On Saba, an island located in the Caribbean, a new harbour will be constructed. To protect coral reefs in the vicinity from light attenuation and sedimentation, it is important to monitor and predict the turbidity stresses caused by the dredging operation. In the early stages of such projects involving dredging operations, a common approach is...

The lock of Hansweert, located in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands, serves as a crucial inland shipping node between the Western Scheldt estuary and the Rhine Delta. The outer harbour of the lock complex provides the connection to the Western Scheldt and accommodates waiting facilities for inland ships. The Western Scheldt is a vital...

Currently, inland waterway safety assessments rely heavily on historic accident data and expert opinions, often lacking comprehensive qualitative and quantitative information. Addressing this gap, this thesis introduces a method based on Automatic Identification System (AIS) data to identify anomalous vessel behaviour for enhancing safety...

Increased complexity on the waterway asks for more insight into distances between vessels. A method is created to determine the ship domain in a port area based on AIS data analysis. The method includes location, encounter types, relative position and ship-specific parameters.

In the early project phase, decisions are made when considering a port basin berth layout that affects the outcome and the success of the project. In order to make a decision regarding the berth layout, port planners create a set of variants for comparison and assessment in order to pick the basin berth layout that suits the project goals the...

Inland shipping is widely acknowledged as a sustainable mode of transportation due to its low energy consumption and emissions in comparison to road and rail transport. However, with growing concerns around reducing emissions in the transportation sector, there is pressure to address environmental issues associated with inland shipping. In the...

This study integrates strategic decisions and operational control systems in autonomous shipping. By providing ships with situational information and adding a virtual operator, we show that vessels can make informed choices regarding their route and engine settings. To demonstrate this integration, we developed new components that were tested in...

The increasing severity of river drought poses a potential threat to the operations of ports using rivers as hinterland connections. River droughts have impacted navigation in various rivers worldwide, including the Rhine river where instances of low water levels in 2018 and 2022 caused disruptions in navigation. As a consequence, inland vessels...

To facilitate the energy transition, effective collaboration among all stakeholders is necessary. However, there is currently a lack of understanding regarding the impact of different components in the value chain on the energy system's overall structure and the final energy price. This knowledge gap poses a significant obstacle to cooperation...

The dredging industry is a contributor to the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions due to the energy-intensive process of dredging and transporting sediment. This industry has to reduce the GHG emissions due to future possible restricting regulations on GHG emissions. The dredging industry is shifting towards more environmentally friendly fuels, but...

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...
