Novel inland waterway transport concepts for moving freight effectively

News

Midterm conference in Duisburg

On the 2nd of June the midterm conference took place in Duisburg. It was a special occassion since it was the first time project partners and external stakeholders were able to meet eachother in-persons after two years of remote, online collaboration. The agenda as well as all presentations, including a photo impression can be found at the dedicated midterm section of the project website.

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.

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[…]

Going East

On the 7th of December the NOVIMOVE project was introduced by Erwin van der Linden at the 2nd Workshop on container liner services organised by the Dionysus project – integrating the Danube Region into Smart & Sustainable Multi-modal & Intermodal Transport Chains. The Dionysus project focuses on addressing main regional challenges in infrastructure governance and planning highlighting key actions needed to support Danube transport, port infrastructure planning. Project results will feed into the elaboration of transport corridor development policies by means of gap analysis reports and recommendations. The December workshop[…]

NOVIMOVE at IAME conference

NOVIMOVEs Danitsja van Heusden- van Winden conducted a series of interviews today at the IAME 2021 conference on Maritime Economics in Rotterdam. She will be collecting good stories on academic dissemination on the topic of Inland Waterways Transportation, more specifically on improving the performance on the Rhine-Alpine corridor, in front of the appropriate scenary of the iconic Erasmus bridge. Contribution to the conference are made by prof. dr. Rudy Negenborn, Bilge Kucuk Atasoy, prof. Edwin van Hassel and Frederik Schulte.

Rudy Negenborn appointed member of Advisory Board PLATINA3

Prof. dr. Rudy Negenborn, scientific project coordinator of H2020 funded IWT innovation project NOVIMOVE, is appointed member of the Advisory Board of PLATINA3, the European policy platform for Inland Waterway Transportation. The EU-funded PLATINA3 project will provide for targeted coordination and support activities to promote inland waterway transport (IWT) in Europe. Started from January 2021, the project will run for 30 months. In this period the project will make the bridge towards future research, innovation and implementation needs within IWT in Europe. The main objective of PLATINA3 is to provide[…]
