May 2015 issue of Horizons out now

Horizons May 2015 thumbnailThe building of a series of powerful polar icebreakers, the growth of a cutting-edge enterprise zone in Norway and LR’s role in the classing and approving of two innovative LNG-fuelled ferries for Canada. These are just three of the highlights of the May 2015 issue of Horizons, LR’s marine magazine.

Specially produced for Norway’s leading exhibition and conference, Nor-Shipping 2015, the magazine features two 'firsts' – the world’s first methanol-powered ferry and a Finnish icebreaker that is the first-ever to be fuelled by LNG.

We’ve a 10-page polar special on the burgeoning industries of the Arctic and Antarctic with an eye-catching infographic that pinpoints a trans-continental range of global icebreaker projects LR is involved with in shipyards stretching from Vancouver to South Korea.

The magazine includes a four-page section on Norwegian enterprise and LR’s growing network of Nordic clients and Norway-based shipbuilding projects – and so an ideal introduction to Nor-Shipping from 2 to 5 June.

You can also read about the pioneering projects LR has worked on with BP Shipping (BPS) and the cruise ship operator Cunard. Both companies are celebrating anniversaries – 100 years for BPS and 175 for Cunard – and in this issue we recount the key moments in these two companies’ extraordinary histories.
