Statistics show that

the number of ship collisions has fallen in the past decade, but as demand increases and the industry sails into new waters with autonomous ships, will navigation become more of a challenge? We find out in this issue of Ship Technology Global.

We ask whether Covid-19 has affected ports’ enforcement of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) 2020 Sulphur Cap regulations, and also find out about some of the maritime industry's positive contributions to help during the pandemic. We also find out more about how new technologies will usher in the next generation of ship cadet recruits, and ask how a new set of guidelines for risk assessment in the arctic could improve maritime safety.

Also in this issue: inside Wärtsilä’s move to drastically improve traffic management in the Baltic Sea, a special explainer feature about the role flag lists play in port state control, and an in-depth look at some of the practical applications of nanotechnology.
