Governments are looking more and more to invest in renewable energy sources due to the energy transition that is currently taking place. One of the many renewable energy sources is wind energy which is increasingly positioned at sea. Wind turbines in deep parts of the ocean can be placed on floating structures which are often moored to the sea...

Ship-to-Ship (STS) cargo transfers can significantly improve the efficiency of offshore installations while reducing their associated costs. However, the added complexity of cargo transfers involving ship-mounted cranes at sea poses significant challenges. To address this, crane manufacturers have introduced Relative Heave Compensation (RHC)...

The Netherlands has agreed, by signing the Paris Agreement, to be climate-neural by 2050. To reach this goal, many large-scale renewable energy projects need to be developed in the coming years using for example wind, geothermal or solar energy. The problem with these projects is that they require large amounts of land and are especially needed...

In this thesis, the friction performance of polyurethane tensioner pads used in offshore pipe-laying was investigated. Tensioner pads are used in pipe-lay to create tension in a pipe. The need to understand the pads better is because of the increased use of pipe coatings and pipe lay in deeper waters. Deep water leads to more pipe tension, and...

Over the last two decades, the size and capacity of (container) vessels calling port at the Port of Rotterdam have increased considerably. To moor these huge and heavy ships safely at the quay, fenders are frequently installed. The present guidelines for the “Design of Fender Systems”, which were established in 2002, are due to be updated in...

Fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) marine propellers potentially outperform metallic propellers in terms of efficiency and underwater radiated noise (URN) by hydro-elastic tailoring of the blades. Several methods can assess the extent of these potentials. Research shows that embedded sensing methods can be used in dynamic measurements of...

For floating photovoltaic systems, an uncommon type of offshore structure is considered, which is very flexible and deforms with the motion of the waves. In this research, the bending characteristics of a drop-stitch floater is analysed, which is an inflatable panel. By inflating the drop-stitch floater to a low air pressure, it obtains a...

Marine structures are frequently equipped with rubber fender systems, which absorb the berthing en­ergy in order to protect both the marine structure and the berthing vessel. These fender systems absorb the kinetic berthing energy by elastic deflection and the associated reaction fender force introduces a berthing impact load acting on the...
