Abstract
    The Towing Tank for Manoeuvres in Shallow Water at Flanders Hydraulics Research (FHR) is operated together with the Maritime Technology Division of Ghent University. The possibilities of the tank are continuously updated. This article therefore provides an overview of the capabilities for future reference among the scientific community. The paper also discusses a number of specific challenges characterizing experimental ship model research in shallow and confined water. Although the project of the second towing tank is still under approval, a sneak preview of its characteristics is given as well.
