PowerHaul arrival brings GE into European loco market

first_imgUK: The first two GE Transportation PowerHaul locomotives for Freightliner were unloaded at the South Wales port of Newport on November 7-8, after crossing the Atlantic onboard the ship BBC Kusan. ‘We are excited today with the arrival of the first PowerHaul locomotives as this represents GE Transportation’s entry to the UK and European marketplace’, said Brett BeGole, General Manager of Global Locomotive Operations at GE Transportation. ‘The PowerHaul Series is GE’s most technologically advanced, fuel-efficient and low-emissions diesel-electric freight locomotive to date.’ Freightliner Group Engineering Director Tim Shakerley said he was ‘extremely proud’ to formally unveil 70001 and 70002 on the dockside on November 8. ‘This product is a culmination of two years of hard work and partnership with GE, in order to produce a locomotive that will increase our haulage capabilities and bring further reduction to our carbon emissions.’ Freightliner claims that ‘based on the current fleets and power generation, the PowerHaul locomotive emits less carbon per gross-tonne mile moved than electric locomotives’. PowerHaul is ‘in excess of 10 times better than its road equivalent’. The order for 30 PH37ACmi locomotives was announced in November 2007. The next four have left GE Transportation’s Erie plant and are due to arrive in the UK next month. These initial six locomotives are fitted with monitoring equipment to provide the manufacturer with an early warning of any teething problems.last_img read more

Four Players the Indians Need to Step Up in the Second Half of the Regular Season

first_img Matt Loede The Indians enter the All-Star break at seven games over .500, sitting at 47-40, which is five games below where they were last year at this very point.The team is still very much the odds on favorite to win the American League Central, and with the Tigers and White Sox both looking like sellers, it looks like the competition in the division will be the Twins and Royals.Thus far in 2017 the Indians have gotten huge first halves from the likes of Jose Ramirez, Corey Kluber and Michael Brantley, but they also have plenty of question marks from a number of players considered key to the teams’ success.Today we take a look at four such players, their outlook for the second half, and what we can expect from those players and if they will indeed have a big impact on the Indians drive to a second straight AL Central crown and hopeful defense of their American League title.

Cavs Embarrassed In Toronto, Fall To Raptors 133-99; Three Takeaways From The Blowout Loss

first_imgIt’s safe to say Cleveland was not prepared for what the Toronto Raptors brought on Thursday night. Fresh off of a drubbing at the hands of the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Cavaliers entered the North side of the border with an intent to get back in the right column. However, that was the furthest from what actually happened during the contest. While not having Kyle Lowry or Serge Ibaka should have limited Toronto, it certainly did not. Fred Van Vleet had a field day. That’s what kind of day it was.Let’s look at the three takeaways from tonight.1. Van Vleet Balls Out- Former Wichita State Shocker Fred Van Vleet had an excellent night Thursday, scoring 22 points on 8-of-11 shooting while also collecting four rebounds and four assists. Van Vleet obviously saw more time due to the Lowry absence and flourished mightily in a fill-in job.For Van Vleet, it’s only good things from here in terms of minutes in Toronto. For Cleveland, it’s quite alarming. Fred Van Vleet should never be the leading-scorer for the opposition in a blowout loss.2. Paint Domination- If Cleveland had problems before on the glass, they certainly have more now. Being out rebounded 63-35 is absolutely disgraceful and is not what the Cavs have in mind with a superb rebounder in both units in Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson. That wasn’t the case.Jonas Valanciunas collected eighteen rebounds and Jakob Poeltl finished with twelve rebounds to completely embarrass the Cavs on the glass.3. Agendas Of Their Own- After the game, Cavs Head Coach Tyronn Lue discusses that maybe the Cavs aren’t playing well due to some “personal agendas”. When asked with a follow-up on if he believes in the theory, lue said he didn’t know.That’s alarming, no matter how badly you want to brush the loss under the rug. With every dismantling, Cleveland is becoming unglued. Can they get it back on track? Related Topics Eli Mooneyhamcenter_img Elijah Mooneyham has been a dedicated sports fan his whole life.

Manchester United Striker Anthony Martial Suffers Muscle Injury

first_imgManchester United forward Anthony Martial is an injury doubt for the Premier League clash at Everton on Sunday after he pulled out of the Red Devils Europa League last-32, second leg 5-0 win against Club Brugges on Thursday due to injury.United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said the French international, who has scored in his last three games including last week’s 1-1 draw in Brugges, felt a muscle injury in the final training session before the return at Old Trafford.“He didn’t feel right during the training yesterday, or he walked off during the training, and he is injured so hopefully it won’t be too bad,” Solskjaer told the club’s official television channel before the 5-0 victory against Bruges on Thursday.“But I don’t really know yet how long it will be.”Martial, 24, missed over seven weeks of action due to a thigh strain towards the start of this season but has managed to score 15 goals in 31 games in all competitions.His injury puts yet more strain on a United side who are missing fellow striker Marcus Rashford with a back problem and record signing midfielder Paul Pogba with an ankle injury.United have won their last two Premier League games and are fifth, three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, but trail runaway leaders Liverpool by 38 points after 27 games.RelatedOdion Ighalo Set To Profit From Anthony Martial’s MisfortuneFebruary 28, 2020In “England”Ighalo Is What Manchester United “Have Been Lacking” – SolskjaerFebruary 28, 2020In “England”Solsjkaer Gives Verdict On Ighalo’s Chances Of Starting Against Former Side WatfordFebruary 21, 2020In “England”last_img read more
