SHIPBOARD HEAT RECOVERY PROGRAM FOR U.S. MERCHANT SHIPS

The feasibility of recovering waste energy aboard U.S. Flag ships has been investigated. Utilizing a combination of heat sources, about 300 kw of power can be recovered from a typical 24000 hp steam ship. Small inland waterways diesel powered ships (approximately 2800 SHP) offer a promising opportunity to recover waste stack heat. Typical hardware layouts are presented based on the use of Freons as the Rankine Cycle power fluid.
