Webinar MIIP project Novel and Minimized Emissions Shipping was a success



Novel and Minimized Emissions Shipping (NoMES) project is an MIIP project for studying and pinpointing the research potentialities and opportunities towards minimizing environmental footprint of the maritime sector. Withing NoMES, the focus is on the design and component selection for advanced power and propulsion systems, energy management and control for the future ships, as well as the interaction of these vessels with the infrastructure. The NoMES project takes a birds-eye view of the research landscape with the aim of identifying areas with unexplored potential.

On September 22, NoMES had its first workshop with its industrial partners. The workshop came in three parts. In the first part, the design and operation of the advanced power and propulsion systems were discussed where design and energy management were the focus points. In the next session, scalability of various energy systems, RAMS of novel energy systems, and incremental changes and retrofitting towards sustainability for inland shipping were discussed. Fault tree analysis for advanced power and propulsion systems using R was the topic of the final session. 

NoMES is an MIIP project supported by Nederland Maritiem Land (NML) and lead by TU Delft. The NoMES industrial partners are Damen Shipyards, Royal IHC, RH Marine, Nedstack, Marin, Defensie Materieel Organisatie (DMO), SmartPort and AMS Institute.
