Horizons - May 2013
Find out what the global fleet will look like in 2030 and why China and India will lead the world in several significant sectors in the latest issue of Horizons, Lloyd’s Register’s marine magazine. These are just two of the highlights of a major LR report, Global Marine Trends 2030, featured in this issue which forecasts likely changes in the next 20 years.
You can read about the exciting trials and tests that are being made on methanol as an alternative fuel for modern vessels and find out about several projects studying sailpower as a power source of the future – even if they don’t revert back to those graceful wooden galleons of the 17th and 18th centuries. There are several “firsts” such as the largest Lloyd’s Register-classed ship to be built in Vietnam, LR’s ISO 50001certification for a Danish shipowner and the cutting-edge Clean Sky design developed by COSCO, Golden Union and LR for a next-generation LNG-powered bulk carrier.
A Lloyd’s Register special supplement, Gas Technology, an up-to-the-minute report on gas solutions, is included as a free insert with the May Horizons.
