Offshore wind stands as a crucial contributor to generating clean, renewable energy, but the limited availability of shallow water locations restrains the potential of bottom-fixed wind. To unlock the vast wind energy potential in deeper waters, a substantial reduction in the Levelized cost of energy (LCOE) of floating wind technology is...

Wiegersma, Gerard (author)
Nuclear energy has found widespread application in navies across the globe. This thesis explores the potential integration of generation IV (very) Small Modular Reactor (SMR) technology for future surface combatants, focusing on the Very High-Temperature Reactor modelled as vSMR and a Molten Salt Reactor as SMR. The design impact of using...

Offshore wind farms are increasing in size and moving further from shore. Service operation vessels (SOVs) are used for offshore wind operation and maintenance (O&M) at these large far offshore sites. These large vessels typically have a smaller daughter craft (DC) on board that can assist them. This DC is however too small to provide the...

This thesis presents a data-driven design approach for emission reduction using bunker delivery notes (BDNs) to help support the revised IMO strategy to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by international shipping close to 2050. This research supports the Horizon Europe’s Digital Twin for Green Shipping (DT4GS) project which focuses on...

Shipowners need to prepare for low-emission fuel alternatives to meet the IMO 2050 goals. This is a complex problem due to conflicting objectives and a high degree of uncertainty. To help navigate this problem, this paper investigates how methods that take uncertainty into account, like robust optimization and stochastic optimization, could be...

The seaway trade market has expanded in the last years and container ship dimensions are constantly increasing for higher cargo capacity. In the early design stage, main dimensions are usually determined based on an existing ship database from which regression formulas are derived. In the present paper, a database of 260 non-sister container...

Keynote. The evolution of ship design from a manual toward a computer-aided, digital approach has been drastic after the 1970s, with the explosive development of computer hardware and software systems. In today’s era of smart digitalization in the frame of Industry 4.0, recently introduced digital/software tools and systems increase the...

van Wilsem, Rick (author)
The Jones Act, limited US port facilities, and absence of Jones Act-compliant installation vessels pose significant challenges for offshore wind farm installations. These factors force contractors to explore new installation strategies, such as feedering. Feedering is an installation strategy where the wind turbine installation vessel remains...

Ensuring sustainability in shipping extends beyond fuel choices to encompass the responsible use of materials in vessel construction and maintenance. Shifting from the prevailing 'take-make-dispose' model to a circular economy is crucial for enhancing sustainable waste reduction in the industry. Unlike consumer goods, current ship design...

In response to the leading narrative of increasing sustainability in the yachting sector, a research collaboration is started between the Delft University of Technology and Dykstra Naval Architects to examine the potential use of hydro generation on board sailing superyachts. By harvesting energy from the water flow when under sail, diesel...

de Ridder, Jesse (author)
The offshore wind market is rapidly growing, resulting in increasing wind turbine sizes, increasing distances to port, and a shift to deeper waters. A literature study in this thesis shows that existing wind turbine installation vessels, vessels under construction, and innovative concepts will not be able to install next-generation turbines or...

Due to the growing demand for offshore wind energy and the increasing wind turbine sizes, a shortage of capable installation vessels is anticipated by 2024. Consequently, the utilisation of heavy-lift vessels, previously not employed for bottom-founded or floating offshore wind turbine installations, may become imperative to realise the offshore...

The maritime industry faces a lot of uncertainty, and the energy transition has only increased this uncertainty. Ships will probably have to be converted to an alternative fuel during their lifetime and methanol seems to be the fuel with the most potential for offshore ships. By preparing for this, Design-for-Conversion to methanol, the costs of...

This thesis investigates the total environmental impact of various alternative marine energy carriers while taking the powering increase into account due to their disadvantageous spatial requirements compared to conventional fuel. A parametric design tool for bulk carriers, tankers, container ships, and trailing suction hopper dredgers has been...

The importance of comfort during transfer and stationing becomes a key performance parameter for large yacht design, on the same level as propulsive issues. Such a matter extends questions in terms of form and service demand to the motion behaviour of the unit in waves. Relevant studies refer to outdated hull forms not specific to modern large...

The adoption of alternative energy carriers is one of the key ways to meet the increasingly stricter emission regulations faced by shipping vessels from the international maritime organisation (IMO) and European Commission. To support this objective, this study examines the challenges and uncertainties associated with implementing a methanol...

This paper explores the design and feasibility of a 200-passenger, 30- to 40-knot emission-free ferry as a potential variant of the traditionally powered Coastal Cruiser 200 ferry currently operating in the Chinese Pearl River Delta. The Pearl River Delta is one of China’s most densely urbanized regions and faces numerous social, health, and...

This article examines the potential implications of using iron powder as an alternative fuel on the design and performance of container ships. Iron powder is a relatively new alternative energy carrier and one in which little research has been done into the application on-board vessels as part of the maritime energy transition. The key...

The prediction of the statutory attained subdivision index is a challenging issue for the initial design of ships due to the design freedom offered by a probabilistic damage stability assessment. To this end, optimisation techniques integrated with a parametric model of the internal layout may generate a preliminary subdivision design,...
