Start of ProNoVi research project
We are proud to announce the collaboration in the form of an EU funded research project called ProNoVi. The project partners are comprised of the research institute SINTEF Ocean, the university Hamburg University of Technology, the research institute CNR INM, the small/medium enterprise Helseth AS, the large scale enterprise SCHOTTEL GmbH and the large scale enterprise Fr. Lürssen Werft GmbH & Co. KG. The objective of the project is to improve the numerical and experimental methods for the prediction of noise and vibrations induced by a propeller operating behind ship hull in full scale conditions, and to elaborate practical recommendations for the reduction of noise and vibration levels for single and twin-screw vessels of different size and speed range.
ProNoVi is funded by the MarTERA partners Research Council of Norway (RCN), German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR) and co-funded by the European Union.
