Russian-Chinese video conference on the project

Russian was represented by: Kirill Rozhdestvensky, Director of the International Cooperation Department, SMTU, Oleg Timofeev, Dean of Shipbuilding and Ocean Engineering Faculty, Vladimir Ryzhov, Head of Applied Maths and Modeling Department, Alexander Rodionov, Head of Ship Mechanics Department, Vladimir Tryaskin, Head of Ship Design Department, Vadim Goncharov, researcher of Ocean Engineering and Marine technologies Department, Kirill Ovchinnikov, research fellow of Ship Mechanics Department,  Roman Mudrik, Zin Min Htet, PhDs of Applied Maths and Modeling Department, Vladimir Klimov, Head of SMTU Project Office, Dmitry Kisilev, Project Office Coordinator, Tatyana Pustynnikova, Head of International Projects Department, Maria Pak, Head of International Science and Educational Programms.

Chinese Party was represented by Yan Zhujian, Rector's assistant of HEU, Chen Hailong, head of the management committee of HEU Research Institute in Yantai, Liu Yanlei, deputy head of the management committee of HEU Research Institute in Yantai, HEU professors: Geng Jing (research team leader), Xu Guodong, Li Minwei, Gao Tianming, Xue Wei, associate professors Zhao Xuanle and Lu of CIMC RAFFLES Shipbuilding Co.

The program of the videoconference included: presentation of the project "Ships propelled by wave energy" (Professor Kirill Rozhdestvensky), presentation of the status of the subject research by Chinese research groups (Professor Geng Jing), discussion of scientific and technical cooperation.

The initiator of the project "Ships propelled by Wave Energy" Professor Kirill Rozhdestvensky noted in his report the relevance of the topics of joint research on the reduction of marine pollution, in particular through the use of ships equipped with energy-efficient wings to reduce rocking, fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.

The project under discussion contains proposals:

To develop and parametrically analyze mathematical models of vessels with wings and mechanisms for efficiently converting renewable wave energy into forward motion;
Carrying out of model tests of ships with wings;
design of energy-saving retractable wing modules for increasing design energy efficiency of new ships and modernization of existing commercial fleet ships.
Speakers from the Chinese side noted that the proposed project is of practical interest and will only benefit from an integrated approach that includes scientific research, lectures on the use of renewable ocean energy, and training of masters and graduate students in this field.

During the videoconference, the possibility of upgrading a Chinese ship of about 1,000 tons displacement by installing an energy-efficient wing module on it was mentioned to assess the prospects of reducing pitching, fuel consumption and harmful emissions.

The Yantai Research Institute and Harbin Engineering University's (HEU) School of Master's and Graduate Studies officially opened on September 11, 2020 in the Central Innovation Zone in the Baijiao Bay area, introducing eight key research platforms focused on research and development for the maritime industry.

Through its research institute, HEU has established ties with 46 organizations in Yantai City District and signed cooperation agreements with 18 leading enterprises that have agreed to participate in training high-level engineers for smart manufacturing in the maritime industry.

Note that in May 2019, SPbGMTU signed two agreements with HEU:

On the creation of a joint laboratory of polar equipment;
On possible directions of work of the said laboratory.
The topics of the advance projects under the guidance of leading professors of St. Petersburg State Maritime Technical University are currently being discussed.
