HFC-245FA ORC SYSTEM RECOVERING WASTE HEAT ABOARD LARGE SHIPS, SELECTED FOR THE EU «LEANSHIPS» RESEARCH PROJECT

04.07.2016

An HFC-245fa based Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) system is being developed as part of the UE funded “LeanShips” research project, aiming at reducing the environmental impact of large ships.

The company’s contribution to the LeanShips project is to develop an innovative heat recovery solution using the ORC technology on diesel or natural gas propulsion, for large ships, especially boats cruise and ferries.

The ORC system manufacturer has developed specific modules for the heat recovery from diesel engine exhausts of ships and freighters, improving by up to 10% the fuel economy.
