IPL 2019: CSK rope in all-rounder Scott Kuggeleijn as Lungi Ngidi replacement

first_imgIPL 2019: CSK rope in all-rounder Scott Kuggeleijn as Lungi Ngidi replacementScott Kuggeleijn has featured in two One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and four T20 Internationals for New Zealand so far.advertisement Indo-Asian News Service ChennaiMarch 31, 2019UPDATED: March 31, 2019 14:02 IST This will be Scott Kuggeleijn’s maiden appearance in the cash-rich T20 league (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSScott Kuggeleijn made his international debut for New Zealand in 2017Kuggeleijn had faced trials in 2016 and 2017 after he was charged with rape in Hamilton in 2015Ngidi was ruled out of the ongoing IPL with a shoulder injuryTwo-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Sunday announced the signing of Scott Kuggeleijn to replace injured Lungi Ngidi for the remainder of the IPL 2019 season.Kuggeleijn has featured in two One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and four T20 Internationals for New Zealand so far. This will be his maiden appearance in the cash-rich T20 league.On Saturday, CSK head coach Stephen Fleming had said they had gone in for Kuggeleijn, who bowls quick and bats well and added that he would be joining the squad next week.”For Lungi we’ve been a little bit more selective. It’s obviously a different level of replacement player (required for him) based on price. We’ve gone with Scott Kuggeleijn, who’s a New Zealand international, who bowls quick and bats well. So we’ve gone for an all-rounder who has good pace and good variations. He’ll be joining us next week,” Fleming told reporters.Interestingly, Kuggeleijn had faced trials in 2016 and 2017 after he was charged with rape in Hamilton in 2015. After a hung jury in the first trial, he was found not guilty of rape in the second despite the New Zealand cricketer conceding the woman in question had said no to sex.Ngidi was ruled out of the ongoing IPL even before its start after the South African pacer felt discomfort while bowling during the last ODI against Sri Lanka at Newlands recently.CSK suffered another blow on Saturday after all-rounder David Willey pulled out of the ongoing season because of personal reasons.advertisementEnglish cricketer Willey, who played three matches for the Super Kings in 2018, was quoted by Yorkshire County Cricket Club website as saying that “unfortunately due to some family reasons, I’ve had to pull out of the IPL”.”We are due for our second baby and my wife’s had a bit of a tough time, so I’m having to make sure she’s alright,” he said.”It’s a bit open-ended as to when I’ll be available for Yorkshire, but hopefully I’ll be available for the start of the 50-over competition,” Willey added.Last year, Willey was called up as a late replacement for an injured Kedar Jadhav by CSK and had been retained by the defending champions.Unfortunately, CSK won’t be able to replace Willey in the current season, Fleming confirmed.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Shahid Afridi says he did not blow whistle on spot-fixing scandal of 2010

first_img Press Trust of India KarachiMay 19, 2019UPDATED: May 19, 2019 19:45 IST File photo of former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSAfridi said he did not reveal the information about spot-fixing to the tabloid that broke the newsAfridi said he was not able to sleep for a few days when he 1st saw the spot-fixing messagesAsif, Amir and Butt were found guilty of involvement in spot-fixing in 2010Former captain Shahid Afridi Sunday said that he did not blow the whistle on the spot-fixing scandal that rocked world cricket during Pakistan’s tour of England in 2010.Having discussed in detail about the spot-fixing scandal in his autobiography ‘Game Changer’, Afridi insisted he did not pass on the information or messages to the tabloid ‘News of the World’ which eventually broke the story.”These players (Salman Butt, Muhammad Asif and Muhammad Aamir) still think that Lala (Afridi) blew the whistle about them to the newspaper that is not true. It was one of my friends in England who passed on the information without informing me and even after that the newspaper carried out its own investigation and sting operation to confirm and trap the players,” Afridi said on a news channel.Afridi said his former team-mate Abdul Razzaq had first talked about the involvement of some players with fixers when the team was playing the World T20 in West Indies in 2010.”Razzaq kept on telling me after one match against Sri Lanka that he had doubts about Salman Butt but I did not believe him at that time. I said they are like our younger brothers. Later on, as fate would have it a damaged mobile which went to a repair shop and whose owner knew my friend in England revealed messages that surprised me and made me suspect that these players were indeed spot-fixing matches,” he said.Afridi, who retired from international cricket in 2016, said he was hurt and disappointed when Butt’s involvement in the scandal was confirmed as he liked him a lot.advertisementHe also maintained when he first saw the messages about Butt, Asif and Aamir, he could not sleep for few days and did not have the courage to share it with Razzaq who realised something was wrong.Asked why he did not confront Butt and the other players about the messages, Afridi said he was let down by the reaction of the team management including Waqar Younis and Yawar Saeed when he first showed them the messages.”It was disappointing for me. My first job was to inform the management, I did that they said ‘beta kya karsakta hai ab (son, what we can do now)’. That is also why I gave up Test cricket and the captaincy and returned home.”He conceded that the management did try to warn the players not to meet or mix up with suspicious characters like Mazhar Majeed who was also eventually jailed for his role in the spot-fixing scandal.Afridi also revealed why he had supported the comeback of Aamir to the Pakistan team after he completed his ban.”When the ‘News of the World’ broke the story and I had returned to England for the limited over matches, I confronted the three players and told them to admit if they had done it as we could help them. Butt kept on denying and even took oath he had done nothing wrong. In contrast, the first time I confronted Aamir he came to me and admitted he had made a big mistake. He also confessed in court,” Afridi said.Afridi also repeated his comments about Javed Miandad and Waqar Younis which he made in his book.”I still have a lot of respect for both as players. But it is not necessary that a big player can be a good coach and it applied to both. Waqar changed after becoming captain and he had a different personality for the worst after becoming a coach.”He used to interfere in everything and tried to dictate terms. He even used to give me pieces of paper before we went onto the field as who to bowl, when and where to set fielding. As captain, this was annoying for me.”He also said that Waqar tried to spread rumours about him in the team and there was a lot of backbiting. Afridi said Miandad had a habit of getting involved in a tussle with players.”The reason we rate Bob Woolmer highly is he gave us space and never got involved in any tussle with the players.”Also Read | Yuvraj Singh considering retirement, may seek BCCI permission to play private T20 leaguesAlso Read | World Cup 2019: MS Dhoni invaluable to Team India, says Brendon McCullumAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Italian cops land a Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4

Lamborghini’s President and CEO, Stephan Winkelmann Editors’ Recommendations A Breakdown of All the Major Types of Car Racing Watch This Bugatti Chiron Shatter a World Speed Record at More Than 300 MPH center_img The Jeep Gladiator Helped Me Rediscover Fun Outdoors Dubai isn’t the only country with a menacing police vehicle arsenal. Italy – the land of supercars – has some serious law enforcement machines of its own, thanks to Lamborghini.This week, Lamborghini’s President and CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, has donated a 2015 Huracán LP610-4 to the Italian State Police.“We have a strong and fitting relationship with the Italian State Police. The new Lamborghini Huracán stands for Italian supercar excellence and we are proud to provide it to the Italian State Police to carry out the specialist tasks these police cars undertake,” Winkelmann said in a prepared statement.The all-new mid-engined supercar, clad in its “blu Polizia” paint scheme, replaces the fleet of Gallardos utilized by the Rome police department since 2004 and by the Bologna police since 2005. In 2008, however, the second-gen Gallardo replaced both municipalities first-gen raging bull interceptors.As standard, the Huracán comes fitted with a 610-horsepower 5.2-liter V10 and all-wheel drive. The police-equipped version, however, has even more specialized kit. Most notably, the Huracán Polizia includes a system called “Proof Video Data System.” The system uses a camera mounted near the rearview mirror and GPS data to identify, track, and calculate speed of offending vehicles on the highway.“Using radio data transmission, the video system in the Huracán Polizia transfers its images in real time to the relevant police station. There, the videos are stored and used for automatic number plate retrieval. This information can be used for immediate identification of stolen vehicles,” Lamborghini explains in a press release.Ensuring the specialized aerodynamics of the standard Huracán – capable of a top speed of 202 mph – aren’t compromised by the blue police light on the roof, a very thin LED light bar was developed. This allows the Huracán Polizia to reach much higher speeds than regular service vehicles. Additional white and blue lighting has been integrated into the front and rear bumper, as well as four sirens.What’ the takeaway from all of this? Well, if you were planning a trip to Italy this summer, avoid speeding on the Italian highways in your rented FIAT Panda. That is, unless – to you – seeing this forbidding law enforcer in the flesh is worth a couple hundred Euro. 10 Best Crime Documentaries on Netflix Right Now last_img read more

This is Some of the Best Salami in America

first_img Editors’ Recommendations Feasting is our column dedicated to cooking, grilling, eating and discovering what’s on the menu across America and the world.It’s no secret cured meat is one of our favorite things to talk about at The Manual. So when we have a chance to get some expert knowledge from a true pro, we’re all ears. Enter Cristiano Creminelli of Creminelli Fine Meats, an artisan salami producer based in Salt Lake City who was born into a family of award-winning salumieri that has been curing meats since the 1600s. He moved from his hometown of Biella, Italy in 2006 to bring his handcrafted salami to America and has been recognized by Bon Appétit, USA Today and won several national food awards since. We chatted with him to learn more about his favorite heritage breeds, how he’s putting a modern twist on classic family recipes and tips for the at-home curer.You began curing meats when you were a teenager as your father’s apprentice. Was the family business always something that interested you, or did your passion for it really begin when you started working in the shop?I always say to people my work isn’t really work. It’s my passion. I’m really lucky I get to do my hobby – something I really enjoy – as my job every single day. It’s like someone who loved golf got to play golf for a career. That’s how much I love it.I didn’t even consider anything else because I always knew I wanted to be a salumi artisan. My family has done it since the 1600s. I grew up in my father’s workshop – in fact, I was almost born in there!Your products are made using only heritage meats that are humanely raised and fed vegetarian diets. Can you speak about some of the farmers from which you source products? Are these people you’ve worked with for decades, or will you source from new farms as well if their ethics are in line with yours?I’ve been making salumi in the United States for only about eight years, and in the beginning we only worked with one or two farms in Utah. I worked with them because they raised heritage breeds I like (Duroc, same breed I worked with in Italy) and they raised them as they should be: NEVER in confinement cages (pigs are social creatures and like to be active and have their spaces to play, nap, eat and sleep), never treated with antibiotics and fed good food. One farm, Ballard Family Farms in northern Utah, is a great example of how good pig farming should be. They even raise all the feed for the pigs.As demand for the salumi grew, we had to look for more pig farmers who did the same thing, and we were lucky to find them in Iowa. So right now we work with a network of pig farmers who are raising great pigs. We’re always looking for farmers who do it correctly and to our high standards.Related: How to Cure Proscuitto at HomeCreminelli meats are made using traditional family recipes and techniques. Do you ever experiment with new ingredients for a modern take on the classics?All the time! I learned everything from my father and he learned from his family. In all, we probably know how to make about 800 different types of salumi. Tradition is a huge part of what I do. You see that in most of what I make, like the Tartufo that grinds whole black truffles with the heritage pork or Sopressata that’s beautiful with wine and garlic.But being in America, I feel like I’m making my own traditions. Here I can be a bit more creative and experiment with things, and people are willing to try them. A lot of the ideas are inspired by tradition. I know a great recipe for Grappa salami, but being in America, I didn’t know any grappa producers like I did in Italy. But High West Distillery was close by, and they make a great bourbon-rye blend called “Son of Bourye,” so I adapted the recipe and Whiskey Salami was born.It also can happen on the farmer level. I once met pig farmer who raised beautiful Berkshire hogs. When he invited me over for dinner and cooked up a simple meal of pork chops seasoned with nothing but salt, I was inspired by the flavor. Berkshire meat is a bit than Duroc, and his pigs were fed apples from his orchard. I had just moved to America and thought what a great homage to my new home – American pigs raised on apples, juicy and sweet, a flavor that pairs great with ground cinnamon and ground ginger. As American as apple pie. So that’s how American salami came to be.We’re really interested in curing meats at home. Do you have any tips for the first timer on how to do it safely and effectively?I am seeing so much excitement from people to make their own salumi, it’s wonderful. People can definitely try it at home. These are the tips I give:1) If you are new, start with whole muscle cures. Prosciutto, lomo/lonza, coppa – they are a great way to understand fresh meat, how it interacts with salt and aging. Plus, it’s pretty safe and you can get some great flavor.2) I know nitrates are considered bad, but if you’re going to cure meat, I don’t mind telling people to be safe and use the curing salt, sometimes called “pink salt.” It has a bit of nitrate in there as insurance against any bad bacteria that may be lingering in the atmosphere and on food contact surfaces of where you’re aging. In the end, it’s not very much added nitrates for some extra safety.3) Don’t be afraid of mold. I know meat and mold make people uncomfortable, but mold is beautiful in aging. White mold is perfection.3) Salami is probably the hardest thing to do because it’s not just carefully dried but actually fermented with the use of a starter culture. I know everyone wants to do it, but it takes a lot of practice and could be dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing.Lactic acid is what cheesemakers use to turn fresh milk into cheese. I use that to make fresh pork into salumi. It took me years to perfect, and I’m always learning and adapting as well. If fermenting meat is something you want to do, I would say to get comfortable with whole muscle aging. Then if you want to try, refer to guides such as those found in the book “Salumi” by Michael Ruhlman. Other than that, watch your humidity and air temperature.To learn more about Creminelli Fine Meats and their products, visit creminelli.com.

NHT to Introduce Intergenerational Mortgage

first_imgStory Highlights This initiative, he said, will allow flexibility in how a family member can support a beneficiary in acquiring an NHT property. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says the National Housing Trust (NHT) will be introducing an intergenerational mortgage programme in the upcoming fiscal year. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says the National Housing Trust (NHT) will be introducing an intergenerational mortgage programme in the upcoming fiscal year.This initiative, he said, will allow flexibility in how a family member can support a beneficiary in acquiring an NHT property.“The aim is for a younger sibling or child to agree to carry the mortgage obligation, subject to affordability, when the older mortgagor retires or dies,” Mr. Holness said.The Prime Minister was making his contribution to the 2019/20 Budget Debate in the House of Representatives on Tuesday (March 19).He explained that under this programme, the beneficiary’s loan will be scheduled to retirement over a 60-year period, and will include the portion of the costs to be covered during the period from the date of the loan to retirement.“For example, if the beneficiary has 20 years to retirement, then it would be a 20/60 or 1/3 ratio of the cost of the solution, which will be factored into the required payment,” he noted.The Prime Minister said the beneficiary will be required to present an “heir” to the NHT – a younger sibling or child – who will consent to repaying the outstanding amounts on the cost of the asset, which will be adjusted to current values.“That sibling will be allowed to take over the asset if they agree to various terms, including allowing the beneficiary to occupy the premises for (an agreed period) of time. The cycle may be repeated for a second heir to take over the housing solution,” he indicated.The Prime Minister said this initiative is meant to support capital accumulation “in really poor families, because now you can pool your wealth, which is not always possible. This is a practical way of ensuring that we give everybody a shot at homeownership”.A maximum of 10 per cent of NHT’s constructed solutions will be accessible under this programme in the initial stages and selection will be based on the age of the applicant, the number of years the applicant has contributed to the NHT and the assessed ability of the heir to carry the mortgage when the obligation passes. “The aim is for a younger sibling or child to agree to carry the mortgage obligation, subject to affordability, when the older mortgagor retires or dies,” Mr. Holness said.last_img read more

first_img “We have recovered 726 firearms, including 62 rifles, to date, as compared to 515 firearms, including 32 rifles this time in 2016. In terms of ammunition, for the corresponding period, the figures show an increase of almost three times that of the related period last year, moving to 20,491 rounds compared to 7,341 rounds,” Mr. Holness said. He said the driving factors are well known, and include gang warfare compounded by extortion, lottery scamming, drugs and contract killings, which account for more than 70 per cent of murders committed, with estimates as high as 80 per cent. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says the Government intends to strengthen measures to address the prevalence and ease of access to guns and ammunition.The Prime Minister, who was speaking in the House of Representatives on Tuesday (October 31), said the Government “considers this to be a national emergency and will expand on the strategies to deal with this issue at a later date”.He cited the rising murder rate, which now stands at approximately 300 above the figure for the corresponding period last year.He said the driving factors are well known, and include gang warfare compounded by extortion, lottery scamming, drugs and contract killings, which account for more than 70 per cent of murders committed, with estimates as high as 80 per cent.He said the inability of persons to resolve conflicts peacefully is also contributing to the murder figures.The Prime Minister noted that some of the strategies that are being employed to address the flow of guns and ammunition are yielding results.“We have recovered 726 firearms, including 62 rifles, to date, as compared to 515 firearms, including 32 rifles this time in 2016. In terms of ammunition, for the corresponding period, the figures show an increase of almost three times that of the related period last year, moving to 20,491 rounds compared to 7,341 rounds,” Mr. Holness said.The Prime Minister said that the scourge of crime cannot be tackled with quick fixes, noting that “we must get to the root of the problems”.“The strategies must establish stability and long-lasting, transformational results,” he pointed out.The Prime Minister said the Zones of Special Operations is a “whole-of-government response” to crime in a strategic, coordinated and sustainable manner, and that the ultimate aim is to secure the right to life of all citizens.

DART Returns from Dominica

first_imgThe Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART), which was deployed to Dominica in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, has returned to the island, having assisted with rebuilding operations in that country.This was disclosed by Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, during a Statement to the House of Representatives on Tuesday (December 5).The team was deployed to the Caribbean territory for two months, where they provided engineering work, debris-removal assistance, security, logistics management of relief supplies as well as health services.“Of specific significance is that the bridge leading to one of the main tourist attractions – the Wotten Waven Hot Springs – was destroyed. The JDF engineers… constructed that bridge, so that the attraction can be opened next year for the winter season when their cruise ships come,” Mr. Holness said.He added that the repaired bridge is scheduled to be opened in January 2018. The 130-man disaster assistance team was led by Colonel Jamie O’Gilvie.last_img read more

She explains that the restriction is necessary to facilitate ongoing and critical road improvement works along the corridor. The restriction will be limited to a 2 kilometer section of the roadway between the community of Broadgate and the Westmoreland Bridge and will be in place for only six hours each day. The National Works Agency (NWA) is reminding the motoring public that the restriction of access to a section of the Broadgate to Agualta Vale/Junction Road, St. Mary, begins this morning at 9. Story Highlights The National Works Agency (NWA) is reminding the motoring public that the restriction of access to a section of the Broadgate to Agualta Vale/Junction Road, St. Mary, begins this morning at 9.The restriction will be limited to a 2 kilometer section of the roadway between the community of Broadgate and the Westmoreland Bridge and will be in place for only six hours each day.According to Acting Manager, Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Ramona Lawson, the section which will be closed at 9 each morning, will be reopened at 3 p.m. in the afternoons. She explains that the restriction is necessary to facilitate ongoing and critical road improvement works along the corridor.She says the current phase of works involves mainly rock excavation and the unstable, steep embankments will cause large boulders to be deposited on the roadway making it very unsafe for vehicles to use the particular section while these activities are taking place. She says traffic will return to using the area normally within the next four months. The 6-hour restriction does not apply to public holidays and so motorists will be able to travel through the area for the entire day on such days during the period.The roadway from Broadgate to Agualta Vale is being widened and realigned in sections to create a 7 meter-wide two-lane corridor complete with safety features including retaining walls and shoulders on both sides of the roadway.2/…6 hour restriction Junction Road section starts todayThe Capital A Project, which is valued at 597 million dollars, also includes major drainage improvement works where the recurrent slippage of the roadway at an area known as Chovey is to be corrected. The current project is being implemented under Phase One of the larger Toms River to Agualta Vale GOJ Road Improvement Project.Contact:Ramona Lawson Natalee BloomfieldManager (Acting) Communication OfficerCommunication and Customer Services 876-733-4180Tel: 876-482-1795/733-4182Natalee BloomfieldManager (Acting) Communication OfficerCommunication and Customer Services 876-733-4180last_img read more

CMA CGM’s Profit Edges Down in 2015

first_imgzoom French container shipping major CMA CGM has reported a volume growth of 6.3% year-on-year in 2015, reaching 13 million TEUs, a major factor that helped curb further decline of the company’s consolidated revenue that went down 6.4% year-on-year reaching USD 15.7 billion.The group’s consolidated net profit had a pretty stable run, totaling in USD 567 million, somewhat lower than in 2014 when the company recorded USD 584 million in profit benefiting from a positive exchange rate impact.The company attributed the volume growth to the new Ocean Three Alliance in place since January 2015 with China Shipping and UASC along with the company’s expansion in the United States.“Our operating performance once again illustrates the strength of our business model and our capacity to adapt. In a challenging market environment, we continued to roll out our strategy while adjusting our cost and financing structure to best effect,” says Rodolphe Saadé, CMA CGM Group Vice-Chairman.With respect to the outlook for 2016,  the company said that the very start of 2016 is tough and marked by freight rates under pressures which will impact industry profitability.Against this backdrop, CMA CGM said it would continue working on optimising its lines and cost reduction program combining “rigorous operational practices, optimal fleet utilization, reduction of energy consumption, and strict control of all its spending.”The french liner also plans to resume its acquisition of Singapore-based NOL, the world’s 12th-largest shipping company. The USD 2.4 billion acquisition, which is pending clearance from the various competent authorities, is said to be “progressing in line with the initially announced timeline” and should be closed by the end of the year.“At the same time, we entered a decisive new stage in our development with the project to acquire NOL. The project is progressing in line with expectations. Combined with our intrinsic capacity to deliver solid operating results, this project will make us more competitive going forward,” Saadé went on to say.CMA CGM’s acquisition of shares in proposed takeover of NOL is about to reach 5% mark with the latest share acquisition.The combination of APL’s vessels (0.54 Mteu) with ships of the CMA CGM Group (1.79 Mteu) would create a combined fleet of 2.33 Mteu with an 11.5% global capacity share, based on Alphaliner figures.This year will also see CMA CGM deploy its flagship fleet of six 18,000-TEU vessels in the Transpacific, starting at the end of May.last_img read more

Creditors Consider Another Rescue Package for DSME

first_imgzoom Creditors of the cash strapped Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering are looking to secure another rescue package for the company of up to KRW 3 trillion (USD 2.6 billion), Yonhap News Agency cited industry sources.Led by the state-run Korea Development Bank (KDB), the creditors said that the financial support would be provided amid a decrease in new shipbuilding orders.Although the shipbuilder was expected to score up to KRW 13.7 trillion of new orders during 2016, it managed to secure only a small portion of this goal with a total of KRW 1.77 trillion of newbuilding contracts during the year, while the owner of two drilling rigs, which were constructed by the yard, decided to push the delivery of these KRW 1 trillion-worth vessels to 2017.In late 2016, DSME’s creditors unveiled their intentions to support the ailing shipbuilder with some KRW 2.8 trillion through debt to equity conversion and bonds sale.Under the plan, KDB said it would convert KRW 1.8 trillion of debt into equity, after it earlier converted around KRW 400 billion worth of loans into DSME stocks.In January 2017, the bank increased its ownership in the shipbuilder from 49.74 percent to 79.04 percent.The second creditor, the Export-Import Bank of Korea, added that it would buy KRW 1 trillion worth of bonds to be sold by the shipbuilding company.Driven by the decrease in new orders, DSME said that it plans to undertake a KRW 2.5 trillion self-rescue plan during 2017.Larger than last year’s KRW 1.6 trillion plan, the new measures would include further decrease in its workforce by up to 2,000 workers. By the end of 2017 the company’s workforce is expected to drop to a total of 8,500 workers.The plan also includes the disposal of DSME’s non-core assets, such as its IT business, as well as its buildings and floating docks with a total worth of around KRW 500 billion.Additionally, the shipbuilder decided to cut its 2017 goal for new ship orders to USD 5.5 billion after its 2016 orderbook fell short of expectations.Separately, DSME released financial results for 2016 which show that the shipbuilder reduced its full-year loss to KRW 2.7 trillion (USD 2.4 billion) from KRW 3.3 trillion (USD 2.9 billion) seen in 2015.The shipbuilder’s operating loss was also reduced and amounted to KRW 1.6 trillion in 2016, against an operating loss of KRW 2.9 trillion recorded a year earlier.In addition, DSME posted a revenue of KRW 12.7 trillion in 2016, lower from a revenue of KRW 15 trillion in 2015.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more
