General information
MARIN's commercially available software is provided by the Maritime Simulation & Software Group (MSG).

Besides model basins, software is one of MARIN's important facilities & tools providing services for the maritime, offshore and nautical industry. Knowledge and experience developed during our research and development is assimilating into software that is used on a day-to-day basis. Our tools are continuously validated with model test results and full-scale data. Moreover, new software is developed as a convenient way to secure project results for many of our present (research) projects, such as the Joint Industry Projects MARIN participates in.

Due to project confidentiality, high-tech nature of some products combined with support limitations and strategic considerations, we have limits to the software packages that can be purchased. If you have interest in MARIN software not presented below, please contact us to discuss how we can assist you in alternative ways. Furthermore, contacting us will show market demand for future considerations.

Our aim is to provide as much solutions within the constraints above. Therefore, we have tagged our software to the following models, enables you to identify restrictions and requirement related to availability, conditions, training and support:

  1. Boxed:
    Software that can be bought without any restrictions other than mentioned on our Support page
  2. Project (Pro):
    Software offered on a project basis. MARIN prepares/configures a project specific software solution based on pro software, which can be used by the client for their hydrodynamic studies in their current projects. This is especially relevant for advanced simulation tools
  3. Expert:
    Software that can be bought but will always be accompanied with mandatory expert training and support restrictions as mentioned for expert support on our Support page
  4. JIP:
    Software developed as part of a Joint Industry Project (JIP). Purchase might be possible but will depend on agreements within the specific JIP
