Climeon has introduced the next generation of Climeon HeatPower – Climeon HeatPower 300 Marine – to the cruise industry at Seatrade Cruise Global in Miami this week.
Climeon HeatPower 300 Marine is a waste heat recovery product optimised for marine conditions and designed to generate clean energy from on board, low-temperature waste heat.
It will assist shipowners and operators to increase their ships energy efficiency, reduce fuel consumption and decrease carbon emissions, thus achieving regulatory compliance and helping to make sustainable shipping a reality, the company claimed.
The system will also continue to deliver conversion efficiency at low temperatures and seamless automation, due to its Climeon Live control system. Moreover, it is of a modular construction, which allows for custom delivery, optimised for the project specific ship design and operational profile.
“We are thrilled to introduce Climeon’s HeatPower 300 Marine WHR product to the cruise industry at the world’s premier marine cruise event, Seatrade Cruise Global. As shipowners, shipyards and design houses strive to make cruise ships more energy efficient, we’re excited to present a maritime-optimised waste heat recovery platform that combines environmental, fiscal and operational benefits,” said Fredrik Thoren, Executive Vice President, Head of Marine, Climeon (pictured).
Delivered as a solid, compact unit containing all the required components for efficient low-temp ORC waste heat recovery, Climeon HeatPower 300 can be integrated swiftly and requires minimal maintenance, thus providing low OPEX costs and an attractive ROI, the company said.
It has been designed for the harsh and challenging environment at sea. It can generate carbon-free electricity from waste heat at temperatures as low as 85 deg C, which enables clean energy to be generated solely from on board jacket cooling water.
Designed to be easily integrated on both newbuildings and existing ships, the Climeon HeatPower 300 Marine gives shipowners the opportunity to meet increasing EEDI, EEXI and CII regulations, while minimising expenditure, avoiding operational disruption and future-proofing their vessels.
By doing so, Climeon’s ORC WHR system can increase the energy efficiency of newbuildings, current fleets and facilitate a new era of low-carbon shipping, the company claimed.
