MHI says the waste heat recovery system ensures optimal energy recovery from exhaust gas and steam turbines

Maersk Line has placed an order for waste heat recovery systems from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), to be fitted on 11 mega-container carriers under construction by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering.

Including the new order, MHI will have supplied its proprietary system – which converts the heat from diesel exhaust gas into electrical power – to 69 Maersk vessels, including its 18,300 teu Triple-E series. With 87 systems delivered prior to this order, MHI claims to hold a 90% share in the global waste heat recovery system market.

The system is said to optimally control exhaust gas turbines and steam turbines to recover energy from waste heat across a wide range of engine loads. MHI introduced its technology in 2010 and has an installed base of 64 vessels, with the remainder on order or under construction.
