Novel inland waterway transport concepts for moving freight effectively

Year: 2022

2nf of June 2022: Let’s meet in Duisburg!

On Thursday afternoon the 2nd of June, our team will be organizing the midterm conference at the Wyndham Hotel in Duisburg, starting with a 12.00h lunch. Here you can physically meet the project team members and discuss with us our achievements so far. A great occassion to engage with stakeholders! An update of the programme will be released in due time. You can expect us to brief you on exciting new vessel designs, mobile port terminal, cargo reconstructioning, smart naviagtion systems, dynamic lock planning and new transport models: innovative ideas[…]

Transport Modelling Stakeholder Workshop 25th of April 2022

The NOVIMOVE – smart & sustainable waterways project partners are looking forwards to discussing some recent research findings in the upcoming Transport Modelling Stakeholder Meeting on the 25th of April. To reach the target value of a 30% increase in waterborne freight transportation, six main ideas are being developed and tested. Next Monday, you can learn more about these ideas and provide them with your feedback. The meeting is of special interest to container operators, logistic service providers, and vessel operators. Registration is now open, please use the form below.

NOVIMOVE video update #2 – At the IAME conference in Rotterdam

Please enjoy our NOVIMOVE – smart & sustainable waterways second video update, shot at the recently held conference organised by the International Association of Martime Economists in Rotterdam. What does bringing science to industry look like in practice? Watch and see! Featuring Rudy Negenborn, Danitsja van Heusden – van Winden. Bilge Kรผรงรผk Atasoy, Frederik Schulte and Edwin van Hassel.

Moving through the water!

From paper to practice: Technical University of Delft’s Peter Poot is taking NOVIMOVE vessel concepts for adding buoyancy to inland vessels to the next level! Several concepts are currently researched with the aim to develop solutions for the inland waterway transportation sector to deal with reoccurring low water levels. Performing these simulating runs in the laboratory, the computer simulation software, developed at MARIN within this very same H2020 innovation project, can be adequately validated. ย  Results of the model scale test runs are to be expected soon. As we are[…]

An increasing number of innovations and policies are being developed to make freight transport more efficient, sustainable and adapted to the needs of society. These developments might have a noticeable influence on future activities of the European container transport sector. Researchers at Technische Universiteit Delft, working within the context of the NOVIMOVE – smart & sustainable waterways project, would like to open a dialogue with firms active in hinterland container transport in order to represent the needs of the sector better in these developments. In particular, the team is very[…]

Call for papers

NOVIMOVEs professor Edwin van Hassel, University of Antwerp and assistant professor Bilge Atasoy, TU Delft will be guest editors of the upcoming EEE OJ-ITS Special Issue on Innovations to improve the efficiency of inland waterway transport. Papers can be send until 30th of June 2022. In order to achieve successful intermodal transport operations, all forms of transport need to be coordinated so that transport capacity is utilized more effectively and the decisions are adapted to changing network conditions more easily. Inland waterway transport (IWT) represents a critical alternative in the[…]
