Updated: Titanic II model tests

The first model tests for Titanic II were carried out on September 9 - 12, 2013 at the Hamburg Ship Model Basin (HSVA). The 9.3 m wooden model of the ship was put through propulsion and power testing in a 300 m long tank at HSVA's facilities in Hamburg.

Blue Star Line Chairman Clive Palmer has announced Blue Star Line in conjunction with German hydrodynamic service and consulting company Hamburg Ship Model Basin (HSVA) will next month be conducting the first model testing of the proposed Titanic II.

Hull form design with propulsion arrangement is developed by Deltamarin and optimised with extensive CFD-study. Original Titanic hull form characteristics above the design waterline have been followed, but the lower part is designed for high fuel efficiency and good seakeeping capabilities.

Model test coordination will be taken care of by Deltamarin as part of our contract with Blue Star Line.

Reply to Steven Sladic comment on 2014-02-25: The owners, Blue Star Line together with the selected yard will make the decision when to proceed to shipbuilding contract. We are not in a position to say when that will happen.

Any new developments in the project, I just hope the contract is about to be signed.

Reply to kevin's comment on 2014-02-09: We have identified the original suppliers as far as possible. Their products will be considered as far as feasible.

Name: kevin This is the company that helped with the davits in the movie and on the actual Titanic. That would be cool if you used them on the Titanic II.

Reply to Arthur Currie's comment on 2014-02-04: Thank you for your kind words. We started the project by doing a feasibility study. The project team investigated the design of the original Titanic and implemented all the design features as far as feasible. The new general arrangement shows the key features of the original Titanic. However to build a cruise vessel fulfilling the highest safety standards, rules and regulations of today requires many changes. A new "safety deck" has been added featuring the state of the art lifesaving appliances and new common public rooms.

So when will the first steel cut occur?

I applaud you all for being patient through all the numerous requests for information that come your way. Out of curiosity, how did the designs start? Was it as simple as "sketches on a napkin"? Or were there firm details to go on.... Put another way, did original designs from Olympic class get used as a start point and improved on, or were the designs for the new ship fresh from the keel up? Thanks for being receptive to curiosity.
