Hayo Hendrikse


Hayo Hendrikse holds MSc and PhD degrees in Civil Engineering from Delft University of Technology. His PhD work on ice-induced vibrations he executed part-time at NTNU as part of the SAMCoT project.

Dr. Hendrikse is a member of the board of studies of the Master Offshore and Dredging Engineering at TU Delft and a member of both the IAHR Ice Research and Engineering Committee and the International Committee of the Port and Ocean Engineering under Arctic conditions (POAC) community.


The main research topic of Dr. Hendrikse is dynamic ice-structure interaction. He currently leads the SHIVER research project which focusses on ice-induced vibrations of offshore wind turbines and collaborates in the WindySea project which is led by Aalto University and which builds on the experimental developments of SHIVER. Dr. Hendrikse further contributes with ice load models to the “NSF: Navigating the New Arctic (NNA) project”, a collaboration with SOEST, University of Hawaii at Manoa, focusing on safe shipping and operations in the Arctic region.

Besides these main activities, he recently started exploring the possibilities of climate engineering focusing on pumping sea water on top of the Arctic sea ice in winter to enhance ice growth.
