We find it very exciting to be involved in the developments in the maritime world and to play a significant role in shaping them.
In the following, we would like to provide you with some of our publications with opinions and reports on product topics and developments.
Product innovations often arise from enthusiasm and determination. At Hoppe, we consider ourselves very lucky to have employees who put their heart and soul into making shipping better.
In this white paper, Klas Reimer explains the challenges of meeting the upcoming Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) regulations with the subsequent annual Carbon Intensity Index (CII) reporting – and how important good data is for achieving these goals.
The B ZERO research project, funded by the BMWi, aims to develop an integrated and autonomous sensor, and documentation system for temporary unmanned bridge operation. Hoppe Bordmesstechnik GmbH, which is responsible in the project for determining the dynamic the project, has put its sensor system on the test ship „MOL Glide“ into operation for the most part largely through remote support.
HEXAPOD SERVICES – As an internationally renowned specialist in roll damping tanks, we design passive damping systems for a wide range of vessel types. By investing in new technologies, using a hexapod with six degrees of freedom (DOF) and a high-precision measuring system with minimal latency, the family-owned company is developing rolling damping tank concepts for the future.
„To validate a large number of ship operational and nautical measured values at a glance on shore so that optimisation can take place“ – This requirement has to be met after increasing data acquisition in recent years. Checking the high number of ship data available after shore transmission for validity and plausibility continues to be a major challenge for many shipping companies and operators. For a considerable part of the merchant fleet, systems for operational optimisation have already been purchased or are in planning, because an unclean data situation can significantly reduce existing optimisation potential and even lead to detrimental behaviour in ship operation.
