While the case studies and projections made in the paper are related to a particular engine type and size together with an individual class of ship, they illustrate the benefits that can be obtained generally by adopting a broad approach to engine/installation design rather than by trying to maximize sectional advantages. This paper concentrates on wasteheat recovery as a topical issue due to the constant striving to reduce fuel consumption, shows how, on a relatively small vessel, routine diesel electric generation can be eliminated, saving some 2.5 tons of fuel per day. This philosophy can be extended to other areas of marine propulsion design with ultimate benefit to the shipowner.
