This paper is based on sea experience with seven ships fitted with reheat plant (plus three ships on order). Existing steam conditions for marine reheat plant are 520 degrees C and 98 bar but with advanced design of auxiliaries this can be increased to 540 degrees C and 174 bar with improved fuel consumption. Reheat plant is the most practical way of reducing the effect of soaring fuel prices.
