Namely, Orcan Energy inked a contract with CDWE in order to supply eight efficiency PACKs, for the recovery of waste heat onboard “Green Jade”.
To remind, Green Jade is the first Taiwan-built floating heavy lift offshore wind installation vessel.
As explained, the four installed dual-fuel engines will be each equipped with two efficiency PACKs, which use the waste heat from the engine cooling water and exhaust gases.
According to Orcan Energy, when all engines are running, more than 500 kW of electrical power is generated from waste heat on board the vessel.
Environmental considerations are an important element of Green Jade’s design. Waste heat recovery is a key technology in this respect, in addition to various other fuel-saving measures on board of the vessel. We chose Orcan Energy because the efficiency PACKs adapt optimally to load fluctuations and also work well at low loads.
..says Hedwig Vanlishout, CEO of CDWE.
Concluding, the ship is currently being built at the Kaohsing shipyard in Taiwan and is scheduled for deployment in 2022 in the flourishing local offshore wind market.
The use of excess waste heat is an important and economical component of the decarbonization of shipping.
…as Andreas Sichert, CEO of Orcan Energy, concluded.
