Seminar May 18, 2018 Join the SSSRI-MARIN Seminar in Shanghai where experts from SSSRI, MARIN and the industry will discuss the latest developments in hydrodynamic research. For more details keep an eye on

During the adjacent days (15-17 May) the MARIN Ships’ Hydrodynamics Course will also be organised in Shanghai (see news flash below). You are more than welcome to combine both events!

Participants in latest FPSO Research Forum exchange experiences and discuss future developments

Last October the FPSO community came together again. This time in historic downtown Galveston to discuss the future of monitoring, operations and integrity management. More than 100 representatives from oil operators, design companies and class societies gathered to discuss their experiences with FPSOs after delivery.

Offshore hydrodynamics &

MARIN kicked off the event with a presentation on the need to bridge the gap between design and operations. The audience were shown examples how to close the loop from design to concept and operation. In today’s connected world, more and more data is being gathered on FPSOs. To make sense of the full-scale data, the Monitas Joint Industry Project has developed a methodology whereby the data is being fed back into design models for fatigue loading to estimate the remaining fatigue life.

Ship design courses Wageningen & Shanghai

Are you an engineer wanting to specialise in the hydrodynamics of floating offshore structures, or a naval architect looking for ways to expand your knowledge of hydrodynamics in ship design? Then join our courses in Wageningen or Shanghai.

During these hands-on training courses we share our expertise and experience developed within our commercial projects, in Joint Industry Projects and in worldwide cooperation networks.

Hydrodynamics of floating offshore structures March 12-16, 2018

Total presented its experience with mooring monitoring and concluded that more reliable instrumentation is needed. Total also said that it would like to design the monitoring equipment for a possible future replacement.

Five new research projects were introduced and discussed to collect feedback and support. When these projects start, they will join other Joint Industry Projects on hydro, hull and mooring strength in the FPSO JIP Week.

Next April, the JIP Week will be hosted by EM&I in the UK. You are welcome to register for this event at
