lr logossssThe new, bumper size edition of Horizons, Lloyd’s Register’s marine magazine is out now. In this special Posidonia issue, you can read the pithy and perceptive views of eight leading Greek shipping figures as they reflect on Greece’s present and future.

Find out about Lloyd’s Register’s role in one of the UK’s largest current infrastructure projects – the building of two UK supercarriers at six different ports. We also feature the build-up to the launch of one of them, HMS Queen Elizabeth, by the Queen in July this year.

Another LR project featured in the magazine is the building of the giant Shell Prelude, a floating liquefied natural gas platform which, once complete, will be the largest ship ever constructed.

And to reflect LR’s extensive work and research on future fuels, we’ve included a ‘Lloyd’s Register Top Five’ wall chart or pullout with a guide to the main fuel choices from LNG to methanol and HFO among others.

A PDF of the magazine can be downloaded now at www.lr.org/horizons. If you require a hard copy please contact the editor Chris Browne at chris.browne@lr.org.
