H2020: LINCOLN presents three new concepts of added-value specialized vessels able to run requested services for several maritime sectors in the most effective, efficient, economic valuable and eco-friendly way. LINCOLN will develop three types of completely new vessels concepts at TRL5, through dynamic simulation model testing. All the three vessels will share the same design methodology. In fact, LINCOLN will be also a success story for the use of innovative design methodologies and tools in the marine sector. It will use: a lean fact based design model approach, which combines real operative data at sea with lean methodology, to support the development and implementation of the vessel concepts; IT customized tools to enable the acquisition and usage of field data, coming from an IoT platform; High Performance Computing Simulation. This new design approach will be demonstrated with the three vessels designed and delivered in the project and disseminated to bring back EU yards to the edge of innovation.
