In October 2023 congestion is issued in the HIC Rotterdam. As a result businesses can no longer establish, expand or electrify. A potential solution to free up grid capacity is that of an energy hub. This study evaluates future scenarios for the development of an industrial energy hub by utilising the EMA method. A study is done on the details...

Since the Industrial Revolution, fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, and natural gas have provided the vast majority of energy used by our globalising civilisation. The rapid growth in energy use in the past 250 years has led to increasing fossil fuel usage, which has been the primary driver behind the ongoing climate emergency. Policy measures in...

Portscapes are one of the most important hubs in the global economic system that facilitate the movement of goods and shape the socio-economic conditions of their surroundings. However, in times of climate change, they face unprec- edented challenges to completely transform their current ways of operating and fully reduce their contribution to a...

Alternative fuels can help the maritime shipping industry to lower its emissions. However, there are commercial risks that surround the adoption of these cleaner fuels. A book & claim based carbon insetting initiative could reduce these commercial risks and accelerate the decarbonization of the maritime shipping industry. Carbon insetting is...

The objective of this thesis is to enhance understanding of the behaviour of a flexible dolphin and its interaction with the surrounding soil in order to determine the optimal embedded depth. A comprehensive field test is conducted to gain deeper insights into the behaviour of the flexible dolphin and the soil surrounding the pile. The test...

Sedimentation is a common issue in navigating through channels, berths and anchorages of many ports and harbors. In order to address this issue, maintenance dredging can be done in three different ways; relocating of the sediments, keeping the sediments in place, or dredging with nature and using the natural currents to remove sediment. Trailing...

In advanced capitalist societies, nature has become more dependent on human influence. But some species are living in closer proximity than others. Including the Lesser Black-backed Gull. Throughout the 20th century, human activities have led to changes in the environment of this “synanthropic” species, a species living in close proximity to...

Quay walls are often designed with Finite Element models (FE models) to take into account the complex soil-structure interaction and highly non-linear soil behavior. However, the effect of temperature variations is uncertain if it is taken into account in the design of the quay walls at the Port of Rotterdam.<br/><br/>Nowadays, new quay walls...

Maritime logistics is important for the international volume of trade. Ports are critical in cargo transhipment and provide services to vessels like traffic management, piloting, towage and mooring, which together are called the Nautical Chain since these services are dependent on each other. Due to the importance of maritime logistics, it is...

In the transition towards climate neutrality by 2050 green hydrogen can contribute as a clean and widely applicable energy vector. However, domestic production by electrolysis in the Netherlands will not be able to produce enough hydrogen for the estimated demand. Import of hydrogen will thus be crucial. The Port of Rotterdam (PoR) will play a...

The Port of Rotterdam (PoR) is the largest port in Europe and in order to maintain its status, it would need to expand. For the expansion, an extensive survey of the subsurface is needed for the construction of new port areas and its geotechnical structures. As part of designing the geotechnical structures, the subsurface is often modelled as...

The Port of Rotterdam experiences large amounts of siltation from the upstream rivers in its basins and canals every year. Furthermore, container vessels increase in size every decade and therefore require a larger navigational depth. These two factors cause the yearly amount of dredged material to increase. Currently, mainly trailing suction...

Long waiting times in ports for inland vessels to load and unload containers are a serious problem. The European project NOVIMOVE researches the inefficiencies and suggests solutions. One of the solutions for reducing waiting times in ports is the placement of Modular Mobile Terminals (MMTs). The focus of the research will be on the ports of...

Steel is a widely used and very circular material, it can be recycled endlessly but that consumes a lot of energy, therefore, it is one of the most polluting industries in the world. Only 2% of this pollution is caused by production, the other 98% is caused by transportation during the production and recycling process. Half of the pollution...
