I think he could go into both their squads and make a real impact.‘That is how much ability he has. It is up to him how far he wants to go in his career. The sky’s the limit. Comment Edouard is enjoying a superb season for Scottish champions Celtic (Picture: Getty)‘Why have I picked these clubs? Because they have both been linked with his former Celtic striker partner Moussa Dembele in recent months.‘For me, Edouard is a better footballer than the Lyon striker and his fellow Frenchman.‘He is absolutely nailed on to win the player of the year award in my opinion.’Celtic are braced for offers for Edouard and manager Neil Lennon admits he is unsure whether the Scottish club will be able to keep hold of him beyond the summer.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City‘He is super-talented,’ Lennon said. ‘He could play in the Premier League and Champions League, no question, with the form he is in.‘At 22 he is has it all in front of him.

Image Courtesy: Ballast Water CentreAs the entrance into force of the Ballast Water Management Convention (BWMC) approaches, the industry’s sentiment on retrofitting ships with BWM systems seems to shift more to the negative side, based on several industry bodies World Maritime News spoke with.Speaking on the preparedness of shipowners to comply with the new requirements, Yildiz Williams, Senior Marine Consultant, Marine & Offshore, Lloyd’s Register, says that the majority of shipowners are ready in terms of paperwork preparedness – they either already have or are in the process of getting their ballast water management plans ready and approved and getting their internal ballast water management certificates issued.However, in terms of getting ready for the D-2 standard there is generally a lower level of preparedness, but this is because it’s not an immediate requirement after entry into force, following IMO’s decision at MEPC 71 to delay dates for the D-2 standard compliance.Based on LR’s prediction there are about 30,000 vessels that will need to retrofit.“There is a growing number of owners that have fitted systems onboard their vessels and are actively operating their ballast water treatments systems (BWTS) to ensure reliability and crew familiarity,” Thomas Kirk, Director, Environmental Performance, Global Marine, ABS, commented.On the other hand, according to Williams, the biggest concern that the shipowners have is the lack of trust in the technical capability of the ballast water management systems available.This is among the key reasons behind owners’ unwillingness to invest in retrofits, as explained by Williams: “because shipowners don’t see this as a benefit to them.”“However they have to invest to comply with the requirements. If they cannot comply then they cannot operate.”“They want to ensure that the system can operate in different conditions and that it can operate without breaking down. Owners probably do not want to scrap their vessels early so they are willing to invest in retrofits because they want to be compliant,” she added.Speaking from an engineering perspective Kirk says that the engineering involved in retrofitting a BWM system is far from trivial.“Space is a major constraint as are available power and hydraulics. This means that the team must first identify what space and how much power is available, which must be done before determining which systems will be suitable and provide the requisite flow rates. The configuration of ballast tanks is an important factor, especially with respect to the ability to perform treatment or neutralization during discharge.“Owners must consider the impact of treatment during ballasting. Similarly, many systems place constraints on vessels for additional treatment or neutralization during de-ballasting. Owners should also carefully consider the trade and ballast profile of their vessel when determining the best fit from the available technology.”With regard to space-related constraints, Williams said that there are companies that deal with fitting these systems.“But still we encourage our clients to speak to manufacturers and the installation companies early on to understand whether a system is suitable for their technical and operational profile. It is a challenge but it’s not impossible and it can certainly be done and the impact can be reduced if it is well planned in advance. Of course, the ship’s operability will be affected to a certain extent. We also encourage them to speak to us very early on as there are particular class requirements that need to be met as well. LR offers a range of services to the industry on how to select a suitable system and fit it with the least impact,” she added.One of the key issues to be tackled is the training of personnel on how to operate the new equipment, once the BWM systems are installed. “Proper training forms an essential element of a well-implemented ballast water management plan. Some companies have indicated that they are sending their shoreside management as well as their senior officers to vendor-specific training. Others are looking at computer-based and/or video training. Some owners are already in the initial phases of establishing criteria to verify the competency of those trained,” Kirk noted.“As part of a BWM plan all owners and operators must have a training plan in place, this is a mandatory requirement. They have to ensure personnel are trained and that a ballast water management officer is on board – this is not necessarily a person as it is a rank, so if one person leaves then there is a continuity of the BWM officer. It is their responsibility to ensure that the crew onboard are familiar with the requirements of the Convention and if they have a system on board, that they understand how to operate it. LR encourages our clients to speak to the manufacturers early if they are fitting a system so that they are well trained to use it,” Williams cautioned.World Maritime News Staff

In the second game of Saturday’s (boys/girls) double header with Union County, the Greensburg Pirates tied the Union County Patriots 2-2.Similarly to Thursday’s game, the action got started rather early with Union County scoring in the first minute and 46 seconds of the game. Also, similar to Thursday, Greensburg responded rather quickly. Less than 6 minutes later, Liam Krizman scored his first career goal off of a cross from Sage O’Mara. The Pirates and Patriots battled for the rest of the half to draw even 1-1.The second half was much of the same, with both teams getting good scoring chances, but playing even better defense. With around 8 minutes left, Union County scored to put the Patriots up 2-1. Unrelenting, Greensburg responded, and with 5 minutes left, Collin Springmeyer would score the equalizer to make sure the Pirates didn’t conceed another loss at home. It was Collin’s first goal of the season.The Pirates move to 0-1-1 on the season and will play Franklin County at home on Tuesday evening. Courtesy of Pirates Coach Cody DeVolld.Greensburg Lady Pirates Soccer had their opening home game and came out with a tie, 1-1.Greensburg found the back of the goal early when Macy Smith took a shot that was barely blocked by the Patriots keeper. Emily Rosales finished the shot off to collect the point with only nine minutes off the clock. With 13 minutes left in the half, Union County answered with a goal. Greensburg Keeper, Ella Lowe, only had to negotiate two shots on goal in the first half while the opposing keeper saw six shots by your Lady Pirates. The low amount of shots by Union County can be contributed to the ball-handling skills of Alaina Nobbe and the speed of Hilary Ernstes playing defensive back positions. The second half was a battle to the end. No points were scored but the Lady Pirates attempted 6 shots. Rosales led the team with 4 shots. Smith and Sierra Huffman had 3 shots on goal. Emily Million and Natalie Kalinowski each had one.Courtesy of Pirates Coach Ryan Morlan.
