This study examines the effect of adding helical piles to the foundation mechanism of monopile installation templates. A monopile installation template is a gravity-based structure, which is placed on the seabed. The installation template is utilised for the installation of monopiles, and to ensure its verticality during this installation. At...

A monopile installation project consists of the whole process of loading monopiles to vessels, transporting monopiles to the wind farm and drilling monopiles in the seabed. Each installation project has different characteristics as the weather at the installation location, the distances to the suppliers and the vessels that are available differ...

One of the biggest challenges of the century is the fight against global warming. In all sectors people are doing their best to reduce their carbon footprints and their impact on the environment. In the energy sector this is done by making use of renewable energy sources (RES), such as wind turbines, instead of fossil fuels. This transition to...

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...

At the end of 2019, the European Union (EU) put forward the European Green Deal to facilitate the technological progress necessary to achieve CO2-neutrality by 2050. Such a monumental achievement would require massive investments in infrastructure for the harvesting, storage and the transnational transportation of green energy. To date, the more...

Hageman, Evelien (author)
Over 5000 offshore wind turbine generators have been installed in the past decades. 80% of these wind turbines have a monopile foundation. Monopiles are hollow steel tubular piles with a diameter of up to 10m. The first phase of the monopile installation consists of the self-weight penetration into the seabed due to the mass of the monopile....

The need for sustainable solutions in the energy sector has led to the rapid increase of offshore windfarms around the globe. The areas with ideal soil conditions are gradually being occupied, pushing the offshore wind industry to search for methods of installing wind turbines in hard terrain. So far, the installation of monopiles in weak rock,...

Pile tip damage due to impact with an object (boulder) during the driving process of monopiles is of main concern in the offshore wind sector. Numerical modelling could accurately describe this failure mechanism and used as a tool in practice but also for the development of appropriate guidelines. In this research project, dynamic Finite Element...

Due to the ever increasing demand of energy and the urgency in which this has to be produced using renewable energy resources the request for offshore wind farms is larger than ever. As a result of the competitive nature of the energy sector it is important to keep the cost of energy low in order to keep an edge over the competition. Therefore,...

To increase the benefit of wind energy, the next generation wind turbines are becoming larger and are moving into deeper waters. This significantly increases the size and weight of the corresponding monopile support structures. In current practice, the majority of monopiles are installed using jack-ups or floating vessels using so-called...

Offshore wind energy is one of the solutions to meet the growing demand for renewable energy. The offshore wind turbines producing this energy keep increasing in size and, as a result, the monopile foundations are becoming larger and heavier. The traditional jack-up installation vessels have limited crane capacity and many of these vessels are...

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...

Offshore wind farms are moving to deeper waters, implying that larger substructures will need to be installed. The monopile is the leading substructure nowadays and this structure could be promising for use in deeper waters as well. Generally, jack-up vessels are used for the installation of the substructures and turbines. However, the jacking...

Offshore wind turbines are growing significantly to become a cost-effective alternative for the offshore oil and gas market. This causes rapid growth of offshore wind turbine foundations (monopiles). Currently, monopiles are installed using jack-up vessels like Aeolus. However operations will be limited by crane capacity and its cost...
