2nd International Conference on Ship Manoeuvring in Shallow and Confined Water: May 18 - 20, 2011, Trondheim, Norway.
PhD and Post-doc in progress
Hiring of Ph D candidate and Post Doc
PhD. Yunja Yoo has been hired as a Post Doc student for a period of 18 months starting mid September 2008. She has a MSc degree from Korea Maritime University and a PhD from Kobe University in 2007. Yoo will make her Post Doc study related to WP 4 “Nautical aspects” activities.
Paper presentations in 2009
Dr Yunja Yoo was present at the TransNav-conference in Gdynia, Poland, in June and presented the paper "Application of 3-D Velocity Measurement of Vessel" by VI-GPS for STS Lightering authored by herself and with E. Pedersen, K. Tatsumi, N. Kouguchi, N., and Y. Arai as co-authors. It appears in the Proc. of the 8th International Symposium on Marine Navigation and Safety at Sea Transportation (TransNav 2009), Gdynia, Poland, 17 – 19 June 2009.
Abstracts to be submitted
Observation of lightering operation
Scientists from NTNU and Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology will visit Skaugen Petrotrans in Houston to observe a Gulf of Mexico lightering operation. The operation will be documented using Kongsberg Seatex position measuring equipment, video and data from the service vessel's Voyage Date Recorder
BW Gas, Rolls-Royce Marine and MARINTEK co-operate in an Arctic STS project
A consortium led by BW Gas will study ship-to-ship operations for LNG vessels in Arctic waters. Additional consortium partners are Framo Engineering and DNV. The R&D project started in February 2007 and is partly financed by The Research Council of Norway under the MAROFF programme. Russian companies are invited to take part in the project.

SMS and MARINTEK looks at emergency lightering in harsh weather
As part of the ongoing R&D project “Arctic Emergency Operations” SMS and MARINTEK will prepare new simulation models for open water, harsh weather lightering. It is expected that the new models will be implemented late 2007 at SMS. For more info on the AEO project click here
This workshop on verification and validation of ship manoeuvring simulation methods took place in Copenhagen April 14th – 16th 2008. For more info on SIMMAN 2008 click here
