A significant percentage of the offshore wind resource is located in waters deeper than 60m. Therefore, several floating offshore wind turbines (FOWT) have been conceived in recent years. In deep waters, it seems logical to also harvest wave energy. One of the options to harness both resources is to use a floating offshore hybrid wind-wave...

Offshore wind farms are being deployed in ever more challenging conditions. Relatively unexplored are wind farms deployed in hurricane-prone regions. That is exactly the challenge that Mexican government faces as they want to expand their renewable energy resources by developing offshore wind in the Gulf of Mexico. The increased variability in...

There is a great amount of wave power in earth's oceans. The amount of power harvested for electricity is however very small in comparison to solar and wind. One of the reasons for this is the lack of consensus on the best design of wave energy converters. This thesis develops a novel system design for a wave energy converter array that has...

In dredging operation, the high-pressure water jet is widely used for the excavation of soil. To study the jetting process and optimize the dredging devices, the moving vertical water jet penetrating cohesive soil experiments were carried out by Nobel (2013). However, in terms of the design optimization for the dredging...

Artificial intelligence is used in this research to predict the shelf life of strawberries. The prediction of shelf life is based on temperature measurements from the moment a package of strawberries is harvested till the moment this same package is bought by a customer in a local PLUS supermarket. The strawberries are harvested in the south of...

In the past decades, the global demand for energy has increased. The aim to reduces has let to an increase in the production of renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar energy. However, there are more major energy resources available in the oceans, such as wave and tidal power. The estimated potential global energy resource in waves is...

There is a growing demand for renewable sources of energy of which wave energy conversion is one. The Ocean Falls is an oscillating water column (OWC) system invented by BAM Infraconsult b.v. This system differs from conventional OWC systems since it includes a connection tube and an adjustable back wall. The OWC system is a resonance system for...

The diversity of offshore structures is increasing nowadays, as more and more offshore structures are floating. To study the opportunity for Ampelmann to expand to the floating market it is necessary to see if working with floating structures requires a new way of operating. A potential market for Ampelmann is transferring maintenance personnel...

Offshore wind energy is a fast-growing sector and it is quickly increasing its share in the European electricity mix. However, the costs are still high and the economic feasibility of offshore wind turbines is limited to shallow waters. This limitation plays a relevant role in the development of the sector and limits the offshore wind...

The S-lay pipeline installation method is characterised by its fast installation process and its application in all water depths. Offshore standards and design codes provide local buckling checks for combined loading criteria for load controlled and displacement controlled conditions, where a load controlled condition is defined as a case in...
