SSPA can support with:

• CFD simulations for detail flow analysis and force predictions
• Model test in towing tank, sea keeping basin and cavitation tunnel
• CFD-EFD combined methods and cross check with model test database for increased accuracy in performance predictions
• Ship simulation and VPP for performance prediction
• Manoeuvring and sea keeping predictions
• Route analysis and prediction of total CO2 reduction potential
• Independent 3rd party evaluation
• Design of Wind Propulsion System and optimum position on vessel
• Risk assessment
• Logistic considerations

Ongoing projects include:
Wind Powered Car Carrier
