The Wageningen F-series Propellers

In this new Joint Industry Project a standard series of fixed-pitch propellers will be developed which encompasses design features of contemporary propellers. The new series will be designed for best achievable efficiency, while simultaneously taking into account requirements on cavitation, noise and vibrations. The need for the series results from the growing awareness of safety, ecological and comfort aspects in ship design, and the increasing electrification of ship propulsion systems. The project will take three years to complete. For more information contact Jie Dang,

Award of Excellence

On October 23, MARIN and Dillon Consulting received the ‘Award of Excellence’ from the Association of Consulting Engineers for Canada for the Area Risk Assessment (ARA) project. MARIN’s Jos van Doorn, together with Dillon’s Dave Creber and Lynn Gagnon were present at the annual dinner party in order to accept the award.

In 2015 and 2016 MARIN executed a study to determine the Frequency of Oil Spills in four areas in Canadian Waters. Transport Canada required a method to assess the risk of ship-source oil spills. Dillon Consulting led the development of an ARA Methodology that determines the probable locations and volumes of ship-source oil spills.

Within this ARA Methodology the MARIN SAMSON model was used. SAMSON is the acronym for Safety Assessment Model for Shipping and Offshore on the North Sea. Despite its name, SAMSON is a generic model which can be used for any geographic location.
