Zwaginga, Jesper (author)
To decrease Europe’s harmful emissions, the European Union aims to substantially increase its offshore wind energy capacity. To further develop offshore wind energy, investment in ever-larger construction vessels is necessary. Designing these vessels is difficult however, as this market is characterised by a large but seemingly unpredictable...

In the super-yacht industry, value is added by customisation of design. From an engineering perspective, standardisation contributes to working more efficiently and effectively and thus less costly. The perspective of naval architecture company C-Job is that standardisation can contribute to engineering lead time reduction. Since customisation ...

This thesis aims in the development of a parametric modelling method for the preliminary ship design based on Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE). The research work was conducted in cooperation with C-Job Naval Architects. Nowadays, parametric models can be seen as the core of the design practice since they facilitate the exploration of the...

This thesis is about the identification of an optimal modular platform-based product development design process for a series of support vessels of the Royal Netherlands Navy, viewed from a Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding perspective. Because of increasing competition in the global shipbuilding market, the demand for ships with higher quality,...

Five naval support vessels are being replaced. For this replacement two focus points are important. The first one concerns creating more unity within the fleet, achieved by using the hull geometry as a monolithic part. The second one concerns the aim to reduce harmful emissions by reducing the effects of the energy transition by minimising the...

Grossmann, Martin (author)
The amount of international shipped cargo grows steadily, and seas are exploited for seabed mining and energy production more than ever. As a result, there is an increase in traffic density and decrease in free navigational space, potentially causing a higher incidence of dangerous navigation situations that may lead to ship collisions. This...

One of the most important reasons to investigating fuel cells is the increased level of regulation regarding emissions in the maritime sector, while fuel cells offer the opportunity to reduce these emissions. It was not clear what the impact of these systems would be on a yacht, the aim of this project is therefore to gain more insight into...

At Damen’s Research and Development department, continuous improvements are made to existing design practices using recent technological developments and fatigue design is currently on the anvil. High speed craft operating around the globe are subject to millions of load cycles (resulting from ocean waves) and therefore suffer from metal fatigue...

The international maritime sector accounts for about 2% of all global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the main greenhouse gas that causes global warming. Nations meeting at the United Nations International Maritime Organization (IMO) in London have proposed an initial strategy for the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from ships,...

Blanker, Folco (author)
This thesis investigated the possibility of alternative ways to loading and offloading flexlay vessels and provides a concept design. This was investigated because currently, the vessels designed by IHC, have to sail back to port to restock on pipes. During this time the expensive pipelayer is not laying pipes and thus not making money for its...

From shallow to deep water, from the well to the ship, from the offshore field to shore or between countries, many kilometres of offshore pipelines for transportation of hydrocarbons (oil and gas) have been installed over the last decades. Allseas’ Tog Mor is a shallow water pipelay barge capable of laying pipes up to a water depth of 25 meters....

Stolt tankers is the largest operator of deep-sea chemical parcel tankers. Parcel tankers differentiate form bulk chemical tankers by the additional features that the ships have, such as cargo cooling, cargo heating, many (small) cargo tanks, highest level of chemical resistant materials and notation to carry the most dangerous chemicals. These...

The subject of this master thesis is the development of a design tool to help Vuyk Engineering Rotterdam B.V. arrange the machinery spaces (engine room, switchboard rooms, separator rooms) aboard their vessels early in their design process. It applies the field of automatic design generation to a step in Vuyk’s design process to save time and...

Imagine standing under a load with a weight equivalent to more than 5,000 Tesla’s model X. Panicking is not an option and you need to be fully focused on completing a crucial task. There is no option to leave this precarious situation and your contribution is vital to the success of a multi-million dollar project. Sounds frightening, right?...

de Jong, Robin (author)
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has been working on the reduction of emissions in sea shipping. This has been done by stricter regulations over the past years in the form of emission limits. An important element which determines the success of this reduction, is the enforcement of the emission limits. A drawback of the current...

Mooren, Maurice (author)
During the early stages of ship design exploration, design freedom is abundant but problem knowledge is scarce and most costs are already committed. This amounts to an incentive to look at the influences of the requirements on a design, to better understand how a concept is defined. This thesis investigates the operational architecture...

The Defence Materiel Organisation found that using a design margin to estimate required space for logistic systems (e.g. staircases, hallways) during the concept exploration design phase is insufficient and impractical. A more educated estimation of required space for logistic systems is hard, because the configuration of systems is varied...

This thesis research focusses on winning at sea. "Winning at sea" requires presence of relevant capability at the right time and for the required time. A winning fleet is a fleet that has the capability to achieve this. The goal of this research is to define a winning fleet and to create a method that can provide insight in how such a fleet can...

Two important trends can be witnessed in the world of superyachts. Firstly, the luxury landscape is shifting from collecting tangible assets to pursuing exclusive tailor-made experiences. The second trend is the electrification and the use of batteries on superyachts. Due to the increase of emission restrictions, there is more interest towards...
