Waste heat recovery on liquefied natural gas-fuelled ships

The project WHR Maritime aims at deriving guidelines with respect to the optimal utilization of waste heat sources on-board and identifying the optimal design, implementation and control of ORC units at LNG-fuelled ships. The project will include numerical analyses as well as a demonstration of a prototype ORC unit in the workshop at DTU Mechanical Engineering. The possibilities for an on-board demonstration on a vessel will also be evaluated. In addition to DTU Mechanical Engineering, the project includes the following partners: MAN Diesel & Turbo, Alfa Laval, Fjord Line and Lloyd’s Register Marine. WHR Maritime is funded by The Danish Maritime Fund, Orients Fund, European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and the project partners.
