The consequences of climate change are becoming more and more visible. A significant cause of this is CO2 emissions; the shipping sector is responsible for 3% of global CO2 emissions. As a result, the Fourth IMO GHG Study 2020 presents pathways to reduce the GHG emission of the shipping industry by 50% by 2050. Recent IMO goals have overtaken...

With space constraints onshore, strong renewable resources available far offshore<br/>and growing green hydrogen demand, far offshore green hydrogen production<br/>may be an attractive option. To assess this potential, a literature review was<br/>conducted to identify the relevant technologies to be considered and suitable<br/>modelling methods....

The global awareness of the environmental and economic advantages of the circular economy (CE) concept has grown significantly. In order to implement this concept into company practices, a vital starting point is the adoption of a measurement framework. In the past years, the evolution of CE metrics resulted in maturity and practical...

Ensuring sustainability in shipping extends beyond fuel choices to encompass the responsible use of materials in vessel construction and maintenance. Shifting from the prevailing 'take-make-dispose' model to a circular economy is crucial for enhancing sustainable waste reduction in the industry. Unlike consumer goods, current ship design...

Shipping companies aim to reach the climate goals by following the rules from the International Maritime Oranization (IMO), which includes reducing Scope 3 emissions. Maintenance is a great contributor to the Scope 3 emissions of a shipping company, especially the transportation of spare parts. The current state-of-the-art supply chain...

A vessel’s life cycle consists of the design, construction, operation, and scrapping of the vessel. Current scrapping practices often happen in South Asia and Turkey, where adverse impacts on the environment and people’s health and safety manifest itself. These negative impacts fuel the growing global criticism on the vessel dismantling industry...

Strict regulations for carbon emissions from ships are introduced by the IMO and the EU. Various emission mitigation measures and low-emission fuel strategies provide solutions to reduce carbon emissions. This paper compares emission mitigation measures and low-emission fuel strategies for short-sea ships, within the constraints of regulatory...

The maritime industry faces a lot of uncertainty, and the energy transition has only increased this uncertainty. Ships will probably have to be converted to an alternative fuel during their lifetime and methanol seems to be the fuel with the most potential for offshore ships. By preparing for this, Design-for-Conversion to methanol, the costs of...

In the global energy transition where the shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy is needed, wind energy is a growing industry. In the offshore wind industry, Service Operation Vessels (SOVs) are needed to operate and maintain wind farms. To reduce the environmental footprint of SOVs at offshore wind farms, the possibility of battery...

This paper investigates the spatial requirements of alternative marine energy carriers and their impact on ship design and powering for constant operational requirements. A parametric design tool for bulk carriers, tankers, and container ships has been developed for the predicted future marine energy carriers to determine the main engine brake...

This thesis investigates the total environmental impact of various alternative marine energy carriers while taking the powering increase into account due to their disadvantageous spatial requirements compared to conventional fuel. A parametric design tool for bulk carriers, tankers, container ships, and trailing suction hopper dredgers has been...

The increasing concerns over the impacts of the maritime industry on the environment over the last decades has led to the creation of regulations to combat these negatives effects by the International Maritime Organization. Within the yachting industry, there is no consensus on whether these regulations can be fairly applied to yachts and there...

Organisations worldwide are decreasing their Greenhouse Gas emissions. The maritime industry is also contributing to this and trying to reduce its emissions but has done this inadequately. Reasons for this are that the required decrease in emissions varies widely between different vessels, many workboats are currently avoiding emissions...

Many recycled materials in different industries are traceable. The recycled content is often known in percentages. Steel is a material which gets recycled almost 100%. However it is not common practice to specify the recycled content for steel products. From a sustainability point of view this information can be very valuable. This thesis...

Superyachts are expected to be perfect since the owner pays millions for them, and the worst that could happen is tilting the ship once it floats. The lightweight, including the center of gravity, is essential to know with a high degree of certainty to prevent this. However, the lightweight is already expected in an early design phase, when...

Gartland Bonet, Nico (author)
The maritime industry has long relied on oils and heavy fuels as main energy carriers. The shipping sector still accounts for an important 2.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions. On top of this, current industry fuels contain high levels of sulfur and release nitrogen oxides upon combustion, which both can be extremely harmful to local...

This thesis provides a 'proof of concept' for a vanadium bromide redox flow battery-powered ship (E-Conoship) in the short sea shipping market of North West Europe. An elaborate analysis of historical voyage data has been carried out to determine operational feasibility. To determine economic feasibility, a cost-comparison model has been...

This research aims to determine the cost effectiveness of yacht emission reducing ret options through marginal abatement cost curves. A broad selection of five refit options is evaluated and implemented in the created tool. Using multiple scenarios by fluctuating fuel price and the implementation of hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), the effect...

To support Van Oord’s path towards a low-emission future fleet, this thesis has focused on the technical, environmental and economic impact of a methanol hybrid power plant design for new-build offshore working vessels (OWVs). These Dynamic-Positioning (DP) vessels are known for their large and dynamic power plants and have to limit their NOx...

This article aims at finding a match between Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM) and the preprocessing stage of shipbuilding. Preprocessing is the first stage of the ship production process, where steel plates are cut into parts, that are ground and sorted to build stiffened panels and ships’ sections. Quick Response Manufacturing is a management...
