Modelling of Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) is challenging due to the strong coupling between the aerodynamics of the turbine and the hydrodynamics of the floating structure, which makes the dynamic response of the whole system highly complex. A variety of numerical approaches can be used to predict this response.<br/><br/>The frequency...

During single-blade offshore wind turbine (OWT) installation, wind disturbance results in blade root motion. The sensitivity to this wind disturbance is more significant for larger blades, reducing the allowable installation weather limit. A potential solution is a Hook Mounted Compensator (HMC) between the crane and the load that can provide...

With the pressing matter of climate change, the importance of renewable energy sources is increasing day by day. A large portion of this renewable energy is to be generated with the use of wind turbines, which are commonly located onshore. In recent decades, great effort has been put in the development to place these turbines offshore, because...

The demand for renewable energies is rising due to climate goals and high oil prices. Not only the established renewable sources like wind and solar are interesting to exploit. There is a vast amount of energy stored in the world’s oceans. To harvest this energy, one needs a Wave Energy Converter (WEC). There<br/>are already some prototype WECs...

In recent years, the demand for renewable energy has increased significantly because of its lower environmental impact than conventional energy technologies. As a result, wind power is one of the most important renewable energy sources. As land-based turbines have reached their maximum potential, recent market trends are moving into deeper waters...

Climate change is triggering among others a larger demand for offshore wind energy. This leads to new developments of which larger next-generation Wind Turbine Generators is the most relevant. These next-generation WTGs create problems for the carrying capacity of current-day installation jack-up vessels that work according to the conventional...

The energy transition, is one of the most important topics nowadays. Renewable energy sources contribution in the energy mix is growing rapidly. However, due to their intermittent power output, they cannot ensure system security and stability, and therefore, energy storage technologies are needed. In this direction, hydrogen is an energy carrier...

At the moment, the world is at the verge of an energy transition. One of the most promising green resources is solar energy, which is a rapidly growing market. However, to fully use its potential of economy of scale, the application of offshore floating solar should be explored. A promising option is the use of a flexible type of Very Large...

Within this thesis an attempt is made to improve the seakeeping of a Service Operation Vessel (SOV) by means of an active anti-roll tank (ART). It is researched if the addition of a wave prediction system can improve the ART’s performance. As the seakeeping of the SOV is most important for the installed motion compensated gangway, the...

Offshore solar power installations can be increased in size and efficiency compared to land based installations due to the availability of space and the cooling effect of water. To increase survivability in large waves, very large floating solar platforms can be made flexible. However, a flexible structure is susceptible to wrinkling due to...

Ventilation events are the result of masses of air being transported from the water surface along the hull, through the propeller plane. Previous research in literature has shown that ventilation induces large and sudden variations of the load on the propeller. The response of the propulsion system had not been documented before. This is a...

At the moment, offshore wind is an indispensable source of energy. Compared to onshore wind, wind speeds offshore are considerably higher and more constant. Furthermore, offshore wind turbines reduce noise and visual impacts. In contrast to fixed bottom foundations, floating wind can be economically feasible in global offshore waters that exceed...

Moored vessels in harbours around the world are affected by waves penetrating into the port basin. Hydraulic conditions can lead to severe vessel motions that influence the (un)loading efficiency and can even lead to the failure of fenders and mooring lines, creating unsafe situations for operating staff and <br/>A DMA is a chain of numerical...

The goal of this thesis has been to develop a concept exploration tool for zero-emission double ended ferries, that determines the feasibility of different energy systems, creates corresponding design parameters and helps decide between zero-emission energy types. <br/><br/>The research goal was achieved in three steps. Firstly, knowledge was...

This thesis research focusses on winning at sea. "Winning at sea" requires presence of relevant capability at the right time and for the required time. A winning fleet is a fleet that has the capability to achieve this. The goal of this research is to define a winning fleet and to create a method that can provide insight in how such a fleet can...

A naval submarine has to cope with different operational modes: sailing at<br/>the surface, just below the surface or fully submerged and at different speeds.<br/>Therefore it needs an appropriate power plant. In this research a first principle<br/>submarine propulsion model has been extended with a Proton Exchange Membrane<br/>Fuel Cell (PEMFC)...
