Equinor Gathers Metocean Team for US Offshore Wind

first_imgNorway’s Equinor (formerly Statoil) has contracted RPS engineers and scientists from Australia and the US to develop a long-term meteorological and oceanographic (metocean) measurement program for a potential wind farm development off the east coast of the US.RPS will use floating light detection and ranging (FLiDAR) and a suite of other instruments to generate information about waves, wind, turbulence and current conditions.The company will analyse the FLiDAR data it collects for the Equinor site study in tandem with information from its directional wave buoys, current meters and existing comparison data to inform power generation calculations and future turbine array engineering, installation and maintenance planning.Equinor is in the early stages of development of the Empire Wind project offshore New York. Located on a 79,350 acre site secured in a federal auction in December 2016 , the project has the potential to generate up to 1GW of offshore wind power.The company has also expressed interest in acquiring an unsolicited lease area offshore Massachusetts.last_img read more

West Ham stun Chelsea, Aubameyang fires Arsenal revival

first_imgWest Ham rocked Chelsea’s top-four hopes and boosted their survival bid with a dramatic 3-2 win, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck twice as Arsenal climbed back into European contention with a 4-0 thrashing of Norwich on Wednesday. West Ham celebrate their win over Chelsea Chelsea were hoping to take advantage of third-placed Leicester’s 2-1 defeat at Everton earlier in the day, but instead the Blues were beaten for the first time since the Premier League restart. West Ham were denied the opening goal at the London Stadium when VAR ruled Michail Antonio was offside as he lay on the ground while Tomas Soucek slotted home. Willian fired Chelsea ahead from the penalty spot five minutes before half-time after Issa Diop tripped Christian Pulisic. Soucek headed home in first-half stoppage time as West Ham finally scored their first goal since the restart. Antonio put West Ham in front in the 51st minute when he slid in to convert Jarrod Bowen’s cross.Advertisement Head over heels: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice against NorwichAt the Emirates Stadium, Aubameyang moved alongside Jamie Vardy as the Premier League’s top scorer on 19 goals on a night of contrasting fortunes for the Golden Boot contenders.Arsenal registered a third straight win to move up to seventh against a Norwich side ever more resigned to relegation.Canaries keeper Tim Krul did his side no favours by gifting the opener to Aubameyang when he was caught trying to dribble past the Gabon international.Aubameyang’s first saw him reach 50 Premier League goals in 79 appearances – making him the fastest Arsenal player to reach that landmark.“A player that is able to score as many goals as he has done in that short space of time tells you everything about the importance that he has for us,” said Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta.Aubameyang turned provider for Granit Xhaka to make it 2-0 before half-time and was then handed another gift when Norwich striker Josip Drmic teed him up to make it 3-0.Cedric Soares, signed from Southampton in January, made his debut one to remember with a long-range strike nine minutes from time to round off the scoring.– Leicester lose more ground –Leicester are headed in the opposite direction as their winless run since English football’s restart from the coronavirus pandemic stretched to four games.Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson’s penalty gave Everton the perfect start at Goodison Park.Kelechi Iheanacho’s fortunate goal as the ball ricocheted in off his face reduced Leicester’s arrears and they pressed hard for an equaliser in the closing stages.“Our form hasn’t been the best for a period now but we still have it in our hands to achieve what would be a dream for us, getting into the top four,” said Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers.At the bottom of the table, Bournemouth also suffered a huge blow in their battle to beat the drop with a humiliating 4-1 home defeat by Newcastle. Willian’s superb 70th-minute free-kick drew Chelsea level, but it was West Ham who broke away to win it in the 89th minute when substitute Andriy Yarmolenko finished a brilliant counter attack. Chelsea are one point behind Leicester and only two ahead of Manchester United and Wolves as the race to qualify for the Champions League hots up with six games left. “It’s the story of our season. It’s been a good season but there have been so many of these moments,” Chelsea boss Frank Lampard said. “I’m not happy with any of the goals. There were details in the game which we knew but we lost because we didn’t get them right. “It’s why we are fighting for the top four and not first or second. We don’t get things right as much as the big boys do.” West Ham’s crucial first win since the restart moved them three points clear of the relegation zone.

Argonia-Attica to battle Victoria for all the Class 8-man Div. II marbles Saturday

Competing schedules:Argonia-Attica (12-0)A&A 66 Cunningham 20A&A 28 Cedarvale-Dexte 26A&A 74 Central Burden 34A&A 90 Pratt-Skyline 52A&A 60 Caldwell 38A&A 53 South Haven 6A&A 62 Pretty Prairie 6A&A 54 Norwich 6A&A 54 South Barber 8A&A 84 Southern Coffey 40A&A 56 Pike Valley 32A&A 70 Axtell 44 Series history: None. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — If the Argonia-Attica football players have been nervous this week, they sure are not showing it, said Luke Greenwood, A&A co-head coach.“They are extremely excited and focused,” Greenwood said. “We’ve had a great week of practice. I don’t think I would say nerves has been a factor.”Come Saturday morning at 11 a.m. when the Titans walk onto the field that may be a different story. A&A will be trying to bring home a Class 1A Division II eight-man state championship in Newton at Fischer Field. If accomplished, the Titans will be the first Sumner-Harper County football team to win a state championship since Conway Springs did so in 2011.The last time an eight-man team has won a state championship in the area? Attica did it in 1988 winning the 8-man Division II crown. None of the football players were alive then. Needless to say the two communities are excited. A community pep rally is set for tomorrow night. Then the boys will get on a bus at 6 a.m. Saturday after a team breakfast in Harper and travel north to play for all the marbles at 11 a.m. The game should be a doozy. Greenwood said Victoria will be a run-first I formation team that will lull a defense to sleep before initiating the play-action pass.The Knights are physical and they’ve played a meaty schedule. Victoria’s only loss this season was to Central Plains 42-24 in week one. Central Plains is playing for the 8-man Division 1 championship.“I think the key moment of the game will be right off the bat, how we match up with them physically,” Greenwood said. “If we can’t, then it’s going to have to be a tough game and we will have to make plenty of adjustments.”There is no doubt Victoria is the real deal. It is a well-established eight-man powerhouse from western Kansas, having won a state championship five times. The last time came in 2006.The last Sumner County team to make the eight-man state championship game was in 2007 when South Haven played Sharon Springs. That game ended at halftime with the western school winning by more than 50 points.Hopefully, that scenario won’t be a repeat.In the Knights 28-12 victory over Sharon Springs on Friday, they punted and fumbled twice and gave their opponent a short field at the beginning of the game. Both times Victoria held Sharon Springs scoreless.The Knights have a tenacious defensive line – ruled by juniors Brandon Brungardt and Wheaton Hockersmith. They wore Sharon Springs offense down, allowing just one offensive touchdown for a team accustomed to 300 yards of offense and 50 points per game.They will have to do it again.A&A has been averaging over 50 points in every single contest this season but one and last week’s 70 point total was no exception.It was a contest in which the Titans scored on nearly every possession while taking advantage of four turnovers.“The kids have really done a nice job of adjusting,” Greenwood said. “After that first possession in which Axtell drove the length of the field, we kept our heads and adjusted. That was a physical team, but we wore on them and eventually took control in the second half.”ARGONIA-ATTICA VS VICTORIA GAME AT A GLANCE:Argonia-Attica (12-0) vs. Victoria (11-1), Saturday at 11 a.m. at Fischer Stadium in Newton, Class 1A 8-man Div.
