TU Delft intensifies research into floating wind turbines

TU Delft intensifies research into floating wind turbines

If it is up to the European Commission, all the energy used will come from renewable sources by 2050. Achieving this goal will require the large-scale use of floating wind turbines, says Axelle Viré, wind expert at TU Delft. ‘Although the technology is still in its infancy, it has enormous potential,’ she explains. ‘To capitalise on this potential, TU Delft is launching the Floating Renewables Lab: a lab facility that will tie together all the elements of the development chain for floating wind turbines and other offshore renewables with the help of numerical models and AI.’

Marcel Stive delivers his last Doctor of Philosophy

Marcel Stive delivers his last Doctor of Philosophy

On March 31th, Dr. Thu-Ha Nguyen successfully defended her thesis on wave-overtopping processes for very mild sloping and shallow foreshores, supervised by Marcel Stive and Bas Hofland. For Marcel, this was a special occasion, as Thu-Ha was his last PhD in his role of promotor here at TU Delft. Starting back in 2003 with a tall Dutchman who obtained his degree with a thesis on Argus video imaging, Marcel has acted as the promotor of no fewer than 51 PhD candidates, 46 at TU Delft and 5 at other academic institutes.
