In this lecture the financing aspects and their influence on the design choices will be discussed. An overview will be provided of all aspects involved in the realization of these offshore wind farms, such as design, construction and installation of turbines and platforms. In addition the technical and operational aspects of the record breaking Dolwin converter station will be presented, which is a combination of a semi-submersible and gravity based platform. This lecture is offered in conjunction with the KIVI section for Civil Engineering. Sandwiches beforehand and drinks afterwards are offered with the compliments of Van Oord and TenneT. TECHNOSTARTERS 16 OCTOBER 2014 | KIVI BUILDING THE HAGUE, START AT 17.00 H JASPER WINKES Founder of Fistuca JELTE KYMMELL Managing director at Mocean MARTIJN KOPPERT Director at Bargemaster REMKO LUYTEN Director at Offshore Indepentents The speakers of this evening all had innovative ideas about brand new technologies and methodologies, that lead to the start of their own companies. During the short existence of their companies, they have gained valuable experience that they will share with the attendees. What went right and wrong during their startup, how to make optimal use of the (limited) means available, what pitfalls came along the way, and what are the key aspects to develop a successful company? Sandwiches beforehand and drinks afterwards are offered with the compliments of IRO. CHALLENGES OF THE OLYMPUS DEVELOPMENT 20 NOVEMBER 2014 | SHELL, KESSLER PARK 1, RIJSWIJK ROBERT PATTERSON Executive Vice President Project & Engineering Services at Shell The Mars B development is the first of its kind in the sense as a brownfield development that expands an existing oil field operation in the Gulf of Mexico. A major feat of teamwork and collaboration overcame numerous challenges and successfully delivered a number of innovations and technology firsts that will be discussed during this presentation. At the entrance you will be asked for your identification (passport or driving license). Registration latest on 13 November. Sandwiches beforehand and drinks afterwards are offered with the compliments of Shell. LEWEK CONSTELLATION – A GAME CHANGER IN REEL LAY 11 DECEMBER 2014 | HUISMAN, ADMIRAAL TROMPSTRAAT 2, SCHIEDAM GERARD VELTHOEN Project Manager Vessel Assets & Machinery at EMAS HUGO HEITLING Technical Superintendent at EMAS EMAS’s newest addition to the fleet, Lewek Constellation, features an 800mt multi-lay system built by Huisman that combines capabilities for pipe laying in flexible mode, reel-lay mode and J-lay mode. Due to the modular approach, pipe can be spooled in parallel with the critical path of pipe laying. The presentation will provide insight in EMAS’s worldwide pipelay operation with a focus on the Lewek Constellation’s capabilities and its contribution to these activities. Additionally, a tour around the Huisman facilities will be given. At the entrance you will be asked for your identification (passport or driving license). Sandwiches beforehand and drinks afterwards are offered with the compliments of Huisman. STRUCTURE INSTALLATION: FROM ANALYTICAL CHALLENGE TO IMPLEMENTATION 15 JANUARY 2015 | KIVI BUILDING THE HAGUE BART GERRITSMA Unit Head Engineering at Allseas The installation of subsea structures is a challenging process. Allseas has spent many years optimising an applied analytical model to prove the installation of these structures can be performed within the installation criteria. The presentation will cover the selection process of the optimised analytical method and will show successful installations of different subsea (pipeline) structures, thereby directly providing answers to the question of whether the analytical model is found to be acceptable. Sandwiches beforehand and drinks afterwards are offered with the compliments of Allseas. FLOATING LNG PRODUCTION – CLOSE TO REALITY 19 FEBRUARY 2015 | SBM, KAREL DOORMANWEG 66, SCHIEDAM WIM VAN WIJNGAARDEN Consultant Gas Technology, SBM Schiedam CHRISTIAN BAUDUIN Manager Concept Department, SBM Monaco An eye-catching development of SBM Offshore concerns the “Twin-Hull conversion FLNG”, offering a FLNG unit based on the conversion of two MOSSType LNG carriers, which will be structurally interconnected to form the Twin-Hull. The hull lay-out and its hydrodynamic performance, and the dual nitrogen processing plant will be presented. With the turret for Shell’s Prelude project nearing completion, the turnkey delivery of large gas turrets will be presented as well. Registration latest on 16 February. Sandwiches beforehand and drinks afterwards are offered with the compliments of SBM Offshore. PIPELAY- AND INTERVENTION TOWERS FOR THE OFFSHORE INDUSTRY 19 MARCH 2015 | ROYAL IHC, SCHAARDIJK 24, KRIMPEN A/D IJSSEL MARTIN BINGHAM Director of Technology at IHC Engineering Business FLORIAN VAN DEN BROEK Managing Director at IHC Offshore Systems In recent years Royal IHC designed, manufactured and installed a number of handling towers for pipelay- and well Intervention operations on offshore construction vessels. IHC will take the audience through the design process up to the realisation of such complex structures. Besides a number of typical design challenges the lecture will include lessons learned from manufacturing and the offshore operation. A tour around the yard and on board of one of the vessels currently under construction is part of the programme. Registration latest on 13 March. At the entrance you will be asked for identification. Sandwiches beforehand and drinks afterwards are offered with the compliments of IHC. ARCTIC RESEARCH IN OPERATION & AWARD CEREMONY BEST OFFSHORE GRADUATE 16 APRIL 2015 | TU DELFT, MEKELWEG 2, DELFT WIM JOLLES Canatec ANDREI METRIKINE Professor at TU Delft JEROEN HOVING PhD at TU Delft RENATE VAN VLIET PhD at TU Delft/Shell CHRIS KEIJDENER PhD at TU Delft/NTNU DANIELA MYLAND PhD at TU Delft/HSVA Future operations in Arctic regions impose great challenges that require the brightest ideas and the newest technologies. It is for this reason that the Arctic is the topic of many recent research programs. As will be demonstrated by presentations of PhD researchers, their projects have a strong link with technology and operations. Gaining operational experience is difficult in these conditions, however, there is quite some practical know-how already, that could be used in current research work. During this science-oriented evening, the ceremony for awarding the best Offshore Graduate Student will take place. Please check the KIVI website for a complete overview of the programme. RECORD BREAKING SEMI-SUBMERSIBLE CRANE VESSEL 21 MAY 2015 | KIVI BUILDING THE HAGUE / 19.00 -19.15H GENERAL MEETING OF THE OFFSHORE TECHNOLOGY SECTION ANNE DE GROOT Manager Project Department at Huisman Equipment SIPKE SCHUURMANS Sr. Project Manager at Heerema Marine Contractors With two record breaking Huisman cranes of 10,000mt each, Heerema renews its semi-submersible crane vessel scheme to maintain and enhance its position in the heavy lifting industry. The development of the 10,000mt Tub Mounted Cranes has led Huisman to reinvent its crane design philosophy. In a combined presentation, Heerema and Huisman will present some remarkable design efforts to ensure a seamless match between the vessel and crane designs. Sandwiches beforehand and drinks afterwards are offered with the compliments of Heerema and Huisman.
