Kortenhorst, Rembert (author)
To reduce the climate change impact of shipping and retain compliance with increasingly strict emission regulations, alternative fuels are required. Methanol is expected to be one of the renewable alternatives. However, it evaporates easily compared to for example Diesel and its vapours are toxic and flammable. Regulations prescribe the use of...

Nuclear power is currently not a commonly used option in commercial marine applications, despite its potential for significant emission reductions. This thesis is an overview of what has been done before, and what the potential is of modern marine nuclear power applications considering the long-term goals of harmful emission reduction in the...

The design space of power plants of naval surface vessels is ever expanding. As a result, the design space has become too large for a human design team to fully explore. Therefore, a concept exploration tool is introduced to generate and evaluate all possible concepts within the design space. An optimal solution is chosen based on ship...

The use of fossil fuels and their impact on humans and nature is becoming a bigger concern worldwide. An interesting concept to lower polluting emissions coming from maritime engines is the combined use of a dual-fuel engine and an underwater exhaust system. In the dual-fuel engine natural gas is used as the main fuel type. It is seen as a...

The reduction of the of harmful emissions that result fromyachting are an increasing concern and priority. It has been widely established that yachts have a significant contribution to the emission of greenhouse gasses and other emissions that are harmful to the environment and the public health. Measures must be taken that drastically reduce...

To reduce the CO2 emissions of the maritime industry, several alternative fuels are being researched to possibly achieve this goal. The absence of an infrastructure for alternative fuels in the current port environment is one of the barriers towards implementation of these high potential fuels. The goal of this thesis project was to create an...

During offshore construction with a Semi-Submersible Crane Vessel (SSCV) the vessel is station keeping by means of Dynamic Positioning (DP). DP enables a vessel to keep position and heading by utilizing its own propulsion, while being exposed to the environmental forces caused by waves, wind and current. In a comparison study between offshore...

The Royal Netherlands Navy (RNLN) seeks to eliminate net green house gasses and other harmful- emissions. In this search, the operability of her vessels need to be secured. One of the options for eliminating net carbon emissions is Power to Liquid (PtL) conversion to Methanol. Fuel cells, and in particular Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) may be...

The constant pressure on the maritime sector to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions has led the shipping industry to search for alternatives, such as zero-emissions propulsion systems, which would allow meeting the 2050 target imposed by International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulation. Fuel cells have demonstrated to substantially...

The shipping industry has a notable share in global greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants such as sulphur and nitrogen oxides. Fuel cells and batteries are identified as relatively new technologies for shipping with high potential and hydrogen is also considered as one of the most promising sustainable fuels, especially for smaller...

In the context of this thesis, the effect of various diesel-methanol blends in a diesel engine compared to conventional marine diesel oil is investigated by experiments and in-cylinder simulations. The main differences obtained between diesel and methanol are the lower heating value, heat of vaporization and cetane number. During the experiments...

In the present study, a Model Predictive Control (MPC) - based, Energy Management Strategy (EMS) is proposed, aiming at the minimisation of the fuel consumption of vessels with hybrid propulsion and power supply. This approach is capable of utilising online information regarding realistic future predictions of the propulsive power demand,...

The maritime sector is important for the facilitation and growth of global trade. Currently, about 90% of the goods are transported by ships and as a result, the number of ships has risen, increasing the emissions related to shipping. Pollution caused by exhaust gas, especially the sulphur oxide emission, from marine diesel engines has become a...

The interest in alternative fuels in the maritime sector is growing due to increasing concerns of the effect of harmful emissions. Hydrogen in combination with a fuel cell has a high potential to be a more environmental friendly solution than the commonly used fossil fuel systems. However, the use of hydrogen encounters problems looking at the...

Waterborn transport currently runs on diesel driven Internal Combustion Engines<br/>(ICE). To reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions an option is to shift towards<br/>alternative fuels, like alcohols. This thesis focusses on methanol in ICEs. The<br/>combustion of methanol in ICEs can be done in numerous manners, where fuel<br/>altering,...
