Energent designed a waste heat recovery power system and the control logic for a ship engine in Japan. The heat source for the power system is hot air from an engine compressor on the engine. The engine itself is a main drive engine for cargo container ships.
The first photo illustrates the engine itself which is located in the Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding (“MES”) factory in Tamano Japan. The engine generates 7500kW of shaft power. The power generated from heat recovery is 200 kW.
The turbine generator is shown in the second photo. During operation the turbine was smooth and controllable and provided the basis for MES to enter a licensing agreement for this technology.
