In 1997 MARIN was involved in the design of an open-hatch tug-barge system that would eventually operate along the Belgian coast and in the Rhine River. The work, which was performed on behalf of Hessenatie Consult, concerned information about the loads on the coupling system and design verification in terms of the sustained speed and inflow of water under adverse weather conditions.
