What can the maritime industry learn from the year when everything changed? LR’s new Marine & Offshore Director, Mark Darley, and new Maritime Performance Services Director, Andy McKeran, reflect on the challenges of the past year and look forward to the opportunities to build back better. Also in this issue, our experts examine the effect of the coronavirus pandemic on global trade, the cruise industry and port cyber security. Plus, hear how maritime technology start-up Greywing helped more than 25,000 seafarers to travel home.
With decarbonisation continuing to dominate the maritime news agenda, Horizons examines the benefits, drawbacks and current status of ammonia as a potential marine fuel. There’s a snapshot of the industry’s attitude towards decarbonisation in the results of our survey, conducted in collaboration with Lloyd’s List. You can read about Watson Farley & Williams’ latest report that highlights what is needed to meet GHG targets and evolving ESG criteria. And Paul Stuart-Smith, Executive Director at Zero Carbon Finance, shares his thoughts on why decarbonising shipping will require forward-thinking companies to take commercial decisions based on robust analysis of climate-related risks and opportunities, driven by rapidly evolving ESG criteria.
As the offshore wind sector prepares for exponential growth in the U.S., Horizons explores the opportunities in this sector, while also investigating the cost of underinvestment in oil & gas. Plus, our experts at Nettitude and Hanseaticsoft look at the latest trends in cyber security and digitalisation. And read about our cover star, RRS Sir David Attenborough, Britain’s new polar research ship.
