Abstract
The "Wind Hybrid Coaster" was a sub project in MARITIM (2016) under the European INTERREG
Deutschland-Nederland programme within which Dutch and German partners from the maritime
industry and research institutions were developing a new type of “green” coastal ship equipped with
a wind assisted hybrid propulsion system. MARIN was asked to predict the performance of the Wind
Hybrid Coaster in a realistic operational scenario. For this purpose MARIN conducted a large
number of hydrodynamic model tests, powering predictions in calm water including wind assistance
and finally voyage simulations for multiple routes including voyage optimisation.
