Climate change due to greenhouse gas emissions is prompting the IMO to reduce emissions by 80% by 2050. This thesis focuses on designing modular propulsion systems for mid-speed sailing vessels to meet these regulations. It designs a framework to generate and swiftly evaluate propulsion system designs on the basis of five performance indicators:...

With the rapid advancement of technology, we are moving towards a society that is increasingly driven by computer intelligence. At the same time, we are facing pressing environmental issues that are pushing us towards cleaner solutions. One industry that is heavily influenced by these two factors is the automotive industry, where autonomous...

The company H2 Marine Solutions has designed a zero-emission hydrogen powered boat. This boat is compared to its fossil fuel counterpart more than twice as heavy. The reason for this is that the system components that are used in the hybrid powertrain of the hydrogen powered boat are heavier. The main question of this research is: How can we...

Green hydrogen plays an important role in the energy transition. It can function as a storage medium, as well as a replacement for fossil fuels in transport or high-temperature heat processes. However, the economic feasibility of electrolysers has proved to be a problem. Even though a lot of research has been done to the electrolysis technology,...

Due to the growing demand for offshore wind energy and the increasing wind turbine sizes, a shortage of capable installation vessels is anticipated by 2024. Consequently, the utilisation of heavy-lift vessels, previously not employed for bottom-founded or floating offshore wind turbine installations, may become imperative to realise the offshore...

Chain belt conveyors have become a popular choice for transporting materials in diverse industries. The primary driving force behind these conveyors is the gearmotor, which is composed of an electric motor and a gear unit. The industrial electric motor market is estimated to be 21 billion USD and consumes up to 70\% of the electricity by the...

The process of salvaging wrecks can be costly and time-consuming, making it crucial for salvagers to select the appropriate technique(s) and accurately estimate the total costs to minimize expenses and optimize efficiency. Salvagers typically use their expertise, experience, and data from previous projects to make these estimates. Diamond wire...

This research analyses the potential of Electrical Signature Analysis (ESA) as a means for condition monitoring of mechanical defects of induction motor driven thruster assemblies in the maritime industry. This is done by measuring the three phase current and voltage of three thrusters, with different health conditions, of a marine vessel...

This paper describes a real-time energy management system developed for a solar park in the Netherlands using an alkaline electrolyser. The optimization problem is split into a two-step optimization, taking into account the specifications of the electrolyser and allowing the electrolyser to respond to changes in the imbalance market. The first...

Increasing emissions have led to the search for alternate power systems to provide energy for maritime applications. The recent drop in battery prices (over 200 % in the last ten years) has made battery energy storage one of the practical alternatives for fossil fuels to curb emissions and reduce the carbon footprint of the maritime sector. The...

A major transition became necessary for the maritime industry to meet the IMO’s targets for mitigating the carbon footprint of the sector by at least 50% by 2050. One of the promising methods to lower the emissions is the ship's hybridization. An enormous increase in pilot and demonstration projects for that purpose is being observed. This...

Due to more stringent greenhouse gas (GHG) emission regulations in the maritime industry, solutions are being sought to decrease the GHG emissions of crew transfer vessels used in offshore wind farms. Multiple alternative fuels and power generating systems can be used to decrease these emissions. In this research, a comparative study is...

Over the coming decades the worldwide fleet of ships will have to change to reduce emissions. Hybridisation of the propulsion system is a stepping stone to full electrification, which is required to reduce emissions of the maritime sector to zero. In hybrid propulsion systems, clutches are used to switch between drive engines when transitioning...

New trends in the offshore wind industry show that wind farms are being built further onto sea. This also means that turbines have to be installed in deeper waters resulting in new challenges for the offshore wind industry. The commonly used jack-up vessels have a limited operating depth and therefore floating installation vessels become an...

The ongoing transition towards sustainable energy has resulted in a large interest in alternative sources. Proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) use hydrogen to produce energy without harmful emissions, and they can be used in a range of applications, from mobility to industrial power generation.<br/><br/>One hurdle that still stands...

The Autonomous Low Energy Replenishment Dredger (ALERD) strives to revolutionize the dredging world. The ALERD operates autonomously underwater, which saves energy during the dredging process and transit. Autonomous underwater operation drives the need of alternative energy facilities. However, due to the energy savings of dredging, alternative...

The Ampelmann A-type hexapod platform is a motion compensating gangway system designed to transfer offshore personnel between a crew transfer ship and an offshore bottom founded structure. During operation, the platform is moved to compensate wave induced ship motion and create a still standing platform from which crew can safely transfer to the...

Current dynamical models of the slewing motion of offshore cranes cannot predict the occurring vibrations during the design phase that arise during slewing. The relatively small pedestal crane on the Sleipnir experienced severe vibrations during the slewing motion in both the crane house and the boom, which were in the order of 1 and 5 Hz. As a...

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...
