Van Oord details French offshore wind work

first_img“By taking on this offshore wind project, we are also contributing to the EU-wide renewable energy target of 32% by 2030.” Construction on the subsea drilling template has already started and is scheduled to be delivered in the fourth quarter of the year. “The Saint-Brieuc project will be our first offshore wind project in France and I’m proud of our involvement. Especially since we are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Iberdrola again,” said Pieter van Oord, CEO Van Oord. The Spanish consortium of Navantia and Windar Renovables will manufacture and deliver the jacket foundations for the project. In April, Van Oord revealed it had signed a preparatory works agreement with Iberdrola for the installation of 62 jacket foundations at the 496 MW wind farm. Saint-Brieuc will comprise 62 Siemens Gamesa 8 MW turbines installed 16km off the coast of Brittany. Van Oord is set to start its offshore operations at the French Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm in 2021 with the installation of pin piles. The Dutch company will use its installation vessel Aeolus, which will in 2022 be assisted by a second vessel to install the jackets foundations. The 496 MW offshore wind farm is expected to be fully commissioned in 2023.last_img read more

Hurricanes need 302 for victory on final day after Cornwall’s 4-32

first_imgBASSETERRE, St. Kitts, (CMC) – Leeward Islands Hurricanes captain Rahkeem Cornwall led a lion-hearted effort from the bowling attack on Saturday to leave his side with a final-day chase of 302 for victory against Jamaica Scorpions in the Regional 4-Day Championship.The burly Cornwall collected 4-32 from 29 overs with his high-class off-spin, and fast-medium bowlers Sheeno Berridge and Jeremiah Louis shared five wickets, as the Scorpions were bowled out for 191 in their second innings just before the close on the third day of their fourth-round match at Warner Park.Derval Green, batting at seven, led the way for the Scorpions with 51 that included nine fours from 48 balls in just over an hour at the crease.A few others got starts without carrying on, as the unreliability of the Scorpions’ batting once again reared its head – their captain Nikita Miller scored 26, opener Garth Garvey made 23, left-handed opening partner John Campbell got 22 and Damion Jacobs was not out on 20.Berridge scalped 3-47 from 12.3 overs and Louis 2-47 from 15 overs to complete the demolition of the Scorpions’ second innings batting.Miller, playing his first match of the season, had finished with 5-56 from 28.4 overs with his left-arm spin and Jacobs supported with 3-35 from 20 overs, as the Hurricanes were dismissed for 232 inside the first hour to hand the visitors a 110-run, first-innings lead.Campbell then gave the Scorpions a typical rollicking start before he edged to the ‘keeper off Berridge just before the visitors reached 41 for one at lunch.After the interval, just when it looked like Garvey was getting into the swing of things, Louis also had him caught behind and Cornwall followed up in the next over to dismiss Brandon King for a three-ball duck, leaving Scorpions 55 for three.They sunk to 73 for five, when Cornwall removed Assad Fudadin for 16 and former United States captain Steven Taylor for one before Louis left them wobbling on 99 for six, when he trapped first-innings batting hero Paul Palmer lbw for nine.Green roasted the Hurricanes bowling to dominate a 46-run stand with Dennis Bulli for the seventh wicket that added some meat to the Scorpions total before they fell within 10 balls of each other.Scorpions were 145 for eight, but Miller and Jacobs helped to make their workload on the final day a tad easier, when they put on 46 for the ninth wicket before Berridge returned to wrap up the innings.Hurricanes, starting the day on 209 for six, lost Cornwall in the third over of the day with just one run added when he fell to Jacobs. He made 29.Cornwall and Terence Warde had put on 60 for the seventh wicket, but there was token resistance from the rest of the Hurricanes batting before the innings closed..Warde persevered, adding 17 to his overnight score, before he also fell to Jacobs for 38, as the home team lost their last three wickets for just one run in the space of 20 deliveries.Scorpions – fifth in the standings on 18.2 points – have so far earned three batting points, three bowling points and 0.2 pace bowling points, and Hurricanes – third on 38.6 – have so far added three bowling points, one batting point plus two pace bowling points.SCORPIONS 1st Innings 342Hurricanes 1st Innings(overnight 209 for six)M Hodge c Fudadin b Jacobs 50C Hughes lbw b Thomas 20K Carty run out 0D Thomas c wkpr Taylor b Miller 33N Bonner lbw b Miller 33+J Hamilton lbw b Miller 0*R Cornwall c Green b Jacobs 29T Warde c Garvey b Jacobs 38J Louis not out 4M Matthew lbw b Miller 1S Berridge c Campbell b Miller 0Extras (b10, lb8, nb6) 24TOTAL (all out, 87.4 overs) 209Fall of wickets: 1-52, 2-58, 3-96, 4-145, 5-149, 6-150, 7-210, 8-231, 9-232Bowling: Green 15-7-23-0; Thomas 11-2-49-1 (nb6); Miller 28.4-9-56-5; Jacobs 20-10-35-3; Bulli 13-0-51-0SCORPIONS 2nd InningsJ Campbell c wkpr Hamilton b Berridge 22G Garvey c wkpr Hamilton b Louis 23A Fudadin c Warde b Fudadin 16B King c Warde b Cornwall 0P Palmer lbw b Louis 9+S Taylor c Louis b Cornwall 1D Green c Thomas b Bonner 51D Bulli lbw b Cornwall 11D Jacobs not out 20N Miller c Hughes b Berridge 26O Thomas b Berridge 0Extras (b8, lb2, nb2) 12TOTAL (all out, 73.3 overs) 191Fall of wickets: 1-35, 2-35, 3-56, 4-70, 5-73, 6-99, 7-145, 8-145, 9-191Bowling: Louis 15-3-47-2; Matthew 2-0-8-0; Berridge 12.3-1-47-3 (nb1); Cornwall 29-12-32-4; Warde 4-0-17-0; Thomas 5-2-18-0 (nb1); Bonner 6-3-12-1Position: Hurricanes need 302 for victorylast_img read more
