We can arrange for towing tests at the facility of the DST, Development Center for Ship Technology and Transport Systems in Duisburg. Tank towing tests are nessasary for the prediction of the hydrodynamic performance of a boat, ship or marine installation, the safety and environmental impact, using the results of physical model tests, numerical modelling and full-scale measurements.
