Dykstra Naval Architects are regularly designing large classic sailing yachts or motor-sailors, of which the draft is an important design restriction.The sailing performance is increased by adding lift-generating appendages,without increasing the draft. An example is a retractable centre board, havinga big influence on the sailing properties....

Crew of small fast ships often experience exces- sive vertical accelerations when sailing in waves, leading to discomfort and injuries. In an attempt to avoid this, in good visibility experienced operators reduce speed voluntarily when they anticipate that the next vertical peak acceleration will be unacceptably large. However, at night and...

Allseas Engineering B.V. is an offshore contractor, focussed on offshore pipeline installation. Since the late 80's, Allseas has been working on the design and construction of the Pioneering Spirit, a heavy lift vessel designed for the single-lift installation and removal of offshore topsides. From 2019, it is scheduled to be able to single-lift...

This master thesis describes a method to determine the workability of an offshore heavy lift operation. By creating wave realisations based on and statistically equivalent to measured ocean weather data, a quick assessment of the risk of failure can be achieved.

DAMEN tugs can be found in nearly any port or terminal around the world. Operating in ports and terminals requires the tugs to be highly efficient in ship handling in order to quickly escort larger vessels. To predict the escort capabilities of a tug, DAMEN has developed the computer program DAMEN TUGSIM. Since the tool is becoming a decisive...

New floating wind turbine designs are needed to reduce production costs and to increase mass production feasibility. The TetraSpar floating wind turbine achieves these goals by being constructed using components highly suitable for standardization and industrialization. The design makes use of a suspended submerged counter weight to obtain a low...

The rudders of moored FPSO’s are fixed in the center to avoid unwanted rudder motions. This is often done by mechanical locking of the rudder machine. Due to waves and current, the loads on the rudder are higher than expected, causing failure of the locking system. An empirical study is executed to predict the combined wave and current loads on...

The new rapidly growing wind energy market has been moving to offshore waters the last few years. New techniques and growing experiences make it possible to move to challenging offshore domains and towards harsher conditions and deeper waters. From the oil & gas industry a lot of expertise is already available on support structures. The...

The main goal of this project is to determine the optimal location for an OTEC installation with a minimum lifespan of 30 years off the coast of Barranquilla and to make an anchor mooring design for the floater on which this installation is located. Bluerise has identified an area near the coast of Barranquilla for which OTEC can be applied....

With the shift towards a more sustainable energy society, the increase in the electricity produced by renewable energy sources is steadily rising. However the cost of renewable energy sources still remains high compared to the traditional fossil fuel based energy sources. With the total worldwide energy demand also rising, combining renewable...

The Poineering Spirit is a heavy lift vessel that can lift offshore platforms in a single lift. Due to the waves, the vessel moves with respect to the platform. To make sure the vessel does not hit the platform, a motion compensation system is installed on the Pioneering Spirit. The maximum allowable vessel motions during
the operation are...

Large water motion inside the moonpool of vessels operating in waves can be excited by pressure fluctuations produced by external waves and vessel motion. Extreme consequences of this effect may include injuries for crew members, and damages to deck equipment resulting in downtime for the vessel. The accepted method to predict this non-linear...

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...

Jumbo Maritime is a heavy lift shipping and offshore transportation & installation contractor. The Fairplayer is one of the J-class vessels that is capable of performing offshore installation work. The two 900 ton Huisman cranes can lift up to 1800 ton combined, but the insufficient static stability of the Fairplayer results in a maximum...

Airborne Wind Energy (AWE) is a field of engineering that utilizes tethered aircraft for the generation of electrical power. The potential for the application of AWE in deep-water offshore environments on top of floating foundations is enormous. Where conventional wind turbines would require a very stable platform to reduce motions at the...

Two important performance parameters of a ship are fuel consumption and motions in a seaway. Besides a well-designed hull, several appendages can be used to increase the performance. One of these is a resistance reducing fixed foil behind the transom of the ship. This wing has the potential to create large lift forces near the aft of the ship,...
