Royal Caribbean turns to LNG and fuel cells for new Icon-class vessels

first_imgRoyal Caribbean Cruises signed a memorandum of understanding with Meyer Turku for two Icon class vessels that will be fueled by liquefied natural gas and feature fuel cell technology. The two vessels are scheduled for delivery in the second quarters of 2022 and 2024, while the company will start testing the fuel cell technology on an existing Oasis-class ship in 2017, according to a statement issued on Tuesday.Meyer Turku said in its statement that the approximately 200,000 gross ton large ships will use fuel cells for power generation.Royal Caribbean Cruises said that it will “run progressively larger fuel cell projects on new Quantum class vessels being built in the next several years.”Richard Fain, chairman and chief executive officer of Royal Caribbean Cruises, noted that the switch to LNG makes it easier to suppliers to make infrastructure commitments, as the growing number of LNG-fueled vessels urges growth in ports supporting its use.The Icon ships are expected to run primarily on LNG but will also be able to run on distillate fuel, to accommodate occasional itineraries that call on ports without LNG infrastructure, Royal Caribbean Cruises said.The vessels are most likely to accommodate approximately 5,000 passengers, and final contracts for the vessels are expected to be completed by year end.last_img read more

Pennington’s career year sparks Miami

first_img GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES With a victory Sunday over the Jets, the Dolphins (10-5) win the AFC East. With a loss, Miami falls short of the playoffs and must settle for the considerable consolation of a remarkable turnaround from last year’s 1-15 fiasco.The Jets (9-6) are also in contention to win the division, compounding the drama. And a compelling subplot is the chance for Pennington to beat the team that released him in August in favor of Brett Favre.“They say revenge is a dish best served cold,” Dolphins receiver Brandon London said. “I hear it’s going to be pretty cold in New York.”Pennington appreciates the appeal of a script that might be rejected by Hollywood as too corny, and he says he always expected the final game of the regular season to be important. But he says it’s less personal than the opener, which the Jets won in Miami despite Pennington’s two touchdown passes.“As fate would have it, this is how sports always works out,” he said. “This situation doesn’t surprise me; I pretty much banked on it. . . .“Will there be some emotions? Sure. You’re going back to the Meadowlands, where you played eight years. But I just don’t think it will be to the magnitude of the season opener, when the situation was so fresh.”Pennington became the Jets’ starter in 2002 and led them to three playoff berths. But he was criticized for his arm strength and durability, had a on-again, off-again relationship with Jets fans and lost his job at midseason last year.When Favre became available, Pennington became expendable. He welcomed a fresh start under a new Dolphins regime led by former Jets coach Bill Parcells, and quickly became a leader on a team desperate for direction.Teammates affectionately refer to him as coach Pennington. His cerebral demeanor is a counterbalance to the Dolphins’ other locker-room leader, fiery linebacker Joey Porter. And his work ethic set the standard for a team that has come to pride itself on a no-frills, no-stars, blue-collar approach.Coach Tony Sparano was in his office on the team’s day off last week when he tried to reach Pennington.“I needed to get in touch with him, and I called him and he says, ‘I’m downstairs in the film room,’ ” Sparano said. “When it’s Week 16 and your quarterback is there at 4 o’clock on his day off, that tells me an awful lot.”Pennington has done much more than set an example and is a leading contender for the league’s MVP award. Working with an ordinary receiving corps, he ranks second in the NFL to San Diego’s Philip Rivers in passing and directs an offense that has committed only 12 turnovers.He’s coming off one of his best games, throwing for three scores in frigid, windy weather and directing an 8 1/2-minute touchdown drive in the fourth quarter to win Sunday at Kansas City, 38-31.“Under the conditions that he played last week, that’s one of the best performances I ever saw,” said Dolphins offensive coordinator Dan Henning.Pennington, who will play in all 16 games for only the second time, has thrown for a career-high 3,453 yards with only seven interceptions. It’s well-documented in Miami and New York that Favre has thrown for fewer yards in more attempts with a league-high 19 interceptions.As the Dolphins’ 13th starting quarterback since Dan Marino retired, Pennington is easily the best. More to the point this week, at age 32 he’s playing better than the 39-year-old Favre.And Pennington’s team has one more win, which is his bottom line.“I’ve never seen anything mean so much to someone as winning means to him,” Dolphins center Samson Satele said. “He wants to show everybody the Jets made a mistake. He wants this team to win so bad. The guy works like he’s fighting for a job.”With a contract that runs through 2011, Pennington is entrenched as Miami’s starter regardless of the outcome Sunday. As the Dolphins prepare for their first meaningful season finale in six years, they know where they’d be without him. RELATED PHOTOS IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5center_img Miami Dolphins quarterback Chad Pennington denies his return to the Meadowlands is about retribution or redemption or reliving the past, even if he was cast aside by the New York Jets like a leaky football.Instead he says the game’s solely about the future: whether the Dolphins will be in the playoffs next week for the first time since 2001. Winning touch: Dolphins quarterback Chad Pennington has played an instrumental role in the team’s dramatic turnaround this season. After a one-win season in 2007, Miami (10-5) can win the AFC East with a victory over the Jets, Pennington’s former team, on Sunday. | AP PHOTOlast_img read more

(Photo by Bruce Badgley, Motorsports Photography)KELLER, Texas ­– Better competition made Kamera Kaitlin McDonald a better driver.The Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center Southern SportMod national rookie of the year from Keller, Texas, tallied three feature wins while running weekly at Boyd Raceway and Kennedale Speed­way Park, also the regular venues for national champion Jeffrey Abbey and a host of the divi­sion’s heavy hitters.“I have raced with the Abbeys forever. It’s always been a goal of mine to be competitive,” said McDonald, 15 years old and a sophomore at Timber Creek High School. “I got three of the wins Jeffrey could have had. Once I won my first race (on June 11 at Kennedale) we strived even harder.”McDonald was runner-up to Abbey at KSP, third behind Abbey and Ronnie Welborn at Boyd and fourth in the national points race.“Seat time was very important. I learned to get a feel for the car and read more into the track,” said McDonald, who made 47 starts at five different speedplants in Texas and Oklahoma. “That helped me develop as a driver. That was the biggest thing I learned this season.”She was 17th when the division made its Labor Day debut at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s, an event she described as both exciting and amazing.McDonald began racing a go-kart at the age of eight, then in the Bandolero, Legends and mini-stock classes. She’s the second female driver in as many years to earn national rookie of the year honors in the Southern SportMod division.“It’s quite an honor for me to follow in Taylor Florio’s footsteps. It also means a lot to me to be one of the youngest rookies of the year,” McDonald said. “I will be refining my driving skills and experienc­ing new tracks next season, trying to prepare for a run for the championship in the near future.”Starts: 47Wins: 3Additional Top Fives: 12 HER CREW: Parents Tim and Karan, John Sliney and Dean Abbey and his crew.HER SPONSORS: TM Racing of Keller; DAE Enterprises of Fort Worth; and Abbey Racing of Comanche.last_img read more

Off the Shelf or Custom Tailored Compute?

first_imgBy Rob Hayes – Intel VP, Data Center Group, GM, Data Center Group Strategic PlanningCommon off the shelf, general purpose computing solutions deliver increasingly faster performance and lower total cost of ownership (TCO) compared to fixed function appliances.  Intel continuously improves the performance per TCO of general purpose computing through our investments in Moore’s Law and we have “perfected” the concept of designing a great processor and manufacturing millions of them (per day!) exactly the same.  As more industries have been attracted to general purpose computing on Intel Architecture, the system requirements and workload attributes have grown more diverse, creating tension with the general purpose “one size fits all” model.Historically, enterprise IT consumed the majority of server CPUs – driving a specific set of requirements.  More recently, developers of public cloud services, high-performance computing applications, and telco services also seek to benefit from the standard high-volume economics of Intel’s ecosystem and gain the agility of quickly deploying software-based services.  These new applications have differing requirements for performance, I/O, security, manageability, etc. making it difficult to serve all user needs with one product line.  The challenge is how to enable great performance for a range of workloads and the ability for customers to integrate their unique value into IA platforms without sacrificing the economic benefits of common off the shelf silicon.To address this challenge, Intel has been building new capabilities to tailor our general purpose products into workload-optimized derivatives with various combinations of processor cores, accelerators, I/Os, and custom logic.  Some examples: These capabilities allow Intel and our partners to leverage the IP building block designs and manufacturing processes from our general purpose product line to create workload-optimized and custom products on Intel Architecture that provide optimal performance for the desired application.  The best of both worlds.This blog originally appeared on The Data Stack. Cores:  Intel has designed a family of processor cores that are each optimized for different types of workloads – integer and floating point, scalar and vector, latency sensitive and high-throughput processing.Accelerators:  We created a variety of workload accelerators to offload the CPU of routine functions like compression, encryption, graphics, media transcode, packet inspection and filtering, and others.I/Os:  We offer a broad range of standard interfaces such as PCI-Express, Ethernet, SATA, DDR, USB, etc. as well as proprietary high-speed and memory-coherent interfaces for tight integration with the processor.Custom logic:  For customers who want a custom-tailored product, we can integrate their unique value into custom CPUs and/or ASICs through our SoC design methodology and Intel Custom Foundry design tools and manufacturing services.last_img read more
