Horizons July 2021

In the latest issue of LRQA's Horizons magazine, we’re celebrating our 150-year anniversary in Germany and revisit some of the momentous milestones we’ve achieved over the years. LRQA Group CEO Nick Brown and North Europe President Markus Buesig share their thoughts about Germany’s significance in the maritime industry. Alfred Hartmann, Chairman, Hartmann AG and President of the German Shipowners’ Association, takes a look at the current state of the German shipping sector and the biggest challenges it faces.

Following the recent announcement that LRQA will focus growth on the maritime industry, with an expanded role and service offering, Nick Brown explains how LRQA is now in the best shape to be the trusted partner in our clients’ transformation.

Digitalisation is a key focus in this issue – ship performance data, carbon intensity and operational efficiency are now top priorities for shipping. Find out how LRQA's digital network i4 Insight is using data to yield unprecedented benefits.

The drive to decarbonise is ever-present – you can read about how ports could be the catalyst for shipping’s zero-carbon transition, and a novel hydrogen jack-up concept that could fill the gap between low carbon and zero carbon fuels. Horizons also takes a detailed look at the impact of EEXI on the world fleet.

Also in this issue, LRQA experts examine how optimised stowage can help prevent container loss and the consequences of a cyber-attack on a major shipping channel. The benefits of shipping’s increased focus on artificial intelligence and machine learning are also explored.
