Seatec International Maritime Review 1/2016

In this issue of Seatec we take a look at the Finnish finishing touches to the Harmony of the Seas cruise ship and the large-scale overhaul for cruise ship Silja Serenade by RMC shipyard. Alongside the news from busy shipyards we put our focus on the challenges and chances the constantly changing marine industry provides us - not least the race for becoming ever eco-friendlier and safer offshore nor the exploding popularity of LNG and the influences and demands it brings along with it. ABB and Wärtsilä have their own solutions – maybe a brand new laboratory or a competition to explore new innovations would do the trick to get on top of the wave?

Seatec International Maritime Review 2/2012

This issue of SEATEC is very much dedicated to two dazzling sea princesses: AIDAmar and Viking Grace. AIDAmar already had her ball in the spring, as this sixth vessel in AIDa’s Sphinx series was inaugurated. Over million people turned up to witness the fireworks, which bodes well for the entire industry. Viking Grace, on the other hand, will set sail in 2013, claiming the mantle of the most environmentally friendly large cruise ferry ever. Use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to power this beauty means that emissions into the sea have been totally eliminated, and emissions into the air cut decisively.
