The hull form, propeller, general arrangement, midship section
and scantling have been designed and optimized by HMD, using their own proprietary software Hull Form Optimizer of Mipo (HOM) and Propeller Optimizer of Mipo (POM).
An 85-ton midship section
was built and inserted, with work to split and extend the vessel finished in three days.
The Hull BUG autonomously groomed and removed biofilm from an area on the port midship section
of the hull in a preprogrammed pattern," he said.
We are enjoying the Norwegian Wind's first cruise since it was sawn in two to have a midship section
added, stretching it to more than 750ft and giving it a palatial and spacious feeling inside.
This map is divided into one meter square grids and shows that the bow and stern sections of the site have been excavated and that the midship section
remains to be completed.
