Fiets parkeren?! Dat kan ook bij de achteringang / Parking your bike?! You can also do this at the back entrance

Wist je dat het ook mogelijk is om je fiets aan de achterzijde van 3mE te parkeren?!

In drukke periodes kun je aan de voorzijde van het gebouw moeilijk een plek vinden om je fiets neer te zetten. Het is niet toegestaan om je fiets zomaar buiten de rekken neer te zetten. Samen met FMVG hebben we extra plekken gerealiseerd aan de achterzijde van het gebouw.

Did you know it is possible to park your bike at the back entrance of the Faculty of 3mE?!

During busy periods it is sometimes hard to find a spot to park your bike. It is not permitted to park your bike outside of the dedicated bikeracks. Together with FMRE we have created possiblities to park your bike at the back entrance of the building.

Openingstijden 3mE tijdens de zomerperiode

Tijdens de zomerperiode gelden andere openingstijden. Tussen maandag 10 juli en vrijdag 11 augustus sluiten de gebouwen van 3mE om 19:00 uur (er is voor medewerkers met een daarvoor geautoriseerde campuskaart wel avondopenstelling). Ook gelden er aangepaste openingstijden voor horeca.

Download hier de pdf met de aangepaste openingstijden.

Opening hours 3mE during summer

During the summer period the Faculty of 3mE will have different opening hours. From Monday 10 July up to and including Friday 11 August the 3mE buildings will close at 19:00 hrs (employees with campus card authorisation for the evening can enter the building after 19:00).

Maritime students’ ‘Wave Parasite’ idea wins Our Oceans Challenge

The ‘Wave Parasite’ concept created by our two maritime students Roeland Schillings and Ruben de Jong was chosen by Our Oceans Challenge, a Dutch consortium of maritime companies, as the best idea to make our oceans cleaner.

The ‘Wave Parasite’ is a construction of floating structures moored around the monopiles of wind turbines at sea, which convert the force of waves into energy. This makes even more use of natural elements to generate energy. The consortium of companies in this initiative will now get together with the winners to figure out the best way of applying their project in practice.

The second prize was for an idea that separates plastic in rivers before it can reach the oceans by means of a great bubble barrier. This initiative was also given the public award by all those present in the room. An idea for reusing waste from the offshore for various other applications won the third prize.

The ideas were selected during an ‘Our Oceans Challenge’ meeting in the Rotterdam Maritime Museum. Oceans cover two thirds of our planet. They are a key food source for life on earth. Unfortunately, the ocean environment is in bad health as a result of an ever-increasing world population and economic activity at sea. The Dutch ‘Our Oceans Challenge’ partnership believes that despite these environmental challenges, it is possible use and exploit our oceans in a responsible way. The maritime industry would now like to assume its responsibility and encourage people to share sustainable ideas that can be put into practice.

This is not the first time that the partnership has welcomed innovative ideas from elsewhere. ‘Our Oceans Challenge’ launched its online platform, which people can use to suggest ideas, in 2014. At the time, five winners were selected after an initial selection. Ideas include ways of using plastic waste in the oceans in recycled products, generating energy with the help of tidal and wave motion, and the use of biological anti-fouling, which has been further developed together with industry, see here.
