Offshore wind energy can play a key role in the energy transition. Reducing installation costs for offshore wind installation projects helps to be cost-competitive with other renewable energy technologies. Installation costs can increase when the installation project planning is delayed. Literature shows that offshore wind installation projects...

In the competitive offshore wind installation market, contractors like DEME strive to optimize operations. This thesis centers on the optimization of the support vessel fleet composition, which consist of a num- ber of walk to work vessels, and are a crucial part of inter-array cable installation. By fine-tuning this composition, operational...

The amount of floating offshore wind farms under development has drastically increased over the past years as the technology becomes viable for pre-commercial and commercial scale projects. Projects of this size require a streamlined, efficient production of the complete floating offshore wind turbine (FOWT), not only for manufacturing the...

The research on sustainable energy is growing, among which, wind energy catching growing attention and the potential has been supported by more and more countries. Compared with onshore wind farms, offshore wind farms have more advantages including the abundant wind resource at the offshore location and more possible construction areas. While...

Until recently, tenders in Europe were awarded to wind farm developers based on the highest auction prices or the lowest subsidized bids. The wind industry has suggested that non-price-related criteria should be considered for tenders, like plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As a result of the sustainable tender criteria, greenhouse gas...

Floating offshore wind turbines offer opportunities to harvest wind energy at deep-water locations, where the construction of fixed-base turbines is infeasible. The dynamic power cables, which interconnect turbines and transport the generated electricity, are under large dynamic stresses due to the environmental loads and the motion of the...

The maritime industry is preparing for a future where human presence is no longer required on board of ships. This will revolutionize the global execution of maritime operations and consequentially introduce unprecedented challenges to the corresponding logistics. This paper presents a non-standard facility location problem (FLP) that arises in...

Floating photovoltaic (FPV) is an emerging concept. Potential is recognized in combining FPV and off­ shore wind farms to create an offshore wind and solar farm. One of the remaining uncertainties around the potential of an offshore wind and solar farm is the value of the operations and maintenance cost. As one of the main contributing factors...

The main purpose of this report is to investigate flaws within Cornelis Tromp 25T lemniscate crane upper arm joint. This is done in order to figure out why the joint structure is experiencing significant crack propagation and what potentially could have led to a structural joint failure and death of an operator within a crane of the same model....

Industrial electric motors are at the heart of almost every industry. They are a 47 billion USD market in 2020 and consume 70% of all industrial electricity. They are generally paired with a gearbox and load, which is referred to as an electric gearmotor system. Being so essential means that it is important to avoid failures, 98% of 300...

In this report, a model is presented that automates and optimizes the loading processes for the transport of steel structures at the company of ASK Romein. This transport can be captured in two main loading processes: the loading division, which consists of allocating items to different trailers, and the loading sequence, which considers placing...

As part of the fatigue assessment of a stinger, member loads on tubular joints are determined with a beam model. A beam model is a simplified method of modelling complex structures out of circular hollow sections. In a standard beam model, no attention is paid to modelling the tubular joint itself. In the model, beam elements of the braces are...

For the shared mobility service providers, it is essential to have an economic operation and therefore, it is necessary to maximise their fleet utilisation. Of influence on the latter is the availability of the spare parts. The topics for which spare part forecasting research is already performed are different in several ways compared to the...

With the increasing focus on project planning in engineer-to-order(ETO) companies, tracking the progress of the design phase of a project is essential for effective planning. Such progress tracking currently is done through the regular feedback of discipline leads, which are intrinsically subjective. The information thus collected is then...

The control of a dedicated ITT system operating human driven MTSs and AGVs can be centralized, decentralized or distributed. The objective of this research is to find which controller structure is best suited for controlling a mixed traffic ITT system. In doing so, performance differences will be reviewed to gain insight into the effect of...

<br/>This thesis is done in cooperation with Sime Darby Oils Zwijndrecht (SDOZ). SDOZ is a refinery of vegetable based oils. The goal of this thesis is to optimize the scheduling of the Refined Oil Storage (ROS) of the refinery. This is done because within the company it is suspected that the current way of assigning the tanks, that is...

The increased implementation of digitalisation all over the world has led to an exponential growth of available data across various industries. Consequently, there is a large growth of Machine Learning (ML) techniques being applied to process data. Predictive maintenance is a digital strategy using condition-based monitoring techniques to track...

Route planning is an important part for companies that transport goods between different locations. To optimize the route planning, it is important that the travel time predictions come close to reality. A too tight schedule would lead to pressure to the driver, late fees and reputation damage, but a too loose schedule would result in wasted...

In the construction industry, it is common to predict manufacturing times of structural elements based on the experience of shop managers. With the increasing use of Building Information Models (BIM) and data analysis in manufacturing processes an opportunity for improving the accuracy of predicted manufacturing times arises. This research...
