169m Container Vessel Rijnborg


Scope of case study

CFD, model testing
Maximum speed: 21 knots
Resistance reduction:

  • 10.1% at 17.0 knots
  • 15.5% at 21.0 knots

Interesting fact

The Rijnborg was model tested in different regular wave systems, with and without Hull Vane®. All tests in regular waves showed a reduction of the pitch motion, on average by 11.4%. Model tests in ice were done at Arctech Helsinki. Part of this research was presented at the RINA Ferries & RoPax Conference in London, 2016. The paper is available for download here.
