LNG Fuel Tank for TSHD Ecodelta on Its Way to Barkmeijer Shipyard

first_imgImage source: CryonormCryonorm BV said in their latest release that the LNG fuel tank for Van der Kamp’s new trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Ecodelta is on the move and heading for Barkmeijer Shipyard in Stroobos, the Netherlands.Cryonorm, the Alphen aan den Rijn based company, develops, designs and manufactures cryogenic vaporizers, small scale systems and plants for Air Gases and LNG.The 325m³ LNG storage tank is completed with the tank connection space holding both vaporizers and all required valves and safeties.“With a total weight of 88t, diameter of 7.4m and overall length of nearly 12m this transport asks for quite some special arrangements,” the company said.The newbuild, scheduled for delivery in late 2018, will be one of few LNG-powered dredgers in operation around the globe.Despite being in the early stage of construction, the Zwolle-based dredging company has already won the first contract for the newbuild.According to Van der Kamp, under the agreement signed last year, the TSHD will be responsible for keeping Rotterdam’s port basins at the correct depth until 2023.[mappress mapid=”24675″]last_img read more

LAZARO BARRERA STAKES QUOTES-SATURDAY, MAY 18, 2019

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTESJOE TALAMO, MUCHO GUSTO, WINNER: “I knew we wouldn’t get an easy lead, so I looked around to see who was going to go with us. I just wanted to get him out of there and get him comfortable. It’s amazing how well this horse relaxes.  He’s drawn the rail a lot and he’s still able to relax after he gets serious pressure. Today, he took two or three breathers around the turn and then he took off. He’s a pleasure to ride. Anybody could ride this horse. He definitely is really good seven-eighths to a mile, he can for sure go two turns. After he broke his maiden (first time out at Los Alamitos on Sept. 20), I started working him a lot in Del Mar. He never acted like a two-year-old, he acted like an older horse.”TRAINER QUOTESPHIL OVIEDO, TRAINER OF MANHATTAN UP, SECOND:  “I’m feeling really good. It looked like speed was holding all day, so for him to finish up like he did was pretty impressive. I might run him around two turns before the meet is over.”NOTES: The winning owner is Michael Lund Petersen who resides in Reisterstown, Maryland.Michael L.
