A growing disparity between the turbine megawatt growth and units deployed will impact component suppliers as price pressure percolates down the supply chain, according to a new report by Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables.The report – Global wind turbine supply chain trends – estimates that global turbine supply chain potential sits at USD 540 billion over the next ten years.In the next decade, global wind annual installations will grow from 53GW in 2018 to over 75GW in 2027, a 40% increase, according to Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables senior analyst, Shashi Barla.However, a total number of turbines deployed in 2027 is expected to be just over 16,000, 20% less compared to over 20,000 turbines deployed in 2018, due to the increase in individual capacity.This, coupled with the expected increase in the global market share among leading turbine manufacturers, will put additional pressure on component suppliers, according to the report.“We expect the global market share among the top five-turbine OEMs to rise to more than 73% by 2027, compared to just 54% in 2016. It is therefore imperative that component suppliers secure strategic relationships with these winning OEM to solidify their own future success,” Barla, said.The research also highlights the logistics challenges on the horizon for blades and towers as component sizes become longer and taller, respectively. Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables expects the industry to circumvent these obstacles with new transportation methods and on-site/closer-to-site manufacturing. As such, the increase in project average MW size across global markets will favour this trend due to economies of scale.Turbine OEMs continue to leverage independent suppliers to out-source component manufacturing, while the component design continues to move inwards, according to the report.“After exploiting the low-cost footprint advantage in China, Western turbine OEMs are now searching for out-sourcing partnerships with Chinese component suppliers as a way to squeeze costs further,” Barla said.“Offshore growth in Asian markets will facilitate expansion opportunities for independent blade suppliers, as western markets are primarily served by turbine OEMs in-house capacity. As blade length increases on next generation turbines, carbon fiber utilization for structural blade support is expected to increase its share of the market, from 25% in 2018 to around 57% by 2027, due to support light-weighting and other advanced properties.”

The 22-year-old has contributed 61 goals to City’s cause during that time, winning six major trophies in total – including two Premier League titles. The Brazil international has had to be content with a backup role behind first-choice centre-forward Aguero, who shows no sign of slowing down despite approaching the latter stages of his career at 31. However, the Argentine suffered an injury in December which allowed Jesus to step up in his absence, and he has taken the opportunity with both hands, scoring 11 goals in his last 13 appearances. Jesus hasn’t enjoyed being consistently consigned to the bench at the Etihad, but claims to have no regrets over his initial decision to join City. “I feel this is the best place for me to develop, if not I wouldn’t have come,” he told the club’s official website. “Of course I trust in the club when I took the decision to come here. “I am here. Sometimes I am happy, sometimes I am not but that’s normal because I want to play. Gabriel Jesus insists that Manchester City is still the “best place” for him to develop his all-round game, despite the fact he remains Sergio Aguero’s understudy. “Sometimes I can understand why I don’t but I try to do my best every day. I will do my best every day because I want to stay here and I want to help my team-mates.” Jesus hit a double in City’s 4-0 win over Fulham in the FA Cup on Sunday, with the holders rewarded with a fifth-round tie away at Sheffield Wednesday. “I am happy!” he responded when asked to assess his latest performance. “We won the game, qualified for the next round and when I score, of course, I am even happier! “We played well.” Jesus could retain his place for a Carabao Cup semi-final clash against Manchester United on Wednesday. Guardiola’s men have one foot in the final after winning the first leg 3-1 at Old Trafford, but Jesus has warned against complacency in the return fixture.

There are strong concerns on the successful hosting of 2018 edition of Lagos Open Tennis formerly known as the Governor’s Cup Lagos Tennis over paucity of funds expected weeks back from several sponsors including the major sponsor, the Lagos State Government headed by Mr Akinwunmi Ambode.This may cause major setback for the International Tennis Federation (ITF) approved tournament, the 18th edition which is scheduled to hold from 29 September through 13 October, 2018 at the Lagos Tennis Club (LLTC), TBS, Onikan.A check at the venue revealed that the preparations and face-lifting of the club are currently ongoing, these are being slowly carried out due to the inability of the Local Organising Committee (LOC) to mobilise the management of the club to finish the works few days to the commencement of the championships.“Renovations ongoing at the Lagos Lawn Tennis Club, but being delayed due to lack of funds now,” it was gathered.Other areas such as advance payment to the Eko Hotel & Suites, Lagos for the players’ accommodation, allowances of technical officials – referees, umpires and ball boys as well as dollars prize money of the foreign players have not been attended to due to lack of funds. Indications are that if adequate funding is not provided, the LOC may be constrained to announce the cancellation of the Lagos Open this year. This may potent danger to the future organisation of the international tournaments in Lagos as this may bring severe sanctions to the LOC and Nigeria Tennis Federation (NTF) and more importantly a disgrace to Lagos.The ITF has announced that over 130 emerging tennis players from 47 nations of the world will take part in this year’s Lagos Open Tennis with most of them already sent their arrival dates to the organisers.The Lagos Open Tennis is being organised annually to celebrate the sitting Governor of Lagos State since the administration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, inherited by the erstwhile government of Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola and has also been held in the last three years of Ambode’s regime.The LOC informed at the world press conference held recently to unveiled the repackaged Lagos Open Tennis that the Lagos State Government has been the major supporter of the competition, which has set a transition target of becoming an ITF Challenger Series in the next three years with the target capacity to attract its own brand and sponsors while attracting super stars in the world of tennis to Lagos.The championship has been adding positive values to the tourism heritage of Lagos since inception as it has always attracted emerging tennis players from nothing less than 47 countries of the world annually to Lagos.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
After her first batting practice in Tempe, Jasmine Watson didn’t look like a slumping hitter to Syracuse head coach Leigh Ross.Ross saw the swing of a player who slugged .521 last year for the Orange, not the struggling first baseman who had struck out 48 times this season. So Ross stayed the course with her cleanup hitter, even with Syracuse facing elimination in the NCAA tournament’s regional round.‘With hitters like (Watson), you have to be patient,’ Ross said in a phone interview. ‘You know they can break open the game at any time with one swing.’Watson did just that in the eighth inning of Syracuse’s (42-15) elimination game against Long Beach State (29-25), smacking a solo home run to lead the Orange to a 2-1 victory in Tempe, Ariz. SU fell to Arizona State 3-1 earlier Saturday, but Watson’s homer set up a rematch with the Sun Devils (48-7) on Sunday at 6 p.m. The Orange need to beat ASU twice to advance to the Super Regionals.Watson was swarmed by her teammates at home plate after her clutch home run, moving SU within three outs of advancing to the regional finals. The Orange closed out the 49ers in the bottom half of the inning to earn a second shot at the favored Sun Devils. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn its first matchup with ASU, SU was doomed by a monster fourth inning by the hosts.The Orange led 1-0 through three frames, but couldn’t keep the Sun Devils at bay. Pitcher Jenna Caira faced nine different Arizona State hitters in the inning and allowed two bases-loaded, momentum-deflating singles.‘That’s just the way the game is sometimes,’ Ross said. ‘They got all the clutch hits when they needed them and we couldn’t get any from that point on. We only had one base runner after the fourth inning.’Ross knows that offensive output won’t be good enough to beat Arizona State in a rematch. But even before Watson’s home run gave her team an extra-inning victory, Ross could tell that her team wasn’t ready to go home.SU wanted another shot against the Sun Devils. And on Sunday, the Orange will get a chance to correct its mistakes against one of the nation’s best teams with a berth to the Super Regionals on the line.‘You could tell the players wanted another game,’ Ross said. ‘We know we need to hit and minimize mistakes, and we know we can beat this team because it was so close last time.’email@example.com Comments Published on May 19, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Nick: firstname.lastname@example.org | @nicktoneytweets Facebook Twitter Google+
Published on February 24, 2015 at 7:16 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ Phil D’Abbraccio (20-7): Notre Dame 74, Syracuse 65SOLSyracuse has shown some valiant fight through this stretch of challenging opponents, but the luck the Orange needs to get past Notre Dame didn’t join SU in South Bend. UND shoots well and shoots consistently from 3-point range and given the open looks that a zone lends itself to, that’ll be more than enough to overcome a lack of a comparable post presence to Rakeem Christmas – whose farewell tour trudges along with another Syracuse loss.Jesse Dougherty (21-6): Notre Dame 72, Syracuse 61No luck neededBoth of these team are susceptible to good 3-point shooting and here’s where they differ — the No. 9 Fighting Irish are deadly from behind the arc. Led by Jerian Grant and Pat Connaughton, UND is built to slice up the Orange’s zone in all kinds of ways. The one place Notre Dame lags behind SU is in the frontcourt, but Rakeem Christmas can only do so much before the Fighting Irish pull away with a substantial amount of time on the second-half clock.Jacob Klinger (22-5): Notre Dame 70, Syracuse 55Shooting the lights outThis is hardly the first time this has been pointed out, but the easiest way to beat the zone is to go over it and no team in the Atlantic Coast Conference has an easier time taking and making 3s than Notre Dame. UND is shooting 40.4 percent from beyond the arc this season. With Trevor Cooney feeling the effects of a back sprain, SU not only has a damaged perimeter shooter, it faces the Fighting Irish with a key defender hobbled. This team’s already stretched and there’s not enough Rakeem Christmas and Michael Gbinije to go around to make up for that — especially not in South Bend where the Irish have only lost once this year.

Published on March 25, 2019 at 1:32 pm Contact Michael: email@example.com | @MikeJMcCleary Before Macy Miller set records at South Dakota State, one of the biggest games of her career came in seventh grade. It was 2008, and Miller played in the big-four championship. For whatever reason, it looked like she’d cry. “Geez,” said Wes Morgan, Miller’s then-future high school coach, “Mace is struggling a little bit.” Sitting next to him, Miller’s father, Alan, didn’t care. Miller never shows emotion. That was not the time to do so.“Are you going to cry or are you going to make a play?” he yelled. Miller sneered. On the final possession of the game, she swiped a steal at the top of the key, dribbled down to the other end of the court and finished a left-handed layup as the buzzer sounded.After the game, though, she still wasn’t right. She registered a 104-degree fever, and Alan took her to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with double pneumonia.“Maybe ‘Dad’ was a little hard on her,” Alan joked on Sunday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSince then, she’s torn anterior cruciate ligaments in both knees, rehabbed twice and established an aspect of “patience,” Alan said, in her game that for many years she didn’t have. It’s a skill many around her believe will lead to a future in the WNBA. This season, she set both SDSU and Summit League records for career points and when the No. 6-seed Jackrabbits meet No. 3-seed Syracuse (25-8, 11-5 Atlantic Coast) in the NCAA tournament round of 32, she will give South Dakota State (27-6, 15-1 Summit) its best chance to knock off the higher-seeded Orange.“Syracuse is a very well-run team, they’re a great team,” Miller said. “I feel like if we play our game like we have been this whole postseason, I think our name will get out there. “Miller’s game has long been predicated on explosion. At Mitchell (South Dakota) High School, Miller ran faster than opponents and excelled through contact. Though she’d worked on form shooting since she was young, none of the drills moved her further than 15 feet from the basket. She took very few 3-pointers in high school. Alan only remembered 18 attempts in her career. She found much of her offense through straight-line drives to the rim and in the mid range.Then, in an AAU game right after her freshman season, she jump-stopped and collapsed. The first major injury of Miller’s career was a torn left ACL on July 31. She got surgery at Orthopedic Institute Sioux Falls from Dr. Peter Looby and rehabbed for four months with Brad Pfeifle, the VP of sports medicine and rehab services at the institute.When she returned for practices by early December, she brought an agility ladder for conditioning drills well after practice ended, Morgan said. The cousin of former Miami Heat and Memphis Grizzlies player Mike Miller, who now coaches with the Memphis Tigers, she continued to do drills he took home with him from his NBA ventures even if she was too young or not strong enough to do them. More and more it frustrated her, but she hardly would mention her injury: “I’ll just come back stronger,” she’d say to Mike.“The way she took it,” Mike said, “it was almost an inspiration to me.”When she arrived at South Dakota State, she came with a similar slashing style. She got to the rim, put her body into the chest of defenders and finished over them. But it was her mid-range game that set her apart. In her first matchup with Western Illinois her freshman season, Miller scored 20 points on 7-of-11 shooting while adding six points at the free throw line. WIU head coach JD Gravina turned to his coaches on the bench midway through the game. “I want you guys to recruit me a freshman like that,” Alan remembered he said.The Jackrabbits won two-straight Summit League championships and earned consecutive trips to the NCAA tournament. In her sophomore year, No. 13-seed South Dakota State met No. 4-seed Stanford in the first round. With the ball in her hands in the final seconds, Miller got a step on her defender and took the ball to the rim. But her potential game-winning shot was blocked. After the game, her family and coaches pleaded that she can’t play the game at one speed. That play stuck with her and she worked on a step-back move to find open space.But in the ninth game of her junior season, another jump-stop caused a tear in her right ACL, ending her junior season. The process began again: rehabbing with bungee cords on her knee, resting, conditioning. She worked with her point guard coach on her 3-point shooting, who showed her how to quicken her release. She asked question to her sharp-shooting cousin Mike and practiced with her family in the driveway.Now, rather than looking for contact, she finds open spaces and takes open shots. She rarely “forces” a shot, and now is a consistent threat from all three levels of the frontcourt. “One of the great things about Macy is that she doesn’t have to play the point,” South Dakota State head coach Aaron Johnston said. “We want her there, and she’s really good there, but we can take her off of there so she doesn’t always handle that kind of pressure and pace at that position.”Alan, Mike and coaches all saw the improvement. Her 3-point shot became a “weapon.” Mike had watched her online since she was playing in high school championships, and now he brags about Miller “more than anything else.” Miller said that Syracuse’s press will try to speed up her game and get her off balance. But she hasn’t played that way for a while.In the Jackrabbits round of 64 matchup with Quinnipiac, the ball was once again in the hands of Miller. South Dakota State led the Bobcats by five points and Miller held the ball at the top of the key. Alan said defenders hadn’t closed out until recently on her 3-point shot. The drive was always the biggest threat. But with 1:30 remaining, she took a step back and fired.“If Syracuse gives her an opportunity to kill,” Mike said, “she’s going to kill.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
