Built by Samsung Heavy Industries in Korea, Seajacks claims that Scylla is the world’s largest and most capable installation jack up vessel to date and will join Seajacks’ growing and impressive fleet of modern vessels, which includes the Kraken, Leviathan, Hydra and Zaratan.Commenting on the new vessel, Blair Ainslie, Seajacks ceo said: “It’s another terrific achievement for the new build team at Seajacks, which have now overseen the on-time and on-budget delivery of five of the world’s most advanced DP2 jack-up vessels.”Scylla is the largest and most advanced installation jack-up on the market and is targeted at the offshore wind and oil and gas markets. The vessel can handle extra large monopiles, jacket foundations, and is able to transport an impressive number of the 7 and 8 MW turbines that are currently available in the wind market.”Seajacks Scylla will be carried from South Korea to Europe on the heavy load carrier, Osprey, and is expected to arrive in Rotterdam around the end of January.Seajacks operations teams will then prepare the vessel for its first project next spring.Based in Great Yarmouth, UK, Seajacks International employs nearly 300 people onshore and offshore. Scylla’s first job in the UK will commence in 2017 for DONG Energy at the Walney Extension offshore wind farm.Scylla is outfitted with 105 m long legs which give the ability to install components in water depths in excess of 65 m (North Sea conditions).

The two buoys, which measured 8.1 m in length and had a diameter of 2.55 m, were transported by Globaltrans with special trailers from Bremerhaven in Germany to Luxembourg Airport and flown onboard two of Cargolux’s Boeing 747 freighters to Xiamen.Cargolux completed the loading and discharge of the aircraft. After Customs clearance, both buoys were transported by specialised trucks to their final destination in Fuzhou.The buoys are destined for the offshore wind farms in Zhangpu and Changle, off the coast of China’s Fujian province.”To ensure safest transportation, the weight and complex dimensions of the buoys, with its very sensible electronic equipment, required the design and manufacture of special transport frames. In addition we were challenged by a very time sensitive shipment, not allowing us any complications or delays,” explained Kay Uwe Gretsch, ceo Globaltrans Germany, adding that Cargolux’s B747 freighters to Xiamen offered the best solution for the project.The buoys were designed by the German Fraunhofer Institut and will measure the wind speed in the designated locations up to a height of 200 m from their position on the sea surface to allow precise calculation of the wind farms’ electricity yield. www.cargolux.com www.globaltrans.eu

“Sa akin naman ang ine-aim ko na lang ngayon, makatulong ako sa team in my own little way at ma-experience ko ‘yung grand slam, then okay nan,” concluded the former St. Francis of Assisi College standout. On the part of KaTropa, Harvey Carey has the most rings with seven, Ryan Reyes, Kelly Williams, Jayson Castro and David Semerad have six each, while Brian Heruela have four. Curiously, all of Semerad and Heruela’s titles were won at Beermen. Anthony Washington has three PBA rings, two when he was still with Beermen, Ilonggo Ken Bono has two while Celedonio Trollano and Yousef Taha have one PBA title apiece. Aside from Yancy De Ocampo who won six rings with the Beermen, four with the Mixers and one with KaTropa, several members of the Beermen’s roster have multiple championships. The Beermen has already done the first step after ruling the Philippine Cup in May and is now close to the second with the SMB reaching the 2019 Honda PBA Commissioner’s Cup finals against the TNT KaTropa. *** De Ocampo knew he is close to the end with his playing time heavily diminished at the Beermen camp with the entry of June Mar Fajardo, Christian Standhardinger and Kelly Nabong. Ilonggo Ronald Tubid, Arwind Santos and Alex Cabagnot have eight PBA championships each while five-time PBA MVP June Mar Fajardo, Marcio Lassiter and Chris Ross have seven each. De Ocampo could have achieved that feat way back in 2014 at the Magnolia Hotshots (then San Mig Coffee Mixers) but he was traded just before the start of the Governors’ Cup, which the Mixers ruled to complete the Grand Slam. “Wala man akong playing time, okay lang as long as nananalo. Moral support tayo. Sobrang blessed lang talaga,” said De Ocampo, who did not saw action at all in the ongoing conference due to an injury. “Sabi ko dati pag naka-Grand Slam na ako, magre-retire na ako. Sana this year, sana mangyari na yun,” said De Ocampo, the top overall pick during the 2002 PBA Rookie Draft. The 39-year-old De Ocampo admitted he has nothing to ask for in his PBA career after winning 11 PBA championships (most by any active PBA player) but being part of a Grand Slam team will be a good exit. VETERAN center Yancy de Ocampo has one wish before ending his 17-year professional basketball career — for the San Miguel Beermen to complete the Grand Slam in the 2019 PBA Season. “Malaki ‘yung possibility na mangyari ang grand slam pero depende sa performance ng team. Oo, powerhouse ‘yung team pero nandoon lagi ang tendency mag-relax,” he added. “Minsan masyadong kumportable ang players sa isa’t isa. ‘Yun ang weakness namin, he said. “Pero once kailangang kailangan namin ang panalo, nagkakataon naman na nao-overcome namin ‘yung struggles.” Matthew Ganuelas-Rosser and John Billy Mamaril have four each, Chico Lanete, Louie Vigil and Von Pessumal have two apiece, while Terrence Romeo, Christian Standhardinger, Kelly Nabong, and Ilonggo Paul Zamar have one each. No PBA rings so far from the KaTropa’s camp were Gilas Pilipinas mainstays Roger Pogoy and Jeth Troy Rosario, Anthony Semerad, Frank Golla, Marion Magat, and Jan Karlo Casino./PN
Eight teams are set to compete in thecage wars of the 1st Pintados de Pasi Invitational Open Basketball Tournament,which will open this afternoon at the City of Passi Arena in Passi City,Iloilo. “Hindiman pinangalanan ni babaeng guest kung sino ‘yung pinatutungkulan niya pero alam na alam na ng mga nakabasa na si(veteran guard) ‘yung tinutukoy niya,”the source further said. Meanwhile, aside from basketball, thereare other sporting events in line with Pintados de Pasi. They are theDevelopmental Chess Tournament (March 8), bodybuilding and duathlon race (March15), car show (March 20), Motorcross and taekwondo (March 21), Muay ThaiNational Championships (March 26 to 30) and Table Tennis (April 4 and 5).

Among the confirmed teams in thecompetition were the Department of Public Works and Highways 2nd DEO/J.Cordon/Double J, Western Institute of Technology/XYB/Toto Tia Ten, Asialink/TEJand Hercor College Junior Jaguars. ### BLIND ITEM: A veteran guard reportedlyvented ire on his fellow guest, specifically a woman, in a wedding reception ofa former teammate not long time ago due to his “unstable hands.” Also set to join the tournament wereGuimaras Leopards, JKG, The Octonganons and the Philippine National Police. “Hindinagustuhan ni babaeng guest (a famous sports anchor) ang walang permisong pagdapo ng kamay ni player pero di siya nageskandalo. Kinabukasan, dun na siya nagwala sasocial media,” he added. A source told Buzzer Beater that thesaid veteran might have had too much of alcohol by that time, therefore, hecould be not aware that he was touching female guests without permission. “Dahilkasalan nga iyon siguro baka nakainom na rin si (veteran guard), kaya hindi niya napigilan ang kanyang mgakamay na dumapo sa parte ng katawan ng babaeng guest,” said the source. “Mayhistory din kasi si player nung kabataanniya pa. Nung nasa kolehiyo pa ‘yannahuli ‘yan sa library na kunwari aynagbabasa ng libro, pero ‘yun palamay ginagawa nang milagro.” “Sanalang ay wala na tayong marinig na ganitong mga kuwento pa kay player dahil very talented siya at tatagal pa siya sa liga. Kasi sakaling masangkot uli siya sa kontrobersya, baka ‘yung careerniya parang imported na chips na masira,” the source concluded./PN
