- Project Dates: September 2016 - March 2017
- Project Leader: Dr Dawei Wu
- Sponsors: EPSRC
- Partners: Shipbuilders and Shiprepairers Association; Meyer Werft; Viking Line ABP
The project aims to further develop partnerships with the Shipbuilders and Shiprepairers Association, the world-leading liquid natural gas (LNG) ferry manufacturer, Meyer Turku, and the operator, Viking Line, via preliminary research to develop a conceptual system for effective reutilisation of waste thermal and cryogenic energy. Real-time recoverable cryogenic and thermal energy will be identified through field tests; the potential energy efficiency increase of the test ship will be demonstrated; and strong research links will be established with key industry partners in the UK marine sector to develop further collaborative research initiatives.
