life at sea

The sea is increasingly being regarded as a location for energy generation, food production and possible living at sea. MARIN uses high-quality hydrodynamic research to support the development of floating airports, ports, energy islands and fish and seaweed farming.

Open innovation

Through open innovation sessions we do research to support, for instance, multi-use concept development for seaweed farming and application of floating solar panels around wind turbines.

HYDRODYNAMIC SERVICES TO SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR FISH FARM

Currently developments are ongoing with the goal to operate fish farms further offshore in less sheltered locations. Consequently the fish farms will be subjected to more extreme conditions. To ensure structural integrity of the farm and safe operations at the site it is important that the effect of these extreme conditions is accurately taken into account. MARIN has a long track record on the assessment of environmental loading on a variety of offshore structures in the Oil & Gas and offshore wind industry. Therefore we are in the position to offer services and advice on the hydrodynamic design and the operations of your offshore fish farm in exposed environments. Through state-of-the-art numerical models and model test campaigns the loading and response of your farm can be determined. These assessments will provide you adequate input to understand hydrodynamic and structural viability of your design.

HYDRODYNAMIC SERVICES TO SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR SEAWEED FARM

Seaweed farms are currently placed near shore in sheltered locations. However, a strong desire exists to expand towards offshore locations for the sake of large scale seaweed cultivation. New innovative seaweed cultivation designs that can withstand the offshore conditions are currently being developed. MARIN has a long track record on (extreme) environmental loading on a variety of offshore structures serving the Oil & Gas, offshore wind and aquaculture industry. Therefore we are in the position to offer services and advice on loading on your offshore seaweed farm in exposed environments. Through state-of-the-art numerical models and model test campaigns the loading and response of your farm can be determined.

PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS FOR FISH FARM SUPPORT VESSELS

The operational performance of fish farm support vessels (e.g. CTV’s or work boats) depends on the seakeeping characteristics of the vessel and the resulting wellbeing of the crew on-board. MARIN can determine this operational performance for your dedicated vessel with in-house developed state-of-the-art hydrodynamic software. The results will be delivered to you in combination with one of MARIN’s dedicated visualisation tools. OperabilityViewer or PerformancePlotViewer will assist you in the determination of the operability of your vessel through easy-to-use and interactive plots.

CFD analysis and model tests of fish cage. CFD is tuned to model tests to determine impact loads on the structure and the flow inside the net.
Lumped-mass model (aNySIM-xmf) of flexible fish net. The lumped-mass model calculates the deformations of the fish net under the influence of hydrodynamic loads.
