Towing tank

Next door to Ostend Science Park, at the Flanders Maritime Laboratory, the fully automated carriage of the shallow water towing tank (175m x 20m x 1m) will test ship models up to 8 meters long (both captive and free running). These tests will help to understand the maneuvering behavior of ships in shallow and confined water.
