Offshore floating wind turbines are one of the newest technologies in the renewable markets today. The world’s first floating wind farm, the Hywind Scotland Pilot Park, was commissioned in October 2017 and has been competitive with fixed bottom offshore wind turbines. There is a global push to make more renewable energy available, but less...

Plastic pollution in the marine environment is an increasing problem with severe impacts on ecosystems and economies around the globe. The Ocean Cleanup (TOC) Foundation develops a floating barrier able to intercept, concentrate and extract plastic from the marine environment. TOC has conducted several experiments and numerical studies to...

The laws and regulations regarding the radiated noise and the on-board noise of the ship are expected to be stricter in the future. There is a big concern in this field, especially for the underwater noise. The radiated noise from the ship is harming the life of the underwater mammals while the on-board noise is threatening the health of the on...

The purpose of the research is to provide insight into the conversion of a second-hand vessel into an Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) plant. To this end, a 10 MW ship-shaped OTEC platform, located in the waters around Curaçao, has been designed.
At present, only a few of OTEC plants are in operation, primarily with the purpose of...

When working offshore on a floating vessel, the vessel will be subjected to wave induced motions and with a moving crane tip, a suspended load can start to swing. When the motions of the load become too large, the operation is interrupted. Alternatives such as jack-ups, function as a fixed platform to which the crane is attached, therefore...

When drilling for oil or gas, wells are typically constructed using a conventional or telescopic well design. After a section of the well has been drilled, a steel casing (or liner) is inserted into the hole preventing the collapse of the hole. The next well section has a smaller diameter as it’s casing must pass through the previously installed...
