Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN)

The Maritime Research Institute Netherlands was founded in 1929 as the Netherlands Ship Model Basin (NSMB) by the Dutch government and industry. Work was started in 1932, following completion of the deep water towing tank. 

As Offshore technology experienced extensive growth, MARIN became involved in offshore projects since 1960. A Wave and Current Basin was built in 1973, it has been replaced by a complete new Offshore Basin in 2000.

As early as 1970, MARIN extended its activities to include nautical research and training. For this purpose a modern Vessel Traffic Simulator and two full-mission simulators are available today.

At present, approximately 350 people work at MARIN; together they are responsible for a turnover of € 42 million.
