This edition includes some interim developments on three topics from the ShipInsight Guide series. These are Power and Propulsion, Fuel saving and Efficiency and Ballast Water Treatment. All are very topical issues and we are sure that you will find the articles interesting and informative. Some issues in ship- ping seem to develop and evolve over quite an extended time span and that has certainly been the case as far as ballast water has been concerned.
However, when things do happen they can move quite fast and it is very possible that some of what is included in this issue may have been overtaken by events. There were no new ratifications of the Ballast Convention at MEPC 69 but that is not to say that more signatures will not be added in the time between then and publication.
