Mammoet is developing a new type of system for the transportation of offshore power cables. With this system the cables can be spooled, stored, and transported both on land and on heavy transport vessels in a more efficient way. There are a few uncertainties for the system, mainly about the loads on the carousel and the behavior of the cable...

Over the years the introduction of new Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software into the design process allowed engineers to significantly shorten the time necessary to produce finished designs. There seems to be an agreement that using CAE tools shortens the time of the design process and improves the quality of finished products. Although,...

Increasing global parcel shipping volumes and just-in-time delivery force distribution centers to handle increasingly larger volumes of greatly varying parcel types. Automated material handling systems are essential to achieve these challenging requirements. A push divert sorter is one of these systems. This system uses a series of sliding...

Maintenance of complex machines or assemblies is an essential part of machine-building companies. Besides building and designing machines, they are responsible for replacing components and restoring the machines to maintain good operational conditions. An optimal maintenance plan ensures that customers spend less on maintenance and remain...

Despite the technological improvements in the dredging industry in the last decades, there are components that have not been investigated accordingly. One of them is the bow coupling bend pipe which can be found on trailing suction hopper dredgers. In contrast to most pipelines, the specific bend pipe is not only a means of transport for the...

For years, ESI Eurosilo have successfully stored several, mostly low-density, non free-flowing bulk materials in their silo’s. Recently, demand has arisen whether bulk materials outside their current range could be stored using the same reclaim screw system. Unfortunately, the theory behind the screw dates from the 1980s and assumes fine...

As a result of the need for higher productivity ship-to-shore container cranes, seven concepts are composed that can simultaneously transfer 4 Twenty Foot Equivalent Unit containers. All concept can be built on a standard ship-to-shore crane structure. These concepts are based on working principles found in (patent) literature. The concepts are...

In this literature study the buckling of frames is investigated. Two frames are considered, where both consists of two columns and a girder. The first step was looking at the behavior of a single column under an compressive load. This results in so called effective lengths for different sets of boundary conditions on the column. Because in a...

Wind loads acting on STS cranes are an important design parameter to be taken into account when designing STS cranes. Current calculation standards such as the EN13001-2 overestimate wind forces. The goal of this research is to propose an improvement on current calculation standards. Wind tunnel tests were performed to assess the results of...

Bulk carriers load and unload large quantities of iron ore and coal at bulk terminals. The loading and unloading process on the EMO terminal is largely automated, but for the last 5% an excavator is used to remove material stuck on stairs and walls in the hold. This process takes many manhours, can be dangerous, and can cause damage. The...

The intermodal transportation transport is used to ship goods from A to B all over the world using different modes of transportation. The intermodal freight relies on the use of standardized containers for this transport. All empty containers need to be shipped back to the areas where there is a demand for empty containers. Since a standard...

Wind turbine industry is growing and future predictions are promising. However, a shortage of installation vessels could influence this growth in offshore wind industry. Commonly, wind turbines are installed in components using a jack-up vessel. Occasionally, wind turbines are installed fully assembled. The center of gravity of a fully assembled...

The share of container transhipment within the Port of Rotterdam increases over the years. A new concept for a transportation vehicle will extend the use of autonomous vehicles for the transhipment between different terminals. In order to avoid the high traffic density highway A15, this new vehicle will make use of amphibious capabilities in...

Coal silos are often used in areas where space is scarce, or because of environmental issues. Enclosed storage reduces the impact on the environment. If enclosed storage is used, different properties are important. The material characteristics can be split up in basic properties (moisture, angle of repose, etc.) and physical properties (shape,...

Within this research parcel behaviour over a bidirectional sorter is optimized to increase efficiency. Currently, influence of parcel properties on the sortation behaviour is unknown and equipment settings are set by experience rather than objective information. To gain insight in the behaviour first, a simulation model has been developed and...

Ship to shore (STS) cranes handle millions of containers every day. One of the latest products from Stinis is the Split-Headblock. This device allows its user to work in tandem operation in which up to two 20ft or four 40ft containers can be lifted at once. In order to further increase the performance, it is important that it can be accurately...

Erosion of the seabed around offshore structures, due to current and waves, is a common occurrence.<br/>Scour protection by rock placement can be done in order to limit erosion and its consequences. Tideway<br/>Offshore Solutions will use the multipurpose vessel ’Living Stone’ to execute such rock placement<br/>operations. Aboard the Living...

STS cranes (Ship-to-Shore cranes) are designed for a finite fatigue life, but it is often preferred by the terminal operators to keep the crane in operation once the design fatigue life has expired. When the crane is operated after it reached its expected service life, the risk of fatigue failure increases. Therefore the structural lifetime of...
