Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) and Karpower International, a unit of the Turkish Karadeniz Holding, have agreed to jointly carry out the first LNG-to-Powership project under the co-brand Karmol in Mozambique.For this purpose, the two companies will jointly own and operate an FSRU and a Powership, MOL said in its statement, noting that the pair have already introduced the concept of LNG-to-Powership solution outlining the Mozambique project.This LNG-to-Powership project consists of the collaborative operations of the FSRU to deliver regasified LNG and the Powership to receive regasified LNG in order to produce electricity, which is subsequently provided to Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM), the Mozambican National Power Utility, through the electricity connection and transmission facility.The FSRU is now being converted from an existing LNG carrier, while the Powership is currently operating with heavy fuel oil in Nacala, but in accordance with the prior arrangement with EDM, it will be switched to operation with LNG after the FSRU delivery.In the past years, Mozambique has seen rapid economic growth, which in order to sustain requires the increased supply of stable and affordable supply of electricity.Karmol’s LNG-to-Powership solution with power generation capacity of 120 MW will create the supply of electricity for the people of Mozambique and, provide critical infrastructure for the use of LNG within Mozambican territory.When completed, the project will be the first LNG -to Power solution and FSRU project in Eastern and Southern Africa.MOL and Karpowership intend to continue to jointly develop LNG-to-Powership projects all over the world.
Victor Obinna followed up his weekend hat-trick with two goals as West Ham beat Blackpool to move off the foot of the Premier League table.Keeper Richard Kingson’s blunder gifted him the opening goal, before debutant Robbie Keane volleyed in a second.Blackpool’s Charlie Adam scored from a corner only for Obinna’s rasping shot to make it 3-1 before half-time.Adam thumped a free-kick against the bar as the Seasiders laid siege in the second half but West Ham held on.From the outset, neither side held anything back as they both went all out in attack, and the game developed a lively tempo.Although Ian Holloway’s team had the better of the early possession, it was the visitors who did more with the ball when they had it, and the first meaningful chance fell to Obinna. Frederic Piquionne fired in a cross from the left which was allowed to go all the way across the box to Obinna and his bobbling shot drew a good full-stretch from Kingson.Obinna was a constant threat, and with West Ham having clearly identified the right-hand side of Blackpool’s defence as a weakness, he was regularly in the thick of the action.When the first goal of the game came, it was no surprise that the Nigerian was involved.He twisted and turned and pulled marker Craig Cathcart out of position, and opened up the angle to shoot from the left-hand corner of the box, with Kingson inexplicably palming the ball into his own net.But with the Hammers having shipped 10 goals in their last three league games, Blackpool knew the visitors were open to a sucker punch, and they very nearly landed one through Andy Reid. The Blackpool debutant spotted keeper Robert Green off his line and tried to curl a shot into the far top corner from wide on the right, but the England keeper back-pedalled and managed to finger-tip the ball over the bar.Seeing their lead threatened roused West Ham to action and inevitably Obinna was involved.He drew a fine double save from Kingson but there was nothing the Ghanaian could do about Keane’s follow-up volley into the bottom corner from close range.But just as Avram Grant’s side were starting to think of the rare luxury of a two goal half-time cushion, Blackpool struck back.Adam, the focus of so much pre-match attention, fired in a low corner from the right which somehow eluded everyone and skidded into the far corner to put the hosts on the scoreboard. Amazingly, there was still time for another goal before the break, and once again, Obinna was at the heart of things.Scott Parker charged forward from the centre circle and laid the ball off to Obinna, who unleashed an unstoppable left-foot shot from 30 yards into the top corner.Adam continued to show his huge value in the transfer market by being at the centre of everything Blackpool did, and he came within inches of narrowing West Ham’s lead when he smashed a second-half free-kick against the crossbar.That free-kick was earned after James Tomkins fouled substitute James Beattie and the introduction of the former Everton striker caused West Ham’s defence all kinds of problems.Winston Reid in particular struggled to deal with him, and was lucky to avoid conceding a penalty when he hauled Beattie down in the box, although the forward did not complain much about the decision. Beattie came on at the same time as former Hammer Marlon Harewood, showing the home side’s attacking intent, and they laid siege to Green’s goal for the rest of the game.But for all Blackpool’s pressure, Green’s stoppage-time one-handed save from Harewood was one of the few times he was truly threatened, and the visitors held on for only their second away win of the season.Source: BBC
