Due to the rapidly growing offshore wind market, there is a high demand for capable wind turbine installation vessels. Current wind turbine installation vessels struggle with the installation of large diameter monopiles due to a lack of crane capacity and with the installation of wind turbine components at hub height due to a lack of crane...

Heerema Marine Contractors is assigned to execute the installation of 64 monopiles for the He Dreiht Offshore Wind Farm provided by Energie Baden-Württemberg (EnBW). The installation of the monopiles is done by means of a template structure. This template is specifically designed for this project and is installed on the seabed temporarily. The...

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...

The penetration of the renewable energy sources in the global market has been constantly growing over the last years. This trend is expected to accelerate even more in the future due to the improving technologies, the economies of scale, the competitive supply chains and the improving developer experience. The main challenge for a faster and...

Changing the way of power production on a Floating, Production, Storage, and Offloading (FPSO)<br/>system by using renewable power can contribute to reducing an FPSO’s carbon footprint while operating. Bluewater Energy Services is interested in the use of a wind turbine placed on top of an<br/>FPSO, to power the FPSO’s internal electricity grid....

Why do engineers often design what people don't want? And why do people often want solutions that are not feasible? This is because the current design and decision support optimisation methodologies are one-sided and ignore or fail to capture the dynamic interaction between people's preferences (desirability) and technical assets' performance ...

All over the world, many offshore structures have been built in the last decades, both by the oil and gas industry and by the renewable industry. When these structures reach their end of life, they have to be removed. The removal is done in decommissioning projects. Many of those offshore structures are bottom founded. Of that amount, a big part...

Bipolar half plates (BPPs) are important parts of Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) hydrogen fuel cells. Metallic BPPs are generally produced by stamping or hydro forming. However, these processes are not continuous and relatively slow compared to rotary forming. Rotary forming is a continuous process and could potentially be a faster BPP...

To fulfil the ever-increasing need for wind energy, European offshore wind farm sites are selected in deeper waters with seabed conditions which can consist of hard consolidated sediments or even rock. The deeper sites require the use of floating wind turbine foundations that are moored off to anchor piles in the seabed. For rock seabed sites,...

Due to urbanization, improved living standards and electrification, approximately five times more raw minerals are necessary in 2050 compared to 2018. In deep oceans, the seafloor contains these minerals in the form of polymetallic nodules. Nodules are about the size of golf balls that grow throughout the ocean at depths between 3500 m and 6000...

The offshore wind sector in Europe has grown significantly over the past 20 years. Following this surge in number of installations, the first generation of turbines is reaching its end-of-life (EOL) phase and thought needs to be put into end-of-life strategies. As the market for lifetime extension is still in its infancy and...

In this 3D fracture-based topology optimization framework, the author extended the 2D framework on tailoring fracture resistance for brittle materials (Zhang et al., 2022) to 3D. In the optimization, the topology is described by radial basis functions interpolated level set function, and the problem is solved by the Interface-enriched...

The Arctic is warming more rapidly than other latitudes, which can result in the release of additional greenhouse gasses, global sea level rise and increase in extreme weather events. Additionally, this causes the rapid decline of sea ice and an ice free Arctic might occur during the summer in the 2040s. The decreasing sea...

Subsea rock installation is a process in offshore engineering where rocks are placed on the seabed or subsea structures using a fallpipe. An example of a subsea structure could be a cable or pipeline that must be protected. In this research, the main scope is rock installation for scour protection of the foundation of offshore wind turbines. As...

Tidal energy has the potential to be an important and necessary addition to the available sources of energy in the coming energy transition. While there is an extensive body of research on the topic of high tidal resource locations, little research exists on low tidal resource locations such as The Netherlands. The thesis aims to reduce this gap...

The increasing popularity of offshore wind as a result of the demand for renewable energy, forces the industry to consider the development of wind farms in sub-arctic areas. One of these areas is the Baltic Sea, where the potential for wind energy is very large, but which is also prone to the occurrence of ice. For the design of offshore...

Operational optimization of vessels is valuable for the planning and execution of maritime operations. Accurate and efficient models to predict vessel motions are needed to make reliable operational decisions. The wave-induced vessel response can be modelled in terms of a Response Amplitude Operator (RAO) and a wave spectrum. Uncertainties...

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...
