Position: Dynamic Mooring Analysis Engineer

Keywords: Dynamic Mooring Analysis, Maritime technology, ship motions, Python, Matlab

Our Company: Royal HaskoningDHV is a globally leading service provider in the field of Maritime Services and Developments. We have a strong reputation for designing and managing port developments, shipyards, dry docks, port terminals and other maritime structures. We work on many high-profile projects on behalf of public and private developers at locations across the world, making us the first port of call for maritime consultancy.

One of our expertises is understanding the behaviour of moored ships in ports and coastal waters. We study the behaviour of a moored ship subjected to wind, waves, current and/or passing vessels using dedicated software. We call this a Dynamic Mooring Analysis (DMA in short). A DMA involves the study of mooring configurations and locations and the possibilities to improve the mooring to enable higher throughputs in ports and/or ensure safer mooring. With the ever-growing ship sizes, busier ports and an increasing number of berths exposed to waves a DMA has become more and more relevant in port engineering.

The vacancy: As DMA Engineer you will be in principle responsible for carrying out Dynamic Mooring Analysis (DMA) studies and projects in cooperation with our DMA team to assist and advise our top Clients. You will be an important member of our DMA team based in Rotterdam, where you will:

  • develop and expand the capabilities of the DMA team,
  • take responsibility in talking to and understanding our Clients, with the aim to translate their questions in actual proposals/offers best suited to provide them with usable and valuable answers,
  • work with our existing DMA team and other Maritime colleagues,
  • contribute to new developments in the field of DMA services.

The types of projects we do involve a wide range of ship sizes and types, locations (exposed, sheltered, in-port) and Clients (private, public, semi-public). The goal of these DMA studies is often to determine expected downtime or maximum forces in mooring arrangements.

Profile

You are a maritime engineer (MSc in Maritime Technology, 0-5 years working experience) with a passion for ship motions and port developments. You are looking to improve our way of working through programming, for various clients with exciting and challenging projects in an international environment.

In addition you have:

  • proven experience in programming (Matlab, Python)
  • good oral and written communication skills

What we offer: We offer you the opportunity to become part of a group of passionate highly qualified people working together to realise port developments around the world. Our work is centred around the skills of our staff, getting the best out of the whole team. We offer flexibility in working hours, and can offer an attractive remuneration package.

Boskalis – Graduate Student

Boskalis Subsea Cables & Flexibles, specialises in subsea power cable installation for offshore wind farms, Balance of Plant maintenance for the renewables market, and umbilical/flowline installation for the oil & gas markets and installation of interconnectors. These submarine power cables will be installed using advanced Cable Lay Vessels (CLVs). Weather conditions limits have to be calculated for the cable installation, since the cables are a very delicate product. Previous in-house thesis assignment proved a strong relation for normal cable lay, indicated in the figure, between the vessels chute velocity and cable axial compression, which is one of the failure modes.

Assignment
Multiple boundary conditions determine the installability of the submarine power cable.

The purpose of this thesis assignment is to analyse the relation between operational limitations to motion behaviour of either the vessel or lifting arrangement the different boundary conditions, such as water depth, vessel stand-of distance, cable properties, etc. Besides, a practical implementation of motion behaviour limitation offshore on the CLVs is part of the assignment, which is an unique chance to learn both the technical and practical part of the offshore industry.

Student profile
Graduating for Boskalis Subsea is more than just having an interesting job. It’s about joining a highly skilled team of ambitious professionals. It’s about thriving in a challenging and stimulating work environment in a results-driven culture. It’s also about joining Europe’s market leader in subsea cabling and becoming part of the Boskalis family. We are looking for:

  • A student offshore or marine engineering, with strong interest in hydrodynamic calculations and usage of the advanced modelling software such as Orcaflex, Ansys AQWA and the programming language Python.
  • A motivated and enthusiastic person who is eager to develop his/her skills.
  • Good knowledge of the English language, both written and spoken.
  • A good analytical thinker who is creative, proactive and likes to work in a team.

Period
Preferred starting date is the 1st of September 2018. Start at a later time is negotiable.

Payment
Boskalis Subsea Cables & Flexibles offers an attractive financial compensation during graduation thesis.

Location
Boskalis Subsea Cables & Flexibles is located at the Boskalis head office in Papendrecht which has a shuttle bus going to Baanhoek train station in Sliedrecht.

Deltares – Internship: Effects of strategical dredging on saltwater intrusion

Recently, a dredging project to deepen the Nieuwe Waterweg has started. Deepening this
channel improves the accessibility of the Port of Rotterdam, but also causes more sea water
to propagate land inward. Several studies have been conducted (and some are still ongoing)
on measures to counteract the effects of the deepening on the salt intrusion in the shipping
channel and adjacent areas.

Last year, Rijkswaterstaat introduced a new idea to reduce saltwater intrusion into the
harbours. Since the shipping channel already has to be dredged on a regular basis in order to
maintain a certain navigation depth, the idea came up to dredge more strategically and
create additional trenches. By adapting the bathymetry very locally, additional mixing might
be introduced (e.g. blockage of the flow, inducing internal waves, spiral motion of the flow)
which may result in a decrease of the salt wedge intrusion.
The goal of the internship is to explore the possible effects of several dredging strategies on
the saltwater intrusion and to indicate which physical mechanisms are most important in
this process. During the internship, you will perform a desk study focussing on identifying the
relevant physical mechanisms. You will have to organise interviews and meetings with
several experts within and outside Deltares to gather the necessary knowledge while
keeping an overview and working towards the overall project aim.

Interested?
Deltares is looking for an enthusiastic MSc student with an interest in hydrodynamics,
turbulence and stratified flows that would like to work on this topic for 3 to 4 months as a
student intern. Preferred start is in April 2018, but this is open for discussion.
To apply, please send a motivation letter, CV and list of grades obtained during the BSc and
MSc programme to Julien.Groenenboom@deltares.nl
