Offshore Floating Wind Energy (OFWE) presents a promising yet underdeveloped sector due to its higher costs and engineering complexities compared to fixed-bottom systems. Unlike fixed-bottom systems, OFWE isn't restricted by water depth, offering over four times more ocean area for deployment. This flexibility allows for positioning wind farms...

Steel is a widely used material in construction because of its availability, high strength-to-weight ratio, and recyclability. However, steel manufacturing consumes a lot of energy, and there is an increasing demand for more environmentally friendly building materials. Consequently, high-strength steel is becoming more popular as it reduces the...

This study examines the effect of adding helical piles to the foundation mechanism of monopile installation templates. A monopile installation template is a gravity-based structure, which is placed on the seabed. The installation template is utilised for the installation of monopiles, and to ensure its verticality during this installation. At...

Methane pyrolysis is a technology that has the potential to greatly reduce the CO2 emissions of hydrogen production on a large scale. The process generates solid carbon instead of gaseous, thereby inhibiting emissions and has a relatively low process energy demand.<br/><br/>A three-step approach was taken to investigate the feasibility of...

In this thesis, an automated buckling check method has been developed and validated for thin plated stiffened structures used in stressed skin topsides.<br/><br/>Thin plated stiffened structures are widely used in, for example, aircraft, bridges and ships. Recently, it has become competitive to use this type of construction to offshore topsides...

Wind energy has seen a transition from onshore to offshore in the last decades. The lack of space on land and up-scaling of turbine sizes led to the need of exploiting further away and harsher environments, where more space is available and there is arguably less of an impact on society. This together with a higher supply of wind resources has...

A large number of light, modular topsides in the southern North Sea is planned to be removed in the near future. Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) is currently not the most competitive in this market as smaller contractors can often provide cheaper removal solutions with the use of smaller heavy lift vessels. HMC therefore aims to find a more...
