Zero-Emission Research & Development in the Spotlight Zero Emission Lab under construction Here we focus on zero-emission Research & Development and several Joint Industry Projects addressing the topic. To reach zero-emission shipping a combination of measures are needed including energy efficiency measures such as hydrodynamic and operational improvements, use of renewable resources


PERFORMANCE PREDICTION METHOD BLUEROUTE FOR WIND-ASSISTED SHIPS ‘The climate benefits of wind-assisted ship propulsion have long been ignored’, says Patrick Hooijmans project manager of the WiSP2 project. The entire shipping industry is forced to deal with CO2 emission reduction, due to new rules and regulations (EEXI and CII) as from 2023. One way to do


JOIN OUR INNOVATION SEMINAR ON OCTOBER 5 Join our free Innovation Seminar on October 5 and discuss how MARIN can help accelerate the development of your floating innovation. We use our test facilities to do detailed research, but how can we create an environment for learning through experimentation? That is what this seminar is about.


WINDENERGY HAMBURG MARIN will be present at the WindEnergy Hamburg within the Dutch Village (the national pavilion of the Netherlands) organised by NWEA in Hall B7 (stand number tbd). Together with Deltares we will show the research we do for the offshore wind industry. For more information or to plan a meeting contact Erik-Jan de

‘MARITIME CRASH BARRIERS’ NOMINATED FOR MARITIME KVNR SHIPPING AWARD 'Maritime Crash Barriers' has been nominated for the Maritime KVNR Shipping Award! According to the jury, this hands-on innovation by MARIN and the offshore sector is: 'an initiative with which MARIN has proactively and positively stimulated the discussion about how to better safeguard safety in the North


RECOGNISE AND PREVENT PARAMETRIC ROLLING The size of deep sea container ships has increased dramatically over the past decades. The loss of containers and their impact on the marine and coastal environments raised public and politic concerns on the safety and environmental impact of modern container ships. Authorities and industry are urged to evaluate container


HYDRODYNAMIC RESPONSE OF A FOWT SEMI-SUBMERSIBLE UNDER REGULAR WAVES USING CFD - VERIFICATION AND VALIDATION Authors Wang, Y., Chen, H., Koop, A., Vaz, G. Conference/Journal Ocean Engineering Date Aug 15, 2022 Volume 258 DOI In this work an extensive verification and validation study is performed to evaluate the accuracy and credibility for CFD simulations of


A CORRECTION METHOD FOR SHALLOW-WATER EFFECTS ON SHIP SPEED TRIALS In July 2021, the 29th ITTC conference accepted a new procedure to correct ship speed trials results for the effect of shallow water, under the name ‘Raven shallow water correction’. Adoption of this procedure was proposed by the ITTC Specialist Committee on Operation of Ships
