Scanship has signed a co-operation agreement with TEGma to offer thermoelectric technology for producing electricity directly from waste heat on board cruise ships.
“With this solution, we can improve the energy efficiency on board, reducing use of fossil fuels and improving the overall environmental performance,” explained Scanship’s CEO, Henrik Badin.
TEGma’s thermoelectric system produces electricity directly from waste heat, using a proprietary system involving no emissions, no noise, no moving parts – and with no maintenance required.
TEGma is owned by Scatec, known for its involvement in renewable energy and advanced materials.
This solution is already in use on board a Scandinavian ferry and has received Approval in Principle (AiP) by DNV GL for use on ships.
“TEGma is proud to contribute to reduced emissions from the shipping industry. We’re looking forward to rolling out our thermoelectric technology in the cruise ship industry together with Scanship,” said TEGma’s CTO, Torleif Tollefsen.
Scanship, which is involved in waste and wastewater management in the cruise ship industry, is now integrating TEGma’s solution on its systems and a portfolio of engine waste heat solutions.
The first Scanship products to incorporate TEGma’s solutions are maritime incinerators. Under favourable conditions, all the electricity needed to operate the incinerator can be extracted from the waste heat in the flue gas, while maintaining IMO MARPOL’s emission requirements.
