Project Details


PilotORC is aimed at evaluating the technical and economic feasibility of using an organic Rankine cycle (ORC) unit for recovering low-temperature waste heat on container vessels. The project includes numerical analyses and a demonstration of a 110 kW ORC unit utilizing the waste heat of the main engine cooling system on-board one of Maersk’s container vessels. The retro-fitting potential and the matureness of using ORC units for maritime applications will be evaluated. The project is funded by the Danish Maritime Fund and A.P. Moeller - Maersk.
