Maersk Line Awarded Navy Energy Conservation Contract

Thursday, October 28, 2010

Maersk Line, Limited (MLL) has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division (NSWCCD), to assess and apply Advanced Waste Heat Recovery (AWHR) technology to Military Sealift Command (MSC) ships. The contract involves a two-phase approach. In phase one, MLL will conduct a detailed analysis to determine which MSC ships will generate the greatest return on investment from the use of AWHR technology. Based on the findings, MLL may then lead the installation of such systems in phase two.

AWHR systems capture energy from the hot exhaust of ship engines and use the heat as a source of power to reduce fuel consumption, which is a ship's single largest operating cost. The systems also cut emission of CO2, sulfur and nitrous oxides, and particulate matter.
