Whenever a new harbour, navigation channel or jetty is being planned or constructed, MTC is the right partner to conduct studies and and evaluate the best design using the ship handling simulator. Extensive software tools are available to create to create new data bases and models. The visual model of the new harbour is generated as well as the ECDIS to provide the best environment for the test manoeuvres with different ships models under all weather conditions, tides and current. The R&D projects can be conducted under the full responsibility of MTC with own project management or together with partners.We also rent out the simulator together with operating personnel to external contractors. Consultancy for pilotage is available through our partners.

For further questions regarding research and development projects please contact Heinz Kuhlmann or Andreas Hartmann.
