This paper investigates the technical, life cycle, and economic feasibility of a 30 MW upscaled downwind turbine, comparing it to a 15 MW X1 Wind PivotBuoy downwind turbine and a benchmark 15 MW IEA Umaine VolturnUS-S upwind turbine in the 450 MW Sud de la Bretagne I wind farm site. The study is significant due to the rising energy demand, the...

The field of wind energy has experienced significant expansion and development driven by the need to reduce reliance on fossil fuels. Offshore wind turbines have become increasingly popular leading to larger turbines with greater energy output to match the growing demand. The most common foundation type of offshore wind turbines is the monopile...

This study examines the effect of adding helical piles to the foundation mechanism of monopile installation templates. A monopile installation template is a gravity-based structure, which is placed on the seabed. The installation template is utilised for the installation of monopiles, and to ensure its verticality during this installation. At...

Due to the increasing size of offshore wind turbines, the jack-up vessels and cranes installing them need to increase in size. The increase in length of the crane boom results in an increase of the dynamic response of the crane. This increase in response results in higher loads in the crane. The magnitude of the higher loads are unknown and not...

Suction caisson jacket (SCJ) is one of the most promising substructures, under certain conditions, for offshore wind turbines. Their unique characteristic of large diameter (D) compared to their small wall thickness (t) conducts them an object of study, concerning their transportation to the offshore location, as their structural stability...

The current research stems from the motivation of controlling the phenomenon of traffic congestion in urban areas that can be deteriorated due to the implementation of a construction project. Nowadays, it is frequently observed that construction activities in complex urban environments appear undesirable effects on the communities surrounding...

The Arctic is warming more rapidly than other latitudes, which can result in the release of additional greenhouse gasses, global sea level rise and increase in extreme weather events. Additionally, this causes the rapid decline of sea ice and an ice free Arctic might occur during the summer in the 2040s. The decreasing sea...

In the Netherlands, there is an increasing need to create residential spaces in its already crowded cities to accommodate the growing population. Constructing high-rise buildings is one way to try to solve the issue. However, high-rise buildings are sensitive to wind-induced vibrations. The accurate prediction of the dynamic response is...

One of the ways that Transmission System Operators (TSOs) can become more sustainable is by integrating sustainable goals in their projects using the associated procurement and tender processes. However, there are several limitations related to this integration. This research aims to identify these challenges by looking at the Dutch TSO, TenneT...

The offshore wind market is developing fast due to climate change. To ful fil in the growing demand for offshore wind market, one has to look for floating offshore wind solutions as nearshore shallow waters are depleting. Several types of floating wind structures can be distinguished in the following categories; Spar, semi...

Projects in the Complex Engineer-to-order (ETO) sector are subjected to frequent schedule delays caused by engineering changes, supply chain delays and fabrication delays. Project organizations are faced with the challenge of realigning the project duration within the pre-determined time. Schedule delays often lead to 3-5% rise in project cost....

Ice loads on the bridge piers can be one of the major components for the Extreme Limit State (ELS) combinations, specified in the Euro Code. In arctic and sub-arctic regions, the ice action on infrastructures such as platforms, lighthouses, sub-sea pipelines, or wind turbines may exceed the total forces of wind, waves and currents and may,...

World energy consumption rises every year. Therefore, producing renewable and<br/>sustainable energy is necessary to protect the viability of this planet. The most well-known and promising form of renewable energy is that of wind power. The limited space in terrestrial areas yielded motivation to the growth of offshore wind industry. Offshore...

Since the oil price collapse at the end of 2014, operators in the offshore industry experience a decline in revenues and a need for downsizing. Simultaneously, the wind industry is growing every year, as an increasing amount of companies and consumers are investing in green energy. This creates opportunities for Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC),...

Plastic pollution of our oceans is becoming a bigger problem every day. The production of new plastics is extremely cheap and convenient resulting in a lack of incentive to retrieve plastic litter. Annually 8 billion kg of plastics enter the ocean polluting the ocean environment, of which the largest part via rivers and other waterways....

Shell is working on mono-diameter drilling (MOD). A MOD well, or MOD well section, has a (nearly) constant diameter over several sections. This is achieved by deploying expandable liners: a liner is lowered into position and is expanded by pulling an over-sized cone through it. This plasticly deforms the pipe, increasing its inner diameter to...

Cities are growing and more land is reclaimed. Reclamation is the process of creating new land from ocean, riverbeds or lake beds. New land is created by hydraulic placement of sand. The hydraulically placed fills are characterized by low densities and show a high variety in packing throughout the field. The relative density of the fills depend...
