Current service and installation activities for offshore wind turbines are carried out by jack-up vessels, which eliminate wave disturbances to a large extent. The use of these vessels imposes several disadvantages, including high operational costs and the limitation of operating in restricted water depths. An alternative is a crane mounted on a...

With space constraints onshore, strong renewable resources available far offshore<br/>and growing green hydrogen demand, far offshore green hydrogen production<br/>may be an attractive option. To assess this potential, a literature review was<br/>conducted to identify the relevant technologies to be considered and suitable<br/>modelling methods....

Steel is a widely used material in construction because of its availability, high strength-to-weight ratio, and recyclability. However, steel manufacturing consumes a lot of energy, and there is an increasing demand for more environmentally friendly building materials. Consequently, high-strength steel is becoming more popular as it reduces the...

The objective of this study is to generate insights into the application of the reliability of a W2H system and its impact on the techno-economic performance. This involves examining the case of a single system to analyse on a micro-level the underlying conditions affecting performance, as well as exploring W2H farms to observe performance and...

The growing global energy demand increases the need for renewable energy sources. This increase requires land to be occupied, competing with other activities such as agriculture and residency. In such a situation, renewable energy sources expand to other environments like the ocean. However, this new scene poses some challenges, such as the...

The native European flat oyster (Ostrea edulis) is an ecosystem engineer providing important ecosystem services, but became nearly extinct from the North Sea due to diseases and overfishing. There's a growing interest to restore these oyster reefs for their valuable contribution in re-establishing a rich ecosystem in the North Sea. In order...

Due to increasing environmental concerns and global energy demand, the development of Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) is on the rise. FOWTs offer a promising solution to expand wind farm deployment into deeper waters with abundant wind resources. However, their harsh operating conditions and lower maturity level compared to fixed...

A modeling approach to simulate ice-induced vibrations of vertically sided offshore structures in ice tank experiments is presented. The technique combines replica modeling with the preservation of kinematics during ice-structure interaction. The technique was chosen based on the theoretical understanding that ice-induced vibrations are...

Current offshore wind turbine installation and positioning methods require mechanical equipment attached on the lifted components and human intervention. The present paper studies the development of a contactless motion compensation technique by investigating a magnetically controlled pendulum. The technique involves the interaction of a...

Monopiles are the most common Offshore Wind Turbine (OWT) foundations due to their simplicity in design, fabrication, and installation. However, large new-generation turbines have led to significant changes in monopile dimensions, necessitating extensive finite element analyses and ground investigations to meet design requirements. While Cone...

This research investigates the dynamic response of offshore wind turbine (OWT) systems subject to ice-structure-soil interaction (ISSI). To simulate the behavior of level ice sheets, a coupled approach involving the cohesive element method (CEM) and the finite element method (FEM) is applied. For soil-structure interaction (SSI), the Mohr...

Offshore wind energy can play a key role in the energy transition. Reducing installation costs for offshore wind installation projects helps to be cost-competitive with other renewable energy technologies. Installation costs can increase when the installation project planning is delayed. Literature shows that offshore wind installation projects...

As part of the Dutch government’s ambitions to realise significant offshore wind energy capacity (70 gigawatts (GW) by 2050), the Port of Rotterdam is to become a hydrogen hub for North-Western Europe. To achieve this, it is expected that around 20 megatonnes (Mt) of hydrogen could be throughput in the Port of Rotterdam, out of which 2 Mt will...

One of the key challenges for offshore pipeline installation are free spans, which are sections not supported by the seabed. Within these sections the stress in the pipeline is increased due to local buckling which is caused by high bending moments at free span shoulders and midspan. Additionally, hydrodynamic loading due to currents and waves,...

Floating offshore wind turbines (FOWTs) unlock the potential to harness energy from wind in deeper waters. Despite their potential, the major obstacle to large-scale commercial deployment remains the floating substructure's high cost. Multidisciplinary design, analysis and optimisation techniques are commonly employed to improve their cost...

An important trend exhibited by the offshore wind market is the increase in the size of wind turbines, leading to longer and stiffer monopiles with larger diameter-to-thickness ratios. Current transport analysis is focused on loads resulting from hydrodynamic accelerations, without taking loads into account resulting from differences in bending...

This master’s thesis explores an alternative approach to enhance the emission performance and energy efficiency of offshore installation vessels without expensive retrofits. The concept involves employing swappable energy containers, currently used for inland cargo and tug vessels, for offshore installation vessels. These containers are filled...

Modelling of Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) is challenging due to the strong coupling between the aerodynamics of the turbine and the hydrodynamics of the floating structure, which makes the dynamic response of the whole system highly complex. A variety of numerical approaches can be used to predict this response.<br/><br/>The frequency...

Offshore bidding zones will eventually result in lower revenues for offshore wind farm owners due to a lower electricity volume and price risk, especially when flow-based market coupling and advanced hybrid coupling are implemented in the electricity system. This results in a demand to improve the investment climate for offshore wind farm owners...
