Deep-sea mining less harmful to environment thanks to new ‘minerals collector’

. Rudy Helmons, onderzoeker Offshore and Dredging engineering, ontwierp in samenwerking met IHC Mining de collector 2.0. Een op waterdruk gestuurde ‘stofzuiger’ die grondstoffen op de zeebodem verzamelt waarbij minder sediment opgepakt wordt en minder water verloren gaat.

TU Delft has developed software that makes it possible to calculate the risks of contamination with the corona virus for a specific area. The model virtually places a sick person in a room and simulates how quickly the virus particles spread. This can be used to calculate how safe it is in areas such as airplanes, classrooms or restaurants.

DIMI Stories: There’s still room on the water! by Prof. Rudy Negenborn

Freight transport by water is cheaper and uses less energy than by road. What’s more, there’s more room on the water than on our congested roads. We could fully exploit these benefits by first solving a few notorious bottlenecks, such as container ships that aren’t loaded to capacity, suboptimal vessel navigation and congested locks.

How can transport on the Rhine between Rotterdam / Antwerp and Basel be improved? That is the central question in the Novimove research program: Novel inland waterway transport concepts for moving freight effectively. The European Commission has allocated nearly € 9 million to this four-year program from Horizon 2020, the Framework Program for Research and Innovation.

Millions of euros to improve to improve the Rhine-Alpine freight corridor

Container ships that aren’t fully loaded, congested locks resulting in long waits for vessels, suboptimal navigation of ships on rivers and fully loaded ships that cannot cope with low water levels. These are common problems on inland waterways. The Horizon 2020 programme ‘Novel inland waterway transport concepts for moving freight effectively’ (NOVIMOVE) is going to use a European grant of almost 9 million euros to conduct research on how to improve the logistics of this transport system.

TU Delft develops coach boat running on hydrogen

Going by the name H2 Coach Boat, TU Delft is joining a consortium consisting of maritime companies, the Sailing Innovation Centre and the Watersportverbond (Water Sports Federation) to develop a clean coach boat for the sport of sailing, with propulsion based on hydrogen in combination with electricity. The aim is to drastically reduce carbon emissions in the sport of sailing. Klaas Visser, researcher in Marine Engineering at TU Delft is leading the research team of maritime students who have completed a feasibility study, among other things, in cooperation with several companies from the marine sector and who are focusing on reducing boat emissions.
