Kick off meeting WINDLASS project

On 22 May 2019 the Joint Industry Project WINDLASS has started in Wageningen. The project runs for 3 years and will focus on the improvement of the existing knowledge on wind loads on (large) vessels by doing wind measurements in ports and developing software to calculate the wind loads.

The number of participants is about 20 and includes port and pilot authorities, shipping companies, ship builders and consultants. The project management is done by the Maritime Research Institute of The Netherlands MARIN. Mr. Wim Hoebee from the Port of Rotterdam Authority was elected as the Chairman of the Steering Group.

Svašek Hydraulics participates in the project for the evaluation of the monitoring and calculation results.
