New regulations call for action
The new International Maritime Organization regulations for Sulphur and CO2 emissions are presenting a challenge for ship owners. The new regulations, when implemented, will benefit the environment. The general cruise line, ferry and cargo customer is becoming more aware of environmental sustainability, and opting for options that will leave a smaller CO2 footprint.
Untapped waste heat
Ships’ generates large amounts of waste heat- With the Climeon Heat Power system, cruise, ferry and cargo ships can transform that waste heat into clean, sustainable electricity - what was previously a costly liability is instead turned into an asset. The Climeon system will drastically reduce the need of diesel used in generators leading to lower fuel usage and lower sulfur emissions. Your customers will know the electricity used in the cabins - for lighting, showering, charging etc. is 100% clean and free from fossil fuels.
Increase genset efficiency by lowering fuel cost and reducing the amount of Sulfur and CO₂ emitted.
Short payback time
Leading payback time enabled by the world’s most efficient low temperature system.
Plug and play design allows for fast and easy integration with plants existing systems with limited disruption.
Viking Line became a customer in 2014. Climeon's Heat Power system can be found on their environmentally friendly passenger ferry - Viking Grace. In 2015, Viking Line announced to expand their cooperation with Climeon. The system will be deployed on all new ships, and an evaluation for retrofit on existing ships has been initiated.
The Heat Power process
The Climeon Heat Power system is built using modular units and can be dismantled easily, enabling retrofit on existing ships, without disrupting daily operations.
The Climeon Heat Power system exploits the temperature difference between hot and cold water or gas to generate clean electricity. At the same time less CO2 emissions are released into the atmosphere.
Efficient, economical, profitable
The Climeon system combines high efficiency conversion of heat to electricity with a low cost, providing significant savings in fuel and electricity costs.
The proprietary technology operates at a lower pressure than traditional heat power solutions utilizing an Organic Rankine Cycle, ORC. The decrease in pressure allows our units to be smaller while still having double the efficiency of traditional ORC.
Climeon's ability to utilize low temperatures (70-120°C) with 50% higher efficiencies than other solutions makes it the global leader of low temp heat conversion technology.
What comparable benefit does Climeon deliver on a ship?
The Climeon control system, Climeon Live, is a state of the art, customizable PLC. Each Climeon module is outfitted with multiple sensors. Climeon takes this data and optimizes performance in real time, to ensure maximum energy generation. Climeon Live identifies potential faults before they arise, minimizing the risk of unplanned downtime. Climeon Live's API can also be integrated into external control systems, offering a valuable PR-message with emission-savings and clean electricity production output. Climeon live can also store data directly to the cloud for reverence and allow for remote control and monitoring.
