The international maritime sector accounts for about 2% of all global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the main greenhouse gas that causes global warming. Nations meeting at the United Nations International Maritime Organization (IMO) in London have proposed an initial strategy for the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from ships,...

Demand for air traffic is growing worldwide. In order to accommodate this growth, existing infrastructure such as gates should be used more efficiently. One technique to increase gate utilization is by introducing gate pit-stops. Introducing gate pit-stops leads to additional towing movements which can potentially interfere with other traffic on...

Operational towing is a taxiing strategy to reduce the fuel consumption during the taxiing phase of a flight, which decreases the cost and environmental impact of taxiing. Currently, no operational electric towing systems are available that are fully electric, independent from the APU and are capable of towing both narrow- and wide-bodied...

In the early 00 of this century, Keuning et al. (2007) looked into the hydrodynamic forces on the rudder and the influence of the hull and keel on these forces. Among others, they have assessed the lift and drag forces on the rudder. One of the outcomes of this study was an asymmetric lift curve; for negative rudder angles the rudder seems to...

Dykstra Naval Architects are regularly designing large classic sailing yachts or motor-sailors, of which the draft is an important design restriction.The sailing performance is increased by adding lift-generating appendages,without increasing the draft. An example is a retractable centre board, havinga big influence on the sailing properties....

With the decrease in sensor and actuator costs decentralized control strategies have become increasingly attractive, aiming to use multiple simpler robots for achieving a global objective. The problem of reaching the global objective generally results in a consensus problem requiring communication amongst the agents. The cooperative manipulation...

Long distance ocean towing is a commonly used transportation method in the oil & gas and renewable energy industries. Barges with cargo, vessels and various offshore structures are towed from and to location. Boskalis participates in this industry through its subsidiaries Smit and Fairmount Marine. From experience with these transports, it...

With fuel oil the main driver for operational expenses, increasingly stringent regulations on emissions of ships and a growing environmental awareness throughout the industry, the concept of Wind-Assisted Ship Propulsion (WASP) presents itself as a means to reduce fuel consumption. Though a promising concept, the performance prediction of a wind...

For over a century, model tests have supported in ship and offshore structures design. Experimental results can be used to (1) validate theory to apply numerical simulations in the design and (2) for design by testing, directly using the (scaled) results in the design. Recently, at the Ship Hydromechanics and Structures lab of the TU Delft, a...

User research validated the need for a compact, pedestrian operated electric tow tractor that is able to pull and push a wide variety of loads on wheels, such as roll containers, shopping trolleys and industry trolleys, in order to relieve the end-user’s physical effort. The main product drivers were related to the size of the Multi Mover-S (MM...

In 2006 the Thule Group acquired the Dutch company Brink Bv. A leading player in the European towing industry. In 2008 the brand Brink was replaced by the Thule Group's core brand; Thule. Since then several incremental changes have been implemented to align products and communication with the Thule brand. Since, many entities are left unchanged...

Het wordt steeds moeilijker voor een tunnelproject een locatie te vinden voor het bouwdok voor de tunnelelementen. Het is daarom aantrekkelijk een bestaand bouwdok te gebruiken en de tunnelelementen over langere afstand te vervoeren, desnoods over zee. Om het transport van een tunnelelement over zee te bewerkstelligen zijn een aantal facetten...
