SERVICE RESULTS FROM A MEDIUM-SPEED DIESEL INTEGRATED PROPULSION SYSTEM

The Nathalie Delmas series of geared containerships include a number of innovative features of which the integrated propulsion system is the most significant. It was implemented with the aims of increasing the safety of the ship, reducing maintenance levels, simplifying the running of the machinery, reducing fuel consumption and facilitating crew tasks. The first year's service experience with the Nathalie Delmas and her sisterships is reviewed in this paper demonstrating that most of these objectives have been achieved. Various schemes for improving the overall efficiency of the ships by means of exhaust gas waste heat recovery are outlined and discussed.
