van der Plas, Marijn (author)
In response to the leading narrative of increasing sustainability in the yachting sector, a research collaboration is started between the Delft University of Technology and Dykstra Naval Architects to examine the potential use of hydro generation on board sailing superyachts. By harvesting energy from the water flow when under sail, diesel...

This master’s thesis explores an alternative approach to enhance the emission performance and energy efficiency of offshore installation vessels without expensive retrofits. The concept involves employing swappable energy containers, currently used for inland cargo and tug vessels, for offshore installation vessels. These containers are filled...

Transshipment is a key component of modern-day shipping logistics. Container supply chains rely on transhipment hubs to access remote locations. With globalisation driving growth in container trade, maritime congestion is rising at container terminals in ports worldwide. This is expected to worsen as demand continues to grow. The ill effects of...

This paper provides an initial feasibility study of the potential installation of iron powder energy generation systems aboard a marine service vessel. After a short introduction as to the relevance of this study, the state-of-the-art iron powder energy generation is investigated. This information is then used to decide which marine service...

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...

In order to meet climate change mitigation targets, the shipping industry must change to an alternative fuel. From a ship design perspective, the switch to an alternative fuel is often a downgrade with respect to the use of conventional fuels. For instance, most alternative fuels have a low energy density, rely on technology that is not fully...

Ammonia (NH3) may reduce CO2 emissions from the marine industry as it is carbon-free and more energy-dense than hydrogen or batteries. Pure ammonia exhibits poor combustion characteristics, so several researchers have already operated small-scale internal combustion engines (ICEs) with ammonia-hydrogen blends. However, nitrogen oxides NOx and...

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...

This study aims to provide a proof of concept of a plug-in hybrid electric superyacht. In this way, the yachting industry can help reduce carbon emissions worldwide and potentially increase comfort levels. The concept takes advantage of the typical operating profile of a yacht. A statistical analysis is performed to discretise this and obtain...

Stimulated by the energy efficiency indices introduced by the International Maritime Organization, the increased attention for the environment as well as economical pressures emphasize the relevance of accurate resistance estimation for ships. This leads to a particular interest for added resistance in waves, a resistance component that is...

Odendaal, Kirsten (author)
The adverse human contribution to global climate change has forced the yachting industry to acknowledge the need to reduce its environmental impact due to the client's increasing pressure and potential future regulations to limit the ecological effects. Unfortunately, current real-world data presents a significant disparity between predicted and...

Superyachts are large emitters of greenhouse gases, as well as other emissions such as NO<sub>x</sub>, SO<sub>x</sub> and PM. In order to meet the climate goals set by the IMO, to reduce GHG emissions by 50% in 2050, alternative fuels are being investigated. Methanol is an alternative fuels with great potential. Methanol can be produced...

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...

To identify and improve the communication or information flow for a ship production process, this thesis provides an approach to use a Discrete Event Simulation (DES) model, based on Petri Net technique. By establishing a theoretical framework, the different simulation modelling options are analysed and based on practical requirements, a choice...

The Space@Sea platform is a sustainable offshore modular platform designed for a workspace at sea as an effort in coping up with the economic growth and allocating marine resources to more efficient uses. There are four potential applications of the platform: farming, transport &amp; logistics hub, energy hub, and living spaces. In the case of...

Current yard crane models used for studies on various logistic processes in container terminals involving automated yard cranes do not take automation systems into account. The operational container handling performance of automated yard cranes are therefore inaccurately predicted by current models. To avoid logistical problems and financial...

Structures at sea, which can either be floating or bottom-founded, are always affected by several types of dynamic loads from wind, waves and currents; with floating offshore structures subjected to more motion and loading from these loads. Hence, necessitating more in-depth hydrodynamic analyses. Increasing size and weight of these floating...
