Together with Chalmers University Technology, SSPA announces two proposals of Master thesis projects. The current thesis projects that are available are “High-performance sailing: Fluid Structure Interaction of hydrofoils” and “CFD modelling of floating object’s motion decay”. The projects start in January 2021.
Oceanbird was recently presented and received worldwide attention. Together, Wallenius Marine, the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and SSPA contribute with considerable resources and expertise to create new knowledge and understandings of vessel design incorporating wind propulsion. The research project is called wPCC (wind Powered Car Carrier), and in September 2020 the collaboration presented the concept Oceanbird. Wallenius Marine, owns the concept and SSPA and KTH are research partners.
