Displacement Hull Analysis

Maine Marine Composites has extensive experience conducting traditional seakeeping analyses of displacement hulls, including effects from forward speed, complex mooring configurations and drift forces.

Looking to transport heavy equipment?  MMC uses oceanographic data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to analyze worst-case scenarios one might expect during transit.  Such studies are frequently conducted prior to moving expensive industrial equipment via ocean-going power barge, and the results are pivotal in trip planning and damage avoidance.
