Opstal, Anton (author)
The yachting industry is embracing sustainable practices in response to global environmental concerns, particularly those outlined in the Paris Agreement, which aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit global temperature increases. Although diesel engines are most commonly used in yachts and are a major contributor to greenhouse gas...

Nuclear energy has found widespread application in navies across the globe. This thesis explores the potential integration of generation IV (very) Small Modular Reactor (SMR) technology for future surface combatants, focusing on the Very High-Temperature Reactor modelled as vSMR and a Molten Salt Reactor as SMR. The design impact of using...

The development of the global COVID-19 pandemic from 2020 onward has had significant impact on the world and specifically the maritime industry. Striking examples were COVID-19 outbreaks onboard the Diamond Princess cruise vessel and the U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier at the start of the pandemic. Contagious disease management...

The offshore wind energy sector is rapidly growing with an increase in the capacity of offshore wind turbines, resulting in increasing dimensions of offshore wind turbines and their foundations. Additionally, there is a tendency to locate offshore wind farms more offshore because of more consistent wind speeds and more space. Sites with a water...

New methods of ship propulsion are required to meet the targets for reducing global emissions of greenhouse gases. Hydrogen-powered fuel cells can be used to greatly reduce emissions, facilitating renewable shipping. Fuel cell durability is recognised as a large barrier to widespread fuel cell application. The goal of this graduation project is...

The Jones Act, limited US port facilities, and absence of Jones Act-compliant installation vessels pose significant challenges for offshore wind farm installations. These factors force contractors to explore new installation strategies, such as feedering. Feedering is an installation strategy where the wind turbine installation vessel remains...

Ensuring sustainability in shipping extends beyond fuel choices to encompass the responsible use of materials in vessel construction and maintenance. Shifting from the prevailing 'take-make-dispose' model to a circular economy is crucial for enhancing sustainable waste reduction in the industry. Unlike consumer goods, current ship design...

In response to the leading narrative of increasing sustainability in the yachting sector, a research collaboration is started between the Delft University of Technology and Dykstra Naval Architects to examine the potential use of hydro generation on board sailing superyachts. By harvesting energy from the water flow when under sail, diesel...

de Ridder, Jesse (author)
The offshore wind market is rapidly growing, resulting in increasing wind turbine sizes, increasing distances to port, and a shift to deeper waters. A literature study in this thesis shows that existing wind turbine installation vessels, vessels under construction, and innovative concepts will not be able to install next-generation turbines or...

There is uncertainty as to whether the stability criteria in the Dutch regulatory framework for commercial cruising vessels are safe and obtainable for the current Dutch commercial sailing fleet. Therefore, this paper aims to determine a suitable set of intact stability requirements for monohull sailing vessels operating under the Dutch flag,...

The maritime industry faces a lot of uncertainty, and the energy transition has only increased this uncertainty. Ships will probably have to be converted to an alternative fuel during their lifetime and methanol seems to be the fuel with the most potential for offshore ships. By preparing for this, Design-for-Conversion to methanol, the costs of...

The accessibility in far offshore wind farms during unplanned maintenance is reported to be insufficient. This system largely consists of daughter craft, small vessels that increase the multitasking capabilities of an SOV. The goal of this research is to improve the accessibility to ultimately increase turbine availability, which is proven in...

This research examines the difference between two major component replacement strategies for the novel floating offshore wind turbines (FOWT), in terms of support vessel CO2eq emission and cost together with FOWT downtime. The first strategy is utilising a crane vessel to replace a component in offshore, this is called the heavy lift maintenance...

Internal combustion engine (ICE) emissions cause numerous social, environmental, health, and economic issues, including extreme weather or harm to public health. These effects are also experienced in the Chinese Pearl River Delta, where a high-speed, 200-passenger ferry named the Coastal Cruiser 200 (CC-200) uses ICEs to operate. The CC-200's...

Maritime transport represents one of the main means of product delivery and passenger transportation across the world but its impact on climate change has positioned it among the world's biggest CO2 pollutants. One of the most impacted regions in the world by maritime transport emissions is the South Pacific Region. Studies show that if climate...

Urgent action is needed to decrease maritime emissions. The renewable wind energy sector must also decrease its life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Total GHG emissions from offshore wind turbines are approximately 120% more compared to onshore wind turbines. Moreover, it is estimated that Walk to Work (W2W) vessels are responsible for 3.3...

As the world is shifting towards a more sustainable economy, regulation could be implemented to reduce emission from the chemical shipping industry. Confronted by regulation, it is important for shipowners to be able to select the most promising measure or alternative fuel for their specific operations and vessel to comply with such regulation....
