The shipbuilding industry is not a standalone industry. It integrates with the shipping market, and therefore one characteristic of the shipbuilding industry is complexity. Competitiveness is a multi-dimensional concept that can be measured in numerous ways. The author found that these multi-dimensional concepts can better be translated into...

The global warming led to the development of the IMO strategy to reduce the emission of greenhouse gasses for international shipping. The increasing environmental regulation from both international and local governing bodies will ensure to limit accessibility to operational areas with current power plant configurations. These restrictions also...

Trim optimization is an approach considered by the industry to improve the energy efficiency of ships, having a potential in both reducing operational costs and to decrease the emissions of the ship. Potential fuel consumption reduction by trim optimization is 0.5 to 3 % and to up to 7% in extreme cases. Stolt Tankers, a shipping company active...

Traceability in complex ship design involves keeping track of the evolving relations between need, requirements and design. Such traceability is not fully developed in the current design process at DMO due to divisions in the design process and between design tools. This thesis proposes to use a single information model to facilitate...

During the start of a project organisations make estimation on the expected amount of work and the corresponding project duration, the lead time. To make these estimations with a low uncertainty is important because a false estimation could result in cost overruns and project delay. This paper proposes an estimation and planning maturity...

The supply for luxury yachts is growing which increases the competition between yachtbuilders. Additionally to lead time reduction, yachtbuilders are trying to maximise their output with the available space. This puts extra pressure on the logistics process. Waste in the logistics process reduces the efficiency and for that must be avoided. The...

This thesis presents a methodology to improve the effectiveness of a ship design process. This methodology consists of performing systems engineering by means of a tailored framework and subsequent guideline. The first is a tool for designers to identify and define operational objectives and functional requirements of (sub)systems, to make...

After years of using fossil fuel, the transition to renewable energy sources need to be made to limit the increase in temperature and to support the future energy demand. To support and speed up the transition phase from fossil fuels to renewables it is necessary to decrease the costs. Offshore Wind Turbines are widely used for the production of...

The need for advanced ship propulsion control systems is constantly increasing as the demand for high vessel performance is growing at the same time. Speed trials are considered as an operation during which the vessel has to achieve the highest performance by attaining the agreed maximum ship speed. However, sometimes vessels have to sail in...

A strategy is necessary to improve the assembly process of super yachts. Literature on improvement methodologies from different industries suggest that a reduction of system complexity can lead to a more efficient assembly process. A less complex system in terms of assemblability can be achieved by modularization of these systems. Literature...

The formation of NOx in diesel engines is heavily influenced by the amount of available oxygen and the combustion temperature. This thesis investigates the effects of the implementation of exhaust gas recirculation on the NOx emissions of a 4-stroke marine diesel engine. With EGR implemented a part of the fresh intake air is replaced by exhaust...

When your dream yacht is being built at Feadship, the process starts with a blank page. This early stage is defined as the Sales phase. In consultation with a designer, the look and the feel of a yacht is easily captured. The expertise of the designer will lead to a yacht fitting the vision of the client. In the current process, the lines drawn...

An improvement study to the pre-processing process of Damen Shipyards Galati (DSGa) is performed since benchmark analysis shows that the current pre-processing process underperforms, compared to industry peers. The objective is to increase DSGa’s throughput and decrease space utilisation, such that pre-processing facilities S1 and S1a can be...

Emission regulations applied to marine industry for amongst others the propulsion system of a vessel are becoming stricter due to governmental <br/>agreements to lower the greenhouse gas emissions. Engine manufactures<br/>are enhancing their engine designs to reduce the engine fuel consumption, which is commonly done by implementing a...

The goal of this thesis has been to develop a concept exploration tool for zero-emission double ended ferries, that determines the feasibility of different energy systems, creates corresponding design parameters and helps decide between zero-emission energy types. <br/><br/>The research goal was achieved in three steps. Firstly, knowledge was...

In this thesis the differences between the monohull and semi-submersible are investigated. For a general heavy lift crane operation and its operational profile, the difference is performance and total cost are calculated. These are used to determine the turning point, the point where the semi-submersible is more favourable for a heavy lift crane...

Topology Optimization is an optimization problem based on the distribution of material within a design domain under specific load states. The goal of this technology is minimizing a certain function, such as compliance, mass or frequency. <br/>This technology can improve the performance of components in different fields within the shipbuilding...

The laws and regulations regarding the radiated noise and the on-board noise of the ship are expected to be stricter in the future. There is a big concern in this field, especially for the underwater noise. The radiated noise from the ship is harming the life of the underwater mammals while the on-board noise is threatening the health of the on...

The time a naval combatant can be deployed for a mission is limited by its dependency on supplies. At a certain point the ship needs to leave the area of operations to be replenished in a harbour or by a support ship. Moreover, the Royal Netherlands Navy has a societal obligation to reduce its environmental impact, in particular on global...
