MarPro-1Q-2011-copy-(1)_web.jpg

By Joseph Keefe, lead commentator of MaritimeProfessional.com and Managing Editor of Maritime Professional, print edition   Maritime Risk is the tight focus of the first edition of Maritime Professional magazine; the maritime industry’s newest and most exciting periodical print vehicle. That’s because MarPro – as we fondly refer to it in-house here at the New Wave media group – is set to take you and your clients places that they’ve never been before. And, although we provide the digital edition of this 64-page, information packed magazine for your preview (click here for digital edition), the print edition will also make its debut at the 2011 Connecticut Maritime Association show in Stamford, on 21 March. The waterfront’s print genre will never be the same.   Borne from the enormous success of our online website of the same name, MarPro leverages the power of almost 14,000 online members and the combined following of the New Wave media stable of magazines (Maritime Reporter & Engineering News, MarineNews and Marine Technology Reporter – as well as four other industry websites that penetrate every aspect of the maritime industry). If you are concerned with risk – financial, physical or operational – then Maritime Professional’s first edition is the one item you will be sure to want to take home from the CMA show

MarPro INTERVIEW: USCG Admiral Robert Papp

When Admiral Robert J. Papp assumed the duties of the 24th Commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard on May 25, 2010, he also served notice that it won’t be business as usual at headquarters. Papp, unlike his three immediate predecessors, apparently has no intention of setting the world on fire by instituting sweeping changes. Inside the Coast Guard, the proverbial round turn is probably good news. For maritime businesses that trudge along under the collective weight of mounting regulatory

Even as Lloyds Register predicts that LNG will reach a maximum 11% share of marine propulsion solutions in 2030, it also says that segments with higher proportion of small ships will see the highest LNG uptake

On June 4 2012, Deputy Maritime Administrator Paul “Chip” Jaenichen was named Acting Maritime Administrator.
