DEVELOPMENT OF MITSUBISHI ADVANCED WASTE HEAT RECOVERY SYSTEM FOR MOTOR SHIPS

Following the oil crisis in 1973, energy saving has become one of the most important world-issues. In marine transportation and shipbuilding, energy saving for ship machinery can be achieved in two ways: by the adoption of a Diesel engine with low fuel consumption as the main engine and by the recovery and effective use of waste heat from the main engine. This paper describes the Mitsubishi Advanced Waste Heat Recovery System for motor ships, which has been developed from the waste heat recovery system so far used and features a comparatively large output through application of a dual pressure type exhaust gas economiser.
