MARIN, Deltares and Bureau Veritas Group are starting the HAWA-III JIP (Shallow Water Initiative) which focuses on near shore terminals and their sensitivity to infragravity waves. The inclusion of infragravity waves in the terminal design is challenging and practical tools and guidelines will be delivered to cope with this. In addition the effectiveness of breakwaters and innovative mooring solutions will be investigated. Validation will be accomplished by means of model tests and full scale measurements.


Seven companies already confirmed participation, and we are still open for extra participants. Interested to join? Contact Frédérick Jaouën or visit
