Engines in vessels and ships​

A ship is an energy island when it is sailing. Using the waste heat from on-board power generation, both mechanical and electrical, increases energy efficiency and results in fuel and cost savings during voyages. The added advantage in this application is that it uses seawater itself in the HRU system to cool the condenser. This means there is no need to implement any additional cooling systems (cooling tower, air cooler) as is necessary in most land-based applications. This latter aspect, together with the rising cost of fuel, means the system has a very short pay-back period.
