Wind energy from the North Sea is one of the solutions to achieve the climate goals of the Paris agreement. The Dogger Bank, a North Sea sandbank, has a lot of potential for wind energy due to the relatively shallow location and good wind conditions. An artificial island creates even more opportunities, because alternating energy can be...

The European energy system is significantly changing to restrict the rise in global average warming. There is a shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources, which resulted in an exponential growth of offshore wind energy capacity in the North Sea. However, the North Sea is already one of the most intensively used sea basins in the world...

The climate goals for 2020, that multiple countries in the world signed, are coming closer. Like many other countries, the Netherlands has difficulties reaching their climate goal. A solution came from the Paris agreement in 2015, which sets new goals for 2030, and eventually for the long term in 2050. This time the Netherlands is eager to reach...

The predictions for the future foretell an increase of the amount of exported grain over the Rio Paraná/Rio de la Plata system of 63% in 2030. Besides this, the new Panama locks will be finished in 2015. Seeing as the current shipping standard is largely determined by the Panama locks, the general expectation is that the vessel dimensions will...

The thesis which appears here is excerpted from the book Integrated Coastal Zone Development via Building with Nature® (Waterman 2008a, 2008b). Although this approach was first applied in the Netherlands, it has gradually been recognized worldwide as a harmonious means of creating land areas for living, working, tourism & recreation, and...

In the early seventies the hydrocarbon development of the Beaufort Sea - McKenzie delta region started with the search for oil. To determine if hydrocarbon reserves were to be found a number of artificial exploration-islands were designed and built between 1973 and 1986. Artificial islands were chosen to function as drilling platforms because...

De snef groeiende luchtvaartsector in Nederland krijgt te maken met ruimtegebrek. Elk jaar stijgt het aantal vliegbewegingen en alle prognoses geven dezelfde explosieve groei voor de komende 15 tot 20 jaar. Het ruimtegebrek manifesteert zich in eerste instantie in de vorm van geluidshinder. Het grootste deel van alle vliegbewegingen in Nederland...

In november 1998 is in het IJmeer begonnen met de eerste fase van de aanleg van de eilandengroep genaamd IJburg. IJburg wordt met behulp van zandsuppletie aangelegd. De eilanden gelegen in het IJmeer worden aangelegd ten behoeve van de woningbouw om het te verwachten tekort aan woningen in Amsterdam in de toekomst op te vangen. In deze studie...

The main objective of this examination project is to present guidelines, which may accelerate the initial phase of artificial island design. The guidelines are restricted to the field of hydraulic engineering as only artificial islands in open sea are considered. Initially an extensive literature research was performed, not only with regard to...

A large-scale project such as the construction of an offshore island requires careful consideration not only of the direct effects of such intervention, but also of the implications for the further evolution of the Dutch coast. It is found that the construction of an offshore island is technically possible and - i f optimally shaped and...

Man-made islands in the Mackenzie river (Canada) for oil exploitation may obstruct the free flow of ice during spring break up. These ice dams may cause considerable rise of the water level in the rivers, resulting in floods. A numerical model is presented to simulate ice dam formation an river floods.

When longshore sediment transport is interrupted by a construction along a coast, e.g harbour moles or a dredged approach channel, the equilibrium of the coastline may be disturbed. When the disruption is caused by breakwaters, the longshore transport that is held back will cause accretion updrift of the breakwaters and erosion downdrift of them...

Norman Hells is situated on the north bank of the Mackenzie River, 145 km south of the Arctic Circle. The use of a pool-wide water flood system for secondary recovery and the features of the oil-bearing structure require six man-made platforms to provide vertical access to the portion of the oil pool that 1 ies beneath the Mackenzie River (60%)....
