The yearly installed percentage of offshore wind jacket substructures is rising. The most common installation method for a jacket structure nowadays starts by driving the foundation piles in the seabed through a pre-piling template. The jacket is then lowered on top until the legs are resting on the foundation piles through friction-based...

Deep sea minerals can offer an additional resource to meet the increasing mineral demands, instigated by population growth and technological advancements. Deep sea minerals exist in different forms at the bottom of the ocean. In this research, polymetallic or manganese nodules are the kind that are of interest. The nodules are 1 to 12 cm large...

The Guyana-Suriname Basin off the coast of Suriname possesses large amounts of hydrocarbons. Suriname therefore wants to engage in developments in the shallow areas (0 - 30 m) offshore through their local oil company Staatsolie Maatschappij Suriname N.V. The expected discoveries are marginal and the soil consists of extremely low strength clays....

The demand for a substantial increase in renewable energy causes the need for more and bigger wind turbines. To counter the problem of available space, windfarms will move into deeper water. The challenge of deeper water in combination with higher turbines, require new developments in the wind industry. The often used monopiles make way for a...

Offshore wind farms are being deployed in ever more challenging conditions. Relatively unexplored are wind farms deployed in hurricane-prone regions. That is exactly the challenge that Mexican government faces as they want to expand their renewable energy resources by developing offshore wind in the Gulf of Mexico. The increased variability in...

Offshore wind turbines (OWTs), together with their support structures, are designed for an operational period of 20 years. The first generation of these offshore wind turbines has already reached or is approaching their designed lifetime of 20 years. Depending on the legislation and the governmental subsidies, a decision needs to be made about...

Offshore oil and gas projects usually require the presence of more than one facilities in the same location. These facilities need to be connected with each other in order to enable the transfer of personnel among each other. As a result, bridges are implemented for such purposes with their ends being positioned at extensions of the two...

An offshore wind turbine is placed on a so called “foundation” to gain height above the sea surface level. One of the used foundations is the jacket structure, which is kept in place by pre-piled supports. The piles are hammered into the seabed first, after which the jacket legs are stabbed into the piles. A template is used to guide the piles...

As facilities in the Dutch North Sea are approaching the end of their production life, the focus shifts from the developing to the decommissioning of facilities. The legislation on offshore pipeline decommissioning in the Dutch North Sea is currently unclear. The Minister can decide whether pipelines are to be removed or are allowed in situ. In...

The offshore wind industry is entering a new level of maturity. Announcements of bigger offshore wind turbines, the interest in new locations for offshore wind farms in harsher environments and the appearance of zero subsidy bids are proof of a rapid development. The next generation turbines are expected to be significantly larger and heavier...

In the transition from a fossil fuel driven economy to renewable solutions, the activities in offshore wind energy are growing. Operation and maintenance costs of offshore wind turbines are high, therefore alternative methods should be developed to reduce these costs. The replacement of heavy components, like a gearbox or a generator, is a...

Seafox owns and operates a fleet of 12 Jack-ups. The design life of these Jack-ups is typically around 30 years. However, some have remained operational after exceeding their design life. It is therefore critical to gain an understanding how long and under what conditions these jacks-ups are still able to operate safely. There are two main...

This thesis is aimed at finding the most cost effective way of executing Modular Execution Strategy (MES) for building pipe racks of a project that an engineering company Fluor B.V. is currently executing in Kuwait. A pipe rack is a steel structure which is constructed to efficiently place and support multiple levels of pipelines for industrial...

Renewable energy generated by offshore wind turbines (OWT) are nowadays more frequently used in the offshore industry. The design of OWT foundations share similarities with a typical offshore oil and gas construction, however a OWT farm usually consist of multiple foundations whose installation are more cost-sensitive compared to one oil and gas...
