THE 2021 RINA – QINETIQ MARITIME INNOVATION AWARD
The 2021 Maritime Innovation Award was presented to Dr. Noriyuki Sasaki, visiting Professor at Strathclyde University, for the Development of the Gate Rudder System which has demonstrated not only to improve the manoeuvring capabilities of the system but also achieve significant performance gains, 18% reduction in power, up to 30% fuel saving in normal operation as well a reduction of emitted noise.
Dr. Noriyuki Sasaki is indeed a worthy recipient of the RINA – QinetiQ Maritime Innovation Award.
