MOL, KHI to Develop Steering Gear with Sensing Capability

first_imgJapan’s Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) and its compatriot Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) have agreed to jointly work on the development of technologies that enhance vessel reliability and energy-saving operation.The project focuses on developing steering gear with new sensing capability and big data analysis. The system will be installed on a very large crude carrier (VLCC), which is under construction at KHI and slated for delivery to MOL.It is intended to develop KHI-made steering gear equipped with sensors that monitor pressure, flow rate, temperature of hydraulic oil, consumed power, and high-speed data acquisition system that has a large storage capacity.The data acquisition system would collect data from the steering gear, as well as other types of information, such as vessel speed, course, engine load and rudder angle, during a voyage.In-depth analysis of this data will lead to improvements in vessel reliability and energy-saving operation. The project is expected to complete by end of March 2021.MOL said that the project is an important step in developing the future intelligence function equipped steering gear, which will contribute to improvement of the vessel’s reliability, maneuverability, and energy-saving operation.last_img read more

This Guy Will Show YouWhat Is A Black Hole In Simple Terms?Top 9 Scariest Haunted Castles In Europe Manchester United have confirmed Angel Gomes has left the club. Angel Gomes set to depart from old trafford after failed talks The 19-year-old starlet has snubbed a new contract at Old Trafford and is now a free agent. A club statement said: “Manchester United can confirm that Angel Gomes has not taken up the offer of a new contract and has, therefore, left the club. “Everybody at Manchester United would like to wish Angel the very best of luck for the future and thank him for his efforts for the club.” Gomes is one of ten United players departing the club on Wednesday after rejecting a reported £25,000 a week plus bonuses deal to remain at Old Trafford. The England Under-20 international has a host of clubs chasing his signature as he now plots his next move. Premier League rivals Chelsea are one of those interested in securing his services, although there could also be plenty of interest from abroad. Attacking midfielder Gomes has been restricted to just six first-team appearances this season. And that lack of opportunity for the ace, viewed as one of the brightest prospects to emerge through United’s academy in years, has convinced him to leave. Gomes had been at Old Trafford since he was six and he became the the youngest player since Duncan Edwards to make his senior debut for the club. Loading… center_img He went on to make 10 appearances in total, with his three starts coming this season in the Europa League. His final game for United was in the 4-0 home win over Norwich in January. The attacker was also the youngest winner of United’s prestigious Jimmy Murphy youth player award in 2017, at the age of 15 years 362 days, after scoring 12 goals in 19 appearances for the U18s. Best pal Mason Greenwood dedicated his goal in United’s win over Brighton to his now-former team-mate. The 18-year-old opened the scoring for the Red Devils in the first half of his side’s 3-0 victory at the Amex after dazzling Lewis Dunk with two stepovers before drilling home. And the striker celebrated his sixth Prem goal of the season by making an ‘A’ sign with his fingers – a tribute to his academy pal. read also:Chelsea make ‘lucrative’ transfer offer to Man Utd’s Angel Greenwood posted a picture of the pose on Twitter to confirm it was meant for his academy mate, captioning it: “A promise is a promise.” Gomes then took to social media to express his gratitude by uploading a snap of the forward celebrating in an Instagram story.

Women’s soccer: Wisconsin finishes season strong with 2-1 win over Rutgers

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team finished their regular season finale with an impressive win over No. 23 Rutgers University Wednesday night at home.Going 3-0-3 in their last six games, Wisconsin looked to extend that unbeaten streak to seven by taking advantage of the sluggish Rutgers offense. Behind two unanswered goals from senior midfielder Rose Lavelle, the Badgers completed their mission and extended the undefeated streak to seven games with a 2-1 victory.Women’s soccer: Badgers record seventh tie of the year with 0-0 draw at IllinoisThe University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team collected their seventh tie of the season on Saturday in their double overtime Read…Wisconsin (8-4-7, 5-2-4 Big Ten) controlled the ball for the majority of the first half, rattling off five shots to Rutgers’ one in the first 20 minutes. In the same amount of time, the Badgers gathered five corner kicks while Rutgers (9-3-6, 4-2-5 Big Ten) could not muster a single corner.Despite being silenced for the entire first half, Rutgers would be the ones to break the scoreless tie on a 40th minute goal by Rutgers senior forward Erica Murphy assisted by the team’s leading scorer, senior attacker Madison Tiernan. Murphy capitalized on the pass that squeaked past a Wisconsin defender and beat UW goalkeeper Caitlyn Clem on a one-on-one before finally netting the strike. The goal was Murphy’s third of the season.On a rainy and cold afternoon, both offenses struggled to create many scoring chances. Despite outshooting Rutgers 7-to-2, the Scarlett Knights would go into halftime with a 1-0 lead. By the end of the first half, the Badgers also had more corner kicks with seven while Rutgers did not collect a single corner.The pesky Wisconsin offense finally got their reward for consistently controlling the ball when freshman midfielder Grace Bahr sent a pass from far outside the box directly to an open Lavelle who then fired a missile past Rutgers goalie Alana Jiminez to tie score at one.“We thought we were creating some stuff in the first half, but we weren’t executing well enough,” head coach Paula Wilkins said. “In the second half, we pushed Rose a little bit harder, and she did what really good players do. She took over the game.”With under nine minutes left in the game, Wisconsin surged downfield and took the lead on a rocket from outside the defender’s box by Lavelle who recorded her second goal of the game to give the Badgers a 2-1 lead. Lavelle’s two scores made her the team’s leading scorer on the season with four.The game-winning goal served as a suiting farewell for Lavelle as she completed her final regular season game at home.“It means a lot,” Lavelle said. “To win it on my last home game is really special. We’ve been fighting these last six games, and I think that’s really indicative of the final stretch of our season.”Wisconsin outshot Rutgers 16-7 and bested the Scarlet Knights in shots on goal 6-3. UW junior forward Sydney McGinnis led the team in shots with five, followed by Rose Lavelle who had four shots with three of them on goal. Lavelle also tallied four points, the most of a Badger in a single game this season.With the win, the Badgers secured the No. 5 seed in the Big Ten Tournament, and will face No. 4 seed Michigan at 8 p.m. on Oct. 30. Wilkins discussed the team mindset going into the conference tournament.“It’s a whole new season,” Wilkins said. “You clear the slate on everything. We’re unbeaten in the last seven games, and I like them going in this direction.”last_img read more

Jaime Barria to return to Angels after successful debut last week

first_img Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter ANAHEIM — Shortly after Jaime Barría picked up the victory in his major league debut, he got a ticket back to Triple-A.Barría, who said he knew his previous start was a one-shot deal to plug a hole in the rotation, is going to get another opportunity on Sunday, when he’ll be recalled for his second start.Manager Mike Scioscia said Barría, 21, made an impression by staying composed in allowing just one run in five innings against the Texas Rangers.“Pitchers are keyed up for their first start and sometimes it takes them out of their game,” Scioscia said. “He stayed in his game and pitched well.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Instead, the Angels might just keep cycling starters between the majors and Triple-A, so they have only five in the majors at one time. The Angels have off days next Thursday and a week from Monday, making it possible to get by with five starters.OHTANI UPDATEShohei Ohtani threw a light bullpen session and then said he feels “pretty good” about being able to pitch, despite a blister that affected him during his last start.“I feel that it (my blister) is recovering and I’m hoping to be able to pitch well in a game by taking care of it on a daily basis,” Ohtani said through his interpreter after Friday’s game.Scioscia said Ohtani is scheduled for a full bullpen session on Sunday. That would probably be the final test before the Angels determine if he can take his next turn, which would most likely be on Tuesday in Houston.In other Ohtani news, the Hall of Fame on Friday announced that it had received the cap Ohtani wore in his major league pitching debut on April 1.ALSOMatt Shoemaker, who is out with forearm irritation, said he’s feeling “really good” and hoping to resume throwing in the next few days. Shoemaker has undergone a battery of tests that showed no new injury. He had surgery last year to relieve pressure on the radial nerve. …Zack Cozart was not in the lineup, with a routine day off, Scioscia said. …Kole Calhoun, who was mired in a 2-for-24 slump, was dropped to eighth in the lineup. He went hitless in three at-bats, with a walk …Martin Maldonado went hitless in three at-bats, his slump extending to 0-for-20…Jo Adell and Brandon Marsh, two of the Angels’ top prospects, hit grand slams in the same game on Friday. Playing for the Angels’ Class-A affiliate in Burlington, Iowa, Adell had four hits and drove in eight runs in a 28-7 victory over Quad Cities. Marsh had seven RBIs.UP NEXTAngels (Garrett Richards, 2-0, 2.60) vs. Giants (Derek Holland, 0-2, 4.60), Saturday, 6 p.m., Fox Sports West, KLAA (AM 830)Related Articles Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros The Angels sent Barría back after that game because they wanted to keep an extra bullpen arm. So far the Angels have not had six starters on the roster at one time, even though much was made of their plan to have a six-man rotation.“It will happen at some point,” Scioscia said.The problem is the starters have been unable to get deep enough in games to give the bullpen a rest, so the Angels have needed to keep an extra reliever or two.Asked if it’s feasible for them to get down to the seven-man bullpen that was originally planned, Scioscia joked: “Right now we probably need an 11-man ’pen.”Even if the Angels could go with a seven-man bullpen, it won’t be easy for that roster move. Keynan Middleton is the only one of the eight current relievers who can be optioned, and he’s the preferred closer now.last_img read more
