Master Graduation Thesis - Reduction of underwater noise
Are you the one that helps us to reduce underwater noise?
Within Heerema the Innovation Department develops innovative solutions that will allow Heerema to remain leader in the niche market of heavy lift installation and removal and ultra-deep water Pipelay.
For the installation of offshore structures, HMC is increasingly confronted with regulations regarding the amount of noise produced during underwater pile driving, to reduce the environmental impact on marine life. In this context, HMC is investigating reduction of underwater noise generated by offshore piling activities.
Within the Innovation team we are looking for a MSc thesis student to investigate the possibility of performing a structural topology optimization of pile driving equipment in such a way that the equipment will produce a force time diagram in the pile, which radiates less noise to the water surrounding the pile, whilst maintaining good drivability.

- Enrolled in a Technical University program, such as mechanical engineering or offshore engineering;
- Affinity for structural dynamics / topology optimization;
- A hands-on-mentality;
- Affinity with the offshore industry;
- Good communication skills;
