The Global Shipping industry is responsible for transporting 90% of global commerce and is responsible for 3% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Addressing this, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) aims to reduce GHG emissions from international shipping by 40% by 2030 and achieve net zero by 2050. This study explores Low...

A new simulation tool has been developed to provide insights into the refueling process of hydrogen. The tool is based on existing models, including a 0D gas model and a 1D wall model, which have been refined to assist companies like Future Proof Shipping, which rely on compressed hydrogen tanks. Although the model is still subject to changes...

Currently, our society faces a pressing challenge: global warming. The solution lies in the energy transition, which replaces fossil fuels with clean sources. This requires a global effort across all sectors, including shipping. While a significant portion of shipping relies on polluting fuels, the European Union’s Green Deal aims for climate...

Electrification of numerous end-users is a worldwide trend to address climate change, according to the International Energy Agency. This trend has also reached container terminal operators. Currently most of the ship-to-shore cranes employed are electrified, leading to an increase in the required electrical power demand and to an increase in the...

The demand of offshore wind energy has increased enormously in the last decade, and continues to do so in the foreseeable future. The monopile will remain the most important foundation structure. There is however not yet a durable solution for its main disadvantage; the under water sound radiation during installation. In this report a new,...

Seaport operators are becoming more environmentally conscious and are looking to electrify their terminals to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. This leads to higher energy-related costs and more congestion on the electricity grid. This thesis investigates the potential of demand response as a viable strategy to reduce energy-related costs....

Ambitions to limit climate change are incentivizing the expansion of renewable energy. In particular, offshore wind energy is expected to grow rapidly. To harness the full potential of existing as well as prospected offshore wind farms, the limited capacity of the internal cable network of the offshore wind farm, called the collector system,...

Hybrid technology can significantly reduce fuel consumption and emission for vessels that have high power demand peaks followed by long periods of low loading. Hybrid technology refers to powertrain layouts that consist of hybrid propulsion and/or hybrid power supply. Advanced energy management strategies (EMS) are required to make optimal use...

As a result of the need for higher productivity ship-to-shore container cranes, seven concepts are composed that can simultaneously transfer 4 Twenty Foot Equivalent Unit containers. All concept can be built on a standard ship-to-shore crane structure. These concepts are based on working principles found in (patent) literature. The concepts are...

To achieve high motion accuracy and repeatability for a variable reluctance tunable magnet actuator that uses linear controllers, this article proposes a novel actuator design that has a linearized force-flux relation. Prior designed variable reluctance tunable magnet actuators use a C-shaped actuator that has a quadratic relation between the...

The first large offshore wind farms installed in the North Sea Region (NSR) soon reach their technical end of lifetime. The wind turbines in these farms will have to be decommissioned after power production has stopped. Currently offshore wind turbines are decommissioned based on a method called reversed installation, a time consuming and...

The urgent development of green energy has become a worldwide trend in the war against the threat of global warming and the impact of extreme weather. The offshore wind farm is one of the solutions that are able to harvest energy sustainably from the environment. To erect these offshore windfarms, the debate about whether a new fleet should be...

Willeijns, Jelle (author)
As liquid bulk vessels are berthed in ports, auxiliary engines generate the electrical power demand, which emissions have a negative effect on the environment and local air quality in ports. Shore power is an effective solution for this problem. However, the large costs of implementing shore power and the absence of a technical safe design...

This research examines the possible pathways and available technologies that will help the shipping sector to achieve the climate goals set by the IMO. Reaching these goals will require financial incentives and policies regarding sustainability. These policies need to describe regulations at both international and regional level given the...

Offshore wind plays a major role in the transition of conventional energy towards sustainable energy sources. To keep up with the increasing installation demand in this sector new offshore wind installation vessels are needed. There is a need for more certainty and predictability regarding the requirements of the future offshore wind...

The European Union has set ambitious goals in their climate and energy framework to guide our transition to a more sustainable society. To achieve this goal, a mix of sustainable sources will have to be utilised, in which wind energy plays a crucial role. Offshore wind has been growing in popularity within this market, as the onshore market is...

Submarines face an ongoing (technical) battle to improve the operational effectiveness by increasing the submerged endurance and range. Installing lithium-ion batteries on new or refitted diesel-electric submarines has become increasingly interesting based on their relatively high energy density and specific energy. The characteristics compared...

In the field of vibration energy harvesting, vibration energy is tranduced to electrical energy to power small, low powered devices. Many energy harvesters are produced in the form of a resonator, where resonant amplification enables efficient operation of the energy harvester. At low frequencies below 10 hz, input motions quickly increase for a...
