The lock of Hansweert, located in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands, serves as a crucial inland shipping node between the Western Scheldt estuary and the Rhine Delta. The outer harbour of the lock complex provides the connection to the Western Scheldt and accommodates waiting facilities for inland ships. The Western Scheldt is a vital...

Inland shipping is an efficient way of freight transportation, especially in the Province of South Holland (the Netherlands), but this sector faces a significant challenge in further reducing climate change effects and local health and environmental impacts caused by the combustion of diesel fuel.<br/><br/>In this study, an analysis of the...

Inland shipping is widely acknowledged as a sustainable mode of transportation due to its low energy consumption and emissions in comparison to road and rail transport. However, with growing concerns around reducing emissions in the transportation sector, there is pressure to address environmental issues associated with inland shipping. In the...

The river Waal is part of an economic important transport-corridor that connects the ports of Antwerp, Rotterdam and Amsterdam to Germany. Ongoing processes such as (1) climate change, (2) large scale river bed erosion and (3) up-scaling of vessels threaten the future navigability of the river. This will lead to massive economic damages as taken...

Implementing renewable energy generation and more sustainable consumption behaviour in the future inland shipping industry is necessary. Electrification of the inland shipping fleet leads to an increase in electrical energy demand on the consumption side. The generation of decentralized photovoltaic (PV) energy systems on board of general cargo...

The pressure to reduce emissions in the sector of inland shipping is increasing. Especially considering emissions of environmental pollutants, the increasing pressure gives rise to the question how to get insight into emissions distributions along an inland waterway network. In this research, a bottom-up method is developed that is able to map...

The CCNR will ensure that in 2050 inland ships do not emit any emissions. A PEM fuel cell system running on pure hydrogen could be a solution. However, the new system imposes some difficulties on the design of the inland ship. A calculation model is created to evaluate inland ships with this system and research these difficulties. The...

In this paper, we will study a typical problem in inland container shipping, concerning the barge transportation of maritime containers between a dry port and a set of seaport terminals. The barges depart from the dry port and visit a set of sea terminals, where containers need either to be dropped off or picked up. The goal is to achieve...

Prolonged periods of drought affect river discharges and cause water levels and available water depth to drop for extended periods of time. Low water depth has a major impact on the loading capacity of inland ships, and as a consequence on the transport capacity of the overall waterborne supply chain. Individual ship owners have detailed...

Currently, the inland shipping industry is not sufficiently incentivised to invest in sustainable technologies in order to reduce their emissions. The industry itself wants to be more sustainable, but there is insufficient financial room to invest in alternative technologies. Besides, public authorities try to achieve a reduction using command...

This research focused on improving a current traveltime estimation system called<br/>the Trajectplanner. This system simulates the movements of inland ships on a<br/>network model of the Dutch inland waterways in order to calculate and to<br/>estimate the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) for every ship that sails the inland<br/>waterways ...

Accurate resistance prediction for ships sailing in vertically restricted waterways is highly required to improve the design and operation for large ships entering harbors and for vessels navigating in inland waters. The methods derived from deep water may lead to large errors, and studies considering shallow water effects are needed. As most...

Small scale inland shipping, especially in the case of transported containers, is used only marginally compared to its capacity. The small inland waterways have abundant capacity to accommodate up to 700 percent more transport. On the other hand, road based container transport is cause for external damages in the form of congestion, emissions...

Mercurius Shipping Group invested in two container-crane vessels which are able to load and unload cargo to and from its holds. Due to their unique feature, the crane, failure of the vessels results in large financial consequences. Previous experience showed that these costs could be mitigated with easily/timely available spare-parts. The main...

This research is about the effects by climate change on the inland shipping sector of low discharges in the River Waal. Two different situations are investigated, one without any measure and one with canalization of the river. These two situations are compared with a zero variant where no navigation restrictions occur and therefore a so- called...

In the Netherlands a large variety exists in the used widths of inland port entrances. In addition, multiple entrance layouts are applied. Currently, guidelines are missing for the design of inland port entrances along flowing waters with flow velocities larger than 0.5 m/s. A more generic insight into the minimum required nautical safe entrance...

The suitability of the MoorMasterTM system by Cavotec MSL in inland shipping is researched. It is an innovative mooring system using vacuum pads with active motion control, utilising a PID controller. A case study of a 110m Large Rhine vessel moored directly beside the Amsterdam-Rijnkanaal (ARK) is performed. In order for the system to be...

Due to financial and environmental considerations there is a need to reduce the fuel consumption in the inland shipping sector. This can be realised by improving the hull design. This research focusses on the bow shape of inland ships. The bow shape with the lowest resistance is not by definition the best bow shape, since other factors such as...

The inland shipping industry could improve its environmental performance by applying environmental innovations. However, the industry is very diverse and there is a wide variety of technical, operational and logistical innovations. To find which innovations are most suitable for a fast-, cost- and effort effective adoption by the IWT industry,...
