Better ships, Blue oceans

MARIN will show how to make ships cleaner, smarter and safer. Experience a future of autonomous shipping, floating islands and sustainable offshore energy.

Software Seminar, October 11, Wageningen

The Software Seminar brings developers and users together to share experiences and define future requirements. If you have used MARIN’s software or are considering using it, we would like to meet you and we welcome your feedback and input.

There will be sessions on Hydrodynamic ship design, Offshore engineering and Simulation and training.

Presentations will be given by MARIN experts and guest speakers. Interested? Visit for information and registration. Participation is free of charge.

Horizon 2020 project Space@Sea well on its way

With 16 European partners MARIN is aiming to develop and demonstrate a concept for floating islands in the project Space@Sea. The main objective is to provide flexible and affordable deck space at sea for a large variety of applications.

A floating solution was chosen because of the low environmental impact and the high level of flexibility. A modular approach has been adopted by the partners because this makes it easy to add or remove parts of the island.

Key tasks include designing the shape of the floaters, and the structural design, mooring and interconnections of the floaters. Applications for the floating islands such as living, transhipment/port facilities, offshore renewable energy servicing and aquaculture will be demonstrated at the model testing facilities of MARIN.

Space@Sea is a three-year project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme. The first results

are just becoming available but the project aims to complete late 2020.
