2017 RINA – QinetiQ Maritime Innovation Award

The Maritime Innovation Award, which is presented in conjunction with QinetiQ to an individual or organisation,  recognises outstanding scientific or technological research in the areas of hydrodynamics, propulsion, structures and material, and which offers the potential to make significant improvements in the design, construction and operation of marine vessels and structures. The 2017 Award was presented to GustoMSC for their moonpool design.


The introduction of a moonpool in the hull of any vessel brings a number of challenges including increased resistance and sloshing effects,  The   Callirrhoe solution adopted by GustoMSC gave savings of 37% in resistance compared to other types of mitigation designs.  This solution will translate into significant fuel savings and reduced environmental emissions when in transit.    Read more
