The Journal - Spring 2016

The latest news from important bodies such as the IMO and class societies as well as a number of regular sections that explore other aspects of shipping.

This edition includes some interim developments on two topics from the ShipInsight Guide series. These are Paints, Coatings and Corrosion and Environmental Technology. We also have a feature that explores some topical issues connected with Passenger Ship Design & Technology.

Also in this journal are a conversation with Transas’ Frank Coles, a look at ship recycling and a look at the five short-listed candidates for Wartsila’s Marine Mastermind innovation competition. To tie in with the passenger ship technology feature, the world passenger vessel orderbook comes under the spotlight in our regular shipbuilding feature.
