HELMEPA supports the Oceanos NTUA research program
On May 9th, HELMEPA’s Director General Dimitris C. Mitsatsos and scientific staff visited the Laboratory of Aerodynamic Naval Engineering of the School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), on the occasion of HELMEPAs sponsorship of the Oceanos NTUA research program. The aim of the project is to design energy efficient ship models to represent Greece at the worldwide competition “Hydrocontest” in September 2018, in France.
The Dean Professor and coordinator of the program, Grigoris Grigoropoulos, guided the visitors to the laboratory area and presented the achievements of his longstanding operation. The Oceanos NTUA students, who were at that time working on the 2 ship models, provided a detailed account of the structural features and the improvements made in their design to achieve the maximum efficiency of the ships.
The enthusiasm of these students and their attempt to promote NTUA’s research work fills us with optimism for the distinction of Greek scientists worldwide. We wish them every success at the contest!
