First reference installation of Opcon Waste Heat Recovery technology for ships; potential for 5–10% fuel savings

Green Car Congress

Opcon, in collaboration with Wallenius Marine, recently completed the first reference installation of its Waste Heat Recovery technology for ocean-going vessels in a project supported by the Swedish Energy Agency. The Opcon systems generate electricity from low-value waste heat in the vessel’s steam and cooling system. This is a milestone in our efforts to adapt our pioneering technology for production of electricity from waste heat for use in marine applications.
