Introduction to this handbook

The NOVIMAR project aims at adjusting the waterborne transportation such that it can make optimal use of the existing short-sea, sea-river and inland waterways, thus expanding the entire waterborne transport chain up and into the urban environment.

The vessel train is foreseen as enabler for this transport system, providing opportunities for increased flexibility in cargo destinations, use of waterways and crew deployment.

NOVIMAR has a variety of research topics in scope ensuring a balanced evaluation of the foreseen transport system. In addition NOVIMAR will identify needed boundary conditions for the transport system and ongoing supporting developments in industry and other projects.
