PIV setup was successfully tested with seawater at MARIN

In preparation of the JoRes project, MARIN recently concluded PIV tests with seawater in a basin. The aim was to test the functionality of the system in seawater with naturally present particles for seeding. The setup was sized to represent geometry and working distances as would be applied on the MV Regal within the JoRes project. Results were very encouraging: the naturally present particles deliver good quality seeding and the needed full-scale working distances are achieved. This is an important step towards the project’s ground-breaking full-scale wake field measurements.

Japan Marine United Corporation joins the JoRes project.

The Corporation‘s Hydrodynamics Design Group manager Dr Yasuhiko Inukai highlights: “As Japan Marine United Corporation is one of the leading companies in the shipbuilding industry, it is important and even critical to be innovative and agile especially in the subject of energy efficiency solutions. At the same time, it is essential to have an industry recognised and independently assessed benchmarks for these solutions. That is why we think it is very good timing and opportunity for the global industry to come together and contribute to the JoRes Joint Research Project.”
