Hoyer Group boosts its LNG business

first_imgIn addition to LNG logistics, Hoyer Group is expanding its fleet by including LNG trucks as well as CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) vehicles. Engines fuelled with liquid natural gas emit around 15 per cent less CO2 emissions and approximately 60 per cent less nitrogen oxides compared to conventional diesel engines. An LNG engine also consumes less fuel. HOYER has already put four LNG trucks and seven CNG vehicles on the road. German logistics services provider Hoyer Group is expanding its liquefied natural gas (LNG) transport business footprint. In its statement, the company said that all of its equipment has the necessary approvals entitling the company to load at major European LNG storage terminals. Ortwin Nast, chief executive officer of the Hoyer Group says, “expanding our truck fleet by including climate-friendly trucks is a logical consequence.” Courtesy of Hoyer Group The market for alternative energies is growing rapidly worldwide. This trend has prompted the Hoyer Group to take the step further. The company noted in its statement that LNG also shows potential as a fuel. The company’s portfolio of services in this segment includes supplies to petrol stations and deliveries to industrial companies, as well as, supply to shipping. Overall, the demand for LNG as fuel for road transport, industry and shipping is growing. As a response, the Hoyer Group is accelerating the LNG transport business. The topic of alternative drive systems will be followed up intensively in the future. The steady expansion of the service station infrastructure, together with attractive measures such as exempting LNG trucks from highway tolls reinforces the trend towards LNG trucks, despite higher acquisition costs compared to their diesel equivalents, the company said.last_img read more

Syracuse outworked on glass in 71-59 loss to No. 14 Buffalo

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Published on December 18, 2018 at 11:47 pm Contact Billy: [email protected] | @Wheyen3center_img With about seven minutes left on Tuesday, Buffalo’s Davonta Jordan slid inside Syracuse’s Oshae Brissett. Jordan, a 6-foot-2 guard, stands six inches shorter than Brissett. But as UB’s Jeremy Harris rose up for a 3-pointer, Jordan established inside position near the left block. When Harris’ shot missed and deflected directly toward the left block, Jordan leaped up for the ball, came down with it and went back up to finish. His bucket broke a tie, put the Bulls up two and they never trailed again.“Coming into this game, we just knew we played harder than (Syracuse),” Jordan said. “Play hard, and things just fall right into place.”Syracuse (7-4) struggled to gather defensive rebounds all game during its 71-59 loss to No. 14 Buffalo (11-0). The Bulls hauled in 18 offensive rebounds and won the overall battle of the glass, 48-35. Syracuse is the tallest team in the country, per KenPom, but the Orange hold a rebounding margin over their opponents of just plus-4 this year. The 18 offensive boards from Buffalo on Tuesday were the most the Orange have allowed this season, and it cost them in their second-straight nonconference loss at home.It started right from the game’s opening possession. CJ Massinburg missed a jumper but gathered his own offensive rebound. Syracuse’s Elijah Hughes blocked Massinburg on his ensuing shot, but it was a sign of things to come.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBuffalo couldn’t cash in on the offensive glass early, as another possession a few minutes later finished with two misses from an offensive board in between. It gave the Bulls hope, though, believing they could win even though shots hadn’t fallen in the first half, they said after the game. But more than anything, it showed Syracuse’s centers still weren’t up to snuff.It’s been a topic of conversation all season. Head coach Jim Boeheim has criticized his centers after almost every game. Two losses in a row, to two mid-major opponents, Syracuse has been outrebounded by smaller opposition. Again, Boeheim harped on his centers’ play.“Our centers have not gotten better,” Boeheim said. “That’s pretty glaring right now.”The Bulls had to cash in eventually, and about three minutes into the second half, they started to. Harris missed a 3 but Jordan gathered in his first offensive rebound. In the second chance opportunity, Jordan got an open 3 and knocked it down. Syracuse had allowed the 6-foot-2 guard to grab an offensive rebound, even though he was shorter than all five of SU’s players on the floor.“They play a small lineup but they rebound well out of it,” Boeheim said.As Buffalo came back from its four-point halftime deficit, its offensive rebounding went dry. But that wasn’t Syracuse’s doing. Rather, the Bulls finally began to hit shots. Buffalo wasn’t changing its approach. It hindered SU’s fast break possibilities, as Boeheim pointed out that if a team can’t rebound, it can’t run. And as the Bulls had all game, they sent three or four guys to the glass every time.“They’re a physical team so they were just able to get inside position,” SU’s Jalen Carey said. “That’s things we got to learn off of. We want to rebound, and once we rebound, that’s able to get us into our offense. We want to get up and down. We had a little bit of trouble with it today, and as you could see, that’s why the game stayed the way it was.”But there was one more offensive rebound waiting to do Syracuse in. With under three minutes to go, Harris shot another 3 and missed, again. But UB’s 6-foot-8 Nick Perkins rose up along the right side of the lane. Marek Dolezaj, 6-foot-10, was in at center for Syracuse. Brissett was nearby, as were 6-foot-6 guards Elijah Hughes and Tyus Battle. It didn’t matter. Perkins rose above them all to snatch the ball.Two passes later, Massinburg sliced down the lane, spun and finished high off the glass. Buffalo didn’t cash in on all of its offensive boards, finishing with 12 second-chance points off of 17 offensive rebounds. But with Syracuse down five, less than three minutes to go and an absolutely necessary rebound suspended in mid-air, Syracuse didn’t want it enough. Perkins did.“I thought they were tougher than us,” Boeheim said, “the last 10 minutes especially.”last_img read more

Walsall 1-3 Barnsley (1-6 agg): Tykes rout Saddlers on way to Wembley

first_imggetty images 1 Adam Hammill scored Barnsley’s opening goal center_img Barnsley will return to Wembley for the second time this season to contest the Sky Bet League One play-off final after overcoming Walsall 6-1 on aggregate.The Tykes, Johnstone’s Paint Trophy winners at the national stadium just last month, had a comfortable 3-0 lead from the first leg in Yorkshire on Saturday but they did not rest on their laurels at the Banks’s Stadium and had chances to extend their overall advantage before Adam Hammill did so after 18 minutes.The chances continued to come for the visitors, with the superb Conor Hourihane Walsall’s chief tormentor, but they had to wait until the 66th minute before Ashley Fletcher extended their lead.Substitute Jordan Cook’s superb long-range goal five minutes from time was a strike deserving of more than mere consolation but the scoring was not finished as Josh Brownhill netted late on to make it 3-1 on the night – a repeat of Barnsley’s win at Walsall in the league in March.The Tykes will be back at Wembley on May 29 where they will bid to become the first team since Grimsby in 1998 to win the Football League Trophy and clinch promotion via the play-offs. They will face either Yorkshire rivals Bradford or Millwall, who resume their semi-final tie at The Den on Friday night with the Lions 3-1 ahead.Walsall survived an almighty scare in the eighth minute when an unmarked Alfie Mawson mistimed his header inside the six-yard box following a Hourihane corner.The Saddlers went close as Andy Taylor narrowly missed the top corner with a free-kick on the edge of the box before another superb delivery into the penalty area from Hourihane fell to Hammill’s feet and the winger kept his cool to slot the ball past goalkeeper Neil Etheridge.It all but settled the tie but Barnsley looked to turn the screw regardless and Hourihane almost forced James O’Connor to put the ball into his own net but Etheridge reacted quickly to block.Another Hourihane cross from the right found Sam Winnall at the far post but Etheridge denied him at point-blank range.Walsall were really riding their luck but came into the game a little more either side of the half-hour mark. Tom Bradshaw scuffed his shot wide and then Jordy Hiwula directed Rico Henry’s driven cross just wide.And when the Saddlers did register an effort on target they found Adam Davies on top form as he dived at full stretch to his right to push away Bradshaw’s header. Back at the other end, Etheridge twice had to deny Fletcher before half-time.Walsall began the second half brightly but came within a whisker of falling further behind when Paul Downing poked the ball inches wide of his own net.Davies produced another fine save to push away Adam Chambers’ 20-yard strike on the hour before goalscorer Hammill turned creator with a cross which Fletcher controlled inside the penalty area before firing the ball home.Davies was finally beaten by Cook’s inch-perfect curler into the top corner of the net before a defensive mix-up in the final minute allowed Lloyd Isgrove to set up Brownhill to smash home Barnsley’s third goal of the night.last_img read more
