The inland waterways are an important part of the freight transport system of the Netherlands. In the coming years, a lot of maintenance and construction works are needed to keep the network operational. This can temporarily impact the availability of the waterways section which can have negative effects on the performance of inland vessels and...

The city of Rotterdam and its port have been constantly growing over the last decades. As the port is ensuring a place in the top ten ports in the world, the city of Rotterdam is changing as well, growing and becoming a more international town. The municipality of Rotterdam is planning to build a 3rd bridge that will cross the Nieuwe waterweg...

The European energy system is significantly changing to restrict the rise in global average warming. There is a shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources, which resulted in an exponential growth of offshore wind energy capacity in the North Sea. However, the North Sea is already one of the most intensively used sea basins in the world...

Zutphen is a city in the Netherlands, located along the IJssel River and the nautical access of the Twentekanaal. Despite its beneficial location, Zutphen barely uses the inland waterways for freight transport. This lead to the objective of this thesis: To provide insight how a viable inland waterway terminal be realized in Zutphen’s business...

The main objective of this study is the realisation of a computer tool. The function of the tool is to estimate the required dimensions and quantities of essential container, dry and liquid bulk terminal elements, in an early design phase. As well as to give an estimate of the construction costs of these marine terminals. Terminal element...

The main goal in this research is to predict how translation waves evolve in a canal and what the consequences for the workability of water-borne construction equipment are. Translation waves arise due to filling and emptying of lock systems. In this research the measures to reduce effects of translation waves are control options related to the...

The objective of this study is to determine whether a floating terminal could be a suitable and feasible solution for the realisation of a new berthing location for the cruise ships of the future. This feasibility study is based on the amount of downtime of a terminal due to excessive motions because of wave loading. Therefore, this study...

In Ukraine a project is initiated to increase their energy independence, which is realized with diversifying the natural gas supply. By expanding the port of Yuzhny with an import LNG regasification terminal, it is possible to import LNG from various production plants. The scope separates the value of the terminal in short term and long term...

Port locations are often selected to optimize access to land and navigable water. Many ports are therefore situated at the mouth of an estuary or along a coastline. Besides being economically important these locations are also often valuable from a biodiversity point of view. Human interventions along the coast such as port development often do...

This MSc thesis report discusses a greenfield deep-sea port development in a developing country along a shallow oceanic coast. A port layout is developed based on a fictional cargo forecast. In the interest of port adaptivity, this layout is kept flexible as possible. The design is subsequently checked with regard to wave penetration and...

From previous engineering projects it turned out that it is difficult to determine the transmitted wave height of floating breakwaters without performing physical models or using numerical models. In this thesis it is investigated which steps should be taken during the preliminary design process in order to predict the effectiveness (wave...

Two typical types of channels are identified on the PIANC rules (one and two-way channel) and a detailed set of rules for conceptual design purposes is presented. Nevertheless, no explicit definition about when to use which type of channel is provided. For assessing the performance of an access channel, a new simulation model is programmed. This...

Volgens de Waterwet dienen elke zes jaar de Hydraulische Randvoorwaarden (HR) te worden vastgesteld. De HR bestaan uit hoogwaterstanden en golfrandvoorwaarden voor de toetsing van waterkeringen gegeven overschrijdingskansen welke in de wet zijn vastgesteld. Ook voor waterkeringen in havens en afgeschermde gebieden dienen de HR vastgesteld te...

Dordrecht Seaports (DS) is an inland port located next to Rotterdam with a direct connection to the North Sea. Since the first of July 2011 the Port of Rotterdam Authority (PoR) is taking over the management of the port from the municipality of Dordrecht. In the current situation not all companies are port related. The port related companies are...

This master thesis focuses on the transportation of coal from two coalmines in South Kalimantan to the Java sea. Coal has to be transported from the coal mine area, situated hundred kilometre land inward, to a location with sufficient water depth, at the mouth of the river Barito. The biggest challenge for the new transport system is to increase...

The Port of Leixões is located in the north of Portugal. The operational conditions at berth “A” are affected by several factors resulting in a down-time of the berth of about 20%. In order to describe the behaviour of the moored vessel physical model tests were performed at the Faculty of Engineering University of Porto within the research and...

Albania has the following major sea ports: Durrës, Vlora, Sarandë and Shëngjin. The port of Durrës has the biggest share in the volume of import/export in Albania, nearly 75%. Due to current development rates, limited possibilities for expansion and pollution in the city because of its vicinity to the port, projects are identified to construct a...

Op moment van schrijven is de aanleg van Maasvlakte 2 in volle gang. Het masterplan is echter nog in ontwikkeling, maar steeds meer keuzes worden vastgelegd. Daarom moet onderzocht worden of er op Maasvlakte 2 een ruimteclaim voor een Binnenvaart Service Centrum (BSC) moet blijven staan. Een BSC is een neutrale binnenvaartterminal waar een deel...
