Issue Cover

Ships Monthly  |  No.594 FUTURE POWER  


The articles we have this month
represent something of a contrast.
The feature on liquid natural gas
(LNG)-powered ships looks to the
future, and examines how this new
fuel is being used in the modern shipping
industry. Considering the amount of pollution
emitted from conventionally powered ships,
it is not surprising that LNG as a marine
fuel is being considered by more and more
operators, with work recently getting under
way on the first LNG-powered containership
in the world at the General Dynamics NASSCO
shipyard in San Diego, California.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, we
have a feature covering some of the many
paddlers in and around Europe that are over
100 years old. It is extraordinary that there
are now no fewer than 34 paddlers still in
service that are more than 100 years old.
Those groups in Switzerland, Germany, Austria
and Norway who have worked to preserve
these vessels are to be congratulated on their
foresight so that these classic vessels can still
be enjoyed well into the 21st century.
And finally, we take a look at the cruising
industry past and present, with a feature
on the role P&O Cruises have played in the
development of the Australian cruise market,
which continues to grow, and the ships
operated ‘down under’. This is supplemented
by a look at the impressive sailing cruise ships,
which offer their passengers something a little
different while also being graceful and elegant
in their outward appearance.
