The offshore wind industry is rapidly advancing, expected to play a crucial role in renewable energy production, with a growing emphasis on addressing associated environmental concerns, particularly the impact of underwater noise generated during the installation of wind turbines. In response, bubble curtain technology (BCT) has emerged as a...

Aiming to comply with the Paris Agreement, the reduction of Europe’s GHG emissions in the energy sector is a must. Due to the intermittency of renewable sources, energy storage technologies are essential to this plan. Offshore Low Head Pumped Hydro Storage (LH PHS) is presented as an alternative to partly solve this problem. Considering that its...

The rapid increase in global population and rising demands have resulted in a shortage of clean water, depleting several of the Earth's reservoirs, especially those that reserve fresh water. Just 0.007% of the water on Earth is used to hydrate and feed billions of people, as determined by the water balance of the planet. Water-stressed nations...

To overcome the problem of wave-induced vessel motions on the crane tip, technologies have been developed to compensate for these motions. Most vessels nowadays, are equipped with dynamic positioning systems, these systems reduce the yaw, surge and sway movement of the vessel. This leaves, the motions roll, pitch and heave uncompensated. To...

The demand for renewable energies is rising due to climate goals and high oil prices. Not only the established renewable sources like wind and solar are interesting to exploit. There is a vast amount of energy stored in the world’s oceans. To harvest this energy, one needs a Wave Energy Converter (WEC). There<br/>are already some prototype WECs...

The world is currently in a global energy transition. To reach the global energy goals requires massive deployment of clean and efficient energy technologies. The use of solar photovoltaic (PV) therefore has to be scaled up. Offshore deployment of floating PV would be a suitable solution. There are currently different concepts in development for...

Adapting the size of upending cradles according to the ever-increasing dimensions of offshore wind turbine monopiles is costly and requires structural modifications to the associated Heavy Lift Vessels (HLVs). This study therefore investigates the potential of the Monopile Upending Smart Tool (MUST), which is a platform suspended in the HLV...

Renewable energy sources, such as wind energy, are gaining a lot of traction across the world. India intends to improve the amount of wind energy integration into the national electricity system. Wind/solar energy's major drawback is its inherent changeability and source unpredictability, making it a challenging resource to dispatch.<br/><br/>A...

Under real sea conditions, floating vertical-axis tidal turbines experience motions in six degrees of freedom which influence the relative velocity perceived at the turbine's blades, with a direct effect on the loading and performance of the rotor. Understanding the fluid-structure interaction of a vertical-axis tidal turbine under the floating...

Hydrokinetic energy is an environmentally friendly source of electricity and it has the advantage to be more predictable compared to other renewables. According to IRENA (2020), the capacity of converting hydrokinetic energy into electricity is expected to increase in the coming decades as many concepts are in the pipeline. One of these...

A changing climate means that the combination of storm surge and river flood waves is becoming increasingly likely. The turbinepumping station of the Delta21 concept, is designed just for that. The energy storage lake and the pumps capable of up to 10,000 m3/s mean that even the highest river discharges can be sluiced to the North Sea in the...

For the development of Arctic offshore structures, design ice loads are required. These design loads represent the ice loads a structure may be exposed to for specified requirements. The design ice loads depend on magnitude of the ice loads and on the probability of exposure to the ice loads. Both are impacted by local sea ice conditions.<br/>...

In 2022 the first 12 MW offshore wind turbines are expected to be installed. Due to the continuous upscaling of wind turbine generators new problems are expected to arise during the installation of the turbines. Especially the workability of the installation of larger wind turbine blades, which are already causing problems during the...

The modeling method for the performance of positive displacement pumps of hydraulic pumps is based on collecting operational data of the pump for its operational envelope and using equations with empirical fitting parameters and fit these equations to the data. This way values for the fitting parameters are obtained, with which the equations can...

After the construction of the Grevelingendam (1965) and Brouwersdam (1971), the tidal movement in Lake Grevelingen disappeared. This caused a deterioration of ecological parameters influencing the surrounding flora and fauna and consequently a decline of the water quality set in. Amongst others, Rijkswaterstaat and the provinces of Zeeland and...

In the simulation of floating wind turbines, a traditional rigid floater assumption becomes less valid while pursuing large size floating wind turbines with steel-efficient floaters. Up to date, hull flexibility still cannot be efficiently incorporated into aero-servo-elastic-hydro simulation tools, and the possible influence of hull flexibility...

With a fast growing world population, the lack of fresh water is one of the world’s biggest future concerns. Water stress can lead to conflicts, holds back economic growth and has a major impact on human health. Nowadays, more and more countries that lack fresh water sources are using the saline water from the oceans and desalinate it to produce...

Land scarcity is increasing and therefore one of the main challenges for renewable energy in the future is ‘physical space’. While renewables need a lot of space compared to conventional energy sources, and the competition for space is already increasing (food production, housing etc.), leading to higher land costs and opposition. Public...

The standard sign gantries at the highways in the Netherlands have different geometrical and structural characteristics than sign gantries in other countries. The sign gantries have in total four oblique columns instead of two straight columns and have a triangular shaped spatial truss beam. The design loads that are currently taken into account...
