A test in the towing tank can tell you something about how your vessel or offshore structure will behave in waves and current regarding the propulsive power, seakeeping performance, manoeuvring capabilities or dynamic positioning.
Critical situations at sea require good manoeuvring qualities, it is therefore of paramount importance that every vessel has optimum manoeuvring capabilities.
Onboard decision support system
A module-based solution for monitoring your vessel while under way.
Subsea structures are required to be overtrawlable if they are not marked with a buoy or vessel. An overtrawlability test will indicate the critical areas.
Many ships will have to cope with harsh weather influencing safety and comfort onboard the vessel. Passenger ships require good seakeeping characteristics to ensure the passengers’ comfort and avoid seasick passengers.
Still water tank tests and numerical calculations.
Still water tank test
A model-scale still water tank test is made to predict propulsive performance of a full-scale vessel.
Vortex Induced Vibrations or Motions
Vortex Induced Vibrations or Motions (VIV/VIM) are important issues for the oil & gas industry. Model tests play a significant role in the evaluation of VIV/VIM.
Facilities for hydrodynamic testing of ships and offshore structures.
Safe and efficient navigation
The improved hydrodynamic ship model will ensure precise simulation of manoeuvres.
Virtual hydro- and aerodynamic laboratory
New virtual laboratory is to ensure better design processes.
Digital twins – a step on the road to making shipping more green
Study of performance data and machine learning is going to improve training of captains.
New maritime simulator centre in Singapore
The Maritime Ship Simulator at PSA Marine is officially opened.
Extension of SimFlex4 simulator
