Horizons - January 2015
Why not start the New Year with a flourish with the January 2015 issue of Lloyd’s Register’s marine magazine, Horizons.
We have some big news for you with two world firsts. There’s the amazing story behind the classing of the world’s largest ship, Allseas’ Pieter Schelte, a heavy lift and pipelay vessel built by DSME in South Korea. Then there’s the pioneering story of the conversion of the Nordic cruise ferry, Stena Germanica, to methanol-as-a-fuel, the first seagoing vessel to use methanol as a power source. Another notable first is our exclusive story about the re-branding of V.Ships, the world’s largest ship management company. V.Group’s Executive Director, Bob Bishop, speaks to Horizons about the launch of their new brand and their exciting plans for 2015 and onwards. Read about the latest awards LR has won including the exciting Lynceus project that pinpoints passengers and crew cut adrift at sea and several recognitions of our role as a leading global safety organisation. Plus of course news of our latest wins from around the world.
