Although shipping is one of the safest modes of transport, accidents unfortunately do happen. As an independent institute, MARIN works together with governments, classification agencies, shipping- and other maritime companies to make maritime operations safer.

Products & Services

traffic studies

How many ships pass the Dutch coast each day? What is their size and speed? How much CO2 do they emit? Typical questions of the government when making decisions regarding the spatial planning of the North Sea or other infrastructural changes. MARIN can give the answers by analysing AIS data. A good example is our network evaluation, an AIS analysis executed for Rijkswaterstaat every two years. The traffic analysis forms the basis for the further risk assessment and safety studies model.

risk assessments

The Dutch government is developing a large number of wind farms on the North Sea. What are the consequences of these developments on the safety of shipping? To answer this question we follow the Formal Safety Assessment (FSA) methodology. This is a rational and systematic process for assessing risks and to evaluate mitigating measures.

ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION

Maritime accidents often have a huge impact on society. They can result in loss of life or serious damage to the environment. A dramatic example is the capsizing of the South Korean ferry Sewol where 304 students lost their lives. MARIN has the capabilities to reconstruct accidents like this through simulations and/or model tests.

Vessel Traffic Services and Ship control centres

Logistics and transportation are more and more data driven. Shipping is an important link in the logistic chain. In inland waterway transport the traditional Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) will disappear and will be replaced by Vessel Traffic Management (VTM). With regard to autonomous shipping, vessels plan their route automatically and take deviating measures to avoid collisions. Operators in a Shore Control Centre (SCC) monitor the vessel and can intervene in case of an emergency. What is the impact of these developments on future VTS/VTM or on SCC? In our simulator facilities we study these developments and optimise the situational awareness of operators on shore.

SHIP DESIGN RULES AND REGULATIONS

Ships have to fulfil manoeuvring requirements posed by either owners, local governments, classification societies, the IMO or the NATO. We have the perfect facilities and experience to verify whether these requirements are fulfilled.
