Joint Workshop with SHIPLYS and LINCOLN Projects

On 31 May 2018 the HSVA led HOLISHIP project participated in a joint workshop with other EU funded ship design projects SHIPLYS and LINCOLN in Brussels. About 60 participants discussed with Commission representatives future trends of ship design and their answers to the evolving requirements. On the following day HOLISHIP held its first official Review…

HOLISHIP at TRA2018 Conference in Vienna

In April HOLISHIP participated in the 2018 TRA conference in Vienna presenting two posters and several oral presentations prepared by project partners. The first figure shows the official “Research Project Poster” prepared for the EU exhibition in the grand foyer of the exhibition centre. This was shown in line with other maritime projects. In addition,…

First Demonstrator: Software as a Service

Waterborne vessels are expensive to design, build, operate, and maintain. In particular, cargo ships are usually designed for very small production numbers- sometimes as one-off designs. One of the goals for the HOLISHIP project is to reduce costs for development and analysis of robust and efficient ship designs. Software as a Services (SaaS) is a…

Virtual demonstration and prototyping

By: Maarten Flikkema (MARIN) One of the core elements of HOLISHIP is the virtual vessel framework (VVF). This framework will connect different tools with varying complexity to each other thus enabling concurrent simulations of distinct ship systems and ultimately aims at the simulation of the complete ship system in one framework. This will give the…

the parallel bottom-up and top-down approach

The HOLISHIP project passed its first 6-months mark in March assembling the Steering Group for a meeting at project partner TRITEC Marine Ltd. premises in Glasgow to discuss next steps. While still being in the concept phase the approach for merging relevant tools covering different design disciplines (bottom-up) and the requirements stemming from the multitude…

HOLISHIP: Integration for better design

Started in September 2016, HOLISHIP is a research and development project of 40 European partners from the maritime industry, research institutes and universities.[1] Funded with a grant of 11.3 M€ by the Horizon 2020 Transport Research Programme of the European Union, the project aims at developing the next generation of flexible systems for the design…
