest, telling the Daily Telegraph: “Yes, I met with Arsene Wenger, who is a great coach.“He has a great reputation here in France, he’s well-respected and knows how to develop young players. This was a real option for me. But, of course, Paris St Germain was the main option.” Mbappe opted to work under PSG coach Unai Emery in a front line also featuring £200 million world record signing Neymar, who made his blockbuster move from Barcelona in August.“We weighed up the advantages and disadvantages of all the clubs but my family told me it had to be my decision and one I needed to make,” Mbappe said.“It also had to be a long-term decision. So it was up to me and I decided to come here in order to develop.” Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Chelsea ‘old boy’ Salah concerns Conte

admin no comments

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is wary of former Blues forward Mohamed Salah as he insisted a heavy travel schedule could be no excuse for a sub-standard performance against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.The Egyptian has made a big splash since returning to the Premier League from Serie A club Roma in the summer, scoring nine goals to lead the scoring charts. “Salah is a good player and is very dangerous,” said Conte in Friday’s pre-match press conference.“He is a technical player, but at the same time is very fast, very strong, very good in one v one.”Salah joined Chelsea in January 2014 but the Egypt international was soon loaned out to Fiorentina and Roma, moving to the Italian capital club on a permanent basis before signing for Liverpool in the pre-season.Victory for Liverpool would see them draw level on 25 points with Chelsea, currently third in the table, and Conte is well aware of the threat posed by Salah.“He’s very good to finish. We must pay great attention, but not only to Salah, also to (Sadio) Mane, (Roberto) Firmino, Philippe Coutinho, (Daniel) Sturridge.“They have a good coach (Jurgen Klopp), they have a good identity. Great organisation, especially offensively. They are very dangerous.”The Italian was reluctant to discuss why the Liverpool hot-shot had left Chelsea given the 25-year-old Salah’s exit pre-dated his arrival at Stamford Bridge but said: “He was very young and I think he developed a lot.” Chelsea’s journey was further complicated when strong winds at Gatwick Airport, south of London, meant the plane needed two attempts to land, with Conte and his squad not getting to bed until about 6:00am (0600 GMT).“To get to your house at 6:00am is not simple,” he said. “To have only one day to prepare a big game, especially to have only one day to rest, is not right.“But at the same time we must be focused on the game, a big game against Liverpool. Don’t find excuses.”Chelsea will be going in search of a fifth straight league win as they aim to reduce a gap to leaders Manchester City that presently stands at nine points.They will kick-off with a familiar-looking Conte on the bench after he shaved off the beard he sported during the international break, deciding he would rather follow the advice of his daughter Vittoria than that of his wife Elisabetta, who had encouraged him to grow it.“I wanted to try a new look, but yesterday my daughter killed me. She said to me ‘Daddy, your look is older with the beard’,” Conte said.“My daughter is more important than my wife.”Share on: WhatsAppcenter_img Chelsea beat Azerbaijan’s Qarabag 4-0 on Wednesday to qualify from Champions League Group C and returned to London on Thursday after a 2,500-mile flight from Baku.Conte has complained repeatedly about the scheduling of this weekend’s fixture given Chelsea have had a shorter recovery period than Liverpool, who drew 3-3 away to Spanish side Sevilla in the Champions League on Tuesday after squandering a 3-0 half-time lead.last_img read more
