Lock passage can potentially make up a third of a vessel’s travel time for inland waterway transport and therefore has a large impact on inland waterway and multimodal transport networks.<br/>To reduce the overall environmental and economical impact of transport, there is an increasing interest in inland waterway transport relative to road and...

In the near future, Rijkswaterstaat has the task to replace or renovate many ship locks. With the long-term project, MultiWaterWerk, Rijkswaterstaat aims to standardise components of these ship locks. This thesis contributes to the project by researching the potential benefits of standardisation of the bed protection design at waiting places at...

In 2050, the entire energy consumption in the Netherlands is foreseen to come from renewable sources. Offshore wind energy has the potential to enable this transition to a CO2-emission-free energy supply. Consequently, the development of offshore wind farms in the Dutch North Sea has been expanding enormously in the last decade. The Dutch...

The consequences of climate change are happening now, and will increase in the years to come. Understanding the energy consumption of dredging operations is becoming increasingly important for dredging contractors such as Van Oord. With the emergence of more complex dredging situations, including dredging at limited depths and short sailing...

Hydrogen is expected to be a significant force in this transition. Hydrogen can be produced using technologies that do not emit CO2 or other greenhouse gasses (“green H2”). Hydrogen can be transported in big quantities and long distances unlike electricity and can play the role of a clean fuel. The emerging hydrogen economy, which will be...

Ecosystems are under pressure worldwide, due to both natural and anthropogenic stresses. Stresses on ecosystems can cause a decline in biodiversity, a loss of habitat and a deterioration in ecosystem services. To avoid further pressure on ecosystems caused by advancing economic development, new infrastructure projects should be integrated into...

Nature-based initiatives have emerged as potential solutions to problems caused by saltwater intrusion in deltas found globally, but their successful implementation is enabled partly by a multi-stakeholder approach. The latter involves managing several parallel stakeholder objectives, which usually requires quantitative knowledge to understand...

The river Waal is part of an economic important transport-corridor that connects the ports of Antwerp, Rotterdam and Amsterdam to Germany. Ongoing processes such as (1) climate change, (2) large scale river bed erosion and (3) up-scaling of vessels threaten the future navigability of the river. This will lead to massive economic damages as taken...

Container traffic worldwide has shown a growing trend during the last years. Also, the number of containers handled per call has increased for many terminals. This poses challenges to existing terminals for more efficient operations and higher productivity. Automation is a way some terminals have tried to achieve this. Most existing automated...

Although inland waterways (IWW) are considered one of the most reliable transport modes, it is very vulnerable to climate change, more than other transport modes such as rail and road transport. The inland waterway transport (IWT) performance strongly depends on the available water depth in the waterway, which is related to the river discharge....

In recent years, several logistic optimisation models have emerged as powerful tools to assess and optimise the planning, costs, and workability of marine operations. Nevertheless, these models often rely on two underlying assumptions: (1) the significant wave height and peak wave period adequately describe (directional) wave fields, and (2)...

Hydrogen produced by electrolysis of water, powered by renewable energy, is seen as the key to enabling the energy transition and creating a new green economy. The result will be a trade market for low-carbon hydrogen where the trade routes will be determined by natural, technical, cost and geopolitical factors. However, to transport or store...

The pressure to reduce emissions in the sector of inland shipping is increasing. Especially considering emissions of environmental pollutants, the increasing pressure gives rise to the question how to get insight into emissions distributions along an inland waterway network. In this research, a bottom-up method is developed that is able to map...

High vessel traffic densities, restricted water areas, and low manoeuvrability are common factors that form constraints for the navigating vessels in port areas. While navigating through these areas, vessels get assisted by the Vessel Traffic Service (VTS). VTS operators (VTSO) are monitoring the vessels in ports and provide the navigating...

Over the recent years, the Dutch Continental Shelf has seen the erection of various wind farms in an effort to counter climate change by replacing fossil-based power plants. Since the majority of these sites use scour protections which have a substantial impact on the surroundings, the Dutch government increasingly stimulates and requires...

Due to the increase of global containerized trade and container vessel sizes, the necessity of container terminal development is unavoidable. On the other hand, designing a container terminal is a very complex process, and on a concept design phase, a quick assessment for the design alternatives should be done in a limited time, cost, and effort...

The accessibility of a port, which is mainly determined by the available water depth, is of economic importance for a port to distinguish itself from other ports. For the vertical design of navigation channels, the goal is to make routes equally accessible and not have bottlenecks; to have an optimal maintenance program and not incur unnecessary...

In order to increase safety and efficiency at sea the International Maritime Organization decided in 2000 that all sea going vessels were to implement Automatic Identification Systems (AIS). AIS is an automatic tracking system which broadcasts static and dynamic information about the vessel. Even though AIS was not initially designed for...

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...
