Development of an Anti-Seasickness Bed for use in vessels

In the long history of ship design and construction, primary attention has been paid to ship stability.  Additionally, sailing a ship in rough seas and high waves can cause seasickness of passengers and crew. A special attention for passenger comfort applies to beds in ship's sleeping cabins.
MATIS business system in its rich product range, produces a wide range of furniture.  Existing products can be classic equipment for furnishing interiors in ship spaces (ship sleeping cabins, kitchens, dining rooms, restaurants).  
In addition to the existing offer, and in accordance with the SHIPmEnTT project objectives, MATIS works on development an innovative idea of designing a boat bed to prevent seasickness.  The bed needs to be easy for manufacturing and installation.
Also, the Anti-Seasickness Bed should be reliable and designed within the required limits (maximum angles of rotation and inclination in the expected load interval or mass of the passenger sleeping on this bed).  This includes, among others, calculations and analyzes based on oscillation theory, gyroscope theory, finite element methods (FE-Finite Elements), etc.  This bed system is expected to improve comfort for crew and passengers.

Thermal energy accumulator integrated in the solar panel

Obtaining energy from renewable sources and storing it for later consumption is an imperative of both the present and the future.  One of the most common forms of energy that people use is thermal energy.  The development of technology so far has enabled this type of energy to be produced in a large number of ways, but it has not given a definite answer as to how to save the produced energy for later consumption. In response to this problem, a number of technical solutions have been developed in the form of heat accumulators, but all these solutions suffer from technical or economic problems. 
The idea of this paper is the integration of a special type of heat accumulator in a solar collector, which enables a simple, cheap and dimensionally acceptable system of production and distribution of thermal energy in the coming hours when such energy is needed.  The distribution of thermal energy would be done through the air. The material used for energy accumulation is selected from materials that have the characteristic of a phase transition (phase-changing matter, i. e.  PCM substances) and whose main characteristic is a large heat capacity while maintaining a constant operating temperature.  This allows this system to be used even in relatively unfavourable weather conditions because it is able to store energy even at surface temperatures of the solar panel of 40◦C, which is easily achievable even in the winter months (especially in in coastal areas).    These characteristics and the relative simplicity of construction make this system suitable for supplementing existing heating systems due to serious and environmentally friendly savings in heating costs.

This product is device for pouring, preservation and distribution of bottled beverages, primarily used for pouring wine per glass. The innovation of this invention is reflected in the structural connection between its elements, wherein the subsystem for inert gas dosing is pre-programmed in a way that ensures that corresponding valves are open for as long as necessary, and during this time an amount of inert gas proportional to the programmed time is released into the bottle. The advantage of this invention compared to state-of-the-art devices is reflected by the following: the cork and bottle containing the wine can be detached from other device sub-assemblies; remaining wine in the bottle is kept in the inert gas shielding atmosphere up to a month, without losing wine quality.  The invention is related to a Detachable precious liquids dispenser system wherein an electromagnetic valve is connected to tank via pipeline. One end of tube is introduced into the upper part of the bottle, whereas one end of tube is introduced into bottle and reaches its bottom, thus the precious liquid is dispensed into a glass through tubes

Protection of work and living space from electromagnetic radiation

Modern IoT sensors, advances in communication and Wi-Fi technology (4G and 5G base stations, routers, smart devices, ...) and other modern equipment are driving the increase in artificial Electromagnetic pollution. There is no doubt that continuous exposure to very high levels of electromagnetic fields can be harmful to human health. Due to the negative cumulative effects of EM radiation and the growing number of artificial EM sources, it is necessary to devise economically acceptable concepts of EM radiation protection and prevention. This protection is especially important for work and living spaces (study rooms, office space, bedrooms…) in which a person resides for a long time.
In accordance with the above, the proposed idea includes the development of concepts, devices and materials that enable the absorption and reflection of a large portion of EM radiation (electromagnetic screens, protective coatings - metallic paints, special construction boards…) thus protecting work and rest space. The development and commercialization of this idea has great market potential and is an imperative in the time to come.

SEALIFE system for aquaculture net washing - Innovative system that integrates net cleaning for aquaculture with shelves preservation system

The aim of the project is to check the technical feasibility of an automatic system that simultaneously cleans marine fish nets and collects live shells.
The idea is to construct prototype of a specially designed system for automatic machine washing of nets in fish farms, which, instead of destroying all the pests on the nets (mostly spawn of various types of shells such as mussels and oysters), would be able to effectively wash the net and at the same time preserve live young shells, separate and conveniently store them so that they can be transported alive to shell farms and used there for further commercial production to the required commercial size.
The prototype would be designed as a system, consisting of a barge with shell containers and a specially designed automatic washing machine.
The expected results of the project are:
- Demonstration of the technical feasibility of a system that simultaneously cleans the net and collects live shells
- Increasing the availability of young spawn
- Resolve the problem of disposal of the ""waste"" from cleaning the nets
- Increase in shell production
- Increase in fish growth in fish farms

Smart solutions in controlling the water supply system, reducing losses and improving service to citizens

The main indicator of operational efficiency is the level of water lost or losses, which can be caused by a number of factors, including water losses through leaks and burst pipes (physical losses), faulty flow meters, flow measurement, illegal connections. Well-managed systems in Western Europe are governed by the use of an economic loss level that is generally below 20%. The average lost water for the Municipality of Laktaš is 45%. Losses of about 50% represent systems that are highly inefficient.Smart equipment “as a technology for efficient monitoring of water supply networks and reducing the loss of drinking water will enable efficient management of water supply. New products and technologies will provide innovative solutions such as remote leak detection to reduce leakage time and improve efficiency. This equipment will use the Internet (delivering cloud-based data) to access network pressure and flows, water use, nighttime flows, leak detection and leak location.Based on the analysis of the water supply system, the company managing the water supply system concluded that water supply control should be improved by purchasing the following equipment:-3 ultrasonic flowmeter-20 loggers for remote leak detection-3 data loggers-10 ultrasonic water metersThe equipment purchased would allow the collection and analysis of data from the entire system and would allow the user to have control over the system at all times and to react as soon as possible in the event of a system failure.The purchase of this equipment would lead to reduced losses in the water supply system, more satisfied users and energy savings.

Construction of a photovoltaic power plant to produce electricity that will meet the needs of the Maglajani drinking water source -solar energy to the drinking water

Drinking water source Maglajani is one of two springs in the water supply system of Laktaši Municipality. Sources Maglajani consists of four wells with four 55 l / s pumps for drinking water production. Powertrains for pumps are electric motors, and it follows that electricity is the propulsion energy for pumps at the Maglajani source.The required amount of electricity for the operation of pumping stations at Maglajani source is 220000kWh per year.According to the calculations, the needs of the Maglajani source for electricity should be met by a solar power plant with 600 solar module and power of 160kW.A solar power plant of 600 modules facing south covers an area of approximately 1000 m².Photovoltaic modules are mounted on the grass surface. The modules will be mounted on a system of supports that are mounted on the foundations. The carrier system is resistant to all weather conditions because it is made of stainless steel and aluminum.An integral part of the solar power plant is the control system. The system of control, diagnostics, data storage, visualization constantly collects and disseminates all necessary values. This provides the user with all the information they need about the system at all times.Based on the given parameters, it can be calculated that a solar power plant of 600 modules and a power of 160 kWh will produce an expected electricity of approximately 220000 kWh in a year.The installation of a solar power plant makes the Maglajani source a self-sustaining system in energy terms. As an environmental technology, it is expected that after the installation of a 160kV solar power plant, CO₂ emissions will be reduced by about 70 tonnes per year.

Capacity building for Blue Growth and curriculum development of Marine Fishery in Albania

The development of a new professional Master Degree in Marine Fishery that will meet market needs
Curriculum will provide students with theoretical knowledge and practical skills that are required by the labour market needs in that segment, which will have a positive impact on employability of students and matching of the demand for and supply of qualified labour in the Blue Growth sector. Furthermore, the new curriculum will offer more practice oriented opportunities than some previous study programmes, which will have a positive impact on the university-enterprise cooperation, opening door to new research opportunities and in general the exchange of knowledge and information among industry stakeholders and the academics. In long run, this can increase Albania’s competitiveness in marine fishery industry and internationalization of its products and know-how.
2. Enhancement of collaboration among Blue Growth stakeholders through the development of networking platform
The creation of the networking platform which will unite all stakeholders active in marine fishery field, from education institutions, graduated students, private business and organizations, will further contribute to that since it will provide the stakeholders with opportunities for new partnerships, the exchange know-how, the access to most actual market information, trends, qualified staff and/or employment opportunities.
3. Improvement of maritime training centres which provide professional training to seafarers operating on fishing vessels.
Improving the maritime training centre for professional seafarers operating on fishing vessels is another objective of the project since it allows us to penetrate and shape the marine fishery industry from another angle which is the field of exploitation and fishing. The current state of the training centres are not in accordance with IMO standards and EU legislation, for which reason currently trained seafarers do not own competences and skills which are recognized internationally and/or satisfy safety needs, environmental concerns or overall maritime security standards. Developing new basic and advanced courses for seafarers that are in accordance with IMO standards would have positive impact on environment protection, improving fishing and exploitation efficiency and international collaboration opportunities.

Multidisciplinary approach and solutions to development of intermodal transport in region

The European Commission has launched a Freight Transport Logistic Action Plan that is proposing a series of measures to promote the freight transport logistics, make intermodal transportation more competitive, create a framework which will allow European ports to attract investment for their modernization, put maritime freight transport on an equal footing with other transport modes and review progress made in development of sustainable mobility. Based on that plan, project MultiAPPRO combines different approaches to reach most of the goals highlighted by the EC. Therefore, overall objective of the project is development of intermodal transport in Adriatic-Ionian region. The first approach is focused on systematic collection and providing solutions to all bottlenecks, both on national or regional level. Since White Paper of EC identifies promotion as one of the priority activities in transport development, the next approach innovatively and systematically performs promotion of the intermodal transport in the region and also creates a network of promotional centers. Furthermore, to assure high quality service, project will design specific port quality measures indicators. Investments in the transport infrastructure require exceptional financial means. These are capital projects, in which cost rationalization is the key for the future competitiveness of that direction. MultiAPPRO project will thus create a model that will be able to measure the effect of each new investment, in relation to the existing situation, in a simple and logical way. Hence, it will be possible to bring objective and rational decisions about future investments in intermodal infrastructure, in the area of the entire Adriatic-Ionian region. Given the above, project outputs include development of two supported transnational cooperation networks: 1) Intermodal Transport Network and 2) Promotion network as well as a SSS and MoS promotion action plan and a Transport Performance Strategy. Intermodal Transport Network will be composed of partner representatives, national authorities and experts working on activities to improve regional intermodal transport while Promotion network will encourage establishment of new Promotion Centres into coordinated work of already existing Centres within European Shortsea Network. Furthermore, SSS and MoS promotion action plan will serve as a strategic document for performing common promotion campaign and finally, Transport Performance Strategy will enable actors to define the effect of any investment by defining the strategy and action plan for future investments in the region.

The company has developed a speedboat that is entirely made of composite material, adorned with exclusive finishing and completely decorated. A highly technological evolution of the hydrofoil. The wings allow the boat to rise from the water, reducing consumption by approximately 40% (because there is no longer most of water resistance), with excellent performance (as that the speed exceeds 50 knots). Equally impressive is the reduction of the effect of wave motion by 50%, up to a certain level of rough sea. At the heart of this intelligent navigation, there is an innovative control system. The computerized system analyses the state of the water surface through sensors and modifies in real-time the trim of the four wings, on which the boat glides on the surface of the sea. The pillars of the innovation are high-performance materials, designed and assembled innovatively; a network of sensors, customized for the specific task; a software able to adjust the trim of the boat during the navigation, 1000 times per second. The advanced system based on foils that can be electronically controlled and moved in real-time is unique. The foils (i.e., retractable and hydro-dynamic appendices) protrude below the hull and allow the SF15 to lift up from the water’s surface and sail for a certain distance, ignoring the waves thanks to its compensation system: the angle and length of the foils will be modified every thousandth of a second by an automatic control system.

The company is also active in R&D new materials and technologies for innovative product which can find suitable applications also in marine furnishing  and in the shipbuilding sector. In particular, the company is interested in developing a very light new panel/furniture component which would reduce manufacturing and transportation costs. The project aims at creating new innovative products for the full exploitation of plastic material features.  Finishing panels of variable dimensions are edged or solidified with PVC/HPL/Acrylic and XPS foam shaped in folding and solidified with weather-resistant films and water repellent material inside the panel. The panel structure and its installation allow for air passage and avoid extreme stress by the wind. The junctions between the panels are made of special metal alloy elements, whch are mostly hidden by the panels themselves. These elements also allow for the panel to be resilient  during climate change (expansion etc...). Possible applications of these panels are in internal and external furniture onboard, swimming pool coverings etc.

Development of use of composite materials in marinas

M.M. has been dealing in the FRP ( or GRP ) fiberglass reinforced plastic industry for forty years by producing gratings, profiles and structures of high quality. The intrinsic properties of FRP - GRP (e.g. resistance to corrosion, non-magnetism, electric insulation, maintenance free) enables great application possibilities. The new and innovative FRP (Fiberglass reinforced polymers) products designed by M.M. (MARINADECK) are the perfect solution for docks in the marinas because of their resistance to brackish environments, to temperature shifts and U.V. rays coupled to their excellent antiskid and low water absorption properties. As these products require very little or no maintainance costs and are therefore ideal for complying with requirements by operators in seaside resorts and private marinas.
Available in a wide range of colours, FRP products perfectly integrate with the surrounding environment. The unique and original ""Q - PAINT"" special finishing rpovides the marinedeck range of products with antiskid properties according to the DIN 51097 norm (suitable for bare feet).
The FRP20005 conformity certificate issued by CSI is based on the EN 13430 norm, which attests that the production waste of gratings, structures, fences, manholes and coverings could be recycled and used in other production processes.
