To respond to the growing offshore industry Jumbo Maritime has designed a new vessel to expand its offshore fleet: The Stella Synergy. The vessel will be able to install monopiles for the offshore wind and oil and gas industry. The main objective of this thesis is: Making a model that is able to predict the motions of the vessel as well as the...

The international maritime sector accounts for about 2% of all global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the main greenhouse gas that causes global warming. Nations meeting at the United Nations International Maritime Organization (IMO) in London have proposed an initial strategy for the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from ships,...

The offshore wind industry has grown rapidly over the last decade and drivetrains are increasing in size to reduce the cost of energy. These turbines are operating in a harsh environment. Adopting a preventive maintenance strategy is important to achieve an as high as possible availability of the farm and reduce the cost of maintenance. A well...

The diversity of offshore structures is increasing nowadays, as more and more offshore structures are floating. To study the opportunity for Ampelmann to expand to the floating market it is necessary to see if working with floating structures requires a new way of operating. A potential market for Ampelmann is transferring maintenance personnel...

Already since the start of civilisation dredging is carried out to create and maintain waterways and ports or to create new land. In recent times the scale of dredging and awareness of potential environmental impact of dredging have increased drastically. An often used dredging vessel is the trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD). A TSHD pumps...

CSD spillage is defined as “any soil that is dislodged above the lowest cutter tip trajectory of a single swing, but is not sucked into the suction pipe”. In addition to higher energy consumption and material wear for delivering the targeted depth, spillage can lead to a variety of environmental issues. As of yet, no analytical model exists in...

Rock cutting is a challenging process. Heavy equipment, large cutting forces, high wear rates and large amounts of required energy are common challenges when cutting rock. Traditionally, rock cutting is based on a linear motion of the cutting tool. However, a significant improvement on the cutting performance is expected when using non-linear...

Fatigue failure is a governing limit state for marine structures. Marine structures are composed of the numerous structural members connected by the welded joints which are the typically governing fatigue sensitive locations. In this thesis, attention has been paid to...

Offshore operations are increasingly executed by vessels operating on dynamic positioning (DP) due to advantages it has for short operations, such as maintenance and crew transfer but also for track keeping operations and projects in deeper water. Currently, DP capability plots are used to indicate whether an operation can be performed, but this...

Understanding the erosion process of sand will help improve dredging projects. Pickup functions are used to predict the amount of sand that can be eroded by a flow with certain parameters. The most common functions that are used have been validated to data in the low velocity regime (θ < 1). However, modern day dredging processes are in the...

It is well known that for tall cylindrical structures under wind action, such as wind turbine towers, vortex induced vibrations (VIV) may occur. During the installation of offshore wind turbine towers there are different stages of transport where we might deal with VIV. The main objective of this thesis is to explore the possibility of modeling...

Vortex-induced vibration or as well-known as VIV is a phenomenon that has caught the attention of engineers along history. VIV is related to many engineering fields. In the offshore industry, it is of importance for risers that extract oil from the subsoil, and tethered anchors for floating units.
The main aim of the thesis is to model the...

Offshore oil and gas projects usually require the presence of more than one facilities in the same location. These facilities need to be connected with each other in order to enable the transfer of personnel among each other. As a result, bridges are implemented for such purposes with their ends being positioned at extensions of the two...

In the last century, the offshore industry has installed a network of offshore pipelines in the southern North Sea. Due to decreasing oil and gas extraction in the North Sea, many pipelines of this network are becoming redundant. A potential option for the reuse of these pipelines is the transport and storage of gaseous hydrogen, which is...

With increasing evidence of human-induced accelerated climate change, the need of sustainable, non-polluting, energy sources becomes evident. Offshore wind generated electricity is currently one of the most promising sources of energy to create a sustainable global energy mix. The offshore wind industry has developed rapidly over the last years....

In a world where the awareness of global warming and climate change increases, the shift towards sustainable energy is essential. In the upcoming years, an increasing number of offshore wind farms is expected. Over the past years, all the 'best spots' are taken and the new locations in tougher soil conditions or even rock have to be overcome....

In the last two decades, the global economy and population have been growing steadily. Due to these global trends the demand for dredging, trenching and deep sea mining activities have grown dramatically. In these engineering practices, underwater excavation is one of the major procedures which involves complicated physics. In dredging,...

Fixed support structures for offshore wind turbines are commonly used for shallow water (till 45 meters). In many countries shallow-waters are rare. Floating support structures may be the solution for these areas. Many concepts have been developed but three concepts have been analyzed (spar, semi-submergible and the tension leg platform (TLP))...
