Offshore wind farms are increasing in size and moving further from shore. Service operation vessels (SOVs) are used for offshore wind operation and maintenance (O&M) at these large far offshore sites. These large vessels typically have a smaller daughter craft (DC) on board that can assist them. This DC is however too small to provide the...

This thesis presents a data-driven design approach for emission reduction using bunker delivery notes (BDNs) to help support the revised IMO strategy to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by international shipping close to 2050. This research supports the Horizon Europe’s Digital Twin for Green Shipping (DT4GS) project which focuses on...

The consequences of climate change are becoming more and more visible. A significant cause of this is CO2 emissions; the shipping sector is responsible for 3% of global CO2 emissions. As a result, the Fourth IMO GHG Study 2020 presents pathways to reduce the GHG emission of the shipping industry by 50% by 2050. Recent IMO goals have overtaken...

To achieve the emission goals set out by the International Maritime Organization in 2018. Low or zerocarbon fuels will have to be used. Ammonia is considered to be a possible candidate since it doesn’t contain carbon. This thesis will attempt to study two methods that characterize the closed-cylinder process of an internal combustion engine; the...

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...

Shipping companies aim to reach the climate goals by following the rules from the International Maritime Oranization (IMO), which includes reducing Scope 3 emissions. Maintenance is a great contributor to the Scope 3 emissions of a shipping company, especially the transportation of spare parts. The current state-of-the-art supply chain...

The maritime sector CO2 emissions are one of the contributors to the increase of the concentration of this gas in the Earth's atmosphere. One of the proposed solutions for reducing these emissions is the implementation of carbon capture technologies onboard vessels. Carbon capture technologies work on the principle of apprehending the carbon...

Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) have emerged as a promising technology for generating clean energy in deep water locations. Bluewater Energy Services proposes a Tension Leg Platform (TLP) as the floating support structure. An effective Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) system (of which there are various types) can facilitate timely...

International and local legislation on emission reduction urge the Dutch beam trawler fleet to reduce the use of fossil fuels. In 2015 the United Nations Paris Agreement was signed and as a result IMO and EU set the objective to reduce the GHG or CO2 emissions of the shipping industry. The Dutch beam trawler<br/>has been confronted with many...

The research objective of this thesis is to simulate the dynamic behaviour of a proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell system. The model will encompass the fuel cell stack and some simplified balance of plant components. It will focus on simulating the reactions of the cell and the system with regards to changes in the requested load.

Engineering has become more and more optimisation and simulation based. This causes an increase in the use of optimisation methods for complex problems. This thesis focuses on the implementation of a surrogate-assisted optimisation method for propeller optimisation, to design a better propeller in a shorter timespan. Therewith reducing both:...

In head seas, the offshore construction vessel Pioneering Spirit experiences wave amplification in the slot between its bows. Wave run-up results in a water jet at the closed end. To avoid potential damage of structures in the slot and improve operational safety, more insight into this phenomenon is needed. The aim of this research is to...

Surrogate modelling techniques such as Kriging are a popular means for cheaply emulating the response of expensive Computational Fluid Dynamics simulations. These surrogate models are often used for exploring a parameterised design space and identifying optimal designs. Multi-fidelity Kriging extends the methodology to incorporate data of...

Air emission reduction from the maritime industry is becoming pressing as massive global pollution regulations are in place. The design of new green transport vessels has to meet both financial and environmental requirements. The growing complexity of green transport vessels results in the research gap between current ship design methodologies...

Traditionally, the control point (CP) of a dynamically positioned vessel is located around its center of gravity (CoG). However, during offshore operations, other locations, such as the crane tip or gripper position, become more critical due to the load being located there. This thesis proposes shifting the control point from the CoG to an...

Strict regulations for carbon emissions from ships are introduced by the IMO and the EU. Various emission mitigation measures and low-emission fuel strategies provide solutions to reduce carbon emissions. This paper compares emission mitigation measures and low-emission fuel strategies for short-sea ships, within the constraints of regulatory...

There exists no general method for analysing the efficiency of a shipyard layout through the mapping of building processes and employee movements. Therefore an Integrated Method for mapping shipyard layouts is developed. This is done by implementing multiple ways of analysing and optimising industrial processes, as found in the literature. Usage...

With the increasing concerns of the emission of greenhouse gases and other pollutants and the push towards sustainable and greener means of transportation, there is a need for new drive systems running on alternative fuels. One fuel that holds significant potential as a marine fuel for the future is methanol. When produced utilising carbon...

Introduction - Hydrofoils are often used for high-performance craft. They enable the hull to rise out of the water and reduce drag. A recurring problem is ventilation, this is the presence of a cavity filled with ambient air on the lifting surface. Ventilation causes the lift of the hydrofoil to decrease drastically. A lot of research has been...

In the global energy transition where the shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy is needed, wind energy is a growing industry. In the offshore wind industry, Service Operation Vessels (SOVs) are needed to operate and maintain wind farms. To reduce the environmental footprint of SOVs at offshore wind farms, the possibility of battery...
