General information
Backed by 75 years of model test experience and computational services, MARIN is offering full scale measurements and monitoring services on board ships and offshore platforms world-wide since 1990. Trials and Monitoring is a group of dedicated naval architects, structural engineers and experienced instrumentations engineers, who assist clients in supporting their operations at sea and resolving their problems.
MARIN T&M combines MARIN’s ship and offshore hydrodynamics with expertise in structural analysis and a wide experience in measurement technolgy. The combination of these three disciplines and the operational experience of our people on board ships and offshore platforms world wide contribute to each phase of a project; from proposal to instrumentation and data analysis.
We assist with sound analysis of measured data based on our knowledge of physics and mechanics. Our reports not only present the measured data, but also provide conclusions and recommendations.

Facilities & Tools
For the above services T&M operates a large variety of state-of-the-art equipment; most of it tailor made for this purpose. Our equipment is made for use on-board, calibrated and certified. We have special arrangments to ship our equipment overnight to any location in the world. Spare parts and hull fittings such as required for cavitation observations and dynamic pressure measurements are available from stock.

Our equipment comprises amongst others:

  • Shaft Power Measurement System (PMS)
  • Noise & Vibration Equipment
  • Cavitation observation (classic, high speed and boroscoop)
  • Wave radars and wave buoys
  • Wind meters
  • Current meters (ADCP, ADV & impeller type)
  • Flow measurements (LDV, PIV, pitot)
  • Accelerometers
  • Pressure sensors
  • Motions sensor units 6 d.o.f. (MQK)
  • GPS (D-GPS, Twin-GPS, RTK-GPS)
  • Loads cells (up to 180 tonf)
  • Long base strain gages
  • Linear Variable Differential Transformers (LVDTs)
Software Sales
Some software tools are available for commercial use outside MARIN. A complete overview of these software tools for sale can be found under Software Sales.
