MARIN has recently expanded its facilities with a hexapod. This system can be used to generate forced oscillations in six degrees of freedom, either on a standalone basis or under the carriage of one of our basins. It is a useful tool to assess the efficiency of anti-roll tanks, sloshing in LNG tanks, safety of cruise ship swimming pools or drop tests with a free-fall lifeboat from a moving platform.
