Drax and Mitibushi partner on BECCS project

first_imgThe pilot, that will test MHI’s carbon capture technology, will capture approximately 300kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) a day, therefore, aligning with Drax’s journey towards being a carbon negative company by 2030.“Our plans to develop ground-breaking BECCS at the power stations in North Yorkshire will help boost the UK’s economy following the coronavirus crisis and support the development of a zero carbon industrial cluster in the Humber region – delivering clean growth and protecting thousands of jobs,” explains, Will Gardiner, Drax Group CEO.Two of MHI’s proprietary solvents will be tested at the plant, one of which – KS-1™ Solvent – is already being used at 13 commercial plants delivered by MHI, including the world’s largest post combustion carbon capture facility in Texas.“We are very proud to be part of the BECCS pilot project with Drax. We firmly believe that our carbon capture technology would be able to contribute to the UK’s zero carbon target in a material way,” said Kenji Terasawa, President & CEO, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engineering. “This is an exciting collaboration between Drax and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries which has the potential to further the development of technology which could help the UK achieve net zero greenhouse gas emission by 2050 and contribute to the post-covid economic recovery.”last_img read more

Flight delay firm expects busy week from £100m BA claims

first_imgA bank holiday weekend of delays and cancellations could cost British Airways £100m in compensation payments to passengers.Flight compensation specialist Bott & Co, which has fought a series of high-profile test cases to establish passengers’ rights to payments, said around 800 flights a day were affected by the IT crash causing planes to be grounded.The firm said passengers will be entitled to amounts ranging from 125 euros to 600 euros becayse flights were cancelled within seven days of the departure date. The law exempts passengers from compensation if the delay was caused by ‘exceptional circumstance’, but the firm said this was unlikely to apply in this instance. The firm also estimated an extra £50m could be due for care and assistance including hotel accommodation for stranded passengers and additional expenses such as couriers for baggage.Coby Benson, flight delay legal manager at Bott & Co, said: ‘The specific criteria for amounts and delay lengths depend on whether alternate flights were offered or not and how long the delay ultimately lasted for.‘BA can’t get away with refunding passengers and hoping that’s the end of the matter – they are obliged to provide compensation under Regulation 261/2004 and we’re preparing for a busy week helping passengers recover that compensation.’BA chief executive Alex Cruz said today that all the airline’s IT systems are up and running and the company is operating a full flight schedule at Heathrow and Gatwick. Cruz said two-thirds of the 75,000 passengers affected would have reached their final destination by the end of Monday.The company said the problems were caused by an ‘IT outage’ and ‘power surge’ on Saturday and it ‘absolutely profusely’ apologised for the event.Cruz said: ‘We are absolutely committed to making sure we fulfil our obligations, particularly from a passenger compensation point of view.’He added the company’s website had details of passengers’ rights and how they could access them.last_img read more

Norton Rose Fulbright lays off IT staff

first_imgInternational firm Norton Rose Fulbright has laid off members of its IT team, after deciding to withdraw from the government’s furlough scheme at the end of the month. The firm said the redundancy consultation process had begun before the Covid-19 crisis hit.Five business services staff have lost their jobs in a drive to improve efficiency and reorganise the firm’s global IT function. Meanwhile, secretaries and other business services team members who were furloughed will return to work from July.Norton Rose Fulbright will reopen its London office on 6 July on a restricted basis. However, staff will receive $300 for home office equipment, as the firm prepares for more remote working.A spokesperson for the firm said: ‘Based on the generally positive experience most people have had of working from home, the majority of our people would like to have more flexibility in their working arrangements in the future. In future, over half our people in EMEA would like the flexibility of working from home some of the time and a third would like to do so most of the time.’Earlier this year the firm introduced a temporary flexible working scheme, deferred partner distributions, and delayed staff salary rises and bonuses. However, the firm said activity levels ‘have remained resilient’ and some parts of the business have been being busier than before. The firm has now decided to pay bonuses in full in two parts: half in July and the other half in October.last_img read more

Wrestlemania’s Biggest Turns

first_imgWrestleMania has seen some of the biggest shocks and twists over the years. Perhaps none bigger then Seth Rollins cashing in the MITB to win the World Heavyweight Title to close out Wrestle Mania 31. Others may consider the Undertaker losing to Brock Lesnar the year before as the biggest shock. Most will tell you that Stone Cold turning heel at WrestleMania 17 will forever be the largest shock / turn of all time, not just in WrestleMania history, but Wrestling history!While it would be impossible to put them in order from most important to least, I thought it would be fun to list them, simply in chronological order. While not every Mania is represented on this list, most are. Enjoy!WrestleMania One – Rowdy Roddy Piper and Cowboy Bob Orton Jr. simply leave Mr. Wonderful Paul Orndorf laying in the ring after the loss. It leads to Mr. Wonderful going on a large run as a face over the next year, before once again turning heel on Hogan.WrestleMania III – Andre The Giant turning heel set’s up the main event, however, one must never overlook Brutus Beefcake turning face and becoming “The Barber” at this same event.WrestleMania IV – Bret Hart attack’s Bad News Brown and destroys his trophy after the 20 man battle royal. Bret Hart goes on to become one of the most popular wrestlers of all time.WrestleMania V – Rick Martel breaks up the highly popular and former champion tag team Strike Force when he turns on Tito Santana by refusing to tag in, and walking away from the match. Martel goes on to become “The Model”.WrestleMania VI – Andre The Giant fights his last match and then promptly punches Bobby Heenan in the face to hear the cheers of 67,000 strong in attendance one more time before calling it a career.WrestleMania VII – Queen Sherri turns on Macho Man Randy Savage after he loses his career match against The Ultimate Warrior. Elsewhere, Miss Elizabeth shows up to fall in love with Savage once again while Sherri ends the night with The Million Dollar Man.WrestleMania VIII – Behind the curtain, Jake the Snake Roberts holds up Vince McMahon and promptly leaves the WWE right after his match.WrestleMania IX – Hulk Hogan shows up after the main event and defeats Yokuzna for the WWF title, less then two minutes after he won it.WrestleMania X – Mr. Perfect turns back to heel and DQ’s Luger against Yokozuna in the title match.WrestleMania XI – Yokozuna returns from exile to help Owen Hart become one half of the WWF Tag Team Champions.WrestleMania 13 – The famous double switch as Hart turns heel while the Stone Cold Era begins!WrestleMania 14 – Mike Tyson double crosses Shawn Michaels while raising the hand of the new WWF Champion, Stone Cold Steve Austin.WrestleMania XV – Chyna leaves the corporation to rejoin DX, only to moments later once again join the Corporation as he and HHH double cross DX.WrestleMania 2000 – Vince McMahon turns on The Rock to help his son in law HHH retain the WWF Championship.WrestleMania X7 – The unthinkable happens as Vince McMahon, for the second straight year, screws the Rock and joins forces with Stone Cold Steve Austin to help Austin win the title from The Rock.WrestleMania X8 – The Outsiders attack and turn on Hulk Hogan following his epic loss to The Rock.WrestleMania XIX – Kurt Angle shakes the hand of a shaken Lesnar at the conclusion of the main event. Not really a turn, but Angle did come back as a face months later following his neck surgery.WrestleMania XX – Trish Stratus slaps Chris Jericho and swaps spit with Christain, a turn no one saw coming!WrestleMania 29 – Not exactly a huge shock, but Big Show turns on his partners Randy Orton and Shameus as they are defeated by The Shield. WrestleMania XXX – Not exactly a turn, but one hell of a shock when Brock Lesnar ends the Streak of The Undertaker.WrestleMania 31 – WrestleMania has a gigantic shock for the second straight year as Seth Rollins cashes in the MITB to win the title over Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar.

Mak Itam, Lokomotif Uap Legendaris Yang Jadi Ikon Wisata Sawahlunto

first_imgLokomotif uap “Mak Itam” Mak Itam, demikianlah julukan untuk lokomotif uap E1060 yang saat ini ‘kembali’ beroperasi Sawahlunto, Sumatera Barat. Penyebutan Mak Itam sendiri bagi masyarakat Minangkabau bukan hanya pada lokomotif tipe tersebut, melainkan seluruh lokomotif kereta api dan tidak hanya lokomotifnya melainkan kereta itu sendiri disebut Mak Itam.Baca juga: Di Sawahlunto, Ternyata Juga Ada Museum Kereta ApiKabarPenumpang.com merangkum dari berbagai sumber dan mendapatkan bahwa, Mak Itam E1060 adalah buatan Hartmann Chemnits Jerman tahun 1865. Mak Itam adalah satu-satunya lokomotif uap yang masih berfungsi dan berada di Sawahlunto. Lokomotif ini sekarang beroperasi sebagai salah satu angkutan wisata dan pernah berada di Ambarawa tahun 1997 untuk perawatan dan perbaikan yang kemudian pada akhirnya 3 Desember 2007 silam Mak Itam kembali kerumahnya di Sawahlunto. Saat itu, sebenarnya bukan hanya untuk perbaikan dan perawatan melainkan untuk membantu lintasan bergigi di Ambarawa.Sayangnya gigi lokomotif Mak Itam ini tidak cocok di rel kereta Ambarawa sehingga harus dilepas. Padahal tindakan melepas gerigi lokomotif ini mestinya tidak terjadi, apalagi diketahui geografis Sumatera Barat yang berlembah dan berbukit.Tak hanya itu, Mak Itam juga sempat menjadi pajangan museum kereta api Ambarawa di antara 21 koleksi lokomotif uap lainnya. Pada awal masa kehadirannya di Sumatera Barat, lokomotif uap ini memiliki tugas untuk menarik atau mendorong rangkaian gerbong-gerbong dengan muatan batubara dari Sawahlunto ke Emmahaven atau Teluk Bayur di Padang.Mak Itam sendiri sudah pernah melintas di jalur yang ada di Sumatera Barat. Mak Itam ini juga tak hanya sebagai angkutan barang kereta api melainkan juga mengangkut penumpang. Lokomotif ini mampu beroperasi hingga tahun 1984 dan perlahan pengabdiannya sebagai angkutan berakhir secara perlahan.Sejak tahun 1950, Dinas Kereta Api (DKA) kemudian memodernisasi teknologi perkeretaapian dari uap ke diesel yang dianggap lebih efisien. Memang aktivitas lokomotif ini pensiun dari tugasnya yang membawa gerbong puluhan meter dengan isi batubara atau barang lainnya.Baca juga: Gandeng Belanda Lestarikan Kereta Jadul, PT KAI Optimis Museum Ambarawa Jadi Yang Terbesar di AsiaTetapi, aktivitas kerja mesin uap yang unik dengan tampilan klasik menjadikan lokomotif uap selalu mendapat perhatian. Memang Mak Itam sudah tak lagi beroperasi mengangkut batubara, kini fungsinya lebih ke wisata dengan menyusuri jalur Sawahlunto ke Muarokalaban (PP) dan melalui terowongan atau lubang kalam yang memiliki panjang 830 meter.Bahkan lokomotif E1060 atau Mak Itam ini diusulkan untuk menjadi cagar budaya. Ini dikarenakan Mak Itam memiliki sejarah adanya aktivitas tambang batubara yang dikelola Belanda pada masa itu.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedDi Sawahlunto, Ternyata Juga Ada Museum Kereta Api23/11/2017In “Destinasi”NIS 171 – Konsep Lokomotif Futuristik Hindia Belanda untuk Rute Semarang-Yogyakarta24/07/2019In “Featured”D52, Lokomotif Uap Modern Pasca Kemerdekaan Indonesia08/01/2018In “Darat”last_img read more

The Argos enter the tournament as the No. 6 seed and will play three round robin games to try and advance to Tuesday night’s GSC Championship game at 6:00 p.m.GSC TOURNAMENT HISTORY: West Florida is searching for its first GSC Tournament Championship since 2007 and looking to improve upon a 1-2 showing in last year’s tournament as the conference’s No. 1 seed… UWF is an even 22-22 in GSC Tournament history and have reached the semifinals eight times… This will be the ninth consecutive GSC Tournament appearances for the Argos, and the only other clubs to have a streak that long includes Delta State (24 consecutive appearances) and Alabama Huntsville (9)… UWF owns a 5-8 record in the GSC Tournament since 2013, and two notable postseason performers include Chase Kiefer (10 career GSC Tournament games, .324 batting average, 1 HR, 5 RBI) and Walker O’Connor (1-1, 20.1 IP, 3.98 ERA, 8 K, 2 BB)… Despite a sub-.500 record in GSC Tournament action over the past four years, UWF owns a strong 3.46 team ERA in GSC Tournament play since 2013. AGAINST THE POOL: The Argonauts face North Alabama, West Alabama, and Mississippi College in round-robin play of the Gulf South Conference tournament… West Florida went a combined 6-3 against those teams during the 2017 regular season… Individual leaders against include Walker O’Connor, who posted a 2.53 ERA, and Ladeavon Matthews and Brandon Harmon, who each own a .406 batting average against the Lions, Tigers, and Choctaws… Robert Lopez and Matt Sullivan are hitting .393 and .381, respectively as the team owns an impressive .318 batting average in those nine games collectively… UWF has posted a 3.65 team ERA against those three teams this season while tagging the opposing pitching for a 5.20 ERA… West Florida is a combined 97-72 all-time against North Alabama, West Alabama, and Mississippi College. MATTHEWS NAMED ALL-GSC: UWF right fielder LadeavonMatthews was named an All-Gulf South Conference Second Team Selection after leading the team with leads a .356 batting average, 11 doubles, and a .486 slugging percentage… Matthews’ four home runs and 30 RBI are both second on the team… On March 14, Matthews grabbed GSC Player of the Week honors after hitting three home runs with six RBI in a three-game sweep of West Georgia… Among the GSC, Matthews is 12th in batting average, 16th in total bases, and 15th in doubles… Matthews is the 113th All-GSC honoree in UWF baseball history… Most recently, the Douglasville, Georiga native went 7-for-9 in UWF’s doubleheader sweep of Lee on last weekend…  The performance against the Flames included a career-high five hits in the series opener and he is one of just five GSC players with a five-hit performance this season.BLONDES HAVE MORE FUN: Several members of the UWF baseball team have bleached part or all of their hair, hoping to pull off something somewhat similar to Puerto Rico’s World Baseball Classic team did in March… The entire Puerto Rico WBC team died their hair blonde, and after that, the team won each of its first seven games of the WBC before falling to the United States 8-0 in the WBC Championship on March 22. FOUR WOULD BE NICE: With four wins, UWF would not only solidify its second-ever GSC Championship, but the Argos would extend their streak of consecutive 30-win seasons to nine… UWF’s streak of eight-straight 30-win seasons is the longest active streak in the GSC.AWAY FROM THE SPOON: West Florida posted a 13-14 record at home this season, giving UWF its first sub-.500 record at Jim Spooner Field since Mike Jeffcoat took over as head coach… However, on the road, the Argonauts have made up for lost ground with a 13-8 record… The Argonauts are hitting .300 as a team on the road and are led by Nick Kerkmann (.379 road average)… Justin Ambrosino and Chase Kiefer have 25 and 20 RBI on the road, respectively… Steve McClellan owns a 1.08 ERA in road games this season to lead the bullpen, while Jared

reached base in each of their last 10 road games… Chase Kiefer leads the team with 10 multi-hit and seven multi-RBI road games this year.SIX, IT’S A MAGIC NUMBER: The Argonauts are a perfect 22-0 when scoring six or more runs this season… On the flipside, when scoring five or less runs this season, UWF is just 4-22… Coincidentally, West Florida is averaging exactly six runs per game this season. IN MISSISSIPPI: The 2017 GSC Tournament marks the first time the Argos will play in Mississippi this season… The squad had a good showing in the Magnolia State in 2016, going 4-2 in their six games… West Florida is 9-9 when playing in Mississippi since 2010.WOW, THE BULLPEN: Certainly one strength of the Argonauts in 2017 has been its bullpen, as relievers have only allowed 27 of 89 inherited runners to score (30.3%) — good for the best percentage in program history… In GSC action, UWF relievers have combined for a 1.99 ERA, good for another program best… Trace Penton leads the team with a 0.00 ERA as a reliever in GSC play… Brian Browning leads the team with 21.2 relief innings in GSC play, and the senior southpaw has dominated the competition with a .160 opponent batting average and a 1.25

Brown, Jarrod Petree, Justin Ambrosino, Michael Savas, Tanner Halstead, JT Granat, Walker O’Connor, and Brian Browning… This group has helped UWF post a 165-82 (.668) winning percentage since 2013 and has helped UWF be one of just four GSC clubs (UWF, West Alabama, Alabama Huntsville, Delta State) to make the GSC Tournament every year since 2013.HALSTEAD HEATING UP: Despite a tough stretch for UWF in April, a positive has been Tanner Halstead, who hit .340 for the month – good for the third best batting average on the team in that span… Through the team’s first 26 games, Halstead was hitting just .087 on the year, but his recent success has allowed him more than triple his batting average as the senior backstop owns a .271 average on the season.MARCH MADNESS: The Argos posted a 12-4 showing in the month of March, bringing its 8-6 record after February to 20-10… Ladeavon Matthews led the team with a .393 batting average, four home runs, and 16 RBI in March… His .639 slugging percentage was also a team best… The pitching staff posted a 2.98 ERA in the month of March, led by a 3-0 showing from Jared Gonzalez who posted a 1.71 ERA over 21 innings pitched… Brian Browning led the bullpen with 12.1 scoreless innings, only allowing two hits to register an opponent batting average of .051… On the base paths, West Florida stole 32 bases on 43 attempts, while opponents were only able to swipe 13 bags on the month.CHASE KIEFER STOLE A RECORD: Redshirt senior Chase Kiefer stole his program-best 78th stolen base in the series opener against Union on April 1, solidifying his spot atop the UWF career stolen base leaders… Kiefer enters the tournament with 84 career stolen bases and has only been thrown out 11 times in his career… His .884 stolen base percentage is fifth best on the UWF career leaders… Kiefer cracked the top 10 GSC career steal leaders last weekend and his 84 career steals are good for ninth most in the conference’s history. GSC CAREER STOLEN BASES1.
