Safer, larger container ships, pioneering research into the potential for seaborne ethane and large ethane carriers and examples of German marine technology are three key themes of the September Horizons which will be available at SMM.
You can read about LR’s German team and their activities, the growing number of women joining the German shipping industry and the LR teams that have been shortlisted for the latest UK maritime awards.
We feature a Horizons ‘special’ on future fuels and how LNG is driving a growing fleet of global ferries, the development of LNG bunkering in major ports and how hybrid solutions are emerging in the quest for low-cost, fuel-efficient vessels.
