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.
