Lloyd’s Register’s January 2014 Horizons magazine is even brighter and better than before with our re-branded design and logo, featuring stories about LR events and achievements around the globe and an exciting end-of-year flurry of awards from Korea to the UK among others.
Find out about the quiet revolution in ferry travel and how yesterday’s primitive horse-drawn vessels have evolved into the hybrid ferries of today in a special eight-page section on newbuild ferry design and construction.
You can read a series of thought-provoking articles on fuel efficiency and the engines of the future and how a Canadian company recently converted to LNG. Then see if you can spot the key events as they happened in the LNG story in our specially produced map of the world.
And to end with something completely different, discover the mysteries of a remarkable augmented reality project LR has been involved with. It could just change the way builders and architects design the vessels of tomorrow.
