In Ukraine a project is initiated to increase their energy independence, which is realized with diversifying the natural gas supply. By expanding the port of Yuzhny with an import LNG regasification terminal, it is possible to import LNG from various production plants. The scope separates the value of the terminal in short term and long term...

The world population is growing. Together with the population, the need for resources is growing, as is the need for the transportation of these resources. A significant part is carried out through marine transport, directly relating to the increasing need for port development. All over the world, a shift increasingly occurs towards applying...

The lock complex at Terneuzen is the main entrance for ships coming from the Westerscheld and navigating towards the cities of Terneuzen and Ghent. The construction of a new large lock at the lock complex of Terneuzen is planned to increase its capacity. This lock will be built between the existing locks. The ground level is situated at NAP +6...

Ports have evolved into an essential part of a nation’s economy [Schipper et al., 2015]. In order to obtain economic growth and prevent loss of trade and competitive position, the worldwide growth in port development will not stop [PIANC 2014a]. At present the port development process typically results in environmental mitigation and/or harm....

Recently an innovative nourishment method has been applied as a counter measure for coastal recession in the Netherlands. This soft engineering solution, also known as the Sand Engine, consists of a shoreline perturbation of $21.5$ Mm\textsuperscript{3} sand which will be redistributed along the shore by the natural forces of waves, tides and...

Due to Shanghai’s unique location, it is sensitive to sea level rise and land subsidence, which are directly related to urban flood protection. Flooding of Shanghai can be caused due to the following three factors: storm surge by typhoon, high tidal levels and sustained higher water levels in the Yangtze River and the Huangpu River as a result...

Seaports are often protected against waves and currents by rubble mound breakwaters. At the interface between outer breakwater slope and seabed a toe structure is often build, which provides stability to the outer slope. The toe consists of a relatively small heap of rock. Since 1977 dedicated studies are made to the stability of these rock...

The protection of breakwater structures is in this research considered. The design of rubble mound concrete armour layers for breakwaters can be divided in a single layer system and a double layer system. The single layer system is nowadays mostly applied because of the high interlocking, high stability of the structure, reduction of concrete...

In the context of the project "Widening of the Juliana Canal" a bottom protection layer is designed by dredging contractor de Vries & Van de Wiel Kust en Oeverwerken. Because part of the channel is embedded in gravel type soil layers and lies above ground water level, a water repellent function of this layer is necessary to prevent seepage.In...

The current report aims to understand the hydro- and morphodynamic response of the Western Scheldt in a large sediment dumping operation. This study investigates the estuary’s response to sediment dumping in the Everingen channel area, which is located in the middle of the Scheldt Estuary, The Netherlands. Furthermore, it studies whether these...

The coastal bathymetry is one of the most essential inputs for understanding, monitoring and modelling the coastal environment. A remote sensing technique called marine radar may overcome disadvantages of present monitoring techniques and has the advantage to obtain measurements with a high spatial and temporal resolution. A Fast Fourier...

Coastal squeeze is defined as the reduction in the space of coastal habitats to operate [1] and it is an important cause for (amongst others) coastline retreat, an increase in flood risk and salinity intrusion. Land use changes, such as deforestation and urbanization, reduce the space of natural habitats such as mangrove forests. This causes a...

Dit rapport geeft een capaciteitsanalyse van de Prinses Margrietsluis in Lemmer (Friesland). De sluis met één kolk geeft toegang tot het Prinses Margrietkanaal / de Hoofdvaarweg Lemmer-Delfzijl en vormt de op één na belangrijkste verbinding voor de recreatievaart tussen het IJsselmeer en de Friese Meren. Een relatief hoog aandeel van de 40.000...

Durban is located on the east coast of South Africa in the province of KwaZulu-Natal. It is one of South Africa’s biggest cities and has one of the busiest ports in Africa. To maintain Durban’s current economic position the Durban Port has to expand, which is problematic due to a lack of space. A solution is to develop a completely new port: the...

Offshore sand waves of several meters high and hundreds of meters long are formed in shallow seas due to the tidal currents. These sand waves can, amongst others, influence the burial depth of cables of offshore wind farms and obstruct navigation channels. For the Far Large Offshore Wind programme (FLOW), one of the goals of Deltares is to...

The offshore wind industry is a growing market in Europe due to the sustainable energy targets of European Union. In the coming years the Dutch government will invest in offshore wind farms at the North Sea. For a contractor like Boskalis the inclusion of favorable ecological conditions in designs is a unique selling point and can help to win...

Ports are civil works which have a major societal and economic importance. Quay structures are infrastructural elements of primary significance for the functioning of a port system. The ability to economically design quay structures with sufficient seismic resistance is therefore of great importance when situated in areas that are prone to...

Mixing systems are used in deep lakes to prevent blue algae from rapidly growing. Air bubbles rise from the bed, dragging water from below upwards. The resulting vertical circulation suppresses blue algae growth. However, these systems demand electricity of about €25,000 per km2 per year. The airlift promises to mix the water more efficiently,...

With the increase in size of offshore structures and the increase in costs related to the construction of these facilities, a necessity to optimize the construction of offshore facilities arises. An element that contributes greatly to these costs is the transportation and installation of the structures. Transportation costs are proportional to...
