With the growing shortage of seafaring personnel, on­board systems need to be more reliable to beable to sail without. Multiple efforts are done to be able to sail with unmanned systems (systems thatdon’t need maintenance while sailing), but for large unmanned surface vehicles, the P&P system isone of the systems that is not reliable enough....

Autonomous vessels carry the potential to increase the profitability of shipping companies. It is believed that an autonomous vessel design operates more efficient compared to a manned design. In this thesis the challenges of autonomous shipping and its consequences on ship design and the operation are identified. This information is used to...

Offshore wind plays a major role in the transition of conventional energy towards sustainable energy sources. To keep up with the increasing installation demand in this sector new offshore wind installation vessels are needed. There is a need for more certainty and predictability regarding the requirements of the future offshore wind...

The global temperature is rising as a consequence of the climate change. In order to stop the further increase of the global temperature, the international community has decided to aim at reducing global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the near future. To achieve this ambition, various alternatives in shipping need to be explored including...

Crew transportation executed by vessels started as a result of the development of offshore platforms close to land. Due to the growing oil demand in combination with limited space for new installations in shallow water areas, these platforms have expanded to deepwater locations. To transport crew over these longer distances, helicopters are used...

The CCNR will ensure that in 2050 inland ships do not emit any emissions. A PEM fuel cell system running on pure hydrogen could be a solution. However, the new system imposes some difficulties on the design of the inland ship. A calculation model is created to evaluate inland ships with this system and research these difficulties. The...

This thesis describes the process of selecting different greenhouse gas emission reduction technologies for the application on a redesign of a multi-purpose heavy-lift vessel. Only technologies were considered which did not negatively influence the operability or arrangement of the redesign. The best performing combination of technologies was...

Traditionally, ships are powered by fossil fuels in combustion engines, causing 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Alternative installations have yet to prove their reliability and are currently not as cheap or technological ready. <br/>To enable ship-owners to prepare their ship for the future, but postpone their decision on which...

The shipping industry contributes significantly to the global greenhouse gas emissions due to the use of cheap fossil fuels. The booming cruise ship industry is forced to reduce the emitted greenhouse gases and emission of carbon dioxide to be able to access remote areas with higher restrictions and to comply with upcoming regulations. Fuel...

Global endeavors to reduce emissions in the shipping industry are accelerating the interest in fuel cell systems. This paper explores the application of different fuel cell types (LT-PEMFC, HT-PEMFC and SOFC) in combination with different fuels (LH2, LNG,MeOH and NH3) in expedition cruise ships. An impact model is developed for the first design...

Damen Shipyards Gorinchem has found deficiencies in the process of developing concept designs of Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs). There is a need to increase the efficiency of this process, meaning that (1) the speed has to be increased, (2) the accuracy of designs has to be increased and (3) the risk of deviations of the project plan has to be...

The shipping industry needs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants. In order to achieve this reduction, the shipping industry will be faced with stricter regulations that are currently unclear. The lifetime of a ship is about 25 years. As a result, it can be interesting to already take a possible refit to an alternative fuel...

Jumbo Maritime is a shipping company active in the heavy lifting market. Jumbo uses stabilisers to enlarge the stability of the ship during lifting. By using stabilisers Jumbo can perform heavy lifts with a relative small ship, this is one of the major advantages. Downside of using stabilisers is that the installation and de-installation is a...

The inland ports play an important role in the Dutch transport system, but it will undergo changes as a result of the societal changes in demand for services and goods and the changes in hydraulic conditions. The inland port has to adapt to these developments in order to reduce the threats and to increase the opportunities, but this requires...

This thesis presents a methodology to improve the effectiveness of a ship design process. This methodology consists of performing systems engineering by means of a tailored framework and subsequent guideline. The first is a tool for designers to identify and define operational objectives and functional requirements of (sub)systems, to make...

Greenhouse gas emissions’ reduction goals of a 50% reduction by 2050 were established by the IMO. As a first step to achieve this reduction already by 2030 this project uncovers how much of the CO<sub>2</sub> emissions it is possible to reduce by combining the available state of the art technology. <br/>The reduction of CO<sub>2</sub> emissions...

In this thesis the differences between the monohull and semi-submersible are investigated. For a general heavy lift crane operation and its operational profile, the difference is performance and total cost are calculated. These are used to determine the turning point, the point where the semi-submersible is more favourable for a heavy lift crane...

Autonomous sailing is considered by many to be the next big thing in the shipping sector. Many companies, including Rolls Royce and DNV are investing heavily in research that helps in the development of autonomous shipping. Most research is currently being done regarding autonomous navigation, communication and cyber security. What is often...

Unmanned ships are a new concept in the maritime sector. The concept of unmanned ships is driven by safety of life, cost and the shortage in seafarers. However, it is uncertain how the change from manned to unmanned ships in?uences the design and exploitation of the ship. Therefore, the in?uences on the ship will be researched in this thesis....
