SHI bags LNG carriers order for Celsius Tankers

first_imgSouth Korean shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries booked an order from Copenhagen-based Celsius Tankers for two liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers, securing an option for further two vessels. The vessels will have the capacity to transport 180,000 cubic meters of the chilled fuel, and are priced at $187 million each, SHI said on Friday.The LNG carriers, first such vessels for Celsius Tankers, would be equipped with Mark-Ⅲ Flex type containment system with re-liquefaction capability to lower the boil-off rate.SHI further noted it will equip the vessels with environmental and fuel-saving technologies including an optimized hull design and propulsion.The Celsius LNG carriers will be the world’s first to be equipped with Samsung’s air lubrication system SAVER Air, the company said in its statement.It sprays air at the bottom of the ship to form air layer between the hull surface and sea water to reduce frictional force.SHI has previously applied the technology in 23,000 TEU mega containership order for MSC in 2017.According to Clarksons Research, gas carrier and containership newbuilding orders are set to increase. Strong LNG carrier spot rates and increasing usage of LNG as fuel as well as gas demands in power generation point at strong LNG carrier newbuilding market for years to come.Including 37 this year total of 194 LNG carriers are to be ordered within the next five years. A representative from Samsung Heavy said the company is looking to continue securing LNG carrier orders with more available slots.SHI’s new order total for 2018 now stands at 31 vessels and $3.3 billion, which include 7 LNG carriers, 8 containerships, 13 tankers, and 3 special purpose ships.last_img read more

Pope warns US bishops of gay marriage lobby

first_img Share Share Sharing is caring! Pope Benedict XVI waded deep into U.S. campaign politics Friday, urging visiting U.S. bishops to beef up their teaching about the evils of premarital sex and cohabitation, and denouncing what he called the “powerful” gay marriage lobby in America.As debate over health care coverage for birth control rages in the United States, Benedict said there was an urgent need for Catholics in America to discover the value of chastity — an essential element of Christian teaching that he said had been subject to unjust “ridicule.”Benedict has long championed what the church calls “traditional” marriage between men and women, as well as opposition to premarital sex and fidelity within marriage. But his strong comments to visiting U.S. bishops took on particular significance given the culture wars that have erupted in the U.S. this campaign season.U.S. bishops are currently locked in an election year battle with the Obama administration over federal funding for birth control.In addition, bishops have been at the forefront of the campaign against same-sex marriage, with at least five U.S. states scheduling ballot measures on the issue in coming months. Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the head of the U.S. conference of bishops and archbishop of New York, unsuccessfully lobbied against the legalization of gay marriage in his state.The 84-year-old pope acknowledged his comments might sound anachronistic or “countercultural,” particularly to the young. But he told bishops to not back down in the face of “powerful political and cultural currents seeking to alter the legal definition of marriage.”“Sexual differences cannot be dismissed as irrelevant to the definition of marriage,” he said.He also denounced what he called the failure of priests and bishops to instruct Catholics in core church teachings on human sexuality, saying many Catholics seem unaware that living together outside of marriage was “gravely sinful, not to mention damaging to the stability of society.”The entire Christian community, he said, must recover an appreciation of the virtue of chastity.Cath News Tweetcenter_img 25 Views   no discussions FaithLifestyle Pope warns US bishops of gay marriage lobby by: – March 12, 2012 Sharelast_img read more

Solskjaer to axe misfiring Man Utd flop

first_img Lingard failed to record a Premier League goal or assist in the whole of 2019. Loading… Jesse Lingard is facing the Manchester United axe. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and assistant Mike Phelan were so annoyed by his display in the 3-1 home loss to Manchester City on Tuesday that they hauled him off at half-time. Lingard, 27, was anonymous as toothless United were mauled by their bitter rivals in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg. Solskjaer has publicly protected Lingard during his year-long dip in form. But after United fell 3-0 behind at half-time against their noisy neighbours, his patience snapped. It is understood Phelan was particularly vocal about Lingard’s inability to follow instructions. There were cheers as Lingard’s substitution was announced to the crowd — and it is likely he will be replaced by Juan Mata for Saturday’s visit by Norwich.Advertisementcenter_img Read Also:Inter Milan make move for Man United defender Solskjaer had claimed Lingard was getting back to his best — despite him having an awful game in the 2-0 away defeat to Arsenal on New Year’s Day. He was subbed after 58 minutes at the Emirates.

Cricket News Virat Kohli can’t score a run against this Australian pacer – Find out who

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Virat Kohli has amassed plenty of records in his playing career. The Indian cricket team skipper has scored plenty of runs in all conditions and has established himself as one of the best batsmen in the modern-era. Ahead of the Test series against Australia, Kohli was tipped to repeat the dominance in the 2014/15 season in which he smashed 692 runs at an average of 86 with four centuries, including two in the same Test in Adelaide. However, he was dismissed cheaply in the first innings, the first time he was dismissed for a low score at a venue where he has done brilliantly across all formats.On closer inspection, Kohli’s failure in the first innings points to a deeper issue. The Indian skipper has struggled against this particular bowler. So much so that he has not managed to score a run against him. The bowler is young Australia pacer Pat Cummins. The Adelaide failure comes close to the previous series between both the sides in India in 2017, where Cummins got the better of Kohli on a flat wicket in Ranchi.Read More | Pujara’s milestones with Dravid is the mother of all coincidencesThe Ranchi Test was Cummins’ first in Tests after a gap of six years. The young pacer, who had made a sensational debut in the Johannesburg Test against South Africa in 2011, could not play a Test for many seasons due to a combination of back injuries. However, in Ranchi, Cummins made a comeback and he impressed with his pace and variations on a placid deck.Read More | Nathan Lyon concedes unwanted world record, enters this double centuryAustralia had reached 451 thanks to a century from Steve Smith and India made a strong start by reaching 223/2. Australia took the second new ball in the 80th over and Cummins came into the attack. Cheteshwar Pujara flicked a full ball to deep midwicket and Glenn Maxwell put in a great dive to save a boundary. Cummins’ first ball to Kohli was a full ball outside off and the Indian skipper edged it straight to second slip.Kohli did not play in Dharamsala due to a shoulder injury and in Adelaide, he squared up against Cummins again. However, after safely playing two balls, Kohli was again lured into the drive by a full ball outside off but this time, Usman Khawaja dived full length to his left to take a stunning one-handed catch.In total, Cummins has bowled four deliveries at Kohli, taken his wicket twice and not conceded a single run. The Indian skipper, for the moment, literally cannot score a run against Cummins. last_img read more

Lacrosse hits the road for series with Oregon, SDSU

first_imgThe No. 9 women’s lacrosse team (9-3, 3-0 MPSF) is set to play Oregon (7-5, 3-1) and San Diego State (8-4, 2-2) in a road series this weekend.After dropping two straight road contests to Cornell and Stony Brook, the Trojans are coming off of three straight victories over Ohio State (16-7), Fresno State (21-5) and Cal (21-4).The recent win streak comes thanks to a Trojan scoring surge which featured 58 goals scored by 25 different scorers. Two of those scorers, senior Michaela Michael and freshman Kaeli Huff, earned MPSF Offensive Player of the Week and Rookie of the Week for their step-up play against Cal and Fresno State. After a six-goal performance against Ohio State, Michael took less than 20 minutes to score six goals against Cal and just five minutes to score a hat trick in a four-goal performance versus Fresno State. In the past two games, the senior netted 10 goals, grabbed 17 draw controls and added an assist, a ground ball and a caused turnover.Huff, meanwhile, followed in Michael’s footsteps with a five-goal game of her own, adding three ground balls, two caused turnovers and a draw win over Fresno State.Along with Michael and Huff’s play heating up, the Ducks and Aztecs will have to watch out for a Trojan defense that forced 32 turnovers and allowed just 16 goals over the past three games.USC will travel to Eugene, Oregon first to play an Oregon team that has played poorly in recent outings, especially on the offensive side of the ball. After going 5-1 in the first six games, the Ducks are 2-4 in their past six, allowing 77 opposing goals to slip through.The Ducks’ primary scoring threats are sophomore attacker Shannon Williams (37 goals, 18 assists) and senior midfielder Bella Pyne (30 goals, 11 assists), while Cambi Cukar acts as Oregon’s primary distributor with 28 assists. Despite playing the same number of games as USC, Oregon has turned the ball over 25 more times and caused 12 fewer turnovers. The Ducks could give the Trojans difficulties not just in the home field advantage, but also in ball movement as Oregon leads the assist battle 83-77 over USC.After tonight’s matchup in Oregon, USC will travel to San Diego on Saturday to play an SDSU team that is 9-2 in its past 11 games.Although the Aztecs have been porous on defense in 2017 (10.7 goals allowed per game), their offense can put the ball in the back of the net with ease (12.75 goals scored).While USC relies on a couple of primary scorers to carry the team, San Diego State has a more balanced attack with six players scoring 13 or more goals this season.With MPSF playoffs just three weeks away, the Trojans have just five games left to cement a national title campaign.last_img read more
