Nominee Maritime Award – Abstract Volume Estimation Tool

Damen is proud sponsor of the Maritime Awards Gala. During this annual event, awards are given for innovative performance in the maritime sector. The naval shipbuilding sector is particularly noted as a frontrunner when it comes to innovative solutions for complex problems. When designing a submarine, achieving neutral buoyancy is one of the most important design requirements. To evaluate the buoyancy of a submarine design, a sound estimate of the weight and volume of a design is of great importance. Marijn Hage (Nevesbu) has developed the Volume Estimation Tool (VET) to quickly determine a suitable starting point for the main dimensions, volume and sub-volumes of a diesel-electric submarine in the early design phases. He has been nominated for the Maritime Designer Award 2017:
