Climate change due to greenhouse gas emissions is prompting the IMO to reduce emissions by 80% by 2050. This thesis focuses on designing modular propulsion systems for mid-speed sailing vessels to meet these regulations. It designs a framework to generate and swiftly evaluate propulsion system designs on the basis of five performance indicators:...

In the yachting decarbonisation by 2030, multiple fuels usage provides flexibility to ocean-crossing superyachts in a scenario where alternative fuels become progressively available worldwide. Hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) and methanol (MeOH) are selected among all sustainable fuels. The desired flexibility can be achieved with a multi-fuel...

This graduation thesis studies the CI combustion of ammonia and hydrogen in an ICE. It contains a review of the literature and a modeling study of the ignition and cylinder performance of the AmmoniaDrive test engine. AmmoniaDrive is a NWO-funded research project that aims to decarbonize shipping by introducing an ammonia-fuelled SOFC-ICE power...

The urgent need for marine transportation to reduce CO2 emissions has led to considering alternative energy and storage sources. The resulting increase in the complexity of powerplant architectures led to the development of advanced control strategies to achieve energy savings. At the same time, the health status of components has been often...

In order to meet the shipping industry's emissions reduction goals, it is imperative to explore and adopt alternative marine fuels. Methanol (or methyl alcohol) is expected to play a large role in the future. However, current regulations limit the attractiveness of methanol as marine fuel due to the inability to use the space around a venting...

This paper provides an initial feasibility study of the potential installation of iron powder energy generation systems aboard a marine service vessel. After a short introduction as to the relevance of this study, the state-of-the-art iron powder energy generation is investigated. This information is then used to decide which marine service...

Chemicals within a chemical tanker need heating to keep the cargo above a desired temperature. This research focuses on the prediction of the fuel consumption used to heat the cargo. There are three methods discussed in this research: a physics-based model (PBM), a data-driven model (DDM) and a hybrid model (HM). The PBM is a model based on the...

The maritime sector is actively investigating new solutions for zero emissions in<br/>response to climate change. One of the promising options is hydrogen-based propulsion, but there are currently no prescriptive rules or legislation to approve the design of such innovative, unproven technology. The International Maritime Organization (IMO)...

As a big contributor to the the global emissions, the maritime sector strives to bring down its greenhouse gasses and hazardous emissions by enforcing increasing strict rules on the exhaust gasses. This gives major challenges to the maritime sector to develop greener modes of transportation. This report investigates the in-cylinder starting...

A significant decrease in greenhouse gas emissions can be achieved by including a prediction of future power consumption in the control of ships’ power plants during transits. Moreover, including a prediction of power consumption in the Energy Management System (EMS) during Dynamic Positioning (DP) operations can also contribute to a reduction...

The maritime sector faces major challenges to reduce its impact on global warming. The use of methanol as a fuel alternative is considered one of the more promising options to be implemented in a relatively short to medium time frame; based on the potential availability, emission reduction, energy density, potential to be synthetically produced,...

The increasing concerns over the impacts of the maritime industry on the environment over the last decades has led to the creation of regulations to combat these negatives effects by the International Maritime Organization. Within the yachting industry, there is no consensus on whether these regulations can be fairly applied to yachts and there...

A major transition became necessary for the maritime industry to meet the IMO’s targets for mitigating the carbon footprint of the sector by at least 50% by 2050. One of the promising methods to lower the emissions is the ship's hybridization. An enormous increase in pilot and demonstration projects for that purpose is being observed. This...

Due to the expected increase in coastal replenishment along the Dutch coastline, and the need to decrease pollutant emissions in the Netherlands and worldwide, the Autonomous Low Energy Replenishment Dredger (ALERD) is developed. The ALERD is a sustainable and cost-effective solution to perform coastal replenishment work along the Dutch...

Nuclear power is currently not a commonly used option in commercial marine applications, despite its potential for significant emission reductions. This thesis is an overview of what has been done before, and what the potential is of modern marine nuclear power applications considering the long-term goals of harmful emission reduction in the...

Superyachts are expected to be perfect since the owner pays millions for them, and the worst that could happen is tilting the ship once it floats. The lightweight, including the center of gravity, is essential to know with a high degree of certainty to prevent this. However, the lightweight is already expected in an early design phase, when...

This research was performed with the goal of giving insight if the Rijksrederij is able to operate part of their fleet on renewable methanol and fuel cells, in order to work towards their goal of operating with net zero CO2 emissions by 2030. This prompted a research question that focussed on both the renewable methanol supply and the technical...

The design space of power plants of naval surface vessels is ever expanding. As a result, the design space has become too large for a human design team to fully explore. Therefore, a concept exploration tool is introduced to generate and evaluate all possible concepts within the design space. An optimal solution is chosen based on ship...
