The aim of the GATERS project is to design, manufacture and install a retrofit Gate Rudder System (GRS) and demonstrate the effectiveness of the retrofit GRS through sea trials and voyage monitoring. The retrofit solution for GRS will directly improve the vessels performance in energy efficiency and CO2 emission. The GATERS consortium consists of 18 partners across Europe. All the partners have complementary expertise necessary to develop, disseminate and exploit the project.

GATERS project partner İstanbul Technical University (ITU) is conducting its Gate Rudder System Model Tests.
