The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) will host its sixth technical meeting for the 2013-2014 season Thursday, February 20, 2014 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of Maran and Alpha Tankers, 354 Syngrou Ave., Kallithea, Athens. During the meeting, Dr.-Ing. Ioannis Vlaskos, Global Market Sector Director- Marine, Director – Large Engines & Gas Engines at Ricardo, Deutschland will speak on the subject of ‘‘Waste Heat Recovery in Marine Propulsion Systems’’.

Recovery of waste heat from marine engines is an important option for reducing the environmental footprint of ships. A host of technical approaches exist – most of which will be referred to in the presentation. Turbines directly utilizing an exhaust gas stream, reciprocating and rotary engines in various thermodynamic cycles, as well as absorption and adsorption cycles acting as heat transformers to adapt available “waste” heat to the needs of the respective vessel. Fuel reforming and direct electronic- or electro-chemical generation of electricity from heat flux are amongst the more rarely considered options for application in ships. The speaker will present results of work at Ricardo concerning the basic science of waste heat recovery technologies, as well as well as their implementation to actual plants. He will emphasize on solutions especially suited for ships, such as traditional turbo compound systems, Stirling, Ericsson, and Organic Rankine cycles, as well as thermoelectric generators.

After the meeting hors d’oeuvres, wine, soft drinks, etc. will be served.

The participation fee is €5 for members and students and €10 for nonmembers, which will be paid at the entrance prior to the start of the meeting.
