KNVTS panel discussion: Structural integrity of super yachts – Monitoring system & digital twinning


The Superyacht industry is constantly pushing the boundaries of yacht design to exceed the unique requirements of its customers. This spurs shipyards to deliver innovative new superyachts, but also brings major challenges to the structural integrity and cumulative fatigue of the vessels.

In this panel discussion, we will dive into these challenges. Using the SafePlan monitoring system, as installed by HMC on the 80-metre Super Yacht Genesis built by Heesen, the various aspects of this topic will be discussed by:

Jos Verbruggen – Manager Shipbuilding Engineering at Heesen Yachts
Sjoerd van Herk – Senior Naval Architect D&D at Heesen Yachts
Ton Bos – Director HMC
Ranko Petrovic – Senior Scientist Naval & Offshore Structures at TNO
Didi van Beek – Managing Director at DGC Risk Solutions
