How can transport on the Rhine between Rotterdam / Antwerp and Basel be improved? That is the central question in the Novimove research program: Novel inland waterway transport concepts for moving freight effectively. The European Commission has allocated nearly € 9 million to this four-year program from Horizon 2020, the Framework Program for Research and Innovation.

Millions of euros to improve to improve the Rhine-Alpine freight corridor

Container ships that aren’t fully loaded, congested locks resulting in long waits for vessels, suboptimal navigation of ships on rivers and fully loaded ships that cannot cope with low water levels. These are common problems on inland waterways. The Horizon 2020 programme ‘Novel inland waterway transport concepts for moving freight effectively’ (NOVIMOVE) is going to use a European grant of almost 9 million euros to conduct research on how to improve the logistics of this transport system.

TU Delft develops coach boat running on hydrogen

Going by the name H2 Coach Boat, TU Delft is joining a consortium consisting of maritime companies, the Sailing Innovation Centre and the Watersportverbond (Water Sports Federation) to develop a clean coach boat for the sport of sailing, with propulsion based on hydrogen in combination with electricity. The aim is to drastically reduce carbon emissions in the sport of sailing. Klaas Visser, researcher in Marine Engineering at TU Delft is leading the research team of maritime students who have completed a feasibility study, among other things, in cooperation with several companies from the marine sector and who are focusing on reducing boat emissions.

If only ships could talk

Worldwide demand for transport is increasing all the time. Although the port of Rotterdam is capable of handling the world’s largest container ships, processing the thousands of containers that they transport causes congestion on the water, roads and railways. But if ships and other transport systems exchange information with each other, the infrastructure can be used more efficiently and sustainably, argues Rudy Negenborn, Professor of Multi-Machine Operations & Logistics. He will give his inaugural address at TU Delft on 15 March 2019.
