PROSPECTS FOR DIESEL EXHAUST ENERGY UTILIZATION ABOARD GREAT LAKES BULK CARRIERS

The rise of fuel prices above their traditional levels suggests that the thermal energy in diesel exhaust gas (waste heat) should be used by the Great Lakes ships in a manner similar to established ocean practice. This paper discusses the important generalities in this use, the magnitude of the energy source from several Great Lakes propulsion engines, and then outlines two schemes for its application by a self-unloading ore carrier of contemporary design. Brief economic analyses show that one scheme is attractive enough to justify more detailed consideration of its use in future ships.
