On the 3rd of September 2018, the ACCU-WAVES project Kick-off Meeting took place at MarineTraffic in Athens Greece.
The aim of this project is to develop a tool that will provide reliable data on prevailing sea states in both real-time and 3-day forecasts every 3 hours. The results will support approaching procedures of vessels to port and harbor basins. The application will be based on hydrodynamic models and will derive data from open seas forecasts.
The project will build upon the cooperation of the three key Partners of the proposal:
- MarineTraffic is the coordinator of the project.
- N.T.U.A. participates as a collaborating partner (research institution) through the Laboratory of Harbor Works of the School of Civil Engineering.
- A.U.Th. participates as a collaborating partner (research institution) through the Laboratory of Maritime Engineering and Maritime Works of the Department of Civil Engineering.
The project is co‐financed by the European Union and Greek national funds through the Operational Program Competitiveness, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, under the call RESEARCH – CREATE – INNOVATE (project code:Τ1EDK-05111)
