This edition of the ShipInsight Journal coincides with the year’s largest shipping event in Europe and so takes an in-depth look at the Nor-Shipping exhibition.
It features all of the candidates for the two ship and young entrepreneurs awards and at some of the ways the country that has been the acknowledged offshore powerhouse in recent years is trying to re-invent itself.
ShipInsight also looks at the offshore ship construction sector on a global scale. Norway’s offshore industry is not the only one to be affected. After the slowdown in cargo ship newbuilding that followed the 2008 downturn, many countries yards turned their attention to offshore ships. Brazil, once the world’s second largest shipbuilder had been reviving its ship construction fortunes on the back off the offshore boom and for some yards there the renaissance has been short-lived.
There is also an article on disruptive sustainability – a term from the business management sector that has infiltrated into shipping. Is it something new or can shipping show the millennial generation a thing or two about the real meaning of adapting to change?
