The amount of floating offshore wind farms under development has drastically increased over the past years as the technology becomes viable for pre-commercial and commercial scale projects. Projects of this size require a streamlined, efficient production of the complete floating offshore wind turbine (FOWT), not only for manufacturing the...

By nature port planning is a multidisciplinary activity. It involves expertise in the field of transport economics, shipping, nautical matters, safety and logistics. But also knowledge of waves and currents, sediment transport and coastal morphology, dredging and land reclamation, and design of breakwaters and quays. Hence port planning is...

Seaports across the globe form a critical lifeline for 90% of the international trade of goods. To ensure the safe and efficient handling of these goods and protect the hinterland from floods, seaports often construct and maintain a large array of hydraulic structures. Revetments and quay walls are a critical part of this infrastructure....

Expansions for future demand? How much capacity will be required? Until when the decision can be postponed? When to expand? What should be the magnitude of expansion? What is the position of such an investment? These are the kind of questions which a port authority is subjected to while making a decision to expand or develop a port. The decision...

Within the main geographical contexts of the North Sea and the Scheldt estuary, the Doelpolder area stands out for the conflictual relationships between human settlements, environmental crisis, and man-made infrastructures, which are all paradigms of the so-called Anthropocene era. The site comprises the village of Doel, the natural reserve of...

This report presents a new three step approach for developing a shared vision on the future development of the port of Rotterdam. The first step concerns a novel three layered framework for analysing future developments. In this step relevant trends are identified and placed in a broader 'meta'-perspective of a three layered framework, whereby...

van den Houten, Jorrit (author)
Large-scale infrastructure projects such as ports can have a significant impact on the development of nearby cities. While economic benefits of the port spill over to other regions, often internationally operating firms, port-cities experience negative externalities like environmental and land use issues and traffic congestion. Traditional port...

Sangster, S.J. (author)
Port locations are often selected to optimize access to land and navigable water. Many ports are therefore situated at the mouth of an estuary or along a coastline. Besides being economically important these locations are also often valuable from a biodiversity point of view. Human interventions along the coast such as port development often do...

Ports are beset with many uncertainties about their futures. They are confronted with new demands in terms of functions and scales, new external constraints, and changed expectations. The inability to adequately meet these demands can mean costly adaptations for a port, or loss of cargo and competitive position. A plausible reason is that the...

The importance of incorporating flexibility and adaptability in infrastructure is being increasingly recognized. Flexibility in infrastructure can prolong their economic lifetime by enabling them to adapt to the changed requirements. The objective of this paper is to examine if it is possible to incorporate flexibility in port infrastructure...

The present volatile environment continues to place new functional requirements on port infrastructure. As a result, the useful life of port infrastructure has reduced in recent years. Flexibility in infrastructure makes it possible to adapt them for new or changed use. The use of flexible and sustainable solutions infrastructures needs to be...

Port of Rotterdam Authority decided to construct Maasvlakte 2 to cope with demand for port areas. Maasvlakte 2 is a business case driven project. The outcome of the business case has led to the construction of an entire sea defense and the realization of port areas in phases, in response to client demand. The phased development results in the...

Container ships should only make very small horizontal movements at the berth for efficient (off loading of containers. This is especially a concern in ports directly facing the open ocean, where high swells at sea can cause harbour oscillations and low-frequency surge motions of the ship. Cavotec MSL has developed a new mooring unit, the...

Design engineers working in design and planning of urban and industrial areas are confronted more and more frequently with complex solution spaces, filled with hundreds of alternative combinations of possible sub-solutions supplied by a host of specialists. As a result of this, their quest for the optimum design tends increasingly to run aground...

This article describes the preliminary results of a study in the Port of Rotterdam to assess the carbon footprint of port infrastructures, In the study two types of port infrastructure have been selected, a road construction and a quay wall construction. For both structures the individual components of these structures were categorized to assess...

On one of the last remaining plots in the existing port (without the 2nd Maasvlakte), the Port of Rotterdam designed a terminal for the handling of steel slabs (“brammen”). The terminal required a massive quay wall to accommodate the panamax vessels with their heavy cargo. The quay wall is tendered under a design and construct contract. This...

This paper describes an innovative approach towards quay wall renovation design. In the “RDM Kraanbaan 13” project in Rotterdam, significant cost savings were made and environmental impact was minimised, while on a tight schedule and with limited information about the structure and its future use. Essential were a very practical and flexible...
