Italy’s Saipem to build 450MW offshore wind farm in northern Adriatic Sea

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:Italy’s Saipem has signed an agreement to build a 450 megawatt (MW) offshore wind farm in the Adriatic Sea in northern Italy, the energy services group said on Tuesday.Saipem has agreed with renewable energy companies AGNES and QINT’X to install 56 wind turbines at two sites off the coast of Italian port city Ravenna, it said in a statement. The project’s contract value could be worth up to 600 million euros ($710 million) for Saipem, said a source close to the matter.“Saipem plans to start a similar (wind) project in Sicily and in Sardinia,” said Mauro Piasere, chief operating officer of Saipem’s XSIGHT division, which offers engineering services for the renewables sector among others.Saipem, a market leader in subsea exploration and construction, has been looking increasingly to offshore wind as part of a move to develop new lines of business to meet a growing client focus on green technologies.Last year it signed an agreement with Abu Dhabi-based Plambeck Emirates to build a 500 MW floating wind farm off the cost of Saudi Arabia.[Stephen Jewkes]More: Saipem to build 450 MW offshore wind farm in Italy Italy’s Saipem to build 450MW offshore wind farm in northern Adriatic Sealast_img read more

first_imgMINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins badly needed their ace back.José Berriós delivered a brilliant outing befitting his two-time All-Star status.Berriós surrendered only two singles over seven innings in his best start in six weeks, Mitch Garver hit the tiebreaking two-run homer in the seventh, and the Twins beat the Washington Nationals 5-0 on Tuesday night in an interleague matchup of teams on postseason tracks.Minnesota’s rotation has been under pressure, with Kyle Gibson weakened by a digestive tract disease and Michael Pineda suspended for 60 games because of a positive test for a banned diuretic. Berriós only heightened fan anxiety with an 8.07 ERA over his previous six starts for the American League Central-leading Twins, who took a five-game lead on Cleveland into the night.The right-hander shut down the Nationals with a machine-like performance that was one big sigh of relief for him and the Twins. Berriós (12-8) struck out four and walked one, his first turn of more than six innings since July 31. CEDAR FALLS — Northern Iowa coach Mark Farley is pleased with the start to the season.

Top shot Tavares Finson thrills

first_img Sub Junior B Sub Junior A Darren Gordon (44) Shoot off win Rajhir DaCosta (44) Raheed DaCosta (43) Junior B Young marksman Roman Tavares-Finson was unstoppable with close-to-perfect shooting, setting the stage with a brilliant 49 of 50 birds, which saw him claim the High Overall Champion spot at the Digicel Inter-School Clay 50 Birds Championship on Sunday at the Jamaica Skeet Club in Portmore, St Catherine. The 13-year-old, who was claiming his first major title, missed just one target on his way to upstaging a very compact field. In the Super Six round, he hit a table-topping 64 birds. The Hillel Academy standout shooter scored 15 in the Super Six to lead his school to a winning score of 215, a seven point advantage over the American International School of Kingston (AISK), which shot 208, and Champion College 204 in third. Jamaica College finished fourth with 176 points. “I have won a couple times, but not as big as this one, I guess it was more of adrenaline happening. I am very happy with the win,” he told The Gleaner. Roman, the son of prominent lawyer and government senator, Tom Tavares-Finson, said the course was a challenging one. “If I thought about it in my head, I wouldn’t have done it, so I just maintained my momentum and concentrated,” he said. The competition saw more than 70 upcoming junior shooters give a good account of themselves, with Jamaica Skeet Club president Khaleel Azan giving them much credit. “I didn’t think we would have more than a high score of 45, Roman shot 49, and this gives me an idea of where we are and how we are really achieving a lot from year to year, and where we go and how we are to overseas standards,” Azan noted. “I think we are getting closer.” He also credited second overall runner-up, Danzel Knight, who bravely shot with a broken hand. Meanwhile, the category winners received $1,500 credit from main sponsor Digicel along with their other prizes. The Super Six top finishers were Roman Tavares-Finson (64), Zachary Chen (58), and third Danzel Knight (58). Jonah Subaran scored 56, followed by Zachary Lazarus and Mark Desnoes 55, respectively. Peter Mahfood hit 52 and Zachary Duncan was the next best with 51.
