Our team lead by Deltamarin in Finland have been very busy over the past few month working to finalise plans for the ship to begin construction. Working with German hydrodynamic service and consulting company Hamburg Ship Model Basin (HSVA) we have conducted the first model testing of the proposed Titanic II.
The 9.3m wooden model of Titanic II has be put through resistance and powering tests in a 300m long tank at HSVA's Hamburg facilities in mid-September. The model testing by HSVA is an important stage in the Titanic II project, with the model being tested at speeds of between 18 and 24 knots. This testing is crucial for assessing the speed and power performance of this prototype vessel design. We are extremely excited about finalising this testing and means we can move on with finalising our construction contract.
Baljeet Singh, our World Project Director spent time with Deltamarin and HSVA for the testing in Germany and said that it was an amazing experience to see the project progressing in-line with our expected deadlines. Our team have worked very hard to get to this milestone for the Titanic II project and we were the 5000th model test for HSVA and it was great to be a part of such a milestone for their company too.
