Ørsted and Balfour Beatty have broken ground on the onshore substation for the Hornsea Project Two offshore wind farm.Balfour Beatty is in charge of enabling works for the wind farm’s onshore substation to ensure the site preparation is underway in good time, avoiding future schedule pressures, a spokesperson from Ørsted told OffshoreWIND.The main contract for onshore substation works is planned to be awarded later this year, the spokesperson said.In 2015, Balfour Beatty won a GBP 25 million contract to construct a high-voltage onshore substation for Hornsea Project One.According to the spokesperson, the first phase of the site integration testing has commenced and works are on schedule to make connection to the national grid this summer.In September 2017, the Hornsea Project Two received a Contract for Difference for 1,386MW. The wind farm will feature 174 Siemens Gamesa 8MW turbines installed some 89km from the Yorkshire coast, UK.Once operational in 2022, it will be the world’s biggest offshore wind farm, leapfrogging the 1.2GW Hornsea Project One, currently being constructed 120km offshore Yorkshire.
Luis Suarez could become Barcelona’s highest scoring Uruguayan in Saturday’s La Liga match at Granada, having equalled in only two seasons what compatriot Ramon Alberto Villaverde Vazquez aggregated in his decade-long stint with the club.The 29-year-old’s brace against Espanyol in Barca’s 5-0 triumph last Sunday saw him reach 81 goals for the Catalans to equal the record of Villaverde Vazquez who had joined the club in 1954 and played 10 seasons, scoring 81 goals in 224 games.In only his second season at Barcelona, Suarez has struck 50 goals in all competitions this season to help the team remain in contention for a domestic double, overtaking his previous record of 49 for Ajax in the 2009-2010 campaign. “He is very intelligent,” Barca coach Luis Enrique said on the club website.“Sometimes relying too much on one player can hurt you, but if the team plays its game, Luis – who is lethal in the area – will have plenty of chances to score goals. It’s not just the goals, it’s the way the team plays that lets him score.”More goals are expected from Suarez, who has found the back of the net in four successive league games, netting 11 goals while setting up four more in that spell.With 37 goals scored so far, four more than Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, and with one La Liga game remaining, Suarez is on the verge of clinching the Pichichi award as the top scorer in La Liga.Since the 2008-2009 season, when Diego Forlan won it for Atletico Madrid, the award has gone to either Ronaldo or Lionel Messi.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram

Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed It’s probably a question Dwight Howard has heard a hundred times.How does a big man’s role change in an increasingly small league? Howard’s answer is pretty polished.“Well I’m 6-foot-9,” he laughed. “So I’m good.”Tell that to the rest of the NBA. Sporting a lineup with the 6-10, 255-pound Anthony Davis and another center, the Lakers are unapologetically big in a league that is more and more defined by outstanding guard play. “He wants us to be a physical team,” guard Alex Caruso said. “Anybody that comes and plays the Lakers, he wants to make sure that they know they’re playing us, and we leave a presence.”Vogel, an architect of top-level defenses in Indiana, has experience in this area. But will the twin towers lineup stand throughout the season? Against lineups that are unlikely to feature two bigs, the Lakers might be hard-pressed to guard certain opponentsRelated Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Even within the team, there are differing opinions. Veteran Jared Dudley said on media day during an appearance on Spectrum SportsNet that he believed Davis would play center during the postseason, whenever the Lakers were in “winning time.”The team leadership, however, has given every indication that they are moving forward with Davis playing the four position. It’s helped that Howard and McGee have been cited as early training camp standouts.The Lakers believe having multiple shot blockers will allow them – Davis included – to take risks they wouldn’t otherwise take.“We try to tell anybody who is guarding the ball, just be aggressive,” he said. “Because we have guys behind you who are going to protect you. So that goes for me as well. If I’m guarding the ball, I know that I have guys behind me who can block shots and also alter the offensive player’s shot.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThere are three top-tier shot blockers on the roster: The 6-11, 265-pound Howard (2.0 career blocks per game), Anthony Davis (2.4 bpg) and 7-foot, 270-pound JaVale McGee (1.6 bpg). With Howard or McGee likely to play alongside Davis for significant minutes this season, that skill set might seem redundant on defense.But Davis pushed back on that idea.“It’s hard to score,” he said. “It’s hard to score against us in the paint. So my role doesn’t change. I just don’t have to get every blocked shot now and every rebound. We have guys that can do the same thing.”That’s the potential of a double-bigs lineup: The Lakers figure to corner the market on blocked shots and defensive rebounds with Davis and another center. Davis’ fluidity makes him better at defending power forwards than the average 6-foot-10 shot blocker, and not playing true center could help protect him from the elbows and contact that generally hit harder in the paint.That lineup is being built into the Lakers’ identity that Coach Frank Vogel has outlined, one the players are internalizing. He’s made it clear to the team that he wants to play an imposing style with their size that leaves opponents feeling bruised.
